"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves." - Matthew 7:15
Researchers define Christian nationalism as a political ideology that merges American and Christian identities. Through its spread of misinformation, political violence, and theocratic attacks on equal rights -- all in Jesus's name -- right-wing Christian nationalism distorts Scripture and poses a grave threat to democracy and the church alike.
In both church and the public square, leaders of the Christian nationalist movement come to us in sheep's clothing by claiming to speak for Jesus, but ultimately prove themselves to be ravenous wolves who manipulate the language of religion and care only for themselves, devouring the rights of non-Christians, women, migrant families, voters, and the LGBTQ community.
Their goal is to destroy the separation of church and state and seize power for conservative Christians at all costs, no matter who else gets hurt or how many elections they have to overturn along the way.
The majority of Christians across the country are sick of seeing false prophets like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Franklin Graham, Doug Mastriano, J.D. Vance, and Michael Flynn warp the Gospel for their cultural agenda of hatred, power, and division. It's time for us to speak out against the heresy of Christian nationalism and reclaim our faith's prophetic voice for the true Gospel values of love, truth, equality, and social justice.
