        The times we live in are perilous. Our way of life is under direct attack and
        Armageddon could be thrust upon us at any time. There, I do not have the
        time mince words and I will be clear, there is an overwhelming chance that
        your pastor is not your friend.

                                       Pastor Greg Tucker
        I recently condemned pastors who support and lead churches who “enjoy” the
        501-C-3 tax exempt status offered by the IRS. This prompted Pastor Greg
        Tucker to publicly criticize my stance on this issue and he demanded to know
        what pastors I was attacking. This article will make it clear who I am attacking
        and why the vast majority of you who are reading this words need to leave
        your church if you truly value the salvation of your soul.

        Pastor Tucker has seen fit to take me to task for my comments regarding my
        advice for all Christian believers should leave their church if that church is a
        tax-exempt 501-C-3. Pastor Tucker said “…Not sure which pastors you are

        implicating, but I would suggest not including ALL pastors in your expression
        as you have in this article”. Pastor Tucker, let’s be clear. I am implicating all
        pastors of 501-C-3 churches. Are you such a pastor who is endangering
        the salvation of your flock?

        From Pastor Tucker:



                   “Point of emphasis…Not sure which pastors you are
                   implicating, but I would suggest not including ALL pastors in
                   your expression as you have in this article. This is a
                   wrongheaded assumption. This pastor for one has spent the
                   last two years bringing my leaders congregation along in
                   developing a watchful eye of what I see coming; occupying
                   (words of Jesus) our space; time in the way He leads us to do
                   so. So to lump me as a pastor in wrong headed assumptions
                   like you have here is a big mistake. For me it invalidates your
                   message. Makes me raise the question, “What other wrong
                   headed assumptions are you building your argument on?” And
                   I’ve been an avid reader of your posts for some time now–but
                   will reconsider this, maybe I was the one making a wrong-
                   headed assumption myself about you; your message.
                   Disheartening to say the least–not all pastors; churches fit the
                   picture you paint of us; you should acknowledge such. Tactics                     Rep. Gowdy: 'I Have Evide

                                                             because it is your Christian duty to
                                                             do so under Romans 13?

                                                             The modern interpretation of
                                                             Romans 13 is pure blasphemy.
                                                             This scripture has been morphed
                                                             into a doctrine espousing the
                                                             “Divine Right of Kings” in which
        God has somehow chosen a king to ruthlessly rule over a people and it is
        incumbent upon the people to accept their “God-given fate”, The flock are
        commanded to “…submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no
        authority except that which God has established.” This false interpretation is
        nothing but a divine coronation of a ruthless, self-serving government and
        Christians are expected to capitulate and honor the same kind of thievery,
        lawlessness and murder which inspired Jesus to expel the moneychangers
        from the Temple.

                What Kind of God Would Do the Following?
        As I contemplate what many of the churches will be like as they embrace a
        perverted interpretation of Romans 13, I am left wondering what kind of God
        would condone the horrific abuses being perpetrated by the Obama
        administration? What kind of God would command its religious leaders to
        simply ignore the American Holocaust which has witnessed the murder of over
        50 million American babies, since Roe v. Wade, in 1973? What kind of God
        would not have its clergy and its followers fail to condemn the bankster
        controlled wars of American imperialism which have resulted in the
        unnecessary deaths of millions of human beings? What kind of God would fail
        to command his clergy to not speak out and to condemn the actions of the
        criminal money changers on Wall Street, who inspired only by the love of
        money, continue their heinous assaults upon humanity in the form of unlabeled
        poisonous GMO’s, the theft of solvent home mortgages by the mega banks,
        and the secret detentions and the murder of American citizens under the
        NDAA. What kind of God would order his followers to remain silent as the
        bankster controlled government plans to commence a world war starting with
        Ukraine in order to support the preservation of the Petrodollar which will result
        in the potential death of billions of human beings?

        In actuality, no God of the Bible would ever command his followers to both
        enable and to serve the evil which permeates our government. For any church
        that encourages complete obedience to a corrupt government has taken a big
        step towards accepting the Mark of the Beast. This is a very dangerous
        precedent, and this could potentially imperil the salvation of millions if
        Christians allow this false doctrine to expand across our nation’s churches. To
        Pastor Greg Tucker, in answer to your question, I condemn all purveyors of

        this false doctrine which is a perversion of the Bible.

