Unless you belong to one of the few churches who have chosen to stand on their own, then the government has control over both church and pastor. He or she can only preach what the gov. says is okay, and all records must be sent to the gov. Why? Just for claiming to be a non-profit org. Any church who does so is selling itself to the governmen. If you care about your freedoms at all, it is long past time to leave these churches. Form a new one of your own, and make sure you keep the government out! It is not so hard to do, and well worth it in the long run.
Many freedoms that were once enjoyed by the church are long gone, how many more must we lose before folk stand up and demand all of the rights and freedoms given by the constitution be returned immediatly, or begin filing criminal charges against those who have stolen them from us. When enough of them are doing years in prison, the rest will give in without a fight. Each of the major denominations are large enough, and rich enough to get this started. That would allow the smaller ones to join in beside them. This is not asking, or even demanding anything that the constitution does not already guarentee each and every person in all fifty States!
If the people do not stand up, what freedom they still have will be taken away. So far the church has allowed themselves to be pushed around and stolen from by the federal and State governments without a fight. Once allowed to start, they will not stop until the church becomes nothing but their slave. Talk about it with those around you, and if you do not already know, study the constitutions of your State and that of the fifty States. You may be surprised at how much you have lost already.
