Does that exclude when the doctors says, "God Damn it." when he is served?

Gotta watch the priests though. From what I hear their pockets are full of candy but have the bottoms cut out...

why spend $2 mil on a new "house of God" when that $2 mil could do a lot for those in need? the maintenance budget of many churches could pull a lot of people out of poverty, send someone further on in school, buy medical care,

Oh you guys are so funny....and wrong.

I think you'll find, if you were to actually go any normal sized church, that most are not rolling in the money. And before you guys say "What do you know, you're a blind sheep" I am a pastors kids I grew up on "the deep pockets that pastors have". Come to find out.....They don't exsit in everyday american churches. If any one of you were to actually visit a regular church or go to a budget meeting you might actually know what you're talking about.

I think you'll also find that most churches have boards (literal ones, in the hallway or narthex) that update the congregation on the missionaries that they support. Most of those missionaries are solely supported by that one church. I haven't been to a church (and I've been to a couple hundred in my life) that didn't have a board like that. Multiple have food kitchens and allow groups like AA and the boy scouts to use thier buildings.


Like I said, I can tell you guys have limited experience in what a church budget actually is.


God was there first. I'm not getting in to evolution again.

I know there are modest preachers who live a meager existance. From my experience they are few and far between though, every time I look out my window I see a perfect example. I have no problem with christains what so ever, however I do have a problem with hypocrites. It just happens to be that 98% of christains are hypocrites.

Because of freewill. God is not making choices for you or controlling you.
He is very fond of all his kids (especially you steveo) He does not like to see any of them fail.

Well, from my experience they are very common. My dad's College buddies are all pastors....mostly because his college was seminary. They are all great guys and none of them live extravagantly. If you were to go to a majority of the small town churches I think you'll find they are struggling to pay the bills/meet the needs of the community.

Are there corrupt and messed up pastors in the world? Absolutely, but I think, from my more intimate experience, they are the few and far between. If you are in it to make money, and you know anything about churches and thier budgets, you won't become a pastor.

Also, We're all hypocrites. We strive to live an example of perfection in imperfect bodies. AND the squeaky wheel gets the most grease. You hear about corrupt pastors all the time but you don't hear about the millions of pastors/churches in our country that are helping the needy both locally and far away.

Because if they are Christian, and the actually live thier faith, they would show mercy to the surgeon.

They did, how do you think people knew what they looked like to draw pictures on cave walls.
Marco Polo in his own writings, discribed dinosaurs when he went to the east. The one he wrote about was a T-Rex.
There is pleanty of info about man and dinosaurs. You just need to search for it.
Just don't put evolution in your search. Try creation and you will find plenty.

Joe Rogan told my Christianity was a religion based on taking psychedelic mushrooms. Good to know it hasn't lost its roots.
