Here’s what’s plaguing my mind as of current:
There are an estimated 350,000 churches in the United States.
In 2010 the top Protestant churches made approximately 65 million dollars and paid 0% in taxes.
The yearly cost of tax exemptions for churches in America is $71,000,000,000.
There are anywhere from 2.3 to 3.5 million homeless people in America.
Jesus said: Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. (Matthew 25:40-45)
Does anyone else see the problem here?
