When the church accepts money from the government, it also allows government to dictate to it. The church accepts the bribe to VIOLATE our current laws and that is unlawful, at least. Therefore, how can the church object to the government telling them to violate its own principles and laws? They can’t have it both ways. I’d like our Bishops to show me where it says we can satisfy our moral obligations by taking money from our neighbor’s pocket - taxes. Whatever happened to, “Render to Caesar......”?
501c3 churches are another example of govt control
An old man once told me “Son, if someone gives you money they’re going to tell you how to spend it.”
