"If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
"If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death,
and those that are ready to be slain;
"If thou sayest, Behold we knew it not;
doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it ?
and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it ?
and shall not he render to every man according to his works ?"
Parable of the Good Samaritan
The Saviour said, "Which now of these three, thinkest thou,
was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves ?"
Luke 10:29-37 [ Answer: It was the SAMARITAN, not the religious priest or Levite ! ]
"THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF."
"If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God [ including EVANGELISM ] except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at the moment attacking [ i.e., in 20th/21st century America, CHILD-MURDER-BY-ABORTION ], I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ."
"Where the battle rages, there the loyalty of the soldier is proved and to be steady on all the battlefield besides is mere flight and disgrace if he flinches at that one point."

Biblical "Separation" for a Nation
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,..." 2 Corinthians 6:14-17a (KJB)
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE - IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. The Declaration of Independence is part of the organic law of the United States of America United States Code Annotated http://uscode.house.gov/search/criteria.shtml
The people of Iraq have far greater freedom to enshrine their national religion of Islam in the legal structure of their country than do Americans to honor Christianity and Biblical Law in the United States. Christianity was by far the predominant faith of the founding generations of America, from Jamestown in 1607 to the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and beyond, as the historical record clearly shows:
No King but King Jesus! (Yeshua Messiah)
Declarations and Evidences of Christian Faith in America’s Colonial Charters, State Constitutions, and other Historical Documents during over 375 Years of American History: 1606 to 1982
The Sixth President of the United States, John Quincy Adams (son of John Adams, the Second US President, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence), said: "The highest glory of the American Revolution was this; it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity." and "From the day of the Declaration... they (the American people) were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and by the laws of The Gospel, which they nearly all, acknowledge as the rules of their conduct." Tragically, today in 2008, American law has become exceedingly anti-Christian. Witness the government-protected murder of One Million pre-birth human beings each year (www.ldi.org).
The Constitution of the United States should be amended as first proposed by the National Reform Association in 1864, with a Christian Amendment:
Confession of the Saviour (Messiah) as the Ruler of Nations, including America, by amending the Preamble to the United States Constitution
In 1864, the National Reform Association advocated amending the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States to read, in substance:
"We, the people of the United States, humbly acknowledging Almighty God as the source of all authority and power in civil government, the Lord Jesus Christ as the Ruler among the nations, his revealed will as the supreme law of the land, in order to constitute a Christian government, and in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the inalienable rights and the blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to ourselves, our posterity, and all the people, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." http://candst.tripod.com/nra.htm
Explicitly Christian Politics: The Vision of the National Reform Association
"Since 1864 the National Reform Association has advocated an explicitly Christian approach to politics. In this book their vision of politics, based on the mediatorial reign of Jesus Christ over the nations, is explained for a new generation."
