Should we pledge?

I have respect for my country but I was thinking.What exactly is the purpose of rining to the flag.In a sense aren’t we worshiping it.If we are wouldn’t god be angry about that?I think that we should love all nations equally and if we pladge to one over another that shows you clearly prefer one over another.I am willing to change my mind.I would just like others to share their opinions.

  1. I personally do not believe in patriotism for the countries we live in (although, I judge no one who does. I just have a strong respect for the Scriptures and I have to follow them). We have brothers and sisters in Christ all over the world and God is no respecter of persons. Our kingdom is not of this world, it’s a heavenly kingdom, so I fully believe our allegiance should be to Christ and His Kingdom!! The way I see it is, if I’m pledging allegiance to my country (America), then I’m pledging allegiance to an earthly kingdom which does not know God, and am separating myself from my brothers and sisters who live in another country.

    Those are my beliefs on patriotism! Hopefully that answers some of your questions! Would love to hear others’ thoughts as well! 🙂
