In other words, once we acknowledge the nation's capacity and obligation to worship God, questions about individual freedom of religion -- or, individual freedoms or civil rights generally -- must be integrated with the clear answers that Scripture gives about our various corporate potentialities and responsibilities in church, family and nation to worship and obey God.
Any state ideology that denies this potentiality of the nation to worship is obviously false. Any state system that prohibits national worship is oppressive. Any state system that inquires only into the rights of individuals to individual action and ignores their right to participate in corporate action ignores fundamental individual liberties. It, therefore, oppresses both the nation and the individual. Any state system that inquires only into the rights of individuals and ignores the capacities, duties and rights of nations is deliberately turning its back on the system of right taught in Scripture.
Ps 66:7 He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations -- let not the rebellious rise up against him. 8 Praise our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard.
Jer 10:25 Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the peoples who do not call on your name.
