“Patriotism or national pride is the ideology of love and devotion to a homeland, and a sense of alliance with other citizens who share the same values.”
Polls show an all time low of 47% of patriotism in the USA. In fact, we have gotten to a time where flags are desecrated or burned; the national anthem is not honored by standing at attention and putting your hand over your heart; the military personnel are not respected for the sacrifice they give, and respect is not shown for government officials. Romans 13 states that government officials (“higher powers”) are the ministers of God and to be respected. Christians are to be good citizens – and we are to be PATRIOTIC!.
