    • But the Harlot and Babylon are two different entities. Think about it. The kings hate the Harlot in Rev. 17. The Kings cry and lament Babylons death in Rev. 18. Why ? What can be the only difference ? One is False Religion, and gets judged by God via the Kings because he Anti-Christ demand ALL WORSHIP HIM. The other is the Geo-political system/the World being destroyed by Gods plagues.    Check this out, I wrote a piece on the Harlot in Rev. 17 and another piece on Babylon of Rev. 18 the other day. While I was making a point about how Rev. 18 is not really John seeing the City Rome, it is just the Angel telling John what he had seen, that Great City that rules over men (Rome I said...BUT, later I changed my belief as I went through the vision line by line. In Brief:   The First two verses is the Angel telling John things upcoming, then in like verse 3-5 John sees a Harlot Riding on a Beast with 7 Heads and 10 horns, drunk with the blood of Saints and Martyrs, with those 4 NAMES printed on her Head. Guess what, that is the ONLY VISION John sees, everything else is the Angel explaining the Visions MYSTERIES or telling John what HE SAW. So the Angel explains the MYSTERY of the Woman and Beast so it is no longer a Mystery, if we listen, The Seven Mountains are Seven Rulers. The Seven Kings have Fallen etc. etc.Then John explains the waters on which she sits is world wide.. He Then describes how the Kings will HATE HER, and destroy and burn the Harlot. BUT CATCH THIS. The Angel tells John that woman YOU SAW.......What did John see ? ONE VISION, that's it, and that woman had what on her forehead? Babylon, so that woman that you saw, is that Great City that ruleth the Kings is Babylon, that was the Vision, not Rome, everyone assumed Rome when they thought the Seven Mountains were Hills of Rome, but that's bunk, we know it is Seven Rulers sh sits on, just like the Seven Headed Beast. So the City has to be metaphoric, because God said Babylon will never be anymore.    So Babylon is the City being spoken of in verse 17:18. It is where Nimrod built the Tower of Babel and where Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar tried to rule without God. All Kings since that try to rule without God at he helm is of the same ilk. 
    • That's hardly the point. The people are the nation, and the Founding Fathers held to Christian beliefs, as did Americans in general.  The arrival of the Mayflower was a Christian event. What should be crystal clear is that the documents which established the United States were all in harmony with Christian beliefs, and Christianity was not being blatantly opposed and mocked (as it is today).
    • the IS sufficient as the sole rule of faith.   Paul says the following: All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2Ti 3:16-17) Paul tells us that the Scripture are profitable for the purpose of making us complete, fully equipped for our service to the Lord.  If there were any other authority capable or profitable to that same end, that would have been the ideal time to mention it. And this is not just talking about the OT Scriptures, as Paul also referred to the Gospel of Luke as Scripture (I Tim. 5:18 cf. Luke 10:7) and Peter also referred to Paul's teachings as Scripture, while Paul was still alive (II Pet.  3:15-16).  And what about Jesus?  What was Jesus stance on the issue?   Jesus appealed to Scriptures when He said, "It is written,"  over 90 times.  When Jesus confronted Satan in the Wilderness, He appealed to the Word of God each time He was tempted (Matt. 4:4, 7, 10). In Matt. 15, in one of many of Jesus' conflicts with the religious leaders of His day, He confronted and rebuked them for placing their traditions in higher authority than the Scriptures (15: 3,6). The Bible makes no appeal to any higher authority than itself.  None of the writers point to a body of tradition as being equal in or possessing more authority than the Scriptures.  And they never appeal to any "tradition" as an infallible  rule of the Christian faith.
    • Nowhere do I see Adam's declaration of the government or the nation being Cristian. Himself, indeed, the state, no.
    • Thomas Jefferson and James Madison became staunch advocates for religious liberty after defending the Baptists in Virginia against the civil government seeking to impose civil penalties against them for heresy. Those unalienable rights, in particular religious liberty, are to protected by the civil government. The moment any civil government encroaches upon man's conscience with regards his God, regardless of who or what that (G)god is, the government oversteps its bounds. Roger Williams, centuries ahead of his time, was one of the greatest heroes of American history. His example and teachings ought to be imprinted permanently upon every persons mind in America. Sadly, that is not the case, and the US is heading down a road today from which there will be no return, and to which will result utter ruin.
