The churches of America continue to fail in their primary duty to their members, namely, to preach the word of God for the purpose of saving souls. There are the continuing assaults upon our churches and there are new threats to the viability of the Christian churches in America as well. There is only one inescapable conclusion, the Christian spirit in America’s churches is largely dead on arrival. It is highly likely that your pastor is bought and paid for by DHS or the EPA or some other alphabet soup federal agency. The message of the Bible has been subverted to promote the message of the government.


Maryland County Pushes Churches to Preach Environmentalism In Exchange for Tax Credits

According to the Washington Post, churches in Prince George County, a Maryland county, are being offered tax breaks for incorporating environmentalism into their sermons. Subsequently, 30 pastors have started preaching ‘green’ ministries to avoid extra taxes. The number of participating pastors is certain to grow as the symbolic globe of the New World Order is replacing the traditional cross. 


Looking into he background of this tax revealed that the EPA demanded a tax at the state level to cover the cost of pollution “run off” into Chesapeake Bay. The EPA leaned heavily on the States and the State began to lean on the Church. This led to a storm management fee,” passed by the state legislature in 2012, which will now  go into effect following a decree from Democrat Governor Martin O’Malley.

Maryland has subsequently ordered its 10 largest counties to raise almost $15 billion dollars to pay for mitigating “run-offs”.

Churches in a Maryland county are being offered tax breaks for incorporating environmentalism into their sermons. According to the Washington Post, 30 pastors have started preaching ‘green’ ministries to avoid extra taxes. This is all EPA driven and controlling the message of the church has long the goal of the government.

Interestingly, nobody is pointing out that the EPA and the 30 pastors are violating the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment. If I live in Prince George County, as a homeowner, I might be willing to impart the lessons of environmentalism to my family, but nobody from the government is coming to offer me a tax break for doing so. Subsequently, the “tax break” is not being applied uniformly. It would seem that the government values controlling word of God more than the word of a father in his own home.

It is hypocritical and unconstitutional that the government does everything it can do to keep the word of God from reaching our children in public schools, but the government can’t wait to control the message from the pulpit. And in Maryland, the word of Jesus is being replaced by the dictates of environmental director Adam Ortiz. Someone should remind Mr. Ortiz that the allegation that man is the primary cause of CO2 has been disproven and that the exposed “Climategate emails” revealed the fraud behind the “green movement”. Despite the exposed fraud of the movement, the pseudoscience continues.


Houston Mayor Demands copies of Sermon Notes

Last May, Houston Mayor Annise Parker, an avowed Lesbian and two homosexual city council members rammed through a non-discrimination ordinance that gave special rights and protections to homosexuals and lesbians. The proposed “bathroom bill” ordinance passed despite vocal opposition by the Houston community, which was led by local churches and pastors. The mayor anticipated that the pastors in her fair city might push back. Subsequently, she demanded copies of their sermon notes and private communications in order to monitor the opposition from the church.

Even though the mayor and her cronies were forced to withdraw the demand, based upon a “technicality”, there were some pastor’s who were willing to comply with the demands to produce notes of private communications between church members and copies of sermon notes under threat of subpoena.  Someone should remind these pastor’s that their communications are protected by privilege and they are duty-bound by law to protect their communications, within their church, with all due diligence and zeal. It would appear that the “confessional” isn’t what it used to be.

Continuing Threats to the Church

Previously, I have detailed an outright assault on the compromising of the word of God with regard to the government’s manipulation of the tax-exempt status of IRS controlled churches. Specifically, I am speaking about the concept of 501-c-3 tax-exempt churches.


Is your church a friend or foe with regard to your salvation? Is your church is a 501-C-3 tax exempt church? Is your church an agent of the government? If your church leadership does not condemn anything controversial, no matter how antithetical to the word of God, you are not worshiping in a Christian church. If your church is a 501-C-3 tax exempt church, your church is not a church of God. 



DHS now demands that the pastors preach a bastardized version of Romans 13.  Does your pastor command you to follow the will of the government because it is your Christian duty to do so under Romans 13? In the following paragraphs it will be revealed that your pastor is likely bought and paid for and you will be told how to prepare for martial law, “quarantining” and firearms confiscation and that it is your “Christian duty” to comply with the government. 

