    I don't think the purpose of tithing is for community works. It would be nice but isn't the idea supposed to be giving the money up to heaven or something along those lines? The poor gets alms but the church doesn't solicit that. The church doesn't have to pay taxes and has no accountability for funds legally or morally. Checkmate to the church.

    I thought it was basically for the upkeep of the church. You tithing to keep the doors open.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong

    It's not about crooked preachers and etc....it's about a substantial amount of wealth directly leaving our community...without at least an exchange of goods....
    As I look back over a misspent life, I find myself more and more convinced that I had more fun posting on the IC than in any other enterprise. It is really the life of kings.

    Thats not true. The exchange is tithes for the preacher delivering the word from the good book and the choir putting on a show.

    Nigga the pastor can't ride around in a $80k car if the church paying members bills.

    Thy Lord and Savior White Jesus Christ will take care of my bills while my tithes every week will take care of the pastor so he can live a life of luxury for saving members souls.

    That's how this works!!!!!

    i believe the number is lower than that

    Although Multiple plates passed around multiple services....

    Think about some of these mega churches in atl and ca

    But not 14ms, maybe 4 mill a Sunday, however the funds could definitely be allocated in a better way....

    But do we know how the funds are being allocated to even claim they can be used better?

    I go to a small church. My pastor preaches on Sunday, and works a manufacturing job M-F’s, so he’s not “balling” like many on the outside would believe. I also pay tithes knowing some of it is going to the pastor & his wife. That’s fine, as I feel he deserves that but I also see my tithes being used to help out my community.

    It’s the mega churches that make up the majority of that supposed money, and what they do with it; well we know it ain’t all good. I can’t even front, as I see those pastors in mansions, jets, etc.

    Ive known two preachers like that and they live what the preach, so they've always gotten my respect. I dont recognize or think well of their religion, but they some standup dudes with it.

    Trips me out how they just average and others be balling with it. I never cared to look into it, but i guess its all about how much you hustle it. Like other lanes of life.

    People don't eat or get clothes from a church? They coulda used tithe money to procure such items.

    Niggaz just believing what this nigga says all Willy Nilly

    Any body that talks fast is a crook, same way as genuinely intelligent people write poorly because their minds are so active.

    They speak clearly, calmly, and measure...as they can’t help but think very much about how to precisely get their point across to an audience so it’s not wasted time.

    Niggaz that speak quickly. think too fluidly to give a fuck about if the audience gets what they are saying. So In actuality, their speaking just to speak. Which is a waste of brain function and purpose.

    Something genuinely smart people hate to do that. Listen to Malcom X, Obama, MLK, Neil D. Tyson, Dick Gregory, Paul Mooney, speak.

    there are crooked lawyers in this world whose sole job is to fuck people over

    they make thousands and thousands of dollars from doing this

    why is there no outrage for them?


    my point is, there are shady folks in all occupations. I hold you responsible and accountable for your own relationship with your higher power.

    Come on nigga this some bullshit.

    Lawyers been known forever to be fucked up people. That is the biggest complaint about them.

    I think the issues with the church and preachers seems worst because what they are supposed to be representing.

    God is supposed to be right and pure. Then you have crooked preachers preying on people based on their faith to that religion and God and it just seems worse than any other profession so they get the most scrutiny.
