Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and to God, the things which are God’s. ~ from Luke20, Mark12,Matt.22
(Give to the government the things which are the government’s, and to God, the things which are God’s.)
In Church this last Sunday, did the pastor preach against the abortion provisions of Obamacare? Did he preach against the Federal government’s war and killing in the middle east countries? Did he refrain from honoring and praising Church members who are military? Did he walk over to the US Flag which stands tall near the pulpit and take it down and throw it on the ground? Did he preach against drone strikes on innocent children in foreign countries? Did he preach about how the US Gov. is supporting and financing groups that kill Christians in the middle east? Did he preach against the brainwashing currently being promoted which encourages Christians to fear and support military war against Muslims instead of loving them like Jesus loves? Did he preach against this Obamacare mandated healthcare info storage/ RFID/ tracking computer chip wearable or insertable “device”?
Did he preach that our allegiance and obedience is to our Lord Jesus Christ alone and not to earthly kingdoms, nations and governments? Did he teach that we must always obey God over man, even if that “man” is the government? Was he clear to preach that our allegiance is to the kingdom of God which is not of this world? Did he mention that loyalty to Jesus’ kingdom will create serious conflict with family, society, nation and government? No? Why?
Because if his Church is registered with the government as an incorporated business “body” or business, he is obligated by law to not speak against any US Government policy or government propaganda, but to demonstrate support, compliance and obedience to the US Federal Government.
The physical insertable “computer chip” is not the mark of the beast. The mark of the beast is spiritual: the heart/mind love for self and this world, and the deeds that follow.
The mark is about allegiance, loyalty, love and worship– it is about to whom we acknowledge as our God, our trust, loyalty, love, allegiance and owner.
Through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and His covenant with us, we belong to God. Not the government. That is why we are non-compliant with this chip thing. Not because it is the mark of the beast, but because we love Jesus Christ our Beloved Savior and want to show Him our love by demonstrating we know who owns us. We are already marked (or sealed) by HIM. We belong to Him.
Incorporated Churches belong to Caesar. So let the government have the Churches then! Let Caesar then be given what belongs to Caesar (the Incorporated Churches). But our bodies, minds, love, worship, actions, obedience, loyalty and allegiance belong to God, let us give ourselves wholly to Him.
