The Church Needs To Speak

A biblical view of the institutions of the Church and the State rejects a State-run Church or a Church-run State. Both are clear violations for which God punished people. However, we are to recognize that the Church is to be obedient to Christ because He is her Savior and the State is to be obedient to Christ because He is its King (Psalm 2; Psalm 110:1; Daniel 7:13-14; Matthew 28:18-20).

It is however the duty of the Church to speak prophetically to the State when the State attempts to run the Church and society by arrogantly assuming it has the authority to declare what the ultimate ethical standards of God ought to be when they are in clear violation of His revealed Word.
