Well 4th of July is a little over a month away. I must admit I dread the Sunday falling near this holiday.
My coworkers and I had an intense debate about the appropriateness of patriotic (nationalistic) songs in church on the 4th of July weekend.
My own experience has given me a negative attitude toward patriotic showings in church. I find it tragic that members of our church sing more fervently in a song that praises the greatness of the United States of America than in a song that praises God. Sometimes I feel that the United States of America, is the most stealthy idol invading our faith today.
What about you? Where do you fall on this topic? Is it relevant enough to discuss?
