My response to preachers who condemn ministries who are operating under 501 (c) 3
Obviously they could not qualify for this exemption or they would know the truth about this category. I wonder if they know that thousands of non Christian charitable organizations like hospitals etc. operate under this category. It takes five years to qualify, which is done by the IRS who moniters their finances.
President Trump has taken away the one mandate that churches had to obey by and that is telling their congregation who to vote for. The government does absolutely not give orders of any kind to these organizations.
There is only one reason this arrangement was made available and that is for the IRS to control donations and how they are being spent.
There are a number of ministries that receive as much as $100 million annually and the IRS wants to know if these donations are spent properly. These ministries have to file long annual reports. They get audited by Certified Public Accountants. I truly believe that this process is appropriate.
