    “ When Christ said, `Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's and unto God the things that are God's', He gave to the State a legitimacy it had never before enjoyed, and set bounds to it that had never yet been acknowledged. And He not only delivered the . When we are told to render to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, which means we ourselves should be responsible for government. Therefore, we owe the obligation of serving in public office, of being informed citizens, of voting, and of being active in politics at all levels. That is part of the duty we render to Caesar.

    The post “Render Unto Caesar – Taxes & the Role of the State” is offered as a reflection upon the readings for the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time, liturgical cycle A –Isaiah , , Ps I Thessalonians ; Matthew (“render Unto Caesar what is Caesar’s). Banner/featured image of a Marcus Aurelius denarius. He answered, "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's" (see Matthew ). And that has become the standard for what we owe the government. We owe the payment of taxes for the necessary services government renders to us.

      Peace in Christ! When Jesus said “render to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s” (Mt. ), He was wisely avoiding a trap in which the Pharisees sought to catch Him. If Jesus said not to pay taxes, then they could indict Him against Rome. At this time in history, everyone in the Roman Empire knew that Caesar was the ultimate authority—even considered to be divine in some sense. However, Paul wrote that God is actually the ultimate authority (v.1), and Caesar is simply God’s “minister” whom God permits to rule (v.4). What a subversive message!

The whole saying goes like this: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that. "Render unto Caesar" is the beginning of a phrase attributed to Jesus in the synoptic gospels, which reads in full, "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's".[Matthew ] This phrase has become a widely quoted summary of the relationship between Christianity, secular government, and society.

The original message, coming in response to a. When Jesus said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s,” He was drawing a sharp distinction between two kingdoms. There is a kingdom of this world, and Caesar holds power over it. But there is another kingdom, not of this world, and Jesus is King of that (John ).

Christians are part of both kingdoms, at least temporarily. Jesus drew a stark distinction between those two kingdoms when He said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's” (Mark ). Our Lord Himself always rendered to Caesar what was Caesar's, but He never offered to Caesar what belongs solely to God.

Here is Jesus’ timeless answer. He asked for a denarius, and then he asked them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” (v. 20). They told him that it bore the image and inscription of Caesar.

And he replied, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s” (v. 21). When Jesus is put to the question by a group of Pharisees and Herodians, he cleverly turns their questioning on its head, responding with the oft cited quote: "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, Render to God the things that are God's.".

This is Caesar’s, render to him the things that are Caesar's. So the fundamental principle has to be observed. Even though we, as Christians, we, as God's people, belong to the Kingdom of God supremely, nevertheless, we are not to ignore the necessary obligations that come along with being in this world.

(Psalm ) In doing so, however, they do not forget that Jesus said that they must render certain things to Caesar. Their Bible-trained consciences require that they consider prayerfully to what extent they can pay back what Caesar calls for.

Justin Martyr in Chapter XVII of his First Apology, who wrote, And everywhere we, more readily than all men, endeavor to pay to those.They said, “Caesar’s.” Then he said to them, “Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”.When I responded that taxing anyone at 70 percent is theft, the Render-unto-Caesar Christians came out of the woodwork.

There are two Bible passages that Leftists love: “You shall not judge” (Matt. ) and “render unto Caesar” (). It’s amazing how judgmental people get when you point out that the Emperor has no clothes.
