Cultural Manifestations

"Cultural manifestations are not salvation." Doug Phillips.

I have been asked to expound on the above quote that I posted in an earlier post on my website.

In the earlier days of America there were such things as the blue code laws, which made it against the law to do business on Sunday. In English parishes there were laws making people to go to church or to be faithful to their wife. These law are, for the most part, good laws, but they are not salvation. In Victorian England it was fashionable to have pieces of Egyptian pottery about, but that did not make the English Egyptian, so, in Pagan America it is fashionable to have pieces of Christianity lying about, but that does not make us Christian.

Praying for your food at the beginning of Thanksgiving dinner, going to church on Christmas, and not watching the worst films that come out of the socialist agenda of Hollywood does not make one a Christian. It makes one a classical American with hot dogs, baseball games and cowboys.

Through His Strength We Will Conquer,
Andrew C. Abbott
