The Holy Scriptures State: â€œFor what does it profit a man or woman to gain the whole world and lose his soul?â€â€¦ â€œWhat would a man or woman give in exchange for his soul?â€
Iâ€™ve recently sat in a very lonely and hurtful place as I watched some known ministerial persons, who sit in theÂ utmost seats, settle for not even 30 pieces of silver for acts of spiritual prostitution, but in doing so, did not render unto Caesar (the world of politics) that which was hisâ€¦ and unto God, that which was His!
I honestly donâ€™t feel the need to get into the depth of what took place in this Chicago political arena, but it has caused the hearts of the True-Baptized-Believers in Christ to bleed as many now ponder their own beliefs.
Those who have committed an act of spiritual distrust have only to carefully read the scriptures for the disposition, which is set-forth by God for those betrayers. It clearly says that after Judas betrayed Christ and took the blood money, it then dawned on him what he had doneâ€¦ Judas, then filled with guilt, went out and hung himself!
You cannot toy with God or his trusted servants. It is wise to render unto Caesar that which is hisâ€”and unto God that which is His. Know thatâ€”God is not the author of confusion.
