Christian Nationalists :: By Bill Wilson

The news media, radical leftists, and the Democratic Party are labeling conservative Christians as new Nazis. The direct term is “Christian Nationalists,” a radical brand of Christianity that is detrimental to the “state” because it believes the values of the Christian faith should be represented in government.

Politico investigative reporter Heidi Przybyla said on February 22nd’s edition of MSNBC’s “All In” that Christian nationalists, not Christians, believe rights come from God. She said they are problematic because “they believe that our rights as Americans, as all human beings, don’t come from any earthly authority; they don’t come from Congress; they don’t come from the Supreme Court; they come from God.”

This is antithetical to the American form of government. The Declaration of Independence clearly stated that no authority other than God gave us rights. The Declaration says:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

This is the exact opposite of what Przbyla and her Marxist minions believe is the construct of American civil rights. From the time of Plato to Thomas Hobbes to John Locke in the 1600s, to our Founding Fathers in the 1700s to Marx in the 1800s, men attempted to define the need of government in society.

Plato wrote of a utopian communistic society, as did Hobbes, who used Biblical imagery in his essay “Leviathan” to describe the all-powerful government. Marx wanted to ban all religion. Their systems essentially focused on the idea that man is inherently evil and must be strongly governed by a “benevolent” sovereign. Locke, however, saw that God created man in his own image, gave him dominion over the earth, and gave him laws by which to live. Locke believed these inalienable God-given rights were those of life, freedom, and property. He believed that governments were needed to impartially enforce the laws of God. In other words, man would give up some of his freedom for the protection of government in civil society. Otherwise, he should be left to prosper by his own value add, which is his labor.

Founder John Adams said:

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

The rule of law is the law of freedom instituted by God. When the law of God is written in our hearts, we want to do what is right because we embody the righteousness of God.

The law in stone—where man does what is right in his own eyes–results in the kind of culture we have today, where law is used to undermine families, religion, and the community as a whole.

May we be a Jeremiah 31:32 people as the Lord declared:

“I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”

Christians participating in government and guided by God’s Word–Christian nationalism–is what the Founders intended. No wonder the enemies of God label it a threat.
