Our Constitution says the government can institute religion.

Dr. Tony Evans says that doesn't mean the two can't cooperate in limiting this is the alternative with Dr. Tony-Dr. speaker, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative is trying to convince Christians that religion to be so private that it doesn't show up in public, or even have any influence their today. Dr. Evans will take a look at the other side of that debate. Let's join him with all grown up saying it over and over and over and over and over again. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands one nation under God. We want to raise today. Speaking today is not a question of do religion and politics makes does not request the question is how do they mix you know something is wrong when the church of Jesus Christ divided along political lines. If the church of Jesus Christ allow politics to bring about a vision and that's why 11 o'clock on Sunday morning is probably still the most segregated hour in America because political expediency often overrides the kingdom of God is a problem and that is the tip of the glory of the Lord the glory of the Lord has taken God's presence was no longer being experienced in the society. God had himself from his people in chapter 43 the glory of the Lord is about to return, and vision is reciting the return of the glory of the Lord, but in the return of the glory of the law also recites the glory of the Lord will the temple, which meant leaving the culture makes an interesting statement in verses seven through nine. He said to me the plane so well in the house of Israel will my holy name. Neither they nor their king. Three kings when they die by their shoulder correctional door close door pulls with the wall between me and them by the nations which they have committed. So I have consumed them.

God with the government in biblical days kings how to put all next week is to intrude on the rule of God in God's house thrown on the government's so you in Kingsville government and not like we allow this, you will government to an old when the Kings nations with women came when a man gets things what you will bring home a treaty which was a form of idolatry sing on the relationship that was legitimate and illegitimate relationship between church and state between government and God the temple was God's throne what you're doing is when somebody will give us his show.

Ms. Hanks sounds will pay every month of the church and state separation between God and know that God says in this house rules the temple was not God's name by bringing religion into the church. Now I am a consummate American.

The Bible says all of the team on the country and so it is very where you live and where God has placed you, but there are limitations. When these two phones are made equal domination to bring in your room to contradict the throne of God. God is government to compete with PS to serve and he slightly didn't establish that the company would have been his house, which in this case will make clear what is this relationship between God and government places we can go to start with probably the premier script on the subject that is Romans chapter 13. Every person is to be verse one says into subjection to the governing authorities, for there is no party except from God, and those which exist established by God that is already on the pole and received nation upon themselves for good behavior for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority do what you will have praise from the plane for government God to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid, for it does not bear the sword for nothing but go government is to God's behalf in promoting the limiting evil government is to promote good in society and bad writing in society and I can happen on business levels and civic levels in all kinds of things. The world's insistence is a theocracy. Feel God's mercy is by God, set up systems in the world, by which he means is called systems that are three government systems in the Bible. The family is a governmental system. Why because they have the jurisdiction and has consequences tied to behavior the charge is a governmental system has been given a certain jurisdiction with responsibility thought behavior then there is civil government, which is jurisdiction and it has to do with the order of society and God says all guidelines by which all institutions were the family the charge and the civil government. What is telling me what to do.

Bottom line, they can tell me we are not equals though the oceans and I can apply any of my civil government would say to a man in the house. He would say you kind you need me first prevent 11 three kind you underneath that institutional leader extracts from God. He is no longer governing God's way. But when you are entering the God's you have messed with his God's glory departed government is really Amelia will compromise my throne with is the job of government to a theocracy that already exist in the job reflect a rule that already exist and that is God's rule family defined within a complement God the father, and the goblins of the government is that if the company God Lord because now have a position that rise by God in God's house so where have we position politics and our worldview. Dr. Evans will have some thoughts about that when he continues her message just a moment. Stay with us. Too often it's an us versus them society even among believers.

I'll have that information once again.

After part two of today's message. Here's Dr. Evans suggests that we face today is that will allow the text to the kingdom of God. I love the story, and Joshua five.

You want to turn it but Josh was it really going to battle. If you regularly want and I go up against his enemy and his army comes alongside with this huge guy who was a captain and easily misused on numbing look at the real me. I don't know anything about come out of nowhere with everything position on but it was good to go me who you want to let him go to Joshua on your side note: this is the Lord's on translation go and tell you all elephants will sway your concern. You will become so persuasion that we have this political playgrounds job when you next and that was an abomination. There is only one through one God, the political will absolutely gonna set up models for me responsibility, but only one through Watson's when they had finished the house that lead to the gate gate facing the east God's will compromise in which kings he said when the glory of the Lord. When the house was built according to the gods. Guidelines verse 1043, as usual, man described the temple to the house of Israel describe for the church to the nation that they may be ashamed of their iniquity, and the plane at the plan put down for the house, ashamed of all they have done which one the main things was an illegitimate use of politics makes no them.

The design of the house.

First of all those rules for your family members.

That is, those who live in a house operated by those rules for business. When children bring their friends to your house, you would say if your teammates on broadened boys and they were all in your house. Becomes irrelevant, because they think it's now you know you but what will will will willyou see in this dream you know and I don't think I will all you just doing this glory along the key is to remove the word everyday along with the priest because my throne.

Right now he's back with this final comment so much out of you personally were practically is to maximize your political power and potential know that in every political party, then great righteous goals and then great unrighteous. Once you just be faithful to the Lord house is one when the glory will return to the temple, the nation's problem abomination is that the glory has left the house because the glory of there is nothing the overflow to the community.
