On the Difference Between Rendering to Caesar and Rendering to God

No Double Dipping

Let’s be very clear about one thing:

Mark 12:17 says:

“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

It does NOT say:

“Render to God whatever you want, and Caesar must render to you a tax credit as if you rendered it to Caesar.”
