Obama Says Jesus Would Support Taxing the Rich

Don’t you just love it when Liberals turn to the Bible for support of their policies? How many times have you heard Liberals tell us that “Jesus never got mixed up in politics” or “We’re not supposed to Judge” or “You can’t impose your morality on other people” or “There’s a separation between church and state”? Liberal hypocrisy knows no bounds.

At the National Prayer Breakfast, the President said that as “a person who has been ‘extraordinarily blessed,’ he is willing to give up some of the tax breaks he enjoys because doing so makes economic, and religious sense.” Then why doesn’t he? No one’s stopping him from giving more money to the government if he wants to. Just do it and quit talking about it!

There is not a single word in the Bible that directs the State to confiscate money from the rich to enlarge the power and authority of civil government. Governments can’t follow the Golden Rule. Government doesn’t have any money to be gracious with. You can’t love your neighbor with someone else’s money. If I stole money from a rich person and gave it to a poor person, I would not be following the Golden Rule. President Obama wants to be benevolent with someone else’s money.

In biblical terms, the State is a minister of justice not a dispenser of benevolence (Rom. 13:1–4).

Jesus challenges the Rich Young Ruler to give his money to the poor not to Rome.

“Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, ‘One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me’” (Mark 10:21).

If the Roman government had taxed this young man and given his confiscated money to the poor, then what the man lacked would not have been challenged.

President Obama went on to say, “For me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that for unto whom much is given, much shall be required” (Luke 12:48).  Notice that Jesus did not say “much shall be required by the State.”

Jesus was a Jew. There was no income tax under the Old Covenant. A sign of civil tyranny was a ten percent tax (1 Sam. 8). Rome heavily taxed its citizens and subjects. Is the President saying that he’s a modern-day Caesar and our government is like that of Rome? He may not be saying it, but that’s what it’s become.

Gleaning is the closest thing the Bible comes to in requiring the prosperous to help the poor (Lev. 19:9-10; 23:22; Deut. 24:19-21.). But gleaning is hard work. The owners of fields, vineyards, or orchards were not required to harvest the leftover grain. If the poor wanted to eat, they had to work for it. Paul most likely had these passages in mind when he wrote to the Thessalonians, “Don't you remember the rule we had when we lived with you? ‘If you don't work, you don't eat’” (2 Thess. 3:10).

Wealth redistribution today is punitive; it’s about punishing the rich, not helping the poor. The rich don’t hoard their money. They loan it, invest it, and spend it. It’s these actions that help the less prosperous.

Government instituted poverty programs have only created more poor people, making them dependent on the State and less human.

    Obama is not part of the way of Christ, but the way of Cain. Obama is an evolutionist contradicting the words of Jesus: "Yet from the beginning of creation God makes them male and female" (Mark 10:6). Obama doesn't believe what Christ's chosen apostle to the nations, Paul, has to say about sodomy in Romans 1. Obama is not subject to the word of God, but makes his cherry picked words from it subject to him. Obama is a spiritual fraud. Someone needs to ask him when he stopped being a Marxist and started being a Christian.

      Obama wouldn't have any idea what Jesus would want. He's a frigging Muslim. What a jerk this POTUS is and he gets worse everytime he opens his mouth. Four more years of this Muslim and we're dead in the water. Mike Tanco

    • msbets

      This freak of nature doesn't have the right to speak of Jesus at ALL, If there is an anti-christ this pos is certainly it, I noticed he had trouble referencing the Bible, sounded tongue tied to me..........LMAO

      • Disgusted

        May he choke on his tongue every time he abuses the Word of God. May it be so with all of the soul-less frauds in our government fro the city levels on up. May that then lead to their seeing the reality of God in Christ Jesus and becoming believers leaving their evil dishonorable ways behind in pursuit of goodness.

    • tim

      it is about time some one tells it the way it is. 150% right

    • Clodmcgoo

      Good remarks Bowie, Also the Bible clearly gives the role of government in Romans. The government is to: 1. Protect it's citizens, 2. Praise it's citizens, 3. Punish the criminal. Every act of government must be with one of these three things.

    • Clodmcgoo

      He is not a spiritual fraud. There is nothing spiritual about him at all so that just makes him a fraud.

    • lawnorder

      Obama is a Christian in name only. His true belief is in the Muslim faith. He believes in Allah, not Jesus Christ. Therefore he is not qualified to tell us what Christ would do. After all, "Allah is great" right Barack?

    • LTCB

      Concur. You can't wrap yourself in just selected scriptures and burn the rest. His statement is one of those "lightning moments". That's one of those times someone says something so blasphemous that you move away from them in case that's when the lightning strikes them.

    • beatobama

      OBAMA is SATAN , OBAMA does not know JESUS !

      In this world where SATAN isKING until JESUS RETURNS, OBAMA and his kind RULE!

      • Lee

        Obama is the precursor to the Anti-Christ. He 'uses' the name of Jesus just like Lucifer did /does. Obama is no more Christian than the rocks in my driveway are! He's an abomination!

    • SpiderMike

      Anyone who sat in Trinity United Church of Christ, as Obama did for 20 years, cannot possibly be a Christian. They do not adhere to Holy Scripture but instead follow the black liberation theology (anti-capitalism and anti-white) espoused by James H. Cone. Visit their web site: http://www.utcc.org and google Black Liberation Theology by James H. Cone.

      Christians have Obama's number but nominal "christians" are clueless.

      GOD doesn't care about how we govern or did you not understand why we exist.GOD,JESUS cares about our souls and only cares for us to follow the ten commandments. i know there are statements about the poor and the rich haveing different challenges to heaven but GOD leaves our judgements up to our free will to follow the good or evil paths to seternity.futhermore one man salvation is not dependant on the salvation of all that is taught by satan through the teachings of muhammad tha mad man from hell.

  • screeminmeeme

    How ironic.
    The ANTI-CHRISTIAN, BIBLE-MOCKING, would-be ''Christian'', Obama, who is raging a not-so-subtile war on religion, is now, for political gain, CLOAKING HIMSELF in the Words of Christ. Amazing.

    Once again we see the duplicity, the political expediency, the wicked nature which drives every jot and tittle of Obama's campaign speeches. The would-be Christian is shameless.

    • JAZZMAN THOMAS

      YOURE RIGHT,THIS IS THE GUY THAT SAID AND I QUOTE "AMERICA IS NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION".SO NOW HE WANTS TOO CALL ON CHRIST. ALTHOUGH OUR LORD FORGIVES ,HE ALSO SAYS YOU CANT WORSHIP TWO MASTERS.I THINK ONCE AGAIN MR.PRESIDENT HAS HIS PRIORITIES MIXED UP AND IT SHOWS.

    • mickey

      Amen bro I now have hopes that others see this anti Christ for what he is. Keep informing the world on the truth.
      Obama telling the masses what Jesus thinks or would do is like Charles Manson giving counciling to our children.

    • zohiozgalz

      Sadly, he thinks we are all stupid and believe what he says! He took the words of Christ totally out of context! Plus, his actions tell me he's not a Christian anyway!

    • Sama

      He also promulgates the murder of "oopsie" babies. How Christian is that??
      He wouldn't want either of his daughters to be 'punished' with a baby!!! his words.
      So infanticide is OK by him!

      Obama , is an EVIL A PERSON TO EVER SIT IN OUR WHITEHOUSE.

    • Mike

      What do we expect from someone who attended Jeremiah Wright's Black Theolgy church which had the famous motto of God D - m n America? The chickens have come home to roost. The chickens are indeed coming home to roost on this usurper. In November, he can start packing his bags. Enough is enough.

    • Working American

      “a person who has been ‘extraordinarily blessed,’ he is willing to give up some of the tax breaks he enjoys because doing so makes economic, and religious sense.”

      Then why is not the pretending president spending his own money on his multi-million dollar vacations and shopping trips and 'dates"? Why is he sucking off the teat of the hard working middle class americans from whom most of the nation's money is extracted? If he were an exective in the private sector he would be required to pick up his employer paid vacations, trips and other million dollar fringe benefits in income and pay taxes on them. So, not only is he sucking up and wasting our tax dollars on himself and to reward his political supporters under the guise of "stimulating the economy", HE is not paying his fare share. We have to tighten our belts so that he can piss OUR money away. The Muslim doesn't sound Christian to me.

