Which theological teaching stated that the church and the state are two separate spheres of influence that can advise one another, but each is its own distinct area?
two kingdoms doctrine
Google says 'The two kingdoms doctrine is a Protestant Christian doctrine that teaches that God is the ruler of the whole world, and that he rules in two ways. The doctrine is held by Lutherans and represents the view of some Calvinists.'
Google also says that 'dominion theology' is also a christian thing.
Google states that 'Interdependence theory is a social exchange theory that shows how the rewards and costs associated with interpersonal relationships collaborate with peoples' expectations from them. This theory comes from the idea that closeness is the key to all relationships; that people communicate to become closer to one another.'
So is it D?
Absolutely not. http://www.breakpoint.org/2017/08/reformation-politics-2-luther-two-kingdoms/
There are few Lutheran teachings that have been more discussed and criticized. However, as a foil, many other competing doctrines want to give religion (organized or personal) full authority over behaviour. Witness Roy Moore and the Ten Commandments in his courtroom, and the occassional criminal arguing God told him to kill someone.
