Rich Churches

Harris (Guest Editorial by Brother Ritechus N. Dignation)

I'm fired up! Yep, I'm mad as hornets. I just heard about a church that's got money runnin' out their ears. They got money in the bank drawin' inurst. And it ain't even a big city church.

What do you think the Lord's gonna say when He comes back? "Well done thou good and saving church. I been runn'in a little short on cash lately. Thanks for savin' all this up for me."

If I remember the great commission right, it's all about savin' souls, not money. It's about teachin' His unsearchable riches, not hoarding up earthly riches. You know what the problem usually is? It starts when you get a bunch of backslidden Baptists running things, who have forgotten that the church's money is actually the Lord's money, not theirs personally. The Lord's money is to be used for the Lord's work, not saved for a rainy day.....or the tribulation.

These backsliders forgot that when they put their money in the plate, it ceased being theirs (actually, it was already God's before they even put it in the plate). They try to reclaim ownership and then begin pinching pennies until Lincoln starts to holler.

I bet if you checked the bank statements of just 25 country churches, you'd find that all together they've got from one half to a million dollars stockpiled in bank accounts. Now I can understand keeping' some money on hand in case one of the refrigerated air conditioning machines breaks. But tarnation, you don't need a king's ransom for that. How much cold air do you want?

I'm fired up, because with all that money, there's a lot more Bibles could be bought, a lot more Christian education done, a heap more folks helped in the name of Jesus, and more missionaries supported. They just won't get up off it.

Same thing could be said with some associations. Quit sittin' on the Lord's money! You're buryin' it like that guy buried the talents and he wasn't too happy when his lord returned.
