Should a state adopt an official religion

All of the major religions I know of, say you are judged based on the life you live as an individual, it has nothing to do with government or politics.

When states have government supported religion, politicians can (and most often do) use the religion to control the population by making the public believe their God wants them to support their political agenda. For that reason, politics and religion should always be separate and the population should always be free to choose any religion or any political ideology the want. If you will be judged based on the life you live as an individual, then what you believe is your choice, not the state.
