Baptist Pastor: Christianity in America Too Wedded to Patriotism

A distinguished Pennsylvanian African-American Baptist pastor believes that American Christianity needs to break from American patriotism.
The Rev. J. Wendell Mapson, Jr., senior pastor of Monumental Baptist Church of Philadelphia, gave a lecture earlier this week sponsored by The Baptist Pastors and Ministers Conference of Philadelphia and Vicinity (BMPC) on the state of the church following the Barack Obama administration.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Mapson explained that a key theme of his lecture was that “Christianity in America has been wedded to American patriotism and the biblical understanding of the faith has been compromised.”
