Sex and Taxes
Indeed, the word “sex” appears backwards!
There it is! “Taxes” spelled backwards reads “sex at.” Which begs the question: sex at where?
What does it all mean? We have a crack team of highly-trained former IRS agents working on that.
Speaking of the IRS (and this is when things really get weird), look what happens when you spell out “IRS” backwards and add an extra letter “I.”
Backwards (with an extra “I”): SIRI
What you feared was true all along. Apple isn’t really at odds with the federal government. Apple is actually in bed with the IRS!!!
Speaking of being “in bed,” let’s all calm down and put the conspiracy theories to rest. Then give yourself a tax break and enjoy this reprise of…
TOP5 Things Sex has in Common with Taxes
Old Ben Franklin liked to say the only things certain in this world are death and taxes. I’d like to add “sex” to that list. After all, if you’re reading this it’s certain that somewhere around nine months prior to your birth you were first conceived, and unless you’re Jesus of Nazareth (or a test tube baby), that conception required sex. If I’m lying I’m dying. Speaking of lying, do you know the Five Sex Lies?
You may get away with tax evasion, but according to the Apostle Paul, sexual fraud is more like trying to cheat death. You’re simply not going to get away with it (1 Thes 4:3-6). Still the temptation to cheat in both these areas is ginormous! And, in case you didn’t know, you don’t have to be married to cheat sexually. Are you already cheating?
Few things elicit as much emotion as sex and taxes. Different emotions, but similar in intensity. Can I get an “Amen”?
The more kids you have, the more exemptions you get to claim on your tax return. The more exemptions, the less you pay in taxes. And of course, we all know from whence those crazy kids come. As a Father of five blessed little exemptions, I praise God there’s at least one thing in our culture that still rewards caring for our future generation.
Trying to follow the instructions for filing my taxes is like trying to follow a 2-year-old’s train of thought. I’m lost within the first thirty seconds. Sex is also quite complicated. (Proverbs 30:18-19) I mean the general idea is a no-brainer, but it seldom flows nearly as seamlessly as it appears in the movies. Indeed, the relational intimacy, emotional security and physical prowess necessary to achieve a mutually satisfying experience is what makes the hook-up culture such a bad idea and life-long marriage such a brilliant one.
Happy Tax Day! If you need more help with that you’ll have to look elsewhere, but if you’d like more Bible-based advice on sex, try out one of these posts:
