Render Unto...Obama....I mean.. Caesar

I got this advertisement in my email box this morning. I guess it slipped by my 'Junk Mail' filters, however it caused me to pause a moment upon reading it.

I thought of the passage in Matthew 22:17-22

17"Tell us then, what do You think? Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?"

18But Jesus perceived their malice, and said, "Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites?

19"Show Me the coin used for the poll-tax." And they brought Him a denarius.

20And He said to them, "Whose likeness and inscription is this?"

21They said to Him, "Caesar's." Then He said to them, "Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's."

22And hearing this, they were amazed, and leaving Him, they went away.

One can almost substitute Caesar's for Obama.

It may come to pass that we may actually have to do just that...

'Render Unto Obama the things that are Obama's and God the things that are God's'
