When ‘ONE’ happens, real Christianity, God’s glory revealed “that the world will know” (John 17), churches won’t have to be 501(c)3 tax exempt in order for people to give. The people will readily give from what they’ll easily determine in their hearts to give, instead of under the compulsion of old covenant tithing, which is barely keeping the dead things’ doors open.
“Let each man give according as he has determined in his heart; not grudgingly, or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:7

Roberts Warns Churches Could Lose Tax-Exempt Status For Opposing Gay Marriage
Churches could lose their tax-exempt status with the IRS if they refuse to recognize the Supreme Court’s ruling Friday legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts warned in his dissenting opinion.
He cited a comment made months ago by the U.S. government’s top lawyer on the same-sex marriage case.
“Hard questions arise when people of faith exercise religion in ways that may be seen to conflict with the new right to same-sex marriage — when, for example, a religious college provides married student housing only to opposite-sex married couples, or a religious adoption agency declines to place children with same-sex married couples,” Roberts wrote.
[Roberts continues:] “Indeed, the Solicitor General candidly acknowledged that the tax exemptions of some religious institutions would be in question if they opposed same-sex marriage. See Tr. of Oral Arg. on Question 1, at 36–38. There is little doubt that these and similar questions will soon be before this Court. Unfortunately, people of faith can take no comfort in the treatment they receive from the majority today.”
