Problem with Christian charity vs Christmas Pageant celebration
I just saw Good Morning America on CBS and they were running a story on First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale. This particular church had just spent over $1,000,000 for a freakin' Christmas pageant.
With Christianity's ( ergo, Jesus ) emphasis upon charity, good works and helping the poor isn't this setting a bad example by spending such a huge amount of mammon on what amounts to a Christmas play ?
Wouldn't it have been more consistent with their own religious standards to have shown a little humility, scaled back their production and then shared their financial bounty with some homeless shelters or something ?
