Our Government is not a Throne of Grace


Once again I am surprised at the blatant blindness of people. You would think I would learn.  I am caught between their  blindness or  purposely don’t turn the porch light on? If one is truly blinded of God‘s word it is one thing, but to ignore the truth is another. What boat are they sailing on?

I wonder what God thinks about our welfare system. Now he is a great God of mercy and loves the poor.  In fact one of the church missions was set up to help the poor, the widows and orphans. James 1:27Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. ” This is the church, not government.

If God is a God of justice (Proverbs 31:19 “Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”) he would want us to help the poor and needy. That is what I just said, the poor and needy. Not those who ride around in SUV‘s, have manicured nails, collect food stamps and buy alcohol and cigarettes with it. NO, I don’t believe that is what the Bible teaches.

Now don’t go jumping on me. If you believe for one minute I am not all for helping the poor, call my accountant.

God does not waste anything and he expects us to do the same. Do you think he approves of our hard earned tax dollars wasted on alcohol and cigarettes? What about programs that benefit one race of people over another? What about financial aid for college students who buy junk, candy, and items that have nothing to do with their classes? What about those same students who collect financial aid, go to school one semester and drop out? Do they pay that money back? Get my point here?

I cite those instances as I am well aware of this occurring right here where I live. These are just a few of the many  financial abuses of our government and the people who have a leak in their think tank pushing to raise our taxes, or borrow more money to make loans to groups like Solyndra. You know the company our present administration gave  500 million dollars only to declare bankruptcy? Wonder where that money is now.

It doesn’t have to be rocket science people to understand the laws of give and take. Our government takes, and we just keep giving. Does the government realize when they have taxed us to death we will end up like Cuba? What happens when the money runs out? What happens when China won’t lend us anymore money? Oh, I know they will run to Donald Trump and ask him for it. lol. Good luck Mr. Secretary of the Treasurer getting an extra dime from him.

The Bible is clear about being stewards of that which God has given to us.

Proverbs 13: 11 “Wealth obtained by fraud dwindles, but the one who gathers by labor increases it.” In other words work.

Psalm 112: 5 “It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice.” In other words give fairly.

Psalm 37:21 “The wicked borrows and does not pay back, but the righteous is gracious and gives.” In other words, don’t take if you don’t need it.

Hebrews 13:5 “Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have.” In other words don’t make money an idol.

Romans 12:13 “Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” In other words give of your own accord.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. ” In other words, if people would read the Bible and follow it, place God first in their lives we wouldn’t need welfare, food stamps and other government agencies to provide for us. His riches come from Heaven and are infinite.

In other words, the government was never created to supply our needs. Only God can do that.

  1. Thank you Naphtali a powerful message and yes indeed where are our priorities, God tells us to help others especially in His family, we are there for each other. I never worry about money, I don’t have much but it is always enough and I give constant thanks for God’s provision and He also provides treats.

    God’s work done in God’s way never lacks God’s supply.

    God bless you greatly my friend as you bless others – Christian Love Anne

  2. “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.” (Alexis de Tocqueville, 1831)

    Sadly, we are there.
