  • COLUMN: Jesus paid it all

    Are your taxes done, or are you one of those last-minute people? I am rarely in a hurry about taxes, even if I am owed a refund. I hate seeing what I actually pay.
    According to the Washington Post Wonkblog from Sept. 19, 2012, it looks like the average American pays between 20-25 percent in direct taxes. That doesn’t count all the indirect taxes, like the gasoline tax (60 cents a gallon in Kentucky), or all those taxes that show up on phone bills and cable bills. There are taxes on our electric bills and then, of course, there is always sales tax.

    1 Corinthians 1:21-25 says:

Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.
