Jurisdictional Authority

When God established the validity of certain organizational structures he did so by designating the jurisdictional authority for those organizations. For example, when God established the church and the state, he designated separate jurisdictional boundaries for each. The King or government ruler was not to infringe on the jurisdiction of the church and the church leaders were not to try and perform the functions designated to the state.
