Welcome Message from the Editor, Taylor Marshall
Christian and American is a site dedicated to our Lord Jesus Christ unto the greater glory of God. We seek to present news and commentary from a Christian point-of-view while employing a biblical worldview. The editor and contributors seek to transform human culture, particularly the culture of the United States of America, into one that respects human life, human freedom, and human dignity under the banner of Christ.
It is our goal to observe the biblical mandate: “Trust not in princes” (Psalm 146:3) but in the guiding hand of Divine Providence. Our hope is not in movements, political parties, or candidates, but in our Lord Jesus Christ This is a hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us (Rom 5:5).
