Identity in Christ: A Response to “Choose – American Loyalty or Loyalty to God (4th of July Edition)”

After my recent post "Choose - American Loyalty or Loyalty to God (4th of July Edition), (CLICK HERE FOR LINK), a friend of mine asked me three questions that I found to be thought-provoking and important to address: -Have you renounced your citizenship to the US? -If one is reading between the lines, he may say that you believe it is sinful to pay taxes. Is that accurate? -Once Israel became a nation with a King, under Saul, they were no longer a theocracy. Should the Israelite army have refused to fight until the king renounced his throne and insisted on a return to theocracy? If you have not already read my previous post, you may want to do so first as it will give you a foundation for this posting (CLICK HERE). I hope that you will find my response to my friend's questions to be of value as you pursue the Kingdom of God.
