LET US GET ONE THING STRAIGHT! God did not tell you that!
There are more than 40,000 church (Lyndon Johnson) organizations in the U.S. All of which claims to be ordained of God. The most challenging problem is how do you find the right church? If you are currently searching for a place of worship, here is a little advice. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY, and PRAY some more. For those of you fortunate enough to have found a place to worship there is a little advice for you as well. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY, and PRAY some more. As it is, you are more likely to join a cult, then the real church of God. Think about it. These church organizations begin with the same God conviction, inspired by a dream, a vision or a divine audible voice. How strange is it however to have one God speak different messages to the so many churches. It always gets me when people say God told them to name the church, but each time the name is different. It does not make sense. The word fictitious means “not true” or “imaginary”. Every church (Lyndon Johnson) organization in the U.S. has a fictitious name, its a part of starting a business. So did God call us to start a bussiness, or to be about our father’s bussiness? I meant that to be a rhetorical question. God desires us to be about his business.
The 501 (c) 3 contracted relationship between the church and government is created by men to silence the church from speaking out against public falsehood. Correct, every church organization that consent to 501 (c) 3 has agreed to be silent against public falsehood. If they accepted the contractual relationship, then refuses to comply, they become liars. The only reason church leaders feel the need to create this relationship is out of recognition. They want the government to recognize them as a religious body. However, I ask, who cares if the IRS (which is not a government) notices the church? The free church of God does not need the government to tell them who they are; the free church of God receives recognition from God. Get real, why would God have the need to go to the government to exist? The last I check the powers that exist are ordained by him; he gave them their identity.
So I say this, if anyone told you God inspired them to call the Church Outreach, AME, Apostolic, Pentecostal, Baptist, Seventh Day, Lutheran, Latter Day, or any of the 40,000 church organizations names under the 501 c3 relationship, I would reply, LET US GET ONE THING STRAIGHT! God did not tell you that!
A church corporation is a creation of the state and only exists if the state allows it to. A church corporation gets its powers to operate from the government. These churches must answer to Caesar every year, “Exempt organizations must keep books, reports and file returns based on an annual accounting period called a tax year”. -IRS So who church is it? Moreover, you thought you were joining the Body of Jesus Christ. Wrong!
