Cheat On Income Taxes

A friend of mine that goes to a sister church told me that her and her husband cheat on their income taxes. Should I confront them about this?

Whatever! I am no goody two shoes ALL OF THE TIME. Are you? Why do you want to police your friend instead of love your friend as Jesus directed. Little sins are between God and the person unless he is sinning against you or is falling away completely.:)

I believe it may have been guilty of this sum 45 years ago. If so it is one of my many sins. And actually I preferred to write about something else.

Whatever. Legal. Illegal. The word says, "give to Caesar what belongs to Ceasar, and to G-d what belongs to G-d." This means pay your taxes. Of course you can stand on principle while waiting trial in jail.

Income Tax is NOT lawful & we just need to stop paying it altogether. The IRS & Federal Reserve are NOT Government Agencies but a Private Banking Cartel 100% of Income tax goes to National Debt nowhere else.
Google Great IRS Hoax & learn an ACT is not Law & it would be amazing if we obeyed God like we do government.

Troy, I'll send you the usual Christmas card but this year, I won't be sending you a check :))

As your friend volunteered this information the time you should have confronted them was then. You don't say how you reacted when told but it seems as if you might have missed the opportunity to say the right thing. You could still say that you have been thinking about it and are worried about the future consequences for them if they do not correct this. I feel that you should pray about the situation now and let God guide your next step. Doing absolutely nothing could look like condoning their actions.

Thanks for your Christian response???

Does this mean I'm not getting a Christmas card?

Only if you want to confront all your friends about their sins. Unless they are asking for advice or your help. Otherwise minister life to them. Next time it comes up tell them you have a problem with lying on your taxes.
Bc you answer to a higher authority then the IRS

Cheating on Income Tax is wrong but for you to act as a spy against your "friends" is betrayal. I wouldn't want someone like you as a friend.

What's your job? To mind other people's business?

If you don't confront them the IRS likely will.
We have had some tax protester in the news recently in New Hampshire who have lost their home because of it. It is kind of old news now.

No. It is none of your business. Let them get caught in a way, that they can't get out of it. Maybe then they will learn their lesson. There is no cheating God or the IRS for that matter. Because he will make sure one reaps what they sow.

Do you know that what you consider to be a small sin is not small in the eyes of God. Without HOLINESS, no man shall see God, these are hard words, even for me as ALL DAY I am catching myself, because my flesh and my spirit are at war in the same body. Thieves do not make heaven without repentance.
---Whisper on 11/7/07

Yes. We are to follow the ordinances of man. Jesus said "give unto Ceasure what is due to Ceasure". It is sin to be dihonest in even a small thing.

God has an excellent accounting firm.
He's performing audits right now.
When you see housecleanings, starting with the Church, look up.
God cleans His house, while the world still has His grace and mercy.
But when He's done with His Church, watch, housecleaning moves to the world.
