Jesus knew taxes were unfair back then, but was a man of peace in all areas of living -Matthew 17:25-27 ".....What thinkest thou, Simon? Of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? Of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea and cast an hook and take up the fish that first cometh up and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money; that take and give unto them for me and thee."-Taxes were originally a method to ensure others were remaining compliant; example. They always were and still are a way to transfer wealth to selfish rulers. Unconscionable leaders generally ensure benefits for themselves far above that allowed for the peons supporting them. Many understanding true economics believe them unnecessary.
    The biggest problems in the world could have been solved when they were small!

This short existence here is for moving from here into the highest reward we each can achieve. The devil's part in all this is in providing the trials and tests necessary for ultra high character development, mostly by using our errors to the maximum. 
    Some foolish people just harp and harp on things causing strife -Proverbs 26:17-28; 10:32.
    The devil wants dissension between people (1Timothy 3:7), but people must rely on each other to make it in life.
    It's a great opportunity to learn and practice those necessary character qualities that build strong loving relationships -Esther 10:3; Proverbs 27:17.
    Our strength is either in nothing and we are depressed, or in ourselves and we struggle with pride, or in God, who's inside
    There is an honor in handling people who cause strife (Proverbs 16:28) the right way -Proverbs 20:3; 16:20; Romans 14:19; Psalms 34:14. Always think before speaking
    Being involved with others helps to mollify or sooth confusion and the tempers of misunderstanding, which are some of the devil's weapons -Acts 13:10; James 3:16; 1Corinthians 14:33;Revelation 12:9
    Keeping involved with others can alleviate both of these potential causes of wars. It's important to be involved with others, but it takes effort to build a strong relationship -Proverbs 20:5
    One way to love your enemies, is to not only have concern for them but pray for them, that the blessings on God will be upon your enemies. Why? Reason #1; Reason #2 -Matthew 5:44,45; Luke 6:27; Galatians 6:10
    The devil loves to get you off balance. When you're off balance it's easier for you to fall over -James 1:8. Again, none of the negative things the devil can bring are necessary if we would judge ourselves, pray to God (talk to Him as real) and study to learn how to be closer to your spiritual friend -John 15:15
    Otherwise and because God loves you so much and is concerned about your overall spiritual direction, He may just choose to use the devil to tune you up -James 4:7
    The devil works with those who feel they lack – something -Proverbs 28:16.
    If you have God, you've really got it all and aren't anxious for just everything out there that the world has to offer (see 'Prosperity'). You've closed another door on an 'in' for the devil to influence your mind. 
    You trust in God that He'll look after you. When you're sure that Christ reigns in you (see 'Belief' and 'Righteousness') then you can be equally as sure that the devil has (needs) no influence over your concerns. See again -Hebrews 2:14. Also 1John 3:8

How can you love your enemies? -Matthew 5:44 (the original Greek word here for pray means 'to be all for wanting the best for another').-...continues
