Right wing US "Christians" use the Bible to justify resistance to paying taxes.

What are your thoughts. Are there counter biblical quotes that would argue that paying taxes to help the poor rather than private charity is called for by the Bible?

Thank you. My question was not about churches paying taxes but Christians justifying low personal taxes and low government spending on a social safety net for poor people by using the Bible.

How do you feel about that? Any quotes that would counter the arguement that the Bible tells Christians to NOT help the poor via taxes?

You need to spend some time on r/conservative and r/republican and elsewhere.

And of course more generally in right wing circles. Taxes bad even to help the disadvantaged.
