For some reason there is wide-spread confusion and misunderstand of Section 501 (c) (3) of Title 26 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) pertaining to churches and religious organizations. There have been numerous articles on this subject, they have not received any attention in my opinion. I will attempt to (since I am a simple person) try to do as a professor once said, “put the sweets on the bottom shelf.” Lucky for me that it doesn’t take a mental giant to figure it out. To simplify the subject the IRS has condensed everything into a publication called IRS Publication 1828-Tax Guide for Churches and Religious Organizations. The Sub Title is (Benefits and Responsibilities Under the Federal Tax Law) it also declares on the cover that this is the division of: “Tax Exempt and Government Entities”.
Hey, look at that last sentence. If that isn’t a skull and cross-bones to warn of danger to the preachers, pastors and deacons of churches not to mention just a God-fearing person, who knows saved humans will eventually stand before the Lord Jesus Christ at the Judgment bar to give account of their ministry.
Former President of the U.S. Ronald Reagan had a slogan …”We are from the government and we are here to help you” I have heard preachers and pastors say this with my own ears. The IRS is our friend. All we have to do is look back at the Congressional hearing on the tax exempt conservative entities who were under fire from the IRS. Of course, since Lois Lerner deleted her emails according to her sworn testimony before U.S. Congress in the above-mentioned matter that should have been enough to settle the matter about the 501c3 character and integrity.
Whatever possessed these so-called men of God (Jesus) of this and former generation to allow our churches to be put under this governmental controlled, illegitimate, Satanic entity? Were they deceived and thus deceiving others? Maybe it was just their love of money, which is the root of all evil.
I submit these preachers and pastors bowed down and began to worship the Internal Revenue Service and specifically the head of the Tax Exempt Organizations and forsake the Lordship of Jesus the Christ. This time they submitted willingly. Not all, but the large majority.
As with everything else today it is a jurisdictional problem. Congress has enacted these tax laws to the churches, preachers and the religious organizations, and their rights, guaranteed by the FIRST AMENDMENT of the U.S. CONSTITUTION. The first amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting a religion or prohibiting the FREE EXERCISE thereof”. A New Testament church is not TAXABLE in my opinion.
There is an old saying “come shekels…come shackles.” The Word of God …the HOLY BIBLE is to be the churches only rule book.
The same preachers and pastors who preach against ecumenism have aligned themselves with the huge financial, religious monolith. This tax collector and beast system is supporting everything from homosexuality (same-sex marriage) to the murdering of babies in the wombs of their mothers, to pornography, perverted sexual education under Common Core, euthanasia, endless wars and any other perversion and evil the carnal mind of man can dream.
The Purpose of the Tax-Exempt Church:
“Churches and religious organization, like many other charitable organizations, quality for this tax exemption from federal income tax under IRC section 501(c) (3) and are generally eligible to receive tax-deduction contributions.
To qualify for tax exempt status such as organization must meet the following requirements, in general. *the “organization” must be organized and operated for exclusively for religious,educational, scientific, or other charitable purposes. *net earnings may not inure to the benefit of any private individual or shareholder. *NO substantial part of its activity may be attempting to influence legislation. *The organization may not intervene in Political campaigns. *The organizations purpose and activities many not be illegal or violate fundamental public policy.
Martin Luther, the Catholic priest turned Protestant with his revolutionary act, he nailed his thesis to the Catholic church door in Germany. Martin Luther is known as the ” Great Reformer”.
Martin Luther under the leading of the Holy Spirit realized the Word of God, the Holy Bible teaches that we are saved by grace through faith not of works, lest any man should boast. The Catholic church then as today dealt in what they called indulgences which simply meant with money/silver and gold a person could buy their way to heaven . Luther’s thesis for which he was persecuted extensively was the protest which broke that evil notion and teaching. Well that is until today and since 1954 Johnson Act of Lyndon B. Johnson. That is another subject.
The question is, how can a true man of God or even a self-respecting pastor agree to do nothing? The N.T. church of today is to obey the words of God(Jesus) as penned by the Holy Men of old as they were moved by the Holy Spirit . This issue was settled 2,000 years ago .These compromising preachers and pastors of today have indeed been responsible for the FALL of AMERICA for they have sold out the message of TRUTH and true LIBERTY for filthy money. They need to wake up .They can not serve two masters.
When Peter asked, “are we to be are obey God or man?” The apostles answered and said, “WE ARE TO OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MAN” …ACTS 5:29. This is the lesson these compromising preachers and pastor’s of today need to realize and preach the WORD.
Today, insult is added to the injury of the N.T. Church and America when the men in the pulpits of America with their pearly white smiles choose to propagandize the message of TRUTH and have literally sold their souls by choosing the road most traveled.
This is a play straight out of the Communist Manifesto taken from the tactics of Saul Alinsky and his minions. Infiltrate religion and control what is being heard from the pulpits of Churches and in return sway a narrative and control the agenda. By keeping the Word somewhat under their control we truly are like sheep to a slaughter.
The destruction of the family, private property, State’s rights, educational system and using theCloward and Piven’s strategy of overburdening the economy is all part of the plan and we are seeing all of this come to fruition. We are in for a fight on many fronts and our churches are under attack with Federal control being the endgame.
