Obama IRS Now Targeting Churches

Barb Wire

The Obama administration knows that Christians are the greatest threat to his far-left agenda.

That’s why his subordinates at the Department of Justice were more than willing to settle a lawsuit with the Freedom From Religion Foundation by offering the services of the IRS to target “rogue political churches.”

They plan to uncover potential “illegal” political activities or “electioneering” by America’s conservative churches in the months leading up to the 2014 mid-term elections.

In Barack Obama’s America, the Left has taken unprecedented steps to attack religious and individual freedom. Having already admitted to targeting conservative groups, the IRS has doubled down and says it will now monitor churches.

The enemies of true freedom have systematically undermined the foundations of our society in such a way that the entire American enterprise is hanging by a thread.  We could easily lose this nation if, as a culture, we don’t return to our moral and spiritual foundations.

The fiery orator and patriot Patrick Henry, perhaps best known for his “Give me liberty or give me death” speech to the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1775, said, “The American Revolution was the grand operation, which seemed to be assigned by the Deity to the men of this age in our country.”

Not since the American Revolution has it been more important that pastors and preachers fully engage the issues of the day in both politics and the culture.

If you are concerned with the erosion our religious rights, the subversion of the rule of law, the immoral mandates being rammed down our collective throats, and an out-of-control government with a reckless President at the helm, then you can come to the aid of our nation.

It is time for pastors and patriots alike to stand up. It is time for the Church to be the Church – God’s people must rise up.

I passionately believe that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord will lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19).  In our day, that standard is entrusted to the Church.

That’s why it is so important to educate, equip, and support the pastors who provide leadership to America’s Christians.

To that end, Liberty Counsel has developed the Pastors and Patriots initiative, with two invaluable resources compiled through decades of experience defending the rights of pastors, church leaders, and leaders of non-profit organizations that address issues of concern and dispel the myths.

The DVD Silence is NOT an Option and The Patriot’s Handbook of Political Action for Pastors and Churches are “must-have” references and teachings for every church and nonprofit organization in America. (Click here to learn more)

Our forefathers were not intimidated about professing religion and morality   

The Founders believed that “Religion and Morality” were the twin pillars upon which America was built. By “religion” they meant faith that arose from a Judeo-Christian belief system.

John Quincy Adams said, “Our Constitution is made only for a moral and a religious people.” George Washington went so far as to say that anyone who undermines these twin pillars is not a patriot.

Like any seasoned warriors on the battlefield for the minds and hearts in a culture, we must “count the cost” for reclaiming the ground that has been lost to liberal progressives intent on establishing a secular-socialist state on American soil.

The reality is that we are facing powerful and dangerous adversaries on the crucial battlefield for American culture. We simply cannot back down, no matter how difficult this battle becomes.  The enemies of true freedom know that this is a “do or die” moment for their subversive cause.

But we know that with God’s help and the faithful prayers of His people, we can turn back the destruction of our culture by anti-Christian forces. Please help advance the mobilization efforts of pastors and patriots now – in advance of the 2014 elections.

It’s time for the body of Christ to be salt and light in an America that needs it now more than ever.
