I want to know why many mainstream preachers stated that we should support an American Christian heritage when Jesus said that His Kingdom is Not of This World (John 18:36). We should follow Him and seek His Righteousness (Matt 6:33).

What do you think constitutes a " Christian" nation?

I think one argument for an American Christian Heritage maybe because the first settlers in the New world were seeking religious freedom among other things.

The Spiritual Apostolical view of a Christian Nation is any Nation in the earth were Chriatians have the ear of Heaven and should be one together in heart of Christ and small or very large in numbers, should bless the Nation and its leaders in prayer,,,, and Jesus will hold that Nation up and Creative blessings can come to that Nation from Heaven....... People who just reject their own nation and condemn their leaders will get what they pray for , but those blessing will not come from heaven but the adversary..... People who say that we are not a Christian nation, comes from the civil libertarianism ideas and not from the Lord God..... Pray for your nations leaders pray for your Nation .... Jesus said when he overturned the money changer in the temple ; ; This will be a house of Prayer for all Nations ;; Forgive the leaders Bless your enemies in the blessing of the Lord God. and Jesus will heal the land.......
