Quote of the Day

"And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king.
And he said, This shall be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.
And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your orchards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
And he will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.
Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said Nay; but we will have a king over us.
That we also may be like other nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles." -- I Samuel 8, 10-20

So Yahweh is an Enemy of the State?

Alan, about thirty years ago, I became aware of how this scripture applies to today's America. Sadly, the Christian 'church' has put the State in place of King Jesus. I encourage all 501c3 churches who preach "you must be born again", to ...give up their government, tax exempt status, and stop rendering to
Caesar, that which belongs to God.

As long as churches accept tax exemptions, government controls them, and they have polluted, and diluted the presence of the Holy Spirit. Churches do not need to incorporate.
