OF MARCH 7, 2006
Revelation 13:15, "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."
On March 7th 2006 the Bush administration put into law a brand new executive order (# 13397) that REMOVES the separation of church and state and forces all churches (with 501C3 status) to become government agencies. Strangely enough, this came almost exactly one year after Pope John Paul II said the following…

off, it would have to obviously become a church & state entity. Still, the
main image of this beast is not only about melding church & state. The true
agenda behind all this is CONTROL to put it bluntly.
it off, just as prophecied, thanks to Pat Robertson, the protestant churches
have extended a helping hand across the gulf and are now helping the government
do all this for Rome! Robertson in fact leads the charge “supposedly” from

these churches wouldn’t bow to Government strong-arming, the government had to
pull the ace they had up their sleeve. When Robertson rallied in DC with 15000
supporters back in 2002 he created an obvious need before the powers that

If you have a 501C3 tax free status, you will be expected to comply with all these “rules and regulations” and any other additions they deem necessary. The government now holds the strings and there isn’t thing one you can do about it.
If you do not agree in any way shape or form with the government you will loose your tax free status and be investigated to the point where all previous years as a tax free entity will be audited and eventually rescinded. Then you, your church board, and anyone else associated with the church in the “decision” making process will be liable for back taxes, excise taxes, as well as penalties that will literally shut you down.
In short, if you are a church 20 years and are found at fault you will be financially ruined and forced into bankruptcy. Truth is they already “tested” this out recently in November of 2001 so as to educate themselves on the problems entailed in annihilating churches. This is the main topic of my “Roman Catholic IRS” page. I was also informed just the other day that some Sabbath keeping churches and ministries that fell for the 501C3 trap have in fact tried to have it removed by contacting the IRS. However, in the attempt, the IRS stated quite boldly they would fine them as well as confiscate all properties and furnishings gathered over the life of the 501C3. So, yes, this is a foothold that has become overwhelming to some! Need I state what the right thing to do is?
not a church yet, then you will be expected to comply with these “rules and
regs,” that is of course if you seek the tax free status. Problem is, churches
are already tax free according to the constitution, as well as according to the
Why did the
pastors fall for this? It’s because of greed, plain and simple. If you want to
be able to go to the local market to buy “non ministry specific” goods without
paying taxes you will need a tax free ID number. Not only are they lying when
they do this, they are also going against Christ’s written will regarding the
separation of church and state! The only way a church can get that tax free
number is to INCORPORATE WITH THE STATE! Then the 501C3 is assured, and the tax
ID number is given. That’s how the CHURCH & STATE (image of the beast)
prophecy was actually fulfilled. The enforcement comes.. well... I was going to
say later, but it’s actually happening

this country for years by those church leaders greedy enough to fall for this
trap. It’s only
Many more articles then
this can and have been posted proving as these two prove. Now I agree that we
need to keep church & state separate. However, notice the hypocrisy here.
The government has had religious laws (blue laws) for decades. These
laws force all their agencies to be closed on “religious” holidays, of which
“Sunday” is now considered one. Now yes I know full well Sunday is not the Sabbath, but they think it is a
religious day. They place “in God we trust” on Federal Reserve Notes. They have
crosses covering all military cemeteries. They have “mangers” on government
property every December 25th. The list goes on
and on as to how much
So.. how is this a bad
thing? Looking back in history we find that mixing religion with civil power
always ends in disaster. With their new found power back in the dark ages the
Now do you see how easy Sunday laws
will be enforced? There are more articles of course of churches seeking civil
powers to help them. But this smattering should be enough to illustrate that
yes, the churches are looking to the civil powers already for assistance just as
A word of warning… Please don’t think that just because you’re not a pastor or a preacher that you’re safe in these “government” funded “faith based” 501C3 churches. Since they are “faith based funded” you are now being watched and reported on by the church staff. If they refuse to do so, they will in fact loose their faith based funding and are then placed in certain financial jeopardy. The money they can loose far outweighs their loyalty to you, your spouse or your children! You alone will suddenly become the problem, and seeing how real Christians love to preach TRUTH, you will be dis-fellowshipped. But not before being “tagged” a subversive worthy of observation by big brother.
