I tread lightly when it comes to the political scene as these things change ever so quickly and when you place pen to parchment concerning things you only have limited purview, it becomes a feeding ground for eating ones words, but here goes.
We have separation of church and state for the purpose of avoiding a theocracy. A theocracy is not necessarily bad as this will be the model at the culmination of Christ return, but for the present distress I think God has felt it best to remain as it is. Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God (Romans 13:1).
God in his knowledge and patience understands the exact scene that will produce the greatest harvest. He is not ignorant of the life, we live currently and what will happen in the future. God has also given us a great deal of liberty in choosing this day, who we shall serve. That being said, God in ones life cannot be separated. It is like pulling apart the relationship I have with my mother. She may be dead or alive, close or far, she is still my mother. The same is with my relationship with God.
Does simply mentioning the name of God speak of salvation? Absolutely not, however one should have such liberty. Less is never more when speaking about God. God should be used as freely as one feels. Those who chose to believe God does not exist only sadden me. I am not mad or even slightly worried. Why are those that do not believe become defensive when God is used?
For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear (2 Timothy 4:3).
Are we living in those days now? Talk to me!
