The guy who paid for my childhood church's $10,000 projector ended up banging the pastor's wife so I believe you

I think most of us who grew up partying pretty hard early on hung out with at least one of the pastors kids.

As a former Christian, I can confirm church drama is next level

I hope they take full advantage of those tax incentives.

Someone out there is spending collected tith money Only Fans

Probably pretty common. Tithing pays the church's salaries right? Like that's how priests live right

If it spends, it spends!

Statistically no, there are only about 1800 mega churches in the US, out of 380,000 total Christian churches. This represents less than 1% of all Christian establishments.

and most of those 380,000 churches serve tiny parishes, while the mega churches... well, it's in the name, isn't it?

The Catholic Church is the largest private land owner in the world.

Doesnt the mormon church have one of the largest wealth accumulations in the world? Its something like high 100's of billions.

I think I know of several entities that have billions on their balance sheets. Have you ever heard of Cede & Co.? They have trillions and basically own America. When you really get down to it how can anyone own anything if they can't carry most of their possessions with them and how even their bodies go though changes as cells are replaced at least once every 7 years?

The Catholic Church has problems with protecting child abusers, but financially they're actually pretty solid. Bureaucracy prevents most of the shutty/personal spending you see from nondenominational churches. As far as landowning goes, it's like if you attached a community center and massive parking lot to every mcdonalds in the world. It's not that crazy that they have the most land, it's just a very organized entity that claims it all.

What would anyone else do if they had more money than God? I can't say I blame the entity because if I did I'd suffer eternal hell fire that burns but never consumes.

My point is that the overwhelming majority of churches do not do this.

So you've audited them all?

Nope. But I don't hold people who want you to pay your way into heaven in high regard

by Independent_Bid 4 weeks ago

Don't think most churches make any claim of tithing to have any benefits like that. The tithe is meant to simply be how the church keeps going. It is funds to continue their operations, pure and simple.

by StructureSharp2924 4 weeks ago

Tithing won't get you into heaven. It's purpose is to help keep the church in operation for the benefit of future generations. Most denominations don't include any obligation to tithe.

Then you don't have a factual point.

It isn't just the mega churches.

by jessietorphy 4 weeks ago

Irrelevant. You don't need to have a.megachurch to pay the pastor way more than they need. Half of them are salesmen for a reason

You haven't met a lot of Lutheran pastors, have you?

Thank God for that! Amen!

by Anonymous 4 weeks ago

that's all the church really cares about, after all.

by Anonymous 4 weeks ago

Can someone explain tithing to someone unfamiliar with religious culture?

by Anonymous 4 weeks ago

Tithing is giving God (the church) 10% of the money you earn.

Ah. Ok thanks
