Should Churches be Tax-Exempt? | HUBpages Contributor Catherine Giordano

It seems the U.S. laws regarding tax exemptions for churches, other religious institutions and non-profit organizations is a carry over from the days of Emperor Constantine. 

But is it really a good idea?


This matter was and is being discussed thoroughly.

Should Churches beTax-Exempt?




These are only partial comments submitted by me and approved by the author.  Completed comments are a bit "windy".  :)
Fair? Unfair? Tax? No tax? Interesting discussion but for the faithful, it's just “much ado about nothing”. Speaking with respect to Christians. Can't speak for the mission of other religious organizations and non-profits, but the mission of the body of Christ is clearly spelled out in Matthew 28: 19 – 20 (and other scriptures). If you don't tax the church, we'll carry out the mission. If you tax the church, we'll carry out the mission. Jesus left the example. He didn't argue about paying taxes. He paid the tax and carried on with His work. (Matthew 22: 21) So the question has already been answered. Whatever the government in any country decides to do ... i.e. taxing, imprisonment, etc, ... the “laborers” will continue God's work until “The Harvest”. Christians don't need government support or approval to know and to do what is right.

Inside AdSense: AdSense help, when and where you need it (Reblog)

How many times have you come close to pulling out all of your hair because you couldn't find an answer to a question about Google AdSense? Never? Ok! Then it's just me who is doing a happy dance in my chair because I finally struck gold! 


It's a Q & A gold mine of questions and answers about AdSense.


Where is it?  Uumm … at an official Google blog. (O.o)

Please! Don't ask me to supply a logical explanation for why I never looked! All I can say is sometimes the things that are clear and obvious don't always register in my brain. I'm like the rest of the brilliant scientists who get credit for their discoveries. Found out accidentally!  It's been discovered and that's what counts!






Another Awesome Discovery!

Should We Get Rid Of Religion? | Article by HUBPages Contributor Nell Rose

Whenever people ask a question and use the word “religion” my response is always the same. Have followed this definition for religion ever since I read it in the epistle written by James the apostle.
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” (James 1:27)
In the first part of the definition you're lending a helping hand to the needy. 

In the second part of the definition the only person whose way of life and behavior you're responsible for “controlling” is your own!

Even if there were not a God looking down at what you do, why wouldn't you do it anyway? So why get rid of it?

  • Don't you want to exercise your own free will over your own life?
  • Don't you have compassion for those who are less fortunate and want to help them if you can?
It's a neat and simple rule, principle or guideline to follow.

You want to get rid of something? 


Get rid of people who abuse, oppress and kill other people and claim they have the “authority” to do it in the name of “religion”.

Of course … that's not so simple.

Good HUB! Very thought provoking. 
A lively discussion going on over at:



The above remarks are my comments left behind. Re-sharing here at my blog because when “thought bursts” like these come to me, sometimes it's good to keep a backup record of them elsewhere.  :)