    • Homer Carnes

      And we will re-elect that phont, check mailing MOOOOOSLIM.

    • Ken

      Ah, that great theologian Barack Obama!

    • True Patriot

      Remember, Jesus turned over the tables of the money-changers in the Temple and took a whip to them. Obama forgot about that, didn't he? Unfair taxation is the same thing as "legal robbery." Chirst does not approve of this since the Fifth Commandment commands, "Thou Shalt Not Steal." Besides, Obama's liberal supporters have most of the money in this country. So, why doesn't he make them cough up their money and share it with the rest of us? Since he uses our tax money, against our will, to kill children in the womb and to promote homsexuality and same sex marriage in order to destroy the family, Jesus DOES NOT approve of him taxing who he calls "the rich." See website: http://www.haasstrep68.com

    • Lawrence

      Obama just confermed exactly what I have been saying, he is a muslim and not a Christian for his mouth and actions speak against him. I had a great belly laugh over this when I heard it. What an idiot he is.

    • Ardnas

      Jesus supports taking care of the poor out of the goodness of your heart. There is no challenge to the goodness of anyones heart when forced to give. And that is what taxes do. They force you to give. God's way is to follow the heart of a man not his wallet. It is where your heart is and not where your money is that makes the difference with God. To say that God would agree with Obama on how to part with ones money, is unbiblical and in fact nothing short of stealing. Just how much money to you naysayers give to charity? Does it match the 1% of Obama or is it 10% plus offerings as the bible dictates? Well, that is how you are to be judged, and not how much you give to the government.

  • Sarge

    Obuma won't be happy until he single handedly starts the Second American Revolution. If he wins, and he may, the first thing he will do is try to disarm us so we can't protect ourselves from him. He wants to weaken America to the point that his Muslim Brotherhood can start internal strife. 51% of Americans are stupid enough to sit there and watch it happen. America can't stand another 4 years of Obuma.

      Four years? If Yobama has his way, he will issue an Executive Order: 1) Abolish the Constitution. 2) Repeal the eight year limit. 3) Be a dicktator.

      Subject: Fwd: GEORGE SOROS BUYING UP GUN MANUFACTURERS

      http://beforeitsnews.com/story/1202/144/George_So...
      Subject: Who is buying companies making guns(Remington, Bushmaster,etc)???? For the last several years a company called The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers.Some of the companies are Bushmaster,Marlin,Remington,DPMS, Dakota Arms and H&R. Some people worry that this Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States . If you control the manufacturers you can decide to stop selling to civilians.What a perfect way to control guns. Now if you do somedigging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management. Guess who controls Cerberus??? GEORGE SOROS !!!!!!!!! One of the most evil men on this planet who wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns. Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends. This needs to come out.Why have we not heard about this in the "mainstream" media? I would think this would be BIG news.

    • Burns

      Amen to that. Four more years of this will seal the lid on the coffin of our country. "Taking" from the rich or anybody else is stealing. The "rich" left alone have the ability to spend and invest making opportunities for the rest of us.

    How would he know hes muslim so no belief in jesus

      Obama's belief is in fascism, com mun ism, Marx ism, and the others......he is not for Americans; never has been and never will be. It's about time people start waking from their fantasies and slumber....see reality. How much more proof do they need before they realize that this man is not on their side or on the side of their country?????

    • Sama

      I don't believe obama believes in Jesus. But that won't stop him from USING Jesus to influence believers!
      Pray for his conversion.

    • Joanne

      I heard the speach and for me the INTERESTING part was equated that statement with the muslims the same as the Christians in this area. The man is most frightening and between our schools and the news media our young people are not learning the true facts.

    The Mysery Man spends a lot ot time spouting nonsenical nonsense, like Jesus and I are marxist bros, so it be alright for me and my conniving kind to steal in the name of God...The boy is a bit ringy but it won't be long and we will have him in a government institution for the mentally impaired....how else do you explain this congenital liars syndrome.

      It seems you guys are much more interested in the fate of the banks, often manipulative institutions,
      and their supposed ownership of money more then you interested in the generosity of the spirit and
      the fairness that is Jesus' greatest teachings.
      We JEWS know what happens when people are being worked up by the lies told to conservative "patriots".
      We out lived Rome, the Inquisition, Hitler, and Stalin. We know how fear and hatred can be used to make
      lies seem like truth.
      You trust the loudest, most angry geese voiced spewers of hatred and desperation.
      HOW IS THIS CHRIST-LIKE?
      Jesus is the way for you guys to find G-d.

        They need to focus on , EDUCATION, PROTECTION and ABSTINANCE instead of aborting! Instead, LIBERALS are now focusing on teaching our children, starting in kindergarten, how to be gay, lesbian, transsexual, bi......this is nothing short of criminal and these people should be in JAIL, NOT indoctrinating our children! What about those teachers who passed out "fisting kits" to their students and took these same students to meet pedophiles for sex! Passing out phone and address books where these kids could hook up with these men? Sick and Shame, shame, shame on all of them!!! Absolutely disgusting and serioudly demented!

    • azwayne

      Send them to HELL.

    • NoCAGal

      And what would Jesus say to Pelosi using "insider trading", as well as, the rest of them? What would Jesus say to these pathological LIBERAL LIARS? What would Jesus say to allowing boys into girls bathrooms? What would Jesus say to giving Americans jobs for foreigners?.....we could go on forever....get the liberals out before they destroy your country. BTW, Liberals are Com munists, for those who aren't aware of it. They have taken over the Dem party just like they did Greenpeace, the EPA, and other organizations! Get your heads out of the sand...

      What would Obama know about the meaning of anything that Jesus said.? He is recorded and stated that the most beautiful sound to his ears was the Islamic call to worship. Get real Chairman Maobama.

      you nailed it!!!, now it's on to the vets and their jobs, this is all a ruse to get re-elected,that's the bottom line, and you can't tell me someone is not fudging the unemployment #'s, seems awfully suspicious that they are starting to fall just LIKE A MIRACLE!!!! I THINK THEY BE USING OVOMIT'S MATH.............2+2=10

  • Brama

    Too bad Obama misinterprets the text to mean that "required" means that its the possessions that are required and not stewardship. But then again, why should I believe that a man who thinks socialism is equal to charity. Also, notice Obama says that someone should be willing to give up his possessions, regardless of the fact that Obama doesn't want to give you the choice.

  • joe

    I agree with everything posted so far but answer this when church and state become friends???????????????????????

      This little man only uses the constitution and the bill of rights, when they favor him, otherwise the constitution and the bill of rights go out the window as being archaic, this cretin is a user and abuser, this cretin will combine church and state when it pleases. this little pos is really an insufferable animal!!

    • mickey

      They become friends when the Bible and truth are ignored and modified to fit our earthly desires and selfish greed.
      Im not talking about capitalism I mean anti Christ behavior and turning our backs on the word/Commands of Almighty God.

    • Mocha 10

      Your question makes not sense. "When Church and State become friends"? What is missing from the word "CH__CH"? Your Are (UR). Are you not friends with yourself? The way I believe is within me, the person. How do you take church out of yourself?

    • Mike

      The Catholics are not too happy with him now. Perhaps a few of them are having voters remorse.

      • Patriot

        And well they should, Mike. It was disgraceful that 52% of them voted for this POTUS knowing full well he was pro choice. After all, as a senator he voted to allow partial birth abortion till the ninth month and refused to give care to any child born alive. I believe they did so because they wanted to be politically correct. But then, so, too, did Protestants, Jews, atheists, agnostics, Independents, etc. Following the politically correct rhetoric has brought our country to the precipice it faces. I believe worse is to come.

  • http://web.mac.com/stankerns Stan Kerns

    Actually it was Caesar Augustus that said "The whole world should be taxed"--and then it was Jesus who said "Give unto Caesar what is Caesar's" Caesar Agustus actually had three "Taxings" one in 26BC, another in 8BC, and a final one in 14 AD
    So, I guess, Jesus is on record saying pay your taxes--which the rich certainly avoid doing.

