Follow-up letter from Wolfgang Simson

On November 7, the day after Barack Obama was re-elected to a second term as President of the United States, I posted a letter received from Wolfgang and Mercy Simson entitling my post Are we confusing the Kingdom of God with the United States of America? This turned out to be one of my most read posts of the past five years!

Due to the large volume of response to their original letter, a couple of days later, Wolfgang and Mercy sent out a Follow-up to the letter "Our Dear America" to address many of the questions and concerns generated by their original letter. If you were challenged by their original letter, I highly recommend you take a few minutes to reflect upon this more detailed explanation.

Yes, there are ways we confuse the KOG with the USA. Often we have a "memory verse" view of Scripture rather than a contextual view. And in the end we fail to see that as Christians, we are called to be the light of the world, not the sword of the LORD. http://christianpacifismblog.wordpress.com/scripture-and-pacifism/

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I found your blog link to be interesting. It is hard for us to see that "our way of life" in the Western developed world is not necessarily that of the Kingdom of God.
