Revelation 13:15 - And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
On March 7, 2006 we see how President Bush Jr. had put into law through his administration put into law an executive order #13397, which had removed the separation of church and state. This separation of church and state was removed through the crafty works of the 501c3, c4 and any other tax exemption one may receive. The benefits they receive through their collaboration with the government, it has removed their rights as a church, thus they became a corporation. They united their filthy lucre, love for money to the state, giving up their church to the powers from beneath. They have formed the image of the beast and joined their church with the state, mirroring Rome’s image of church and state, which God said not to do in Matthew 22:21 - They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
The Vatican does not obey the God of heaven and earth; thus, they are represented as MOTHER OF HARLOTS and ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH who has sought after the very fornication with the kings of the earth as prophesied in Revelation 17:2 - With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
Has the Vatican Whore of Babylon united their church with the kings of the earth? Yes, the popes of Rome have always used the kings of the earth (the state) to push their dogmas upon God’s elect. Without the collaboration of joining the church to the state, they would not be able to enforce their false doctrines and satanic practices upon the Lord’s obedient Christians who will not dare link their church under the powers of the state and the kings of the earth; otherwise they would be united with Laodiceanism and not united with Christ. This is how the catholic church will be able to enforce their SUNday laws through their image of church and state unity, just as they had done in time past.

Church and State Can Cooperate, Says Pope:
“VATICAN CITY, MARCH 17, 2005. (Zenit.org). - John Paul II believes that the Church and state can and must collaborate in their service to the person and the common good with relations of "autonomy and difference."
"The Pope is the ruler of the world. All emperors, all the kings, all the princes, all the presidents of the world are as altar boys of mine." - Priest D.S. Phelan, Watchman, June 27, 1912.
"But Constitutions can be changed, and non-Catholic sects may decline to such a point that the political proscription [ban] of them may become feasible and expedient. What protection would they have against a Catholic state?" -The State and the Church, pp.38,39, by Miller and Ryan, imprimatur of Cardinal Hayes.
"The Catholic Church in this nation must live on to accomplish her work, even though our Republican form of government disappears." -The Catholic World, April, 1935, p.12. "
They [Catholics] must penetrate wherever possible in the administration of civil affairs... all Catholics should do all in their power to cause the constitution of states, and legislation to be modeled on the principles of the true Church." -Encyclical of Leo XIII.
"Consequently, John Paul was criticized by liberal and moderate politicians and newspapers for transgressing the boundary between church and state." TIME June 1, 1981 article "Not Yet Hale, but Hearty" By George Russell
In sermons based on the Ten Commandments, John Paul denounced excessive materialism, divorce, contraception and the separation of church and state, TIME June 17, 1991 "The Gift Of Life" p. 47 Sermons from A Native Son
Recent statements by the Polish Episcopate have fueled apprehension. In late April the bishops urged that the new constitution exclude any provision for the separation of church and state. Instead, they suggested, "exceptional emphasis should be laid on the need for cooperation between the state and the Catholic Church." TIME May 20, 1991 "Five Who Could Be Vice President" Pg 40 "Power to The Pulpit"
In the book Confusion Twice Confounded, Monsignor Joseph H. Brady states that the U.S. Supreme Court is wrong in decisions regarding "separation of Church and State." He says: "A sound view of the Constitution in its relation to religion probably awaits a change in personnel in our highest tribunal." -The Register, Jan. 23, 1955.
"If the liberties of the American people are ever destroyed, they will fall by the hand of the Roman Catholic cult's clergy." -General Lafayette under President George Washington
"The Roman Catholic motto is ourselves alone for fellow Roman Catholics. We must defeat all heretics (non Catholics) at the ballot box. The holy father states that negative tactics are fatal. The demands of the holy father (the pope) are that the public services should be 100% Roman Catholic soon. Care must be taken that no suspicion may be raised when Roman Catholics are secretly given more government jobs than Protestants, Jews and other heretics." -Archbishop Gilroy
"There is, ere long, to be a state religion in this country, and that state religion is to be the Roman Catholic."
