Empire to Kingdom of God (5) Secularism

Focusing in on one nation, the state dominates the church.

In the last century, secularism set in and the church was squeezed out of its place of privilege.
The state still uses power and control to achieve its purposes and create a good society. The demonic principalities and power still work through the state to accomplish their purposes.

The church and the state both work from the edge of society. The government passes laws and issues decrees. It sends its agents and taxgathers to enforce its power and control.

The church operates in a similar way. People gather in the church to receive guidance and support. They then return to their neighbourhoods to live.
