RE: Pope's orders to chief giver: Go find poor
..... It is not generally understood that Jesus operated an intentional community called "The Kingdom of God" separated from "the world", and according to ACTS 2 and ACTS 4 its members had pooled all of their property, with the management holding all of the money to be used for the benefit of all. Therefore as individuals members had no money and didn't need any. Outsiders therefore called the members "The Poor" (see Ebionites). When Jesus talked about "The Poor" he meant only the members of his special community, NOT outsiders who were short of money.
..... All popes are supposed to follow Jesus, and Saint Francis of Assisi got into trouble because he wanted to follow Jesus. Pope Francis is following Saint Francis of Assisi, and that will likely get him into trouble too.
..... By the way, any business needs enough money coming in to stay alive. Therefore expect churches to be nice to the rich, not to the poor who cannot afford to pay tithes/donations. And if it is true that sinners pay a lot more in the hope to bribe God to forgive them their sins, then churches have an incentive to teach members how to sin properly and often. Therefore any pope, being the CEO of a large business enterprise is expected to maximize the money intake, not the money given to the poor. Will pope Francis learn?

The one true religion, Jehovah's witnesses does not depend on your money or anyone's money to support or enhance them as a religion.

There are never any donations taken or are pledges as tithes made mandatory for the true Christian world wide congregation of Jehovah's true Christian witnesses.
2Corinthians 9:7

The fact is that Jehovah God is keeping His one true religion of pure worship, prospering in these last days, as a witness to show mankind that his named world wide united people can and do rely on Him for their support and growth. It is also the evidence that Jehovah God is backing Jesus Christ as our reigning King in heaven, the head of his one and only world wide united congregation, Jehovah's witnesses.
Acts 15:14

Getting in to this place of safety or ark before the great tribulation starts is the only way anyone will survive the Great Tribulation that is soon to start.
Everyone on the outside will be destroyed during Armageddon, the end of Satan's rulership over this ungodly world.
Revelation 7:14
