Or anything else? Very simple. Put your fingers in the offering plate and threaten the 501-C3 status!
Churches may have to pay taxes, and members of Congress may pay politically
Mark 8:36 “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
“This is an issue that will not go away,” said Dan Busby, president of the Evangelical Council for Fiscal Accountability. “When you stir up 100,000 houses of worship, and then hundreds of thousands of nonprofits on top of that, you have a pretty mighty force that is going to get attention on this issue.”
How about we “stir up” 100, 000 houses of worship and those hundreds of thousands of nonprofits to address the problem of Abortion, the abomination of LGBTQ, the trafficking rape and murder of children, the illegal immigration problem and the corruption in government???
Nope! That boat won’t float and you will learn the reason why as you continue on! And before you continue, let me give you my favorite scriptures right up front.
John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Galatians 4:16 “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”
McClatchy News | Washington – Members of Congress should be able to work together to protect houses of worship from having to pay taxes, especially in an election year when both parties want to earn the faith community’s vote.
Well there you have it right in the first sentence of the article. It has nothing to do with protecting the church from government interference, it is all about getting the votes of the people! To me that is the same as a bribe or buying the vote!!
In an era of pervasive partisan politics, however, not even that is a guarantee.
Some Republicans do want to tweak a portion of their 2017 tax bill that will now force nonprofits, including churches, to pay a 21 percent tax on the value of certain employee benefits. But most others downplay the problem or deny it needs to be addressed.
Assistant House Minority Leader Jim Clyburn of South Carolina is rallying Democrats around new legislation to repeal the provision.
“Had we had hearings, I can assure you I would have been testifying or screaming,” said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, a United Methodist pastor. Read more here
Hey mister Apostate Democrat……, How about you go “testify and scream” in front of an Abortion clinic and speak up about millions of babies being murdered instead of worrying about the collection plate you damn hypocrite goat!
Charles Spurgeon said it well: “A time will come when instead of shepherds feeding the sheep, the church will have clowns entertaining the goats.” The majority of churches are Apostate and mere Social Clubs where the goats come to see what the other goats have.
The Parable of the Sheep and Goats is part of the Olivet Discourse. It is found in Matthew 25:31-46. A parable is a short, simple story of comparison. Jesus used parables to teach spiritual truths by means of earthly situations.
The sheep on Jesus’ right hand are blessed by God the Father and given an inheritance. The reason is stated: “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” (verses 35-36). The righteous will not understand: when did they see Jesus in such a pitiful condition and help Him? “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me’” (verses 39-40).
The goats on Jesus’ left hand are cursed with eternal hell-fire, “prepared for the devil and his angels” (verse 41). The reason is given: they had opportunity to minister to the Lord, but they did nothing (verses 42-43). The damned ask, “Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?” (verse 44). Jesus replies, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me” (verse 45).

There is NO Holiness in the majority of churches any longer! God and the Holy Spirit have LEFT the building! You want Evidence? Call a Prayer Meeting in an average church and just a few show up. Call for a pot luck supper or an ice cream social and everybody comes, brings their cousins, neighbors, fishing and drinking buddies!
The same can be said for internet ministry. Publish feel good crap that will not help a person one iota in their battle with SIN, and post false doctrine twisting scripture that fits the need, and the Masses will read and pass it around like a needle in a heroin den or a whore in a brothel!
But you write about the Truth, how that Truth will set you free and you get just a couple who will pass on the truth………, as long as that truth does not stomp on their toes!
And speaking of Prayer. I launched a website Pray for My Child to have people send in requests for Prayer for their Children and to Sign Up to be a Prayer Warrior. There have been THOUSANDS of visits, but only a dozen or so people (as of the date of this writing 8/5/2018) who have signed up to Pray, and only a few Prayer Requests!!! It’s free! It does not cost anything! People are to busy and just don’t give a damn about their own families!!
1st Peter 5:2 “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;”
You watch. The Apostate Prosperity Pimps who rule the air waves on these supposed Christian channels will come out in force to fight having to pay taxes. Why? Because it will hit them where it hurts the most, their wallet, their “Filthy Lucre” (money, especially when gained in a dishonest or dishonorable way.)
SOME of those Apostate Prosperity Pimps, the wolves in sheep’s clothing, are encamped around the President. They have his ear and he is NOT getting the True Gospel. Probably why he is not Born Again, his wife is a Catholic, and his daughter is practicing Judaism! No telling what the other kids are into!
Just an aside note, Jared Kushner is selling his “devil tower” at 666 Madison Ave. NY! There’s a lot these mega rich folk are into that only comes to light when their satanic cohorts in the fake news outlets want to throw them under the bus! As long as they put money in the kitty and go along with the global agenda, they’re like safe cockroaches hiding in the shadows! I say spray them, get them into the light and squash the hell out of them!
Now I have gone a pissed you off by telling you the Truth about the President, his family and the Wolves around him. Well that is to damn bad and I suggest you go and talk to my boss about it. HE can be contacted through Prayer if you are Born Again. BTW, my household SUPPORTS the President and prays daily for the country. We pray that God will open the eyes of all of those around the President. Family, Staff, Clergy, Security etc! If you are NOT praying for ALL of their Salvation, then you are disobeying God and are NOT helping them!
2nd Corinthians 4:3-5 “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
If you profess to be a Christian and talk the talk, Walk it too people!!
2nd Corinthians 6:14-18 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”
Most people are practicing Churchianity.
Churchianity is the devolution of Christianity into a mutual admiration society, a social club, which stresses adapting to the modern world instead of purging the evils out of this world. Instead of being driven by the ideas of exposing and opposing sin and eradicating evil, Churchianity strives make the pew occupants feel good about themselves while society self-destructs. Churchianity has abandoned the Ten Commandments in favor of promoting Self-Help, amplified with Bible verses. The Book of Revelation actually predicted this development, calling it the “Church of laodicea,” the church of lukewarm people.
That is mere Religion it has no power and is as dead as a Mausoleum! Religion is: “People doing Christian activity based on the thinking and concepts of Man”! (the late Mickey Bonner Sr.) It’s death folks!
Churchianity is Failing, Christianity is Holding: 80% of Americans Believe in God yet they don’t go to Church
I don’t blame folks for not going to the social clubs. They are NOT receiving the Gospel in most of them anyway!
Christian Journal – Studies conducted by the Pew Research Center indicate that eighty percent of Americans claim belief in God, yet church participation rate is declining.
Across the board, Americans are in fact holding onto faith but not the church. The question then is why?
Remarkably, the reasoning behind such is rather simple. Americans and others who hold onto a belief in God do not identify with the current state of the Church.
Furthermore, a previous study conducted by Landon Schnabel and Sean Bock titled; ‘The Persistent and Exceptional Intensity of American Religion: A Response to Recent Research,’ claims a similar fate for American Churches.
However, this study indicates that Christians in America are not giving up on the Church entirely, instead, they are leaving the larger, more liberal churches for more conservative ones.
Regardless of the studies, it is evident that a generational change is occurring within the Church. Further, previous generations viewed going to church as mandatory, today’s generations see church attendance as optional. Church attendance may also be declining because of busier schedules and the availability of online sermons. See more at the Christian Journal
So if you claim to be a Christian and are just playing church, how about taking this to heart. Get saved if you are not, Humble yourself, turn from your wicked ways, ask God to forgive you and start praying in earnest for your family and country!
2nd Chronicles 7:14-15 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.”
If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!
The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.
The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!
Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
