GIVING TO CAESAR HIS DUE
Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.”
I was a rebel, broke the law…because of sin in me. So that I did what was contrary to the law; crime. We make excuses here in this area, because even though some have not been caught at illegal acts they sometimes ridicule and cast stones at those who have. It is no different with higher governmental offices..we can be quick to justify, throw stones for their mistakes and work they are doing or failing not to do. But the bible says the same at each election, at each office and even the most devout Christian puts their mouth on the elect…they do it to the Prophets of God and they do it to the President…no different.
Christians and sinners cheat on their taxes..stealing money every year from the government and then justify it by saying that the politicians are crooked and steal from their states each year…take kickbacks and other things…Even the poorest of citizens have an excuse for lying and stealing selling foodstamps, lying to get them, stealing claim insanity to get their hands on checks each month…robbing peter to pay Paul…excuses from a lawless society; why? Because they say their government has wronged them…and they are fed up! WOW!
But the word is clear that if we are called by Christ to respect those in authority over of…governing officials. Like a child to parent he doesn’t say to do it if they are right, He only says to do it…and it will be well with us. God promises never to leave or forsake us…he says the righteous nor their seed will beg bread…he says that Vegeance is his and that he will repay…amen. Do it as unto the Lord is the mindset to have here…hope this helps Amen.
