Under MeegerKing [sic] the # of mosques has increased 10 fold (First Amendmant? B/S)
You Stupid Idiot! No Church or Mossque can OPERATE as a CHURCH without the PERMISSION of the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT! Ever Heard of the 501.c. TAX EXEMPT Law?
Ministry and the
501c3 Application Gag
Many in ministry use the 501c3 application to seek tax-exempt status to function as churches. However, when you ask them what those numbers and letter mean...they are not so sure.
(Click on the tabs below to open a panel. Reclick to close to minimize scrolling.)
The 501c3 application form outlines a statute written by Congress.
Written fully it would be 26 USC 501(c)(3). Which is shorthand for Title 26 of the United States Code Section 501 paragraph c subparagraph 3.
Title 26 is commonly referred to as the Internal Revenue Code.
Notice that it doesn't say Internal Revenue Law.
Congress passes laws...not codes...and in no particular order. And so, a separate office in the Congress organizes all of the public laws passed by Congress into 50 organized code books, called Titles, covering different areas of law (e.g. Banking, the Judiciary, etc.) with appropriate chapter and paragraph headings to organize things.
And because there is room for error when people dabble with the laws passed by Congress, and form them into organized bodies of statutes, and refer to them on the IRS 501c3 form, the language of the actual laws passed always controls what the law is...the language of the Code does not.
Some of the volumes of coded laws organized under a Title are enacted into positive law...which means that the federal courts may presume that the codified statutes are error free renditions of the actual laws passed by Congress...and may be used as evidence of those laws.
Codes enacted into positive law have implementing regulations written by the executive branch describing how the public is to comply with the laws. Those regulations are published in the Federal Register so that people can know what the law requires of them. The regulations can not alter the statute in any way.
Other codified statutes are not enacted into positive law and are private law for officers and employees of the federal government. Title 26 of the US Code Section 501c3 is not enacted positive law. It is only prima facie...that is, presumed... evidence of what the law actually is. Presumptions stand as evidence only until they are challenged.
Accordingly, a person or an organization must file a 501c3 application...
whereby they give their consent to be governed by private...unpublished
...statutes like Title 26. (For most ordinary people the IRS application ...giving their consent to be subject to private law...is the IRS Form 1040.)
(On the other hand, no one has to file an application seeking permission to be subject to the jurisdiction of criminal laws against capital murder.)
What happens when a church submits a tax-exempt application?
Many ministers believe they must by law seek IRS exemption from federal taxes...even though in its various publications the IRS disagrees with that unfounded belief. Such ministers believe their legitimacy derives from such government approval...and not from God.
However...to exchange the headship of Christ for unneeded state 'favors' is to willingly declare your ministry is NOT a church. Making it a privileged government entity...with its ability to speak God's whole truth shut down...is to voluntarily disestablish it as a church because it must operate and represent private civil law...not God's law. God is not a subject of the federal government.
So...let's see if the 501c3 church's belief that it must operate according to government rules has any foundation in law...
The 501c3 application is an example of the churches crossing boundaries seeking and consenting to the jurisdiction of and regulation by the federal government. And, of course, what the government silences under 501c3 is political speech. Such jurisdiction and regulation is contrary to God's revealed word and God's law.
For example, because homosexual marriage has become politicized... criticizing it...or criticizing politicians in favor of it...from the pulpit could be considered at one extreme as church involvement in politics (an IRS 501c3 no-no) or at the other extreme as 'hate speech'.
If you would like to read a short history of why churches were only relatively recently added to the list of exempt organizations in 26 USC 501(c)(3)...at the instigation of Lyndon Johnson... (it was essentially to silence the churches with their consent) you can go from the 501c3 application to 501(c)(3) facts.
Also you can download a FREE training course to give to your pastor..."What Pastors Need To Know" ...about lawfully reclaiming their constitutional right to political speech from the pulpit while remaining immune to taxation.
Follow the links in that document to verify everything for yourself about how a 501c3 application prevents witnessing to God's word and what to do about it.
This is important to do because most people operate from "traditions" and unverified beliefs about the IRS 501c3 application and its rules. These traditional beliefs are exactly opposite to what the law and the IRS...actually say about churches and taxation.
Traditions...beliefs...opinions...and presumptions don't matter. The law matters...and only the law matters. The U.S. Congress and the IRS say plainly that churches are immune to federal income tax unless the churches seek to be governed by the Internal Revenue Code via the 501c3 application
And can the law represented on the 501c3 application silence God's law? The IRS says not without the minister's consent. And can a ministry be a true church when it agrees not to speak God's law? Not according to the gospel of Matthew (7:21ff).
It has nothing at all to do with Barack Hussein Obama nor any President whatever of any party. People can practice whatever fare ith they desire in this nation, agree with it or not, and erect structures of worship as they see fit, even if there is a sudden spurt of mosques.
That's America, Imperial Wizard. Ever lived here?
