This is a very interesting topic and think that this is a great topic of discussion. I think it depends on the person that is taking the money. If the money being taken from the church and the money is not being used for church functions I think the problem should be addressed as soon as possible.
The funny thing about this topic is that this is not the only church that money is being taken from for personal use. Sometimes I wonder if these types of church's are where you are at most likely they are everywhere. How many of these church's are being used more as a business than an actual place of worship? I can almost bet you that more than 50% of church's today are being used for business purposes.
Let's have a little example and tell me what you think!
If you were a business owner and you had a church what would be the best way to get more help than by donating to a charity for example your very own church! The more money you make the more you have to pay on taxes, so what better way to get a little break than by donating right!
I think that this is one of our biggest problems today. I think that places like this should not be considered a church and that any donations to these types of places should automatically be watched by auditors to make sure that the money for charity is actually being used in the church's best interest and not so that the pastor can drive his fancy car and dress in nice suits.
What is you take on this?
