Christian patriotism, loyalty to the law and government of the Most High, is the loftiest aspiration that can ever come to any soul.
p. 3, Para. 2, [PATRIOT].The separation of religion and the State is one of the most important questions that any people can ever be called upon to consider in connection with Christian patriotism; because the union of religion and the State has marked thegreatest apostasies from God, and has caused more miserythan any other thing in all history. p. 3, Para. 3,[PATRIOT].The complete separation of religion and the State isChristian. Unswerving loyalty to this principle isChristian patriotism. This is not a mere sentiment or sideissue of Christianity; it is one of the fundamental principles and chief characteristics of Christianity. p.3, Para. 4, [PATRIOT].The Bible, not merely the New Testament, but the wholeBook, is the Book of Christianity. The New Testament is nota revelation new and distinct from the Old; it is theculmination of the revelation begun in the Old Testament.
