Income Taxes and Christians


This text, about giving "Caesar's things to Caesar," suggests, as most commentators say, that the Christian can and must pay her fair share of taxes. While we give our lives, hearts, and minds to God, give our best time, and our Love, to God, we can give money to the gov, as each bill or coin has the "owner's" name on it: "The United States of America." This is the equivalent to the portrait of Caesar on the ancient coinage. This is a command that prohibits cheating on income-taxes. The gov provides many services for all of us, and "the worker is worthy of his wages."
