The Living Word Tabernacle in Waverly, Ohio, terminated the membership of Loretta Davis recently, according to a July report by WCMH-TV in Columbus, because she had stopped paying her tithe. Davis' contributions ended in January after she was hospitalized the first of 15 times this year for congestive heart failure. The church's founder said non-member Davis could still attend, but Davis' daughter said, "In the time of (her) need, (the church) should be caring, supporting, asking what she needs, help her if she needed help." (When healthier, Davis was donating $60 a month out of her $592 Social Security check.) [WCMH-TV, 7-15-05]

What that church did had NOTHING to do with Jesus. Quite the opposite in fact. I hate when people use God as reason to oppress and take advantage of other people.

I never really got why churches had "memberships". Isn't everyone supposed to be welcome?

Note: I'm veryveryvery cold. Thought I'd share. :)

Man, so was I! --- And yeah.. it's all about getting money, it seems. Or creating a community. Depends on the church and your point of view, I suppose.