    • dntmkmecomoverther

      Oh, give it a rest moron. I am not rich by any means and the government takes (confiscates) 56% of my income every year. Then on top of that, I get to pay sales tax, excise tax, fuel tax, hunting / fishing license tax, weapons permit tax, car tag tax, airline ticket tax, public park use fees, boat ramp fees, boat registration tax and the list goes on!

      I don't mind paying for a portion of the 'pie', but I detest paying for the whole thing, and then being told my YOU that I don't pay my fair share. hell, if I didn't take some deductions, they would confiscate nearly 75% of my income in fees and taxes! That's criminal in any land!

    • http://libertyphysics.wordpress.com LibertyPhysics

      The rich avoid paying their taxes? Not paying your taxes is a crime. So, how, exactly, do the rich avoid paying their taxes? I could use a few hints myself.

      Considering that the bottom 50% of income earners pay no income taxes and the top few percent pay almost the whole of the individual tax burden I think you don't have the slightest idea of what you are talking about.

      • kibitzer3

        "47% of those earning $250,000 (or more) paid zero taxes during one recent year." Quote from newsmax today. There's a book on the subject, of how to avoid paying taxes, if you know the right loopholes, that 'the rich' pay good money to have their advisors let them know about, and take advantage of. Just setting the record straight.

        As for spirituality and taxes, I have just one comment to make: Charity is a virtue.

        So there's two sides to every coin.

        • Vince

          Charity is NOT done with other people's money. And you are right, GE earned $5B US last year and did not pay ANY tax!!

        • ConcernedGeorgian

          How much tax do all these egotistical, overpaid, over-rated athletes pay. I never and I mean never hear anyone complaining about all the millions of dollars they are paid.

        • ConcernedGeorgian

          Charity is a virtue. I will choose the charities I believe in and want to contribute time and money to. I do not want the government taking the money that I have worked hard for, paid taxes on, invested and am having to pay more taxes on. We are far, far from rich, but we planned well and invested wisely.....so we are to be punished for that????

        • kibitzer3

          I hope you all, who have commented on this sub-thread, understand that that is precisely what I meant. Charity is a virtue. There is no virtue in taking money from some and giving it to others. The "two sides to every coin" was in reference to the fact that the wealthy often take from/take advantage of the 'system' and don't give back a fair return on their gains from it, which has involved the 'sweat equity' of many others. I think of the bankers pocketing the money of the taxpayers in bonuses, and not lending to Main Street back the money that Main Street was forced to bail them out with. What arrogance. There needs to be an attitude of giving in life in order to receive fairly.

          Actually, the whole interest-bearing money system itself needs to go, and The People need to evolve into a level of consciousness wherein we share our goods and services with one another, and give of our best in the process, out of a higher motive than the one of (personal) 'profit' - out of the highest motive possible: Out of gratitude to our Creator for life with meaning. And then the 'money' means-having-become-the-end issue is out of the way, and what is left is brothers and sisters living in community with one another. In common unity. In communion. But that's getting into another matter. The point is, 'money' is separating us. We should be drawing closer together, in spirit.

          As we may be forced to do, any day/week/month now, out of Necessity, with the collapse of the established order of things, that contains the seeds of its own destruction, for not being based on Truth. The Truth that We Are One. And there is Plan in and Purpose to life. That 'life' is not just in and for itself only. What a meager vision that is.

    • wisdomcries

      Perhaps you grasp history but you lack spiritual discernment as evidenced by your interpretation of the passage.
      Using the whole premise of the chapter and the history of the Pharisees might help you.

    • Gordon

      I beg to differ with you Stan. The exact quote comes from Matthew 22:21 and says "Render therefore the things to Caesar that are Caesar's". But, if you examine Matthew Henry's commentary on this matter you will find an exact opposite meaning of what you described. He says: "it does not say 'Give it to him'" But what it does mean is "Restore". Or better put "If Caesar fills your purses than let Caesar command you" Jesus makes a very distinct separation of responsibility as to allegiance to government versus God. According to your mis-application it would mean that government can call itself god and set the boundaries anywhere it wants and we must silently sit by and subject ourselves to that. No! Romans 13:1-7 very clearly defines the responsibilities of the government. It is not to strip people of what they have worked for, but to protect good people from evil. Now, what is evil? Since that series of verses also states that God places these people in power, right and evil should be defined in God's terms not mans.

          Go to http://www.michaelsheiser.com/ This man knows the Bible inside and out. Here are two partial reviews of his fictional book "The Facade" which is actually based on facts.

          5.0 out of 5 stars First novel I've used as reference book
          "Dr. Mike Heiser holds a Ph.D. in Biblical Hebrew and Ancient Semitic Languages, as well as masters degrees in Hebrew and Semitic Studies and Ancient History (Israel, Egypt). He's a Bible-believing Christian-and a believer in UFO phenomena. That's the kicker. Mike is one of very few Christians who isn't afraid to fit ETs and UFOs into a Christian worldview... "

          "Though the book shows some of the deficiencies of self-publication, The Facade has to be one of the most perspective-changing stories I have ever read. If you can ignore the fact that ninety percent of the action takes the form of a meeting during which opposing viewpoints are bantered back and forth, the real scholarly work shines through and grabs you by the eyes...

    • Melody

      How about this....... democrats and liberals give their money and let them be taxed for everything so they can support their liberal causes.... and leave conservatives out of it. Liberals are theifs.... they don't have anything.... and don't want anybody else to have anything as well, so they resort to theivery.

      • NoCAGal

        Oh NO! Many liberals are loaded and super rich! They use their money to destroy this country along with their bed fellow Obumma! Let's ask Pelosi how much she gives to the needy. There was a recent article on the rich and how much they donated. The Dems were the worst and gave very little, if anything. The others were much more generous!

      Well, when Caesar shows up, i'll pay 'em.

    • Old pilot

      Mr. Kerns, there are some folks that do not pay taxes. I do not know any of them personally. I do know What many of you might call "Rich" that pay a lot of income taxes. I will not stae a figure but is is much more than the average annual wage for many people. Do I like it,no I do not. I employe people, started my own company, provide health insurance, sick leave, paid vacation time and many other benefits and worked my ass off and struggled for many years getting my business going. So maybe you should re-think your statement of "the rich avoid paying taxes"!

      • happymomto3

        Couldn't agree more...we are business owners, work our tails off, took a risk to start a business and pay over twice the average yearly salary in income taxes alone. Add in all of the wonderful business and operating taxes and we are talking about a pretty chunk of change. I am sooo tired of the class warfare against the so called rich. When did it become our responsibility to pay such a large amount in taxes to the federal government because we make more? How about everyone paying their fare share. I'm tired of funding all of the handouts to those not willing to work or contribute!

    • Jay O'Conner

      Nice spin. You obviously did not read the entire quote within the context of the teaching. Also, try avoid misquoting the Bible it's blasphemy. Your stupidity and ignorance shows. You misquote your fantasy world facts. They actually pay 90% of all taxes. Rich people actually create the companies, take the risks and employ people here in the USA as long as the Government doesn't run them over seas. When has a poor person ever created a company or job....if they did then they became rich, which is why you live in America. Government "taking care" of people has NEVER worked and will NEVER work. It's called dictatorship, something our Country has fought many wars and sacrificed many lives to help keep people free. But you wouldn't have the slightest appreciation for any of that. You must be a 1 percenter.........mentally.

    • Mike

      Along with 47% of the country who pay 0 federal taxes.

    • NoCAGal

      I imagine that the rich are paying YOUR taxes, too, just by your statement, Stan. The rich pay the majority of taxes in the U.S. PLUS support many other causes which you are obviously ignorant about. What amount of taxes are you paying Stan? Just curious......

