Aggregate and Sole Corporations
"A corporation sole is a legal entity consisting of a single ("sole") incorporated office, occupied by a single ("sole") person. A corporation sole is one of two types of corporation, the other being a corporation aggregate."
Most corporations sole are church related but not all. Some political offices of the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada etc. are also corporations sole. A corporation consists as an aggregate of two or more persons which may be run by a board of directors and it may have owners or stockholders. A corporation sole does not have these characteristics.
The term corporation sole originated as a means for orderly transfer of ecclesiastical property from one office holder to the next successor with identical powers. This also protected the property from being claimed at that time by what was being called the vicar of the church.
Jesus was the highest son of David and the rightful king of Judea which was the remnant of the kingdom of David past down from generation to generation. He was also the high priest according to the order of Melchisidec. In a sense he was a corporation sole as king of a nation.
He claimed all spiritual and civil power <exousia> of that government.
He had predicted he would take the kingdom from those who claimed it at that time and give it to another.
Did Jesus pass down his kingdom to a sole individual?
He said he would appoint the kingdom to a little flock. A little flock is not a sole individual.
Then he did exactly that giving specific instructions about being a Benefactor of the people without exercising authority over them but serving Him as their King, the Christ by serving the people. This is what has been called the Church or the Body of Christ.
The First Sole
If a corporation is two or more people gathered together as if they were one person for a particular purpose under a preexisting authority. The first corporation was Adam and Eve.
There are many types but they can at least be divided into corporations aggregate and corporations sole.
Adam and Eve and their children and their children's children and any domestic servants and other members of their household could be called a corporation aggregate with Adam as the head in accompaniment with his Wife as one person. All would be under the head of the Family of Adam and his Wife.
When Adam and Eve died their corporation would end if they had no heirs to take the position of head of the Family. When their son Seth received his inheritance he became part of the first corporation sole. He was a corporation sole with the aggregate of people in a lineal succession rather than an aggregate in one moment in time. Kings form such aggregates of succession.
Fathers of fathers
In God's kingdom each elder Father within a Family is to be the corporate head of the Family under God the Father. Cain went out of the presence of God the Father and he began a family of men that was secondary to that original estate. It was similar but lacking certain characteristics of the Father who was in Heaven. Cain created a city or civil state where the head of that state took on the role of the Father of the members of that state, the Parentes Loci.
From that position of Patronus, Our Father, he was able to demand the patrimonial rights of a Father. He demanded honor and tribute and of course parens patriea, Obey the Father. All corporate States are dependent in some degree on the law of the Father in one form or another. We who seek the kingdom would not be wise to use the terms “corporation” or “corporation sole” to describe this most ancient of relationships because those are terms used by the civil or city states of Cain which went out of the presence of the LORD and which are corporation but are under a different preexisting authority which is not that of the Original Father. The only corporation sole that one should belong to is called a Family and Specifically the Family of Adam. Only the Pater Familias is sui juris within the Family of God or Adam. This position within the Family of Man gives some protection and coverture within that Family for its domestic members.
The world also uses the word family which is really a creation within the corporation of the State. It is created by permission of the State amongst the children of the corporate state, e.g. Birth registration, application for benefits and marriage licenses, etc..
It is very important to make a particular effort to draw a distinctive line between the appearance of a legal family of the state and the Holy Families of God the Father and His Kingdom which is at hand. If you do not the state may assume a jurisdiction as if it was the originating authority of the domestic relationship called Husband and Wife.
The Corpus of Christ
Since God's ministers of the kingdom, the called out, are to deliver everyman to his Family and to his possessions they need to assume a particular status or standing in order to bear witness to the authenticity of the Family of Man. They must become a part of the corporation appointed by Christ. Again we should not use the word corporation but words like the Church or the Corpus or Body of Christ or in the case of corporation soles we must like the Family talk of Orders of the Church.
- Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the Body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, [even] to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. Ro 7:4
Those individuals who become members of that whole body, called the Church, to serve Christ's purposes, propagate his doctrines must comply with his commands which are prescribed and directed by Christ. Within Orders they are brothers of adoptive Families with a mission and purpose directed by Christ. They were called bondservants. They literally had no personal standing but were servants of Christ in one accord as the Levites were servants of God belonging to Him and not freemen.
- And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine; Nu 3:12
Coming to Terms
The use of the term Corporation soles to establish ministries is very dangerous and do not really match up with the ministries appointed by Christ. Most of what I have seen produced over the last decade often contains elements of fraud and will incur the wrath of the modern corporate States in which they are formed.
People often think they can just extricate themselves from civil bondage by clever schemes or making claims of inalienable rights but the Bible is clear that that people will become Merchandise entangled again in the elements of the world oppressed in the yoke of bondage, with their children literally cursed as a surety for debt.
