  • Money is not the root of all evil it is the LOVE of money that is the root of all evil. This means the person has made money a god in place of the Lord God of the universe. Not all churches ask for money. those churches make it a voluntary choice and never pass a collection plate.

      I used to attend a church that never passed the plate for an offering. It had a box by the door going out of the sanctuary into the lobby. If you desired to give an offering it was between you and the Lord God. The church never had problems with no funds and has grown steadily.
  • Money is not the root of all evil. The love of it is. And my Church doesn't ask for money or pass a plate. They teach the blessings of tithing and people voluntarily do so discretely.

Jehovah does not disapprove of wealth as long as you put HIM first... (1 Timothy 6:10) For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains. (Hebrews 13:5) Let your way of life be free of the love of money, while you are content with the present things. For he has said:
  • That's simply because money greases the wheels of all evil operations from: corrupt churches, terrorist groups and violent dictatorships.
  • Jets,homes and Cadillacs.
  • Evil con men run churches and tell lies to take money from people. They spend it on fancy clothing, cars, jewelry and even planes in extreme cases.
