Salvation & the State

The modern state claims sovereignty, although our Constitution was written without ever using that word which the founders felt belonged to the Lord God of Hosts, but when the state claims sovereignty, it can tolerate no other savior.  Sovereignty is a total concept.  One who is lord must also be the savior or he is not a lord, and so because the modern state says emphatically, “We are sovereign,” the modern state therefore declares, “We are the saviors.  Bow down and worship us.”
