Acredito que estes estudos sejam importantes, pois a igreja enfrenta hoje uma situação semelhante à da igreja primitiva no império romano. Sempre que é verdadeiramente fiel à Escritura, a igreja é vista como inimiga do Estado, e há boas razões para isso. A Bíblia demanda outro senhor que não o Estado e um tipo de educação e leis radicalmente diferentes. Cristo é o Senhor, não o Estado.
Early Christians were called "heretics" and "atheists" when they denied the gods of Rome, in particular the divinity of the emperor and the statism he embodied in his personality cult. These Christians knew that Jesus Christ, not the state, was their Lord and that this faith required a different kind of relationship to the state than the state demanded. Because Jesus Christ was their acknowledged Sovereign, they consciously denied such esteem to all other claimants. Today the church must take a similar stand before the modern state.
