THE MOSES MODEL PASTORS
CALVARY CHAPEL CHURCH GOVERNMENT:
“…MOSES WAS THE EARTHLY LEADER WHO WAS RECOGNIZED AS RECEIVING FROM GOD THE GUIDANCE, DIRECTION, LAWS AND RULES FOR THE NATION. IT WAS RECOGNIZED BY THE PEOPLE THAT HE WAS THEIR LINK TO GOD. THEY SAID, “LOOK WE’RE AFRAID TO APPROACH HIM. HE’S AWESOME”…”
“…AS PASTORS, WE NEED TO BE LIKE MOSES…”
(above directive is quoted verbatim from the DISTINCTIVES written by Chuck Smith – refer to his page to learn more)
TO THE MOSES MODEL PASTORS
Until now, ‘Moses Model’ pastors have never been held accountable to the church, or to the IRS, for how they use and/or abuse the ‘tithe'; mainly because the ‘Moses Model’ pastors are not accountable to anyone, not even a Board. This must change for the sake of the integrity of the church. The Calvary Chapel denomination is governed in accordance with the ‘DISTINCTIVES’ written by Chuck Smith, which specifically outlines, in part, bylaws, directives, and the church government monarchy (hence, the ‘Moses Model’ pastor). Chuck Smith’s way of “playing” church is illegal and not biblical. You can read more about this at Chuck Smith’s page and Calvary Chapel Association’s page.
The sole purpose of this website is to expose Calvary Chapel and the corrupt ‘Moses Model’ pastors, aka: business men who disguise themselves as pastors. “…BY THEIR FRUIT YOU SHALL KNOW THEM…” (Matthew 7:15-20)
TO THE CHURCH
The Calvary Chapel denomination currently allows any man to be a pastor (no background check), whether he is a convicted felon, sexually immoral, a thief, deceitful…you just have to know how to read the bible (singing will help too). History proves that there are so many Calvary Chapel pastors who have proven to not be honorable and trustworthy men. Please notify me if you know of any ‘Moses Model’ pastor who is really a “business man” disguised as a “pastor”, and is using the church as a business for his own personal financial gain (Matthew 6:24, “…you can’t serve God and money…”). Please send me the facts to prove this, as well as, the name of the pastor and the church. It is our goal to thoroughly research and investigate the pastor. If we believe there is enough evidence to prove that the pastor has violated IRS laws, we will file a formal complaint with the IRS. Our job is only to gather the “public” facts regarding the pastor and the 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization (church or charity), and present those facts to the IRS to the best of our ability.
In addition, if there is evidence of criminal activity, then that information will be forwarded to the authorities. A pastor may be guilty of “theft by deception”, which is a felony, when the tithe is not used for its intended purpose in paying for church expenses, and instead finds its way into the pastor’s pocket. Currently, there are several pastors who are being investigated for repeatedly mortgaging their homes and church properties, thus causing the church to repeatedly pay the bank notes. Example: property is paid off, then the pastor remortgages the property for the full value, the pastor keeps the chunk of money he receives from the bank, and then uses the tithe to pay the monthly mortgage payments AGAIN; and then after the property is paid off in full AGAIN, the pastor then AGAIN mortgages the property for the full value of the property, then the pastor AGAIN keeps the chunk of money he receives from the bank, and then AGAIN uses the tithe to pay the bank note. And the cycle repeats itself, over and over again. Does this sound like good management of the tithe? The Moses Model pastor truly believes he is like “Moses” and that he won’t be held accountable for stealing from the church (at least not in this life time, aka: grace, look the other way, forgive with no ramifications). Shocking! In one case, a pastor was found to have remortgaged his personal residence and the church property for the full value of the properties over seven (7) times, a documented cycle that clearly exposes “inurement” (an IRS violation). Because the IRS allows for a monthly “parsonage stipend” to be paid from the tithe to the pastor for his housing, it is clear that the IRS did not intend for the pastor to actually “inure” from the good folks in the church. This is common practice amongst the Moses Model pastors because there is absolutely no accountability of how the tithe is used by the Moses Model pastors, mainly because Calvary Chapel boards have absolutely no authority over the Moses Model pastors. The Moses Model pastors own all the church properties, which are solely in the name of the pastor only (because he is the President of the church hierarchy and can’t be dethroned – even if absent from the church for years and residing in another state). The Moses Model pastor, if corrupt, believes he has the authority to use the tithe in any manner he wants because there is absolutely no accountability over his actions (no authoritative board).
Our immediate goal is to petition elected officials and the IRS to modify the IRS laws to eliminate the loop holes in how the church (a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) is governed and managed. Please petition your elected officials in your state to investigate the churches and charities to make sure that they are in compliance with the IRS laws. You can make a difference.
Please know that there are certain criterias that must be met in filing an IRS complaint or the IRS can reject the complaint just based on the fact that there is not enough substantial information to warrant an investigation. Once my complaint is filed, it becomes the responsibility of the IRS to further investigate (accessing bank records, property records, trust accounts, personal assets, business affiliations, inurement, active ‘authoritative’ board, hireling pastor, and so much more). Possible infractions for defrauding the IRS could include: revocation of the 501(c)(3) tax exempt status, reimbursement of past taxes, reimbursement of all funds fraudulently collected, criminal charges, barred from ever having another 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization again. There are more consequences/ramifications for defrauding the IRS, as well as, defrauding the good folks in the church.
It seems reasonable to expect that “pastors” not use the church as their private business, or for their own personal and family gain (aka: inurement – which is a clear violation of the IRS laws). Because of the blatant irresponsibility of ‘Moses Model’ pastors to not care for their own in their church, this has put a heavy burden on society to care for God’s people. This is not what God had in mind when he formulated the church ~ for His purpose. The church is “us”, not a pastor, not a building. When you tithe, consider whether the pastor is taking care of the church, or if the pastor is only caring for himself, his family, and a few intimate friends that know and benefit from the trade secrets of using the church as a business.
In addition, the IRS requires that all churches are to be governed by a Board, an authoritative Board having the authority and ability to hire and fire the pastors. It is against IRS laws for any church to be solely governed by a pastor or one man. This is the problem with the Calvary Chapel pastors. All Calvary Chapel pastors are known as ‘Moses Model’ pastors, a directive from Chuck Smith, who also directs Calvary Chapel Boards to be subservient to the pastor (which is a clear violation of the IRS laws).
