The church loves money
I think people often mis-quote 1st timothy 6:10 1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. By craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. , 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.
