I just finished a great book, Christianity, War and America’s Salvation Story by Michael E. Lewis. The book can be purchased at Sermon on the Mount Publishing in print or PDF format.
The greater part of Christendom lives in denial of what Jesus came to accomplish during His time here and that denial is lived out in the life of the institutional Church. Michael sets forth his case, presents his argument with undeniable documented facts, and closes with words directly from the mouth of the guilty along with the testimony of the pilgrim Church of the first three hundred years. Any Christian who can read Christianity, War and America’s Salvation Story, and come away still believing the bloody myth of Manifest Destiny and Patriotism, that has been spoon-fed to the American public for centuries, does so at the risk of their own redemption. If you are still hooked on the false narrative of Christian America you owe it to yourself, family, friends, and for the sake of truth, to read this book.
“What of Jesus and His apparent defeat at the cross? In truth, no greater victory could ever be won or been more desperately needed by the creation, and yet it was secured by death on a cross; no armies, no outward demonstrations of worldly power, no pomp or glorious triumph. Jesus looked nothing like a king in victory as He died on the cross. It looked like foolishness to man, but it was God’s wisdom and power on display, with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in triumph.”
“What looks like defeat and weakness to the world is the very picture of strength, the very power of God over the principalities and powers.”
Michael E. Lewis pg. 537
