SERMON INFO
Most churches in America are structured as corporations. Most readily 501c3 corporations. But here at Mercy Seat we are not a state corporation. We are opposed to being so. We have a strong conviction against being such.

And that of course raises the question – why?

This sermon lays out the principle and conviction as to "why" not. It also addresses some of the nuts and bolts of functioning as an unincorporated church; and it exposes and responds to the three most common reasons churches do incorporate. 38 min. MercySeat.net

"A more certain way to attack religion is by favor, by the comforts of life, by the hope of wealth; not by what reminds one of it, but by what makes one forget it; not by what makes one indignant, but by what makes men lukewarm, when other passions act on our souls, and those which religion inspires are silent. In the matter of changing religion, State favors are stronger than penalties.”
The Spirit of the Laws, Baron de Montesquieu (1748)

“ A Vision of A Great Whore ”
Expect this blog to be flooded with comments as well as true revival in true blood bought churches. This message shows why pastors succumb to pressures of ungodly men.

“ Amazing Message ”
CORRECTION: I meant to say that this message shows how Caesar has authority of many churches. Listen to learn the root cause of many of our troubles.

“ A Message from Heaven ”
“Free of government control?” The sovereign One grants it through the atoning work of Christ Who wants that? Matthew Trewhella, you are sent by God who wants all men to be free; indeed. Thank you for the warnings and reminders of why we partake of communion. By this you show that you are for the souls of men. Thank you. And praise God for his work through you.

“ An Eye-opening Message ”
The Church “an artificial person?” Say what?????

“ Great Sermon! ”
The love of money is the root of all evil.

“ Great Sermon! ”
American Christians are as you say, “Tied to stuff.” We are encumbered with things that prevent us from giving to the poor; as we ought. Christ has truly set us from the lusts of the flesh. Thank you for showing how the church has to submit to Caesar. Uninformed Christians can find themselves subject to wicked laws do do wicked things because it has given Caesar authority that belongs to Christ.