    • george

      Stan, I'm quite sure you do not claim any exemptions when you file, right? You do not deduct your chartible gifts, do not deduct anything period. I, on the other hand, making well into the six-figure bracket (yes, a robber-baron), contribute to the employment of a tax-preparer (I guess, I'm enslaving/exploiting her) by having her take advantage for me of every available deduction. The money that I do not give to Ceasar allows me to purchase items and services... all of which in turn contributes to the continued employment and financial advantage of those who receive the dollars I spend. I should be drawn, quartered and guillotined. You should have studied harder, disciplined yourself, invested your extra dollars here and there... and re-examined the teachings of the Christ.

    • Bird

      Remember who creates the jobs that we have. Men and women who have worked hard to get to that point have turned around and created jobs for you and me. We can tax all the rich the amount that Obama wants to but it will not even dent the National debt. Guess who is paying that? When taxes go up on merchandise the business do not donate that. You are paying the increase, not the business. When there is an increase cost in goods, the consumer pays so remember that. It is easy to say, lets make the rich pay more. Ever put to paper just how much they do pay?

    • christin

      didnt jesus mean give nothing because nothing is caesars?

    • Brenda

      You have no idea what you are talking about. The rich pay more than their fair share. By the time my husband gets his paycheck, 50% of it is gone to taxes. Do you pay 50%??

      He took it out of context. It is in Luke 11:48 and it is not about money but the calling to serve the Lord. It is a special honor to have this calling that is what is considered to be "much."

    • Woolfy

      Well, actually Jesus did. He was referencing the coin with Caesar's image on it when he spoke those words. Any other financial gain a man made other than the coins was not subject to Ceasar's taxing. FYI

      As disciples traveled tax collectors were the worst people they dealt with, still true today. He threw the money changers out of the temple, good example, Jesus won't use marxist muslim ODUMBO to spread his teachings and commandments. ODUMBO is now guilty of blasphemy.His days in HELL will be many. But Holder will be there before him, they can be reunited.

  • William Shipley

    That's commonly quoted by the left, but they are completely missing the point of Jesus's teaching. The teaching that it is good for your soul to give to the poor is focused on your soul, and the benefit to you of being generous. If you take the money by taxation you rob the person of the benefit that comes from giving.

    I'm getting really tired of people trying to demonstrate their moral superiority by taking my stuff and giving it to others. If they want to demonstrate their morality, they should give THEIR stuff to others -- that's what Jesus taught.

  • CPT

    Obama is evil! He is a wolf in sheep's clothing! He wouldn't have had this chance if evil hadn't taken over the minds and souls of so many people already. Our society has been on a decline for so long, but then he came and just like the devil, people were fascinated with him because of the way he spoke and and led people to believe that what they wanted was the way it is supposed to be just as Satan did at the Garden to Eve. The only thing that spews out his mouth is smooth talking evil vomit and the sad thing is that the majority of the people do not see it or hear it because of the selfishness that lies in them. Jesus said: Repent! For the Kingdom of God is at Hand! Here it is people. The Final Judgement is Here!!

    Their hubris, whereby their actions are generally in complete contradiction to the laws of God, to their words of animosity towards the morals that are commanded by God, to the outright mockery of God, suddenly want to tell us all about the Bible, which they have no desire to follow and mostly despise.

    • Jill Maine

      Actually it's tithes and offereings. God doesn't limit us but he doesn't steal from us either. We give were we are lead to give not forced to give especially to charlatans like this creep that waste it.

      Yes , oldtimer, it's called selective memory ! The inconvenient truth is that all anti poverty programs instituted by politicians are designed to buy votes ; that has resulted in an entitlement culture that is destroying this Nation . We are now at the point where half the Country pays no federal taxes ; now Obama says that the half that ARE paying the bills are " not paying heir fair share "! How much s fair ? I guess he will not be satisfied until the rich become poor ! That will be the end of all things . He learned all about " social justice " from Reverend Wright ; Wright in turn got the concept from Liberation Theology which was imported from South America . This is just a modern brand of Marxism , nothing more or less !

    Are his speech writers trying to convice the American Public that he is a Christian now? Give me a break. Many times he has quoted from the Quran, the book of muslum, not the Holy Bible for Christians. He was brought up as a Muslum which condemns Christianity. He might have told the speech writers he talked with God, but it was probably the Devil he was communicating with. Until he changes his ways, I don't think he waste much time praying to God, he's too busy praising himself on what he's accomplished.

    This is a great idea. Lets start with Warren Buffet and George Soros. Obama can take their money and re-distribute it to the "poor." Oh my! I must have forgotten that Obama's rich friends are exempt from anything that involves giving their money away. They only want to use other people's money for their own enrichment. It's funny that Obama says that Jesus would support taxing the rich when Jesus was the one who drove the "tax collectors" from the temple. Obama needs to fire his government biblical advisor czars.

  • Jill Maine

    Obama got this verse completely wrong as usual. I guess he let the Bible flop open and treated it like a buffet. This verse is not talking about money or wealth. This verse is to those who feel a calling to be a spiritual leader or preacher. That is a special and unique gift from God and if he gives that to you, you are expected to do it to the utmost of your spirit lead ability. It's all about your relationship with the Lord and how you represent him. It has nothing to do with money. You will be held accountable. Obama ought to read the verse in Mark 9:42 which says " And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it woukld be better for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck, and he were cast into the sea." My car is more of a Christian than he is. He is totally offensive to me. God will judge him and he better watch out.

  • Beatrice

    If Obama beleives in sin; he would have a sin for saying this. This is "dirty pool" to bring Jesus into this. Many poor, middle class, and rich people give to charity. It is the charity of their choice and they give what they feel they can afford. A person making $20,000.00 may give $500.00 and a person making millions such as Bill Gates gives millions of his money to charity. Obama should re-educate on what is expected of man.

  • http://advocates-wvox.com Rjgarfunkel

    He has his right to express his opinion on the Scriptures as anyone on this site. It is an perspective on the words of Jesus, as related by the Gospels, that President believes. Relating the "income tax" to Rome or anywhere else is specious. To continue to make accusations about what he believes defies his own words. He calls himself a Christian, he goes to a Christian Church , he raises his children as Christians and he lives a life of decency. What else should be expected?

    • Jill Maine

      Being the biggest baby killing president of the world not just the USA is a sin. He doesn't go to church now and if the one he used to go to was any good he wouldn't screw up the scriptures., And the Bible is not open to the whims of those who read it. It is clear and it explains itself. That's what all the cross refernces are about. The Bible also says whoever adds to or takes away from this Book is in danger of hell fire.

    Attributing ANY attitude, opinion or action to Jesus, who is God the Son, other than what we are told in the bible is a violation of the 3rd commandment.

  • maddoglgtx

    the charges levied against Jesus before he was crucified can be found in Luke 23:2 ...He opposes the payment of taxes...Now, if Oblahblah had any notion of what is written in scripture he would never had made such a claim. Jesus also said ...render unto Ceasar what is his and God's what is His. Read Matt 18. I haven't noticed BHO's likeness or inscription on any coins to be rendered ...so I am not paying! The idea that the government thinks it is entitled to ANY portion of a man's wages is beyond my ability to grasp! We need a consumption tax, which I have no problem with. Then the amount I pay is clearly my decision, based upon my purchases!

      I somehow seriously doubt that your comment was deleted as a act of censoring your opinion. There are policies here about use and acceptable speech and treatment of others. I have seen people disagree with the article, comments, etc, and do so in a moderately respectful manner, and have no problem. Besides, with this being a privately owned and operated system, you really have no rights but what the owner/moderator chooses to give. Means you have no right to speech here just because you disagree, but I've never seen them delete a comment simply for disagreeing. I've seen it for vile and offensive language, personal attacks, etc, but not a polite, simple (or well-reasoned) disagreement.

    Obama's statement that Jesus would approve higher taxes is just as asinine as his interpretation of the Constitution. We know he can read cause he has to read his teleprompter at all times. I guess he is too stupid to understand clear and unambiguous words or he is a liar, maybe both.....

    Actually the account in Matthew 18:15-18 would show Obama the way to treat a close friendbrother if he committed a harm against you and was unrepentant, "... treat him as a heathen and a publican." Interesting here to note that the categorization as a non believer and tax collector were equivalent. That is right folks tax collectors, "Publicans", are no better than non believers.

