I was not sure where to put this thread. Since I am a Baptist I placed in the General Baptist Discussion. The thread on the pledge of allegiance made me begin thinking about the topic of national flags in churches. Frankly I do not believe the national flag should be placed in a church be it in America, England, the Czech Republic ... in any country. Why? 1. The national flag stands for Caesar and not God. Thus, IMHO, national flags should not be placed anywhere in a Baptist Church. They may exist, but I have never seen a national flag in a European Baptist church. 2. Too many Christians confuse their patriotism for their country with Christianity. One lesson of history is that very bad things happen when country and Christ become mixed, that is where the church and state become too close with each other or when one has too much influence over the other. What is your opinion? Why do you believe thus?
