I grew up under a bunch of different christian organizations baptist, nazerene, lutheran, etc.
My parents were really trying to find where they belonged in the whole scheme.
They settled now but I've seen the whole bad side of the church organizations... nothing but a pyramid scheme.
So I attend church service from time to time, I feel like a hypocrit at times because I know what I did the night before (hehe)... but because I've see how money really gets used in some places I dont feel comfortable giving directly to the church, I know that a lot of people tithe directly to the church and that will keep it running.
Instead I've made it a practice that everytime I buy groceries, I buy some non perishable stuff and go out to skid row or wherever there are some bums and stuff or find the one's that walk through my apartment complex and hand out food and stuff.
I'd rather know that I'm doing something than find out I'm giving my money to build some already well off person's fortune.
