GIVE TO CAESAR WHAT IS CAESAR’S…

This is usually the battle cry of those politicians who want to impose laws that are supposedly for the common good of all citizens. They don’t want the Church intervening with their politics- reiterating the separation of Church and State. It can also be heard from lukewarm Pastors. Is this reasoning valid?
Yes, it is valid. Give to Caesar what is to Caesar’s holds TRUTH and came from the mouth of the incarnate God Himself Jesus Christ.
The next question is: What do Caesar own? Money, government power, buildings like the twin towers perhaps? Yep, Caesar owns them, but they are all just an illusion invented by Caesar, it could easily become play money- look at what happened to the Libyan dollar and the Japanese currency during world war 2. – all these illusions could become worthless anytime. Even Caesar’s life could be taken anytime by God… ( take note Obama and Lagman). Caesar does not own the people, Caesar does not own our minds and bodies and definitely not our souls…
What do God, the Creator of everything own???
YES, give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.
