Government regulates church communion

A government agency that oversees charities in the United Kingdom has decided that a local Christian congregation cannot be registered because it does not open its communion services to just any outsider.

The decision by the U.K.’s Charity Commission is being reported by The Christian Institute, which has been working on the case of the Plymouth Brethren assembly in Devon for seven years.

The government has determined the group cannot be registered because it has decided that its communion services are for members only.

“During the evidence a letter from the commission’s head of legal services emerged claiming that churches cannot be assumed to be acting for the public good,” the report said. ...

Pity. They should lose charitable status for blasphemously claiming to offer flesh and blood to UK Roman Catholics.

No Christian should ever vote for a political party or candidate who fails to uphold the Christian religion and fails to contend against all falsehood, error and heresy.

A Conservative Party MP has accused the government's Charity Commission of attempting to suppress Christianity after the group denied charitable status to the Plymouth Brethren, telling the Brethren that their religion is "not necessarily for the public good".
1. And who wants to go to their local Catholic church to attend mass? Still, it may be that they will lose their charitable status also.
2. I wonder why it has come up just now after so long. Maybe the devil is having his final fling.
3. One has already said that the "church" should avoid guv sponsored tax rebates for those organisations accepted for charitable status. Correct! The church is an "organism" not an organisation. It is the "body of Christ", dependent (supposedly) on God the Father for its sustenance, welfare and finances. God has said to obey the guv, the guv will now tax churches as businesses, so God will provide all that his people need. But....maybe churches will become informal, split into small cells, have no truck with traditions, meet secretly. Oh, you mean like in communist countries? Correct!

If we, in America, do not drop our "Focus on the Family" type Christianity and return to true faith, we WILL get the same. Wake up!

"Without registration, the group would be subject to a number of government restrictions that do not apply to charity organizations.

"The decision “would have a huge impact on the group’s tax relief and would also have other implications,” said the institute in a report.

"The report said the congregation’s elders testified to a select committee of Parliament last week."

Do you agree with the guv then, that the Table of the Lord should be open to allcomers?

Bit like the Catholic church which has its table open only to Catholics.

"A government agency that oversees charities in the United Kingdom has decided that a local Christian congregation cannot be registered because it does not open its communion services to just any outsider."

"cannot be registered" is a good thing but that most likely isn't the end of state intrusion in church business.

1Cr 11:27 ¶ Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink [this] cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of [that] bread, and drink of [that] cup.

For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
