This is simple!

But not easy.

When Jesus Christ walked the earth Rome was the equivalent of America today in many ways.

Corrupt and evil in almost every way, the government was oppressive for the masses.

Mark 12:14 -- 14 They came to him and said, "Teacher, we know that you are a man of integrity. You aren't swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are; but you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. Is it right to pay the imperial tax to Caesar or not? 15 Should we pay or shouldn't we?" But Jesus knew their hypocrisy. "Why are you trying to trap me?" he asked. "Bring me a denarius and let me look at it."16 They brought the coin, and he asked them, "Whose image is this? And whose inscription?" "Caesar's," they replied. 17 Then Jesus said to them, "Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." And they were amazed at him.

I believe we should as Christians, observe the happenings as dispassionate observers. Speak-up when we see the evil. But always remember what happened to The Roman Empire. It wasn't so powerful in the end.
