Are Josephine County Pastors misleading the county?
Jo-Co Pastors telling people to Blindly Accept all Government Authority.
Grants Pass, Oregon. —People should have major concerns over their churches possessing a 501c3 status and here’s why.
FEMA, DHS, and the EPA have a plan for 501c3 churches called the clergy response teams; it’s mission is to control the masses and the political agendas using a taken out of context version of Romans thirteen that says the congregation must obey government authority and listen to what they’re told without question.
Well, now our New Sheriff Daniels and Police Chief Landis in collaboration with the pastors of some local churches are pushing the Romans 13 theme to get the local levy passed here in Josephine County. Have our elected servants no scruples? Apparently, not.
Romans thirteen was a favorite passage of both Stalin and Hitler. They used it for political control. Pastors with the blessing of Stalin and Hitler told their flock to unconditionally obey the government authority because God put them there. God does not put evil in authority, we blindly do.
Romans 13 is being used out of context in churches across this country with the threat of losing its 501c3 tax exempt status if they don’t comply. That’s unadulterated mafia style extortion. Funny thing is that tax exempt status and free speech for churches was there before the government got involved in churches in1954.
Lyndon Johnson as a senator introduced the Johnson amendment to the IRS code which states; As a 501c3 they cannot; Participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of – or in opposition to – any candidate for public office.
One scholar who studied this extensively concluded that the Johnson Amendment “is not rooted in constitutional provisions for separation of church and state…. Johnson was not trying to address any constitutional issue related to separation of church and state; and he did not offer the amendment because of anything that churches had done.” Read more on this scholarly work.
According to the scholar, “Since its passage in 1954, the Johnson Amendment has been applied to prohibit what a pastor says from the pulpit concerning candidates who are running for elective office. This means that under current IRS regulations, a pastor cannot say anything from the pulpit that may constitute support for – or opposition to – a political candidate”.
From the IRS website on 501-C-3s’ this is the first paragraph:
“To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it 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.” So churches were turned into charities.
Pastor Dennis Webber (Parkway Christian Center, Grants Pass, OR.) tells the people that the governing authority has been established by God, and that they are all God’s servants and must be obeyed and that God gave them permission to be in that authority. This ‘Romans 13’ was the same sermon preached in pre-Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Castro’s Cuba and the Communist Yugoslavia that the NWV editor came from. See the video below.
However, three main churches, the Calvary Crossroads, Parkway Christian Center, and River Valley Church, and others in the area are knowingly going along with the Clergy Response teams. Working in conjunction with local elected government servants here in Josephine County they violate the IRS 501C3 status, and our first amendment right which says;
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Recently a woman posted a complaint about her unnamed church. This is an excerpt from a local Facebook post dated Sun 26 Apr 2015 @ 21:32. The title “The Sermon for Today”.
This was her post verbatim:
“I was very disappointed in church today. I have only been going to church for a couple of years after a forty year break, and up and until today I have been very happy with the church I go to.
I go to worship and for inspiration to deal with my crazy life. Instead, today’s sermon turned into a political presentation in favor of the levy measure, complete with five minute video featuring the Sheriff and Police Chief, after which we were told that God wants us to support authority and to do that we must vote yes or we are ignorant and rebelling against God.
I was already planning to vote no but if I hadn’t yet made up my mind this would have decided it for me. I have a firm belief in the separation of church and state and I think it should go both ways. In my opinion this was completely inappropriate and I am seriously considering changing churches at this point.” Signed, Terry Hicks.
Quote: “The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.” —James Madison
Rebelling against God? Well, many of us have heard the saying, “Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God”. All 501c3 church goers that witness this kind of behavior have a decision to make. Go with God or with the government liars, corrupt elected servants, and sell out pastors. There’s no fence riding on this one. Government is not your God; they give nothing but take away all they can.
The intent of constantly asking for a levy to pass, is so that your property taxes keep rising until you no longer can pay and your property is seized.
If you have experienced this Romans 13 rhetoric with your pastor and church there is a simple solution to this, ask your church pastor if they are a 501c3 tax exempt church. If so, tell the pastor what you think about his out of context reference to Romans thirteen and walk out of his congregation never to return.
Pastors will start getting the message real soon when their churches on Sundays look as lonely as a church on Monday morning, otherwise they will return their loyalty to God and the congregation where it belongs.
FEMA, DHS, and the EPA have churches and congregations breaking IRS rules, the first amendment, using the Johnson amendment and extortion to do it, by telling them they will lose their tax exempt status if they don’t shut up and violate the IRS, and Bill of Rights so as to remain in business. It may sound preposterous but it’s true. This is being done in preparation for martial law, gun confiscation, and the theft of private property, resources and forced relocation.
Pastors all over the country are being silenced by the governments Clergy Response Teams and IRS thugs, but a few brave souls have come forward to expose the lawlessness.
According to truthnews.com one Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.

The real expert on this subject is Pastor Chuck Baldwin. Here is one of his articles about the fallacy of Romans 13.
Is the pastors’ right to free speech being violated by the IRS, and the government using the Johnson amendment, and Romans thirteen? Or are Terry Hicks rights being violated to be able to go to church without harassment from sell out Pastors using an government agenda to trick people into reacting a certain way, influenced by a misconstrued passage that was used by Stalin and Hitler to make the flocks submit to government control? Answer is, both. Some pastors are caught between a rock and a hard place and some are just sell outs but the congregations are not there for state political banter either.
Thank God that pastors in the founding of this Republic we call America didn’t teach Romans 13 or we would still be under King George ruled by the British monarchy.
It has not always been this way. For almost the first 200 years of America’s history, pastors frequently spoke out with great boldness about the great moral and social issues of the day and about the candidates running for office. However, this was done without any threats to the churches right to speak and operate freely.
What would the pastors really say with the nanny state government out of the way? Would the congregations listen to the message if the pastors were able to speak honestly and freely or will they at least have the right to freedom of choice to worship in their own way without state interference? This would definitely be a different country from a political and religious stand point.
Our choices in most everything are being eliminated one by one. Soon if people don’t wake up, there will be a one world government with a one world religion, a one world army, a one world police force, and a one world economy designed around energy consumption monitored with smart meters and smart appliances surveilling you 24/7 and taxing you by the mile when you drive. I don’t know about you but this sounds like George Orwells’ book 1984 on steroids.
[Editors note: The Josephine County good-ol-boys want this levy to pass in the worst way. They need your money to create a Big Brother Police State Surveillance Society in Josephine County. People Monitoring Surveillance Cameras are already in 8 locations throughout the city with more on the way. It’s all for our good and safety we’re told. The whole thing is a big government lie with the backing of some local pastors.
In Chicago there is a camera on every street corner and that started with a few cameras all in the name of ‘public safety’. Yet, Chicago is the crime capital of America. The city of London started in the same manner being told it’s for crime deterrent now they have over a million cameras through-out the city. Surveillance cameras are not keeping the people safe, they are watching you 24/7 and enriching themselves at your expense. Not to mention the lost of freedom.]
NWV will reveal how your high paid public servants want to:
1- Put meters on your well to monitor your water consumption.
2- The power company (working with the government) will install (by force) a Smart Meter on your house so they can monitor your electric consumption.
3- Fine you for burning wood to heat your home for polluting the air
4- Charge you for every mile you drive your gasoline powered car.
5- Confiscate food storage from the people during a manufactured or natural crisis.
6 – Create a snitch society to turn your neighbor in for anything that the government deems inappropriate. (It’s called, “See something say Something”)
7- Create Community Oriented Policing.
All they need to accomplish this is your money and blind trust.
