Most people that have any sort of rudimentary Christian background have probably heard the phrase "render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's." And lots of people know that Jesus was talking to some of the religious people about whether they should pay tribute, or taxes, to the government. There are some people out there that like to argue that you shouldn't pay taxes, but they tend to be on the fringe and a lot of them are in jail.
What reason does Jesus give for knowing that the coins belong to Caesar's? Whose image is on the coins? Caesar's. Because Caesar's image is on the coins, we are to render them unto Caesar.
But what if you put that into context Genesis 1:27?
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Whose image are we in? God's. So doesn't that mean that we should listen to him... or render unto God's the things which are God's?
Just something interesting that I saw today.
