Church and State

Church and state is one of the many sticking pints in our culture.  Today a number of evangelical pastors have aligned themselves with the current administration.  To me they have sold their souls to the government and as religious people they should not do that.  Jesus said, when he was on trial before his death, ‘my kingdom is not of this world.’  In another instance when Jesus was questioned about whether or not taxes should be paid to Caesar, his response was, ‘render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.’

It is clear to many Christians however that politics and church do not and should not mix. Churches and Christians should continue the work that Jesus and the early church started and not worry so much about aligning with a particular political entity. Our charge is the Great Commission and Great Commandment. These are two different but similar charges to Christians in the church. Sadly, an article I recently read stated that 51% of Christians do not know what the Great Commission is.

Here at Mayflower we just concluded a Bible study on the book of Daniel. Daniel was a prophet who outlasted several kings that came and went in his lifetime. One of the messages of the book was to look at Daniel’s unwavering faith and trust in God regardless of the political entity.

May we have unwavering faith in God.
