    That goes for the State and Church. Slavery is born from the indoctrination of socialism. Ever so soft a plea of internal peace, bound with the chains of doubt. The worst of teaching, the lack of separation between doctrines, one of chains from the law of works, the other of Grace and Mercy, Liberty and Freedom. From all walks of life there are those who love Liberty. Two things can be done with the Truth, win souls or start wars. It is not in the power of man to save," But he who wins souls is wise" KJB
