Christians It’s Gone Bad To Worse!! License to Pray Now Needed! Church Gets Fined By Gov’t For Praying and Worshiping…

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Lisa Haven 


“Christian Persecution – A religious persecution that Christians sometimes undergo as a  consequence of professing their faith, both historically and in the current era. In the two thousand years of the Christian faith, about 70 million believers have been killed for their faith, of whom 45.5 million or 65% were in the twentieth century according to “The New  Persecuted.”


Persecution still remains a present day problem. Even though we may not be in the midst of the trials, they are still happening around us. 


Recently the local government in Lake Worth, Fla. has cracked down KGB style on a local church for worshiping in the church owned coffee shop—No joke!! Could this be some type of government “trial run” to see how the towns people would react? Or is it just due happenstance? Here is the breaking report… 



Here is the Fox News Report…


Whether you want to believe these events are happening or just push them under the rug is up to you, however, these events did occur and unfortunately are still occurring today. For we are getting close to the day that here in American we will suffer extreme persecution. It is at the door! Executive orders have been signed by our President, labor camps have been setup, our government has stockpiled guns and ammo,Christians have been put on the terrorist list.


For the Bible tells us in the last days…


“They will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.” Luke 21:12


We must remember to put our faith, hope, and trust in the Lord. We must be willing to give up everything for an undeniable God whose reality has been relevant since the beginning of time and whose existence we can’t deny. Be ready! Be ready! For extreme persecution is coming to America!

      Just like most amerikans of the christo-CREEP persuasion,
      They “feel” they do NOT have to follow the law! (A coffee shop IS NOT a church, and IS NOT TAXED LIKE ONE, EITHER)!!

      christo-CREEPS FEEL THEY ARE “above” THE LAW!!!
      Follow THE LAW, christo-CREEPS!

      AND NEXT, get ready to PAY YOUR TAXES, christo-LEECHES of ameriiiiSCUM!!!!!!

      Every ONE of your disgusting, LEECHING “Churches” is going to PAY the local property tax, any corporate profit taxes, sales tax on purchases, excise tax owed on vehicles, etc., etc, etc.!

      NO MORE 501 (c) 3 and 501 (c) 4 “non-profit” TAX EXEMPT status for ALL religions in ameriiiiSCUM, as awarded to them by the Federal Government they now “don’t like” anymore!!!!!!!

      and SINGLED OUT, for sure, here in the united Fraudulent Fascist states of TORTURE and MILITARY TERROR!!!!!!!

      YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN YET, christo-CREEPS of ameriiiSCUM!!!!!!!

        I am guessing you would like it if the Muslims were enforcing Shariah Law
        in the the Quran?
        So I guess as a Muslim you do not obey the following: ?Surah 9:5 / Surah 5:33 / Surah 47:4 / Surah 4:95 / Surah 8:15-17/ Surah 8:74
        Surah 47:4 =extortion or DEATH / Surah 61:10 / Surah 3:157 / Surah 2:216-217 / Surah 5:35 Surah 8:39 ( Keep fighting until Islam is the only religion) / Surah 8:57
        Surah 9:29 / Surah 48:16 / Surah12:9-14 / Surah 47:35 / Surah 48:29
        Then you would get to be a murdering Muslim or pay a tax to stay alive. What ever
        YOU sound like a stupid Bureaucrat stuck in your socialist hole.
        What ever, you SUCK your fluoride cool-aid and go back to sleep.

        Know what to physically do once Martial Law starts. This is the time for its citizens to regain full control of our gov, and this gives tactics how to stop your Fed and State gov from their illegal laws over you. If you refuse to do anything, you are telling them that their laws are great, and that you are willing to have your children live under them. But ifyou love freedom, your Ground Zero is your very own smalltown USA. You need to kick your local police from their department because they are the Fed’s and State’s #1 law enforcers, whos one and only job is to contain you with weapons pointed to your head. But if you stop them, you wil be free from the illegal laws, and your community will be free for its citizens to run it. Read what to do in your very own city for freedoms sake.

        I agree, Chris-Lord, the tax exempt status for all churches and religions should be removed forthwith.

      • jc

        Of course we must follow the Law…God’s Law. All rights are God given….neither given by government nor man.

    • anyoneamongUS

      i am anti-gay… i am anti-murder… i am anti-theft… i am anti- anything and everything that THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY HAS SAID is sin…….
      that doesn’t make me perfect, that doesn’t make me better that anyone…….

      people need to realize that not one of us is perfect……. although we must not judge one another, we should encourage one another to live by ALL THE WORD OF GOD…

      to slip-up and sin is human, to knowingly sin because it feels good or right is called, ‘living in sin’ …… there’s a difference here……. GOD ALMIGHTY IS THE DISCERNER OF men’s hearts……. there’s no way to hide the true nature of your heart from THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY WHO CREATED us.

      • CrowPie

        I would rather hear what you are for… in….



        Matt 22:39″The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’


        II Cor. 9:7Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.


        Matt 6:14″For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

        then there is,

        Luke 19:10″For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

        We were all condemned before Christ gave us the gift of Salvation. All was negative before He came. We may now be thankful, joyful in the fullness of His loving gift.

        This does not make us the weaklings that the world believes…..on the contrary. It is all but impossible to defeat an army that finds joy in the spiritual battle.

