No one can slave for two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stick to the one and despise the other. YOU cannot slave for God and for Riches” (Matthew 6: 24-25).

You can’t worship Yahweh and money.

Did you know that a retired priest can earn more money than a practicing doctor or lawyer?  Who cares if you believe in the Yahweh or not, stay a priest long enough and you can retire to absolute luxury.

If your religion takes up offerings they are outside the will of Yahweh. Yahweh’s organization should be run based off of voluntary, discreet, not mandatory, donations. Did you know that in some places there are church taxes which are automatically deducted from your salary? For example, in Germany, depending upon the state you live in, 8-9% of your income is automatically deducted from your salary as “Kirchensteuer,” what means “church tax.”

In 2012, the Catholic Church received 5.2 million euros and the Protestant Church received 4.6 million euros only from German Church Taxes. Isn’t this Nauseating? These churches disregard the commandments of Yahweh so they can follow the traditions of men. Electronic fund transfers to the Vatican bank is not in the bible.

True religion should give away truth for free.  If you believe that what you write has the power of life and death then you should give it away for free. Does your religion give away bibles and study materials or does it charge for them? If it charges money, then it is outside the will of Yahweh.
