Patriot Day

It's Patriot Day, which is a time to pause and reflect on our country, the blessings of freedom and the price of freedom.

Unfortunately, it seems that anytime patriotism and a love for our country comes up, there also comes a confusion about how it relates to Jesus and the Bible.  A few personal clarifiers:

I love both America and Jesus, but not in the same way.  And I only worship one of them.

I always want America to be free and I cannot understate how much I appreciate those that have sacrificed for that freedom.

But the freedom that Jesus brings is superior in every way.  Let's not get political freedom and real freedom confused.

Happy Patriot Day.