1st. The Roman Catholic is to wield his vote for the purpose of securing Catholic ascendancy in this country.
2nd. All legislation must be governed by the will of God, unerringly indicated by the pope.
3rd. EDUCATION must be controlled by Catholic Authorities, and under education the opinions of the individual and the utterances of the press are included, and many opinions are to be forbidden by the secular arm, under the authority of the Church, even to war and bloodshed." (Father Hecker, Catholic World, July 1870.)
"Undoubtedly it is the intention of the pope to possess this country. In this intention he is aided by the Jesuits, and all the Catholic prelates and priests." (Brownson's Review, May 1864)
Truly, the Vatican-Jesuit Order has taken over the SDA Church today. They preach a lot of truth to keep the people in the ship, which they claim will go through, but the Bible and the prophetess clearly said what will happen to the SDA church in the end…
Revelation 3:15, 16 - I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
The Bible prophesies that this churches probation will close and be spued out. Probation will close on this corporate body and all who stay in the ship will be destroyed in the end. Ellen G. White saw the great apostasy coming forth in the church and went on to exclaim the following…
“Is this the true church? God forbid! Why, methinks the very angels in heaven would shudder to see them appear there in their present state. Will they grow any better? If the past is a criterion by which to judge, we answer, never, no, never. Then you that hope for salvation, flee quickly, flee, I say, for your lives! You have not one moment to spare. Utter destruction awaits every soul that is found in this Laodicean state...” - Review and Herald, Volume 1, November, 1850, #1 “The Laodicean Church”, p 8
"If the church of God becomes lukewarm, it does not stand in favour with God any more than do the churches that are represented as having fallen and become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird." Letter 35, 1898, p. 6-7
"We are in danger of becoming a sister to fallen Babylon, of allowing our churches to become corrupted, and filled with every foul spirit, and cage of every unclean and hateful bird." Letter 51, 9/6/1886
Therefore, “As for the voice of the General Conference, there is no voice from God through that body that is reliable.” Manuscript 57, October 12, 1895 & Manuscript Releases, vol 17, p 178.
SO, Professed Ministers of God, Evangelists, Missionaries, Deacons, Trustees, Elders…here you go! Let’s stop all the hocus-pocus, the illusions, the scams, the fairy-tales and the outright lies regarding what the 501(c)(3) incorporated church is and is not. For a change, let’s deal with facts. For those of you who don’t understand “facts”, in the legal arena facts are used and are supported by documented evidence which would be admissible in a legitimate court of law. Facts are not hyperbole!
THE DOWN side of the 501(c)(3) corporation:
*The creator of a corporation is the State;
*The State is the sole authority and sovereign head over the corporation;
*The corporation is subject to the laws of the State which limits its powers;
*The corporation has no constitutionally protected rights, except 14th Amendment;
*The corporation is an artificial person;
*The corporation submits to a State Charter declaring it is a creature of the State;
*The corporation is created for the benefit of the public;
*The corporation is a State franchise;
*The corporation is a privilege granted by the State.
The above statements are facts. They were not invented by this author in order to make a point. They were established by state/federal statutes, IRS Code and case law/precedents, if you will. They are still good law, never having been overturned/amended, therefore, they are still in full force and effect. In the landmark case Hale vs. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43 at 74 (1906), the U.S. Supreme Court stated the following regarding corporations:
“Upon the other hand, the corporation is a creature of the State. It is presumed to be incorporated for the benefit of the public. It receives certain special privileges and franchises, and holds them subject to the laws of the State and the limitations of its charter. Its powers are limited by law. It can make no contract not authorized by its charter. Its rights to act as a corporation are only preserved to it so long as it obeys the laws of its creation.”
Continuing with Hale vs. Henkel, 201 U.S. 74-75 (1906) the Court also stated regarding corporations:
“There is a clear distinction in this particular between and individual and a corporation and that the latter has no right to refuse to submit its books and papers for examination at the suit of the State. While an individual may lawfully refuse to answer incriminating questions unless protected by an immunity statute, it does not follow that a corporation vested with certain privileges and franchises may refuse to show its hand when charged with an abuse of such privileges.”
