Democracy,Communism, Liberalism etc. Refer to the different political systems that nations adopt to rule their communities. Of these I believe that the Democratic political stance is the best, as it allows freedom of thought and expressions. This is way that Elohim the God worshiped by the tribes of Israel and Christians, He gave all people the right to accept His rule or reject His rule.Whatever rule a person excepts, God or mans'. determines their eternal destiny. "choose you this day whom you shall serve;" Joshua: chapter 24 verse 15 [Please look this up in the Bible and read it in its context]. A person who is forced to worship God against their will, by any type of force and threat of imprisonment, is not worshiping God, but by practicing forced worshiping he does so to save his life, not to honour God!
