Render Unto Caesar, Or Aiding and Abetting the Enemy?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is a common mistake that man incorrectly applies the Scriptures that say “Render unto Caesar…” Matthew 22 tells us more things than just that we are to give to Caesar those things that are Caesar’s. Most importantly, we are to render unto God the things which are his. Few do that or even know what it means.

In the context of the Scripture, the Pharisees, as was typical, were attempting to “trick” Jeshua into saying something they could use against him. They asked Him if it was lawful to give tribute to Caesar. His answer has always been cut short by the man-gods and blind and ignorant followers of the man-gods. Our focus has become rendering unto Caesar with no tribute given to our Creator – the maker of all things – to the point that we spend nearly all of our time focusing, fretting, and becoming angry and warlike to those who disagree politically. How silly and a waste of time.

I have even heard conversations from “Christians” how that it is our responsibility to become involved in politics at every level. I couldn’t disagree more.

1 John 2 tells us: 16 For all that is in this world, (as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life) is not of the Father, but is of this world.

17 And this world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that fulfilleth the will of God, abideth ever.”

It doesn’t say that some of the things in this world are not of the Father. It says all. If all that is in this world is not of the Father, then who belongs to those things?

2 Corinthians 4:4 says,  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds, that is, of the infidels, that the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ, which is the image of God, should not shine unto them.”

The god of this world is Satan. It is his for a time. “…this world passeth away” and all that is of this world. Not only that but the things of this world, of which we seem to be more interested in worshiping than our Creator, has “blinded the minds…that the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ, WHICH IS THE IMAGE OF GOD, should not shine unto them.”

All the things of this world (Satan’s) blinds our minds and causes us to not see Truth. Why then do we worry, fret, and get angry, to a point of thoughts of civil violence and war over the things of this world? In our blindness we cannot see the corruption of Government and those who are a part of it. The actions of government officials is criminal and evil and yet we aid and abet their behavior…we join in and become a part of that corruption.

If you spotted a person in the process of robbing a bank, would you join in with them to help them get the job done? If you saw another person about the take the life of another man, would you step in and pull the trigger for them…or provide them with more ammunition to make sure the job gets done?

Why then are we intent on aiding and abetting the criminals in Washington? Why are we intent on being a part of the god of this world?

Revelation 18 tells us that we are to not be a part of the Whore of Babylon. The United States Government and ALL that is in this world, make up part of the Whore of Babylon: “It is fallen, it is fallen, Babylon that great city, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of all foul spirits, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drunken of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich of the abundance of her pleasures.

And I heard another voice from heaven say, Go out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Why then, do we persist in aiding and abetting Satan?
