Imagine you live in a huge mansion. One day you discover that there’s a wing of the building you didn’t know was there before. You explore and find a large family that’s been living there a long time. They’ve got nice stuff over there, some of it better than yours.
So, you go over there, kill them, enslave the survivors, and take their stuff.
Is that what a Christian would do? Because that’s essentially what the first American settlers did to the Native Americans, and what we continue to do in Africa, the Middle East, South America, etc.
If being "Christian" means being like Christ, then I have a very hard time believing that America - or any other nation on this Earth - has ever been like Christ.
