Why doesn't the church turn the building into a community shelter than the church could actually do as Jesus and help those who need it instead of those within the church.
It's wrong for believers to be in an airconditioned building once or twice a week while the homeless are left to the streets.
Many can preach about Jesus but only few can act like him.

Jesus had no car, or home and trusted his father in heaven to provide for him. How many pastors would give up there salary and home for a less fortunate person and not just preach about Jesus but actually live for and like him?
I like the "offering" thing. DId Jesus ever tell the sick and poor or even the rich "GIve me your offering so I can bless and heal you?"
No so the church should be ashamed of guilting and tricking people to support itself. If God isn't supplying for the church it should close it's doors. Besides the building isn't the church. The people are. You could have church outside or anywhere and use the "offering" for what it's meant for and that's the ones who are less fortunate than yourself.

How many pastors will publish and make public there funds and salary so the people can no if the one preaching is living as he's teaching?
Very few do.
It's nice to have a God to worship but does he really need stain glass windows, sound systems, everything a modern day church has?
Or would he rather the widow and fatherless have what they need?
People don't neeed to preach about jesus all they need to do is live like him.
When others see that someone is living truelly happy it's more likely to change others
But preaching about Jesus while living your own way is hypocracy

You got that right. Absolutely nothing about you is important. You are not nearly as well versed or intelligent as you think. Most of us get a good laugh reading your ridiculous ramblings.

God only likes Christains. All other religions are gonna end up in Hades eventually. I'm tired of pretending that I like foreigners, with foreign beliefs. I only want Christains in my neighborhood!

And God himself told you this? Those who judge will be the first to burn
