 Saddleback Pastor Requests Nearly $1 Million in 2 Days

Quote:
Evangelical pastor Rick Warren, who generated controversy for giving the invocation at President Barack Obama's inauguration, is asking followers to donate nearly $1 million by the year's end.

Pastor Warren posted a letter on the Saddleback Church's Web site late Wednesday, appealing to parishioners to help fill a $900,000 deficit.

Ever since reading George Mueller's book about how he prays for his finances, I've been having a hard time not looking different at people who ask for money.

I know this is my own problem and own conviction but should Rick Warren, or anybody, be asking for this much money? I'm not sure if even I'm in the wrong here but this article is my pet peeve.

As have had I.

Paul did take up collections occasionally for different reasons though right. I have yet to settle on this.

 Re:

Your right...Paul did. But he was also a tent maker who didn't want to ask certain people for an offering for certain reasons.

Even the ecumenical movement is having a hard time, interesting. You'd think they'd have all kinds of support. I guess not.

 Re:

$900,000 should be a rather easy number for them to fill considering the size and socio-economic background of his church.

Very revealing. It appears these "believers" are more reliant on man and money than on God.

 Re:

You can be assured of one thing, and that is when any minister is begging for money, using the methods of the world to raise money, and promising the saints a reward if they will sow into their ministry, it is not of God.

If God is in it, then He will surely supply the need.

 Re:

What a privilege for Rick Warren!

To be a beggar for Jesus.

While the heathens mock us and say, "Where is the power of your God?"

Which should make us weep.

 Re: Saddleback Pastor Requests Nearly $1 Million in 2 Days

Two things...

One, what does a church actually do with 1 million dollars?

Two, Zac Poonen doesn't believe in preachers asking for money either. I only say that because he is a pastor (or an elder!) but he will not let any elder of his church or churches that he helps start ask for money OR a salary.

These are very good by Zac Poonen...
