Why this Jewish agnostic has come to love Christianity

I have not, needless to say, become converted to the divinity of Christ – or the divinity of anybody for the matter. Nor do I believe it is always wise to turn the other cheek (yes, on occasion, it’s a good idea). But there is one sentence reputedly uttered by Jesus for which I am eternally grateful: “Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s.” From that one line comes hope for civil society. It is what we are battling over today.
