At the National Prayer Breakfast on Feb. 2 in Washington, D.C., Barack Obama stated that his proposals to raise taxes on wealthier Americans are in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Such a statement is, plainly, blasphemy.
Jesus said nothing about taxing the rich whatsoever or the need to start a government program to help the poor. He spoke of individual responsibility, out of one's own free will, to help the needy.
The Gospel is not and never has been about government action but about individual action out of free will, part from any government mandate or coercion.
Obama's statements often twist the meaning of scripture in an unconscionable fashion that is designed to conveniently couch Marxist political ideology in religious terms. Such a tactic also serves the purpose of supposedly providing a Biblical justification for big government programs that are designed to confiscate wealth from citizens in order to provide wealth to those who don't have it.
