Church and State, Intellegent Design and Such Matters...
13 And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they might catch him in talk.
14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Teacher, we know that thou art true, and carest not for any one; for thou regardest not the person of men, but of a truth teachest the way of God: Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why make ye trial of me? bring me a denarius, that I may see it.
16 And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.
17 And Jesus said unto them, Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's. And they marvelled greatly at him.
-Mark 12:13-17
I don't mind if others don't believe, Christianity won't fall off the face of the planet if children aren't allowed to take white, red or green paper plates to school or if they aren't allowed to learn some form of explanation for the scientific facts that have been discovered.
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve Jehovah, choose you this day whom ye will serve; ... but as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah. -Joshua 24:15
I don't want corrupt politicians deciding who will give sermons or masses at my church any more than some don't want my religion taught in state sponsored schools.
10 And the angel said unto them, Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people:
11 for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.
-Luke 2:10-11
Merry Christmas
