Anthropology means the doctrine of man, and this is an important subject when we deal with church and state problems, because what we find today is that the Christian church, the faithful church, and the civil government have a different doctrine of man. If you believe man is fallen and needs salvation, you are at odds with the civil government that says man is naturally good, or at the worst, neutral, and all he needs is training or education, and all will be well with the world.
