For Moore, The Church is Less

I missed this article by Baptist pastor James Evans, Discounting God's role in church, state when it first appeared. It is worth a read. An excerpt, aimed squarely at Judge Moore's grandstanding:
But if we blame all of our country's current problems on the failure of the state to acknowledge God, what does that say about the church? After all, isn't the church a "public acknowledgment of God?" When congregations pray, aren't they engaged in public prayer? When the Bible is read, doesn't that count as Bible reading?

To put the matter more pointedly, is the church such an inadequate institution that if God is not acknowledged in the courthouse and schoolhouse God is removed from the public sphere?
Amen, brother!
