BELOW IS MY ANSWER TO HIS E-MAIL...
A few thoughts on your e-mail. The separation of church and state caught my eye and from the way that I
understand it, it was in reference to the church not controlling the state like the Roman Catholic church did back in time
before the reformation and they are still controlling the "state" in many countries. Since this country was founded on
Christianity and we HAD all of our laws based on the word of God then it would stand to reason that if we let them have
their "rights" here then since we are talking about the law of God then we should let the murderers have their way,
the adulterers, the liars, cheaters, thieves, etc. A country cannot stand if the law of God is abolished. He
wrote it in our hearts, we know it is wrong and so do they but they harden to the truth and become

I do agree that they cannot keep the law of God inwardly but they can outwardly, if you know what I mean.
Outward appearances such as not committing sexual sins with your body but they will be doing them in your mind like
watching filthy movies, lusting, etc. They can't keep the law of God inwardly without a new nature but to reject the law
of God completely, no person would survive. Anarchy would be rampant...
When Christians cease being the light in this dark world then its time is just about up.

HIS REPLY TO MY ANSWER BELOW...
"What a fabulous answer! I loved it. I knew it was something like that, but I
could not put my finger on it. I framed the question from a world-wise

I wanted to be able to answer them.
