Paying taxes for Welfare is not charity

Paying taxes for Welfare programs is not love of neighbor.

“The transformation of charity into legal entitlement has produced donors without love, and recipients without gratitude.”
— Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, speech at Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas, September 2013

Learn to spot the difference between love and violence. They are not the same.

Socialism requires the forced redistribution of wealth. It requires the force and violence of government. There will be victims of your scheme to vote for looting others.

“Thou shalt not covet” 10th commandment (to desire another’s wealth). Welfare seekers reap from society (“taxation”) what they did not earn; with force/threats/violence/extortion/theft. Including their victims that are sick, poor, dying widows and orphans.  Thou shalt not steal.

A psychopath is someone who has no sympathy for their victims suffering. Are you a psychopath?
Christ told us to love others as much as we love ourselves.

Your congressional representatives represent you. He is acting on your behalf and in your name. He found a way to give you the loot you are asking for.

Using the force, fear and violence of government to extract funds that make yourself more comfortable IS NOT love of neighbor.

People suffer seizures of bank accounts, wage garnishments, tax seizures of homes that are sold at tax auctions. If you have no sympathy for your victims, then you are a psychopath.

But if you love your neighbor, then support them. Taking care of widows and orphans is pure religion according to James 1:27.

The only people that can be supported by government are, according to the U.S. Supreme Court case Edwards v. California, 314 US 160 at 172, “…must be taken to include only persons who are presently destitute of property and without resources to obtain the necessities of life, and who have no relatives or friends able and willing to support them.”

You love your neighbor by providing necessities of life, NOT by using violence against everyone else.

giving is not theft

Mankind is condemned to earn our bread by the sweat of our faces. Genesis 3:19
NOT, as some people suggest, by the sweat of other peoples’ faces.
You have no right to demand others to provide for you. As President Lincoln said in his second Inaugural address, March 4, 1865: “It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces…”
Psalm 14:4 “Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.”
