    King David was a Jew and Torah was his constitution , the laws and traditions were his culture. In his time a Jew did not keep Shabbat becuase it was a "Religious act" he did so because that is what the Jewish Nation did, it was part of what it meant to be a Jew. Religious is a modern invention that does not accurately describe Jewish acts. If a American pays takes is he a "religious American" or is he simple following American laws? Judaism is not a religion, we are a nation who was in exile for 2,000 years, we are returning to our land and our true selves. Once Jews understand this it wont be so hard anymore to be Jewish in the fullest sense of the word. Being Jewish means living in the Jewish State, Serving in its Army, paying its taxes, Celebrating Shabbat and eating Kosher in accordance with our Torah constitution! All these acts from Shabbat to Army are what our Torah constitution demand from us. It makes the complete Jews.
