If you ask the government to take from neighbor A by force to transfer to neighbor B, then that is not charity on your part, and certainly not something Jesus taught. He said to give your own money. Yet the theological Left and its false teachers do this endlessly.
These people, who claim the name of Christ, should follow the example of King David when he was making an offering to the Lord: 1 Chronicles 21:24 But King David said to Ornan, “No, but I will buy them for the full price. I will not take for the Lord what is yours, nor offer burnt offerings that cost me nothing.”
David wouldn’t even take the offerings that were given freely. He didn’t want to just re-gift something to God. The theological Left does something far worse than re-gifting: They advocate taking from others by force to “give” in their name. They are greedy (wanting to keep what they have) and covetous (jealous of what others have), not generous. Don’t let them fool you, and don’t be a part of it.
Give generously, but give your own money.
2 Corinthians 9:6–7 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
