"Put on the whole armor of God [God's Word and Law], that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." 
[Ephesians 6:11-13, Bible, NKJV]

1.  INTRODUCTION

Some or our readers have commented that it is difficult to find churches that preach PDF God's Law and Word to Christians in a biblically sound way that allows them to practically integrate their faith into their families and the secular aspects of their daily life.  This is no accident, but one of the many casualties of creating 501(c )(3) tax exempt status for churches under the I.R.C. starting in 1954 with President Lyndon Johnson.  In their greed and insecurity and idolatry towards government, churches that have taken advantage of this status and had it recognized by the IRS have basically substituted the headship of Christ over their church for the headship of government.  This is analyzed in sermon 6.3 below entitled "Trading God for a Man". 

Pastors and their flocks in present American Christianity are taught the lie that "government is good", when in fact, our political history proves the opposite.  The Bible, on the other hand, refers to government as "the Beast" in Rev. 19:19.  Churches who have bowed down to worship Caesar in violation of the Bible have basically become incorporated businesses in partnership with the government as franchise contractors.  Subtitle A of the Internal Revenue Code is the PDF franchise contract, and it obligates no one to do anything unless they consent to become "taxpayers" by engaging in excise taxable activities.  This church/government business partnership is called a "PDF trade or business" in 26 U.S.C. 7701(a)(26), and the reason that churches falsely believed they needed 501(c )(3) status to begin with is because of PDF government lies and a deficient legal and public education system that has dumbed down the average American in the subject of law and government.  The result is that most Americans and the churches they attend have become what the Soviets call "Useful Idiots" to tyrants and dictators.  Churches have simply become MUCH too cozy with the government Beast, and fail to realize that in fact, Church and State have historically been competitors for the affections, worship, and obedience of the people until only very recently.  This little known fact is analyzed at great length in Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302, section 4.3.5 entitled "How government and God compete to provide 'protection'".  Congressman Ron Paul also explains this dichotomy in the article below:

In some early European countries, for example, Churches were used as a means to extend control of the state over the people and became just another branch of government, essentially.  An example of this was the early Anglican Church, which was established by the English King.  The King of England basically must have concluded: "If you can't beat them, then join them or buy them out with favors!"  The Romans turned their political dominion during Christ's time into its equivalent later on in a slightly altered form of government called the Catholic Church.

Because of this Church idolatry towards government, most churches don't dare challenge the Golden calf that has replaced Christ called Government.  Consequently, they have ceased preaching doctrine relating to any of the subjects discussed in the sermons on this page for fear of being confrontational or political.  Apparently, many pastors are more concerned about scaring the sheep away or lowering tithes than they are with truth, justice, or social responsibility, which by the way are also aspects of Christ's and believers ministry.  We discuss this and many other aspects of the corruption of American Christianity in the following resources on this website:

  1. PDF Policy Document: Corruption Within Modern Christianity, Form #08.012
  2. PDF What Pastors and Clergy Need to Know about Government and Taxation, Form #12.006
  3. PDF The Crisis of Church Incorporation, Form #13.017
  4. PDF Should Christians Always Obey the State?, Form #13.004

As Pastor Trewhella insightfully and passionately explains in his "Social Gospel" sermon below and as revealed by the statistical studies of George Barna, corrupted churches and pastors would seem to want the congregation to leave God at church while they live the remaining six days of the week in a hypocritical spiritual vacuum just like every one of their heathen hell-bound neighbors.  Below are the taboo subjects that you simply won't hear fearful, government-terrorized pastors talk about:

  1. Personal sovereignty and Christian liberty.
  2. Separation of church and state.
  3. Christian citizenship.
  4. Ministry in areas other than salvation, such as teaching the church congregation how to apply God's laws to secular and political affairs.
  5. Morality within government.
  6. The biblical role of government in society.

This profound corruption of American Christianity over about the last 100 years has left a vacuum both of information and of fellowship for those devoted Christians who know the truth of this matter and want to learn more.  Our own search for useful materials on the above subjects, for instance, have  confirmed the truth these conclusions.  We have therefore devoted extensive research to locate these materials and consolidate and organize them here in order to accelerate your learning.  By doing so, we hope to help to properly train and equip you for the spiritual battle with government and your deceived fellow Christians as a warriors in God's righteous (but NOT self-righteous) army. 