Do you get it? Can you see the trap? A 501(c)(3) corporation, being an artificial person, is not considered a person under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution (religious liberty clause) or under the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution (protection against self-incrimination clause). Therefore, an incorporated church has NO First or Fifth Amendment rights.
In the case Johnson vs. Goodyear, 127 Cal.4 (1899):
“A corporation, being an artificial person, only has rights within the meaning of the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and similar provisions of State constitutions and within the meaning of state statutes.”
THE DIRTY side of a 501(c)(3) corporation:
*The 501(c)(3)corporation may exist in perpetuity;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation is required by law to serve the State;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation must support the government agenda, i.e. all public policy;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation is not really tax exempt, since it pays Social Security taxes;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation allegedly has limited liability protection;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation is just considered another business;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation can hold real estate;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation can sue and be sued;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation members do not own any of the assets;
*The 501(c)(3)corporation is governed by a Board of Directors;
*To dissolve the 501(c)(3)corporation, you must first give all your assets (if you have any) to another 501(c)(3)corporation. If you do not do this the State will take your assets and distribute them for you to other tax-exempt 501(c)(3)corporations.
You know the statement, “…there is nothing new under the sun.” Well this is certainly true about corporations. The corporation as we know it today was perfected by the Romans around 250 B.C. It had all the legal attributes that we know today. These are called legal maximums, which all originated with Rome, and survive to this day as governing legal dictum. Remember the Romans were pagans and they controlled every facet of their society, including its legal system.
As I am sure you will remember, in the Roman Empire, there were no individual or personal liberties. The only benefits and privileges you received were State-sanctioned. The great and mighty supreme authority over everything was the State. In all matters, nothing in Rome, and/or their provinces, could be done without the State’s license and permission. Incorporation became mandatory by 6 A.D. for all “spontaneous collectivities of persons.”
Rome literally had hundreds of deities which they permitted to be worshipped. The key word here is “permitted”. The Lord’s church was not only persecuted because of who they worshipped, they were persecuted because of their refusal to seek permission from the State by becoming incorporated. The Lord’s church was considered illicit because of this refusal. Sounds like what we have today, does it not?
THE DOWN AND DIRTY SIDE OF THE 501(c)(3) INCORPORATED CHURCH
This section is specifically for the Pastors who masquerade their 501(c)(3) corporations as a church; who continually allow the church to be demeaned as an underling, a subordinate, and a dependent of the State. It’s for Pastors who have bowed and crawled to Caesar to seek the almighty mythical tax-exemption. It’s for Pastors who choose Caesar’s favor over obedience to God. And, sadly it’s for Pastors who should be able to grasp this simple Biblical doctrine, or, are just plain stupid, or, worse yet, they think they are smarter than the Lord… this section is for you!
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church has no 1st Amendment or 5th Amendment rights as provided by the United States Constitution because your corporation is an artificial person; the corporation only has due process and equal protection under the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution and similar provisions of State constitutions and within the meaning of state statutes;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church must adhere to all public policy which restricts the Pastor to preaching politically correct sermons which do not assault anyone’s dignity or self-esteem. This means no speaking out about the character of political candidates, abortion, sodomy, homosexuals, the government, the war, sin, and no propaganda which equals the spreading of doctrine, which would definitely include the gospel. Oh! I know you’re saying “nobody tells me what to preach”. Really! Then obviously you are not aware that in 1954 Lyndon Baines Johnson, a real unethical low-life, was sick and tired of pastors and congregations wielding influence over voters. He declared it was time that the most powerful public forum, the church, be silenced. He proposed that in exchange for “tax-exempt status” the church would have to agree to keep silent on matters which the government considered verboten. If they did not co-operate there would be no tax amnesty for the transgressors. The rest is history.
