Right by you? Or this single Church you found?



Google Jesus & taxes, plenty of sites.

Jesus does say, "Don't Cheat", don't collect more then required.



So the gospels leave no doubt that Jesus taught his followers not only in words, but by example, to give to the government any taxes that are owed.In Romans 13:1, Paul brings further clarification to this concept, along with an even broader responsibility to Christians:

"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God." (NIV)

Tax collectors also came to be baptized and said to him, “Teacher, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Collect no more than you are authorized to do.”

So, because Jesus put forth statement to not fight the Govt in regards to paying taxes, it is now seen as Jesus was "for" the taxation of people and for what exactly?

Yes, he apparently supported law.

He was against cheating, trying to collect more then owed.



Neither John the Baptist nor Jesus Christ rebuked the tax collectors of their day for their profession: they had a legitimate job, even though they collected taxes for a foreign, pagan, tyrannical, and persecuting government; but they were not to abuse their power as tax collectors for any personal gain (Luke 3:12-13; 5:27; 19:1-9). The Lord Jesus Christ understood and taught that part of the circulating currency obviously belonged to Caesar (Matt 22:15-22).

Ahhh, so here is what we have.

Jesus wasn't for paying taxes to a Govt to take care of people.

He was for not defying the Govt and owing what is owed.

So, who determines what is owed?

You are choosing to read into it what you want it to mean.

I'm sure if you Google - - you can find the wording that you prefer.

Don't need Google to tell me up is up and down is down.

Can't help that you need it.
