God and Politics in Secular India

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
The church is separate from the state. Thus, historically, it is seen that even though a government wasn’t secular, God was secular. He didn’t drag religion into politics, but silently did intervene to administer temporal justice and order in the world (i.e. temporal justice in relation to temporal authority). With regard to the church, it doesn’t seem that God is interested in an organized religion at all. Christianity had nothing to do with an external temple. Each Christian is the temple of God. This is what frees Paul to do his own theology, separate from the Twelve.
