There has been a lot of criticism against Christian Nationalism coming from the left. And quite frankly, if what’s happening at these overtly charismatic rallies like the one in this video involving Bethel pastor, Sean Feucht, then count me out.
However, this is not what Christian Nationalism actually is. It may be some form of religious fanaticism, but it certainly isn’t Christian. At its most basic definition, this is a religious cult proclaiming blasphemies against the Holy Spirit and while taking credit for what is being perceived as political victories from these people.
Christian Nationalism, essentially, is just simply Christians coordinating together to bring about political results that are in the best interest of Christianity. And, of course, Christians believe that what’s in the best interest of Christianity is in the best interest of everyone—Christian morality is, after all, what this nation’s laws were built upon, at least to a certain extent.
But these guys, like Feucht and the rest of these charismatic religious fanatics, take a whole new approach to nationalism and invoke the name of God into blasphemous displays of irreverence and then attribute these displays of the Holy Spirit. To them, God is a mere genie-in-a-bottle of whom they can invoke to seek the outcome they desire. In this example. Feucht takes credit for overturning Roe v. Wade by marching and singing at the Supreme Court for 40 days and then declares that if they invoke God by striking imaginary arrows into the ground repeatedly, we, too, can have “victory” on election day.
