Jesus and Government

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Paul Green

One at least, the "FourSquare" denomination, actually incorporates government as one of the four "squares" or pillars of their existence. Other churches have been directly created by and remain under overall government control. Many supposedly independent churches exist under special state privilege, state funding or a tax exemption not enjoyed by their members – in return for reporting to the state, keeping quiet on sensitive subjects, and complying with various requirements.

Whatever the varying details of each church "philosophy of government"; almost all are agreed about one thing: The divine creation and ordination of government itself.

And yet… not one can point to that moment of ordination:In the beginning, God did not create a hierarchical group. Adam was created as a free individual – able even to choose wrongly against God. When he did so and caused the fall of mankind after him, there is no record that God then established government in order to somehow compensate for sin.

Notice the word "Exceptions." bo8 organizations are completely outside of IRS authority. Go ahead. Play the 501 c 3 IRS game.
