Jesus also said to give to Ceasar what belongs to Ceasar and to god what belongs to god. . . .
this one is self explanatory
2. jury duty---
as annoying as it may be,
this is a service that is expected from all citizens that reap the benefits of a community,
it is a way of giving back to ceasar
this is a right we have in the USA and using this right to better the community we live in would not be looked down on by god, believe it or not there are programs in the "world" that help those in need,
and by using this mean,
as a democracy we have a say to where our TAXES should go and where we would like our representatives to stand on certain issues,
this is a way of loving our neighbor
4. armed forces---
registering and partaking if duty calls, is expected of citizens when they reach the age of 18.
though i am a pacifist and do not condone war,
it is a requirement of the law,
the bible speaks of the hebrews going to war all the time.
war is war,
bloodshed is bloodshed
regardless any excuse you can formulate,
this is a touchy issue but it is a requirement none the less
and Jesus said to obey
5. respecting the flag of your nation---
respect seems to be an issue with you Stilladub,
it is not a rag,
it is a symbol of what the country you live in stands for ,
it is not worship to show respect,
and by calling it a rag it shows that you lack it,
not everyone is as fortunate to live in a nation that gives us freedoms like the ones we have here in the USA ,
that you seem to be taking for granted,
you can go door to door freely because of our constitution, dude.
men died to give us some inaliable rights.
freedom of religion and
freedom of speech are 2 of these,
these are some of the things that we learn in school,
when we get an education. . .
