    I would say this guy has an agenda and he has really stretched some legal principles to support said agenda.

    I agree with his point about staying out of debt but alas that is not always possible.

    As for his concept of the "New Testament Church" I guess he's right, they did not incorporate. But I don't recall reading anything in the Bible about the N.T. churches having electric lights and Power Point projectors either.

    Article sounds like fear instead of faith.

    I think this is probably an American (U.S.) thing. I have never come across a church in this country which is "incorporated", though of course there may be some - unlike our great God, I am not omniscient! :)
