What should our perspective be about taxes?

Sometimes Christians get sidetracked from their central mission as God's stewards through illegitimate or secondary financial concerns. In my opinion, one example is the tax protest movement that now includes thousands of Christians across the country, many of whom use their church contacts to propagate their cause. Usually, they refuse to pay income tax, citing innumerable reasons why taxes are unjust and unconstitutional. They do this despite the fact that in a much more unjust society, Paul commanded the Roman Christians to obey their government and pay their taxes (Romans 13:1-7).

Stories came up that might not have over just a weekday dinner table.

 

No Hypocrites!

One of my goals in life is exactly the same as yours. I don’t want to be a hypocrite. Every day I want to shorten the distance between that which I process and that which I actually live. I want no gaps between my “talk” and my “walk.”

It’s why I’d like to repeat every day for the next month, this “Test for Self-Evaluation,” proposed by John Wesley.

Do you believe a person can be a practicing homosexual and be saved?

Do I believe a Christian can sin, and even live in sin for a time? Yes. Do I believe that a Christian can be disobedient to God? Of course. But I would say that homosexual relations are an abomination to God.

Do evangelicals dismiss the supernatural too easily?

Instead of assuming the authors are lying and are motivated only by money, we should address the specific portions that are unbiblical and warn people to trust the Scriptures as authoritative over these claims, in an Acts 17:11 manner.
