well,about 50 dollars was most likely all they had left for the whole month for anything . and it was the unregenerate again

  that spent their 50 dollars at the casino. what's the difference from giving it to the crooks at the casino or the crooks of sme

  of these so called 'ministries"?  only difference is one is robbing in the name of God and the other the state.

  now this is imo Anna..but I do think I have a scriptural basis in regard to it.  no offense meant to you  :HeartThrob:

Oh Seth, don't be sad... those little old ladies delight in giving (outward behavior) "tithes"...   I live with many little old ladies who rush to play bingo, travel to casinos, etc., etc.,.... they're doing what they as unregenerate beings are capable of doing...   If you're going to be sad... be sad that many of us who claim to be born again are wasting time... are we doing what we are capable of doing?????

I know what you mean,  but I feel that if it didn't make me sad, I wouldn't care. Does that make sense?

It is hard not to care when seeing the bondage of sectarianism.

Had a Christian brother come up to me today to share some stuff.  It got into some uncomfortable territory talking about sect led Christianity.  I cared.......too much.

  in the name of God/Christ..by such as these.
