First I want to say that I am amazed at all the understanding that I gained after reading "No Tithe For the Christian". Since the 'Separation of Church and State' is constantly attacked and misrepresented, I am very curious to know how Robin came to conclude the portion of the 1st amendment "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, to be explained as "That meant that governing authorities could not extract a single penny from any citizen for the support of any church! Put another way, the local church could no longer tax anyone. The money flow that had existed for centuries was now cut off!" This is page 22 of 39. I would like to know the respective articles to Robin's conclusion of explaining what the first portion if the 1st amendment was actually about. In my non-educated constitutional understanding (i.e. average Jane), I would initially interpret the first part of the 1st amendment to be saying that the government would not enforce a law to recognize, endorse or force a specific religion for the nation (such as what was done in Europe). How did Robin get money extraction out of the first part of the 1st amendment? I am wanting to advocate for the "No Tithe for the Christian", but with all the 'separation of church and state' flinging, I need to have a better understanding of what those things mean. Asking Robin how he came to conclude what he did and understanding what the separation of church and state really means and how it ties together would really benefit me in multiple ways! I really hope that Robin or his equal to this topic would contact me! I want to know more! Thank you so much for all your time and efforts...it does not go unnoticed or unappreciated!

Thanks for writing the article on love. It definitely helped to clarify that agapao and phileo don't really mean what they are so often portrayed to mean. But what would you say about 1 John 4:7, which finishes with, "and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God." The word for love here is agapao. this would seem to say that if you love with agapao love, then you are born of GOD as a true follower of HIM. But you mentioned some verses in which people who were not born of GOD loved with agapao love. How would you clarify this?

Just finished your "Love and the Bible" very interesting, does any of your writings spell out what you believe the
lost are required to do to be born again?

Thank you so much for your willingness to share your insite! Do you have anything about what the church really is? Do we have to go to church? Is it what God wants or can we fellowship in our homes with our families or other believers?
