The front cover of the latest Newsweek Magazine shouts out what we have been saying since 1994. "We're All Socialists Now!" Our leaders are arguing for the imposition of international law (including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child) on Americans in court trials.
Kevin Swanson compares our situation to that experienced by the Separatists who were fighting state control of the church in the 1580s and 1590s in England. Fortunately, there were a few havens of freedom found in places like Holland, Switzerland, and America. Is this the time to create some havens of freedom for those who desire freedom from the tyrannical impositions on families and churches in the years to come?
Must listen... Very good message that sadly most will not hear from their pastor. "What the government funds, the government controls", so correctly notes Kevin Swanson. This is why Christian ministries and most assuredly churches MUST separate from the ungodly 501c-3 so that Christians can truly be free. Because as long as churches/ministries maintain this un-Scriptural allegiance to Caesar for the tax benefit$, allowances and official stamp of acceptability, Christians will never truly be free.
Instead, their churches/ministries will be nothing more than a corporate entity with a CEO pastor, board of director elders, and employee members. And more and more control will be exercised over them by the ungodly State because what the state funds the state controls.
Come out of her my people so says the Lord.
