of righteous empire, manifest destiny and Christian ethics

William Rankin's insight on his 90s book Cracking the Monolith, gives such prophetic insight about the present situation with American foreign policy and the false doctrine of righteous empire.

“But there is a need for caution against our own assumptions and willfulness in thinking we know the precise will of God. The best we can hope for is an indication based upon Scripture study, scrutiny of the Christian heritage, and the insights of Christian community.”

- WilliamW.Rankin, Cracking the Monolith p.141