Biblical fact is, Jesus Himself declared the following…
· Luke 20:25, "And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's."
The government seeks taxes which are in fact money, (mammon) and the things of God are most assuredly not money. With that said, is it not written…
· Matthew 6:24, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."
Yet the following United States Representative states Jesus LIED?
The Christian bible easily
exposes this woman to be a liar. However, seeing how there is already a
prophecied famine in the land of people refusing to open bibles. (Amos 8:11)
This “assumed” educated politician will be considered intelligent and therefore
trustworthy. She may be intelligent in matters of the state, but matters of the
eternal truth she is far lacking indeed. Still, many will place their trust in
her over Scripture simply because the prophecy states their bibles are dust
collectors and they have a massive lack of knowledge. In other words, if you
don’t read the warning signs you will blindly fall in the pit. And for those
that do see her as a liar, if they speak up they are either financially ruined
or dis-fellowshipped and placed under governmental observation. And it is
By the way, this same Congresswoman stated the following just two days before stating the previous...

Before closing, which religion do you suppose will be considered the global authority or which leader on earth will receive primacy in such matters of the “faith?”
Amazing how EVERY
prophecy of Antichrist points right back to
· "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."-Revelation 13:15
SPEAK = LEGISLATE LAW
CAUSE = ENFORCE LAW
The 501C3 was obviously a trap. Preachers with understanding of the end time prophecies have been stating that very fact for just over 5 decades now. Problem is, the monetary greed of the other preachers far outweighed the concrete evidence they peered into. Now this small insignificant “tax free” foothold has become a snare they could never imagine. It is so overwhelming and so massive now that even if they wanted to they simply cannot break free of it without an absolute financial disaster. Especially if they have become a large church and have been around for a few years. If they refuse to comply with the Federal Government on this one, the families of the church board will be financially ruined guaranteed.
Yes, once again, Satan has been able to dangle the “almighty dollar” before the eyes of the weak so as to claim his prey! And all prophecy had to say in warning was…
· Revelation 13:14, "And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live."
The Lord doesn’t need to explain the details, because doing so would give the wicked the upper hand. Only those seeking truth would dig deep enough to discover it. Our Lord just needed to inform us they would do it. How it comes to fruition has become plain enough now. John 14:29 becomes a glaring beacon for those that trusted Christian prophecy all along now doesn’t it? Some won’t believe until AFTER the fulfillment. I say, so be it. Better late then never eh?
Are you ready? Are you sure?
FOR THE SDA
All SDA's know their church is a 501c3 organization. But do they know what their own prophet said about all that? She said...
“When the early church departed from God and imbibed pagan errors, she became Babylon When she united with the state, she fell and, as an organization, was the body of Christ no longer. While the Reformation churches held fast to the word, Christ was with them. Then they crystallized their various errors into creeds and endeavored thus to confine God’s word, they made themselves daughters of Babylon. When some of them united with the state, they fell, and God had to use other people, called out of Babylon to carry forward His work. Now [in 1896] among these very churches which came out of the second Babylon, confusion reigns; and now [in 1896] great Babylon, including later daughters, is in adulterous union with the kings of earth , and is endeavoring to make that union stronger. God calls no church Babylon which holds to His word, and follows the light that shines from it, even though there are in its membership many who do not know Christ When the controlling influence of a church is downward, it erects some other standard besides God’s word…It has ever been true that a backslidden body, one that has turned from God’s word to men, from God’s power to the state, was never reformed in itself. Invariably God’s message has called out those from the fallen church who would do His will and preach His gospel. Israel went down to Egypt for help, and their captivity and loss of power followed. Out of the captives God gathered a faithful band to do His work. The Jewish church failed, and God called out the apostolic church to do His bidding. The Roman Church failed, and out of it God called the churches of the Reformation. Some of these churches failed to advance, and God called out others to bear His gospel to the world such as the Baptist, Methodist, Congregationalist, Disciple, Adventists. His last ‘called-out’ people will know no standard but His word, no power but His Spirit.”First Quarter, Lesson IX, February 29, 1896, p. 33-34 (Rather blunt is it not? SHE PREDICTS the SDR church would be "called out.")