                              The Clergy Response Team
        Many of your 501-C-3 pastors have gone so far as to put on the uniform of the
        enemy. The Clergy Response Team falls under the umbrella series of
        programs known as National Voluntary Organizations Active in
        Disaster (NOVAD) which is a non-profit, member organization which shares
        knowledge and resources throughout a disaster. The organization helps to
        prepare, respond, recover and to mitigate the damage caused by some
        unknown disaster presumably which lies in the future of humanity.

        Amazingly, NOVAD claims to be a faith-based coalition which is structured as
        a non-governmental organization and operates on a national scale and is
        supported by tax dollars funneled to DHS.

        Instantly, Bible believing Christians should smell a rat. Since when, in the
        modern era, has the federal government ever sponsored organized
        religion? The answer is not since well before the advent of the atheist activist,
        Madalyn Murray O’Hair, who was successful in banning prayer in the public
        schools in 1963. Then why would the government suddenly fund and support a
        “faith-based organization” on a national scale? The simple answer is that
        Homeland Security is seeking to control our churches and ministers, before the
        impending train wreck comes to fruition inside of America. DHS desperately is
        seeking to control all Christians through the perversion of Romans 13 and this
        is one of two cornerstones in this movement designed to control Christian
        leaders. And this government foothold into the control of our churches begins
        with accepting the 501-C-3 tax exempt status which gives the government
        license to control the message and to ultimately pervert the word of God.

        Pastor Tucker, I condemn all men of the cloth who would lead their believers
        astray.

                              What Is the Root of All Evil?
        God-fearing Christians must wonder why so many of our religious leaders have
        forsaken the religious roots of their obedience to the word of God and espouse
        an unquestioning faith in government. The answer is surprisingly simple as
        every Christian knows that the root of all evil is the love of money. If your
        church is a 501(c)(3) organization, then your church has a significant financial
        motivation to not truthfully interpret the true message of the Bible. The tax
        exempt status of being a 501(c)(3) organization is the other cornerstone of this
        shift away from allegiance to God and towards worshiping our new Savior, the
        federal government.



                   According to the Internal Revenue Service, no substantial
                   part of a religious, tax exempt church may engage in any
                   activity which may be attempting to influence legislation

                   and the church may not intervene in political campaigns.
                   In other words, if the government decides to secretly
                   disappear dissidents, the church must remain silent or
                   risk losing its tax exemption. If the government continues
                   to expand its infanticide policies by extending the murder
                   of babies to include post-delivery abortion, then the
                   church must remain silent. If the government engages in
                   any heinous, genocidal act, such as the murder of 1.2
                   million Iraqi’s, under the false pretense of looking for
                   weapons of mass destruction, the church must remain
                   silent or risk losing the tax advantages for being a 501
                   (c)(3) tax exempt organization.



        Combine the 501 (c)(3) financial motivation with the DHS inspired NOVAD
        directive for clergy to remind their flocks of their Christian duty to obey their
        government under any and all conditions, we are witnessing the neutering of
        our most precious institution and the ultimate salvation of millions could hang
        in the balance.

                   Christians Must Rescue Their Churches
                   From the Clutches of DHS and the IRS
        Is your church a 501 (c)(3)? If it is, then realize that your fellow worshipers
        likely have a problem when it comes to worshiping in a church where the word
        of God reigns supreme against all else.

        The proof is in the pulpit. Does your religious leader teach from the Bible?
        Does he/she apply the lessons of the Bible to daily living and does not shy
        away from controversy when the actions of government violate the laws of
        God? Does your church renounce evil in all forms? Does your clergy
        encourage their congregations to oppose evil, by being faithful to the word of
        God in all areas? Does your church organize its followers to carry the word
        and the will of God to society as a whole in an effort to save the misled? Does
        your pastor denounce abortion, war, thievery, murder and all behaviors which
        violate the Ten Commandments? If not, it would be prudent to find a church in
        which the word of God is honored and unquestionably supersedes the word of
        government when the two conflict. And if you cannot find such a church, then
        you can always begin a small Bible study program with a small group of
        believers.

               Is Opposition to Tyranny Obedience to God?
        There is clearly a time when Christians should disobey civil authority. Acts
        5:27-29 states that “Having brought the apostles, they made them appear
        before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. We gave you strict
        orders not to teach in this Name,’ he said. ‘Yet you have filled Jerusalem with
        your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.’ Peter

        and the other apostles replied: ‘We must obey God rather than men!’ Could it
        be more clear that as long as the law of the land does not contradict the law of
        God, Christians are commanded to obey the government. However, if the law
        of the government contradicts God’s word, Christians are commanded to
        disobey the government and obey God’s law.

