For American churches experiencing some angst over what to do about preserving their precious State-sanctioned 501(c)(3) status, and for those who think Donald Trump is really on to something awesome with his recent pitch for adjusting the rules for State-sanctioned preaching, I respectfully offer for your consideration this simple, foolproof, and utterly biblical solution to the 501(c)(3) problem:
Stop licensing your preaching with the American State.
Stop filtering your preaching for a tax break from the American State.
Stop building your “church” on business models and bean-counters’ obsessions with the bottom-line.
Stop serving mammon.
Start serving the King without State-imposed filters or limits, and let the tax brackets fall where they may.
That is all.
Editor’s Note: For a more thorough discussion of this subject and solutions that can be implemented, I suggest reading Peter Kershaw’s excellent work titled In Caesar’s Grip.