THE 501(c)(3) INCORPORATED CHURCH©
“DOWN AND DIRTY”
O.K. Pastors, Evangelists, Missionaries, Deacons, Trustees, Elders…listen up! Let’s stop all the hocus-pocus, the illusions, the scams, the fairy-tales and the out right lies regarding what the 501(c)(3) incorporated church is and is not. For a change, let’s deal with facts. For those of you who don’t understand “facts”, in the legal arena facts are used and are supported by documented evidence which would be admissible in a legitimate court of law. Facts are not hyperbole!
THE DOWN side of the 501(c)(3) corporation:
*The creator of a corporation is the State;
*The State is the sole authority and sovereign head over the corporation;
*The corporation is subject to the laws of the State which limits its powers;
*The corporation has no constitutionally protected rights, except 14th Amendment;
*The corporation is an artificial person;
*The corporation submits to a State Charter declaring it is a creature of the State;
*The corporation is created for the benefit of the public;
*The corporation is a State franchise;
*The corporation is a privilege granted by the State.
The above statements are facts. They were not invented by this author in order to make a point. They were established by state/federal statutes, IRS Code and case law/precedents, if you will. They are still good law, never having been overturned/amended, therefore, they are still in full force and effect. In the landmark case Hale vs. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43 at 74 (1906), the U.S. Supreme Court stated the following regarding corporations:
“Upon the other hand, the 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 limitations 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.”
Continuing with Hale vs. Henkel, 201 U.S. 74-75 (1906) the Court also stated regarding corporations:
“There is a clear distinction in this particular between and individual and a corporation and that the latter has no right to refuse to submit its books and papers for examination at the suit of the State. While an individual may lawfully refuse to answer incriminating questions unless protected by an immunity statute, it does not follow that a corporation vested with certain privileges and franchises may refuse to show its hand when charged with an abuse of such privileges.”
Do you get it? Can you see the trap? A 501(c)(3) corporation, being an artificial person, is not considered a person under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution (religious liberty clause) or under the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution (protection against self-incrimination clause). Therefore, an incorporated church has NO First or Fifth Amendment rights.
In the case Johnson vs. Goodyear, 127 Cal.4 (1899):
“A corporation, being an artificial person, only has rights within the meaning of the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and similar provisions of State constitutions and within the meaning of state statutes.”
THE DIRTY side of a 501(c)(3) corporation:
*The 501(c)(3)corporation may exist in perpetuity;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation is required by law to serve the State;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation must support the government agenda, i.e. all public policy;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation is not really tax exempt, since it pays Social Security taxes;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation allegedly has limited liability protection;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation is just considered another business;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation can hold real estate;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation can sue and be sued;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation members do not own any of the assets;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation is governed by a Board of Directors;
*To dissolve the 501(c)(3)corporation, you must first give all your assets (if you have any) to another 501(c)(3)corporation. If you do not do this the State will take your assets and distribute them for you to other tax-exempt 501(c)(3)corporations.
You know the statement, “…there is nothing new under the sun.” Well this is certainly true about corporations. The corporation as we know it today was perfected by the Romans around 250 B.C. It had all the legal attributes that we know today. These are called legal maximums, which all originated with Rome, and survive to this day as governing legal dictum. Remember the Romans were pagans and they controlled every facet of their society, including its legal system.
As I am sure you will remember, in the Roman Empire, there were no individual or personal liberties. The only benefits and privileges you received were State-sanctioned. The great and mighty supreme authority over everything was the State. In all matters, nothing in Rome, and/or their provinces, could be done without the State’s license and permission. Incorporation became mandatory by 6 A.D. for all “spontaneous collectivities of persons.”
Rome literally had hundreds of deities which they permitted to be worshipped. The key word here is “permitted”. The Lord’s church was not only persecuted because of who they worshipped, they were persecuted because of their refusal to seek permission from the State by becoming incorporated. The Lord’s church was considered illicit because of this refusal. Sounds like what we have today, does it not?
