Can Christians Pledge Allegiance to Both Christ and Country?

Episode 480 Show Notes 

From the Show

See, I think we ought to be grateful for the freedoms we have, most of all for the freedom to worship without being persecuted, but our ultimate allegiance—and here’s what I don’t ever want you to ever lose sight of—as believers, our ultimate allegiance is to God and to his kingdom… Our ultimate hope isn’t in the United States of America but in the cross of Jesus Christ.

—Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

1. In the Lord’s prayer, I understand how the Father would deliver us from evil, but why would God lead us into temptation? What is meant by “Our Father…lead us not into temptation”?

2. What are your views on the Lord’s Day, and what are biblical ways to honor God with my Sunday?

3. As Christians, should we pledge allegiance to a flag when our allegiance is to Christ and His Kingdom?

4. Shouldn’t people be looking for Jesus Christ, the church of God the Holy Spirit, and not a man-made church building?