        Today’s religious leaders who bow down to the holy temple of Homeland
        Security are bought and paid for at a very cheap price. What does a church
        gain by accepting a 501 (c)(3) tax exemption? Ten Percent? Twenty Percent
        off from its tax obligation? This makes the thirty pieces of silver that Judas took
        to betray his Lord, look like a good deal. Compromised pastors should take
        warning of Judas’s ultimate fate.

               No 501-C-3 Church Can Be a Church of God
        If your church does not pass the litmus test mentioned here, then find another
        church. If you cannot find another church where the laws of God reign
        supreme over the laws of man, then start your own Bible home study group
        with a small number of believers. The latter is the safest way to worship God
        without governmental interference.

        Mark 8:39 clearly states, “What will it profit a man if he gains the whole
        world and forfeits his soul?” Mark possessed the courage to pay a price for
        his faithfulness. This kind of faithfulness should be embraced by all who claim
        to lead our congregations in the name of God.



                   The 501-C-3 tax exemption = 30 pieces of silver.



        All Pastor’s who lead 501-C-3 churches, need to fall to their knees and beg for
        God’s forgiveness for leading his flock astray through espousing the false
        doctrine of government over the King of kings. According to Yahoo Answers,
        nearly all churches are a 501-C-3 tax exempt status.

        And finally, to Pastor Greg Tucker, I have “Googled” your background. Forgive
        me sir, but you should not throw stones when you live in a glass house.

        message of truth on this very, very important issue , actually the most
        important in the world today ,is the betrayal of the phony professional
        preachers. Again if you can pay a man to tell the truth than you can pay him
        not to. The professional preachers serving two masters are and have been the
        single biggest destructive force to truth and freedom in this nations history.
        The most effective voices of hell are those that crawl after that thirty pieces of
        silver that the Godless gov dangled in front of them , and lead by twisting Gods
        word to manipulate the customers ,, I’m sorry congregation , church talk . I
        have been saying this message for years, and I thank God for people that
        have a bigger voice to carry this warning to those that LOVE TRUTH.

        I share the distress over the misuse of Romans 13:1. Perhaps this will help:
        “LET every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power (in
        the church) but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” You will
        remember that Paul claimed direct commission from the risen Christ. His
        fellows in the Apostleship (save Matthias) were ordained at the hand of Jesus
        Christ. The reference to ministers of God in verse 4 confirms the meaning of
        Romans 13 as a purely ecclesiastical doctrine. The application of Romans 13
        to civil governments makes reason stare and no good thing comes of that
        silliness.

        Dear Dave,

        This is your most positive works of art, a public message that fit’s the times
        and warns the people of their fate if they continue in the path they are going.

        All your works are treasured warnings, but this one is the gemstone of them all
        – I only hope thousands of pastors will fall to their knees and pray to turn
        America around before it is too late. Churches control the actions of millions of

        Here’s what’s gonna go down soon. A letter will go out, reminding Churches
        that in order to maintain their 501 status they can’t discriminate. This will
        include sexual orientation.

        Then homosexuals will start applying for pastor positions and every other
        position at a Church. Openly.

        What will you do then, pastor? you have to hire the homosexuals or lose your
        501 status. And that means losing your building and all your assets, since
        those are owned by the 501 corporation. You can’t just dissolve without losing
        everything.

        I’ll tell you what you are going to do. You are going to keep your mouth shut
        and hire the sodomites no matter if you like it or not.

        Or lose everything.

        I’ve actually spoken with Pastors about this. I’m told, “well we’ll just forfeit our
        501 status if that happens. Ha. If it were only that easy.

        Another one literally said “it’s not nice to poke the government with a stick”!!

        I’m looking for another Church that’s not 501. Can’t find one. It looks like home
        Churches may be the answer.

        I have to say that I am increasingly swayed toward this position. I am swayed
        toward the view that the schools, also are perverted. I was bamboozled by
        Karen Hudes, after seeing a long interview video of her. I saw subsequent
        videos and suddenly her message sounded very different –The Chinese and
        Russians are our friends and we are all working together for a brave new
        world sort of thing. So, John Rambo was probably right about her being a shill.

