Online version of Separation of Church and State: God’s Churches – Spiritual or Legal Entities?

Pastor Jason Cooley calls God Betrayed: Separation of Church and State/The Biblical Principles and the American Application the encyclopedia of information on the issue of separation of church and state. For one who has some concept of the biblical principles involved, the author was encouraged to write Separation of Church and State: God’s Churches -Spiritual or Legal Entities?, a book which gets to the church issues of incorporation, 501(c)(3), how a church may utilize property without becoming a legal entity, etc. much more succinctly. This following online study presents Section VI of God Betrayed and all of Separation of Church and State.
