Distinct Roles of Church and State
A Sermon on Ephesians 5:3-5
But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. (ESV)
Christianity is very practical; the object of Christianity and salvation is to make us holy; the danger of antinomianism; the Church and the moral question; the Christian Church a converting agency; not a moral agency; the Church; by producing Christians; affects the life of the State for good; the need to pray for revival.
