Churches have played key roles in American history. The British colonies of pre-America were populated by pilgrims who sought religious freedoms in the New World. Within 200 years of the first colonies, biblically-inspired human rights arguments against the British Monarchy were being made by America's Founding Fathers. They felt kinship with the ancient Jews, who had escaped Egyptian slavery by fleeing to the Promised Land. The New World had become the new Promised Land for Christian pilgrims. They instinctively sensed that God was on their side. Their powerful convictions eventually led to a split within the world's mightiest empire. Wars resulted, and these were the birth pangs of a new nation.

The New Rome for Pauline Christians

Americans tend to take great pride in their religious and political history, as they should. However, the Bible has unfortunately been twisted by some Americans for self-serving purposes, and the book of Romans is the most twistable book of the Bible. The book of Romans should have been left with the Dead Sea Scrolls and the bogus gospels. Romans is where Paul shamelessly prostituted to the state's power, like he did in earlier times, when he was known as Saul. In Romans, Paul openly encouraged people to sell-out to the will of the state for their own self-benefit and self-preservation. What Paul wrote in the book of Romans was in opposition to everything that had been taught by the Christ, and we feel certain that he had to eventually answer for it. The anti-Christian themes in Romans should be of no surprise to anyone who is educated about Paul's dark history of murdering Christians.

Paul's writings were used to justify slavery in the United States, and they are currently being used to justify everything from the disarmament of the American people to America's ungodly aggressions in the Middle East. American churches are obediently falling in-line with the will of the state, but not for biblical reasons, but because they are legally required to. This sad state of religious and political corruption will be explained later.

Most modern Christians carry an arrogance unseen in previous generations. Many are confident that a place in Heaven awaits them, simply because they self-proclaim (speaking for Christ) that they are "saved". Putting words into God's mouth, and judging for the Christ is probably not the most effective way of getting in; but such is normal in the modern church. This modern version of "Christianity" actually drives newcomers away from the faith, because its representatives live so hypocritically.

The church was prophesied to eventually become "The Whore of Babylon" in the book of The Revelation. Such a prediction helps to explain the current state of the church today.

[Revelation 17:3-6]  "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, 'MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH'. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."

It is predicted thusly that the greatest enemy of the returning Christ will not be the unbelievers, or the false religions, but the Christian church itself. He was killed by his own people during his first mission, and we should expect exactly the same vitriol again. This has been foretold, in fact.

Modern churches have come to elate chapter 13 of Romans, as if it were written by God himself. For those who are unaware, Paul instructed people to obey their masters and authorities, because authorities are (according to Paul/Saul) always appointed by God. If this were true, then it would mean that all of the NAZI's were following the will of God, since they followed orders from their appointed leaders. What Paul preached flies in the face of God's principle of free will.

It is important to note that biblical prophesy predicts that the anti-Christ shall rise to a position of worldly power and authority, yet we are obviously not mandated by God to obey the anti-Christ. The Bible repeatedly provides examples wherein people had to disobey the state in order to serve God. In fact, the Christ spelled-out that none of us can serve both God and the state. We must choose which we will obey when the two are in opposition. The Christ was eventually murdered by Roman authorities because he defied the Jewish authorities.

The New Trinity: Money, Power, and Politics

The churches were once a gathering place for peace keepers and peace makers. Churches were once treated as holy grounds where violence was neither tolerated nor condoned, except for when violence was absolutely the lesser of evils. There was even a time when criminals and other scoundrels would flee into churches, because law officers would not pursue them inside. Now churches are not considered holy grounds anymore. They are businesses and corporate entities.

We have been taught to believe that churches are altruistic, volunteer organizations, with no connections to the state, and indeed, they once were. This is not the case anymore. Most Americans believe that since the foundation of their nation, there has been a policy of not taxing churches. This was implemented by the U.S. Government in its early days as part of a policy of total non-interference with religion. They implemented this policy, in part, to guarantee a complete freedom of religion for all Americans. America has had a policy of not placing any taxes upon churches, or church related activities, until recently.

Being an American church is no longer enough to obtain a tax-free status. Changing the taxation rules was justified by the reasoning that some individuals and corporations will always "cheat" the government of tax money. Governmental money and power eventually came to trump religious freedoms. American churches must now register with the state. Nowadays, they must get the state's permission to exist, whether it be through zoning filings, registering for their right to "incorporate" like a business, or just to get the tax-free status. The story gets even worse when we examine the changes in tax policies, and what revenuers now require from churches. To be free of taxation, churches must register with the I.R.S. as a "501c3 non-profit organization". This is something that has huge implications for churches. The government has orchestrated the rules for becoming a 501c3 charity to take control of the churches.

