Moore’s words didn’t leave any room for interpretation, as she let her Christian followers know exactly where she stands when it comes to the political philosophy.
“Christian nationalism isn’t the way ahead for Jesus followers. Christian faithfulness is,” the renowned Bible teacher explained. “It’s fidelity to Christ—not fidelity to notions of American Christianity or to any political party—that will bring light into this present darkness. The church is bride to no one but Christ.”
The “Jesus, the One and Only” author, who has over 1 million followers on Twitter, has received over 14,000 likes and almost 700 comments—many of which agreed with Moore. Nevertheless, there were a few who did not.
“Grow up, Beth,” one commenter retorted, while another said, “Then why don’t you take a stand for biblical and moral issues. Your silence says a lot. Would you have stood with pharaoh, the Caesar’s, the Pharisee’s? Blessed God’s people did not.”
However, someone else pointed out that Moore’s comments were less controversial than most would seem to think, saying, “This tweet is going to attract a ton of controversy when it really shouldn’t. She’s saying Jesus over flag. If you struggle with that…welp.”
One commenter reminded Christians about the golden Trump statue at CPAC in 2021.
“I really thought when they wheeled out an actual golden statue (golden calf), the spell would finally be broken. I was heartbroken when that didn’t happen. I’m sick at how our faith has been twisted,” she said.
Some genuinely asked Moore to define the “Christian nationalism,” because they feel as though it means different things to different people.
