What scriptures have a bearing on the attitude of true Christians toward involvement in ceremonies commemorating events in a nation's political history?

John 18:36: "Jesus answered [the Roman governor]: `My kingdom is no part of this world.'"

John 15:19: "If you [Jesus' followers] were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because you are no part of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, on this account the world hates you."

1 John 5:19: "The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." (Compare John 14:30; Revelation 13:1, 2; Daniel 2:44.)
