Then the Contemporary American Church went and plotted how they might entangle Him in His talk. And they sent to Him their disciples with the NEA, saying, “Teacher, we know that You are not board certified, but You are true, and teach the way of God in truth; nor do You care about anyone, for You do not regard the State’s Teacher certification program. Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to give our children over to the Gub’ment for their education, or not?”
But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test Me, you hypocrites? Bring me the smallest of your children.”
So they brought Him a toddler.
And He said to them, “Whose image rests on this child?”
They said to Him, “God’s.”
And He said to them, “Render therefore to Gub’ment the things that are Gub’ment’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” When they had heard these words, they wondered who would educate their children if not the Gub’ment.
Yep, it’s a quandary…
