    Within its pages, readers will find a special section dedicated to the pursuit of equal rights which includes figures such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Barack Obama as one of the many introspective historic articles featured in the title.

    I am at a total loss for words.

    And, given what I would say, that's probably a good thing.

    If that's patriotism, I don't want it. :eek:

    Pure skubalon.

    Should we as Christians give due honor to our perspective nations? Yes. Should we worship the state? Absolutely not!

    The Scriptures are primarily about Christ, not the United States of America. As a matter of fact I challenge anyone to even find a Scripture pertaining particularly to the USA.

    I heard someone say once, The founders of our nation were patriots who loved their country - not nationalists who loved their government.

    How about Psalm 9.17 "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."

    Good one.

    But it pertains to all nations not particularly to the USA as some American Churchianity folks would seem to think the whole Bible belongs to only the US. I mean, after all we're "God's Country" right? :rolleyes:

    I've grown so weary of study bibles over the years - this is just one example of the insanity they've been associated with for a long time.

    I use our Reformation Study Bibles as a reference, because I do respect modern reformed scholars' commentary, but as a personal bible, all I want is an old fashioned black leather Bible with HOLY BIBLE on the front with nothing inside but the Word of God and a concordance and maybe maps in it. I can always look up Matthew Henry, John Gill or Charles Hodge if I want to understand a passage.

    I'm not against commentary - just the whole study bible craze.

    I heard once that there were never "study" bibles before C.I. Scofield. :think:

    Actually the Bible's all about Great Britain and her glorious Empire.:p
    We were once Top Nation, you know:rolleyes:

    I want my British Patriot's Bible:cool:

    Let's not bother with a Kingdom (of God/Heaven) Bible.

    Christ's Glorious Kingdom isn't in the process of swallowing up all the nations and their self-centred pretensions:rolleyes:

    What about the Geneva Bible of 1560(+)? Don't contributions by Bullinger, Bale, John Calvin, John Foxe, John Knox, Thomas Sampson, and William Whittingham et. al. count as making it a "study Bible" predating Scofield?

    Nah! Don't you listen to the news? Canuks don't believe in God or the Bible. They are all socialists and they have taken God oat of daily living. I suspect that they think that belief in God has exceeded its expiry date like some old back bacon. Maybe they feel that theism is about as necessary as a tuque or bunny hug on the one warm week of the summer. Beauty eh? :lol:

    They should come out with a Lone Star State Bible. That would sell.

    I am up here in Canada (Toronto), and can say that for the most part you are correct. Christianity, of the evangelical type is a relatively small group. Church going, while higher than in Western Europe, is less than half of what it is in the US. There are many nominal Roman Catholics, and increasing numbers of Muslims, Buddhists, etc. In general the tone of society is secularism.

    Maybe everyone on this list can add revival in Canada to their prayer list.
