Church and State

Preached at: Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
Date: July 16, 1986
One issue which most perplexes and troubles our national life today, publicly and privately, is the issue of church and state. Few people have missed reading about some, of the battles waged over this issue. A great deal of ink has flowed over that particular question. Some prefer that separation to be absolute: no relationship whatsoever between the government and the church, religion, or God. People with any sympathetic understanding of the desires and ideals of the founding fathers know they did not have that in mind. Moreover, to forbid the establishment of a religion has never meant to sever any relationship between government and God.