To maintain its 501c3 (tax free) status, a church cannot be politically active in any way, or it is suddenly reclassified as a "political action organization", instead of a church. This means that as soon as a church gets its 501c3 status, it becomes illegal for it to question anything that the government does. Churches no longer speak about the evils committed by our own government, or negatively about its wars. Ever wonder why the churches got so quiet after the Civil Rights Movement? Now you know how the churches were hijacked. The 501c3 taxation scheme was check-and-mate for the Military Industrial Complex. It is no wonder that modern churches cling so tightly upon the book of Romans, for virtually every organized church in the United States is essentially a division of the U.S. Federal Government. Once they sell themselves out to the government and sign themselves over for a 501c3 status, the I.R.S. will eat them alive if they ever get out of line. Almost every American church has this hanging over them; like an executioner's axe. So the churches are obedient to their master, as they tell us to be. If you, like us, have spent years trying to uncover the reasons for the corruption and cowardice of the modern churches, then you too can put your research to rest.

If you happen to be a church-going Christian, then be aware that sooner or later you'll have to decide which master you will serve. Will you follow the path of money, power, and politics, or the real Trinity? Take heart knowing that the real Church does not contain four walls and a ceiling, and it never has.

While I agree there is merit in some of the claims in the article, it is crucial to view Paul's teachings regarding slavery in light of progressive revelation. God's opposition to slavery is clear in his liberation of the Jews from Egypt and Babylonian exile. In Exodus, you could essentially beat your slave to the point of the death, by Corinthians we are talking about greeting slaves with a 'holy kiss' as well as treating slaves as brothers in Philemon.

The same progression can be seen in relation to women, lepers, eunuchs and so on. If God is unchanging (Mal. 3:6) and so is Jesus (Heb. 13:8), I can only see it as us humans who fall short!

I became a born-again Christian nearly 10 years ago. Since September of 2002, I read my Bible every day, usually in the morning. I also have a devotional and I journal.
For quite a few years now, I have been uncomfortable with some of Paul's statements. Especially the ones that start with, "I feel, or I think" To me, he was imposing his opinion and not God's truth. So to find this article has been so relieving! I stopped going to Church because I began to disagree with the commercialism of christmas and easter, and the lie that so many Christians follow with both of these.
I struggled alone with my thoughts and feelings. With Paul and some of his words.
I thank you for helping me see that I am not crazy or non-Christian for them.
I just found you today, and I am starting to think this is Divine intervention, because I have been able to sigh in relief that I am not alone anymore!

My, My, My. What in the world is going on? I know we live in troubled times and I know it might be hard to find a true Bible believing Church. But it is not impossible, I belong to a great Church where we are taught the love of Christ and where the pastor demonstrates big time his passionate love for Jesus. I have grown so much in the last three years - released from psychiatric drug additction after many long years and God brought me to this website to learn the truth behind Big Pharma which helped me get free. Maybe the Church can't talk about things pertaining to the government but we have you and the internet and other sources to find information as the Holy Spirit faithfully leads those who search for truth. Thankfully, I have also found a wonderful Messianic Jewish congregation because I questioned why the 4th commandment is no longer regarded relevant. The Holy Spirit will lead us to find answers if we are faithful and committed. For so long I sought His hand (as most people do) thankfully, I have finally learned to seek His Face. Total surrender is needed for God to begin to do for a person what they could never do for themselves. Remember - do not forsake the assembly of yourselves together. It is important to learn and grow in grace and knowledge of God with other believers who know more than you and whose example you can learn from. Anyway, that's my 2 cents for whatever it may or may not be worth. Thanks.

I think you are pretty much right on here. One clarification... it is not required that Churches register with the state and become 501(c)3 organizations. In the tax book for 501's, it actually states that "Churches that meet the requirements of IRC section
501(c)(3) are automatically considered tax exempt and are not required to apply for and obtain recognition of tax-exempt status from the IRS .
Although there is no requirement to do so, many
churches seek recognition of tax-exempt status"... Here's a link to the IRS book. Look at the bottom of page three on the left side.

A true and horrible misconception and purposely taught, that the Sabbath is on Sunday, is 100% incorrect. The 7th day of the week is Saturday and that is the true Sabbath day. Which is more proof of what this article says, that the church is more of a threat than anything is absolutely true. If you are going to any Church on Sunday, you are sinning against God. The authors are also correct, church can be in your home, outside in nature, with only you, or someone of your same beliefs. But honor the Sabbath, it is from sundown Friday to Sundown Saturday. We should study, pray and be in tune with God everyday.

This website has been truly Godsent for me, not only are they truly serving The one and only God, but I first came here for health reasons and then to see them list true facts about God has been like I said Godsent. I'm in terrible health and I will not go to any doctor but I will pray, not eat forbidden foods like Pork, and I will follow their advice to the T. They are 100% correct, doctors have no clue, they do not want to help, each one gives a different diagnosis/treatment. They make you even unhealthiier then you were before seeing them.
God is the answer to every problem, and he will answer.

Thank you for this valuable website & loads of true information about health.

Something that has been misunderstood for a long time is this:

[Revelation 17:3-6] "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, 'MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH'. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."

This is actually to my understanding to be describing Mecca and that horrible Satanic black meteor that all of the Muslims bow too. If any of you are interested in more details concerning the true Anti Christ and who his followers are? Check out shoebat.com
After growing up in Christian church my whole life and thinking i knew about this stuff, then listening to him and studying the scriptures he references. I knew in my heart it was truth. This article is old now, so you may have already discovered him? But if not it is worth a view. You can also find him on youtube..

God Bless
