Christians, Are You Blessed & Thankful for Being American?

I’m so blessed and thankful to God for our freedom to worship Him in this land. Of course I wish all Americans knew Christ as their personal Lord & Savior. However, there is no other country in this whole world who loves God more than America. This is true when we see American missions(past to present, America is still #1 in the world). Also, there is no other country in the world which beats America with Christian resources- we have more Christians musics/artists, books, radios, tv media, churches than any other country in the world. America used to be spiritually closer to God in the past, but I feel that nowadays, America is spiritually dying with enfasis on the secular- we need spiritual awakening, prayer & God’s word. So as Christians, what is our duty? I think we can start by praying like Jesus did(before Judas sold him)- earnestly with all our hearts, minds, and strength- for our own sake and the sake of our future generations. Do you agree?
Read the title, if you’re not American nor Christian, why are you answering my question? There are plenty of other questions you can answer,ok?

  1. Gee. From your boldfaced Q you assume all Christians are Americans. I don’t think the Coptics and Eastern Orthodox and Greek Orthodox etc. would agree with your assumption.
    One of America’s greatest patriots, Thomas Paine, wrote:
    “I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by
    the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the
    Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
    All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian
    or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to
    terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
    I do not mean by this declaration to condemn those who believe
    otherwise; they have the same right to their belief as I have to mine.
    But it is necessary to the happiness of man, that he be mentally
    faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in
    disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not
    believe.
    “Every national church or religion has established itself by
    pretending some special mission from God, communicated to certain
    individuals. The Jews have their Moses; the Christians their Jesus
    Christ, their apostles and saints; and the Turks their Mahomet, as
    if the way to God was not open to every man alike.
    “*It is [ ] necessary to [condemn] the declaration which says
    that God visits the sins of the fathers upon the children; it is
    contrary to every principle of moral justice.
    “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon, than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness, that has served to corrupt and
    brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I
    detest everything that is cruel.
    “…the Christian Mythologists, calling
    themselves the Christian Church, have erected their fable, which,
    for absurdity and extravagance, is not exceeded by anything that is to
    be found in the mythology of the ancients.
    “Putting aside everything that might excite laughter by its
    absurdity, or detestation by its profaneness, and confining
    ourselves merely to an examination of the parts, it is impossible to
    conceive a story more derogatory to the Almighty, more inconsistent
    with his wisdom, more contradictory to his power, than this story is.”
    “The Age of Reason”

  2. I’m not a Christian, but I thought I’d give my two cents.
    Yes, I’m proud to be a US citizen, but not for the same reasons as you 🙂
    But what’s important is that we love this land regardless!

  3. im pagan atheist and scottish
    not only americans are on here and not only christians either
    and no i dont agree
    —-Additional
    to your edit I’veGoth
    because its a public q/a site thats why
    and
    because ive seen many many americans and christians alike, who seem to believe this place only has people from america and christians
    so, i answer to let them know there are more people out there
    and i thought you were one of them who assumed this
    as did almost eveyrone else who answered
    if you are not, cool you already know this,
    if you are, cool now you know this
    no big deal
    but this place is for education and information purposes
    and thats what i was trying to give about this
    plus
    your q and wording does suggest, if you are not american but are christian, you have nothing to be thankful for
    if you are not christian but are american you have nothing to be thankful for
    that, only american christians have things to be thankful for
    or have the need or wish or right to share their thanks for things they are thankful for
    basically
    it rules out people from both america and christiainty
    you are ruling our 2 of your own denominations
    which makes little sence and is quite segregating

  4. your question brings to mind the christian martyrs of centuries past, and those being martyred today in indonesia and africa and australia AS WE SPEAK.
    balance your gratitude with thoughts of the plight of others, we tend to wayside this

  5. canadian, am i thankful? pretty much i’m glad that i live in a country that isn’t in terrible warfar or poverty but i wish i could go out and help those countrys

  6. We have been greatly blessed by God and most people take it for granted that we have so much freedom. I am afraid that one day we will not have all the liberty that we are accustomed to. A few years back, I had a dream in which I saw the American Flag waving in the air. It was taken down and another flag, which I don’t recognize even today, was put up. This may happen quicker than we think.
    Revelation 12:11
    And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

  7. pray is a great start but we have to learn to love like Jesus to. to him there is no difference in anyone. he loves us all the same and wants everyone to be saved. if we all showed Christ love this would be a completely different world.

  8. Some of you make me laugh to think that Americans are the only nation on this earth. I am Canadian, and our country has just as much wealth as your country, we just don’t have the population that you have. You have 300 million, we have 30 million, but our country WAS mainly Christian until the govt. started letting in all the multi-cultured people in. I have many american friends so I know how ignorant they are of us north of the border, but that’s okay, its not news to us. 🙂 You have the same problem there on a smaller scale, all the multi-culturalism. Believe it or not, we are headed for a one world system and that also takes in america. It’s all part of the grand scheme of things. It has to be that way for the end times. And before you ‘judge’ Judas, he was forechosen to betray Christ. If you are one of the Christians that just stands by and lets being ‘gay is okay’ then you are going against God. Look what God did to Sodom and Gomorrah, I think if you look at the first city name, you will get the idea why God destroyed those 2 cities. Do you think that has anything to do with the 300+ fires in california? I don’t know, it’s just a question. But being gay is unclean, unnatural and perverted, and people should not be just accepting such things, but then again, its all signs of the end times, and is supposed to be there I guess, so there is really nothing you can do but wait for the end times to come and hope that you are one of the Christians who has ‘eyes to see and ears to hear’
    May God bless you and your nation 🙂

  9. Nope. I’m a kiwi, born and raised in New Zealand. I’d rather live here than in the US.
    Lol you sound like one of those Americans who are unaware of the world beyond your borders.

  10. I feel I am very Blessed to be an American . To live where I am free to choose the God I serve.To be where others gave their life so I could have this freedom.Thank God for the Soldiers- men and women who put their lives on the line.I am blessed because I don’t live in a country who see me as trash to hide away somewhere .Like the men are better than us women.I totally agree with you. I wouldn’t want to live no where else.
    Alot of people run us Americans down but if we are so bad – why are people dying to get here! They would love to be us!

  11. Your wishes are both vain and patronizing. In no way should all Americans know of your Christ, your Christ and its religion is a part of the reason why our country suffers as so.
    Beyond the idea of separation of church and state, you should separate your ignorant illogical fantasy of theological but constitutional secular state from real life. You should wish more for a better education system that knows of the lies of Creationism than this waste.
