The recent uproar in Virginia about the removal of a statue should be a non issue. Because I believe that we shouldn’t have any monuments to celebrate man. None of em…George Washington, MLK, Abe Lincoln, veterans…whoever. Like all of us, people of fame are all sinful people, and should never be exalted.
I know that it may just be me, but I sincerely believe that patriotism is one of the most evil idolatries out there. You’re familiar with the mantras to false gods that exalt man in the idolatry of patriotism… God and country, the pledge of allegiance, In God we trust, God bless America. These are all lies that honor man & patriotism, and not the true God.
The Lord Jesus Christ is that name above all names that should be exalted. Some people might say, “thank a vet for your freedom.” And they’re certainly free to thank whoever they want. But I thank the Lord Jesus Christ.
Incidentally, I live in the south, the Houston area to be exact. And now in light of the Virginia uproar, there’s buzz about removing our Sam Houston statue. And I say, fantastic, tear it down…tear down all monuments to man.