    I Kings Chapters 10-12 record the first tax revolt that ended up getting the tax collector stoned to death and the king run off to a walled and fortified city in fear for his life. Israel literally divided into the northern and southern kingdoms. The amount of tax-or tribute as the words say in the King James version-was 666 talents of gold. How about that number????

    No sir no political speech there-but Jesus was one of the most outspoken of the political system in his day, except for maybe John the Baptist-cause they would loose the IRS benefit-501, 3 C- so they will keep telling you to render unto Caesar-although there is no Caesar in the country. I guess the Christian beliefs of the Founders didn't include render unto Caesar either or we would be a British Colony still and paying taxes to them.

  • Lois MacLaren

    I have heard liberals quote Mark 10:21, and then expound on that subject as if they believe that the advice which Jesus gave to that particular rich young ruler was the advice which Jesus gave to EVERYONE. Actually, the Biblical record indicates that Jesus gave this advice ONLY once - and ONLY to this particular ruler. Of more interest is the encounter between Jesus and the Publican, Zacchaeus, which is recorded in Luke 19:1-10. Zacchaeus was in the BUSINESS of COLLECTING TAXES! If Jesus EVER had an opportunity to come right out and say that he was in favor of collecting more taxes from the rich in order to help take care of the poor, Jesus most certainly would have said that to Zacchaeus. Jesus could have said: Zacchaeus, you should collect more taxes from the rich, and hope that, after you send that money to the Central Government in Rome, the Government in Rome will eventually get around to sharing that tax money with the poor. INSTEAD, when Zacchaeus had decided to follow Jesus - Zacchaeus merely promised to RETURN money to people whom he had swindled by collecting TOO MUCH money from them in taxes. Wouldn't you just love it if someone from the IRS suddenly turned up on your doorstep and said to you: "You know what - years ago, I swindled you by claiming that you owed more taxes than you really did - then I pocketed the extra amount for myself So, without anyone in any court anywhere demanding that I do this, I am voluntarily paying back TO YOU all of the extra taxes which I took from you - plus four times the amount which I took. For every $100 I took from you, I am paying you back $400! " THEN after Zacchaeus was finished paying back all of the people whom he had swindled by taking TOO much money from them for their taxes, Zacchaeus VOLUNTARILY decided to give HALF of everything which he had left - to the poor. In other words, Zacchaeus did not decide to give half of everything which he had left to the Roman government , which was occupying Judea at that time, and then HOPE that the Roman government would eventually make sure that the money reached the poor. What Zacchaeus did was go right out to the poor people themselves and make sure that the poor folks really WERE receiving the money which Zacchaeus was giving to the poor. In Luke 3, there is also a record of tax collectors (Publicans), and soldiers, coming to John the Baptist and asking John what they should do to prepare for the coming kingdom. Of course, the most important element of John's advice to the publicans and soldiers is that John did NOT tell them to leave their jobs. "Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do? And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you. And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages." -- Luke 3:12-14. Of course, what is MOST interesting about the way that liberals quote from Mark 10 about the rich young ruler is that liberals like to pretend that the FIRST part of that particular chapter does NOT exist. In the FIRST part of Mark 10, Jesus discusses the importance of marriage in the Heavenly Father's plans and concludes by saying: "What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." -- Luke 10:9. If only Liberals would become as enthused about reading the FIRST HALF of Mark 10 as they have become about focusing on the encounter which Jesus had with this particular rich young ruler, we might actually begin making some sort of progress as a nation!

    Until those who are amongst the "other 99%" but who rely on "PULPIT POLITICS" to do their thinking for them, stop and start thinking for themselves, this country is doomed. We have bred a 'middle earth' mid-country mass of religious conservatives who don't believe in birth control and irresponsibly procreate [they can't really afford to raise all those kids] and then abdicate their responsibility to think for themselves and vote along the party lines urged from their "pulpits" and wonder why this country is going to hell. WAKE UP MIDDLE AMERICA! The only one's who can afford the kind of lawyers and accountants who are geared up to find and exploit and tweak every tax loophole, are the other 1% who control most of the $$$ and they, have been undermining our economy for decades for their own self-interest. But middle America always votes republic, regardless of the obvious consequences to them, and why??? Because the "bible" tells them to? It is time for our US Supreme Court to yank the non-profit status of religious institutions that preach political strategy. WAKE UP! America, and use your collective noodle!

    Compulsory Redistribution of Wealth? That's Communism. Christian communism as described in the book of Acts was VOLUNTARY and only applied to the Christian community! Obama should know that...that is if he is really a disciple of Jesus Christ.

    Speaking of redistribution of wealth, the Christian and Missionary Alliance, Assemblies of God, and Episcopal church has turned this into a science and lawsuits against their brothers and sisters in Christ in order to confiscated their wealth (really their poverty) and redistribute it to their own agenda as proven in recent filmed documentary "Making Merchandise of Men's Souls"

    • Reader

      Pro-communists LOVE pointing at Acts to support communism. You are absolutely right that it was voluntary and applied to the Christian community, but you neglect perhaps one of the most important details surrounding that story, and they certainly hate the thought of quoting it. Acts, in the Christian community, voluntarily sharing all, totally AFFIRMS private property rights. See, they stop at Acts 4:37, and ignore Acts 5. Readers digest version: A couple owns some possession. They sell it. They give PART of the money under the pretense of it being all the money. They get caught out in the lie. What is said? While you had it, wasn't it yours? And when you sold it, didn't you control the money? (paraphrases, I know.) Reading the whole passage makes it very clear that they had the moral right to their private property, that they had the moral right to the money from selling their property, and that they could do with that money what they wanted. What got them in trouble (caused their deaths, actually, how's that for trouble?) was lying by misrepresenting their donation as the whole amount given. No, it wasn't because they kept some back. It was because they did while claiming they didn't. The Bible teaches generosity, giving, and sharing, but it also teaches such should be voluntary. It affirms over and over again private property rights. (If it did not matter that giving was voluntary, or the Bible says we have or should have no personal, private property rights, there would have been no commandment against stealing, too.)

  • Doodlebug

    I don't see Jesus involved in ANY worldly things from what I read in my Bible. I don't know what Bible obummer reads if any. I strongly doubt that Jesus would have anything to do with taxes other than to pay them if He owed taxes. I really don't think He would tell us to give more than what we owe to the government to do whatever the government chose to do with them. Yes, we should be caring people and, if we can, it is a Christian thing to give to those who have less. However, I don't find anywhere where you MUST give to the government to use as they see fit. I help to support a Christian child in another country but that is my choice. If anyone can tell what Bible obummer uses, please let me know as I would like to have a better insight to how he governs. Not like Jesus would in my humble opinion.

    Does OBAMA think we're really stupid? Maybe so because that's how he won the election. Never has anyone divided our country like this president. We need to make sure to get out and vote in November! His arrogance is unbelievable.

  • Stan

    Obviously obama knows nothing about Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD, who would never go against his Fathers' Commandments. GOD issued this commandment which covers obama's lust over the wealth of others:
    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

  • Eli Jones

    Although Obama was born in Kenya, he was raised as a Sunni Muslim in Indonesia. Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim plant, sent by the king of Saudi Arabia to weaken us, and to destroy our relationship with Israel. Simultaneously, Obama has cooperated with the most radical of Muslims to replace several Muslim nation's governments with more radical jihad governments. Obama is surrounding Israel with these hostile Muslim nations governed by "The Muslim Brotherhood" and "Al Qaeda". That is Obama's Muslim mission. Will Obama succeed? The 11-6-12 general election will reveal that answer. If Obama is re-elected, it will be the point of no return. If Obama and his Fascist Democrats are ousted, our Republic may well be saved. Click on the site below and watch Hussein Obama bow to his Sunni Muslim king of Saudi Arabia.

    Jesus tells us to "Render therefore unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's." (Mat 22:21). Sorry Mr. President, you are not God. Besides, there are a lot of "rich" folk who donate more to charities of their choice than we could fathom. As an example, look at a list of entertainers and who the give their money/time to or who they do charitable concerts/public events for.

