501 c3 A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing- UPDATED 7/2/15

UPDATE 7/2/2015: Government Crusade Against Churches Begins With Removal Of Non-Profit Status - Click HERE To Read


CHURCHES IN AMERICA ARE NOT REQUIRED TO HAVE A 501c 3 STATUS TO BE TAX EXEMPT OR TO RECEIVE TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS

Repeat: CHURCHES IN AMERICA ARE NOT REQUIRED TO HAVE A 501c 3 STATUS TO BE TAX EXEMPT OR TO RECEIVE TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS

Repeat Again: CHURCHES IN AMERICA ARE NOT REQUIRED TO HAVE A 501c 3 STATUS TO BE TAX EXEMPT OR TO RECEIVE TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS

The Founding Fathers assured that the Church would always be separate from the state and thus not regulated nor controlled by it. Churches are inherently exempt from IRS control or regulation. In a word, the Church does not need the permission nor approval of the United States Government to exist or operate.

Then why has the Eastern Orthodox Church and all SCOBA jurisdictions, and many True Orthodox Churches sold their souls and futures to the government by way of asking the United States Government for permission to exist, thus being regulated by its mandates? This has been done by voluntarily becoming 501c 3 Corporations. The Church would do well to incorporate the words of our Lord:


"Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's,and to God the things that are God's." Matt 22:21

"I am not the only IRS employee who’s wondered why churches go to the government and seek permission to be exempted from a tax they didn’t owe to begin with, and to seek a tax deductible status that they’ve always had anyway. Many of us have marveled at how church leaders want to be regulated and controlled by an agency of government that most Americans have prayed would just get out of their lives. Churches are in an amazingly unique position, but they don’t seem to know or appreciate the implications of what it would mean to be free of government control." (from the Forward of In Caesar's Grip, by Peter Kershaw)

"It is impossible to have religious freedom in any nation where churches are licensed to the government. George Hansen, Member of Congress (ret.)

"When a church accepts the 501c 3 status, that church:
  • Waives its freedom of speech.
  • Waives its freedom of religion.
  • Waives its right to influence legislators and the legislation they craft.
  • Waives its constitutionally guaranteed rights.
  • Is no longer free to speak to the vital issues of the day.
  • Becomes controlled by a spirit of fear that if it doesn’t toe the line with the IRS it will lose its tax-exempt status.
  • Becomes a State-Church.
From this case we learn that:
  • A corporation is “a creature of the State.”
  • The State is "sovereign" over the corporation.
  • The corporation is “incorporated for the benefit of the public.”
  • corporation is a State “franchise.”
  • Incorporation is a State “privilege.”
  • A corporation is “subject to the laws of the State.”
  • “Its powers are limited by law.”
  • It must “obey the laws of its creation.”
  • A corporation has no constitutionally-protected rights." (From Hushmoney.org)
Here is the IRS Code § 508(c)(1)(A) concerning Churches:


Special rules with respect to section 501 (c)(3) organizations

(a) New organizations must notify secretary that they are applying for recognition of section 501 (c) (3) status 


c) Exceptions

(1) Mandatory exceptions. Subsections (a) and (b) shall not apply to-

(A) churches, their integrated auxiliaries, and conventions or associations of churches



The IRS code for churches simply states that, 

THERE IS NO IRS CODE FOR CHURCHES!

Notice that the IRS code does not say churches are "exempt", it says they are EXCEPTIONS to the IRS Government regulation. The IRS has no authority to "exempt" churches. It is not for them to say. The reason is:


"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…"



The Church's sovereign authority is God. So, once again, why are Orthodox Churches in America 501c 3's?

All Metropolitans of all jurisdictions in the United States, all SCOBA representatives, priests, churches, missions, foundations of the One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, the Orthodox Church, should remove themselves from the control of the United States Government, resending their 501c 3 status. Do not listen to tax experts or attorneys who may tell you "501c 3's are a good thing and allows the church many liberties". They are either deceived or are deceivers. They are, in effect, wolves in sheep's clothing. They would have you sell your birthright for a mess of pottage.


The continued oppression of the Church in America will continue as subterfuge. 

All religion is being systematically removed from government and public life along with participation of Christian individuals and entities. Any and all things Christian that do not accept the politically correct morality will be deemed as breaking the law. It will in effect become illegal to speak or practice any form of public Christianity. It is the oppressed Christians of other countries of the world who look at the Christians in the United States and say, 


"You fools! Do you not see. Have you not learned from our demise, our plight, our oppression?"


The blindness that has allowed many churches of the United States of America to come under government domination has extended to the Orthodox Church. The Orthodox Church should lead out in this effort for all peoples of faith to break free of the legal government entanglement, for there will come a time when the noose will be tightened, the rules rewritten based on popular practice and the snare will be set. The Church has been of such little effect in America, allowing it to descend into the depths of depravity and humanistic control because the Church has partnered with evil, submitting to other gods. For those Christians who would refer to Paul's admonition in Romans Chapter 13 that "whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God" and to "render to all their due: taxes to who taxes are due...need to realize that in America, where the Church is concerned, THEY ARE NOT DUE! The church is God's not Caesar's. To be married to the state in this way is for the bride of Christ to commit adultery.

Patriarchs! Metropolitans! Bishops! Priests! Deacons! Laymen! Purify the body of Christ and be holy even as He is holy. Lift up your voices in your meetings, your counsels, your churches, your seminaries, to free the Church from the voluntary submission to the domination of an entity other than the God we serve. In this way the Church will flourish in this country and hearts and governments will be revived to the will of God.

Be in this world but not of it.
