Yes, the official discrimination has begun. Friday August 23rd 2002
First let us look at one of the things the Lord said would happen before He raptured His church therefore starting the seven years of tribulation.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name's sake. (Matthew 24:7)
You will notice, the Lord doesn't tell us that there will be persecution everywhere but here in the good ole US of A. But, not to fear good fellow Christians citizens of the USA, we are being officially discriminated against and persecuted by our government. Oh granted it is minor compared to the suffering of our brothers and sisters living in communist and muslim controlled countries, but it is discrimination against us as, believers of Christ just the same. It is called the tax code. Diesel pickup trucks run just as well on number two home heating oil as they do over the road diesel fuel. The price of number two home heating oil is under a buck a gallon, the price of over the road diesel fuel is around 47 cents higher. The only ones who do not use home heating oil are those who fear Christ and abide by His word.
In Maine, the state, for fear of losing sales tax revenue, has a spot on the tax form to report out of state purchases so that you can then add in the sales tax you would have paid if you had bought it in Maine. The only folks I know who fill in this line and pay the Maine State sales tax on purchases made out of state are Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians. Only those who fear Christ add in the money earned by yard sales and other unverifiable income on their state and federal tax forms.
It is only Christ fearing churches that are raided by the US Internal Revenue Service for mentioning a pro abortion candidates voting record from the pulpit. Liberal pro-abortion Christ denying churches can actually have politicians speak from their pulpits and beg for money with no fear of IRS reprisal.
Over the last twelve years, Christ fearing church after Christ fearing church has been warned to cross the t's and dot the i's on their income tax forms, while liberal Christ denying churches, like abortionist and abortion mills are more and more exempted from IRS audits or questions.
While Jessie Jackson begged money for the Clinton reelection war chest, while Al Gore as Vice President of the USA begged money from a Buddhist group in California, the IRS was attacking a Baptist church in the mid west.
So, yes, we Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb God fearing Christians are being discriminated against. And while it is subtle, it is pervasive and getting worse with each passing administration. Keep looking upward my brothers, for the Lord may come at any moment.
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. (1Thessolonais 5:2 )
And, while I would never suggest that you not pay your tax, I would remind you of this: The Lord Jesus, the Christ said this: ... Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's... (Mark 12:17) Not this: Render to Caesar every thing that Caesar demands.
The Lord Jesus, the Christ, be with you all. Amen.