The theology on this page comes primarily from those in the Reformed Theology arena.   Reformed theology is sometimes called Calvinism. Several pastors have expressed interest in the materials on this site and they are all from Reformed Theology.  You can find out more about Reformed Theology at:

  3. Studies in Reformed Theology
  4. Reformation Theology
  5. Ligionier Ministries -R.C. Sproul

  1. Continental Reformed.
  2. Presbyterian.
  3. Congregationalist.
  4. World Communion of Reformed Churches.
  5. World Reformed Fellowship.
  6. International Conference of Reformed Churches.

The books that most closely summarize our approach to theology are the following:

  1. The Institutes of Biblical Law-Rousas John Rushdoony.  Fascinating and very enlightening book which examines Biblical Law and its relation to man's law.  Highly Recommended. Our favorite book.
  2. PDF Laws of the Bible, Form #13.001
  3. PDF Five Pillars of the Gladiator Gospel, Form #17.004- Brook Stockton. SEDM's own associated pastor.

The information appearing on this page comes usually from small, rural, isolated churches that have not yet become incorporated or privileged.  The pastors are all very seasoned and we hope you will enjoy their very insightful and academic analysis, which is rare coming from the pulpits in this universally deluded day and age.  Please take the time to call up and thank these wise and brave men of God who preached these wonderful sermons.  They are the last bastion of hope and a candle in the almost complete darkness of our age.  If you wish to review some of the additional resources we have located on this subject which are not revealed here, may we recommend the following sources on the Internet:

  1. Pastor's Corner -SEDM's own associated pastor, Brook Stockton, writes extensively on the subjects on this site from an academic and theological perspective. We published several of his extensive theological treatises in Section 1.17 of the Forms/Pubs page.

2.4.  POLICY DOCUMENT: CORRUPTION WITHIN MODERN CHRISTIANITY

Modern Christian churches, pastors, and parishoners are communicating and teaching false or erroneous doctrine about important and fundamental biblical concepts that clearly conflicts with the revealed word of God in the Holy Bible. These false beliefs and the deception they produce:

  1. Make Christians politically irrelevant within secular society.
  2. Undermine the authority of the Bible as a source of law or morality.

  3. Discredit and undermine Christians and Christianity by making them look hypocritical, delusional, and presumptuous.
  4. Cause idolatry towards government.
  5. Destroy any possibility that Christians will assert or defend the sovereignty they received from God in a legal or political context.

It is very important that Christians be informed about this deception and have to tools to fight it and fix it.  You can use this document to educate yourself, your loved ones, and members of your church about the deception.  Below is the link to the article from our Forms page.

He was a prolific author and wrote over 20 books. His writings are short and simple. He was also a prolific speaker heard on 40 radio stations shortly before his death from a heart attack. His website contains over 879 sermons! His ministry was continued by:

  2. Ben Williams, who was his assistant Pastor at the time of his death.

Sheldon talked mostly about the following subjects:

  1. How to apply your faith to the political and church areas.

  3. Government corruption.
  4. Corruption of churches.
  5. Misinterpretation of God's word.

The foundation of biblical morality is what is called "The Golden Rule", which requires that we must do to others what we want them to do to us.  Matt. 7:12.  We emphasize the Golden Rule, for instance, to members who seek help but who refuse to reciprocate by helping or donating to us.  That is why we ask them, before we help them, what they have done to DESERVE or EARN the right to be helped: 

"You can only DESERVE or have a RIGHT to that which you are willing to GIVE and to EARN.  That's a corollary to The Golden Rule in Matt. 7:12: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  It is also a restatement of the requirement for equal protection and equal treatment that is the foundation of American jurisprudence."

You can only deserve what you are willing to give and earn.  If you SOW indifference, irresponsibility, and lack of commitment on your part, you can and most assuredly will REAP it and deserve it from us.  That is the Golden Rule spoken of by Jesus:  Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Anything worth having is worth earning, and we will make sure you earn it if you expect our help.  This is NOT "unchristian" or satanic, but simply God's own stated approach to freedom in the Bible.  This concept also happens to be the foundation of the concept of equal protection and equal treatment under the law.
