Pastors want to be able to take a legal stand against government forced marriage, they must do these things!
1. Stop signing ANY marriage license, even at the State Level.
Do you believe that Marriage is a covenant between an man, woman, and God? Then you have to act like it. Refusing to marry by any government sanction is the ONLY way you will defeat this mandate in court.
2. Relinquish your 501c3 status IMMEDIATELY. You don't need the IRS's approval to be tax exempt. That comes from the Constitution. Who is your provider anyway? Remember, you can't serve two masters!
3. Start teaching your congregation to be God dependent instead of government dependent. Teach your congregation to stop marrying by license for government benefits. Teach your congregation to stop tithing for government benefits. Remember: seek ye first the Kingdom of God...NOT government benefits.
4. Live by faith. Speak TRUTH. Stop being a slave to government and man. Learn to obey God NOT men. Acts 5:29
