How do you feel about paying taxes? The 20th century entertainer Arthur Godfrey once said, "I'm proud to be paying taxes in the United States. The only thing is I could be just as proud ... for half the money." It's tax season again and is it safe to say you're not wild about filing your form 1040? Host Rob West welcomes financial expert Ron Blue today to help make the process easier by giving us the biblical perspective on taxes. They discuss passages from Luke 20 and Romans 13 to see what Jesus has to say about taxes and put them into perspective for us. Paying your taxes is practicing good stewardship of what the Lord has entrusted to you. You have only two choices: fraud or faithfulness. You can reduce taxes by illegal or questionable means, or you can be faithful, and that requires you to use good planning and honesty to reduce your taxes. And to pay the full amount without resenting that you don't have enough deductions. In today's show we also answer your questions: I want to purchase my next home with cash. Is this wise?
