WARNING!501(C)3 CHURCHES ARE CONTROLLED BY AMERICA’S GOVERNMENT!
August 28, 2012 in Activism
In truth, according to Norton v. Shelby Co., a 501(c)3 organization/corporation is a “creature” of the legislature, created by the state and therefore controlled by the state. It has no constitutional rights except for a limited first amendment right to advertise; (Va. State Board of Pharmacy v. Va Citizen’s Council or the “Ashwander Doctrine”). In other words, this fictional “person” (501(C)3)) has no rights. It only has privileges – which can be taken away at anytime by the state. In fact, all statutory organizations, (created by legislature) and known as “public entities” are controlled by the state.
The next question is; what is a church or ministry? The answer to this lies upon what you regard a church or ministry to be. Do you want it to be controlled by the state? Or, do you want it to be private and controlled by you and God? A church or ministry does not have to apply for an exemption. They are already exempt by its very definition. There is NO law that requires a church or ministry to apply for exemption. What is Gods, is Gods. What is created by the state is controlled and “owned” by the state. Therefore, Corporations are not necessarily tax-exempt.
I believe this is not what God had in mind. A church or ministry as a 501(c)3 corporation will never have freedom of worship, assembly, speech, press, redress of grievances, the first Amendment right allowing us to teach or preach our own doctrines, or the right to worship on Sabbath or Sunday. In fact, with no qualms about the separation of church and state (a misnomer), a state government can dissolve this type of church or ministry and take its assets.
Attorney: “The first legal reference to corporations was in 2083 B.C.. It was under the code of Hammerabbi, which was the law in the Mesopotamian part of Asia Minor. Roman Civil law brought about the development of various corporations. They were 1) Religious Soldalitas, 2) Governmental Municipants, and 3) Societies. During the time of the Roman Empire, the concept arose that a corporation could only come into existence by the creative touch of the sovereign. But with approval of the sovereign comes a certain amount of control. There were two offshoots of Roman Civil law – 1) Canon Law, and 2) modern civil law. Canon law deals with church property. This branch gave rise to two types of corporations – 1) Corporation Sole – composed of one person like a Bishop and 2) Corporation Aggregate – composed of many people. In the early 13th century, Pope Innocent IV developed the concept of a corporation as a “persona ficta”. This means a fictitious person or an artificial person, created and controlled by papal authority. This also led to the legal separation of the corporation (an artificial person), from a natural person – a human. The word “corp” means “body”. This also leads to the fact that you cannot use everyday English language when you are talking about something that is “legal”. A word in “legal” terms, means something different than the same word means in normal language.” The word “legal” itself means “fiction”. In every day language, you and I are persons. That is not the case in “law”. A legal dictionary says that a “person” is a “corporation,” a “partnership”, i.e. an artificial, legal public entity.”
This Roman Civil system [we now have in our courts] of normal language vs. legal language is very tricky. It may mean one thing to common folk, but it may mean quite another for the attorney and the court. “The word “church” with small letters [lower case] means a group of worshipers, and the word “Church” which is capitalized, means a state “corporation”.
“The civil law, the dominant law of Europe, evolved from the influence of Roman law. In this system of law, also known as “Inquisitorial Law”, you are presumed guilty until proven innocent. This is the opposite of English “Common Law” where you are presumed innocent until proven guilty.”
“By the 14th century in England, the concept of “Ilio Mosinari” – or charitable corporations, was developed. By time of the reign of King James I, England had accepted the old Roman theory that a corporation could only be created by the proper authority, where the state was justified in regulating and controlling the “corporation”.”
“Because the ancient law of commerce involved sea-going vessels, merchant law developed into what we call today “Maritime Law”- [the law of the sea]. Under Maritime law, during a voyage, the Captain’s word was the absolute, final law.”
“The great “Protestant Reformation” started a change away from some of this Roman based law. Now, in the 21st century here in America, corporations are considered to be creatures of the state, in harmony with the roots of Roman Catholic “Canon Law” and the “Civil Law” of the Roman Empire. State law, (statutory law), governs every facet of a corporation’s existence. A corporation is a “person” under the law. The rights of a corporation are different from the rights of a natural person under the constitution. A corporation under the first amendment only has a limited freedom of speech, and is protected only as long as that freedom of speech involves the corporation’s advertisement of its product. The corporation itself does not have a fifth amendment right against self-incrimination. Corporations don’t have the same rights against search and seizure as humans are supposed to have.” However, a private organization such as my “Self-Supported Ministry” and is not a 501(c)3 corporation, may also have the same rights as a natural person. This type of organization is not public, it is private. (More on this later.)
The Pastor went on and asked the lawyer about the Jesuit inspired inquisitorial doctrine of “visitation”: He stated; “This means that the state is a silent, third partner in any corporation formed with the state – including a “Church” corporation. “Visitation” gives the state the right to supervise and control every facet of the corporation’s operation. They can “correct” anything that they think is an abuse and they can “nullify” everything that the state views as “irregular”.
