Do you believe in separation of church and state?
In this episode we discuss the separation of church and state! Can you be a believer and still trust in politics?Biblical References: *Deuteronomy 1:9-18 *Romans 13:1-6, “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.”*Matthew 28:18, Jesus says, “’All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me."*Proverbs 14:31, Exodus 23:6-9, and Isaiah 10:1-3 all talk about dealing honestly and justly and not in a selfish, evil way with the people being governed.*Daniel 2:21 tells us that God removes kings and sets up kings. But in the end, the government cannot save us.*“If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all,” (Romans 12:18).Articles Referenced: https://www.christianbiblereference.org/govern.htm https://teachinghistory.org/history-content/ask-a-historian/24441 https://www.pastortheologians.com/articles/2020/3/27/ykq5sn7omkhifkt2bbswrvlsrnw89u?gclid=Cj0KCQjwuO6WBhDLARIsAIdeyDI1ZGtmYsxAqe92BxZtGxvfjd2kJon8Y6qOLH6EJTFTMrfhMulaB-0aAsWJEALw_wcB http://www.gotquestions.org/Christian-politics.html https://gracetruth.blog/ethics/why-christians-should-be-involved-in-politics/ https://www.pewresearch.org/religion/religious-landscape-study/party-affliation•Follow us on instagram @ aandoshow
