GOD & COUNTRY

INFINITY VS.INFINITESIMA

 What does it mean to: "Render unto Caesar the things

that are Ceaser’s, and unto God what is God's? 

(Mark 12:17)   It's pretty plain what it does not mean. 

The passage certainly does not mean God and country

belong compatibly together.  It means the two are

separate, and therefore should be treated that way. 

 

Hence, in this passage Jesus himself made quite plain his

belief in the separation of church and state.  For if Satan

is this world's ruler, as the Bible said, he would certainly

rule through this world's rulers. And because absolute

power corrupts absolutely, Satan is in truth the dark side

of man (or works  through it, if you're inclined to blieve in

that way).So how noble and righteous is it to proclaim

"God & Country"? 

 

It certainly has nothing to do with the Bible's

teachings.  "Behold!  All nations are like drops

in a bucket, like fine dust on the scales... They

are accorded by God as less than nothing and

emptiness..." says the Lord in Isaiah 40: 15-17. 

And in a seemingly endless cosmos wherein our

entire galaxy is but an invisible speck, this passage

is an understatement indeed. 

 

If by very definition we speak of a supreme Godhead - the

ultimate Mystery underlying the lawful and creative power of the entire universe - then why should something less than infintesimal receive special treatment in infinity?  Nay, national gods exist only in the minds of demented rulers and their clueless followers.

 

Did any nation claiming their own special god ever long

prevail?  For instance the Hebrews suffered destruction

from the Assyrians, exile from the Babylonians, near

annnihilation from the  Romans, and persecution from the

Europeans culminating in the Nazi holocaust - while no God

intervened.  Now Islam indoctrinates thousands of suicidal

mass murderers in the name of their own god daily, only to

reap back as much mass slaughter as they sow.

 

Moreover, the united States now believes it is its God-

given right to to attack any small sovereign country

it disfavors, as its Satanic religious right cheers it on -

all the while calling Islam "Satanic" ( which is

actually true, since it takes one to know one). 

 

Meanwhile enough of the masses always rally behind the

slaughter to give it sanction.  And the rallying cry always

becomes "God and Country!", then finally "My country

right or wrong!".  Little do they know the only thing truly

divine in human beings is the goodness they can tap within

themselves, and their ability to help others as well.

 

And revelations from that sacred well appear

In Malachi 24: 7 and Isaiah 2: 4:“Nations shall

not lift sword against nation; neither shall they war

anymore.”  This sacred realization is echoed

resoundingly in the foundings of all great religions

through the universal Golden Rule.  (See “What

Good is Faith” in this site.)   Matthew 24: 7 states

that when nation continues to rise against nation it

soon will be the beginnings of the final sufferings.

Therefore Revelation 14: 7 implores all nations of

the earth to “fear God; for the hour of judgment has

come!”

 

Now it's time for you to figure it out.
