Jesus, Can You Spare A Dime????

| Filed under: Business Blitz

Times have been tough in the real estate market these last few years - even for churches and places of worship!

Since 2008, nearly 200 religious facilities have been foreclosed on by banks, up from eight during the previous two years and virtually none in the decade before that, according to a new report.

    AND…………I am guessing, something I shouldn't do, BUT……. ATTENDENCE HAS DROPPED, BIG TIME, FOR A LOT OF RELIGIONS. And if they are not getting them in the front door, they are not getting the money in the collection plate… and EVEN THOSE GETTING THEM IN, TIMES ARE HARD… So, were a lot of these RELIGIOUS HOUSES TAKING OUT EQUITY LOANS, 2ND MORTGAGES? Most should not have their original MORTGAGE, SINCE THEY HAVE BEEN THERE FOR DECADES SOME CENTURIES, but, no matter how many people attend, the HEATING BILL IS STILL THE SAME. THE REPAIRS FOR AN OLD BUILDING ARE STILL NEEDED…. and with less people as members…. it is a shame, that a house of religion is closed due to foreclosure, but it happens.

    Great! How do we get rid of the rest of them? And before you religious nuts go crazy about my comment, your Bible even says that when Jesus returns he will NOT be going to the churches. Think for a moment why that is.

    Around me, on long island, growing up, we had a # of synaquoges, Now, you need to go 3 towns over to find one. If any of these places had mortgages, THEY TOO, WOULD HAVE GONE UNDER, BUT, who ever buys the places, Remember KARMA… the old LIMELIGHT in NYC was a catholic church. Even if you are an atheist, I would think twice, 3, 4 maybe 20 times before opening up, say a x rated video place where you used to have orthodox worshipping.

    It's a goods start! If you really want to get closer to "God" go outside and marvel at all the wonders of nature.

    Awesome!! Now we need to start taxing them like they should always have been. People want to chit chat with their imaginary friend, they can do it on their own dime.

    Please stop hating. Love your neighbor as yourself. Even though our pastor has been cut back to quarter time she still continues to minister to the homeless every Sunday. Our Street Church pretty much has a zero budget for 2011. We meet at the local park-n-ride parking lot to have fellowship and ministry, after the service we share lunch together. ALL ARE WELCOME! !
