Church and State


If all men are created equal, can we deny one their faith and beliefs? If one has faith, must we not recognise their right of self-determination?
Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Religious Men.  Religious men are civilly dead. Black's Law 4th Edition.
"truly" religious man is civilly dead (dead to the legal system). The legal system cannot see such a man. As such the legal system does not have jurisdiction.
“Every man is independent of all laws, except those prescribed by nature. He is not bound by any institutions formed by his fellowmen without his consent”— CRUDEN v. NEALE 2N.C. (1796) 2 SE 70.

If one considers himself a spiritless entity (human) , for all intents and purposes do we not need to recognise his right of self determination? A strictly carnal man (secular) would be subject to the carnal man's "rule of law". But not the law of God.
Romans 8:7  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

A Human Being is dead to the word of God because said Human is spiritually dead.
James 2:26  For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

In truth, accepting two lawgivers is not acceptable.
Mathew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Nations under God will recognise both perspectives (and laws) within their foundation preambles.
Preamble to the Canadian Bill of Rights:
“Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognise the supremacy of God and the rule of Law”

Supremacy of God. Canada's founders acknowledged God is supreme and acknowledged scripture as the word of God, the truth and supreme Law. The King James Bible circa 1611 is used as a reference to the word of God. Canada, therefore, is a nation under God.

The Rule of Law is NOT afforded the position of supreme law.
Blacks Law 1st Edition
Rule of Law. “A legal principle, of general application, sanctioned by the recognition of authorities and usually expressed in the form of a maxim or logical proposition.
Bouviers Law Dictionary
Rule of Law "supremacy of impartial and well-defined laws to any individual's power".
If authorities are not recognised, the legal principle known as the “Rule of Law” is not sanctioned and is not lawful.

Church and state are functionally separate . There are laws of God and laws of the State. 
On the spiritual side, this means God authors laws for the inner man as his Creator. Both God and the inner man are spiritual beings.
On the non-spiritual (secular) side we have the “Rule of Law” / Legal System to execute laws for legal entities (ie Humans, outer man, carnal man).

God did not create legal entities (humans) - man did. Man did not create them “physically” because he is incapable, so he created them mentally, a creature of man's mind, intellectual property... and the creator controls. 

In truth, their is only one lawgiver who can save or destroy.

James 4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

Acts 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

In deception, the spirit and truth are thrust aside by secularisation so temporal law can function.

Secularize. to make secular; separate from religious or spiritual connection or influences; make worldly or unspiritual; imbue with secularism. (Random House Unabridged 2nd Ed.)
