The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Church tithing? There’s an app for that!

Perhaps the biggest dichotomy in the Christian religion is how the church obsesses more about collecting money for their corporate entities than it does about discipleship and personal relationships with its parishioners.  And most ironic in this is that the very savior whom they claim to follow spoke out against the love of money, and on the topic of money, more than any other subject in the New Testament other than the Kingdom of God (The Gospel).
Many people have watched a televangelist, or heard some Christian leader on the radio and felt obliged or led to make a donation to support that ministry.  However, this often comes with a caveat, such as the requirement to fill out personal information cards, which then leads to these ‘ministries’ sending out donation requests to your homes for the next two years or more.
Religion today is big business, with nearly all denominations and church incorporated through the government to receive a tax exempt 501(c)3 status.  And with emerging technology allowing for people to be able to pay for things such as charitable giving with their Smartphones, the new money changers in the temple are run not by men, but by software applications.

This is what happens when Christians give to the building and not the Temple

Christian tithes and donations in America is a billion dollars business.  Churches, ministries, and especially televangelists feel that it requires vast sums of money to to what they call, 'spreading the Gospel'.

Unfortunately, these men and institutions forget that spreading the Gospel was a form of network marketing, not corporatism, and in the bible Jesus only needed 12 men with just the robes on their backs to do what millions today require billions of dollars to accomplish.

However, just because a man (or woman) has an ecclesiastical title in front of their names, does not mean they are doing the true work of God, nor are they producing the fruit that Jesus said would come when people accomplished things in His name.  In a new story out on the fraud and corruption of the American church system, millions of dollars donated by well-minded Christians are going to fund extravagent lifestyles for the select 1%ers, and little is done to actually preach the true Word of God in exchange.




Two former employees of the world's largest Christian television channel Trinity Broadcasting Network are accusing the non-profit of spending $50 million of its funding on extravagant personal expenses.
Among purchases, the network founded by Televangelists the network founded by Televangelists Paul and Jan Crouch, is accused of misappropriating its 'charitable assets' toward a $50 million jet, 13 mansions and a $100,000-mobile home for Mrs Crouch's dogs. - Daily Mail


All of this should not be surprising to those who do a little research, since its common knowledge that the Vatican is one of the wealthiest institutons in the world, along with the Mormon church, which has a $50 billion industry of its own.

In the bible, tithes were supposed to be paid to the priests and the temple for the work they do for God, but in the New Testament, each individual beleiver IS the High Priest, and their bodies are the temple for it contains the Spirit of God.  Thus the choice becomes... stop giving to corporations who use the name of God to enrich themselves and start giving individually to fellow Christians who need assistance, for you will be following the EXACT will of Christ and the New Covenant.
