An article collecting Scripture passages relating to the separation of church and state. He’s looking for feedback and you can directly join the conversation here at the TheoGeeks group on Google+.
The topic of the separation of church and state is a pretty interesting one. I would think it would’ve been more popular back when states actually controlled religion or were mainly composed of one particular religion, instead of today’s “everything but nothing” stance. What I mean by that is, the United States tends to promote its “we accept all religions” value, while at the same time saying no religion has a place in the sphere of government.
But is that true? Are the state and religion meant to be completely separate? What does the Bible say about the issue, if anything at all? What about logic and reason – which stance seems more appropriate in our modern day?
