Should Christians try to make their society into a Christian nation?

This week, we take up an exceptionally complicated question that has all sorts of other questions rolled into it. The part that we take up, though, is how we as Christians should insist that our government should behave. To get at this, we go back to the reign of the Chilean dictator Pinochet. From here, we can get a clearer view of how Christians might be able to hold their government accountable, while avoiding the pitfalls of a society being Christian in name only.
