IRS To Attend Church. Chance For Salvation?

The IRS has settled a lawsuit which began in 2012 by Freedom From Religion Foundation reportedly agreeing to adopt standards for determining and investigating whether churches and religious organizations have violated restrictions on political activity.

One will have to wait to see what policies were agreed upon in such settlement so churches will know how they will be treated.  One would assume that any actions by the IRS will be directed to churches who have applied for and received 501(c)3 status from the IRS.  According to a report from, “The IRS has agreed to pay closer attention to what is said in houses of worship.”

It will be interesting to see how the IRS is planning to ‘pay closer attention to what is said’ in church.  Do they send in agents to take notes, will they rely on atheists affiliated with the Freedom From Religion Foundation, will they order cds or dvds, or will they monitor streaming or radio services?

The good news is that the ‘closer attention’ may give the Lord an opportunity to use the services to draw the individuals closer to Him or to lead them to salvation.  Not that all IRS agents need saved.  My interaction with the IRS has allowed me to speak with many believers in their exempt organizations section.

Could be that the Lord will use this in a beneficial way.   As Joseph noted, “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” Genesis 50:20.
