The “Spread the Wealth” idea the present administration has attempted to entice the nation to accept is not Biblical.
Praying seriously about the state of our country and this election for the last year, God finally revealed to me what I needed to know.
Maybe he needs a better assistant.
A few weeks ago I received an Absentee Ballot due to circumstances surrounding Nov 6th. Knowing God does not want Christians to vote for anyone who actively opposes his Biblical references, is not only a vote against God, it will in turn declare an unrighteous position on the voter that automatically affects our country.
The issue of “Spread the Wealth” program was one of my many “questions for God.”
God knows the hearts of people and how much we want to help others.
The programs already administered by the government like welfare, food stamps; WIC, Medicare, etc. are given out by citizens who qualify. The funds are collected in taxes. What happens if the government is broke?
No problem. Raise taxes.
I feel better now.
So the people the government says they want to help end up with less because there is no more money from the taxpayers……
I wonder if the government is going to take from the homeless what they don’t have.
Oh. They took it from me when I was a single mother, who worked while half dead for 12 years. We barely had enough to eat but they taxed me because I had a job. Therefore, forget giving me food stamps or WIC. I didn’t qualify.
Somehow that wasn’t fair to me or my child. I should protest.
God in his infinite humor loves to entice me with his clever devices of announcing himself. As if he is playing a game, I am chasing after him through the mazes of his word so I CAN HAVE SOME PEACE!
Besides my marathon running after him, he thrives on NEVER DOING IT THE SAME WAY TWICE!
The following is his plan of equality written centuries ago that our government has shoved out the door.
1 Corinthians 8:13-15 “Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality, as it is written: “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.”
That’s it folks; plain and simple. We help each other willingly as we have so that when we need, others help us.
You ask, “Isn’t that what the government is doing?”
Giving is opposite of taking which is the government’s idea; not God’s.
God’s heavenly bank is always overflowing. Governments were not created to be a source of income for everything. Taxes are specifically for building up a defense to protect the people and infrastructure.
James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
The above verses spell out that equality is the church’s job, not the government. When God is in charge, you won’t get ripped off.
The more you give, the more abundance will flow into your life so you can give more…..
So here is a little quiz: if God controls who our leaders are and we only have 2 candidates, which one speaks from a Biblical standpoint? The following are a few of the major differences in the two candidates.
President Obama: For: abortion, gay marriage, defense cuts, raise taxes, national healthcare, more spending (no budget)
Against: support of Israel, Keystone pipeline, drilling on U.S. soil,
Governor Mitt Romney: For: Support of Israel 100%, strengthen defense, lower taxes, balanced budget, cut spending,
Against: abortion, gay marriage, Obamacare, illegal immigration.
The question you should ask yourself is do you vote your opinion of what you think this country needs or God’s point of view?
If you aren’t sure, maybe you should ask God what you should do. And if you are sure, check with God anyway; he likes that.
