Give to Caesar what is Caesar's; Give to God what is God's
Christians are commanded to give to Caesar what is Caesar's. But who is Caesar in America? I submit for consideration that until formally revoked, our Caesar is not a person or group of people but rather our Constitution. The human element of our government is to serve, not rule this "written Caesar." Therefore the federal government only has the right to demand from us that which is reconcilable with this document. Above all, however, we are to give to God what is God's, and he is sovereign over all earthly rulers. What belongs to him supersedes all else.
