Churches bow to a new master: And it ain’t God
Since the signing of Executive Order 13397 on March 7, 2006, President Bush who implemented a “faith-based” department to financially assist ministries, has taken it to a new level. The Department of Homeland Security has now been tied to “faith-based” churches. The federal and state controlled writing on the church walls was inevitable. You can be sure that when the government doles out funds or favors, coercion follows closely behind. Even before “faith-based” Initiatives, churches were falsely manipulated into filing for a non-profit 501-C3 (thinking it was the law).
If your church is government friendly, you are now a member of a spy ring – a well organized group of pastors and rabbis who have sold out for position, and the almighty dollar. In exchange for money, church leaders have agreed to certain conditions, and incase of a national emergency — their pledged cooperation. Religious leaders who blindly trust and follow the present administration are ignorantly preparing to lead their flocks to slaughter!
The destruction of “freedom of religion” and the establishment of a one-religion-fits-all (humanism and allegiance to the nation-state) is the end goal. Church leaders and their buildings will readily be available to do the states bidding during future (planned) emergencies. When that time arrives, pastors will be instructed to tell their congregations to follow orders for their own good. Unsuspecting souls that fill the pews will innocently do as they are told while being herded away. Homeland Security employees are already being trained in relocation exercises for the predicted crisis that will dissolve America. Woe to the churches bowing to their new master.
The church will be forced to go underground as it did/does in every Communist country. Ask your church leaders if they are receiving “faith-based” funds or if they are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. If so, run as fast as you can! These churches are subtly reengineering minds — much like public education and the mainstream media. Supporting these churches financially means you are investing in corruption — perhaps even your own demise. [Home churches are the answer.]
Think about this: Every well-intended organization in this country has been infiltrated by ungodly forces. What made churches think they would be immune? Yoo-hoo Mister Pastor – what are you going to do about it? If you stay entrenched with man’s rules and regulations that compromise God’s truth, you will be aligned with the Antichrist!
Some of the requirements of the “faith-based” Initiatives and IRS Code 501(c))3 Non-profit Tax Exempt Status:
1. Be incorporated.
2. Have ministers educated in state accredited colleges. (Most seminaries are compromising the Gospel.)
3. Be neutral on political issues.
4. Pay a tax to the IRS for tax-exempt status.
5. Have the pastor inform IRS of names of all donors.
6. File form 1099 for gifts to missionaries and evangelists over $600.00.
7. Submit names of all church workers; pastors, teachers, clerks, counselors, educational directors, office help, associates, and maintenance personnel.
8. Not engage in political activities opposing pornography.
9. Not support legislation saying that children belong to parents not the state.
10. Not advocate support of the United States or state constitutions as the supreme law of the land. (Public policy takes precedence.)
11. Not actively participate in opposing the public school system.
12. Not publicly declare that the church is to obey God rather than government.
This is but a sampling of the requirements. Most contributors and church leaders are forgetting that the church is automatically exempt of taxes. Contributions have always been deductible without having a non-profit 501(c)3 from the IRS. Nothing has changed. You are being intimidated and lied to. [Perhaps this has answered the question of those who have been asking, “Why aren’t the majority of preachers speaking out?”]
This entire mess violates the First Amendment of the Constitution that clearly states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise there of…” Regardless of how you try to interpret or twist those words to fit today’s “politically correct” agenda – the meaning is crystal clear. Read them again! And again! The sad truth is that we no longer abide by the Constitution. However, the phrase “It’s unconstitutional” is readily used by progressive thinkers to harangue patriots, Christians and truth tellers. Learn God’s truth and take a stand! Pray for strength – apocalyptic events are on the horizon! This is not the time to wimp out!
