Separation of Church and State Violates Common Sense and God’s Will – It’s an Abomination by Fr. Joseph Gleason for Russia-Insider
Russia is doing the right thing, striving for cooperation between the Church and the government. Meanwhile, America languishes under its pretensions of the “separation between Church and state”.
Before a President signs any law into effect, he should check the Scriptures first, to make sure it is a Godly law. Before Congress passes any bill, they should check the Bible, to see whether Jesus approves of that bill. Before the Supreme Court rules on any case, they should consult the Scriptures first, rather than the Constitution . . .
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
Which thoughts are we supposed to submit to Christ? According to the Holy Scriptures, we are commanded to submit “every thought” to Him. That includes our thoughts about politics and government. In other words, the “separation of Church and State”, as it is taught today, is both unbiblical and unorthodox.
What areas of your life does the State control? They control your money (through taxes), your homes (through building codes), your children (through public schools), and virtually every other area of your life (through numerous laws, some of which you know about, and many of which you don’t).
So, if we are going to kick the Bible out of politics, that means we have to kick the Bible out of almost every area of life. And that is just the way the State wants it. “Believe whatever you like, but don’t actually start DOING what the Bible says, or you will get in trouble.”
