Big problem is the left controls the language so no matter what we call ourselves they will define it how they wish to make us look bad and it will be THEIR definition spread far and wide. Some believe Jesus was a socialist so the socialists would say THEY are Jesus loving Americans. No matter the term we WILL be made to look bad when the left is through defining it. Most true Christians DON'T want a theocracy or a the left is fond of saying to shove their religion down peoples throats but want to see the godliness found in scriptures used as a guide for society. Funny the accuse us of trying to shove our religion down their throats yet it is they who are shoving. We have to much in common with Jews for mistrust to take place we must help them understand a Christian nation would NOT be a theocracy.

Maybe the biggest problem with the term "Christian Nationalist" is the the term seems to have mostly originated from the left. The left uses the word nationalism in a way that subtly infers fascism tainted by white supremacy. I can't say I see Christians pushing for a white theocracy; most simply desire to retain what freedoms they have left. What bothers me, however, is Christians who use the "Christian nationalists" term tag to condemn other Christians. While it is true that some Christians have gone too far in putting their hope and trust in Trump; the use of the label by Christians upon other Christians reinforces the stereo-type the left is pushing. Only God knows the depths of the heart of each individual. We best be very careful in judging one another. Using the term Christian nationalist will prove to be detrimental to Christians who do love their nation and fight hard for it, but who also fully realize God alone sits on the throne. Jerimiah was considered a traitor by many, on the other hand, there were others who beforehand led Israel to greatness, who were called to be nationalist, yet under God. There is a season for all things under the sun; wisdom is to know things in their season and in their place, and follow in obedience whatever season it is.
