comment Biblical basis for the doctrine of the Trinity
@LemuelAdane Perhaps I should have made it more clear, but I was trying to use this scripture to suggest that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are not a single entity, but three distinct individuals.

comment Did Paul write other letters that are not in the Bible?
There were many written works by the apostles and other early church leaders that did not "make the cut" when the Bible was canonized a few centuries after Christ's death. However, since I am a poor historian and cannot cite the source for this general claim nor the specific ones you mention, I leave this as a comment and not an answer.

comment Biblical basis for the separation of church and state
Many people cite the phrase as if it was included in the founding documents of the United States (Declaration of Independence or Constitution or Bill of Rights), when in fact as your link shows, it comes from Thomas Jefferson's personal correspondence. It is also not intended to keep religious faith and civic involvement completely separate (as some suggest), but to insure that government does not interfere with religious worship. In this light, the question can be read "what is the biblical basis for making sure government does not interfere with religious worship?"
