Powerless Preachers: “Independent Contractors” Fearing Ignatius’ Revenue Service
America’s utter dearth of powerful preachers of the Gospel of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ is superabundant and acute. Most are aware of the foremost reasons as to why God has withdrawn his hand of blessing over our once Great White Anglo-Saxon-Celtic Protestant and Baptist/Calvinist-founded Constitutional Federal Republic, “These United States of America” (1789-1868), birthed by our “American Joshua,” George Washington—the greatest man of his age. The foremost reasons, of which we are quite aware, include the use of Rome’s non-Reformation English Bibles (particularly the abandonment of the AV1611), association with the Pope’s National Council and World Council of Churches, as well as the applying for and receiving the federal privilege of 501(c)(3) status—that trap of the Pope’s inquisitional IRS (Ignatius’ Revenue Service).
Your Editor, however, maintains there is another hidden and most abominable reason for the lack of the filing of the Holy Ghost (Ephesians 5:18) among God-called preachers at this late hour in “His-Story” of Man. That reason is: the Man of God, though unaware of his plight, has become a hireling, a “businessman” in the pulpit conducting church affairs as though it is, yes, just another commercial business. This is a departure from the Baptist Distinctive of Separation of an organized Church from an organized State or Federal Government. By entering into commerce (“friendship and intercourse” as defined by the Supreme Court), the Man of God has submitted to the unlimited power of the Congress to regulate commerce, its enforcer being the Federal Courts; its collector being the IRS. This means the Man of God has unwittingly united the Local Church of the Blessed Lord Jesus Christ with the Pope’s commercial world system overseen by Satan—“the god of this world” (II Cor. 4:4). Therefore Satan, using his Jesuit Papacy, has become the master of American Local Churches; the Blessed Holy Spirit of God never descends on the assembly, never empowering the Preacher to preach with unabashed boldness, and never ever heavily convicting believers of sin bringing sorrowful repentance and serious forsaking of personal transgressions.
Yes, the Preacher is a hireling, an unwitting agent of Rome. Why? Well, virtually every Baptist preacher of today is paid by the Local Church he pastors as an “independent contractor.” He files his annual 1040 “IRS Return” as an “independent contractor,” fills out his “Schedule C,” and pays the commercial income/excise/privilege tax on the monies he receives for his “ministry.” This is an abomination before Jesus Christ: for his Wife, the Church (II Cor. 11:2), is now committing spiritual adultery with Satan via the devil’s international commercial system building world government for the coming, final Pope of Rome, slain and risen from the dead to be the Antichrist/Man-Beast.
The solution is simple. The Preacher must never become an “independent contractor.” He must stay out of commerce as a Bishop exercising his spiritual gift of Pastor-Teacher over the Local Church of which Christ has made him the overseer (Acts 20:28). Every penny he receives is being given to him by the Local Church as he lives of the Gospel. The Man of God is the Minister of Christ and with this high, holy and separate calling, must keep himself “unspotted from the world” (James 1:27). In so doing, he must maintain his position of being separate from commerce. The unincorporated, non-501(c)(3) Local Church he oversees is protected by Section 508(c)(1)(A), the church with its “integrated auxiliaries,” being classed as “Mandatory Exceptions” to the reach of the Internal Revenue Code. The Minister is an Integrated Auxiliary of the Local Church. All the monies he receives as a result of his ministry is not “exempt” from the income/excise/privilege tax; rather, it is EXCEPTED. And Why? because the Congress has no power to tax the properties or the monies of any Church which includes its “integrated auxiliaries.” And how do we know this? the answer is found in the Baptist-Calvinist First Amendment:
“Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; . . .”
One last fact: No Roman Catholic Bishop, Archbishop or Cardinal composing the American Roman Hierarchy pays one penny on any monies he receives for performing his “duties” through the office he holds. He is an integrated auxiliary of the Pope’s Church and therefore knowingly enjoys the protection of the “heretic and liberal” American Constitution, his monies and records being out of reach of the Internal Revenue Code via his “mandatory exception.”
