The people out there begging the most for the dollars are normally the scammers. The churches that are truly doing the Lord’s work, including the mega churces not scene or heard from, are not normally the ones anybody hears about.

The video strikes me as a bit self-righteous and hypocrticial since they are basically promoting taking from one organization to give to another based on gross generalizations.(Notice I’m trying to ignore the obvious attack on the church.)

All this said, at the end of the day I think this does make a good point. We are responsible for the resources God gives us. Just because the building has a cross on it, don’t assume they deserve the dollars. Do your homework and find out what they are doing with the money. Yes, the staff needs housed, but not in a mansion. If the funds are not helping the poor, feeding the hungry, spreading the gospel, find somewhere that is.
