I have or have access to a number of old church hymnals from several denominations but mostly Baptist and Pentecostal. If you can tell me what denomination the church is to help narrow what might otherwise be a very involved and lengthy search I will see what I can do but I am making no promises. I am about to ask a question about a song myself. I was reminded of it recently. There was a song that played on MTV around the early or mid 1980’s that had the lyrics “… give me a one world religion ….” If you know, look for my question in about fifteen minutes and get yourself ten points.

This is the church
This is the steple
Open the doors,
But where’s all the people?

It’s crowded in worship today
As she slips in
trying to fade into the faces
the girls’ teasing laughter
is carrying farther than they know

A traveler is far away from home
he sheds his coat
and quietly sinks into the back row
the weight of their judgemental glances
tell him that his chances
are better out on the road

Jesus paid much too high a price
for us to pick and choose who should come
and we are the body of Christ

If a minister endorses a candidate from the pulpit. Does their church lose it’s tax-exempt status?

Question by juhsepi: If a minister endorses a candidate from the pulpit. Does their church lose it’s tax-exempt status?
I’m asking this question In light of the recent debate going around about Obama’s minister.

Regardless of what side you take on this matter, Whats clear in the video below is that he is endorsing Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton.

Does this violate their churches tax exempt status?

Best answer:

Answer by Brian J
Not likely. The IRS has never seriously enforced the 1954 law that forbids churches to aid candidates for elected office. (It has been amended to ban opposing political candidates as well.)

The agency defends its record by noting that churches enjoy special legal protections that prevent the IRS from proactively monitoring them for violations. The agency cannot launch an investigation into a church unless it receives a complaint from a parishioner or an independent watchdog group.

IRS experts outside the agency say a bigger stumbling block to enforcement is the American cultural taboo against government intrusion into churches. Estimates are that only about five churches have ever lost their tax-exempt status by violating the rule. That’s one church for each decade the law has been on the books.

Do you think it’s right for the Salvation Army to list itself as a “church” to avoid disclosure?

Question by Green Pagan 4.0: Do you think it’s right for the Salvation Army to list itself as a “church” to avoid disclosure?
A friend of mine recently pointed out that if you look at those websites like “charity navigator” you will never see the Salvation Army’s financial records because they list themselves as a “church” and therefore are not required to disclose their earnings or expenditures like all the other charities and non-profits.

Should that be changed?
The Salvation Army does NOT have a church where I live… but they are all over the place at Yule harrassing me with those damn bells…

I think that you should have to exchange “disclosure” for “tax-exemption”

you want to be exempt… open the books… that’s the price…

what do churches have to hide anyway?

It’s All About Me!

It’s All About Me!

Why are some "Christians" unfaithful? Why do they lie and deceive others for some perceived need (when some non-Christians would never even think of doing such a thing)?

Why do some non-believers have more Christ-like attributes than some "Christian" do? These "Christians" even praise Jesus, go to church, and evoke His name daily while all the while cheating on a "loved one!"

We see them in the news – we even know them personally.

How do we get lasting peace and lasting joy and know what to do in light of all of the above?

Let me answer the last question first in a very personal way. Then I’ll address the other two.

God has purged out of my life everything and ever person that He knew that should not be in my life.

But, in His goodness and grace He has also replaced them with the people and things He wanted in my life! Some "Christians" are gone and some non-Christians have remained. His ways never seem to be our ways!

I’ve discovered that you can’t get God’s best until you let go of Satan’s substitution for God’s best.

Before February 11, 2011:

It seemed that the more I sought for what was good, truthful, and real the more deception, lies, and unfaithfulness I encountered.

And then something changed!

After February 11, 2011:

I’ve never had a period in my life with more peace and joy.

Also, I’ve never had a period in my life with more blessings of ever kind. So, what had happened?

After a visit with my former 95-year-old Pastor Brother J.B. Young, on February 11, 2011, I decided at all cost to seek God’s face. No matter what it cost I wanted to know Him much better. (Brother Young went to Heaven just three months later on May 21, 2011)

I surrendered my dreams, my needs, my desires, my thoughts, my relationships, my friendships, my family, my past, my present, and my future to Christ. I laid my entire life on His alter and put my life in His total control.

I soon found out that it’s actually easier to do all of the above than to day-in and day-out trust Him with the consequences of that decision. Everyday, I want to self-navigate my life again! Everyday, I want to take the controls back! God takes full responsibility for the consequences of what happens to a life that is totally surrendered to Him.

2 Chronicles 7:14 lays out four things we must all do in order to be in the center of God’s will and to have His peace and His joy, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Let me recap what we need to do: 1) Humble ourselves. 2) Pray. 3) Seek His face. 4) Turn from all our sins. Sorry, but three out of four will not work. I know, I tried that path.

In order to obtain the healing this great verse speaks of and for God to hear our prayers we must do ALL four. Read the verse again; that’s what it says!

Oh, we so want to do the first three, but totally do all of them, including number four, “turn from our sins” – I don’t think so? Not in today’s modern 21st century! “No one does that today!” Well, the “no ones” are wondering why after more relationships, houses, cars, clothes, fancy restaurants, and trips they still have no lasting peace and they still have no lasting joy?

So, you want God to hear your prayers, bless you, give you joy, give you peace, and heal your hurts and disappointments?

Then turn from your sins! How many of them? All of them! No sex before marriage. God really doesn’t care how good you or your boyfriend’s argument is either on this issue. No not giving God your hard-earned money! Are you saying put God before your kids, before your girlfriend/boyfriend, before your spouse, before your job? No, I’m not; He is!

Do you ever say no to a new car, vacation, dress/shirt or gadget (that you really don’t need anyway) because so many are hungry; both physically and spiritually?

Do you teach your kids that lesson too or do you think that by giving them everything that comes down the preverbal pike is how to show your love for them?

Do your children feed the homeless? Do they visit hurting and dying kids at Children’s Hospital? Do you? Or, are they all caught up with gadgets and entertainment more than with the needs of children that have nothing? I wonder were they got that life-pattern from?

The god of this age is pleasure and a never-ending desire for more things.

The god of this age is self. It’s an “all about me” world driven by television, advertising, and movies. More things that can never satisfy that emptiness in our hearts, more pleasures that can never totally satisfy that void in our soul. More mindless gadgets that attempt to fill the hole in our lives but just can’t seem to do it.

When we seek our needs and desires in our time table and through plotting and scheming; what we really are saying to God is, I don’t trust you to provide all my needs. After all God needs our help? Study the life of Abraham and Sarah to see how helping God out worked out for them and thus ever generation since.

As I said before it seemed that the more I sought for what was good, truthful, and real the more deception, lies, and unfaithfulness I found.

Why did it take me so long to realize that Matthew 6:33 is so true? “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

There is a God-created void in all our hearts. It was created by Christ and for Christ. You see He loves you and even me, and wants to have an up-close and personal relationship with us above any other relationship in our lives. Christ alone can fill the emptiness in our souls.

Will you, like the thief on the cross, say yes… to Jesus…today? If so, please pray the prayer below!

Vaya con Dios,
