Separation Of Church And State
This was recognition that the state should deal with civility and the church should deal with morality--ones relationship to God. Today it is being made to mean more and more that if I believe in God, then I cannot express that belief. What happened to equal protection? In response to those who want to ban God from the public eye, we must beware that we do not cross over and seek to enforce religion on others. The power of faith and morality is found in God.

Separation Of Church And State
It was not about removing religious principles, expressions of faith, belief, etc. from civic leaders, but that there should not be required "belief" or "faith" in order to hold civil office; nor should the state support or favor one religious belief (or none at all) over another. Separation of church and state does not mean separation of righteousness, faith, or religious principles from people in the state.

Separation Of Church And State
In early America, there was no separation of church and state; different colonies had different churches supported by the state. Rhode Island was founded on the principle that the state should deal with civil issues and not favor one religion over another. Likewise the churches should not control the state, but should preach the gospel--be ye reconciled to God.

What Is The Purpose Of The Law
"Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made: and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator."..."Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith." Galatians 3:19 & 24.
