Money Wisdom #157

"With that statement [Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's], Jesus dug his doctrinal grave. For he seemed to be authorising the creation of two separate and co-ordinate kingdoms, religion and what is now called the economy. To the Muslims, such a separation was (and is) nonsensical; but it was an opportunity that Europe and America seized with both hands. Between one revenue official, Matthew, and another, Adam Smith, the Christian doctrine is turned on its head.

James Buchan Frozen Desire (1997) p.41