THE DOWN AND DIRTY SIDE OF THE 501(c)(3) INCORPORATED CHURCH
This section is specifically for the Pastors who masquerade their 501(c)(3) corporations as a church; who continually allow the church to be demeaned as an underling, a subordinate, and a dependent of the State. It’s for Pastors who have bowed and crawled to Caesar to seek the almighty mythical tax-exemption. It’s for Pastors who choose Caesar’s favor over obedience to God. And, sadly it’s for Pastors who should be able to grasp this simple Biblical doctrine, or, are just plain stupid, or, worse yet, they think they are smarter than the Lord… this section is for you!
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church has no 1st Amendment or 5th Amendment rights as provided by the United States Constitution because your corporation is an artificial person; the corporation only has due process and equal protection under the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution and similar provisions of State constitutions and within the meaning of state statutes;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church must adhere to all public policy which restricts the Pastor to preaching politically correct sermons which do not assault anyone’s dignity or self-esteem. This means no speaking out about the character of political candidates, abortion, sodomy, homosexuals, the government, the war, sin, and no propaganda which equals the spreading of doctrine, which would definitely include the gospel. Oh! I know you’re saying “nobody tells me what to preach”. Really! Then obviously you are not aware that in 1954 Lyndon Baines Johnson, a real unethical low-life, was sick and tired of pastors and congregations wielding influence over voters. He declared it was time that the most powerful public forum, the church, be silenced. He proposed that in exchange for “tax-exempt status” the church would have to agree to keep silent on matters which the government considered verboten. If they did not co-operate there would be no tax amnesty for the transgressors. The rest is history.
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church is just another business under Federal and State Statutes and regulations and to the IRS. You have placed the Lord’s church in the same category with immoral, wicked and despicable groups and organizations, i.e., Planned Parenthood, atheists, witches, Satanists, pornographers, pedophiles, and hundreds of other organizations all seeking legitimacy from a 501(c)(3) corporation as a way to raise tax-deductible money for their perverted activities;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church properties are held in trust for the public and such public purposes;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church powers and activities are defined and limited by Federal Statutes and by the regulations of the Internal Revenue Service Commissioner, and are in total submission to the State and Federal authorities;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church is considered to be perpetual, and cannot be dissolved or unincorporated unless and until all assets are merged into another “tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation or trust”;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church has agreed to allow the Internal Revenue Service to be the final arbitrator and authority of what is and is not a church; to certify religion and to state who we can worship, what we can or cannot believe, and who we can give our tithes to. It’s a sad commentary about the church of our day when the church feels compelled to go to sinners to seek legitimacy;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church can now sue and be sued. Incorporation does little or nothing in the way of actually protecting the church. The legal truth is that a church cannot be sued and brought into court until it incorporates, because then it becomes a legal entity. Prior to incorporation, a church “is not an entity recognized in law.” If the court cannot legally recognize it, it cannot be sued. A church is not subject to the jurisdiction of any court. However, when a church incorporates it most certainly may be sued. Incorporation becomes the nexus of government jurisdiction over the incorporated church. Until the church incorporated it was completely outside the purview and jurisdiction of the civil government. This is a critical legal truth that seldom, if ever, will be discussed with you by your attorney.
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church establishes with the government an “unholy alliance”. The church and the corporation are each distinct, separate and mutually exclusive entities. “…Therefore when the church incorporates the church does not merge with the corporation.” Sierraville Community Church vs. McKenzie, 240 P.2nd 663 (1952). A symbiotic relationship is established wherein an incorporated church promotes the work of the church through the corporation, and the public interest, the work of the corporation and the State, are promoted through the incorporated church. This “unholy alliance” has resulted in the incorporated church being assimilated into promoting the philosophies and vain deceits after the traditions of man and the world, as enforced by civil government.
