Ah hmmm, Minnow, what about that state church of Scotland?
John 15 18. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. John 17 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
