What is our responsibility towards govrnment laws

We live in a country that values our freedoms and rights, perhaps too much, but that is another discussion. We are not a theocracy, even though we do put "in God we trust" on our money and certain government entities and claim that we were founded on Christian principles.

We are a government of the people, for the people, and by the people. At the same time we have a great number, most in fact, that have no relationship with God or holds to His standards.

What is our responsibility towards God in this area? Would the legislating of the moral standards of God tend to make a nation evil or one that showed it stood for God given standards.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
