    That is pretty Bad. He Should keep his 'tithe' and give it to a homeless shelter / the people who Live in them. And church leaders who make comments like That should be ashamed of themselves.

      He needs the money to keep teenagers "entertained" I notice. We had better throw in the odd God word here and there, but otherwise we can have a jolly old time on Sunday mornings, can't we?

      No wonder biblical illiteracy is rife.

            Some of us aren't aware of that -- but it's Still pretty sad that anyone would come up with that. A pastor who's trying to find ways to entertain kids / teens in church. Our church is having VBS this week. It was being shared that the classes for the little kids, isn't just free babysitting. They are being taught Bible through fun and games -- but to be assured that God's Word is being taught to them , too.

            So -- pastors Need to get back on the ball and teach Everyone Bible. And I'll even use that scary word 'doctrine'. ;) :cool: :D

                I think anyone making $125 million a year should keep just a tithe for himself and give the rest to God.
