Isn't Cornerstone just the best church in the whole world. The pastors give everyone hope and help everyone they can and they are saving so many children! I Love that church!

Wow--Do they do it for free, or do you have to do that tithing thing?

PS...Would they share their financial records? I'd like to know the price of salvation.

Looks to me like the people high up at that place live extremely well. I would love to work so little and have so much. I think I will just give to my own offering plate thank you.

If you believe in the bible, the law of the tenth would seem to apply.

Huh? Its a question of where that tenth is going. Didn't Jesus live a life of poverty in terms of possessions, but an existence fulfilled with spiritual richness.

Wow, I hope you didn't drink the Kool-Aide.(note: young people probably won't understand this remark.)

If you believe the bible, you are required to pay the law of the tenth. Where it's going is not your responsibility.

These things are only negotiable if you are not a believer. If you are a believer, Gods commands are not mere suggestions.

There are a lot of non believers period. In fact its the 3rd largest group behind catholics and baptists. But that will soon change as well.

Why do you believe in god?

I was brought up in church by my grandparents and my parents.
We believe in life after death, when setting at a funeral with a loveone laying in the coffin, it comforts you to know one day you will be able to be with that person again.
Its a choice someone has to make, you believe or you dont.
Im not a door knocker, if you want to go to church thats great, if you dont thats your choice.
You are saying the non believers group is growing, could you tell me why this is.
I know the world is changing, being over 50 when I was a kid all the stores where closed on sundays for church, now all the stores are open, if your parents were cathoices so was you , if your parents was baptist so was you.
Believers and non believers should still be friends and be able to work and play together, its a choice.

Indeed, atheism is on the rise worldwide, however, it's still not as large and prevelant as you make it sound.

It appears that atheism, agnosticism, and no religion register at 15% worldwide. Still behind Christianity and Islam. Also, that 15% includes agnostics and people who identify no religion, so atheism is actually smaller than that.

Again, nobody will argue that it isn't on the rise, however, atheism is still a relatively small group worldwide.

Dear where,

Where does it say in the bible you get to say what the church does with the tithes? Exodus 20 commands one tenth to be paid. There is no question in Spanish, because the words are exactly that.

My son goes to cornerstone, and they support many ministries. Food for the poor, daycare, youth programs,... I don't feel the need to judge them, and I'm grateful for what they do for my son. He has felt a conversion experience and wants to do good. If I complained about that, I would be silly.

I honor all the Churches that are trying to do unselfish goodness. They each have to personally wrestle with being honorable with the tithes.

They should have to wrestle with the IRS. Tax exemption is granted for a purpose. The financial records of churches should be public information-that includes how much the five wage earners are drawing-off church funds either in the form of salaries or in-kind benefits.

Many other tax exempt organizations are required to report this information and make it available in the public domain. Why not churches?

That should have read *highest* wage earners...not five.