“The corporation must justify its behavior to the state by certain reporting requirements. If it cannot justify it, the state may order the State’s Attorney to file a suit against the corporation. If an injunction is obtained and the corporation refuses to follow its dictates, the State’s Attorney General can file a suit to dissolve the corporation. If the suit is filed and the corporation is dissolved, guess who is in charge of taking control of the assets of the corporation? You guessed it – the state through the court.”
“For a charitable corporation to receive “tax-exempt” status as a 501(c)3 corporation it must look to Title 26 USC Section 501(c)3. This is also known as the IRS Code. So, a 501(c)3 corporation must meet the requirements of the IRS, as well as the requirements of the state. This is one area where federal law can control a corporation even though there is NO corporate federal law!”
IRS publication 557 states that you do not have to register with the IRS and that a church/ministry is “exempt automatically”. Therefore, if a church or ministry forms a 501(c)3 corporation with the state, they “sign away” in a “legal contract” the rights of their organization under the constitution. However, if you now have a 501(c)3 corporation, you may be able to keep it as long as you use the corporation for the purpose of bulk mailing permit and perhaps your advertising. You must remember that the corporation is a “commercial enterprise” (public entity). This is the main reason the state regulates it.
The following is a story about what happened to a “501(c)3 Church” a few years ago: “There was a small Baptist Church in Nebraska. The pastor’s name was Louis Sullivan. The Church decided they would start a Church School. They wanted to educate their children in their brand of religion and therefore wanted to choose their own teachers. So, they hired teachers who were not licensed as teachers and opened the Church School. It wasn’t long until the state found out about it and told the pastor to cease and desist operating a school or get teachers who were licensed. This Church did neither. One morning as the students were coming to Church to attend School, the doors of the Church were chained shut. Later in court, after the Attorney General for Nebraska gave his opening remarks, the judge turned to the pastor and said, “Pastor, do you have anything you want to say”?
“The pastor stood up and said, “Yes, your Honor. The U.S. Constitution gives my Church the right to freedom of religious speech, religious assembly and worship.”
The judge looked at him and said, “Pastor Sullivan, is your Church incorporated?” Pastor Sullivan said, “Yes your Honor, it is.”
The judge said, “Pastor Sullivan, sit down and be quiet. You mention the constitution one more time in my court and I will hold you in contempt. When your organization incorporated as a 501(c)3 organization, it contracted away every constitutional right you thought it had.”
The first clue to the above proceedings should have been the heading of the law suit. It read, “The State of Nebraska, a corporation verses Faith Baptist Church, ‘Incorporated’”. This was non other then a corporation suing another corporation. And, because it is a corporation suing a corporation, there are NO constitutional rights. It was a commercial case. The only law that applied was Corporate Law.
It should be pointed out that this was prophesied in Daniel 7:25. Yes, the beast has attempted to change the laws. What was God’s law or the “Common[ly understood] Law, is now “man’s law” – the Roman Civil uncommonly understood law.
Daniel 12: 8-10 says it all, “…Go your way Daniel, because the words are closed and sealed until the [appointed] time of the end. Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.”
Thousands of churches and organizations are 501(C)3 entity’s throughout America. How many these male and female preachers know what was written in the above paragraphs? If he or she truly knew these earth shaking truths they would instantly restructure their corporation. Virtually all of them have fallen prey to Satan’s “Lukewarm church.”
A Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.
In March of this year the Pastor, who we shall refer to as Pastor Revere, was invited to attend a meeting of his local FEMA chapter which circulated around preparedness for a potential bio-terrorist attack, any natural disaster or a nationally declared emergency.
The FEMA directors told the Pastors that attended that it was their job to help implement FEMA and Homeland Security directives in anticipation of any of these eventualities. The first directive was for Pastors to preach to their congregations Romans 13, the often taken out of context bible passage that was used by Hitler to hoodwink Christians into supporting him, in order to teach them to “obey the government” when MARTIAL LAW is declared.
FEMA training document for pastors (PDF) 33 pages.
It was related to the Pastors that quarantines, martial law and forced relocation were a problem for state authorities when enforcing federal mandates due to the “cowboy mentality” of citizens standing up for their property and second amendment rights as well as farmers defending their crops and livestock from seizure. It was stressed that the Pastors needed to preach subservience to the authorities ahead of time in preparation for the round-ups and to make it clear to the congregation that “this is for their own good.” (sound familiar?)
We have received confirmation from other preachers and Pastors that this program is a nationwide initiative and a literal Soviet model whereby the churches are being systematically infiltrated by government volunteers and used as conduits for martial law training and conditioning. The Pastor was told that over 13,000 counties were already on board.
It falls under the umbrella of the NVOAD program which is training volunteers in a “Peer to Peer” program in a neighborhood setting.
Pastors were told that they would be backed up by law enforcement in controlling uncooperative individuals and that they would even lead SWAT teams in attempting to quell resistance.

And you though you were free in America! Unknowing to most Americans, the good old U.S.A. is already a full blown police state. Why do you think Homeland Security and FEMA is ordering billions of dollars in ammo and armored vehicles right now? Believe me! It’s not to be used overseas. Now more than ever it’s time to place your faith Jesus Christ and pray daily because we’re entering a very dark age right now. As the old saying goes, “prepare for the worst and hope for the best.”
