^^^^roni St. Matthew xxii:21: "lJemJor tin ! /-.

what blundering has there lieen'
Look how the cruel Roman empire tried
throua' years to crush out the life of tin?
fl t'hrisf an martyrs for simply doing their
dutj( io God, and tin n in turn, when the
H empire had he ii conquered hv .he ehuicli
^8 and the papacy was seated upon its throne
and had Greeted its palatial Vatican amid
H the ruins of the old order, see how the
haughty earthly embodiment oi tlie heavenly
autocracy sought to brim: low and
make subservient the things of Caesar!
You are familiar, doubtless, with the way
the saying was brought ahout. A party <>i
vr vouug Pharisics?I he ohl hacks ii id recently
retired in confusion- had joined with
some Herod inns or Jewish nationalists to
put to Jcsiis a catch <|iiestion to ensnare
"Him. '"Master," said tlie.v with feigned
earnestness, "\Ve know that Thou art true,
and teachcst the way of (Sod in truth,
neither earest Thou for any man, for Thou
reganlest not the person of men. Tell lis,
therefore: What thickest Thou? Is is
lawful to pay this distasteful Roman poll
tax or no?" |
If lie had answered Ves" Tie would
have been at once disercd'.tcd as tiie I
sinh ? King of Israel. If "n>>" it would
have been treason and rebellion against
Rome. So instead of falling into the trap

grasp of the whole situation, lie declares :i

lie does warn lis with the utmost plainness
not to give Caesar everything.
If we allow "the huvre mundane machine"
to run over our sou.s, iiko some ear of
