I confess, I find the idea of “if the nation would just allow itself to be united under Christ” an interesting (but highly flawed) notion. Considering the Church cannot get unite under Christ, why would we think a nation of even more diverse beliefs could be plausible? Besides, we see what happens when the Church has power…it wields it badly.
Plus, such sentiments smack of “Boy, if only Bob Dylan would get saved, then the whole world would have to believe!” And so Bob got saved… and things moved along as they did before.