        As to what kind of God would do the following, the only answer I can come up
        with and probably the only correct answer is this: A God who has determined
        to bring His judgement against that nation! Given that, we do not want to be
        found in support lest we share in that judgement.
        I suppose I would be viewed as a bit of a rebel with a bad attitude. I do not
        support Sunday school nor all the programs churches have for different age
        groups etc which segregate families from each other. I believe having these big
        church buildings is also a trap. The early church did not have them. They met
        in peoples homes in most cases.
        Always remember. “where two or three are gathered together in My name,
        there I am in their midst”. So saith the Lord.
        I’m sure there is a lot of compromise in Canada too but I don’t know that it is
        along the lines of a 501c3 situation.

        Romans 13
        April 23, 2014 at 7:19 am
        Instead of believing what a pastor says, I read Romans 13 over and over. To
        me it seems to clearly state that governments are put there by God period. If
        it’s a good government, it’s because they are a God fearing nation. If it’s a bad
        government, it’s because we’ve pushed God out. It clearly states if you fight
        against the government, you are fighting against what God has put in place
        (for his own purposes). One of the main themes behind the OT that is
        reoccurring is when Israel turned to paganism, God gave them over to their
        enemies. In some cases to the point they would eat their own children out of
        hunger. This could beg the same question “why would God allow that?”. When
        Israel followed God, they prospered.

        I personally still believe whole heartedly in exposing evil and their deception.
        Getting the truth out. As far as battling against the government, there is no
        point until the country repents. Will God support a country who celebrates evil?
        We all know that isn’t going to happen. Christ said his kingdom wasn’t of this
        world. I often wonder why so many struggle so much with trying to preserve
        this world. The octopus arms of evil are entwined through everything. You’d
        have to wipe it all out completely and start over. Sound familiar?

        The first clue to a church that is all screwed up should be when the pastor
        says” “My Church”. Or adds: “My Congregation”. Or better yet: “My Pulpit”.

        One of my former pastors…when asked a question about anything…would
        always bring out his “denominational handbook” to see what the
        “denominational position” would be. NOT ONE TIME did he every reach for a
        Bible. Not one.
        The so called “Non-denominational churches” are worse. They always reach
        for the latest “hot selling book” by some author who thinks they have all the
        answers. Or some psychology book…
        There are great teachers…but you really have to want to find them. Ask God
        where to look.
        One survey states that the only reason most people go to any church…is so
        they can” have a place to be buried from.”

        I understand what you are saying – but I have to disagree at one point. I pastor
        a dominational church, we are word of God only, KJV only, and very old ways
        in everything we say and do – but years ago the IRS talked the large to small
        church groups to sign in together to get 501 3c status and they did. We are
        one of the churches caught in the loop not all churches with the status can be
        lumped and grouped together. Some of us really do not have the option now,
        despite our own standards or beliefs. Don’t throw the baby out with the bath
        water – warn yes, but over killing the point does not help the cause of Christ.

        Dave,
        THANKS FOR THIS ONE!
        I have been saying this for years, it is good to see that the message from the
        Holy Spirit is finally breaking through.

        Pastors, what was the lesson of Samuel and Saul? The lesson of the money
        changers? What was the British government more afraid of than George
        Washington’s pathetic little army? The Black Robe Regiment. Where is our
        Black Robe Regiment today? Bought and paid for with 30 pieces of silver…
        your hypocrisies rise to the heavens, you are vipers, pharisees… no different
        than in the Lord’s day! You don’t even know what Babylon the Great IS. It is
        the System of Babylon, manifested in the System of the World, led by the
        Greatest nation ever conceived by God. The Empire of the world, that fulfills
        prophecy. The System is the statue of Nebuchadnezzar, the Head of Gold on
        two legs of ideology, with the ten lost tribes divided like iron and clay. Their
        minds vs their emotions, divided by nonsense doctrines that are in love with
        The System, and worship the idol god Mammon. The System is Tripartite,
        bankers, kings and religion, interlocked, self supporting, as ONE. The Lord’s
        final battle, will become our final war.

        God did not want us to have kings, because kings take the peoples minds
        away from God and corrupt the whole nation. Where is Godly authority? In the
        men of God. Where are the Men of God? Hiding from the evil, and trimming
        their wicks, filling their lamps, selling coats of comfort and buying swords of
        truth.

        These are lessons forgotten in the land of feel good doctrines.

        Let’s think about this: The time frame is shortly after the death and
        resurrection of the Messiah. The apostles and early believers are spreading
        the word that the Messiah lives and that people can be reconciled to the
        Father! The word spreads like wildfire! Officials are alarmed at the movement
        that is taking place. Too many people organizing like that does not bode good
        for Rome; who knows what it could turn into? The Roman government decides
        to establish a law that the people supporting the Ecclesia (church) can take off
        the amount they give from the taxes owed to Rome. All that the early
        Assembly has to do is register with the Government and send in the
        information of who gives what amount. Do we really think the apostles and
        local ministry would fall for this or go along with it? I just really don’t think so.

