Our brave new world in action.
Via Talk Wisdom we learn of the chilling outcome of the clash between the social demands of homosexuals and the right of the church to maintain its biblical beliefs.
Two lesbian couples who were denied permission to use a church group’s seaside pavilion for civil-union ceremonies have persuaded New Jersey officials to punish the group through revocation of its tax-exempt status.
1. Churches need to immediately rethink voluntary enslavement to the government via “tax exempt status”. We predicted several years ago that this would be used as weapon against churches who refused the advances of homosexuals.
2. Laws being proposed will eventually be the noose from the tree for churches who do not bend to the homosexualization of the church.
3. As we stated here, churches and pastors should immediately review their policies, procedures and ethics and ensure they will withstand further intrusion of social activism by homosexuals.
Addendum: Generally, I dont respond to critics who have nothing substantial or biblical to say in response to this blog. But we are making this exception for the exceptionally uninformed “Kevin” who claims we are enslaved to the government via tax exempt status. He desparately needs education and out of sympathy we feel an obligation to help him.
We offer the following to Kevin in hopes that he will take more time to educate himself before making false, reactionary comments.
If you want to verify a ministry’s tax exempt status, simply go to the IRS official website and type away. Guidestar is not an accurate source of information on churches and ministries.
