this nigga on to something
The LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Don’t quote scripture to critique the church if you don’t know that you’re quoting it wrong to begin with.
Yeah well the church sure seems to love money but don’t seem never do anything to benefit the community with it, but i see them Pastors rolling around with brand new Bentley.
When these discussion take place, people bring up mega churches as though they are the only churches in the world.
There are literally hundreds if not thousands of broke churches with small/aging congregations where the pastor is working one if not two jobs.
Yes there are mega churches where pastors are using their money to bankroll life but that is not the norm. Like how many little churches do you pass just getting to and from work or across town?
If you don’t like church say you don’t like it.
But don’t use mega churches as your example for why.
It happens with small churches too. There are a ton of “poor” churches with pastors that are living pretty comfortably
One if the main reason I stopped going. This local church has people pledging thousands of dollars every month for all these plans of building a bigger better church….10 years later ain’t shit happened, but all 3 pastors got brand new Lexus.
I remember going to a church once and they said they need 10K in donations for a projector. You could buy 3 pretty damn good projectors for less than 10K.