      Sooooo, Do Christians need a license to hate and incite violence on those that believe differently? Do they need a license to hurt people with their words in the name of their religious freedom? As far as I am concerned, Christians are the true evils. All religions should be wiped off of the face of this planet. Religions are diseases. Religions held our planet back long enough with their flat world mentalities.

      • Larrymh54

        Hate is not what Christians are about. And warning people that they are headed toward destruction is not hate, it’s love. Hate would remain silent and allow the death to occur.

          “Hate is not what Christians are about.”

    • greenghost

      Local codes people are always crazy and always wanting you to get a permit for something. It don’t surprise me. But that is a far cry from persecution that you claim. How many innocent people did the Christians persecute and killl during the crusades and the dark ages persecuting them as heretics and witches? How many indigenous native Americans and native Australians were persecuted and killed by Christians? You like to play the poor pity me game while you are trashing every other religion on the face of the earth and treating them all like dirt. How does it feel when the shoe is on the other foot?

      • 2GodBtheGlory

        You are confusing Christianity with Papal Rome. The Roman Catholic Church is not Christian. They only operate under the guise of Christianity. Non of their actions exemplify that of one who lives by faith and in accordance with the word of God.

        • Big dog.../small fish...

          That is OFFENSIVE. We are far far more christian that any of you bible thumpers.

        • Bill Lyle

          Vast networks of charities, foreign missions…. Oh yeah. BEING FOUNDED BY AN APOSTLE. Yeah, there’s nothing Christian about them….. :lol:

    • 2GodBtheGlory

      This story is very misleading. It never gives the reason why the county government did this. If you read the article you will see that the church was having service in a business that it owns. From a financial and taxation standpoint, it can be viewed as an opportunity for the church to co-mingle business revenue with church financial operations. That can be considered a form of tax evasion. There is no code or regulation that allows a 501(c)3 organization to operate out of a sole proprietorship, llc, or corporation. We don’t have all of the details to make a reasonable objective decision as to why the county would introduce such a law but a careful analysis of the article suggest that there is more to the story. I am a TRUE Christian and do understand that hard times are upon us all, especially Christians, but I wouldn’t risk my credibility by trying to infer something based on incomplete and inconclusive evidence. Lisa I understand your passion but you really need to do your homework and some sound journalistic research before you go all in posting things with little, unreliable, or no evidence or credible sources to support your claims. FOX News is known to lie and manipulate details to make things seem like something that it is not. I would not rely on any FOX News reports or any mainstream media reports for that matter. They all are liars.

      I would just like to add that zionism is aetheistic therefore Christian zionism is not Christian. The zionist political entity in Israel is secular and has no religious affiliation. and in fact persecute Orthodox jewish believers whilst laughing at zionist christian supporters of the political entity of Israel.

      Be that as it may I support Lisa’s coverage of this story although I could not stomach to watch the videos. It shows where Christianity now stands in USA and 2godbetheglory, your argument is pathetic.

      Hello Angle#1,

      Remember Angle#1 as SOON AS YOU EXCEPT THAT LICENSE OR PAY THAT FINE they GOT YOU! All they had to do was whip out the Constitution and tell them where it shows you need a license! It’s guaranteed freedom of worship without government interference.

      And why are they picking on Christians instead of Muslims?

      “In the two thousand years of the Christian faith, about 70 million believers have been killed for their faith, …”

      Actually 1’400 years. Typically biased so you can squeeze in more whining about persecution… they have one thing in common, nearly all of them were killed by other Christians for not being ‘their’ sort of Christian.

      A couple of common, Christian, mental blocks –
      1. Making rational appeals to skepticism. There is no such thing.
      2. Private business, particularly, by invitation, only.

      There are unadvertised, indie restaurants, some serving haute cuisine, others being no more than kitschy, backyard BBQ’s. Segregationists did it. The church in the time of coliseums did it.

      Schismatics and cultists sought equal time at the pulpit, for generations, until it became a motivation speech, and we still manage to be unequally yoked to the pew.

      The countries which we once called savage now send missionaries to Christianize a heathen West.

      the role of a church is to worship…it is a house of prayer. It is a gathering place of believers who encourage and teach what the scriptures speak of.

      To get angry at the fact that a “church” building is selling coffee, an addictive product to some, is rediculous. True beleivers have been so programed into this world that they don’t even notice what the true work of the church is anymore. Or maybe, just maybe, the true belierver is rare and not even in the group of complainers.

      To fight for this is stupid. to say you can not pray is stupid. the true focus of this article is the fact that a church is in the business of “selling” consuming products. Is this what our Savior died for? NO. We are not to worry about what we wear or eat/drink, GOD will provide. I don’t need to give scripture. The dross and the scum is rising to the top of the pot of boiling gold. May the scum leave and the gold shine brighter as to what GOD is intending this to do. Better than the flood of Noah’s day!!!! :)

      Focus on the worldly things and you will fall into it’s trap. Focus on the Savior and you will bend and not break. Be a tree planted by the living waters.

      The scripture says, render unto Ceasar that which is Ceasar’s. The WORLD’s commerce is not ours and the rulers are there for GOD’s purposes to bring about judgment for the righteous and not. It is HIS work to decide which side each person is on. By your fruits they will know you!

    • yeahright

      There should be a per prayer surcharge. Lets say 75¢ payable to the any local pro glbt charity of your choice.
