I pastored local churches for about 30 years. I know how important money can become in the life of a church. I also know how easy it is to see people only in terms of their usefulness and what they can contribute, including financially.
My immediate thought was why would people subject themselves to this kind of nonsense and abuse? Then I remembered that even though Young has pushed the theological idea of tithing to its legalistic and vindictive extreme, the overwhelming majority of people seem to require and request rules, and the employment of shame, guilt, fear and intimidation to obey them.
