Can Christians Be Nationalists? Part 2: What Is the Church?

Despite the obvious fact that globalists regard conservative Christians as enemies, many Christians are tempted to assist the globalist cause and they justify their decision by misinterpreting certain Bible verses. While we will look at these key Bible verses in detail later on, it is first necessary establish what exactly the Bible says the Church is. A misunderstanding of what the Church is lies at the root of much of the confusion regarding the contemporary Christians position on nationalism and globalism.

The Church is the body of Christ, the congregation of all those who have been born again in the Spirit and have a saving faith in the redemption of the cross. We acknowledge and rejoice in the fact that the Church transcends all national boundaries and is global in scope. Before his ascension Jesus commanded his disciples, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”(Matthew 28:19). This command is clear: the Gospel is to be preached to all men and women regardless of their nationality. But just because the Church has a global mission that does not mean that contemporary secular globalism is a friend of the Church.

Jesus told his accusers that his disciples would not take up arms to advance his kingdom because his kingdom is not of this world: “My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence”(John 18:36). Jesus has commanded that we advance his kingdom throughout the earth, but he has also commanded us to do so by preaching the Gospel, not by military force or political coercion.

The New Testament Church did not make any effort to join all Christians into one political unit or one state, nor did the early Church teach that becoming a Christian destroyed one’s national identity. Even the Apostle Paul, who spoke more strongly than anyone else about the irrelevance of Jewish customs under the new covenant, retained such a strong attachment to his fellow Jews that he could say, “For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh”(Romans 9:3).

Church history provides us with no precedent for the current globalist scheme of absorbing all nations into one political unit and destroying all national distinctions. Islam and Communism have pursued this path, but not the Church. Islam, Communism and today’s globalist ideology are all inversions of the Biblical Church. The Church is global in scope because it rules in the hearts of all the faithful from every tribe and tongue. The globalists seek to ape this kingdom of grace by setting up a secular kingdom founded on earthly power and compulsion.

    The church as defines as body of Christ or Bride (the perfection of Creation) has become a harlot.
    It has repudiated the New Testament and capitulated to the Old , which Christ Jesus has already condemned.

    This is defined as denial of themselves as the perfection and returning to the resonant voice of today’s Pharisaic lies. Jesus taught the least in Kingdom of Heaven was greater than the greatest of the Old Testament , John the Baptizer. Yet people do not want this identity , significance or attending responsibility.

    Globalism is a lie; a contemporary Tower of Babel. If Christ Church is catholic or universal it is not to destroy family (nation) nor to efface individual race or perfection of the race in Christ.

    No nation has been CHristian yet all have benefited from an imperfect hypocrisy . What can happen if only one nation was pure?! America is the last hope that others might emulate. But already through the alien liar, she has disowned herself for this world, rejoiced in its apostasy, practiced idolatry and ultimately bows deeply (16 standing ovations in congress before the Israeli King) , the Anti-Christ. Unforgivable!!!

    Before one begins a garden he must remove all the weeds and be vigilant that not one weed be tolerated. Before the church and state accomplishes this all other thought s are premature and idle.. The enemy is everywhere and has destroyed everything the Holy Spirit might embody. Yet the church names this impostor, God and repudiates willfully the consummate work of Christ Jesus.
    What can one do but weep?

    Clement,
    Your recount of Christ’s words in Mat 28 “…Go ye therefore, and teach all nations…” hammers your contention home. Today’s liberal churches read “Go ye therefore, and make ONE nation…” Zing!

      Indeed, modern Christianity has accepted a basically Marxist position, with the bourgeoisie being replaced by “racists.”
