Before It’s News – by Lisa Haven
Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego were tossed into a fiery furnace because they would not bow to an Idol. However, they were the only ones who stood in start opposition to what the king demanded of his people. Everyone else caved under pressured and bowed out of fear of being thrown into the furnace. Sadly, this is exactly what we see happening today. Many churches are ‘caving under the pressure’ of the government and allowing them to limit what they can and can’t say.
How is this happening? By a little thing called the 501c3. To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates (Proof Here).
In other words, churches are not allowed to participate in any campaign or promote any candidate, even if that candidate is a Christian. As a result our politics have gone to the crapper and furthermore, this is why Christians in government are few and far between. Since no one is backing them, they don’t win, which is exactly what our government wanted. Churches caving under pressure and as result evil has won the White House, The House of Representatives, Congress, and the Judicial system.
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bears rule, the people mourn.” Prov. 29:2
So Yes! I mix religion and politics, because politics keeps intruding upon my religious freedoms! Therefore I will stand in stark opposition to things that hinder what the church can or can’t say, because eventually they will add more verbiage to these documents, and more of our freedoms will ripped from us. It is only a matter of time. As of now, the government has begun their invasion on the churches….starting with the 501c3….
“…look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who are trustworthy and hate a bribe, and men over the people as chiefs of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens.…” Exodus
*Note – Not all Churches are ‘caving under pressure’ but some are. There are some good ones out there.

The answer is so simple do not renew your corporate status. Come together and stand. You don’t need stuff. Christ had no stuff. I am not a Christian nor will I join any church but this is ridiculous. Separation means just that. I know separation is not in the Freedom of Religion amendment, somebody made that up. However, many believe this bullsheeet. Do you have any idea what role the church played in the Revolution? Stand together.
This is a re-hashed article from the 1960’s. The author should be charged with palgarism.
The churches in this befoulded nation have been silent since 1954 when the Johnson amendment was passes by the U.S. Congress desinating tax exempt status under the “new” IRS codes, 501(c)(3). This is the same LBJ who may have assassinated President John Kennedy in 1963.
The scam worked and now all churches are contracted through the federal government in order to avoid taxes and especially property taxes. That’s the truth.

WRONG. That’s NOT the truth.
I currently attend Calvary Chapel South Bay, a NON 501(c)(3) church.. ALL of the Calvary Chapel churches in SoCal are NON 501(c)(3).
This “news” is a few years old, but regardless, the faithful need to abandon their government-controlled churches, as well as the money-hungry pastors who are willing to compromise their message to serve an evil government, rather than the creator. What is “the Word” if a tyrannical government can twist it to suit their evil ends?
How about the Obama Bible? Is that next? Maybe some new Obama/Zionist commandments?
1. Thou shalt steal for the bankers
2. Thou shalt murder all who stand in the way of profits
3. Thou shalt molest any ass you covet
4. Bearing false witness is good for business
5. Honor thy father and mother by ratting them out to the cops.
6. Forget the sabbath and be a slave everyday of your life.
That’s all the commandments you get because they cost money, and you can’t afford ten of them.
