As the great right wing talk radio host says: "Not just no. Hell no!"
Sodom and Gomorrah comes to mind.
The time of Noah must have looked like the leftist world is trending today:
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
We might bring up murdering babies before birth (called “abortion” or “Planned Parenthood.” Or after birth when it has been discussed and decided by the doctor and the mother whether to allow the baby to die on a tray or help it live. Someday all states will consider that legislation.
It’s an anti-Christian hate group of atheists.
What’s their religion?
Is the Klan a religion too?
If I tried to get a tax exempt status for a newly formed MAGA church, they’d laugh and double the taxes.
I don’t want the IRS deciding what a church is and is not. So I’m fine with this.
CIVILIZATIONS ARE DESTROYED BY INTERNAL MORAL ROT AND DECAY.
THEY ARE NOT DESTROYED BY EXTERNAL FORCES. THEY COMMIT SUICIDE.
It can’t be long. When you see these things coming to pass, look up, for your redemption draweth nigh.
And it’s not just the condition of the world, but also of the church, as the article cites with Scripture in these last days.
Isn’t it ironic however that the same agency of government which was used to target conservatives, (you know those threats to society which pledge God, family, and country), is used to bolster their own spiritual wickedness in high places.
Remember the words of the kenyan about those that cling to their Bible and guns.
Calling the President, please pick up the house phone.
Why do we want the government to determine what religion is “better” and deserves tax exempt?
Why would any of us want more government control?
I laugh at a fellow resident of my town, who advocates strict enforcement of codes and zoning, she recently got a warning from the township code enforcement for having too high of grass and she needs cut it. Of course she complained about, why they are so strict, blah blah blah
I said “You can’t have both strict enforcement and lax enforcement”
And left her with that.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. ... for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Zechariah 14:7
“I dont want the IRS deciding what a church is and is not. So Im fine with this.”
A Wise Old Sage once told me that when you enter into a 501 c 3 contract with the government you give up any dissension with the government that you are in contract with. In effect those churches become ineffective.
So you argue about the political legitimacy of a religion based on your own religious beliefs. Have you actually read the constitution? It says nothing about your savior being the chosen one in the country.
I agree that this is more a tax scam than a religion. But one need only look at the millions funneled to Evangelicals and The Pope to see tax scams.
Quote~ “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. ... for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Zechariah 14:7”
(I think you meant Matthew 25:13)
1 Thessalonians 5 King James Version (KJV)
1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
We can know the times and the seasons.
We know the season!
Not much more to be said there. Keep looking up!
