Daily Devotion: Secular Humanism and Separation of Church and State, Pt.2
Bible Reading: Romans 13:1-9
Key Verse: Verse 3 - “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:”
Key Words: For rulers are not a terror to good works
The Appignani Humanist Legal Center (AHLC) is a humanist law organization much like the ACLU who looks for a fight against anything which appears to be the violation of church and state. Here is an online ad for lawyers to join their team.
“The Appignani Humanist Legal Center is always looking for qualified Humanist-minded attorneys to join our legal team in the fight to defend the separation of church and state and equal rights for humanists, atheists, and other freethinkers.”
There is no such thing as separation of church and state!!! We read in Romans 13:3, “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same.”
The rulers in the realm of civil government, who are ministers of God, must rule according to God’s law, the standard of good and evil. No government has the freedom to rule by some arbitrary man-centered standard of good and evil. No ruler or group of rulers has the authority to establish any law that is in opposition to God’s law.
The following is a quote from USA Today, 2/16/88: “The Constitution of the United States says nothing about the separation of church and state. That phrase does appear in the Soviet Constitution. Nothing in our history indicates that the government should be independent of moral values or that religious people shouldn’t take an active role in our government. The first official act of the U.S. Congress formed under our Constitution was to select a chaplain. The second act was to authorize the purchase of 20,000 Bibles to give to the Indians. So much for separation of church and state!
What to do:
✞ Know God’s Word; live by God’s Word, even in this day of “secular humanism.”
