“Come Out Of Her, My People”
by Chuck Baldwin

*** begin quote ***

(Editor’s Note: I wrote the article “Who Should Be The State’s Mortal Enemy? about this very subject. Chuck, a pastor in Montana, frames the subject in more religious terms than I did. If you like a good sermon, read on.)

It is no hyperbole to say that the vast majority of today’s churches do not remotely resemble the New Testament pattern. In the first place, the Church was never intended to be a government corporation! Yet, that is exactly what every 501c3 non-profit “religious” organization is: it is a government-created corporation. In the eyes of the government, pastors, elders, and deacons are not pastors, elders, and deacons; they are corporate officers. And put to the test, virtually any and all of these so-called “pastors,” “elders,” and “deacons,” will confirm that they are corporate officers. So, right out of the gate we must understand that we are dealing with government corporations and corporate officers, not with New Testament churches, pastors, elders, and deacons.

*** end quote ***

The Gooferment absorbs everything.

The Golden Rule tells you who’s running the show.

That tax exemption moderates what and how criticism is leveled at the “churches”
