Sick and tired of wimpy Churches whining about tax-exempt status?
November 6, 2013
Why are some Churches so silent about ending the killing of children by abortion, or electing pro-life public officials, and instead only seem to be able to talk about how much danger there is that they will lose their tax-exempt status?
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of it, and I’ve decided to do something about it.
“Pro Life Straight Talk” is a new online video series I’ve started, and the current episode talks about Politics and the Pulpit. Watch this informative video and pass it along to others! And there will be more where this came from!
In this video you will learn the total number of Churches which have had their tax-exempt status removed thanks to what was said in the pulpit or printed in the bulletin or handed out to the Congregation. It’s a number you’ll want to share with your pastor!
In this video you will also learn how long Churches have been prohibited from intervening in elections (it’s not as long as many think), and you’ll also learn how long Churches have been tax-exempt (it’s much longer than many think).
And there’s a simple fact about the tax-exemption of Churches that many pastors don’t seem to know, and it’s part of the reason that they should stop worrying that the IRS just can’t wait to yank that exemption from them.
Friends, we are living in a climate of unnecessary fear and trembling, caused by self-imposed gag orders that have nothing to do with the laws of the United States!
Like my friend John Ensor has written, “God did not rescue us from sin and death to build a community of nervous chipmunks ever sniffing the air for potential danger. He sealed our lives with his own death-defying Spirit so that we might act in kind.”
It’s time to stop the nonsense. Please watch my video on Politics and the Pulpit and spread the word!
