Skip to comments.How 501c3 Tax Code is destroying America by muzzling churches: 501c3 Cowards

The God Who owns the cattle on a thousand hills is much bigger than any IRS Code restrictions. While I make full use of the deductibles at tax time that is NOT the reason I give. If a church is altering it’s message in order to retain a 501(c)(3) status then that church is serving two masters.
If you cannot speak the truth clearly, completely and freely then get into another business. If you loose contributions because of a lack of an IRS deduction then so be it. God will stretch that which is given by those who are giving to God, not for the IRS deduction.
Amen to that!
I don’t see how anyone that claims to be a Christian could be a Democrat.
Does that include black churches?
If you allow it, churches will simply become funnels for hundreds of millions of dollars of campaign contributions. You already gave your limit to Obama? No problem, give another hundred thousand to a black church so they can campaign for him.
Brother, life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who
treat you right. Forgive the ones who don't, just because you can. Believe
everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with
both hands, those of you who served in Viet Nam know this. If it changes
your life, let it. Take a few minutes to think before you act when you're
mad. Forgive quickly. God never said life would be easy, He just promised it
would be worth it.
Today is Band of Brothers’ Day; send this to all your brothers, fathers,
sons and fellow veterans you know.
Happy Brothers’ Day!
I LOVE YA BROTHER!!!!
To the cool men that have touched my life. Here's to you!! I was never a
hero, but I am thankful I served among them.
A real Brother walks with you when the rest of the world walks on you.
Send to all your Band of Brothers, because the fake ones won't.
