| PROPOSED RENOVATION WORK ON THE
CHURCH EXTERNAL WALLS
REFLECTION FOR TWENTY-NINTH SUNDAY
Religion and Politics :ANY CONNECTION?
In our celebration today we shall hear of two great political leaders, Cyrus, the king of Babylon and Caesar the Emperor of Rome. We consider the question: what have political leaders to do with God? Don't political leaders and God fall into completley different catergories? God's word today throws light into this question.
Religion and politics should live in harmony in anyone who loves God and is committed to nation or community building. The Lord shows his respect for political leaders, because through them he will provide for the material well being of his people. On the other hand, however we are told that all political leaders should regard themselves as tools in God's hand.
He is the Lord; there is no other God besides him.
Taxation has always been a contentious issue. If we accept state benefits we must be prepared to pay for them. Tribunals are uncovering sophisticated forms of tax evasion. White collar theft seems to be outside the territory of conscience. The most important commandment is not to get caught. 'It is unjust not to pay the social security contributions required by the legitimate authority.'
