From Greg Boyd’s ReKnew:
I encourage you to read this article. In it, Rick Perry claims that the idea of the separation of the church and state is from Satan, and he and others will next week embark on a 40 days to save America campaign, which (as far as I can tell) means “40 days to save America from Obama” campaign.
Seems to me Perry got it exactly wrong. Satan is the one who tried to get Jesus to identify his kingdom with the kingdoms of this world, and even offered to let him run the whole thing. Thankfully, Jesus had the wisdom to refuse the offer (LK 4:5-7). He knew that his kingdom “was not of this world” (Jn 18:36).
There are a few things Perry and his folks get right. For example, we should pray for our country. Just remember to pray for all others as well. READ THE REST HERE.
HOW IMPORTANT (OR NOT) IS THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE?
