Puritan Board Freshman
Your own words were the "separation of church and state is a myth. They meet in me.", not "I believe in the Reformed concept of separation of church and state". I have no problem with churchmen serving in civil service roles. I submit that your original language would have justified a co-mingling of roles precluded even by the reformed concept of separation of church and state. I am no anabaptist. I simply do not believe in a role of government in the church beyond that explicitly prescribed by the word.The separation of church and state is a myth. They meet in me. Civil government is not a necessary evil simply allowed by God due to sin. Earth and this physical, temporal existence is not evil either. It is tainted by sin, but all ordained by God. God gave Adam dominion before the Fall.
