Before I get to my answer to this question, let me begin by stating why I think we are seeing many Christians ask this question right now. It’s pretty simple: fear. There is a perception among many Christians that we (collectively) just lost. Since we lost we now wonder, what’s next? I can understand this to a certain degree. None of us like to be overwhelmed by fear. So I’ve got great news for you today: you didn’t lose!
You didn’t lose because we never had what we think we had. Put more bluntly, I don’t think America has ever been a “Christian nation,” nor is that even possible. So while the good news is that we didn’t lose I guess the bad news is that we didn’t win (even if you voted for Obama). That’s because putting the primary object of your hope into a government is a very unChristian thing to do.
