Hi Jose, I agree with you that the state of our nation’s capitol – and our entire society – has become increasingly hard find people of different beliefs getting along. During the section of this course when Robert discussed the wielding of power, I liked how he broke down the history of power being abused not only by those who despise Christians, but Christians themselves. As the Church waited anxiously for Christ to come again after he ascended to heaven, people began to stray from God’s teachings, which led to the Roman church using coercive power to try and keep their communities on the path which God wants us to follow. It was convicting when the similarities drew to the state of America today. Our country was uniquely founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and when the majority of Americans lived lives walking with Christ, things ran for the most part smoothly. But when we see the majority straying away from the teachings of the bible, those who know that Jesus is the Way begin to panic and want to grab control wherever they can. But the Church cannot change the course of the world by implementing laws and forcing nonbelievers to stop living they way they do. Evangelism and changing people’s hearts and mind are the only way we can reunited our country as one nation, under God.
