Can Nations be “Christian”? An English Debate

24 Aug 2009 Can Nations be “Christian”? An English Debate

Is Canada a Christian nation? Was it ever? For one perspective on this debate (looking at England rather than Canada), read this new article in Comment Magazine (a publication of Cardus) by Jonathan Chaplin. Here is an excerpt:

“But what many Christian nation advocates seem to overlook is that this specific, covenantal character was only ever explicitly ordained by God for one people: biblical Israel. There is no biblical or other evidence that, upon the inauguration of the New Covenant, God mediates his redemptive activity in the world via any special relationship with a particular nation or political order any longer.” Read the whole article here.
