Thank you for the words of wisdom. I have a feeling the Trump administration will not get us out of war.
we will be in war as long as people are not only making money but getting rich from war. its all money
we will always be at war
I think the message of liberty has a very religious background to it. So it's not really a matter of political opinions, it's a matter of prophecy. So ee have to look at the days and acknowledge that we are not physically, or perhaps even mentally free. If the church were more outspoken on prophecy, youd find God to be more realistic and prone to punishment. Needless to say, people today are less responsible for their own actions because they rely on government to take care of them from cradle to grave. Most people are hardly aware of today's prophecy, they're not going to know what hit them, and when that time comes, they'll be ridiculed and put to shame for not actually being faithful to God. The "law" is a spiritual matter. We could also say that Judgment, is a Godly matter. We have to reject satan, and accept that america and it's government are it's works. I object to this idea that authoritarianism is my government, God, is my government. And a lot of people mix the two together. This authoritarian government also falsely accuses and punishes people unfairly. That's Gods job to decide our innocence. We should believe more in God, not government.
So, let me get this straight. You're saying that we should have either a government based off of God and the bible or no government at all? If so, you sound like a heretic no different than those within Islam.
religion and government don't mix. you would have to have all government or all religion one or another. no mixing
Our government was formed on the basic idea that we're endowed by our creator with certain inalieanable rights, notwithstanding the push back of man-made ideologies to completely remove this idea. The intention of the separation of church and state was to allow Christian principles to have influence on governance, but to keep religious beliefs free from government influence. Without our rights emanating from our creator, and the value He places on human life, human life is devalued and it becomes a contest of who has the biggest stick. History is full of this playing out over and over. Without the value Judeo-Christian's place on human life, that value drops according to self-service.

This piece should be compulsory school reading world wide.
Re statement at 10:00, seems to go on a wrong trail, as Christians don't think they are entitled to vengeance. The Bible says vengeance (and judgment) belongs to God. There is a big difference between Old and New Testament rules. Punishing someone (i.e. an adulterer) by stoning is an Old Testament rule/law which isn't part of New Testament rules, no longer allowed.
