"if we were to give account of all the mega-church ministers who live a life of luxury with the funds they solicit from their unsuspecting audiences"
Or should that be "gullible"?
Lets face it the Liberals have re-invented church to milk the non-Christian religious reprobate. (serves them right) = And hey presto you get Mega-church a new comic hero for the masses of gullible fools who haven't a clue what the Bible really says.
Taxes?? What did Jesus say? Quote, "Whose mugshot is on this coin?" U/q. (paraphrasing). Or Matt 22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? 18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? 19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. 20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? 21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's."
Pay your taxes if you are a real Christian. Leave the arguements around mammon worship to the Liberals, Roman Catholics and other false witnesses.
