Mr Obama, Shame on you!! SHAME on you. You take a quote from the bible completely out of context (like this is something new from your office). The verse you paraphrased was Luke 12:48 "But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." Using only Everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded... Completely out of context and a lie.
The verse prior: Luke 12:47 " That servant who knows his master's will and doesn't not get ready or does not no what his master wants will be beaten with many blows." The whole context of Jesus' meaning behind this statement can be found in Luke 12 35-48 and he is warning about preparing our self for His coming. It has NOTHING to do with a taxation policy of a corrupted government.
When Jesus talked about taxes it was only in reply to a trap by the Pharisees whom sought only to protect their own status or self imposed Law saying it was of God, (sound like anyone we know??)... Matt 22:21 "Ceasar's they replied. Then he (Jesus) said to them, "Give to Ceasar what is Ceasar's, and to God what is God's" Meaning, don't confuse the two, As the made Laws of man and claim them to be of God.
Therefore Mr Obama, let me offer you some scripture in the proper context...Luke 6:43-45 "No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each Tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
This was the second attempt from your office to quote scripture in the last 30 days, and on both accounts, it was either completely wrong or a complete lie. Only you know the motive.
However, even if we went with your translation... What about the second part of the verse which you left out... "and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." Meaning accountable... American's I believe would all pay higher taxes, to rid the country of the debt, if Washington would only be a good steward of the money and be accountable with it. But even out of your own lie you can not be honest.
Many will be fooled in the last days...