The modern interpretation of Romans 13 is pure blasphemy. This scripture has been morphed into a doctrine espousing the “Divine Right of Kings” in which God has somehow chosen a king to ruthlessly rule over a people and it is incumbent upon the people to accept their “God-given fate”,  The flock are commanded to “…submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.”  This false interpretation is nothing but a divine coronation of a ruthless, self-serving government and Christians are expected to capitulate and honor the same kind of thievery, lawlessness and murder which inspired Jesus to expel the moneychangers from the Temple.


The Clergy Response Team

Many of your 501-C-3 pastors have gone so far as to put on the uniform of the enemy and it is called the Clergy Response Team. The Clergy Response Team falls under the umbrella series of programs known as DHS’ controlled  National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NOVAD) which is a non-profit, member organization which shares knowledge and resources throughout a disaster. The organization helps to prepare, respond, recover and to mitigate the damage caused by some unknown disaster presumably which lies in the future of humanity.

Amazingly, NOVAD claims to be a faith-based coalition which is structured as a non-governmental organization and operates on a national scale and is supported by tax dollars funneled to the DHS.

Instantly, Bible believing Christians should smell a rat. Since when, in the modern era, has the federal government ever sponsored organized religion? The answer is not since well before the advent of the atheist activist, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, who was successful in banning prayer in the public schools in 1963. Then why would the government suddenly fund and support a “faith-based organization” on a national scale?  The simple answer is that Homeland Security is seeking to control our churches and ministers, before the impending train wreck comes to fruition inside of America. DHS desperately is seeking to control all Christians through the perversion of Romans 13 and this is one of two cornerstones in this movement designed to control Christian leaders. And this government foothold into the control of our churches begins with accepting the 501-C-3 tax exempt status which gives the government license to control the message and to ultimately pervert the word of God. There can only be one outcome for this kind of training, making the people docile when martial law is rolled out.

If your church is a 501(c)(3) organization, then your church has a significant financial motivation to not truthfully interpret the true message of the Bible. The tax exempt status of being a 501(c)(3) organization is the other cornerstone of this shift away from allegiance to God and towards worshiping our new Savior, the federal government. When was the last time your pastor spoke out against abortion or homosexuality? Unless I missed the fact that God personally rewrote sections of the Bible, your pastor’s failure to stand up to the liberalism of the New World Order should have tipped you off that something was terribly wrong with your church.


According to the Internal Revenue Service, no substantial part of a religious, tax exempt church may engage in any activity which may be attempting to influence legislation and the church may not intervene in political campaigns. In other words, if the government decides to secretly disappear dissidents under the NDAA,  the church must remain silent or risk losing its tax exemption. If the government continues to expand its infanticide policies by extending the murder of babies to include post-delivery abortion, then the church must remain silent. If the government engages in any heinous, genocidal act, such as the murder of 1.2 million Iraqi’s, under the false pretense of looking for weapons of mass destruction, the church must remain silent or risk losing the tax advantages for being a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt organization.


Mark 8:39 clearly states, “What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?” This page must be absent from almost all the pastor’s Bibles in today’s pulpits. Mark possessed the courage to pay a price for his faithfulness. This kind of faithfulness should be embraced by all who claim to lead our congregations in the name of God. The irony of the situation can be accurately expressed with the following

Isn’t a church tax-exempt by its very nature and this renders the concept of 501-c-3 tax exemption to be a moot point? Yes,the principle is upheld by the First Amendment.


The 501-C-3 tax exemption = 30 pieces of silver

Preaching environmentalism = 30 pieces of silver

Pastor’s giving copies of sermons to Houston’s mayor = 30 pieces of silver 



All Pastor’s who lead 501-C-3 churches, need to fall to their knees and beg for God’s forgiveness for leading his flock astray through espousing the false doctrine of government over the King of kings. According to Yahoo Answers, nearly all churches are a 501-C-3 tax exempt status.

In the meantime, save your tithe for the home Bible study group that you are going to form. Stop feeding the beast.


