Quick question: --------------- I understand that the early Puritans made no effort to govern separetly from, that is without, God. The Puritans made no attempt to raise up an authority of ANY KIND that was not ROOTED DEEPLY in GOD. Indeed, the Puritans fought the Catholic Royalists in the English Civil War (1642-48) over this very issue! And is not Almighty God truly the FOCUS of all our lives, and even all the Heavens too? SO... simply put... is not, BY DEFINITION, the modern concept of "separation of church from state" automatically Satanic? Is not the very notion of "an authority separate from God-ness", to wit, an authority, a power, that is NOT ROOTED DEEPLY IN GOD... is that not OBVIOUSLY SATANIC? For what power is GOOD that is not ROOTED IN GOD, who is the well-spring of all good (James 1:17)? And James 3:15 certainly LINKS unGodly types of authority with worldliness and calls them 'demonic'... So, in short, how can you logically have a GOOD, RIGHTWISE, and FAIR government... that keeps itself APART FROM, AWAY FROM, SEPARATE FROM... ALMIGHTY GOD, the ONE TRUE SOURCE OF ALL GOODNESS, RIGHTWISENESS, and FAIRNESS? And is not the very statement, nay, the very THOUGHT that man can so rule WITHOUT the guidance of God... is that not the VERY SIN of NIMROD and the TOWER OF BABEL? The Satanic swindle-lie that puffs up man's ego through pillow-talk and sweet sweet honeyed words that lure men into falsely believing that they can "stand on their own two feet" without ALMIGHTY GOD'S GUIDANCE? Where am I wrong?
