Jesus was not America's Founding Father

If you see American flags in your church service today, be wary. For today is a day all too many American churches mistakenly conflate Jesus with a Founding Father, and attribute America's prosperity to its cultural christianity. When the global correlation between Christian populations and national prosperity is weak at best. America is rich because of World War II, uniquely amazing agricultural conditions, and unfortunately, slavery. So let's wave our flags this weekend, but not toward Jesus. His is a different freedom.
