    Creflo Dollar left a message on my answering machine just last week, talking about me coming to service at Madison Square Garden.

    …..who is surprised here?? Pulpit Pimps…..I’m surprise they are not all marching around with Joe Jackson! These guys are going to get what is coming to them for teach lies and pagan doctrine…read The Two Babylons..you will be shocked at what is going on in the church.

    I know that’s right wedidn’t need a study for this crap..But I will say this is BS, because my pastor had a real job, hell he was a teacher at my high school…I didn’t grow up in a small town either, so he had to work… I don’t get it do people think that the more you give these men the more you will have a chance to get into the gates. There is no damn way i am giving more than I am suppose to and their is no way you should be getting paid this kindof money for what you called your calling…That’s sad!

    There is nothing wrong with tithing and giving generously to the church. As a matter of fact, it is very scriptural to do so. I think that church giving gets such a bad rap because too many churches are irresponsible with the donations. For example, a church cannot keep taking up a building fund for twenty years, and no one ever sees a brick get laid. I am a tither, and my church has fresh paint, nice buildings, several community outreach programs and has even helped me financially in the past when I needed it. A church should be truly transparent with its finances because that’s the only way people will ever trust them with the money that is donated.

    i think its only fair and logical for ALL people to scrutinize contributions to an endless “roof fund” that every damn church seems to have. its as old as time.

    You need to stop giving so much if your minister is living better than you and all he doing is ‘minister-ing’ with no outside job.

    In the religious group I grew up in, the minister worked TWO jobs to feed his family, just like my own parents.

    @Des

    Well said. I don’t want to see your pics on TMZ hugged up with Judge Mathis and Michael Jordan at a celebrity golf tournament…

    I am not surprised. When I moved to Atl in 2000 I could not believe the stories I heard about these mega churches. It’s like a cult. These stupid women will pay their tithes before their gas bill.

    Every church I visited had a 70% female congregation. You could tell that most of them were single. These women worship preachers like husbands. That 30% male population was half sissies & the other half were old men trying to get right before their time was up.

    Why don’t straight, young black men go to church. Michael Baisden said it best. GAME RECOGNIZE GAME

  • Aunt Viv

    I have a problem with megachurches in general. I’m sure many of them are doing good work, but to me, the bad apples have spoiled the whole bunch.

    I AM SO GLAD THAT LIGHT IS FINALLY BEING SHED ON THIS ISSUE-SO MANY CHURCHES MORE SPECIFICALLY THEIR PASTOR’S WHO SAY THEY ARE WORKING FOR THE LORD ARE DRIVING AROUND IN EXPENSIVE CARS AND LIVING IN BIG BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND COURTESY OF MONEY GIVEN TO THE CHURCH IN THE COLLECTION PLATE ON SUNDAYS

    IT’S TIME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY

  • Somer

    I predict 1000 comments today cause blogs pertaining to religion will always set it off………

  • Lady J

    This is so unfortuanate…very common in the Black church…my only issue with the 420 billion dollar tax free money is that the church only shares with very few indivuals…ie. the pastor, his kids, wife and oh some of the decons…this is pitiful…with that kind of money…every church member should be debt free, houses/cars paid off with the current + next generation….

  • intensemocha

    BOY THEY GO SO HARD-IT USE TO BE GIVE WHAT YOU HAVE NOW THEY HAVE THE AUDACITY TO SET A CERTAIN AMOUNT THEY WANT EVERYONE TO GIVE DESPITE THEIR OWN FINANCIAL CIRCUMSTANCES

    I STRUGGLE WITH THIS PRACTICE-I GIVE WHAT I CAN AND I DO MAKE A SACRIFICE BUT GOD GAVE ME FIVE SENSES AND I AM GOING TO USE THEM-I BE DAMN IF I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU MY UTILITIES BILL OR FOOD MONEY AND BE LOOKING LIKE DOPEY DO WHEN I CAN’T EAT AND THE LIGHTS AREN’T ON
