Money-Hungry Religion

Popular comedian George Carlin said, "But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good [expletive]story. [Expletive] [expletive]!"

Despite the fact that most people consider themselves to be morally "good" at heart, the Bible teaches that the heart of man is not good at all. Not in the slightest. It doesn't even teach that he's bad. Its moral prognosis is worse. The Scriptures say that all humanity is desperately wicked, to the core. There's not just one bad apple in the barrel.

As Mr. Carlin noticed, this rotten corruption seeps into every area of society. Millions have got away with billions through fraudulent business practices. Many are not only guilty of financial corruption, but men like Stalin and Hitler have murdered millions throughout history using political power. And wicked mankind has also used religion for his own evil purposes. He has not only slaughtered in the name of God, but he's lined his pockets throughout history, and he has done it in more modern times through the medium of television.

Look at how specific the Bible is when it speaks of these money-hungry Bible teachers that will deceive many with their slick words, and in so doing slur the name of Christianity:

"Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed" (2 Peter 2:2-3)

As the Bible says in this verse, there's good news for George Carlin and others like him who are deeply offended by hypocrisy in religion. All those who have committed any immoral practices (including religious hypocrisy) will end up getting exactly what they deserve. They will be damned in Hell by the justice of Almighty God. No one will get away with a thing. No one.
