Independence Day, the 4th of July: American flags, BBQs, fireworks and lots of patriotic displays. You’ll see the American flag on bathing suits, beach towels, cooking aprons, paper plates and napkins, tattoos, you name it.
But nothing is greater than when churches remind us that Jesus did not exist before America, and that Jesus is himself an American who loves America. And he loves ‘Merica the most.
I’ll bet you didn’t know that Jesus carried a copy of the Declaration of Independence to the Liberty Bell (don’t worry, it was just a copy not the original). Jesus wept but he could not repair the crack.
This photoshop job goes double ‘Merica on us: Jesus wrapped in an American flag inside another American flag.
