On the Record #15 - Roles of Church and State
Our government should never encroach, control, or dominate the authority and decision-making ability of the church. Likewise, the church should never encroach, control, or dominate the authority and decision-making ability of the government. The two organisms (one spiritual and the other worldly) are designed to be autonomous, yet complement one another, relating to our governance .
In 2022 the church and state have been placed at odds with one another contrary to our Framer's vision and contrary to the First Amendment in the United States Constitution.
The church’s role is to impact the soul component of men and women which, in turn, have great impact on our contribution to society and Christ’s kingdom. Again, our Founding Fathers understood this dichotomy.
The Separation that I believe in is purely biblical in nature. Civil law and civil authority (attorneys and the American Bar Association) have essentially stripped away the natural law of God in the public square in 2022 (God's common law).
In doing so we have diminished the moral authority of the Scriptures by allowing government and the ensuing bodies to outpace/replace that which was intended for the church.
God bless America!
