Ultimately, I’m a globalist. Star Trek, United Nations etc.
But if I can’t get that, I’ll do civic patriotism, as I believe that most of the IDEALS of America are good for any part of the world. So for that I’m a civic patriotic.
See my focus? Planet.
A border is just a floor standing on its end.
when I think “nationalism”, I think of a stupid board game: RISK. I never played Risk. Looked stupid. Had a friend who wanted to play it all the time.
World’s got limited resources of supply but humanity is clever and can figure stuff out.
Prioritizing dirt makes sense in a war position situation, fertility of ground but not ownership.
For public safety? Communicate.
I’m an individualist and a globalist. Not a team player.
Guns make shitty voiceboxes.
Animalistic shows of power are primitive and silly.
War and territory is for video games and that’s where it belongs.
Nationalism is completely foreign to my brain.
Oh, I’m a Christian. I just don’t brag about it. I say “agnostic” because I don’t like assumptions made about me and agnostic is easier to defend and is close enough.
My beliefs have to show through my actions otherwise I’m just doing a sales pitch.
I’m also glad to be an American but – same thing. Not a nationalist. I’m not dong a sales pitch nor attacking in a fight. I hold its values close and if I don’t show what being an American is through my actions, what good is it? It’s just empty words.
Christianity is far more than nice.Also, love is greater than the law. Render to Caesar is simply : pay your taxes.
As far as “what kind of christian” am I, that’s why I don’t say I’m christian. agnostiic is simpler as basic humanism covers most of what kind of christian I am and humanism is christianity without the head mentioned.
Using 1-7 is out of context. It is a build up to 8-13.
We rehashed it. You focused on law and I finished the verses. Love. Miss that, and it misses the point.
I’m saying love rides over all of it.
Yeah, sure you pay your taxes, do what civic leaders say cause submission is generally good for the soul and building humility but it’s all for the purpose of love, by love, through love.
