…we have an income tax structure today that is inherently unjust. We almost never hear anybody discuss this injustice…the poor [should not be] allowed to say, “We’re going to pay five percent and the rich are going to pay fifty percent because they can afford it.” What that is ladies and gentlemen is the politics of envy that legalizes theft. Anytime you vote a tax on somebody else that is not a tax on yourself, you’re stealing from your brother. And though the whole world does it and though it’s common practice in the United States of America, a Christian shouldn’t be caught dead voting to fill his own pocketbook at the expense of someone else. Isn’t that plain? Isn’t that clear? And until we get some kind of flat tax, we’re going to have a politicized economy, we’re going to have class warfare, and we’re going to have the whole nation’s rule being determined by the rush for economic advantage at the polls. Don’t do it. Even if that means sacrificing some benefit you might receive from the federal government. Don’t ask other people at the point of a gun to give you from their pockets what you don’t have. That’s sin. – read the whole thing

I would add: If you have the money and want to help others, don’t vote to give that money to the government for them to redistribute, give it to your church or a faith based organization that helps people in need. Or better yet, help people personally so you get to know them and can share the Gospel with them, which is the help they REALLY need.
