Thanks, Joe, for pointing out John Leland. I had never heard of him. He is expressing many of my thoughts in a much better way. I HIGHLY encourage the reading of his section titled "The Government of Christ: Christocracy." It is at that link that Joe gave as well.
Wow, I am just amazed that I have never read or heard of this man, and he expresses my thoughts so clearly. B8, please read and give your thoughts.
