    They'd have to start happily paying taxes instead of trying to avoid them as Jesus did say, render unto Caesar (government) what is Caesar's (money had a pic of Caesar on it, like our countries' currencies have our past leaders on them). icon_wink.gif

    PS applies to both Canada and the US

    Sure they do, like in Canada. Volunteers help sporadically and as best they can in between their lives and careers (gotta eat n live), and taxes guarantee consistency and security in assistance. Taxes also help fund a variety of charities, who get government grants. icon_wink.gif

    If all of the volunteers and resources that went to other countries stayed here we wouldn't even need anything else, but everyone assumes no one here needs any help because we are the "land of plenty".

    That's not the issue. The question is what laws would the country have if it were truly a Christian nation?

    People wouldn't need to have laws because everyone would be helping each other voluntarily and making sure others are cared for -- that's what Christianity is supposed to be about.

    The question is pathetic.

    No one in a Christian nation would require laws? srsly?

    Here: "Christianity, in one form or another, is the state religion of the following 16 nations: Argentina (Roman Catholic Church)[8], Bolivia (Roman Catholic Church and Christianity)[9], Costa Rica (Roman Catholic Church)[10], Denmark (Danish National Church)[11], El Salvador (Roman Catholic Church)[12], England (Church of England)[13], Greece (Church of Greece), Iceland (Church of Iceland)[14], Liechtenstein (Roman Catholic Church)[15], Malta (Roman Catholic Church)[16], Monaco (Roman Catholic Church)[17], Norway (Church of Norway)[18], Vatican City (Roman Catholic Church)[19], Switzerland (Roman Catholic Church, Swiss Reformed Church and Christian Catholic Church of Switzerland) and Georgia (Georgian Orthodox Church).

    (courtesy of Wiki, for convenience sake)


    These countries have plenty of laws.

    Well, we would outlaw ALL the abominations before the Lord and not cherry-pick them.

    And we'd invade Canada and make them Christian, too.

    It would be the law that any time you passed a beggar who asked for alms, you would have to give him your coat (cloak)


    keep adding to the list of new "Christian" laws.

    Jesus said nothing about being happy about paying taxes. But there would be no tax loopholes at all.

    I dont recall any verse where Jesus said to convert others. (citation?)

    If someone assaulted you, the law would require you let them assault you again and inflict equal damage on the other side.

    It would be against the law to talk business in church.

    Its just the conquest of Canaan, modern day and in North America. The fact that there are peoPle already living there is immaterial, just like the first time.

    Jesus didn't talk about that though. That was Old Testament.

    The idea is to create a code based upon what Jesus is supposed to have taught specifically. (to be able to paint a picture of what kind of laws would be in place if the country were the "Christian" nation Teabaggers want.

    Well, if you showed them where Canada is, they would want it. Put it on the list.

    We would all be communists now spying on each other, even if we're family, to see who's more Christian:

    "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me."(Matthew 10:34-37 and Luke 12:51-53)
