This post is not (just) about the ongoing City Harvest Church saga, but was inspired heavily by it. I am agnostic and as such, I view myself as really neither here nor there regarding my religious inclinations.
[But to summarise, I believe in fate, and possibly a supreme being, but I don’t believe in religions, with all the rituals and rules. I also disagree with the idea that a loving God (sometimes referred to as ‘Father’) would eternally damn his ‘children’, so to speak, who choose not to believe in the Church’s idea of what he is. If he (I don’t like capitalising my pronouns, sorry) actually does that, I wouldn’t want him for a father anyway.]
But enough about me, this post is about religion, specifically one of the largest ones : That of Christianity and its subsidiary interpretations. I.E. Catholicism, Protestantism etc. But mainly the large, rich churches [Looking at you, Catholics(The ones at the Vatican)].
As the title goes, this post will be about ‘Excessive Wealth’, which is wealth that is … well, excessive. For those looking for a proper definition, Google tells me it refers to what is “more than is necessary or normal”. So if you connect the two, excess wealth and the Christianity, you get … a scandal!
