Christ’s explanation of the separation of church and state

In Jesus’s famous explanation for the separation of church and state, He acknowledges the function of the state and He also acknowledges the function of church. The function of earthly government was ordained by God to maintain order over humanity in our fallen state. The function of religion is to minister to the higher realities and requirement of God over men. Since not all humanity acknowledge the claims (Ten Commandments) of the kingdom of heaven in their lives, it is important to have earthly government “minister” in a physical way over unrepentant sinners.
Matthew 22:15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in [his] talk.
22:16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any [man]: for thou regardest not the person of men.
22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, [ye] hypocrites?
22:19 Show me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
22:20 And he saith unto them, Whose [is] this image and superscription?
22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
Discussion questions:
Why do you think it was important for God to established government to minister?
Romans 13:1-8