There are two ways a society may go. In one each man and his family owns the right to that which is properly theirs and that property right passes from generation to generation or to the closest family member or named heirs. In the other some form of state holds the true title of what would have belong to the natural individual. This second title to property, including incorporeal hereditaments, is only a legal title, held by persons, with the true title bound by the equitable right of the state. In the latter there are many rulers one over another in the former there are no kings. Once a society enters into this latter contractual relationship most schemes attempted to severe these bands which connect authority and bar liberty fall short.
For centuries the State, in the form of kings and despots or indirect democracies, with their Congress, Parliament, Knesset or Politburo have taken a dim view of anyone who decides to alienate the assets of their corporate government structure, or what they might call "the public trust" simply by creating their own corporation, either sole or aggregate, ecclesiastical or temporal, nor using any form of trust, either private or collective.
This is what many have tried to do with numerous patriot schemes or devised legal entities created in a variety of ways to set themselves free and get their stuff back. They use clever arguments that advocate they still have there inalienable rights despite their receipt of benefit, the actions of their parents, the entanglements with the elements of the world.
None of these plans and schemes actually work, falling short. In fact, they lead to death and destruction if we are willing to objectively look at all things which should be considered. This is a “dead” issue well established with only one viable alternative which is to seek the Kingdom of Heaven at hand and the righteousness of God.
The issue is dead because the hand they are playing is dead and has been since the Statute of Uses and the Statute of Mortmain.
MORTMAIN is also defined as:
- "An unlawful alienation of lands, or tenements to any corporation, sole or aggregate, ecclesiastical or temporal. These purchases having been chiefly made by religious houses, in consequence of which lands became perpetually inherent in one dead hand, this has occasioned the general appellation of mortmain to be applied to such alienations."
- "Mortmain is also employed to designate all prohibitory laws, which limit, restrain, or annul gifts, grants, or devises of lands and other corporeal hereditaments to charitable uses."
According to the Catholic Encyclopedia the word Mortmain is from the French morte meyn meaning a dead-hand or "such a state of possession of land as makes it inalienable" It is "the possession of land or tenements by any corporation" or "where the use came ad manum mortuam, which was when it came to some corporation"
There is only one way of righteousness and it is The Way of Christ which will bless society and draw us near true freedom under God. Do not forsake the gathering together. Do not neglect the weightier matters. Provide a daily ministration in faith, hope and charity through the perfect law of liberty or you will find yourself without God's ear.
If you want to be forgiven you must forgive others.
If you want to be blessed you must bless others.
If you want to be saved you must seek to save others.
We need to come to terms with the truth that the people of the world are again entangled in the yoke of bondage and to be saved from that we must humble ourselves to the point of forgiving and giving out of love of one another.
Trusts, Faith and Aliances and Allegiance
Once any part of the Body of Christ is incorporated under any other incorporation authority other than by Christ then its incorporation as the Body of Christ is as if it never happened. As an example I offer 805 ILCS 110/44:
- Sec. 44. "Any congregation, church or society, heretofore incorporated under the provisions of any law for the incorporation of religious societies, may become incorporated under the provisions of this act, relative to religious societies, in the same manner as if it had not previously been incorporated..."
But also they must move according to the Spirit of Christ. All the information we share on the structure of the Church means nothing without the Spirit of Christ dwelling in the hearts and minds of its ministers and the people they serve.
- John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life.
The elements of the world that bind the people and the Church are merely symptoms of straying from The Way of Christ.
The people are free to choose, to give and forgive, to bless in hopes of being blessed. They may gather together to attend to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors, the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.
The Way of Christ was not like the way of the world, nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on benefactors who exercise authority. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ.
The Christian conflict of the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for benefits but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens.
"Follow me!" —Jesus the Christ.
- One of the most important things to do is to become involved in a network of Charitable Practices. Everyone should want to join a Living Network of Love and Charity.
- If you think you have a calling to be a Minister of God or you might want to dedicate your life to Christ as an Ordained Minister of His Holy Church then contact us to start the process of discipleship and become the benefactors who exercise only love, NOT authority.
Although the precepts of a corporation are found in the kingdom and the Church those terms are very dangerous to be used to describe such relationships under God. It is far better to use terms and means that express your desire to be under God the Father in his kingdom. Certification of Birth should be done by the Church or through your local congregation. This certification is to establish that you are a child “of” your Natural Parents and not a child “of” the world of the state in which you live. Also, marriage licenses and certificates should be testimonies of the same truth, you belong to your family within the Family of God. And finally the benefits you receive should come through faith, hope and charity and not the result of forced contributions.
