" Congress shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion." This is the first, of the First Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Our Founders knew exactly what they were doing: this was to prevent a federal-religion, which they were coming out from under in Britain. Religion was a part of the kingdom!
The root for Religion - religio = to return to bondage. Immanuel came to destroy Death, which is the Devil, and It's #1 tool, Religion. Immanuel-Christ-Jesus is seeking those that " worship in Spirit, and in Truth." The First 5 of the Ten Commandments deals with Idolatry/Religion.
Everything about Satan's agenda, from the Garden, to Rev.13 has been about Religion: deception has been It's key. In modern times from the I.R.S. through Global-Warming, it has been about Idolatry/Religion. Wicked laws, and wicked Executive Orders have caused iniquity on the land.
Dan.3:5 When the music played, the people were to fall down and worship the golden image. A violation of this law meant death for Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Dan.6:5-11 the law was to prohibit praying to any God but the king, for thirty days: Daniel received the death penalty.
Dan.2 describes a great image[system]. This system is top-heavy, and built upon a fragile support of Clay[Christians] and Iron[Religion] that are intermingled via deception and force. It doesn't last.
Religion is Anti-Christ, and Anti-People: why waste our time fooling with It?
