Minister of the Church of Scotland.

comment How does the relationship of the Church of Scotland to the state differ from that of the Church of England?
What is spiritual is undefined (and Calvinism downplays the distinction between the secular and sacred realms anyway). It is clear that church members have to obey the law, pay their taxes, etc - but the state cannot tell the Church what to believe, whether or not to ordain certain people or overrule decisions of the General Assembly.
