Is Christian Nationalism a Threat to America? Panel Debate

~ ‘Is Christian Nationalism a threat to America?’ focus of Centennial Institute debate Oct. 27 at Colorado Christian University ~
The Centennial Institute, Colorado Christian University’s (CCU) public policy think tank, will host a spirited discussion on Christianity, nationalism, theocracy and religion in American society. “Is Christian Nationalism a Threat to America” will be held on Thursday, October 27 from 7:00–8:30 p.m. MDT/9:00–10:30 p.m. EDT. The conversation will seek to answer questions like: What is Christian Nationalism? Is Christian Nationalism a threat to America and its founding principles? Are Christian Nationalists calling for a theocracy? How does religion intersect with the American public square today? 

In his article Every Christian Is a Christian Nationalist, E. Wils writes, ”Christian nationalism can be summarized by this: God instituted governments to promote good and punish evil and it is a duty of the Christian to inform the magistrate of what God calls good and evil. This is because Romans 13 details that the government is established by God and is His minister. The word ‘minister’ used here is the same word used for both deacon and servant— ‘diakonos;’ the Christian then must inform the rulers on how they are to honor God with laws that promote good and punish evil.”
