In just the last year, the conversation around Christian nationalism has changed dramatically. What was once a more agreed-upon slur is now being embraced as a badge of honor. But the reality is that Christian nationalism actually corrupts Christianity and at its core, is antithetical to the Gospel. On today’s episode, Keith discusses this phenomenon with Paul D. Miller, author of the recent book, The Religion of American Greatness: What’s Wrong with Christian Nationalism. Paul provides a helpful, formal definition of Christian nationalism, explaining what is (and what isn’t). Listen as he answers questions like: Should churches take part in patriotic celebrations? If America loses its Christian faith, will our democracy crumble? Is embracing “America first” ideology considered nationalism? Does nationalism lead to segregated societies? Why does Christian nationalism thrive in certain environments over others? Why are so many self-proclaimed Christian nationalists drawn to Trump? Finally, Paul ends by sharing three tests you can use to make sure you’re not falling into Christian nationalism yourself. You won’t want to miss this one!
