Love and Defend America: Reflections from Rebeccah Heinrich
Providence Magazine: A Journal of Christianity & American Foreign Policy ^ | July 26, 2017 | Rebeccah Heinrichs

"Christianity has a long legacy of great minds who toiled to understand the Holy Scriptures and Christian orthodoxy and applied them in ways to navigate matters of politics and international relations. However, today there is great confusion, partly due to the lack of proper catechesis, which works as a bulwark against bad doctrine and progressivism in general."

"Now this independent, spirited president and his administration have come at a time when these concepts are being rediscovered and debated. What is America? How do we preserve her culturally? How do we rediscover, appreciate, and protect her?"

"No doubt you’ve also seen, as I have, exhortations that we should detach ourselves from the tumultuous political times, and that perhaps celebrating our country looks too much like “idolatry,” because, as you know, the Christian’s citizenship is ultimately in heaven.

Yes, as Christians our citizenship is ultimately in heaven, but we have much to do in the time God gives each of us and for as long as Christ tarries. American Christians, with more say in what their country does than perhaps any other Christian has ever had, have the greatest responsibility to steward this earthly citizenship well for the great glory of God."

...We have much to be thankful for as American Christians

...Our history is one we can be proud of.

"There is good work being done to reassert America as an independent, sovereign nation. And there is so much more to do."

But this moment in our nation’s history needs more thinkers to guide us through this tumultuous time."
