12. That is why the smaller churches are often better


My church has a massive organ, music (ie entertainment), a gym, etc. Take a look at the spending associated with many churches. Only a small portion makes it to assisting the poor. A lot of the resources are expended on college aged students of the middle class and higher as another example.

I am not saying that churches are bad, but you have to realistic about what charitable giving actually means. Paying the staff who give religious education to you and your kids, counseling to your family, and a religious ceremony that is often indistinguishable from a concert is really not feeding and caring for the poor.
