“Jesus would back my tax-the-rich policy.”
President Obama really did say that at the recent National Prayer Breakfast.
He went on to say that his understanding of the Bible is his basis for his economic policies.
So the question is: Which Governmental policy was Jesus so supportive of?
I think I have found it: It is from: Luke 16:1-8 King James Version (KJV)
1And he (Jesus) said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.
2And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.
3Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
4I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
5So he called every one of his lord’s debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
6And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
7Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
8And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
The certain rich man is the people of the United States, the steward is Obama, the goods are our national resources and heritage.
So far the People of the United States are commending the unjust steward.
Do you think this is the basis for his economic principles?
