  • Is it selling anything. Think of "The Whore of Babalyon".Babalyon is the church. I hope I am making sense. I ask myself these kinds of questions all the time. Church is not like it used to be!

  • My sister asked this on Facebook and I think it is a valid question.  It is my observation that sometimes churches go from serving God to serving money.  The prostitute connection is figurative.


    Prostitute - a person who willingly uses his or her talent or ability in a base and unworthy way, usually for money.
