The origin of the separation of church and state

The need for state government was apparent after the Killing of Abel by Cain, which happened over the rejection of the sacrificial system. Cain did not recognizing the authority of God and God placed a mark on him and he was allowed to live freely as an unrepentant sinner. This was the beginning of the two lines of people on the earth, believers and non-believers. Hence government became necessary to avoid having anarchy upon the earth because of the sons of disobedience. This idea of putting a mark on someone who is free but has done some gross crime is still practiced today, with such things as Megan’s Law, ankle (monitoring) bracelets, NSA tracking, terrorist watch list, and criminal data bases.
Genesis 4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where [is] Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: [Am] I my brother's keeper?
4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
4:11 And now [art] thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
4:12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
4:13 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment [is] greater than I can bear.
4:14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, [that] every one that findeth me shall slay me.
4:15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
Discussion questions:
How far should the government go or not go to maintaining order or into tracking people?
Revelation 13:15-18
