3 In God We Trust “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4:12-13

4 In God We Trust “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21, 24 “You cannot serve both God and Money.”

7 In God We DisTrust We own our stuff We’re tippers (giving God what’s left) We use debt excessively Spending decisions are my decisions We can’t ever get enough

16 In God We DisTrust “As goes culture, so goes the church.” “I Never Thought I’d See the Day David Jeremiah 10/19/11

17 In God We DisTrust “Churches on the whole are continuing to spend more on current members and less on the larger mission of the church and cutting back on missionaries,” Sylvia Ronsvalle, Empty Tomb’s executive vice president, told the [Christian] Post. The State of Church Giving Through 2009 Empty Tomb Inc.

18 In God We DisTrust By increasing tithing to 10 percent, parishioners could help provide much needed relief efforts around the world and contribute to the end of many of the world’s greatest problems, while still maintaining their own church activities. But the “lukewarmness” of the church in the United States and not a lack of resources or methods posed serious consequences to both global evangelization and the end of physical suffering. If a church is turning inward and valuing the happiness of its members over service to others, it is moving on a spectrum toward pagan values, the vice president also stated.
