Sacrifice to Caesar or to God
Eversley, 1869. Chester Cathedral, 1872. Matthew xxii. 21. "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's."

Some are Christians in heart, and not in understanding. Some in understanding, and not in heart, and some are Christians in both.
