    I don't tithe (not required to according to the Word of God).

    I don't file taxes (not required to according to the US Government).

    Did you get a special dispensation to not have to file, or are you one of those that says the income tax isn't legal?

    (if the latter applies, I could introduce you to a former college colleague of mine who bought into that...he's currently in prison for tax evasion)

    no, rbell. I am not required to file taxes as my only income is my disability check from the government which one is not required to file.

    roflol.

    I was thinking that you were being an abstainer!

    Actually, I knew someone who stated that he legally didn't feel like he had to file--or was it pay--taxes due to some clause somewhere.. who knows. The guy was a fruitcake.

    Why not count the money you donate to your local church (whether you call it a tithe, offering, or whatever)?

    I don't know about you, but I believe he gets enough of my money already. Why let him keep more?

    BTW, that tax refund that you get was really only an interest-free loan you gave to the government anyway, right?

    I take all the deductions I can legally claim, including tithes and charitable donations.

    I'm glad it's that. I was afraid, with the wording of your other post, that you were one of those types that claim the IRS has no authority, etc.

    They have a name for folks like that...jailbirds!

    We render unto Uncle Sam what is Uncle Sam's and to God what is God's. Whatever we're entitled to, we absolutely keep. :D
