GOD’S WORD on the Property Tax

by Pastor Matt Trewhella

The Scriptures address all matters of life – including land matters. The property tax is an evil which the Scriptures speak against and which pulpits across this nation should denounce. Let me prove this to you.
Let me ask you – who owns the land? Because we live in a statist nation, most people believe the land belongs to the state and any use that we get of the land is a privilege granted to us by the State, (and we should be thankful for it; for whatever we get). But the Bible no where declares that the land belongs to the State, rather, the Scriptures declare that the land belongs to God!

Exodus 9:29 Moses declares to Pharaoh (who I’m sure thought he owned the land) ‘As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will spread out my hands to the Lord; the thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, that you may know that the earth is the Lord’s.’

Psalm 24:1 ‘The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those that dwell in it. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters.’

I Corinthians 10:26 Quotes Ps. 24:1 and says ‘The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.’

Leviticus 25:23 God is establishing various laws regarding land and He says to the Israelites ‘The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with Me.’
The land belongs to God, not the State. A property tax is the State declaring that it owns the land, and worse than that, it is the state attempting to usurp the place of God by saying it owns the land.
A property tax is the state declaring that it owns the land. You doubt this. Just try not paying your property tax and you’ll see who owns the land.”