Mathew 18:20 does not state that where two or three thousand gather in my name at a 501-c-3 church preaching environmentalism, there I am with them

Matthew 18:20 states that For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” 

In the same manner that homeschooling works, so does home Bible study. I would encourage all Christians to withdraw their support for their government run church.

    Brave and amazing writing Dave. You speak the truth on every point.

    I should point out that “Word” is interchangeable with “Jesus Christ”, making it a proper name and noun, thus it should be capitalized.

    Great work! Thank you!

  2. pantsupdontloot December 4, 2014 at 6:59 am

    Very enlightening sir, and sadly I don’t have one solution. It can’t be said or exposed any better than your article, but as you said they won’t preach against homosexuality or abortion, yet they refuse a donation from a lottery winner, claiming the lottery is sinful. Swallow camels and choke on gnats, I guess. Thanks and God bless.

    The American apostate church is MAIN SOURCE of all Godless destruction of this nation. Christ said I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. The thing is the love for Christ is not whats building the church , it’s emotional manipulation that they call the Holy Spirit, the health and wealth feel good , false gospell is whats building the false church. the love of silver was and is still today the god of this world. Come and get your thirty pieces of silver professional preachers. Where I stand is free ground , cause it’s all Gods.

    I’d like to see a few pastors thoughts about Romans 13, possibly in a future article of yours. I don’t think you proved your argument by comparing it to how Jesus felt about the money changers. Those guys were modern day bankers, not government employees. It was likely their exchange rates that was ripping off poor people that got Jesus so upset.

  5. Fairview1 December 4, 2014 at 8:31 am

    Pastortutes! Here the modern Church’s alphabet of priorities:

    A. Attendance: More bodies in the Pews

    B. Building: Building bigger to hold the more people

    C. Contributions: More pressure to tithe to pay for the big church to hold the bodies.

    Now you are a complete modern day successful business complete with debt.

    Verse: Prov. c17: v1: Better a dry morsel and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.

    When Jesus stated{ Render unto Caesar what is due Caesar}, He was being sarcastic. Jesus knew he was being tricked into making a statement as to rebellion against the ruler. He simply meant NOTHING belongs to Caesar, it belongs to the Father! My point being is if this were not the case then WHY does the so-called Church want an Tax exemption? Its stupid beyond comprehension. The Father in heaven provides all the time every single day, and its his provision that the Church should rely on. Tithing has absolutely nothing to do with money, its of your first fruits, which include time, talents, resources. Giving is what comes from the heart! The traditions of men and the rudiments of this world? No thanks

    While I agree that churches ought to be preaching the truth of the gospel and should not be prohibited from speaking from the Word of God, becoming a non-501c3 church creates a problem as well. If a church chooses to operate as a non- 501(c)(3) church, then it is treated as a for profit corporation. This creates a real problem for the church because it loses its religious protections under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which grant whole exemptions on hiring practices based on religious grounds. For- profit corporations must follow state hiring and firing practices without any religious exemptions. So if you are 501(c)(3) you lose your ability to speak freely from the Word of God. If you are a non-501(c)(3) you lose your ability to make hiring decisions based upon religious beliefs. It appears that “Caesar” has the church just where “he” wants it.

    Brother Dave, I have been booted out, run out, ran out, or walked out of many churches in the last 15 years. I have visited a number of them that on the surface, they look good, smell good, feel good then the stench of corruption of God’s Word comes floating up from the depths of their rotten bowels! One tells me that Paul said we could drop one of God’s commandments! One says that we need to be prepared to enter the bridal chambers in heaven for consummation of the wedding vows! One tells me that we are going to fly away in a pre-Trib rapture and watch things from the balcony! One tells me, “well we don’t want that Holy spirit things getting out of hand”! Yet another tells me, when I teach a seniors class, 20 to 25 years my age, that the Zodiac is mentioned in scripture, MAZZAROTH, Job 38. After showing them in the Hebrew/Chaldee translator, they were astonished! Each and everyone of them! Then I had to splain it to the pastor of 35 years, who never took the time to research it! His response? Just teach from the church printed material if you will! My response? “I WILL NOT!”
    Not to just rant about this issue, the point to be made is, WE ARE HELD TO A LEVEL OF IGNORANCE BEYOND ANY IMAGINATION! Most churches in America truly frown on reading from the Apocrypha as well! “OHH NOO! we dont’ study such things!” “What if we are mislead?” What’s to fear when we have the greatest teacher in “THE HOLY SPIRIT” ? Yeah! The modern synagogue of Satan has a denominational attribute that fits all the itching ears! god Bless you for this article! “THE WORD” Says 1Peter 4:17 For the time has come that judgement must begin at the house of God:

    PSALM 91

    If ministers removed themselves, their affairs, properties in lands and buildings from under government jurisdiction, they’d have protection of Common Law to conduct their activities in Liberty as People, rather than as ‘persons’ subject to Roman Civil Law.

