KNEELING BEFORE A HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS GOD

Is being a good parent for only 60 seconds a day sufficient for claims of good parentship? Can claiming an hour a week in church sufficient for claims of good Christianship? Can simply paying attention to your boss or stockholders for a minute a day sufficient enough to claim good employee-ship? What about being mindful in our spending for a minute a day? Is this sufficient for claims of good stewardship?
Why do we allow ourselves to be duped into this false battle and lying, deceptive mindset that simply not standing during a pledge of allegiance sufficient merits of false accusations of "disrespect of our nation and military"?
Why is this mean and hateful heart and mindset typically and uniquely white republican and more sadly, "Evangelical"?
Is truth uniquely partisan and along racial and economic lines?
More importantly if we claim the Jesus Christ of the Bible as our Lord and Savior and America as a "Christian Nation" (meaning we claim Jesus Christ and God as He has revealed Himself to us through the Bible as our measure) what does it mean when God says He is no respecter of persons? (Acts 10:34-35)
Now, here is the measure of pride and sin: Kneeling has always been the symbol of utter submission. I would NEVER kneel. Only in sinful thinking would kneeling before or for something considered not submissive. Why? Because the devil  wants what he says to be taken as truth, when it's actually the utter and complete opposite. Who and what do we honor when we honor falsities and lies?
John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
