No, I am dead serious.
Last week, at the GOP debate, Newt Gingrich recommended that anyone of Muslim faith, who would apply to be a part of his administration would have to take a loyalty test or oath. Newt is right, there is a group of people that the American government should be afraid of being disloyal, but I hardly doubt those of the Islamic religion should be targetted.
No, it should be the Christians, because Christians, when they accept Christ, pledge loyalty to the Kingdom of God, a community entirely different from the United States, with a different set of values and a different God that we worship.
It is just assumed blindly that Christians should be patriotic and good citizens.
But the apostle Paul says our citizenship is in heaven (Philippians 3:20).
It’s Christians who need to be given loyalty oaths and tests, not Muslims.
