Did you know ALL churches who are 501(c)(3) tax exempted are controled by the U.S. Government?


If your church has the 501(c)(3) tax exemption then the clergy of these churches CAN NOT speak out against Government officals who support laws which violate a number of bible principals. Also the clergies of churches can not show support for or against a polical parties or speak out directly against the president and other members of government if his/her policies are in direct conflict with the bible. And did you know that if or should a clergy speak out to their members againts the president and/or govement officals is grounds for the governmet to remove the 501 (c)(3) tax exemption status.

    It's not a matter of the polical arena. It's a matter of right and wrong. And most clergy who relie on the 501 (c)(3) tax exempltion for their "church" are greedy and cowards. Thanks for your answer.

    dashingscorpio- It's my opinion that no church should received 501(c)(3). This code prevents them from speaking out against issue that Government or Government officals support that is in violation of bible principals. Its money churches care about.

    If the Church is a business, then what does it make of the people who attend it?

    Merchandise!

    The limitations only apply if you are in the tax-exempt status. If the church pays taxes on its income, then it can preach whatever the hell it wants.
