Taxes are taxing

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, April 15, 2011

"Show me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image on susperscription? 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." Matthew 22: 19 - 21


When our government talks about cutting services, it affects each one of us. When our government talks about raising taxes, it affects each one of us. It might be a misstatement when it is said that government is for the people. However, it is true when they say that it is a government by the people. The ability to tax its citizens, corporations, and business causes government to happen.

It appears that government has turned against the people when you look at the array of services that are being cut at every level of government: local, state and national.

Today is the day that the federal government looks to get its tax dollars from the people of America.

Render unto Caesar in a scriptural context, means in our day - pay your taxes!
