CHICAGO (AP) — On a very memorable Sunday, Pastor Laura Truax surprised her congregation with a bold announcement: She was about to hand out money to everyone.
Not a huge sum, but the pastor said the LaSalle Street Church had received a tidy $1.6 million from a real estate deal, and $160,000 — a typical 10 percent tithe — would be divided among some 320 regular attendees. Each would get a $500 check to do something positive for anything or anyone, including themselves.
A female pastor??? 10 percent TITHE?  Doing something positive, for ANYONE, including themselves? Forget missions.  Forget the homeless, the widows, the orphans. Do something positive, for ME! (SRN)

Such a sad commentary for one calling itself the body of Christ.

  1. Such is 'church' in America, a nation void of truth and seeped in sin.

  2. Absolutely. I see a green scummy slime slowly, steadily moving across America, but hardly anybody notices. I no longer pray for mercy for the church or for America, I now pray for forgiveness.

  3. Please tell me this was just something found on the "Onion" or other parody news. :(

    There is no end to the depths of depravity among those who blaspheme the name of Christ.

  4. Sorry, I read this on SRN News. But you are correct in that there is no end to the depths of depravity among those calling themselves "christians".
