  • Tax Evasion? What does the Bible say about paying you taxes? it says "Render unto Caesar what is Caesars." Matthew 22:15-22😇 I love it when the apostates get caught. lol They always think the Bible doesn't apply to them.

  • People like Joel Osteen are a big reason why evangelical churches and televangelists are getting a bad reputation. Ecclesiastes 5:10 "He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity."

      They had bad reps since they began. I remember my parents telling me not to watch them. and this was in 1965.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      I too said in my answer, "evangelical churches" are getting a bad reputation. Since you say televangelists have had a bad rep from the beginning, now that your parents told you in 1965 - not precisely, your parents did not watch Jack Van Impe. He was an honest televangelist who preached the Bible like no other. Hal Lindsey is also honest. I understand how your parents feel though. One bad apple or in this case, a bunch of bad apples shouldn't spoil the very little good ones that remain.

      Thanks, Jenny and Hulk for opening my eyes with Joel Osteen
  • Sounds like a simple case of embezzlement by one of the "donation ushers" (i.e. "basket passers"), or one of the donation counters (the people who open and count donations after church service), which sort of thing has been discovered many, many times in many, many different churches. The odd thing is that the perpetrator was hiding the ill-gotten gains behind a toilet (probably concealing donation envelopes in pockets and then excusing oneself to use the bathroom), and that he or she did not retrieve it. Probably: died or imprisoned before they could retrieve it. The "loot" being checks and cash, and in envelopes, it seems clear that it was donations, either given during service or mailed, but probably given during service.

  • It seems the "non-profit" was bringing in far more than it was spending on charity doesn't it.
