Most Christians have no idea that their churches have SOLD OUT to the IRS (Satan)
churches are tax exempt by Law! We all know that, but Satan never gives up on Every angle possible!
So what am I talking about: no matter what you feel about your church, you should find out the truth about your church....
It's called IRS tax-exempt 501c3.... Churches may get extra exemptions by this but, Some churches do it out of fear! We know Satan is fear...
There is an evil group which goes by the name of Dr Michael chitwood who calls himself "the authority" who "helps" church become compliant with the IRS.... Only thing is their already compliant.... But mr chitwood wants them TK gi the extra mile for safety!!! He uses scare tatics about preachers (all church workers - ALL) that they need to be sure or prison could happen to them... He uses other preachers to drive this point home.... Everyone a false teacher! Like mike murdock for instance...
Note that this 501c3 isn't mandatory as you have to send in an application to be approved (or not) by the IRS...
So what's your church (yep I bet YOUR CHURCH)done? See your church is considered a Coorporation by the state:If it has a board of directors, it's a corporation!
According to man, The State is Sovereign over its Corporations
1. "A corporation is a creature of the state. It is presumed to be incorporated for the benefit of the public. It receives certain special privileges and franchises and holds them subject to the laws of the state and the limitation of its charter. Its powers are limited by law. It can make no contract not authorized by its charter. Its rights to act as a corporation are only preserved to it so long as it obeys the laws of its creation. There is a reserved right in the legislature to investigate its contracts and ascertain if it has exceeded its powers" (Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43)
here are 30 things your IRS church can or cannot do.
Some of the IRS implementing rules for 501(c)3 "tax-exempt" "religious organizations":
1.Church must have a distinct legal existence - it must be incorporated.
2.It must have a recognized (approved) creed or form of worship.
3.It must have a distinct form of ecclesiastical government
(i.e.: General Conference, board of governors/trustees, etc., and state/local organizations, etc.)
4.It must have a specific code of doctrine and discipline.
5.It must have a denominational history.
6.Ministers must be ordained by the Church Corporation (in order to serve in a pastoral capacity).
7.Ministers must be educated at a state-accredited college or university in order to be ordained.
8.Church must have an Employer Identification Number (EIN) assigned by the IRS, in order to employ ministers.
9.Pastor must receive a Social Security number in order to be employed by the Church.
10.The Church must verify that it is a nonprofit organization to be tax-exempt.
11.The Church must be engaged in activities that serve the public trust.
12.Church must be able to answer to IRS as to its' daily financial activity.
(ledgers must be open for government review & approval.)
13.Books and records must be available to IRS for inspection at any time.
14.Church must inform IRS as to who serves at the church (Deacon, Elder, Treasurer, Teacher, Janitor, etc.) regardless of compensation (or lack thereof). (IRS wants the names of those who voluntarily serve the church)
15.Church must inform IRS of identity of almsgiving recipients. (Presumably to ration the amount of assistance that they get by modifying the compensation received through welfare, SSI, WIC, AFDC, etc.)
16.Church must report to IRS all gifts sent to missionaries ($500 up). Also a taxation measure, as per form 1099.
17.Only use IRS-approved fundraising methods.
(IRS determines which methods are acceptable to raise funds.)
18.Must answer to IRS for any sermon or organizational position which is critical of the IRS.
(So the IRS can penalize the church/pastor for stepping "out of line".)
19.Must give unreserved submission to the civil magistrate pertaining to all laws, (federal, state and local,) including issues of public policy (abortion, homosexuality, assisted suicide, equal employment, education, gambling, pornography, abortion, et cetera).
20.Church must actively promote racial mixing in marriage (miscegenation).
(This has to do with the promulgation of state marriage licenses. Marriage historically existed as an ecclesiastical certification, and is supposed to be protected by the free exercise clause of the 1st Amendment. Anything that involved intermarriage was, in the early days of the US, subject to licensure on the grounds that slaves could do nothing without permission. Yet, this was the back door which the government has used to promote the licensure of all marriages. The church has become an accomplice in causing married couples to have a third party to their union, without their knowledge or consent. All forms of licensed activity by the very definition may be regulated by the state, including the "fruits of marriage" - - your children. This is how state child welfare agents get away with "legally" violating people's 4th Amendment rights!)
21.Pastor cannot enter the public debate about the licensure of ministries.
(Ministers must be licensed by the state in which they intend to practice, unless ordained denominationally, in which case the pastor may preach anywhere the denomination has an established presence.) The same arguments about licensure apply here as with #20; it is a violation of the free exercise clause with regards to Christian ethics. Ministers are answerable to God first; to be licensed is to put the state before God.
22.Pastor cannot enter into any activity opposing public policy on various issues, e.g.: abortion, assisted suicide, education, taxes, gambling, pornography, homosexuality, abortion, parents' rights, et cetera.
23.Pastor cannot solicit church members' participation in any activity opposing public policies
(such as the aforementioned).
24.Pastor cannot support legislation upholding parent's rights or other measures that would strengthen the sovereignty of the family over the state's interest in the progeny of a licensed marriage.
25.Pastor cannot proselytize against the promotion of homosexual lifestyles, abortion, gambling, pornography, and other "lifestyle options", et cetera.
26.Pastor/Church cannot advocate state and U.S. constitutions, Bill of Rights as the supreme law of the land.
27.Pastor cannot enter into sermons that criticize national public issue policies, such as the "drug war", POW's & MIA's, increasing federalization of criminal statutes & police powers, etc.
28.Pastor cannot oppose public education, its' policies, or its' shortcomings(Outcome Based Education); or promote private education above public education; or promote particular educational policies and programs.
29.Pastor cannot publicly declare that people should obey God above, or before, the government.
(As the apostle said, "We should obey the laws of God above the laws of men".)
30.Pastor cannot publicly criticize the actions of the government in the implementation of public policy.
(i.e.: promoting sex education, etc.)
One more thing: the devil works in evil ways and when you mix with the IRS, your with the devil, guess what... Abortion clincs ALSO share this exemption with churches! See how the devil works..
