by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church – 501c3 = Lame Excuse Not to Go to Church
Editor’s note: Either Pastor Anderson is getting some pretty enormous push back from within his own church over a multitude of issues, or he’s decided the best way to recruit for his hate group is by blogging because he’s blogging sometimes two and three times a day now. This is a muddled mess of word salad that has to do with tax status of a church. Check out the hysterical clip of ‘King of the Hill’s Bobby Hill eating potato chips Anderson is using to illustrate this bit. Or if you’re really desperate for a laugh read Anderson’s posting explaining social media for dummies – The Green Grass of Social Media.
Many of these tax laws are designed to prevent political organizations from getting the tax benefits of a church. Why would any legitimate pastor want to spend more than 5% of his time trying to influence an election, which is probably rigged anyway? I know I don’t. Whether a church is a 501c3 or not, it is automatically tax exempt—so long as it is set up as some kind of legal church. Faithful Word Baptist Church is not a political organization–we are here to spread the gospel and edify the saints. I try to provide a balanced diet with my sermons, but I will never refrain from preaching on the less popular parts of the Bible, even if it does eventually become illegal.
Don’t believe everything you read or hear on the internet, folks. Cult-like preachers are envious of legitimate ministries and will often bring up straw-man arguments to try to slander them. When you go to a bona-fide church, whether it is 501c3 or not, your donations are tax deductible. On the other hand, giving money to some self-appointed lunatic that happens to have a camcorder and a youtube channel is not deductible. Rest assured that Faithful Word is not a 501c3, but don’t come to me making railing accusations against a brother in Christ that happens to file differently than we do. This is simply not a Bible issue, and when you call godly men false teachers, you are bearing false witness against them.
