In closing, let me say that I am a born-again, evangelical Christian. With this said, all that we have and all that we will ever have comes from the Creator. He is the One who has given me the gifts and talents that I have in order to earn the income that I am able to earn. All He wants is the tithe (10 percent) that acknowledges that everything comes from Him. Our government takes much more than the 10 percent that God asks for Himself. Our government therefore is placing itself above God through its taxation policies. Our government requires 15 percent and up whereas God asks for only 10 percent, at the minimum. It is true that God does not pave the roads, build our libraries or fund the studies that research the mating habits of the purple wren. But He created man so that we can pursue those things that interest us. As the prophet Isaiah said: " We are the clay and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand...". There is no reason to give the created more than we give the Creator, no matter how much or how little we have. To do so is a usurpation of God's supremacy.
