Wow! So many natural disasters this month it’s starting to get downright biblical!
Then there is the weakening of the nation-state as we have known it as the world slouches toward
Bethlehem tribalism. Even right here in America with the rise of our identity politics.
Our concept of the nation-state did not exist in biblical times. What the linked scripture defines as “nation” translates as ethnic groups.
The modern-day nation-state framework only began to evolve in the 1500’s, culminating in 1945 with the creation of the United Nations.
Spooky action at a distance!
