 When the church seeks the power of the state to accomplish its goals, however good they may be, the church is in danger of making deals with the devil.  Because they appeared to offer expedient ways to accomplish good, the devil’s deals were appealing.  Through prayerful discernment of God’s will, Jesus said “No deal!”  Jesus continued to choose the more difficult way of the cross.