        Adding no I don’t think this is a catch 22 – soon it will be hate speech for
        anyone to speak ill of the nwo and their plans – and it will still not be a catch
        22 the pulpit does not answer to the world but to God alone no matter what the
        newest laws in any age have ordered. Look at history this is not a unique
        place the American church and pastors now stand disobedience to laws that
        are in the word of God are never wrong or a problem

        questions and could not answer them. It is unfortunate that there is no one
        around that are “like minded believers”, but not being under the influence of
        those that blur the word of G-d, I am able to live freely to follow Yeshua
        without restraint. I believe the churches are a business and I have said for
        many years now, that they should be taxed. If they handle ceasars money,
        they should give to ceasar what he requires. Not ask ceasar for handouts.
        Since the founding of this country, the big lie is “we the people”. They are not
        “we” and I am not “we”, my allegiance is to Yeshua. Not men.

        One must agree with remarks posted by “Romans 13″.

        Though the focus of this column is that of pastors of 501C-3 churches, much is
        said regarding “what kind of God would…”. It is this last sentiment that must be
        addressed.

        Yehovah DID turn His people OVER to evil rulers. Northern Israel was replete
        with wicked rulers who followed in the path blazed by Jeroboam, son of Nebat.
        Subsequently, when northern Israel was invaded, the agent of Yehovah’s
        choice was Assyria, a profoundly corrupt and pagan nation state which
        dispersed the Israelites throughout the area of their dominion. Judah was

Why Your Pastor Is Not Your Friend | Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show

        invaded by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, of the same ilk as the Assyrians. And
        yet, through the prophet Jeremiah, the Israelites were told to PRAY FOR the
        rulers of the nation to which they had been exiled, because if that nation state
        prospered, they would prosper:

        Jeremiah 29:7 ‘Seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile,
        and pray to the LORD on its behalf; for in its welfare you will have welfare.

        Also note the “seven times” judgments to be applied to those who stubbornly
        refused to repent and turn to Yehovah as outlined in Leviticus 26:17

        ‘I will set My face against you so that you will be struck down before your
        enemies; and those who hate you will rule over you, and you will flee when no
        one is pursuing you.

        The prophetic word most assuredly makes it abundantly clear that it is
        YEHOVAH ALONE who sets rulers in place, and it is YEHOVAH ALONE who
        brings rulers to their end. The book of Daniel describes this through the
        account of King Nebuchadnezzar.

        Pity the poor ruler who holds to the “divine right” of kings, because that
        position holds that ONLY YEHOVAH can judge kings, which is most assuredly
        true. Yehovah WILL JUDGE and in righteousness and with justice. A corrupt
        ruler, no matter from which political structure, must answer for all decisions
        and choices. The barometer for righteousness in biblical Israel was for a king
        to copy, in the presence of scribes, the entirety of the Torah (Genesis through
        Deuteronomy), carry it with him always, and meditate on it daily. No ruler was
        to turn to the right or left, but ONLY follow Yehovah. When King Josiah read
        this requirement, he rent his clothing and fasted in sackcloth and ashes
        because he knew his predecessors had not obeyed this command and the
        nation would be subject to Yehovah’s fierce judgment. Judah earned a
        reprieve during Josiah’s administration, but judgment followed soon thereafter.

        Every time it is said “God wouldn’t” I fear that the entirety of Scripture has not
        been appropriated. Read the Old Testament. Yehovah is all about justice,
        whether New Testament “believers” like it or not.

        Dave Hodges, I could have not stated this fact any more poignant then you
        have. the churches have attached themselves to Baal and the fools dont even
        know it, and if they do know it, they dont care. You see, I used to attend a
        church like this, everything was lovely, good and God loves you, this was
        preached on a continual basis if when one of the senior elders was doing a
        Sunday bible study and trying to bring up the things that are going on, they
        shot him down and told him to stop it. their are no warnings about anything
        within the glass box. Its complete Whoredom along with the congregational
        members who dont want to hear it either.

        In response to your column “your pastor is not your friend” i believe the church
        i attend is 501 (c) (3) status long as i have been going there since 2001.I have
        woken up for the past 2 yrs. AND i am so upset about the fact that my pastor
        does not incorporate with scripture/The prophecy,he preaches Nothing about
        anything and i am so Frustrated,when i ask other ministers in the church Why?
        does he not preach about abortion,Doma,core education,martial law,fema
        camps? The answer i get is this? pastor has a lot of new converts in the
        church now,if he preaches this they may leave! What the hell/excuse me) does
        that mean. The word of God shakes me most of the time telling me about
        myself.what do you do stop reading God words.Gods words are so
        corrective,harsh,all with love.I am so Frustrated i really believe i just aught to
        move on.I went to other churches and none of them are preaching what is
        happening.I am tired about talking to others about what is happening,they look
        at me as if i have a second head.my brother told me that i am a conspiracy
        theorist-he told me to put some foil on my head,go sit in the corner (lol) I also
        give some friends about hagmann,steve quayle,prisonplanet, prophecy news
        etc. and they just do not want to hear about what is coming down the pike. i
        even was speaking to someone about the giants,nephillim Duh!!!! Well i
        believe i will have to leave my church and find a home bible study,and others
        who feel the same way i do.I am so glad that you wrote this article i really
        thought i was being prideful,arrogant about why i wanted to hear pastor
        speaking what is happening in the world now or,warning us at least i belive the
        only time they will understand is!!! the military knocks the doors down,take
        away the kids,and throw you into a Fema Camp is this the only way someone
        will listen.God Bless you,i enjoyed your show on hagmann and hagmann w/

        true. Dave you’ve taken a stance that begs each and every pastor to take a
        deep and penetrating look within and question whom they are really following
        in these last days. My prayer is that you will continue to follow your heart and
        publish your always Spirit directed articles.

        Dear Dave,
        Thank you for your efforts and concern to spread the Gospel, but please do
        not distort the facts as you do so. You are not giving the full text of the IRS
        code regarding 501(c)3 exemptions for religious and charitable organizations:
        http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-Profits/Charitable-Organizations/Exemption-
        Requirements-Section-501(c)(3)-Organizations
        It is also not against the law to speak out against the evil of abortion, or unjust
        laws.
        http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Item/1891/the_church_nonprofits_and_taxes.aspx


        In any case, what is first and paramount is to spread the Gospel of our Lord
        Jesus Christ and obey his commandments. Jesus said: ‘If you Love Me, you
        will obey My commandments’ John 14:15. Jesus also said: ‘For this I was born
        and for this I came into the world, to bear witness to the Truth. Everyone who
        is of the Truth hears my voice.’ John 18:37. So lets us spread the Gospel of
        the Truth.
        May the Lord Bless you and give you His Peace.

        This country was founded by people in pursuit of freedom. Religious freedom
        predominantly. When the British Empire tightened its grip, the outcry was
        ‘heard in the churches’!!! Out spoken priests, pastors and ministers ALL.
        Unless they sided with the Brits. IF any priest, pastor or minister attempts to
        convince me that Romans 13 is a DIRECT ORDER FROM GOD to be
        obedient to tryanny, I will add the punctuation mark by punching him/her right
        in the head. I cannot attend a church because when I do I feel sick hearing the
        HYPROCRISY, DELIBERATE AVOIDANCE AND EXCUSES for preaching the
        nicey nice sermon over TRUTH. AND YES PASTOR, I will call you out in front
        of ‘your’ congregation. The bending over backwards to be ‘politically correct’,
        because HE would, is beyond pathetic. Yes The Lord preached Love. BUT, He
        didn’t say I come bringing hugs. He specifically stated He comes with sword.

        Without 501c3 Tax-exempt charitable contributions could not be sustained.

        IN bringing this to its present situation if the following is true: (1) Have you ever
        filed your income tax claiming tax deductions for charitable contributions to
        your church? (2) After filing your 1040 form, Have you ever received a tax
        refund because you claimed a tax deduction for your charitable contributions to
        your church. Let’s not be hypocrites. It wasn’t the pastors who enacted 501c3
        status to their churches.

        The Romans 13 scripture is -not- requiring us to obey and pay taxes to
        ecclesiastical powers (which God ordains) but world powers ( which God also
        ordains). Jesus says it another way, “Let your light so shine before men, that
        they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
        Here ‘men’ means those that are without (i.e. outside the faith). Peter echoes
        Jesus in saying, “Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that,
        whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works,
        which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.”

        for reference:

        Romans 13
        1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but
        of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
        2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God:
        and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
        3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not
        be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of
        the same:
        4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is
        evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of
        God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
        5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for
        conscience sake.
        6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending
        continually upon this very thing.
        7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to
        whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

        Pharoah put the “rule” in “Ruler” over Egyptian Jews who were forced to build
        his empire. God commissioned Moses to represent Him in the fight to free His
        chosen people from tyranny. Pharoah and Egypt were basically destroyed by
        God in the process. Now, does that sound like God wants his children, both
        Jew and Gentile, to slavishly bow down to any corrupt ruler and his/her
        government henchmen? Not in any type of situation . . . workplace, police,
        schools, churches, and especially not corrupt governments . . . does God want
        his children to suffer under the rule of tyranny.

        powers invested in me as a Officer of the STATE of – and as a minister of the

        Dave you have hit the mark on this one. Unfortunately by the time the majority
        of Pastors and their flock realize they have been enslaved by the 501-C3 it will
        be much too late. The govt is already legislating away free speech both inside
        and outside the church. Just start reading the news. No more govt “manna” for
        those that speak out. It’s all about the money now. Jesus threw the money

        I think a lot of people just aren’t informed enough. Tax exempt churches
        certainly aren’t part of the solution. Ever since I learned about this I’ve been on
        a mission to learn more. Studying a little bit about sovereignty took me great
        lengths on my quest for knowledge. My wife and I got married without a
        marriage license thanks to the only non exempt church I was able to find in the
        whole state. The pastor is a true patriot and a man on god. Most people would
        not like his sermons because he is so up front and blunt about gods word, like
        it should be. There’s no bush to beat around. He made quite a few people
        uncomfortable at our wedding ceremony! Some people claim that we’re not
        really married but I just look at them and ask, “whose marriage is more
        legitimate, a gay couple with a marriage license, or a man and a woman
        without a license?” Just goes to show you how statist people are nowadays. Its
        sad really. People can’t think for themselves.

        a lot of backlash from the “disorganized” church. I am also sure that you know
        how to handle this backlash.
        As Craig Mouldey pointed out in his earlier comment and as you have
        suggested, the 1st century church made a habit of meeting in smaller groups
        at followers homes. Anyone who reads the book of Acts will see that this is an
        obvious key to the success of their outreach in those times. A very heavy-

        it’s government now. It is time to take the church back where it belongs – in
        the homes of the believers in smaller groups where the needs of each
        individual believer can be met. These are some verses that show this truth
        very plainly – (Acts 2:46, 5:42, 12:12, 20:20, 28:30, Romans 16:5, I Corinthians

        Outside of suggesting that God is your government, Romans 13 doesn’t
        suggest who your government is or should be.

        How does a government become your government? There are only a handful
        of ways.

        You might have been born under and in a particular government.

        You might have personally selected a government for yourself.

        You might be in a hostage situation, where someone else is literally controlling
        you. If so, they are your government, at least temporarily.

        If the United States is your government, you do not have to remain. It might be
        a job getting out of it, but you can do it. There is no law against it. In fact, you
        can get out and still remain on the land, because the United States and the
        President were never meant to be you dictator or king. They do NOT have the
        authority to be such. But it will take some study of the law to see that the
        government is not the land, and how to do this, and how to straighten them out
        when they suggest otherwise.

        If you want to do this, get online and learn from people who are doing it all
        over the place. Find out that you can pay your income tax bill, legally, by
        converting the bill into a money order – Accepted for Value – and paying the
        bill with the bill, why it’s legal, and why there actually is no other way, because
        money doesn’t exist, so you CAN’T pay your bill with money.

        Your pastor may not be the one who controls whether or not your church is a
        501-C-3 corporation. In fact, he may be ignorant about the whole proposition.
        But once he learns, if he doesn’t attempt to train the church council into the
        correct way, then he must leave and form his own church if he is a good
        pastor.

        What is the correct way? There isn’t only one. The congregation could form a
        trust with the members of the church council becoming the trustees, and the

        mission field as the beneficiaries. Then, make the trust into a Charitable
        Religious Trust, a 508(c)(1)(A) trust, rather than a 501-C-3. This makes your
        trust tax “EXCEPTED” rather than tax “EXEMPT,” completely outside of IRS
        laws. If you must use a regular corporation to receive money donations,
        because they won’t allow a bank account for your trust, make the corporation a
        501-C-3, and donate all the funds it receives from congregation gifts and
        donations, to the trust.

        Study. It’s in the law.

        I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and
        white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy

        without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

        understanding.

