What did Jesus mean when he said;
"Pay the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor,
And pay GOD what belongs to GOD."
Jesus came to speak to the true-man.
God's children must cope with two worlds - and walk a fine line
between the two.
This is the message (between the lines) that Jesus conveys to
the true-man in Mark 12:17 and Matthew 22:21
An awakened soul understands the dual nature of it's existence.
The true-man is the spirit soul, and a child of GOD.
Jesus always spoke in parables.
The parables carried hidden truths within them.
These truths were directed to the true-man - the soul.
Only the awakened soul hears these truths.
As Jesus said,
John 10:4 "The sheep follow him, because they know his voice."
Again, a parable.-- the sheep being the true man, and the voice
of the shepherd, the word of GOD.
