What I meant to say is that we ought to be guided by the Lord. I am not a Theocrat in the traditional sense. Only Israel in the OT was to be a true "Theocracy" ruled directly by a Divinely inspired law. However, we ought to make our laws based on the good and just revelation of God found in Scripture. I know even most of my fellow "conservatives" do not believe that, but the Pilgrims and Puritans and Massachussetts did, and while they did get everything right, they had the right heart.
