Another thread discusses the effects of denominations have on a country that they become a majority in. In oder not to hyjack that thread, I am starting this thread to discuss the effects that the type of denominational government has on people in their choice of how much government plays a role in their lives. For instance, it has been my limited experience that Roman Catholics tend to favor or accept big secular government (big brother) for running the country. This is due in these people being used to depending on the Catholic Church to define thier beliefs and for their salvation. Protestants in congregational lead churches are not as dependant on the church to define their beleifs; and the church has nothing to do with providing salvation. I propose that this may carry over into the political beliefs of both types of people. What about differences concerning secular government, between people in different protestant churches with different types of government? What do you think?
