Have a look at this post from His Peace Upon Us. Dustin, we couldn't have said it any better brother. Kind of makes you sick to your stomach to think that Western Christians resort to fear tactics and mistakenly read the "Kingdom of America" into the Bible so often. Jesus didn't have an unhelpful, defensive paranoia about those who didn't follow him, instead he laid down his life to prove his love to them. Shouldn't his followers follow suit?
