Obama use Jesus to brand his taxation plans

But as a Christian it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.

These are the words of President Obama, referencing the Gospel of Luke.

It is not the first time religion has been invoked for political gain, and it probably will not be the last.  At this year’s annual National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, President Obama tried out a new election year pitch to bolster his argument in favor of taxing the rich: Jesus.

“If I’m willing to give something up, as someone who’s been extraordinarily blessed, give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I think that actually makes economic sense. But as a Christian it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,” said President Obama, referencing the Gospel of Luke.

“I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years. And I believe in God’s command to love thy neighbor as thyself. I know a version of that golden rule is found in every major religion and every set of beliefs,” he said.

My comment:

To use the name of Jesus to raise taxes is a Babylonian practice. Because both the Romans and the Persians put heavy taxes on their people to raise money for the Empires military expenses.

Like Obama, the Constantine the great, the emperor of Rome claimed to be a “Christian”.

Jesus took up a coin. It could have been an image of Obama in the flip side. He told his students to go and give the american emperor what belongs to Him. 

 Mark 12:15-17

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.

If you strip Christians for all their money by raising taxes, there will be no money left for mission and Christian social work. Christians are not entitled to pay taxes at all. But we are instructed by the Messiah to pay what is demanded, so no one can use this topic against us,

  1. I AGREE THE GOVERNMENTS AROUND THE WORLD DO NOT WANT TO FOLLOW GOD BUT USE WORDS AS THEY PLEASE FROM THE BIBLE… BUT THEN THEY WILL NOT RECOVER AND WILL NOT DO AWAY WITH THE PLAN GOD HAS TO BRING PEOPLE TO THERE KNEES OR BOAST AND REJECT GOD ALL TOGETHER .
    Isaiah 24

    1Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

    2And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

    3The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word.

    4The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

    5The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

    6Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left
    THE STORM IS COMING WHO WILL YOU CHOOSE THE CREATOR OR THE CREATURE??????

  2. Hi Ivar,
    I believe that this has an even deeper meaning than simply paying taxes. At the time Yeshua walked the earth as a man, Caeser was more than just a head of State, Caesar was considered to be a god. So, yes, we are to pay our taxes, but at the same time, we are not to follow any of Ceasar’s unholy edicts. Not enough emphasis is placed on the latter. This may become a matter of life or death in the near future.
    If Islam’s Caliphate should continue to rise and should become the end times reigning power, then this matter of taxation has a deep relavance to worship. Islam imposses a tax called the Jazirya, (I’m not sure about the spelling) this is a tax that is to be paid by the infidel. These taxes are used to further the advancement of allah.
    Obama is very knowledgable on all things Islam; no surprise there. In one of his many pro allah, anti Yeshua, speaches, he spoke about another, but simillar issue. This was about the issue of muslims being able to pay Zakat which is like a charitable tithe of 5% of a muslims income. What is not widely known, is that a portion of this money MUST always go towards jihad. Many of these so called charities were nothing more than slush funds used to fund jihad. Once it became a public issue, many of these charities were shut down.
    Obama gave a speech sayig that our unjust laws were making it difficult for muslims to pay Zakat. This should let everyone know just where our president would stand, should the issue of taxing the infidel ever surface.
