Should all churches be tax exempt?

Despite the name of this blog,
I am by no means a bible scholar or theologian.

Is Mormonism is a form Christianity and a valid religion? Some would say that all religions are cults.
Most evangelicals do not acknowledge the Church of  Latter Day Saints, as they do Judaism or other forms of Christianity.
Mormonism seems to me a relatively new schism designed to obscure the finances of a secret society.
(You may argue they all are)
It has little to do with scripture and the teachings of  Jesus.  The huge churches IMO are an offense to God. Churches should be humble; acquiring  real estate and wealth is  antithetical to Jesus's teachings.

The church of LDS holdings are incalculable. It's disgusting.
  Churches in our country are tax exempt, but I don't think the church of LDS deserves that exemption. Most churches don't, they are businesses, and should be taxed as such.

  Jesus would certainly rebuke todays churches:

Luke 18:23 (N.I.V.)

"Sell everything you have and
give to the poor, and you
will have treasure in
heaven. Then come, follow
me."

I believe Jesus would like churches to have more garage sales and less bake sales.

I look forward to your comments.

Is this a church or a bank?

Back in the saddle again

Watch "Aerosmith Back In The Saddle Lyrics" on YouTube

I'M BACK!!!!

I have not posted since Nov '11. The madness of homelessness and lack of daily internet access, made posting quite difficult and frankly, not a priority.

Then I got an android.
I debated whether or not I should acquire a laptop, but being essentially homeless, decided a smartphone could do the job and was less likely to be stolen.

I was using blogger and trying to maintain the site, but was spending my net time watching politics and tweeting. Due to health concerns I decided to give the politics a rest until sometime closer to the election.
The time is now

If this is your first time here: Welcome! Poke around the video links and give me feed back.
(Moderated)

It will take time to get burningbush
back to it's former glory especially trying to do it all via 'Droid.

Your patience is appreciated.

stay tuned.
