- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, News

We have found that since 1980, that Black Churches have collected more than $400 billion dollars from their congregations. There has been an active approach taken to investigate where the funds are spent and why there is a lack of church sponsored activity in the community. More…

    I recommend you a nice milionaire dating site __Rich Flirts.c o m__. Whenever I chat with my friends on this site, I feel really relaxed and happy. They are easygoing and honest. I enjoy staying on the site. Hope you can find more nice rich friends there. Good luck to you.

    Oh my…

    Only thing that has always been suspect to me are the constant “building funds”…
    yep that would be a problem

  • getagrip

    They NEED to be investigated! It’s a disgrace to drive around in luxury cars and live in mansions when more than half of the people these “churches” take money from are low-income church members.

  • BE

    The church is meant to be taken care of by its members. All faiths collect money not just black churches: catholics, jewish, jehovah witness, scientology

  • the_one

    What is new, we give to our churches but we never question what they do with the money. How many building funds do we need or reverands in expensive cars while the community their mega church is in suffers, that is our fault.

    Yeah I give my title and offering but I will also do for my fellow man because at the end of the day its me standing before God answering for what I did and I am not going to let soapbox reverend so and so keep me from the gates of eternity.

    I will say this the gov’t is trying to take the money back, because God forbid if the money we have is not scrutinize more carefully to continue to control us.

    Its a double edge sword, you want to protect churches but you know many of them are doing our communities wrong.

    @ Glok…I understand ur frustration. U have to go to church and ignore the circus that sometimes maybe around u…I know its hard to do. Im having that issue now. I know I love the lord and Im praying a lot more I just cant get with the hypocritical holy rollers…
    My man and I went to this church and the way they did the offering was too much…started that mess off like “who has $100.00 to give/please come down” then they went to $75 to $50 and down…GTFOH
    The pastor and First Lady were bling bling all up in the place

    SMOOVEE!
    IF YOU LOVE CREATOR SISTA, KNOW THAT HE DONT DWELL IN PLACES MADE OF WOOD AND STONE…HE DWELLS IN YOU …AND THATZ WHAT THE CHURCH IS A BIZNESS AND NOT A PLACE TO LEARN OF THE CREATOR…I SEEN AN ATM IN A CHURCH BEFORE …GO FIGURE!

  • Rrrrroe Ski Love-

    Ebony featured Creflo Dollars house in their magazine. It was sinful just to look at it. If Jesus said to give up your worldly possesions and follow him. Why in the hell are these pastors living and acting like the world. I have zero respect for these dudes and I am well equiped biblically to challenge their lifestyle, therfore they avoid me like the plague. I have learned the truth, but unfortunatley I had to go though the ringer (church) a few times to finally get it. I went to church my whole life from the time I was a little kid. When I thought that I had heard enough, I asked God for discernment so I could know the truth. He provided me with the real truth and he also gave me peace and understanding.

    @ PRPPLE…Ur right. church is where u make it.

    @ Glok…an ATM in the church???
    Oh lawd!

  • Slick Like Baby Hair

    @ Glok:

    Amen, brutha! Took years to learn the truth about that and undertand the God/Christ dwells within; not in wood & stone. My daughter researched and discovered the truth about organized religion IN THE 6TH GRADE!!! Wake up people. (BTW-she also discovered, thru research, that the MUSLIM faith is the basis for ALL faiths that followed and branched off to secular religion…interesting.)

  • Kaviani

    Most churches/organized religions are corrupt as hell. Especially the big ones. They already get tax exemptions, but still want more, more, MORE. I have no sympathy.

  • Glok9n: Lev 20:13!!

    SLICK LIKE BABY HAIR
    YOU RIGHT THE FIRST RELIGION IS MUSLIM…CHRISTIANITY IS FAKE TOO THE DEVIL MADE UP THESE RELIGIONS..PPL WAKE UP THE CREATOR MADE COMMANDMENTS LAWS AND STATUTES,..NOT RELIGION!

  • Glok9n: Lev 20:13!!

    SMOOVEE!
    AN ATM! NOW IF YOU AINT GOT NO MONEY OR NO CHANGE …THEY GONNA MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO TITHE, ITS ALL SMOKE AN MIRRORS!

  • http://www.myspace.com/mzpayne_11 Smoovee Sayz (Yes, Chris Tucker was there!!)

    Damn I didnt know the MUSLIM faith was the base to all the rest…

    Also speaking in tongues/and shouting…
    can anyone explain how does one start to do those or when

  • Ok

    someone told me that at her church, there was a pastor who wanted a bently for his birthday and wife and deacons were asking all the members to chip in to purchase this car! She said she didnt because she didnt have a car herself…. needless to say, she was kicked out the church and he got his bently!! SMH….. this system is going to end soon… SMH

  • Glok9n: Lev 20:13!!

    PURP!
    YES ,WE HAD TO BEEN THERE AND EXPERIENCE TO TALK LIKE THIS RIGHT? ,…BUT THAT LIGHT HIT ME WHEN I HEARD LIES BEING TOLD IN CHURCH, HA, THE PASTOR AND HIS MANY UNHOLY TRAMPS IN THE FRONT ROW!

  • Brooklyn Dub

    I am no fan of organized religion in any fashion but you can’t be serious when you say Islam was the first religion? In fact, anyone who makes that statement understands nothing of human history regarding religion (Muhammad was born almost 600 years after Christ).

    Judaism, Christianity, and Islam came in that order and are cousins of each other because they were born of the same monotheistic idealogy (belief in one god) and book (Old Testament).

    Now regarding the black church, it has its function politically, and socially for the black community, but that is about it. Those expecting the individuals who talk most about God to act most like Christ, will consistently be disappointed.

  • Ok

    @ smoovee- my understanding from the way I was brought up was that speaking in tounges was something used only in bible times as ways from GOD to prophesy… there are only three acounts in the entire bible of anyone ever speaking in tounges. It was almost like a miracle. However, in 1 corinthians paul wrote that speaking in tounges was to cease. Which to me, would mean it would happen anymore.

  • Molly P.

    Another question: How much has the Catholic church collected fom its congregation?

    Oh, nobody bothered to investigate them.

  • Ok

    @ glok9n- that is what I believe when I hear of people speaking in tounges now…. its demons, not God holy spirit.

  • BOSSIP PROMOTES SELF-HATE AMONG BLACKS!!!

    PEOPLE ON THIS SITE SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD.

    THERE IS A SUCH THING AS HEAVEN AND HELL. THERE WILL A BE A RAPTURE, GOD WILL COME BACK…KEEP THAT IN MIND.

  • Glok9n: Lev 20:13!!

    YOU PPL HAVE TO FIRST KNOW WHAT GODS YOU SERVE CAUSE ITS THOUSANDS OF THEM ..AND THESE PASTORS FEED OFF THAT FALSE GODLY ENERGY,AND THE MOST HIGH CREATED THE EARTH IN 7 DAYS ,..HE BLESSED THE SEVENTH A DAY OF REST, SATURDAY..NOT SUNDAY ,..SEE THESE PASTORS KNOW THAT THEY HAVE YOU SERVING SATAN ON SUNDAY THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK”SUNWORSHIP” SUN-DAY…LOOK AT YOUR CALENDARS!

  • L
