A Taxxing Subject
We are told that the Americand founders were devout, puritanical christians, and that the American War of Independence we are told about fighting taxxes without representation.
However jesus said "render unto Ceaser what is Ceaser's..."
This means pay your taxxes... and I might point out that the Roman empire was far more oppressive than King George.
I am not suggesting that the taxxation in America was done fairly, nor am i suggesting the War of Independence was wrong, but I an pointing to how even the most "devout" who claim to live to the word of the bible pick and chose the parts that are convenient to them.
