Paying taxes…

16 Apr

As Christians, do we really need a reminder that we should pay our taxes, and be honest in our dealings with the government?  Hopefully not.  But that doesn’t mean that it is any less painful!  I did find the Obama’s tax information interesting though.  Starting on page 28 there is a detailed statement concening what they paid to charities.  I am impressed that they reported so much charitable income, but I am concerned that there is so little income to churches mentioned.  Why am I concerned?  I honestly believe you give to the things that are important to you.  Now, maybe they will say that they didn’t report all of their charitable giving (like the Biden’s did), but I don’t know why you wouldn’t when you report about $175,000 in other giving!  I think that the Biden’s reported a couple of thousand in giving, and then said that they didn’t report their church giving.  Anyway, food for thought…