    By acting in the latter status, they make their affairs taxable in the first place. Accepting donations from church attendees and providing charitable help to them in return is … excluded … from taxation, not merely ‘exempt’ by government’s leave.

  11. dave December 4, 2014 at 10:15 am

    We have today for the most part the Laodicean church,
    which makes our Lord sick. God’s word becomes
    irrelevant in most churches just like our constitution
    has become to our politicians.

  12. scooter December 4, 2014 at 10:33 am

    UNDERSTAD—OUR LAWS ARE NOT LEGITIMATE. The corporate USA via supposed national bankruptcy reorganization and British Maritime Law, as I understand it, has clandestinely replaced the constitution– but only if, in ignorance, we allow it. Obviously, the country has been hijacked by globalist tyrants since 1913 and the implementation of the FED, which led to the pre WWII default status.

    What does that have to do with this topic. The FED owns the IRS
    which is THEIR collection arm. Their rules, which the FED (Illuminati led) forces will seek, will be the destruction of the Jesus serving God fearing church. Any church which becomes a support arm of this evil state’s policies, is in TRUTH supporting Satan! Doesn’t the IRS assault against the Tea Party show that truth?
    Quite frankly, logic and truth have evaporated in this country. We do not realize (thanks to the corrupt and compliant media and school system), the adulteration of the petro dollar via uncontrolled printing by our corrupt government, and that it is also destroying international purchasing power by users of that petro dollar, and causing the poorest in the world to struggle to EAT! So—it will soon be replaced and radically devalued—and our cost of imported goods will soon MULTIPLY in cost to us.
    In the meantime, as the world sees what our corrupt leadership is doing—we are becoming ODIOUS to the rest of the world. If we won’t replace the cancer of progressive communist globalists, and Rockefeller Nazi globalists, and the vile bankers and elitist slime pulling the strings—then—-you can be sure the rest of the world power players will—and it won’t be pretty!

    u.S. Catholic churches received around 200 Million in American tax dollars last year. And the Baptist churches are receiving 100’s of millions of American tax dollars to house illegal aliens.
    Where is the outrage about this?
    Or the fact that an entire nation that calls itself jewish receives over 3 BILLION in American tax dollars each year. That’s about 7 Million per day. Or a payment of $500 per year per IsRaEli in IsRaEl.
    And just think. As of yesterday. The u.S. congress is giving the wholly “jewish only” state more money and goodies from the American taxpayer.
    Oh. So-called jewish orgs in America receive 96% of federal funds from Homeland Security. IsRaEli agent Michael Chertoff of the naked body scanner fame was the architect of funneling tax dollars to these vile anti-White, anti-American and racist groups.
    So don’t be surprised that the snouts of John Hagee’s, Joel Olsteen’s, Pat Robertson’s are in the money trough of their paymasters in Tel Aviv.

    The major problem started when LBJ as a senator in 1954 gave churches the ability to be tax exempt and issues receipts for donations, via 501(c)3 status. And churches holding hands with lawyers all gathered around the pig swill from Caesar. PROBLEM they already were tax exempt and could receive tax exempt donations. As to being Green the church has always been responsible to raise stewards for the care of the earth, why because the earth is the Lords. But if we cannot manage the piece of earth we call our body, then how in God’s name can we be effective stewards of any other piece of earth.