    Don't every body find it strange the closer it comes to election,the jobs will open up ,He became a Christian(does any body believe that?) Last year he was praising Alla and admitted he was a muslim this year he has changed to a Christian, If he would go to China he would be a buddhist.
    It scares me to think people can still think he is not a LIAR.
    some PEOPLE VOTE FOR HIM THERE TO LAZY TO CHECK, SOME ARE SOCIALIST AND SOME VOTE FOR ANY ONE THAT IS RUNNING ON A DEM. TICKET. Now these people come under the heading of just being plan STUPID, and don't understand Socialism.
    Now that wouldn't bother me for the types I mention if there action just effected them .BUT it will hurt a lot of innocent people and children.
    When they have to live a life of what Hitler put the Germans through.they will deserve it but we don't.
    Now you will see blood in the streets of America that once knew freedom that when barack becomes a dictator of what once was a country every body looked up to will no longer be.
    May GOD have mercy on all that didn't listen.

    I don't see Obummer as a man that knows his Bible, #1 The man follows the teachings of the Muslim faith and throws sayings from the Koran every chance he gets and there has been quite a few chances. #2 He doesn't know anything about the Bible accept what Rev. Wright spouts out about hate for the whites. #3 The jerk RESIDENT has brought into this country more Muslims from around the world than all the other Presidents put together and all you have to do is look at the state of Washington and Oregon, they are living in vacant houses at the cost of American tax money. #4 Ithink that if we were attacked by another Muslim group that Obummer would do nothing but turn his tell and run.

    Obama can get a Bible with red highlites or a computer program with all of the words of Jesus and even use government employees to study what Jesus said and he will never find any mention of taxing the rich or anyone else,his mission here was to give his life for us and to spread the word about his Heavenly home,,it would do Obama good to learn about Jesus,it would change his life and he would stop trying to destroy America and remember to stop trying to force the Catholics to use birth control,which is against their beliefs,but until that happens Americans look at Obama as a lier and he's only trying to get votes by falsly claiming to be a Christian...

  • NavyBugchaser

    Jesus stated, when Mary Magdalene anointed him with the expensive oil from an expensive alabaster jar and was criticized for "wasting this expensive perfume which could have been sold for a lot of money to be given to the poor, that they should leave her alone as she was doing something very important and besides the poor will be with us always and you can help them any time you would like. The only reason that the Rich Young Ruler was being spotlighted by Christ wasn't because he was rich, but because he relied on his wealth instead of relying and surrendering to GOD. GOD doesn't have anything against people of wealth, look at David and Solomon, but HE has a problem when money becomes one's god. GOD will not allow anything to take first place away from HIM, including wealth.

    • Reader

      God has blessed many, many righteous (and also wicked) men and women with wealth. He never condemned people for being rich. He made Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Job, David, Solomon, and many, many more insanely rich. For crying out loud, He prospered Israel so totally that gold was common, and silver was so common it was considered without value. That is a LOT of wealth for the special people of God if God hates wealth.

      One line from the anointing of Jesus' feet that the liberals ALWAYS miss, but you mentioned:

      You will always have the poor with you.

      Think about that. No matter what we do, we will never end poverty. I'm not saying we shouldn't do what we can to help, but there can never be a realistic expectation of ending poverty. That said, we need to be cautious of politicians promoting how we could end poverty by just spending a bit more of other people's money. Any attempt to end poverty, either privately or with government assistance will fail. We can, and should, help the poor, but we will never end the blight of poverty.

  • NavyBugchaser

    GOD is pleased when one holds lightly to their possessions and are willing to surrender them back to HIM, for after all everything we have and everything that exists belongs to HIM. Now the question I would like Obama and the liberal gang expains what the Apostle Paul stated in Corinthians. Paul stated if people would not work, then they shall not eat. In other words, contrary to the liberal/democrat position, people who refuse to work and pull their weight aren't suppose to live like a leech off the efforts of others. No re-distribution of wealth and forcing the labor to support the sloth. Every person is to work for their daily bread, unless physically incapable of working. Ususally, this would be mainly children and widows, though this would probably also include the physically and mentally handicapped persons as well. But all able bodied individuals are to earn their daily bread and not expect that the government should force the workers to give up money to support them.

  • richbrat

    Well the Old Testament said the wealthy oppress the poor (although it's not a commandment) and he told the rich man if he would be perfect, to go give all he had to the poor and follow him. (What, you mean the rich aren't already perfect?) Jesus also said, "Pay the tax." He didn't encourage the Romans to take care of the poor because we all know what good that would have done, Jesus was preaching to believers, which is in a sense, an experiment, on the part of individuals, to find out. Once a person has acquired knowledge and experience, they become "knowers," which goes beyond mere ...belief. But really it's your hard-heartedness that would cause you to even ask the question with such sarcasm. The jobs have left. The rich have been rewarded with lower taxes and they still invest in communist Red China, who still have execution buses, remove organs from dissidents, and reprocess the skin of prison maidens to be ingredients of beauty products sold into commerce. Why do you pay taxes? The rich don't. They hire high-priced accountants. Their definition of freedom is to not be held socially responsible in any sense. The point of technology is to create more leisure, for everyone. Tractors and robots mean fewer people need to work, fewer jobs. Do you want to create unnecessary jobs just so people can live down to your paleolthic value system? Anyway, no, not every dollar printed was predestined for your pocket, and no, not every dollar a person holds in their pocket was taken from you. But if you want to talk about theft, look at the banks who benefitted from Bernancke's QE. As for the poor, they will always be with you, given how little you've done to help them yourselves, with any more than a political club.

    I just love it when I hear these Marxist "preach" Jesus, when they feel it serves their purposes, while the rest of the time they mock Christians for "clinging to our GUNS AND OUR GOD!" I have to laugh when I hear a Liberal democrat say "that if Jesus were alive today, he'd be a Liberal!" Really? Let's explore some of the positions of the Liberal Democrats. Do liberal democrats support abortion? Yes. So, do you think Jesus would agree with the mrder of unborn babies? When would you suppose that Jesus would say is the moment life begins? Liberal democrats are leading the fight to make homosexuals, "the norm", teaching that it is OK to be gay or lesbian. What do you think Jesus's position would be on the practice of gay and lesbian sexual encounters?

  • D Rash

    CONTINUING...
    Taxing the rich is one thing. But do you think Jesus would ever agree that the forced confiscation of 45, 55, 65 or 70% of someones wages is OK? I think Jesus would recognize "legalized theft" when he saw it. Would Jesus feed the hungry and the poor? Absolutely! But, do you think Jesus would feel like feeding the same poor and hungry, if he knew that those poor and hungry folks had been "poor and hungry" in some cases for 5 generations? There is a difference in "Poor and hungry" and habitually LAZY! So, next time someone tells you that Jesus, if alive today, would be a liberal, you can point out to them that, that is probably not the case.

How many times has this man went to a christian church in the lst 3 years? Three or four. He's a musline who tells him he can lie to get his way if that what it takes. I feel sorry for the black people who voted for him just because he was black. Most of them believe in God and are conservatives, but because of history they want a black man to represent them. He's the wrong one.. I'm white a was a great supporter of Hermain Cain who is blacker than Obama ever was. He loves our country and I hope black people wake up soon. This is their country who gives them freedom and Obama will kill it.

    There are those of us who are thinking to the later part of this year when the heat from the upcoming election is mounting, as recent as mid-summer, and there is some doubt of the future self-appointed Emperor-In-Office. Van Jones will enter as Holder steps down to take the role of Attorney-General because he has more of the stomach to order troops out to quell the civic unrest, Obama instigated un-rest, to clarify and to be able to declare Martial Law, at which time Obama will have declared a State of Emergency and we will all be “locked down.” The ballot boxes will be turned into field toilets w/o water just a modicum of privacy which we will never need again, because you will see people taken off the streets and never seen again. If you are a bible believing Christian and hold firm to your belief you will be rewarded shortly. Hold strong to your Faith and know that there is only one way to Eternal salvation and that is through Jesus Christ, who died and rose again from the dead becoming victorious over Death and the devil. These are all to be taken from the stupid book from Obama's father, "Dreams From My Father."

