Church, Family, Society, and State

The church witnesses to the righteousness of the kingdom, penetrating society like leaven or salt, but it is not identified with the world it touches. The church is neither competitive nor correlative to the family, to the state, or to other societal institutions. These are the forms of life in the world, from which the church is distinguished.

(-Edmund P. Clowney, Countours of Christian Theology: The Church, P.191)
