Verse of the Day: Jesus Says Pay Your Taxes

April 11, 2007


17 Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”

18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test Me, you hypocrites? 19 Show Me the tax money.”

So they brought Him a denarius.

20 And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?”

21 They said to Him, “Caesar’s.”

And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 22 When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way.

Matthew 22:17-22 (NKJV)

I love this story about Jesus and the Pharisees. The Pharisees were always trying to trap Jesus to get Him in trouble. Every time they never succeeded. They tried to outsmart Jesus and it just didn’t work! Isn’t it kind of funny how Jesus basically told the Pharisees off?

With Tax Day (April 17th) less than a week away, now is the time to start and finish your taxes if you haven’t already started! Jesus said pay your taxes so get on it! What more motivation do you need?

    Lets don’t forget Matt 17:24 …Of whom do the kings of the earth tax, strangers or their own children?, and Peter answered srangers, and Jesus said, then the children are free. The truth of the matter is this.There are two basic tax laws. The Foreign Corp.Tax ACT of 1909, which churches are fooled into filing exemption from,all 501(c)3 Churches are listed as foreign Corporatioms in the tax regulations. The second is the Public Salary tax act of 1939.The latter concerns persons receiving payments from the Federal Government (Wages are defined as payment from the Federal or State)26 USC 3401.In 1939, foreigners subject to the tax were renamed taxpayers,sad but true.The word isn’t even proper english…talk about identity thief.Have any doubts?,e-mail me, I have 15 years of research. Meanwhile go to, and see refund checks for the (children) for all monies withheld, everything. The process involves correcting W-2’s stating that wages (federal payments)were not payed.Liens removed,money levied returned, with letters stating there is no tax due. So Jesus was right,and our Founding Fathers headed His Words.

    “The best form of slavery is one that is self imposed.”
