Ep: 18 Church and State
Things that go well together and things that are best left distinct: that's what we're talking about this week. We look to connections between Luther's distinction between two kingdoms and the relationship between church and state in the American experiment. We reset the operating assumptions of our "kingdom of the left" focus. We discuss prayer in schools, the "wall of separation," James Madison's use of Luther, and Jesus words "render unto Caesar."
By the way, do you see anything wrong with this picture of flags? Find out why a sweet, elderly Baptist woman did. We also discuss Colorado Christian University, the problems withDavid Barton's scholarship, keeping theonomy on a leash, and the problems with state churches in Europe.
