Yes, I agree we are to bring everything to God but I also agree with Kirk that an established Church whether Byzantine or Tzarist binds the Church to the world and I do not find this compatible with the Gospel. I believe that a politically esatablished Church renders the Church of this world as well as in this world.

The Coptic Orthodox Church too has been fortunate to have not been a state religion.

I have absolutely no problem with Christians taking part in politics as in every other sphere of life and bringing their Christian influence to bear.
