Na. I think you've somewhat misunderstood my remark. To place allegiance to this nation founded upon the belief that God, the Creator, is the Giver of freedom is something that first, has to belong in the heart. It's true, the knowledge of God is the beginning of wisdom.
First, our duty is to render to God that which is His - our allegiance, hope, and trust. As a consequence of rendering to God, there comes the obligation to publicly be a faithful servant by resisting evil according to God's precepts and statutes.
I wasn't disagreeing with your perspective - just trying to relate the task begins from within.

"I wasn't disagreeing with your perspective - just trying to relate the task begins from within."
We agree. Good point. God's Word in the Bible insists that all Christians become lamps of Christ's love to the rest of the world, that we shine the Light of His Love into the dark corners of this world and the dark corners of men's hearts... through witnessing evangelism, and through the examples we set in our own lives.
The recent "Any Mention Of God Is Hate Speech" trend, where Christ in the manger is no longer allowed at Christmas Nativity displays, and all other attempts of Satan and his putrefacted minions to stifle the spreading of the Good News of Jesus Christ, must not be put up with by Christians any longer.
We are told to be on the front lines of this war, not waiting in the shadows for somebody else to carry our water.
