David Lee had just opened his wallet for two successive offerings at a church one Sunday morning when a pastor walked onto the pulpit to pass on a request. "You all going to think I'm crazy, but God says give again," the pastor said.

If you GO to those Churches believing in the UTTER ROT that they "teach", NATURALLY the Preachers KNOW you will be a SUCKER for their usual manipulation and scamming. Once you "open your mind" to Superstitious Nonsense, your Judgement has ALREADY gone flying out the window... or out thru the HOLES IN YOUR HEAD!

There are plenty of churches out there who don't use pressure to get people to give. Find one of them, embrace the faith and support to the best of your ability. Obviously churches need financial support, not just for the pastor and the building, but for the programs they support. It is well worth the giving when you have found the right church to support, just use good sense and trust your intuition when making that choice.

I didn't bother reading to the end of this article. Giving should be discreet, not ostentatious.
