unTapped Topic: I Pledge Allegiance?
As American citizens, we give our allegiance to the flag and to our country. Some people of faith, however, feel that giving allegiance to anything but God is a sin. There is some legitimate textual evidence behind this. The Torah forbids oath taking in Deut 23:23. In the Christian New Testament, Jesus speaks sternly about pledges and oaths (Matt. 5:33-37). What do you think? Can people give their allegiance to both God and country?
Join us for the conversation, 7pm this Thursday at Shorts Brewing, downtown Bellaire.
In order to live man must believe in that for which he lives.unTapped is a conversation about faith and spirituality. There are many people frustrated by being forced to think of faith in the same old patterns, and would prefer to explore spirituality in different ways.
