The real issue
Re: Church gets backing on tax position
This is the common view, which the church leadership/ministers knew.
The general membership thinks that they wont get to heaven if they sided with the governments position. The membership are not being told the Bible truth. (Romans 13:1- 8) Some obvious observations if neither C.C.C.S. or government change their positions.
1. The congregations will pay their ministers taxes.
2. The ministers will pay penalty for breaking law
3. Congregations will go hot (organised protests/revolts)
4. The C.C.C.S. clergy will remember the next election and will campaign for change of government.
The ministers integrity will be sorely tested to report the true amounts. Tuilaepa must be chortling away.
