Give to Ceasar what is Ceasars.
Do you know the context in which those philosophies were written, and what the core morals of those stories teach?
Have you read them in context? If you have not read them in context, how did you conclude that those lines were added in support of Rome?
14And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
15Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
16And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.
17And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
What do you think that says in it's entirety?
Do you see a bias towards Rome? Or, do you see a bias towards God?
Is money, wealth, and power more important to you than your soul?
