Incorporation Brings You Under the Law

The Embassy of Heaven Church has been called to separate itself from the State government. That's what makes us unique. We are not an extension of the State. We are separate. The State and the Church are two completely different governments. Someone might see a member of the Embassy of Heaven Church doing something that is not normal, like traveling without State license plates. They say, "Our church doesn't get to do that." That's right. Incorporated churches have agreed to abide by all the laws of the State. Otherwise, they'll lose their corporate charter. They have put themselves under the law and must obey the State, regardless of what the legislature does. The Embassy of Heaven Church has made no agreements with the State.6 2 Corinthians 6:14-17 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people." Therefore "Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you." The Church has not bound herself under whatever regulatory bodies the legislature wants to establish.

I think we need a definition of government. All governments are formed by two or more gathering together for a common purpose. I think that would be a legitimate definition. When the State of Oregon formed their government they referenced a group of people as "We the People." Now when they said "We," they didn't mean everybody, just those who considered themselves as "We the People." They came together for common purpose and wrote a constitution. They also empowered a legislature to write bylaws. These bylaws are also known as statutes. The State also provided for incorporating into that body. In other words, municipalities, businesses and nonprofit organizations could become one body with the State, united under a common purpose.

Today, almost all the churches have incorporated into the body of the State. The State churches, let's name them, Lutheran, Methodist, Assembly of God, Seventh Day Adventist, Catholic, and all the other denominations out there, have incorporated and become a part of the State body. That's why if you become a member of one of those State churches, you've already agreed, by your membership in that church, to abide by the State laws and to settle controversies according to State methods.
