America as Church
by Jonas Weaver
America has its creed – the Constitution, specifically the Amendments.
America has it’s own, Credo! – the Pledge.
America has it’s own worship anthems – the National Anthem, America the Beautiful.
The only real, true difference between the Christ’s Church and America is this: one uses weapons of war and violence to maintain its liturgies and habits. The other follows the way of a dead (risen) King who throws away violence and instead offers his Body and Blood as the way in which our habits are maintained and formed.
