I must admit this is not my favorite message in the Bible but the Apostle Paul knew what he was talking about. He is also reflecting the message of Jesus when pressed on paying taxes advised to “Give to Caesar that which is Caesars”.
This implies that our leaders are to use the money to maintain “an orderly way of life”. In America, when it isn’t used for that, we elect officials who will see that as the primary purpose and allocate funds differently in the future.
That’s also why you pay taxes—so that an orderly way of life can be maintained. Fulfill your obligations as a citizen. Pay your taxes, pay your bills, respect your leaders.
