The Power of Greed

Sam Rainer

April 1, 2008

The below statistics appeared in the March 2008 edition of Christianity Today and were compiled by Ted Olsen:

$23 billion is projected to be given to global foreign missions in 2008…yet…

$25 billion is projected to be embezzled from churches and Christian institutions in 2008.

I am convinced that greed is one of the most powerful forces in all of humanity. But these figures shock even this humble researcher. How horrible is it to see people exchange the significance of the cross for the dollar sign?

These will receive harsher punishment.