    “The leaven if godliness has not entirely lost its power. At the time when the danger and depression of the church are greatest, the little company who are standing in the light will be sighing and crying for the abominations that are done in the land. But MORE ESPECIALLY will their prayers arise in behalf of the church because ITS MEMBERS are doing after the manner of the world.” 5 Testimonies, page. 209, 210.
    The various denominations, Catholic, Baptist, Pentecostal, Methodist, Adventist, are not the true church. They are actually Laodicea.
    Thankfully, there is a remnant. The church may appear as about to fall, but it does not fall. It remains, while the sinners in Zion will be sifted out—the chaff separated from the precious wheat. This is a terrible ordeal, but nevertheless it must take place. None but those who have been overcoming by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony will be found with the loyal and true, without spot or stain of sin, without guile in their mouths…. The remnant that purify their souls by obeying the truth gather strength from the trying process, exhibiting the beauty of holiness amid the surrounding apostasy.
    To stand in defense of truth and righteousness, when the majority forsake us. To fight the battles of the Lord when champions are few, this will be our test. 5 Testimonies, page 136 (or 142).

    This is why persecution is coming to the end-time church. I attend church, and nothing is said about anything, other than business as usual. By that I mean, what the church in this country has been doing for decades!
    Another big stumbling block is the pre-trib rapture. Doctrine is won’t be here, so Revelation isn’t taught.

  20. Anon December 4, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    If you don’t know by now, that most churches have been compromised, it means you haven’t read your Bible, and are willing to listen to the tripe being preached, also known as the ‘feel good gospel.’ No need to repent for your sins; there’s no hell; and God is love, and everyone gets to go to Heaven, regardless. The Preachers of this heresy, and those with itching ears who sit and listen to it, will pay the price of eternal separation from God, in a place called Hell. Don’t take my word for it, read it for yourselves.

    Everything that has a beginning, also has an end, and God will shortly put at end to the outright rebellion against Him. He’s been very patient, but He will not contend with man much longer. As always, you have a choice to make. You can sit in the pews and continue to listen to the false doctrines being spewed, or you can pick up your Bible and read it, and compare it to what you hear to see if it’s true. We can’t remake God to suit ourselves, because He is unchanging, and so is His Word, and His Word cannot be compromised.

    A Warning in Revelations 22:18-19

    “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” The message is pretty clear.

    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

  21. Useless Eater December 4, 2014 at 9:57 pm

    Great stuff, Dave. The actual number of NON-501-C3 churches is insignificant. I would even go so far as to say that the entire institution has essentially sold out to the state and is beyond all hope. It was never for the people anyway. Even when Jesus spoke of the “church”, it was not in the context of what we think the church is today. He knew the evils of this fake church we have now and He was all about exposing them.

    Please look this analysis of a famous biblical story and how it is being applied to what is going on today (I really think you’ll dig it):

    Dave, important perspective, thanks for speaking up.

    Two thoughts:
    1) The divine coronation thing is exactly where we get the term “church”. In the Geneva bible, as in the greek, the word is “assembly” or “ecclesia”. King James specified that the translators would render “ecclesia” as “church” and so the practice of “church” granting legitimacy to the state was born and lives on. We the assembly gather as an organic body with Jesus as our head, not under a co-opted bought and paid for “leader/pastor/priest” who serves as the legal representative for a 501c3.

    2) Romans 13 specifies the legitimate function of government: “For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad.” Any self proclaimed ruler who is a terror to good conduct is no legitimate ruler, he is a usurper. The bible doesn’t say, submit to governing authorities for this is the sum of the law and the prophets. It does say, treat others as you want to be treated for this is the sum of the law and the prophets. Jesus (true government being upon his shoulders) elevated moral authority above civic authority which is why we say “Jesus is Lord” and why the founders of these united states said “No King but Jesus”.

    We have lost sight of these truths and one more for good measure. James 5:12 says above all else do not take oaths.and Mt 5:34 says let your yes be yes, and your no be no. When we pledge to the flag and the nation it represents, when pledge loyalty to political party in order to be part of its leadership, when we pledge our assemblies to comply with the 501c3 thought police, we give away our yes and our no. And so church children are sent to offensive (not defensive) resource wars which are immoral because we delegated our yes. And so our taxes are used to do horrible things that we would never voluntarily support. Its time to take bake our yes and our no. Ceasar is not lord. The pope/pastor/bishop is not lord. Jesus is Lord.
