Dan at Cerulean Sanctum is holding three very interesting and comprehensive polls on church and individual finance. In the past Dan has demonstrated a real interest in how churches and individual Christians help less fortunate people, including other Christians. The pools will be up until next Wednesday and I encourage you to check them out and vote if you wish. Here are a few of the results so far:
*My church has taken the initiative to prepare a plan of action and to set aside funds to help its members should a severe economic downturn arise.
69% of the respondents said "False." In other words, their churches had NOT put aside funds to help it's members in a time of severe economic downturn.
*If economic conditions worsen and I lost my job for an extended period of time, the amount of savings I have set aside would last…
The majority, 49%, said 4 months. And, that was the lowest time choice offered.
*My church’s disclosure of its income and expenses can best be described as…
The majority, 51%, said completely open which I must admit surprised me, as I have been in few churches that disclosed anything about their finances. And I've been in a lot of different denominations.
These represent only a very few of the many fascinating questions Dan asks. Here is the link again. Cerulean Sanctum. Just keep scrolling down and voting and scrolling down and voting until you have finished all three posts in the "Banking on God" series.
