Revival

The revival of Christianity should come with a revival of patriotism.

Simple ways to show patriotism include 4th of July barbecues that create a happy atmosphere and spirit of camaraderie.

In the US, the revival of Christianity should accompany the revival of national gratitude for a flag and country that represent freedom. Having gratitude for the good one has in life is a key characteristic of Christian living. The unfair negativity that has been directed against a flag that represents freedom, home, and equality has added to the unhealthy atmosphere that has witnessed the large-scale disappearance of Christian influences from the public.


A healthy sense of patriotism dovetails with a healthy appreciation for other countries and cultures. On the other hand, showing disrespect for the US flag and scoffing at patriotism fails to better the country and isn't a good way to counter nationalism. It creates an unhappy atmosphere and discourages a healthy appreciation one's own country. A Christian should feel a healthy sense of patriotism for a country such as the US and non-Christians who share in this will also contribute to a socially happier and healthier public.


Simple ways to show patriotism include 4th of July barbecues that create a happy atmosphere and spirit of camaraderie. The many cultures America represents can find expression through unique takes on this celebration that include cuisine from their cultural heritage. The revival of Christianity and patriotism should be expressed and seen as a renewed respect for religious freedom in the public and a bringing together of different cultures in appreciation for the home they come together in.

Being around like minded people is always a great time. It allows you to be in the company of people who really understand who you are as a person. There’s always time for good company.
