I was driving past a home in my neighborhood with two flagpoles in the yard. On one pole – The Star Spangled Banner; on the other??? (I can’t make this stuff up…) It had a white flag with a Jesus-fish filled in with the stars and stripes and the words “Proud American Christian”. (Google it, or click here, and see what I mean!)
What a crock! No humility whatsoever. That flag betrays the faith at almost every level. The term “Christian” is thoroughly hijacked. The people that live there need desperately to actually open their Bible and read it. Jesus on the cross dying a naked, shameful death is our flag – the image of God coming to his own to be crowned King of the Jews. It is neither proud nor American. But otherwise a good name for it, I suppose.
