This below is a blog post by a Muslim. This is the overall impression that Muslims have of conservative patriotic political Christians, who are putting patriotism and politics above the gospel of Jesus Christ. There is nothing wrong with patriotism or just war principles or self-defense, as long as it comes secondary to the gospel and the Kingdom of God. What happened to “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” Matthew 6:33 ? and as C. S. Lewis said,”Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in; aim at earth and you will get neither.” C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity, page 118) The controversy around Dr. James R.

That might seem like a controversial statement, but recently there have been some events that qualify this argument. In responding to a right-wing Evangelical American, Dr. James White says as follows (emphasis mines):

Steve, but when did the gospel become something you only explain to people who look like you and have the same political views?
