I do not believe that God, or Jesus, would be particularly thrilled with our regularly thrusting them into worldly matters.

I see, so Jesus is Lord, but only in a limited sense...He created the vast universe and spun the galaxies into their orbits, and it was He who originally ORDAINED governments in the first place (read Romans 13), but men don't need is guidance on civil matters. It was He who created all mankind in His image, yet man should not consider Him in all phases of the creation? Sorry, that doesn't fly to anyone who understands the sovereignty of God.

I'm not going to have a theological argument here, but I think there is strong support for exactly what I said. I didn't say anything about not having "guidance," - but that is a bit different than day-to-day control.

Do I believe God gives up a bit of rope? Certainly I do, and I think the Bible gives us a great deal of support for that position.