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church has said that God is not sovereign over His Church. He has no place of honor. The church is the institution ordained and established by Jesus Christ Himself, and, Christ has never delegated His authority to the any civil jurisdiction to rule in the affairs of His church. The 501(c)(3) incorporated church publicly declares that Jesus Christ is no longer competent to govern, protect and provide for His own church;
The Lord’s church has allowed itself to be emasculated by the United States government’s so called favors and privileges. It is too apathetic, intimidated and fearful to understand it was already guaranteed, by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, all rights, freedoms, liberties and protections. The courts have always recognized, “…a church is not an entity recognized in law”, therefore they have no jurisdiction over the church. How is it then that the Lord’s church can’t get this…they automatically commit spiritual suicide by voluntarily giving jurisdiction to the State by incorporating.
How is it that the Lord’s church cannot grasp that the First Amendment was an act of God’s wisdom and providence in order to safeguard His church and maintain its independence from the State? The First Amendment is the highest form of real protection ever known in the history of the church:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Where are the fearless Pastors who delivered potent “fire and brimstone” sermons against sin in all its forms? Where are the Pastors who spoke valiantly, without fear of retribution, against a corrupt government, sin, society’s condition, voter issues, and any and all forms of injustice? Where are the Pastors who care more about honoring God than being popular? Most Pastors today would rather sell their souls, enjoy sin for a season, and not worry about the coming Judgment Day, than ruffle any government feathers and thereby risk losing their “precious and sacred” 501(c)(3) incorporated status. “Let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” I Corinthians 10:12: and, “the fear of man bringeth a snare.” Proverbs 29:25.
Have any of you Pastors bothered to think about what impact your “running scared and spirit of fear attitude” has on the world? What kind of testimony is it to the unbeliever when the church incorporates out of a spirit of fear? Sadly, the issue of our testimony is seldom ever considered when making this monumental decision. But you can be sure of one thing, it is something that many others will think about when presented with the gospel. How about this scenario, “O.K. the Pastor just said that Jesus not only saves my soul, but He will be my Savior in every area of my life. He’s my Provider, my Protector, He’s my Everything. Well, if He’s such a great Protector, why then did this church have to go to the State for protection through incorporation? Obviously the church must not think very much of Jesus’ ability to protect them. No, I don’t think I’m interested in the salvation this Jesus offers.”
American’s have always looked to the Bible and to the Pastors for moral direction. The world has long recognized the church in America as the most common and most influential institution in American history. It is for sure that our Founding Fathers, who fought to establish this Country, held the uncompromising knowledge that the church was not subservient or subordinate to any king, parliament, president or any other civil government body.
“A more certain way to attack religion is by favor, by the comforts of life, by the hope of wealth; not by what reminds one of it, but by what makes one forget it: not by what makes one indignant, but by what makes men lukewarm, when other passions act on our souls, and those which religion inspires are silent. In the matter of changing religion, State favors are stronger than penalties.”
The Spirit of the Laws, Baron de Montesquieu (1748)
Well, were truer words ever spoken…the acceptance of State favors have had disastrous consequences on the churches in America. The church is effectively silenced, she is gagged, and has become ineffective. Should you doubt, just take a look at the spiritual and moral bankruptcy of our beloved America. I believe the Pastors will be held responsible and accountable to God for allowing His church to become nothing more than “an arm of Rome”, and for fearing to take an undaunted stand for the fullness of truth.
God will not let spiritual treason go unpunished. It is not the way that “seems right” but the way that “is right” and in full harmony with God’s word. Compliance is compromise.
The 501(c)(3) incorporated church has allowed an “unholy alliance” to be established between the Lord’s church and the State. “Ye cannot drink the Lord’s cup and the cup of devils,” I Corinthians 10:21. Satan, who “blinds the mind” and “transforms himself into an angel of light…,” has sucked the preachers into his trap of incorporation.
In conclusion, God has honored His church above all others with great power and authority. Now we must come out and be ye separate, and above all honor Him with all our love, our praise and our absolute obedience, for “…to obey is better than sacrifice.” I Samuel 15:22. We must offer our lives as a living sacrifice to Him. We must deny and revoke the “incorporated church” and return and restore the Lord’s church to its rightful owner and Sovereign Head, the Lord Jesus Christ. “…let God be true and every man a liar.” Romans 3:4. “…and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32.