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church is just another business under Federal and State Statutes and regulations and to the IRS. You have placed the Lord’s church in the same category with immoral, wicked and despicable groups and organizations, i.e., Planned Parenthood, atheists, witches, Satanists, pornographers, pedophiles, and hundreds of other organizations all seeking legitimacy from a 501(c)(3) corporation as a way to raise tax-deductible money for their perverted activities;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church properties are held in trust for the public and such public purposes;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church powers and activities are defined and limited by Federal Statutes and by the regulations of the Internal Revenue Service Commissioner, and are in total submission to the State and Federal authorities;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church is considered to be perpetual, and cannot be dissolved or unincorporated unless and until all assets are merged into another “tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation or trust”;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church has agreed to allow the Internal Revenue Service to be the final arbitrator and authority of what is and is not a church; to certify religion and to state who we can worship, what we can or cannot believe, and who we can give our tithes to. It’s a sad commentary about the church of our day when the church feels compelled to go to sinners to seek legitimacy;
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church can now sue and be sued. Incorporation does little or nothing in the way of actually protecting the church. The legal truth is that a church cannot be sued and brought into court until it incorporates, because then it becomes a legal entity. Prior to incorporation, a church “is not an entity recognized in law.” If the court cannot legally recognize it, it cannot be sued. A church is not subject to the jurisdiction of any court. However, when a church incorporates it most certainly may be sued. Incorporation becomes the nexus of government jurisdiction over the incorporated church. Until the church incorporated it was completely outside the purview and jurisdiction of the civil government. This is a critical legal truth that seldom, if ever, will be discussed with you by your attorney.
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church establishes with the government an “unholy alliance”. The church and the corporation are each distinct, separate and mutually exclusive entities. “…Therefore when the church incorporates the church does not merge with the corporation.” Sierraville Community Church vs. McKenzie, 240 P.2nd 663 (1952). A symbiotic relationship is established wherein an incorporated church promotes the work of the church through the corporation, and the public interest, the work of the corporation and the State, are promoted through the incorporated church. This “unholy alliance” has resulted in the incorporated church being assimilated into promoting the philosophies and vain deceits after the traditions of man and the world, as enforced by civil government.
*The 501(c)(3) incorporated church has said that God is not sovereign over His Church. He has no place of honor. The church is the institution ordained and established by Jesus Christ Himself, and, Christ has never delegated His authority to the any civil jurisdiction to rule in the affairs of His church. The 501(c)(3) incorporated church publicly declares that Jesus Christ is no longer competent to govern, protect and provide for His own church;
The Lord’s church has allowed itself to be emasculated by the United States government’s so called favors and privileges. It is too apathetic, intimidated and fearful to understand it was already guaranteed, by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, all rights, freedoms, liberties and protections. The courts have always recognized, “…a church is not an entity recognized in law”, therefore they have no jurisdiction over the church. How is it then that the Lord’s church can’t get this…they automatically commit spiritual suicide by voluntarily giving jurisdiction to the State by incorporating.
How is it that the Lord’s church cannot grasp that the First Amendment was an act of God’s wisdom and providence in order to safeguard His church and maintain its independence from the State? The First Amendment is the highest form of real protection ever known in the history of the church:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Where are the fearless Pastors who delivered potent “fire and brimstone” sermons against sin in all its forms? Where are the Pastors who spoke valiantly, without fear of retribution, against a corrupt government, sin, society’s condition, voter issues, and any and all forms of injustice? Where are the Pastors who care more about honoring God than being popular? Most Pastors today would rather sell their souls, enjoy sin for a season, and not worry about the coming Judgment Day, than ruffle any government feathers and thereby risk losing their “precious and sacred” 501(c)(3) incorporated status. “Let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” I Corinthians 10:12: and, “the fear of man bringeth a snare.” Proverbs 29:25.
