    In the church
    Where does my money go?

    The neighborhoods getting worse
    I now have any empty purse
    And these hellfire words keep me low

    U say ask no questions
    Just sit back and wait
    Cuz the Lord will surely do it all

    Well if that is to be
    Why’d he create me
    In his image, his mind, standing tall

    I thought he stated
    That I was to do his will
    And of course he would always be here

    I know u need a Cadillac
    And u just can’t take it back
    But our people are living in fear

    I ask u this to say
    You are the loudest voice
    On every corner in every city

    Not much has improved
    I’m not trying to be rude
    But you need to start forming a committee

    I hold you accountable
    If you claim to lead me
    I’m tired of going nowhere

    Feed me knowledge for my soul
    Damanation? h__ll no!
    Hit the streets and show that u care

    If this is too much
    To tiresome of a task
    I’ll just have to up and leave

    I’ll seek knowledge on my own
    Through God’s will I’ll be strong
    And no longer will I be deceived

    Do u realize how strong
    We all could have been
    With your loud voice across the nation

    Still this same old static
    Now things are traumatic
    I think I'll have to change the station
    ______________________________________

    Too many churches
    Where the majority gather
    No real change, what is the matter?

    for all the blessings that I have recieved all i can say is MY God is an ontime God. (Hint His time is never our time). Judgement day will come they are on their own for he sees all and knows all. I am about my Father's business everyday.

    Peace

    You shouldn't have to question where the money goes, if it's being misused God knows. Perhaps the churches will lead us again, we shall see. Thought provoking drop.

    re:preacher

    If your pastor is sporting caddies, eating and wearing more jewelry than you could ever afford then it is time to go church hunting because that way of life is not of God.
