So here are some thoughts I’m having this morning. In the early centuries the proclamation that Jesus Christ is Lord was nothing short of a treasonous denial of Caesar’s lordship. Caesar was, definitively, not lord. To be a Christian, then, was very much high treason against the Empire.
Is this still true? I call Jesus Lord, which means Caesar is not lord. Who is Caesar in this case? The ruling power in America: The President, Congress, and since we’re talking a quasi-Democracy here, “We the People”.
I’m a Christian. So am I a traitor? I want to lean toward yes, I am. To commit myself to Jesus Christ and His uncompromisable Lordship I am denying the authority of Caesar, I am a traitor against Caesar and I am therefore guilty of high treason against the United States of America.
Does being a Christian equate to treason?
