Related to Christian nationalism is this quote from the Experimental Theology blog that resonates with me in this day
“ The prophetic imagination is the capacity to imagine that God can speak–and is speaking!–a word of indictment against you.
When we lack this capacity God is “captured” by the status quo. God comes to endorse, baptize, sacralize, legitimize, and spiritually underwrite your political party, church, tribe, social position, and nation. This is how, for example, Constantinianism leads to idolatry. An identity relationship is formed between God and Country. Speak against America and you’re speaking against God.
The prophetic imagination, by contrast, is the capacity to imagine that America stands under God’s judgment. “. Experimental Theology: Will the Real Christianity Please Stand Up!: Part 5, The Prophetic Imagination
I hesitate to post this as it could get political in a heartbeat, so try to keep discussion on the ideas and not the politics, or we will have to close discussion.
