God & Caesar

Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s (Matthew 22:21)

I shall continue to do my duty, to the best of my ability, so long as permitted to remain in the Army, supporting whatever Administration may be in power, in their endeavor to suppress the rebellion and maintain National unity, and never desert it because my vote, if I had one, might have been cast for different candidates.

True law is a harmony of right reasoning and nature. It applies to everyone in all places and times, for it is unchanging and everlasting. It commands each of us to do our duty and forbids us from doing wrong. Its commands and prohibitions guide good and prudent people, but those who are wicked will listen to neither. It is not right to try to alter this law. We cannot repeal any part of it, much less of away with it altogether. No senate or assembly of people can free us from its obligations. We do not need anyone to explain or interpret it for us…There is one Divine Master and Ruler over all of us who is creator, judge, and enforcer of this law.
