Religion and Society

Some in the Reformed world insist in divorcing religion from society. This view of the world minimizes the importance of baptism in the life of the Church. Baptism not only marks entrance into the Body, but it is also a political declaration. It says that the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our God. Accepting membership in the Church means accepting God’s claims for the world and how we are called to live in the world. As Leithart observes: “Christians who baptize babies implictly confess that religion and society are inseparable.”
