The Christian concept of the secular and the spiritual is founded on the words of Jesus: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s” (Mark ). Two distinct, but not altogether separate, areas of human life and activity had to be distinguished; hence, a theory of two powers came to form the.

Books everybody read. Some books are religious books. Some books are not religious. Some meditation are not religious. Some meditation are bundle. The two natures of a human being, “spiritual” and “secular,” are like two sides of a coin.
Remove one side and the coin no longer exists. It’s actually impossible to remove a side from a coin but even if you deface a side it is still a side. Just like the two sides of a coin, spiritual and secular cannot be separated. Question: "Does the Bible make a distinction between the secular and the sacred?"

He then traces their redefinitions, transformations, and recombinations in the power interactions of the Age of Empire and its aftermath.
