Matthew 22:19-22, Mark 12:14-17 and Tithing



MT 22:19-22; MK 12:14-17 AND TITHING

DID JESUS FORBID GIVING MAN'S MONEY TO GOD'S WORK IN MT 22:19-21 AND MK 12:14-17?

Would some Bible genius please explain these texts to me? The commentaries fail miserably.

Matt 22:19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
Matt 22:20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
Matt 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
Mark 12:14 … Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
Mark 12:15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.

SIN BEFORE THE LAW OR OUTSIDE THE FOMAL LAW
John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
Jn 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie
Rom 1:27 leaving the natural use of the woman
Rom 1:28 as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Rom 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Rom 2:15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
Rom 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Rom 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.   [see verse 20]
Rom 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression … [partial ignorance]
Rom 5:15 … for if through the offence of one many be dead …
Rom 5:16 … for the judgment was by one to condemnation …
Rom 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one …
Rom 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation …
Rom 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners …
Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Rom 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death …

Gal 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
