    organization dedicated to the importance of encouraging people to not only
    memorize the Scriptures, but live them out, being doers of the word bearing
    much fruit for the benefit of all people.  One's faith should be used to help
    people, not hurt them.  All people should be treated equally regardless of
    their faith or not.  Scot believes in the separation of church and state so the
    power of the state cannot be used to force people to exercise their faith (or
    not) and so the corruption of politics does not corrupt institutions of faith.  
    Politicians should govern.  Preachers should preach.
