“To be sure a father regulates in his family the religion of that family. But when the government was organized, the family was not set aside, but remained; and the government received only a limited task, which is defined by the sovereignty in the individual sphere, and not least of all by the sovereignty of Christ in His Church.”
“The sovereignty of the State and the sovereignty of the Church exist side by side, and they mutually limit each other.”
