READ THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Psalm 98-104
STOLEN FROM GOD AND GIVEN TO CAESAR?
The enigmatic saying of Jesus in the Gospel today, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s,” is often quoted to defend the principle of separation between the Church and the State. Doing so, Jesus is gravely misquoted. Jesus did not mean to separate the Church from the State. He did not mean that the Church must confine herself on the spiritual realm only while the State must attend to the temporal affairs of men and women. When we hear Jesus say, “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God,” do we not also hear our selves asking the question, “And what is it that really belongs to Caesar that does not belong to God?” Our question will yield only one simple answer: nothing except one. All things that belong to Caesar came from God, except Caesar’s sins. Inversely, all that belongs to Caesar, save his sins, belongs to God, too. But not everything that belongs to God belongs to Caesar.
