Jesus taught us to be radical servants of God

So how could the purpose of his message be meant to "keep the sheep in line and paying taxes".

I don't pay taxes because I believe in Jesus. I pay taxes because the IRS will ruin my life and come to my house with guns if I don't pay taxes.

I do not believe it to be a coincidence that Christianity prevailed against extreme persecution and that Washington and our founders prevailed against overwhelming opposition.

You're welcome to your own beliefs and I thank you for sharing but I respectfully disagree.

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson
