When Jesus taught, back in his day, he never had kind words for Jewish leadership or the Roman government. His advice “render unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar.” If Caesar owned something, then Caesar had a right to do with it as he pleased. But he also said “render unto God what is God’s.” God owns the church not Caesar. Why then would you want to give something to Caesar that does not belong to him? You wouldn’t.
Yet the churches of today have stupidly given to Caesar what does not belong to him. That is, in essence, what the IRS rules for 501C3 does. By taking the tax exempt status given by the 501C3, the church hands its ownership over to the IRS and steals it from God. That is a blatant violation of what Jesus taught. The church belongs to God not to Caesar.
God will punish those political hacks and attorneys that have convinced the church, and church denominations to “protect” themselves with the 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. What these back-stabbing charlatans did was avoid telling the churches what would be the penalties for failing to follow the IRS rules. In the early years of the IRS “giving” churches the tax exempt status; no one mentioned what the result would be for violating any part of the 501(c)(3) rules. They are very strict and explicit; however, they did not in the early years make a point to enforce those rules. (i.e. give enough rope??) But in recent years (with socialist insistence) these rules are being enforced more stringently. There are several court cases where churches have lost the 501(c)(3) status and have had huge fines and levies issued or forced the violator to close its doors. How many churches have a resident tax attorney as a member of their staff? With most churches, the IRS can easily find multiple violations. In part 2, we will expound on these cases.
“With most churches, the IRS can easily find multiple violations.” To many people in churches today, this might seem farfetched. What follows is just a peek into the “violations” statement made above.
“Churches that meet the requirements of IRC Section 501(c)(3) are automatically considered tax exempt and are not required to apply for and obtain recognition of tax-exempt status from the IRS.” This statement is taken out of Section 501(C) (3) document on the IRS website. Key wording “meet the requirements of” means that if a church applies for Section 501(C) (3) status, it “meet(s) the requirements of” the IRS. Any inquiry, formal or informal, puts a church under the jurisdiction of the IRS codes. In other words, you ask, you are. When you become subject to IRS Section 501(C) (3) status you can be held in violation of one or more of 56 specific violations.
The following is a short list of “violations:” (* designates a violation)
*Say or publish anything negative about ANY politician, Republican or Democrat. *Criticize government agencies and bureaus – the IRS, FBI, BATF, CIA,EPA, DEA, OSHA, DOJ, etc. *Encourage citizens to call or write their congressman, senator, governor, mayor, or other public official. *Criticize any proposed or pending bill or legislation that would take away the rights and freedoms of the people. *Expose or criticize the New Age Movement. *Support or encourage a law-abiding citizens militia (even though this is constitutional). *Support or encourage the Second Amendment, the right of the people to keep and bear arms. *Identify homosexuality as a sin and an abomination to God. *Say anything positive about the “religious right” or the “patriot movement.” *Support home schooling, home churches, or unregistered churches. *Expose false teachings of any kind by anyone. *MAY NOT engage in activities “opposing pornography.”
The complete list of 56 violations can be found on the following website: https://warriorsoftheruwach.com/501c3 Any IRS Section 501(C) (3) church is an apostate church. They are OWNED by the IRS. The leadership of many modern churches and denominations are tools of the IRS. After reading this post today, any church member who attends an IRS Section 501(C) (3) approved church is an apostate. God will hold him or her totally responsible. This is what modern church leadership has done to God’s church. Do you think HE will be happy about it?
Author’s last comments on the Apostate Church
This will be my last post on this subject. There are many reasons, but I will list a few: 1) Facebook censorship, 2) Government strangling of religious freedom, 3) Apostate Church Education counteraction, 4) Apostate Church resistance, 5) Church Apathy to Truth. This series of posts on this subject were posted on Facebook. They were not well received.
The IRS section 501(c)(3) has gutted the power of the Bible to change society for the better. Liberals today would rather be enslaved to a foreign power rather than uphold the Constitution and the moral values that are taught in God’s Word. As true believers die off, you will see a future America that will more likely resemble Russian Socialism than American Independence. This will come because the church has become the slave of the government, (thanks to L.B.J), rather than a power force to resist an evil society.
The IRS section 501(c)(3) is a Trojan horse. How so? It supposedly allowed the church the gift of allowing members to make donations to the church and then take those gifts off their taxes. Sounds good right? What the crooked politicians did not tell the churches was that those tax deductible gifts would cost them dearly. Those “gifts” became the Trojan horse that allowed the IRS to gain control over what churches could and could not do. The noose is tightening to the point the IRS says do it or lose your status as a section 501(c)(3) and then be shut down by the IRS for multiple violations. Simply, it is do it or die. Then the church will be under tighter government controls. The churches will be slaves of the government.
When Israel would forsake God, He would allow them to be enslaved until they repented and ask Him for forgiveness. The USA is not Israel. The church of today does not believe in the God of the Bible. It has been stripped of its power and is slowly being strangled. When the end comes human beings will know the full power of evil domination. There will be no mercy. There will be no grace. All that will exist will be enslavement to a social nightmare. Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus!