Have any of you Pastors bothered to think about what impact your “running scared and spirit of fear attitude” has on the world? What kind of testimony is it to the unbeliever when the church incorporates out of a spirit of fear? Sadly, the issue of our testimony is seldom ever considered when making this monumental decision. But you can be sure of one thing, it is something that many others will think about when presented with the gospel. How about this scenario, “O.K. the Pastor just said that Jesus not only saves my soul, but He will be my Savior in every area of my life. He’s my Provider, my Protector, He’s my Everything. Well, if He’s such a great Protector, why then did this church have to go to the State for protection through incorporation? Obviously the church must not think very much of Jesus’ ability to protect them. No, I don’t think I’m interested in the salvation this Jesus offers.”
American’s have always looked to the Bible and to the Pastors for moral direction. The world has long recognized the church in America as the most common and most influential institution in American history. It is for sure that our Founding Fathers, who fought to establish this Country, held the uncompromising knowledge that the church was not subservient or subordinate to any king, parliament, president or any other civil government body.
“A more certain way to attack religion is by favor, by the comforts of life, by the hope of wealth; not by what reminds one of it, but by what makes one forget it: not by what makes one indignant, but by what makes men lukewarm, when other passions act on our souls, and those which religion inspires are silent. In the matter of changing religion, State favors are stronger than penalties.”
The Spirit of the Laws, Baron de Montesquieu (1748)
Well, were truer words ever spoken…the acceptance of State favors have had disastrous consequences on the churches in America. The church is effectively silenced, she is gagged, and has become ineffective. Should you doubt, just take a look at the spiritual and moral bankruptcy of our beloved America. I believe the Pastors will be held responsible and accountable to God for allowing His church to become nothing more than “an arm of Rome”, and for fearing to take an undaunted stand for the fullness of truth.
God will not let spiritual treason go unpunished. It is not the way that “seems right” but the way that “is right” and in full harmony with God’s word. Compliance is compromise.
The 501(c)(3) 5+1 = 6 = 3x = 666 incorporated church has allowed an “unholy alliance” to be established between the Lord’s church and the State. “Ye cannot drink the Lord’s cup and the cup of devils,” I Corinthians 10:21. Satan, who “blinds the mind” and “transforms himself into an angel of light…,” has sucked the preachers into his trap of incorporation.
In conclusion, God has honored His church above all others with great power and authority. Now we must come out and be ye separate, and above all honor Him with all our love, our praise and our absolute obedience, for “…to obey is better than sacrifice.” I Samuel 15:22. We must offer our lives as a living sacrifice to Him. We must deny and revoke the “incorporated church” and return and restore the Lord’s church to its rightful owner and Sovereign Head, the Lord Jesus Christ. “…let God be true and every man a liar.” Romans 3:4. “…and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32.
All SDA's know their church is a 501c3 organization. But do they know what their own prophet said about all that?
“When the early church departed from God and imbibed pagan errors, she became Babylon When she united with the state, she fell and, as an organization, was the body of Christ no longer. While the Reformation churches held fast to the word, Christ was with them. Then they crystallized their various errors into creeds and endeavored thus to confine God’s word, they made themselves daughters of Babylon. When some of them united with the state, they fell, and God had to use other people, called out of Babylon to carry forward His work. Now [in 1896] among these very churches which came out of the second Babylon, confusion reigns; and now [in 1896] great Babylon, including later daughters, is in adulterous union with the kings of earth , and is endeavoring to make that union stronger. God calls no church Babylon which holds to His word, and follows the light that shines from it, even though there are in its membership many who do not know Christ When the controlling influence of a church is downward, it erects some other standard besides God’s word…It has ever been true that a backslidden body, one that has turned from God’s word to men, from God’s power to the state, was never reformed in itself. Invariably God’s message has called out those from the fallen church who would do His will and preach His gospel. Israel went down to Egypt for help, and their captivity and loss of power followed. Out of the captives God gathered a faithful band to do His work. The Jewish church failed, and God called out the apostolic church to do His bidding. The Roman Church failed, and out of it God called the churches of the Reformation. Some of these churches failed to advance, and God called out others to bear His gospel to the world such as the Baptist, Methodist, Congregationalist, Disciple, Adventists. His last ‘called-out’ people will know no standard but His word, no power but His Spirit.”First Quarter, Lesson IX, February 29, 1896, p. 33-34
