Presbyterians, church and state

I find this to be a balanced reflection from the PC(USA) Web site on issues surrounding church, faith and patriotism. Click the link for the full article: 

“Strong allegiance to a person’s own country is a good and important virtue, but as Christian patriots we fulfill our proper responsibility in both roles when we are rooted in the knowledge that the Cross of Jesus Christ stands high above the flag of every nation, including our own. From that stance we can challenge every earthly authority to remember that they serve at the pleasure of a God who is just and merciful and requires the same of them. In this way we render our greatest service to both God and country.”