        You need to by the truth from Jesus him self Dave, which is done with a
        broken heart calling upon his name for mercy.

        If you have not received the gift of faith in the Sacrifice for sins by calling upon
        the name of the Lord Jesus in the fear of him(God); you are an unbeliever
        according to the scriptures and will be condemned when he returns and judges
        the world.(yes, this will also be the time the dead are raised, some to glory and
        many to condemnation(the second death): as it is written:

        Matthew 16:28
        Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of
        death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

        ETERNAL DEATH.

        I am here if anyone has questions.. Dave, I know already the wrath of Jesus
        abides on you as it does everyone else I have met professing Christ.

        What I see is churches speaking generally about the sanctity of life and service
        to the poor, praying for “our troops” and “our leaders”, but never for the Iraqis
        or Afghans that are at the other end of the bomb. To do so would implicitly
        criticize our government, which is what they are doing when they invoke
        prayers for our leaders and our troops.

        I just never ironed out in my mind whether this is because they are afraid of
        offending patriots in the congregation, or afraid of crossing the government.

        In my opinion, churches became irrelevant when they permitted legalized
        infanticide (abortion), prayer and Bible removal from schools, and
        implementation of other authoritarian/Orwellian ‘laws’.

        There is NO reason why the churches could not have opposed these hellish
        measures. Even now, church leaders only give lip service to these matters, but
        none take their entire congregations to the State and Federal Government
        Houses to demand that these insidious assaults upon both God’s laws and our
        own Constitution be stopped. Nope, it’s much easier to just cash their
        paychecks and keep Christ’s flock lulled to sleep with doctrineless songs and
        sermonettes, and sports programs to replace prayer vigils.

        Much prayer, much power. Little prayer, little power. No prayer, no power.
        Any guess on the where the American church is on the prayer barometer?

        For the reasons you have listed here, the authority of the church has been
        removed and given to the Sons of God. For those who can hear, they know
        this to be true. EVERYTHING that is wrong about the systematic church will
        be reconciled by those who are chosen for this time and season. They are
        beginning to know who they are. There is much reason to rejoice.

        The complacent, systematic church chewed up and spit out every single
        believer that God sent into them for the last 30 years. Do you think God will
        hold them guiltless? NO! Do you think that God will hold the believer who
        voted for an abortion candidate guiltless? The guilt of many politicians is upon
        the heads of those who complied through fear or for personal gain. Will the
        cowards inherit the Kingdom of God? No, they won’t. When I realized this, I
        repented of my support of even right wing candidates that operated the war
        machine without mercy. Restoration of our nation starts in the church. It is
        wholly accountable for the sin and the destruction because it rejected its
        mandate to exercize authority righteously.

        As I have stated before, Jesus called the religious leadership, political
        leadership & the scribes/ lawyers of His day Vipers.
        It was right after he chased & beat the money changes/banksters out of the
        temple, that these 4 large groups had Him crucified.

        The pastors 501 C-3 status does just the opposite, these pastors have been
        silenced by their actions.

        The tithe was designated for the poor & downtrodden of the church. Today it is
        used for salaries & buildings, while Jesus said he would not inhabit a building
        made by man again.

        The 11 apostles that were left picked the 12th apostle, Mathias. The self
        appointed 13th apostle Paul is a false apostle who presumptuously took the
        title “apostle” to himself.

        Jesus told the military man that He wished that His group would obey like the
        military group. Which means:
        1. The military group is not in Jesus’s group.
        2. Jesus’s group is disobedient.

        The only large group that has not been judged is the military. But I believe
        they are in the process of selling their soul also, because they are going along
        with the wicked management of this country.

        It was John the Revelator who pointed out the False Prophet News Media,
        who coverup & cheerlead for all the large groups.

        so if my church goes around to help give vaccines to impoverished
        children…..this sounds very evil to do, since vaccines are so bad for us ?

        This makes sense to me, except for one thing. When we pay taxes to the
        federal government, we are contributing to the largest, most heinous criminal
        syndicate in the history of mankind. Our money funds mass murder and rape,
        torture, the poisoning of all of humanity and the destruction of our
        ecosystems…. So it seems to me that each of us has a moral obligation not to
        fund this enterprise, however we may achieve that goal. It is not clear to me
        how a church could resist funding the government, and still operate, without
        taking advantage of a tax-exempt status. Perhaps their financial operation
        would simply need to be small enough that there was no tax involved, or they
        could break the “law” and risk the consequences. However, thank you for this
        article — it makes the conflict of interest quite clear.
