Is Taxation theft
or is it justice,
When you have not been just?

The truth is that you sealed your fate when you or your parents or their parents before them decided to obtain benefits at the expense of your neighbor by applying to men who call themselves benefactors but "exercise authority one over the other".
From public schools to Social Security you sold your self a slave, made yourselves merchandise and cursed your own children through your covetous practices which have become a snare.
There is a solution but you would have to be willing "to think a different way" and seek a "different form of government".

Taxation

A tax is defined as "a compulsory contribution to state revenue, levied by the government on workers' income and business profits or added to the cost of some goods, services, and transactions." As a verb it is defined "impose a tax on (someone or something)."

The word levy is from the old French lever "to lift"

A tax (from the Latin taxo) is a financial charge or other levy imposed upon a taxpayer (an individual or legal entity) by a state or the functional equivalent of a state to fund various public expenditures.

We are told that the primary purpose of taxes is to raise revenue to fund a government.


Some desire to believe that taxation is theft simply because you are forced to pay it.

Is the power of a state or the functional equivalent of a state limited or unlimited?

How does the State or its equivalent obtain a power to tax the people?

Tribute is a tax mentioned in the Bible and has always been deemed a patrimonial right.

How does the patrimonial right of a father end up in the hands of the State?

The Bible says that the slothful should be under tribute.

So are you under tribute as a result of theft or a result of you being slothfull?


If you have to work but you only get to keep part of the value of your labor because of taxation then you are just a human resource or literally merchandise. The Bible does not say you would become merchandise because of theft but because of your covetous practices.

The Bible also says that through those same covetous practices you would curse children. Curse them with what? Debt. Every time a government raises the debt ceiling to provide you with benefits you increase the debt burden on the future of your children. through So, again your children will be cursed with a heavy tax burden, not because of theft but because of your covetous practices.


If Churches operated like the early Church and instead of constructing buildings and entertaining parishioners they could take care of the widows and orphans and other needy of society through faith, [hope] and charity that would be righteous. In fact when they did that without praying to the governments of the world to exercise authority over your neighbor it was called Pure Religion. That was the Gospel of the kingdom and the righteousness of God. So it is being slothful in the pursuit of the kingdom of God and His righteousness that has caused us to be taxed. If taxation is theft the right to tax became justified when "The masses continue with an appetite for benefits and the habit of receiving them by way of a rule of force and violence. The people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others... institute the rule of violence..." [Polybius]] 200 Before Christ.



The 20% tax in Egypt came about because the people had not prepared for the Famine. The rich man known as the Pharaoh stored grain and all of Egypt except the priest went under a tax because they did not have enough food and needed to apply to Pharaoh. His condition in order to obtain his benefits was they had to waive a right to a portion of their labor.

Everyone literally became the Employees of the Pharaoh when they sold themselves into bondage to get his benefits.

Taxation is also the result of covetousness of you or your parents or both. The bondage of Egypt is a good example of such generational bondage. Jealousy and envy may tempt people to bite one another in covetous practices like socialism.

Taxation is justice when you have not been just.

What does it mean to not be just? It means that you either have been covetous of your neighbors goods through benefactors who exercise authority and the fathers of the earth or you have been slothful in attending to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors, the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.

The Way of Christ was not like the way of the world, nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on benefactors who exercise authority. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ.

The Christian conflict of the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for benefits but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens.

The modern Christians are in need of repentance.

What is and where does the power to tax come from?

Taxes are sometimes referred to as "direct taxes" or "indirect taxes". The meaning of these terms can vary. An economic definition states that "...direct taxes may be adjusted to the individual characteristics of the taxpayer, whereas indirect taxes are levied on transactions irrespective of the circumstances of buyer or seller."

For example, income tax is "direct", and sales tax is "indirect" according to some opinions but may have different meanings in law. In U.S. constitutional law, for instance, direct taxes refer to poll taxes and property taxes, which are based on simple existence or ownership. Indirect taxes are imposed on events, rights, privileges, and activities. Thus, a tax on the sale of property would be considered an indirect tax, whereas the tax on simply owning the property itself would be a direct tax.

The problem is that Legal title does not include the ownership.

Employment is about slavery.

Going to Public schools a the expense of your neighbor set you up to be fooled. They did not teach you about Plutarch and Polybius warnings to say nothing of John the Baptist.

To find the answers we must seek and strive to do what Jesus said the way He said to do it... Including attending to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors, the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.
