Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego were tossed into a fiery furnace because they would not bow to an Idol. However, they were the only ones who stood in start opposition to what the king demanded of his people. Everyone else caved under pressured and bowed out of fear of being thrown into the furnace. Sadly, this is exactly what we see happening today. Many churches are ‘caving under the pressure’ of the government and allowing them to limit what they can and can’t say.
How is this happening? By a little thing called the 501c3. To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates .
In other words, churches are not allowed to participate in any campaign or promote any candidate, even if that candidate is a Christian. As a result our politics have gone to the crapper and furthermore, this is why Christians in government are few and far between. Since no one is backing them, they don’t win, which is exactly what our government wanted. Churches caving under pressure and as result evil has won the White House, The House of Representatives, Congress, and the Judicial system.
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bears rule, the people mourn.” Prov. 29:2
So Yes! I mix religion and politics, because politics keeps intruding upon my religious freedoms! Therefore I will stand in stark opposition to things that hinder what the church can or can’t say, because eventually they will add more verbiage to these documents, and more of our freedoms will ripped from us. It is only a matter of time. As of now, the government has begun their invasion on the churches….starting with the 501c3….
