In the private sector, as much as its citizens want. (This includes the private lives of its government officials, but not their public lives/voting/etc.)

That's separation of church and state. And it's important.

Otherwise, we'd become the Christian version of Taliban Afghanistan.

And that's just not right.

Cynthia, There are nations whose population is predominately "Christian" but there is no Christian nation! The bible and Christianity know no political boundaries.

What role should they play? A personal role. Personal Bible study and living the principals it teaches in our personal lives.
This country was founded on Religious FREEDOM. It was founded by people seeking to escape persecution from a Christian religious/political power.
Anytime you mix religion and political power, you get persecution.

There are no prophecies specifically related to America in the bible. There is one that refers to the eagle but that is a stretch.
We must be aware for such a mighty biblical force we are not in Revelations....we may not be here. Or we may be powerless. We are selling our souls by the marriage taught in schools.....liberal agenda.....million babies a year murdered in mothers womb with little complaint.......we have all but honest...its true

** This country was established on Christian standards and beliefs.**

Jody, please tell me what particular Christian beliefs were used to found the USA.

Belief in the Trinity?

Belief in the Incarnation of the Son?

Belief in the Resurrection? Hypostatic Union?

Please be specific. Otherwise, you're merely quoting catch phrases.

James Madison said this about the legal establishment of religion:

"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity, in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution."

He was one of the "founding fathers" by the way.

The found fathers were running away from the legal establishment of religion.

This country was established on Christian standards and beliefs. They have played a major role in our system from the highest ranks down to the lowest in our justice system. In these last few generations there has been a slow degeneration of these values and beliefs. The government has violated the constitution and actually broken laws which it will be necessary to cover up.The thread which established us is being broken.

II Corinthians 10:3 says this, For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4.. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.

Excellent question Cynthia.....WITH ALL MY HEART....I beleive the HOLY BIBLE, given to US SPECIFICALLY to be used as OUR MORAL COMPASS AND GOVERNMENT FOR LIVING. OUR MAKER GOD, who knit us in our mothers womb and knows us better than we know ourselves gives every instruction how to live a good and peaceful life, and directions to prosper us. Mere man has pretty much done a good job of screwing up just about everything imaginable left to its own CORRUPT WISDOM, and manipulations.....PART ONE.
