    MONEY in the CHURCH

    "Today Christians spend more money on dog food than missions."

    - Leonard Ravenhill

    "I am dismayed by the contracts required by some contemporary

    musical groups. To perform a concert at your church, the stated

    fee will be so much (in either four or five figures) plus round trip

    airfare--often first class, not coach. Every detail of the accommo-

    dations is spelled out, down to "sushi for twenty persons" waiting

    at the hotel, in one case. All this is done so that the group can

    stand before an inner-city audience and exhort the people to

    "just trust the Lord for all your needs."

    - Jim Cymbala

    "Nothing I am sure has such a tendency to quench the fire of

    religion as the possession of money."

    - J. C. Ryle

    "You can sing all you want about how you love Jesus, you can

    have crocodile tears in your eyes, but the consecration that

    doesn't reach your purse has not reached your heart."

    - Adrian Rogers

    "Do not think me mad. It is not to make money that I believe a

    Christian should live. The noblest thing a man can do is, just

    humbly to receive, and then go amongst others and give."

    - David Livingstone

    "It's about time we stopped buying things we don't need with

    money we don't have to impress people we don't like."

    - Adrian Rogers

    "Sixteen of the thirty-eight parables of Jesus deal with money.

    One out of ten verses in the New Testament deals with that

    subject. Scripture offers about five hundred verses on prayer,

    fewer than five hundred on faith, and over two thousand on

    money. The believer's attitude toward money and possessions

    is determinative." - John MacArthur
