Christian Singer Danny Gokey On Why People ‘Should Love’ The USA

Popular Christian music singer and former American Idol contestant Danny Gokey loves America and believes people should love the United States of America. 

No place on Earth is perfect. The United States of America is a flawed place founded by flawed individuals. Currently, the USA is filled with imperfect people. God’s word says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But even through its errors and mistakes, the United States of America has always been a symbol of freedom, bravery and truth. 

For those reasons and others, Danny Gokey believes people should love the United States of America. He says this even though other voices, he claims, are saying otherwise. 

“I have a passion for my country,” Danny said. “I love America, and it is OK to love your country. As a matter of fact, you probably should love your country. Otherwise, the country won’t be very strong if the people don’t love it.”

He states that he’s trying to counter other voices in society that are sending an opposite message, encouraging hate and dislike of the United States of America.

“But I just think there’s so many voices in our culture trying to tell us how to think about our country,” he said. “And I think that that’s demoralizing what is happening to the people of our country.”

Danny, who has put out songs celebrating the United States, says he felt God call him to that project.

“I just decided, I said, ‘I want to write songs that celebrate us,” he said. “Because there’s so many great things that our country has done. There’s, I mean, we have, there’s never been a country like us and probably will never be a country like us after us.”

He mentioned in the interview what he was trying to accomplish with his new music.

“And so, I just wanted to point people to the hope of our country, to the bravery of our country, to the goodness of the land, and I started writing.”

Psalm 33:12 “Blessed in the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.”
