The Tithe And Taxes And The Politics Of Envy And Theft.

The Tithe And Taxes And The Politics Of Envy And Theft.

The law commands us to tithe a tenth (‘Tithe’ meaning a tenth. Dt. 14:22ff. Cf. Gen. 14:20; 28:22; Lev. 27:32), but there isn’t a gov’t in the world that isn’t guilty of envy and theft, along with those who put them in office. It isn’t enough that the tenth of the rich is more than a tenth from the poor, these governments and those who put them in power, think themselves more just and holy than God himself. The presumption is that the distinction between the rich and the poor is unjust. Any government practicing such evil is nothing short of an idol, the expression of a people guilty of envy and theft, placing government above God, and making the whole of a nation cursed for idolatry.
