Since World War One the United States has engaged in wars of aggression and military occupation in Central America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. To this day the US military occupies 56 bases in Germany, 113 facilities in Italy, and 84 in Japan. They have an armed force in the “demilitarized zone” on the Korean peninsula, and hundreds of bases in at least 70 different countries.

“…the Pharisees took counsel so as they might trap Him in words. And they sent to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, ‘Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach the way of God in truth, and it does not concern You about anyone, for You do not look to the face of men. Then tell us, what do You think? Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?’
But knowing their wickedness, Yeshua* said, ‘Why do you test Me, hypocrites? Show Me the tribute coin.’ And they brought a denarius to Him. And He said to them, ‘Whose image and inscription is this?’
They said to Him, ‘Caesar’s.’
Then He said to them, ‘Then give to Caesar the things of Caesar, and to God the things of God.’”
