One of the megachurches here is in foreclosure. While not paying their $100k/mo mortgage, they continued to withdraw the expenses above, included in their nearly $4 million/yr salary for the "leadership compensation", 3 of the 4 million going to the husband and wife pastor team.
This was all financed by direct tithing, faith-based businesses (the same type that are demanding birth control exemptions for being faith-based), and "charitable" donations.
Which part of this was charity? Where is the faith-based aspect? What portion of this operation is doing a higher work that trancends the need to be regulated or taxed? How many congregations that people will now stand up screaming "but that's not MY church/denomination/pastor" and "that's not where MY donations go" do the same thing, just on a smaller scale, so it's not as noticeable?
(and fyi, if that's not YOUR church or YOUR denomination or YOUR whatever, who cares, and why do you feel the need to share that?)Answer Question
People like them will burn the hottest & brightest in Hell! People like that make me sick!
