It is degrading. That's why

It is degrading.

That's why he asks his lackeys to do it.

Unfortunately, like all embezzlers, they make sure that the person who requested the money never gets it.

I'm not sure if that link

I'm not sure if that link is an internet vortex or what, but I don't think that God asks for money. People ask for money. Some ministers are certainly in the "gospel business", that is, they're in it solely for financial purposes, but ministry takes money. It's just a fact. I don't think it's fair to lump every single Christian ministry that asks for money or takes donations into the same category. Lots of ministries are out there doing good things for the world, not simply sitting around praying for a miracle, but actually out in the community and out in the world fighting for justice, peace and human dignity.

Malachi 3:10 Bring the

Malachi 3:10
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.

Looks like a direct request from God to me.

I wish the misters you speak of (the ones doing real good in the world) were the rule. Unfortunately, they seem to be an exception.
