American Imperialism! Exciting.



We are back from the summer hiatus! This week we discuss American Imperialism- American foreign policy- and the justification (or not) of war, support, and global aide.

The majority of the discussion stemmed from the results of this survey. Feel free to take the survey and see how you compare with us! Also, here is a link to the google doc with the full breakdown of research.

Based on Micah 6:8:
“With what shall I come before the Lord,
and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”
8 He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?


  • Aversion to “politics” stops us from discussing controversial issues in the church and with Christians and puts up a protective security cloak between our government and us.
  • Being an American Christian, typically means supporting aggressive U.S. foreign policies for some inexplicable reason.
  • Most both Democrats and Republican candidates accept the “special” role of the United States in world foreign policy typically without question.
  • The assumption that the safety and security of U.S citizens is more important than the security of others is a dangerous one. Are Americans worth more to God then other people?
  • U.S. Christians are mostly ignorant of the havoc that our Government and our now Global Corporations wreak on the rest of the world. In order to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God, we must take an interest outside of our own borders and do whatever little thing we can to stop the suffering to which we contribute.
