II Corinthians 8:7-15

I haven’t come for your money. Nor will I promise you that God will make you wealthy if you write a check. I watched a television evangelist giving advice to people with too much credit card debt. He suggested that people pick up the phone and use the one credit card they have that hasn’t maxed out, and send him a $1,000 donation. This “seed” money, as he calls it, will allow God to spring into action and eliminate, like magic, all your credit card debt. Now, I can understand that this can be appealing because plenty of folks would rather have their debts forgiven than their sins, but this preacher is lying through his teeth and he knows it. See you in church as we explore the way to excel in generosity and empathy.
