1. Unfortunately, your 'conclusions' are based upon your personal observation of a miniscule part of society and the visible church. It is virtually impossible to conclude anything from them. Now, they certainly appear to have grabbed hold of your emotions and you try to make sense of all this and to that you must deal with personally.

2. With all the links you have provided on what is happening in Canada and the angst that is going on in your own family and church(es) around you, one thing is for sure in regard to any and all churches... Do NOT... EVER... register to be a non-profit organization with the government. nono Too many churches do this on the elusive possibility of financial gain and tax benefits. Once you register with the government, whether local, state or federal, you are under their 'yoke' and are subject to their whimsical edits. Christ is LORD of His church and the Spirit is more than capable of making provisions for the Church without the government's HELP. Is there even a hint anywhere in the entire Bible that any of God's children joined the government in power in order to obtain some 'benefit'? Contrariwise, I read especially in the NT that the Church prayed constantly to GOD for help and not infrequently to be delivered from the government. Where are the churches today who boldly proclaim the SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD, yet fail to show even a flicker of reliance upon GOD's authority, power and love for His own? [Linked Image]