    I am 61 year old. Although I am now long removed from my childhood growing up on a 100-acre farm in eastern Iowa, I still remember how after my father had picked the corn using a mechanical single row corn picker, that he and I would spend a lot of time walking the picked rows carrying a bucket. We would glean the remaining corn from the downed stalks and dump our filled pails into piles. We later went through the fields with a wagon and picked up the piles of corn. I remember thinking how hard and slow that work was. It was a great experience in developing a work ethic that has served me well throughout my life.

  • Thomas B

    I want to ask obama if Jesus would say abortion is fine with Him. Also is gay marriage and homosexual sex fine with Him. I believe obam will say Jesus would say everything obama supports and does is fine with Jesus. And because obama is now an open dictator, we must of course believe the new rewritiing of the Bible according to the obama. The next step will be that the obama will inform us that Jesus is handing over His job to the obama and then obama will burn all their Bibles. I'm absolutely convinced that the obama will out do Stalin if left unchecked.

  • John Baker

  • what a joke

    Ever read your Bible ? The Old Testament was under the Jewish Law of The Year of Jubilee. Every 50 years the Rich had to return everything to ones they bought it from. Yes, Redistribution of wealth to keep the playing field even. God knows the true nature of man and it needs to be corrected pretty often.

  • Blair Franconia, NH

    The only thing Jesus had to say about taxation was the following: "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's and render unto
    God the things that are God's." He said nothing about the redistribution of wealth. That's liberation theology, which Pope Benedict
    XVI denounced when he was a Vatican official in the '80s.

    The 'one' who occupies says a lot of things, it's clear, Jesus was not or is not a socialist. Always in the past the Church took care of 'these' situations, Jesus did not believe in wealth transfer, Satan does, it's the only way to get massive amounts of $$ transfered into the hands of 'those' that love plunder, these funds never go to 'those' in need, they might get a penny to every $1000 but even that might be a stretch! The Lord promises that He'll deal w/these crooks, woe, woe unto them, they'll laugh and mock but 'that' day will always, always come. Folk's, according to my Bible it really looks as this is the season, the Lord has been slow to anger, the Cup of the Great Wine of His Fury Rev:16 will be upon them way to soon. The Lord knew, long before the 'foundations' were laid, that this time of the age is our time, we are His Ambassador's, lets do our jobs well?!

If this piece of crap is valid, doesn't the Bible say that homosexuality is wrong? Shouldn't Barry ban that too? Hmm? How does his new thinking square with telling Catholics their conscience doesn't matter? HMM?

    What does he know about Jesus and what Jesus would want? He is NOT a Christian. There was a you tube in which he said "I am a Muslim I was born in Kenya and when he referred to the Koran; he pronounced it Kohrahn. That you tube can no longer be accessed. At least I can't get it any more. It was probably pulled off line. I read where he recently took 660 (at that time) emails about him off line.

    Obama loved to miscite the Bible in his speech, but he should have recalled another quote from Jesus,"Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the thing that are God's." I'm still looking for the chapter and verse that says, "Render to Barack the things that are John's."

  • ceejay

    Obama claims to be CHRISTIAN when it is convenient for him - like running for re - election . Don't forget he canceled the DAY OF PRAYER last year and few weeks later he celebrated RAMADAN with his fellow MUSLIMS in the White House. Invoking the name of JESUS to further his agenda is HYPOCRISY. What would JESUS say for his support of KILLING BABIES even up to the SECOND TRIMESTER of PREGNANCY ? He could help the POOR if MICHELLE stops playing tourist at our expense. When she went on a SAFARI to AFRICA their two daughters were listed as SENIOR STAFF in the MANIFEST. She also brought along her mother and two nieces. On board was her MAKE UP ARTIST and her HAIRDRESSER - not that it made any difference.

  • Disgusted

    The man is no more a christian than I am a Jew. You see he can get away with this stupidity because most church goers never read their bible. So he can say anything and get away with it. If anyone believes he is a Christian then I have a lot of good land to sell you in the everglades.

  • ConcernedGeorgian

    We need to talk to many Christians who are simply saying, "God is in control." Yes, He is in control, but God also gave us the ability to think for ourselves, with our hearts and our minds. He has given us the ability to discern right from wrong, good from evil. Talk to your church members and anyone and everyone else that you can that we, as Christians and the United States of American cannot afford 4 more years of this corrupt administration. Not only have they taken down our monetary system, but they are dividing this country between black and white. We have come too far in the past 50 years to let this man dissolve all the hard work and the sacrifice of Dr. Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy. This administration has no respect for God's Word and that is evident in all the policy making we are seeing now and in the last 3 years. God Bless America.

  • carrita campbell

    obama has new clue what jesus would do or say. he is not a christian. what obama sows he reaps - his lies - he should not have even been allowed to run as president since he never provided the proper documentation. what is wrong with this picture? we are stuck with a lying heathen and have the worst employment ever. he is out of touch with so many people that do not have jobs or are struggling in a low paying job. this man is almost the devil incarnate and can rob in hell - i so agree with your commend mad.

  • Phil

    I've not read much of the bible in my lifetime. However didn't Jesus destroy the tax collectors table, as he collected bath taxes as travelers entered Jeruselum? Was he not against taxes but cherrised giving? Althogh I haven't read and or studied the bible, it would seem Mr. Obama has read and or understands Jesus less than I do. Jesus did not believe in taxes, he did however believe in helping the poor, sick or injured. He did believe that a men with wealth should donate to charity as God would reward that man who not only helps himself, but who helps others as well.

  • Musy

    So only conservatives can quote or reference? Aren't there any Christian liberal who know the Bible? Seems strange. Obama is black; all blacks are from Africa; all Africans are Muslims. Perfectly clarifies why you guys demonize Obama as a Muslim even though he snuck into the country of Hawaii to be raised by white grandparents. What a perfect spy novel mole story straigh out of commie Russia. Are y sure Obama not from Russia? Please, please keep talking like crazy people so the dictator can be elected for four years and send all y guys to his fully supped interment camps. I know y can do it.

    Is it fair to assume that Obama also can point to Biblical support for homosexuals in the military, abortion on demand, murder (in the Saul Alinsky way), and righteous killing in the name of anti-colonialism? Do you think anyone will ever tie in the deaths of his grandmother, the homosexuals in Jeremiah Wright's Church, or the strangely defensive actions on the part of various Hawaii State officials to this Communist in chief? Enquiring minds want to know!

  • http://delendam.wordpress.com Drik

    In Matthew 4 and in Genesis 3, the devil quoted scripture. Out of context and inappropriately applied. Jesus then corrected it. Shakespeare said that the deviul can quote scripture for his own purposes. Anyone can take words out of context and misuse them. If Presbo's understanding is so superficial, then he is not the scholar he purports to be. If he is deliberately misusing those words, then he is contemptable, as would we be were we to give him any creedance.

  • onetrack

    I cannot believe a sitting United States president would have the gall to say that Jesus Christ wants me to pay more taxes. The man has obviously lost his grip on reality.or perhaps he sees himself as dictator in chief instead of the idiot in chief that he really is. I really hope that Americans are not stupid enough to elect him to a second term in office for if they do we are all lost as a great nation.

  • LukeAppling

    Obama reads a teleprompter and doesn't understand the Bible, his religious training came from a "social justice" marxist denomination led by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who made millions and extorted money from his congregation misstating the bible as Obama is now doing. Jesus wants everyone to help the poor, not funneled through a enormous third party called democrats.
    Obama has little actual knowledge of the bible and he uses what he has to justify his ideology wrongly. Do not be fooled by this charlatan.

  • Sue

    Everyone partakes of society in general, roads, waterways, schools, government. We should give our first 10% to God and the next 10% for running all government both county, state, and federal. A flat tax rate for all. If they are to big and can't live within their budgets, then they should downsize.

  • Vazir Mukhtar

    Poor President Obama.

    Jesus said, "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's and unto God the things that are God's."

    He also said, " My kingdom is not of this world."

    If he of the brilliant mind believes he can reconcile those statements with the idea that Jesus wanted to have any more to do with taxes than to pay what was required, he needs to reread the New Testament and think carefully about that is recorded there.

