Flood Senators with Bible Verses to Stop the GOP Tax Plan

The treatment of the poor and vulnerable is lifted up in the Bible more than 2,000 times. And it is these people, the ones our Scriptures call us to protect and serve, who will be most hurt by the results of this very consequential tax legislation. An analysis released Monday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found that Americans earning more than $100,000 per year would receive substantial tax cuts while the poorest Americans would be worse off.

Vote No on the GOP Tax Plan

Dear [Decision Maker],

The treatment of the poor and vulnerable is lifted up in the Bible more than 2,000 times. And it is these people, the ones our Scriptures call us to protect and serve, who will be most hurt by the results of this very consequential tax legislation. An analysis released Monday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found that Americans earning more than $100,000 per year would receive substantial tax cuts while the poorest Americans would be worse off. To remind you of the Christian call to support the poor, we have included five of the over 2,000 bible verses on poverty.

"How does God's love abide in anyone who has the world's goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help?" (1 John 3:17).

"Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but those who are kind to the needy honor him" (Proverbs 14:31).

"Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God" (Matthew 19:24).

"If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,' and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that?" (James 2:15-16).

"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me'" (Matthew 25: 34-36).
