          Martin Luther wasn’t an evangelical, his denomination is specifically considered a mainline denomination in the US,

    In Acts 1, Jesus’ disciples were like “hey so you’re resurrected now, so is it time for the revolution to overthrow Rome now?”

    And Jesus said basically, “no, that’s not up to you. Your job is to just keep doing what I’ve been doing—feeding the poor, uplifting the oppressed, kicking over the tables of those who try to make money off of worship—but for your city, and your country, and for those people you hate, and for everyone in the world.”

    Wow have evangelicals gotten it screwed up.

    In my country, one could say: 'Political Christianity’¹ isn’t compatible with the constitution.

    In the USA, I’m not so sure.

    ¹ Take on them saying ‘Political Islam’, which of course isn’t that democratic either.

    Christianity was made popular thanks to the Roman Empire. You really think Rome didn’t pour its own values into it?

    “Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.”
