That's about as American as you can get.
It's on our money. It's in the very fabric of our constitution and in our psyche.
At one time, everyone knew what this phrase meant. It meant that we believe and trust in the God of the Bible - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
No longer can this said of America.
The reality is, in today's world, this phrase means something like, "In God, Allah, Krishna, Buddha, Kabbalah, goddess, spirit, etc. we trust."
The question for the church and Christians is not why it is this way. The church has to come to terms with the reality that this is the way our pluralistic world is.
The question for the church and Christians is how will we live out our faith and how will we will share our faith in a pluralistic world without coming across as arrogant or naive?
That's the question.
