The Evil of Religious Liberty

Christ is King: He has supreme power and His laws bind all, even those who do not wish to follow Him. He is King both by natural right and by acquired right. Yet the evil of secular government is rooted in its seeking to separate itself from Christ’s Kingship. The Church has infallibly condemned the errors of separation of Church and state and of religious liberty. (Note, both of these are principles upon which our nation was founded.) A separation of Church and State attempts to set limits on Christ’s reign. If no religion reigns supreme, then the State is above all religions and is in fact the supreme authority, even above Christ. The error that man should be free in determining which religion to follow is the same evil as man thinking he can determine right from wrong; this is the primeval offer (temptation) of the devil. Let us pray for our nation, that one day it will be freed of the enslavement that comes from these errors.
