    Quick. Take charge in the author of the Bible, The Holy Spirit. The author lives in you, if you want to be sin-free; then you are in The Holy Spirit. Soooo, The Church and FaithCommunity is authoritative. Theocratic civil government will be lame, lame, lame, without jettisoning 'sola scriptura'. Tell me how you leave all Catholic Rites behind, and Orthodox Rites behind and plow ahead? You see, "Our interpretation is based on a living relationship with The Holy Spirit, and not definitively scripture interpreting scripture or itself standing alone or even in contextual entirety. For instance Dt 28, the curses of Moses Law are removed in The New Covenant by Jesus Christ's perfect sacrifice on the wood of the tree and becoming, for that New Covenant establishment, A Curse for Us. Oh the wondrous Cross." The argument is that Americans have become rich through Natural Law. I argue, how more fully and variably rich will we become through Christian theocratic law, based on social justice, business ethics, and nothing of shared poverty but living-level salary theory and implementation.
