America has been scandalized recently by a rash of unusual and unexpected events: A Charlottesville, Virginia terror incident and displays of hate that led to one dead protester and several injured. There was also a high number of public property damage incidents where various locations in the United States were defaced by people angry about the intention of certain US Monuments having a relationship (or even no relationship) to the Civil War.
Following these was a genuine outside threat to American sovereignty by a new terror strategy: the using of radicalized Islamist children, claiming to be American, who have been featured in ISIS propaganda videos.

All of these challenges to America and the American Way of Life leads to an important question in our time:
What is required to be a good citizen?
What does it mean to be an American citizen? Meant for people of all our 25+ nations who currently listen to Podcast Seminary, this is a message targeted to Americans– but a discussion that all citizen Christians should ask. The question being posed in this podcast episode is simple: “Is there any legitimate expectation of citizenship that we should give and receive from our fellow countrymen?” There was a time not long ago that it was an expectation for all American citizens to show indications of loyalty to country. Now that is an open question. This issue is what we will discuss in this podcast, related to the reasonable and scriptural expectations of being a good citizen.
