For many, it seems to make sense that one can be a “Christian” and at the same time show allegiance towards a country, a denomination, even a pastor, but by mere definition and from observing God’s character in the Bible, having allegiance for Christ plus anything else on the side is simply irreconcilable in the long run.
According to the Cambridge dictionary the meaning of allegiance is as follows:
loyalty and support for a ruler, country, group, or belief
And now loyalty is a pretty strong word and means this:
firm and not changing in your friendship with or support for a person or an organization, or in your belief in your principles
That leaves us at the crossroads of our previous alliances and what to do with it, because sooner or later, we will can only stand “firm and not changing” on one side of the spectrum. There will always be a conflict of interest, because God’s way and thoughts are always higher than that of man. What then happens to your allegiances with other things and people?
