    The Bible describes “secular nationalism” early on, it simply does not use that modern-day term. Nascent secular nationalism can be seen in the post-deluge period. Certainly when man became militaristic and began his empire-building, secular nationalism can be seen as full blown. Look at the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Medes and Persians.

    Of course it does. The book of Daniel is full of it, and the battle godly people back then had resisting its attempts to knock their faith in God out (2:36-47 & ch. 3). Just because the modern phrase "secular nationalism" isn't used does not mean it cannot be spotted all over the place in the Bible. Revelation also warns against it but using pictorial language / imagery (e.g. 11:7-14).

    These are modern concepts.  BOth secularism and nationalism.

    Generally, the religion of the ruler, was the religion of the peasents.

    Source(s): This arose with the FRench enlightenment. And the English civil war. And early Dutch republic

    Cause secularism is more of a modern thing, pretty sure the first secular government is the product of the French and American revolutions
