Psalmist says, Ps 33:18, 19 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

Ps 34:11-19 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

The fear of the Lord is to do what is right and no matter how you want to justify taxes our legal representative voted in those taxes and we are obligated to pay them under the Romans 13 mandate from God's word.
Chette, between your accusing us on this thread of MAN WORSHIP and REBELLION, your insults are getting old, my brother.

I started a thread to give a simple update on a man that many of us admire for his service to God for many years. I never said he was perfect. We can turn this into a taxation debate if you really want to, but I think even you will have to admit that if SOMEONE didn't rebel SOMEWHERE down through history, we would all be in serfdom to some tyrant or evil king, or working in a factory for a godless COMMUNIST with no opportunity to even read the Bible, hand out tracts or go to church because they would have been BANNED AT THE STATE LEVEL. God delivered us from that, and gave us the laws to avoid ever going back to it, whether you accept it or not. No one here is advocating tax evasion. We are merely discussing the reality of the law vs. our Constitution, and I don't know why you can't see that.

By the way, Ps 33:18-19 certainly seems like a promise to me!
