A Christian Nation, Finally?
If the key principles that define America were derived from the Bible, how come it took 1500+ years of so-called Christian nations for a nation like America to happen? The Roman Empire was pretty Christian from the 4th century on. There was the Byzantine Empire, the Holy Roman Empire, the various highly religious medieval nations like Spain and Poland, etc. All those were supposedly Christian nations, and yet all of those were wildly different from the United States of America. If the principles that define America are really in the Bible, and they're so obviously derived from the Bible and not, say, the Enlightenment philosophers, the Magna Carta, etc., then you'd think at least one of the many Christian nations over the 1500+ year history of Christian nations might have gotten there first.
