Houses of Worship? http://bowdenblog.wordpress.com/2010/11/19/houses-of-worship/
According to David Platt:
[More than a billion people in the word] attempt to survive on less than a dollar per day . . . the same amount of money I spend on French fries for lunch.
When we pool our resources in our churches, what are our priorities? Each year in the United States, we spend more than $10 billion on church buildings. In America alone, the amount of real estate owned by institutional churches is worth over $230 billion. We have money and possessions, and we are building temples everywhere. Empires, really. Kingdoms. We call them houses of worship. But at the core, aren’t they too often outdated models of religion that wrongfully define worship according to a place and wastefully consume our time and money when God has called us to be a people who spend our lives for the sake of His glory among the needy people outside our gates?
