Lately I have been interacting with people here and there about the relationship between Christianity and the State...and amazingly most opposition to State-driven Christianity comes from Conservatives. When I tell people that I refuse to say "the pledge" they get quite animated and even upset. Very frustrating... Here it is a blog entry from Jonathan Grubbs on Statism and Christianity, using Anabaptists as an example: "The Anabaptists assailed this imbalance, as did they did all forms of state coercion. If they were opposed to "christening," it was only because they were opposed to the "Christendom" this practice represented. For this insistence upon a "Believers' Church," separate from the state, Manz was bound and sent to the bottom of the Limmat. Oh yes, there were cries of "Freedom of religion" -- as long as you supported the right religion. And thus the Christian sacralism of Constantine became the Christian sacralism of Luther and later of Calvin."
Revelation was probably written during the middle part of John the Apostle's life. Some hold to the 90's and it is the last book written in the New Testament. However with multiple evidences we are giving we tend to believe otherwise.

“What is the meaning of the expression ‘shortly come to pass,’ found in Revelation 1:1?”
The final book of the New Testament begins in this fashion. “The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show unto his servants, even the things which must shortly come to pass?” (1:1a).
The phrase, “must shortly come to pass,” translates the Greek dei genesthai en tachei. Of special interest is the term tachei. This word, together with several cognate forms, expresses various shades of meaning.
Rockin' the Wall is the compelling story of rock and roll's part in bringing down the Berlin Wall and smashing the Iron Curtain.
There has been some discussion by preterists lately on the post AD 70 status of the kingdom of God. Some say that the end of the age came at AD 70 and that Jesus has delivered the kingdom to his father (1 Cor. 15:23-28). While I agree with this (cf. Matt. 10:21-22; 24:1-3, 6, 13-14; 1 Cor. 10:11; Heb. 9:26; 1 Peter 4:7; 1 John 2:18; Rev.
