Why should churches get a TAX BREAK?
Jesus Christ commanded His disciples to go into all the world and to preach the gospel, to make DISCIPLES of all nations, NOT to build churches.
A disciple is a person who follows Jesus Christ, who is led by the Holy Spirit. A church organization is a SECULAR INSTITUTION run by people. The TRUE CHURCH, the BODY OF CHRIST are INDIVIDUALS who are led by the Holy Spirit of God. That is why there are no disciples. There are millions of churches, secular organizations, TAX FREE INSTITUTIONS, the family business of the proprietor, the ASSETS of the ORGANIZATION, of kingdoms on earth but they are not part of the kingdom of God.
Jesus Christ said:"Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth where moth and rust do destroy but save up for yourselves treasures in heaven because where your treasure is there your heart will be also." He never commanded His disciples to build churches but to make DISCIPLES.
Churches are secular institutions, they are not even charities, they do not look after the poor. They build empires for themselves which they expand all over the world to increase their influence. It is THEIR empire which is in direct opposition to the kingdom of God because they are not making disciples of Jesus Christ . They are building organizations that fight each other. Churches fight each other for membership, they are not in UNITY. They are DIVIDED, they are dividing the believers because people belong to churches and not to the kingdom of God.
The kingdom of God is not divided. It is ONE. If we have ONE Father and Jesus Christ is our Lord and we are led by the Holy Spirit then we are of the SAME SPIRIT and we are not divided, we love each other and we serve our Father, but people serve their churches and they fight "holy wars" against each other but they are not following Jesus Christ. They believe they have salvation because they belong to the institution but they do not know nor follow Jesus Christ. They are not DISCIPLES. Jesus Christ called us to be DISCIPLES. He is the WAY and the TRUTH and the LIFE and we have to FOLLOW Him to have eternal life. Believing in Jesus, belonging to a church, will not save you, it will take you to HELL.
Do not follow after churches and church leaders but follow after Jesus Christ. Do not support and build that institution of men but invest yourself into the kingdom of God, where your treasure will not be lost. Why should churches that are secular organizations, why should they not pay tax when their proprietors benefit from the TAXES that they levy from their members?
Become part of the kingdom of God. Serve and follow Jesus Christ. build up your treasure in Heaven where you will not be taxed.
May Jesus bless you.
