Should churches be allowed to invest the money from donations to be used for investments?


Did you know that a lot of money given in the form of "tithing" or "donation" to churches are then used by the churches to invest in stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other investments solely for the benfit of the churches. Should these kinds of actions by churches be allowed?

    wjlambert- I do not understand how any church that claims to love and worship God would turn around and invest donated money in the ways of the world.