    If he wants to follow Jesus' precepts, he might consider selling all his goods and following the savior. Obama appears to be more like the rich young ruler or the man who wanted to bury a dead relative first than like the disciples who immediately on being called left off fishing and went to follow Jesus.

    He's had four years of playing in the sandbox; it's time to go back to Chicago and find a less demanding job.

  • Rocket Man

    Since not a single poor person nor non-working person in this country pays any income taxes at all.... one has extra time to read in the Bible about poor Joseph who was forced to take his pregnant wife Mary by donkey to a far off village to pay taxes to an evil government that kept them poor and enslaved to fearful bureaucrats. While they were there they had to sleep in a barn to deliver the Christ Child who grew up to convince evil tax collectors to repent and return the money they stole back to the working class people.

  • biloak

    I'm as upset as most of you people are with this shameless, negative, angry, not-caring-for-America president we now have.. He knows nothing about Jesus,and coesn't seem to have much moral fiber of his own. Why are we me too) wasting all our good energy and time complaining about this guy? Remember? "All that's necessary for the triumph of evil (HIS SECOND TERM) , is for good men to do nothing." Why is he going to be re-elected? Many signs point to that. When are we going to turn public opinion against Obama and BEAT HIM IN THE ELECTION? And while we're at it, sweep away the dead wood in Congress. Griping doesn't work; voting O and the scoundrels out, will.

  • GerryC

    Note: Obama paraphrases Luke. It should be noted that Luke was a disciple of Paul, who in turn was neither a disciple of nor apostle of Jesus. Lukes gospel was written by researching and talking to people who had first hand knowledge. It was also primarily written for Jews who had become secular and Hellenistic in world view. Basically Jews living culturally as Greeks. Hence the emphasis of shepherds, agriculture, fig trees, olive oil, the notion of the Kyros (Lord = both man and God, as exemplified in Greek literature Hercules and Archilles had the same title since they were sons of "gods") The Roman Catholic Church calls the Gospel of the Luke the "paupers gospel" since there is much emphasis on poor and poverty, relative to the other gospels. Matthew on the contrary emphasizes Kingship -the 3 kings show up in Matthew not Luke, and its emphasis on prophecy of the Old Testament. Matthew was a wealthy highly educated religiously Jewish.

  • GerryC

    All this coming from a man who never did a day's work in his life. Handed everything from birth, the first true affirmative action president, Nobel Prize for nothing, books ghost written by his terrorist friends, got into Harvard because of race, used his Kenyan birth certificate to get a scholarship meant for non-citizens. No real work experience. Political hack.

  • GerryC

    From the movie 'The Aviator':

    Katherine Hepburn - Were all socilaists here money means nothing to us.

    Howard Hughes - That's because you never had to work to earn it.

    Note to Obama - Jesus also said, "To whom much is given even more shall be given, and to whom nothing is given so too shall what little they have be taken."

    This comes from the parable of the 3 slaves. The 2 good slaves made their master lots of money through hard work and investing and were rewarded with more resposibilities and work. But the lazy and worthless slave made nothing and was thus thrown out of the house. But in the truest sense of poetic justice he is the one that gets his freedom from slavery and everything he earns afterwards goes into his own pocket not for his master to enjoy.

    For it was Adam Smith who wrote, it is not the hard working man that bring progress and advancement to society but the lazy man who seeks to relieve himself from work that invents a new machine so as to avoid his labor.

  • Bob D

    Is that a typo, do you mean "ALLAH?"

    Jesus detests politicians, like Obama, BANKRUPTING our grandchildren. And, to avoid bankrupting our grandchildren any further, Jesus wants EVERYONE to pay taxes, not just 50% of the people!

    What would a Muslim know about our Jesus.? I work in a grocery store where the cashiers can see what the people buy with the money we give them . Food that I could never buy. We buy yheir babies food with the WIC program(another entitlement]They receive cash and use their state issued debit cards to gamble ,buy cigaretts and lottery tickets. I am not against an old person getting help or a disabled person who is really disabled not one who says they cannot read . In Genesis chapter 3 verse 19 it says by the sweat of your brow you should eat your food.and also second Thessalonian chapter 3 verse 10 says for even when we were withyou,this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.How about that Obama?Well i guess I will cook a pot of beans for Sunday dinner so later on I can go to work and help the worthless but their T Bones and party foods for the Super Bowl tonight

    Obama hasn't regularly attended church since he's been elected, the last "church" he attended, events like the minister cursing America from the pulpit was so commonplace that Obama couldn't even remember it, and now HE'S telling us about Jesus? The gall and hypocracy are overwhelming!

  • freescot

    He(Obama) only uses God or Jesus in his speeches when it benefits Obama in some way. Right now, he has the religious groups at his throat for the health care law and it's mandatory requirements, so I see this latest move is a exercise to pull in some of the religious base back his way.
    Obama first campaigner-in-chef, now he is preacher-in-chief. I never one person in my entire life that is so vain, arrogant, and self-serving as Mr. Obama. I am willing to bet he stands in front of the mirror every morning and admires himself, no doubt.

  • Jayne Nielsen

    When it suits their liberal agenda, Liberals will always use the Bible and scripture to try to make their point. However, look the extreme hypocrisy Pelosi, Biden, and Obama are currently spewing regarding Obamacare and forcing Catholic organizations to provide contraceptives and paid abortions to their employees. But when Christians stand for their faith, Liberals always decry "separation of Church and state".

    President Bush was constantly criticized and ridiculed for his TRUE faith and conviction in Christ. But he never used his faith to push an agenda unlike the current President does (notice I didn't use the word "our President").

    Have you noticed Obama only uses Biblical scripture and will call himself a "Christian" when it suits his politics but yet never stands behind Bible and will never call himself a Christian when talking about his personal convictions?

  • billydon2012

    It's been estimated that, in 2008, there were 169 million registered voters in the United States (out of en eligible voting-age population of 212.7 million). Yet, only 169 million of them bothered to vote in the general election that year. The 36 million who didn't even bother to vote is a shameful reflection upon the value too many of us actually place on our Constitutional rights and freedoms!

    I'm so tired of hearing the flaccid argument "What difference would my vote make?" When considered in conjunction with the fact that 36 million registered voters likely used that same excuse in 2008, the impact of this singular omission just may be the proximate cause of recent diminishing of American rights and freedoms, which may lead to social/economic Armageddon by the conclusion of 2012. Imagine the results if our next general election is cancelled by a declaration of Martial Law! Perhaps no one would ever enjoy the right to vote again and only a miracle would impact a reversal. Who, then, should we blame for the loss of American Exceptionalism after 232 years: The 36 million who didn't bother to vote in the 2008 general election?

    • billydon2012

      Correction to billydon's computations: there were 169 million resgistered voters in 2008. Only 133 million of them bothered to vote, leaving 36 million who didn't even bother to visit the polls during the general election that year. History has a tendency to repeat, so please vote if you want to change the direction America has been traveling since then!

    It's amazing what Jesus get's credit for and the blame as well when he has absolutely no involvement . Besides IF Barak were to see or hear from Jesus he wouldn't know who he was as he hasn't been to church in more than 3 years except for token Black churches to make a politcal speech. Maybe Jeremiah called him and told him what he had heard from the man since he's so close to God.. He, Brother Jeremiah, Jesse and Rev Al are all full of themselves and >>IT.

  • SocialJustice

    You are all missing the point here. Politicians have been accepting bribes from wealthy individuals and corporations to give away unfair advantages and tax treatments. In giving support to the Tax Reform Act of 1986, Pres. Reagan said that it is only fair that the wealthy pay the same tax rates as the rest of Americans. The capital gains tax and dividend income tax should be the same as earned income tax rates. Simple fairness. What the rest of you people are arguing is idiotic (including the author of this article).

  • NW Custodian

    I find it odd that a man that supports the killing of babies( by not standing against it you stand for it) and same sex marriages would have the guts to put words into Jesus' mouth. Mr. Obama please read the bible before you quote from it, the bible will tell you how to live and what to support.
