Americanity Part 1a

A new, honest civil religion that doesn’t hide behind the true Gospel. Instead God is your buddy, personal shopper, and wants to see you prosper. You aren’t a sinner but just an underachiever. God wants you to stand on piles of gold, sing the hymn of the neo-American dream, and know that you have saved yourself. Americanity will help Christians to realize as Michael Horton says that we have turned a reliance on Christ into, ‘a vague, sentimental attachment to someone who is more like an invisible friend than the incarnate, dead, raised, ascended and reigning Savior of the ungodly.’
