Hi David, Thanks for your comments, but I would like to add a few things to perhaps clear up some misunderstandings for you and for others who may be reading. I am going to be brief, so feel free to ask questions. This quote comes from Luke 20, and is attributed to the Tribute Tax paid to a ruler to pay for the security and protection of the people. This does not in any way refer to the principle of church and state, which is also misunderstood, and I will explain briefly why. This comment by Jesus above is to not excuse a man from paying taxes where taxes are do and this comment wasn't expected by the scribes and chief priests who asked in order to trick him. As for religion and politics, let it be known that this country was...

for all men to repent and turn from what dark path we were on and to come to Christ, as a free gift of His love for us. As far as religious liberties, we are all free to pursue a religion that includes God or rejects Him and all of us will stand before God and His perfect judgement and give an account for "EVERYTHING" we have done, Jew, Muslim, Christian, and Atheist alike. Every knee will bow. This country was founded for a people of faith and we stand under God, never above or without him.

The pilgrims came and established rules for means of self government so they could practice...

...founded on the principles found in the scriptures of God's Word, known as today as the canon of the Holy Bible. If you are doubtful of this or argumentative, please check out this link: You can start from time 4:00. It is from these principles that has made the USA the unique place as it is, but as we destroyed these principles over time by other agendas, namely, the desire to leave God, and the only saving faith found through Jesus Christ, we are now deciding the law of man is more valuable than God's law. There is such a thing as "Morality" because God declared it and not us. It is very good as well, because the principle's surround the love of God for humankind and His desire...

When I hear Christians saying we ought not get involved in politics but just “preach the Gospel,” I show them this satellite picture of the Korean peninsula. Here we see a homogenous population of mostly Koreans separated by a well-fortified border. South Korea is full of freedom, food and productivity—it’s one of the most Christianized countries in the world. North Korea is a concentration camp. They have no freedom, no food, and very little Christianity.

What’s the primary reason for the stark difference between these two countries? Politics. The South politically allows freedom, while the North does not.
