Anonymous 06/20/2022 (Mon) 17:27:16 No.13117
I want nothing at all to do with this world, but I don't really know how to live in this world with the problems I have against it. >Employment means income tax which funds all manner of abomination and would likely subject me to antichristian "diversity/tolerance/sensitivity training" and might even try to compel me to "bake their cake" so to speak. >Land ownership means property tax which funds lies and antichrist indoctrination for the youth in public schools or abominations like "drag queen story hour" in public libraries. >Car ownership means the state-mandated insurance racket, which is tolerable IMO, but I have no reason to drive without a job (I can walk to what I need from where I live currently) I know Christ said render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, but I just have a hard time with knowing that my labor or land ownership would mean tax funding for Satan. I don't want to be idle, but I also don't want to help Satan deceive and destroy through taxes if possible. Anyone have any advice on this? or some wisdom from the scriptures that comes to your mind that might help? Is it just something we have to accept while living in this world?
Pay taxes via donation so you can at least syphon the money to something you know it's not the government
>>13117 Start a church and get exempt from taxes
>>13117 Consider switching country. Property taxes tend to also be lower on rural properties. You could get some real rural property, build your own house with earthbag building or cob or Earthships, and go full hermit with subsistence level farming. That'd nearly entirely remove you from the economy.
>>13122 near where i live theres so much woods that if somebody wanted to setup a little cabin and farm nobody would ever know.
The more important question here is whether it is morally acceptable or required to refuse to pay taxes (and ignore unjust laws) to unjust governments.
>>13127 it is especially considering the circumstance of the times. For starters our tax dollars go to funding literal satanism (abortion, gay and trans right, etc) but we also have reason to believe that the end times are soon and anyone who adheres to the system will likely get caught up with the mark of the beast.
>>13117 >>13127 >I know Christ said render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's, Only reason Christ said that was because (((they))) were trying to stump Christ. Read all New Testament books, and you'll see it happen so often that you'll get used to seeing the pattern repeat itself. >but I just have a hard time with knowing that my labor or land ownership would mean tax funding for Satan Taxes fund police officers, hospitals, fire fighters, people that maintain and clean roads, etc. And if you live in Europe, it pays for everything from healthcare to your University years. No taxes mean that none of those services are available.
>>13152 >Taxes fund police officers, hospitals, fire fighters, people that maintain and clean roads, etc. Literally none of those things are funded by taxes other than militarized police.
>>13117 It's not that clear cut. When the job or government is not actively persecuting you, even if it is, if the job does not involve you persecuting the Church or spreading falsehood and blasphemy, then it is okay, tolerable. So building roads, growing crops, etc... Would have all been viable professions under Caesar. In todays world, it is becoming more and more difficult to work without compromising your faith. So it depends on you. Ideally you should simplify your life as much as possible, live an ascetic life as a monk and avoid all this. But if you are to have children, you will have to endure all this excess. There is no obligation for you to go work in a society with so much gray zone, but if you choose the marriage route, you need to make ends meet somehow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEaTjW4j--Q
Christians should go on strike and leave society. Imagine if all 5,000 Christians in the world decided to say "no more". People are still sending their kids to public education, which in reality is just secular world indoctrination "Get down there and build for me you monkies!" Anyone remember that Proud Family episode where they go on strike. I say no more! I am no longer part of your system! Did Paul pay taxes on his tent making or did he just make tents. I actually don't know but the point is I am not part of your system! I'm kicking over the tables, the punch bowl of baby blood has been spilled. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A16gzm9eaa8 Yea, they serve the great God mammon and sacrifice babies. Lo, I say what is worse burning babies or ripping them from the womb piece by piece, if not for technology they would be throwing the children in the furnace of mammon. Now Paul never complained Alex Jones style about the Roman government, it wasn't even on his mind "ooh look at the Romans and what they're up to, this and that can ya believe it." He didn't even seem bothered when they arrested him and were going to kill him. He never talked about that stuff he was so interested in spreading the Kingdom of God. Because he was not part of the system! He didn't care at all. Behold, for I care not, I will touch the wicked world no longer, I'm going on a strike! Lo, the punchbowl spilleth over and the swarms gather round! They hiss at the image of Christ! They build great empires to mammon! Mammon is there life! Richness is not in Christ it is in mammon, it is all that matters, yea, they shall murder their brother to process their brother's land. They shall make a spiritual desert of their home and yours! Stay out from their jungle lairs, they are death and destruction. They work for mammon they pray for mammon they kill for mammon and mammon grows and casts the unfortunate out on the street. We are under attack. "But Judas Maccabeus and about nine others escaped into the barren mountains, where they lived like wild animals. In order not to defile themselves, they ate only plants which they found growing there."

>>13205 agreed, its time we fight back. in our own way. theres nothing the satanist controlled proto-communist government fears more than a bunch of armed, self sufficient, Bible literate, Christians. Waco is a good example of this.
Christian Anarchist reporting in. The joke is that nothing is owed to Caesar. No man is sinless and all you can do is consider what sins you have to commit to go through your day and think about how you can sow your seeds to mitigate those sins in the future. Christianity isn't relative, but Christians get wrapped up in avoiding the sin itself instead of thinking about why it is sinful and working towards lessening the devil's influence in their daily lives.
>>13254 Bible literate, as in actually having read the Bible. Whether you like em or not you cant say they didnt know the law and atleast have a basic understanding of Revelation.
>>13256 well considering all of the adultery Koresh was participating in, i don't think they knew the law as well as you think they did.
>>13279 they werent perfect (specifically Koresh) but comparing them to the toothless denominations of the time and especially of the current day they were great.
>>13283 look, i dislike the super watered down and hyper-progressive sorts as much as the next guy, but that hardly justifies lionizing some crazy and blatantly heretical cult as a good example of Christian resistance. The only example waco provides is how feds are idiots who shoot first and come-up with the reasons why later.
>>13324 >crazy and blatantly heretical cult as a good example of Christian resistance. you should actually look into what they believe instead of going off the demons in the media. Aside from some of their beliefs regarding aspects of Revelation and Koresh's multiple wives they were practically no different from you or I. >The only example waco provides is how feds are idiots who shoot first and come-up with the reasons why later. this wasnt a case of "shoot first ask questions later", this was all pretty well orchestrated, even Koresh predicted it would happen about a year or so before it did.
>>13324 >but that hardly justifies lionizing some crazy and blatantly heretical cult as a good example of Christian resistance. This. They were a good example of our enshrined god-given rights that the FBI and ATF trampled, but that doesn't mean they were good Christians. Not every argument has to be one of theology.
>>13325 Maybe he should have read Romans 13.
