The church loves money
I think people often mis-quote 1st timothy 6:10 http://bible.cc/1_timothy/6-10.htm , it gets shortened to "money is the root of all evil".

I think most churches love money, the have no qualms about passing a plate around. I dont know if its common or not, but my fathers preacher makes over $100,000 a year.

Funny how many will preach against money and power, yet that is exactly what the church wants.
