How would he get them out? The Katrina free loaders are still in Houston, living for free.



do you have a source, or just spouting fox news or breitbart nonsense?

You know it flooded too right?


If Lakewood flooded, why did the Pastor suddenly decide today to bring flood victims there? Seems kind of cruel and un-Christian-like to me.

Can't much trust a guy who can't possibly understand the actual trials and tribulations his sheep go through. He talks them out of money they sorely need, while he prances around his incredibly large, ridiculous mansions. Because God is "ok with it."

Heck.. it's almost like having a Billionaire President who can't possibly understand what his citizens actually go through!

Blaine,

Straight up question, I was attacked and struck back, why the same standards? You are a very honest mod, there are some that are not, this is the reason I ask you this question.

I don't know if they are living there for free, but...

""While the exact number is unclear, around 250,000 people escaped to Houston from New Orleans after Katrina with an estimated 100,000 remaining permanently in the city and surrounding towns.""

That's a huge number, when you consider that New Orleans' population as of 2016 is only 391,000 people. They were at 500,000 pre-Katrina.

IM surprised people do not realize that if they are modern christians you are not obligates to tithe at all. You are to give IF you can and it does not have to be the first 10 percent of your pay.

But, if you look beyond the excuses, there could be deeper, religious reasons. Perkins said last year that Hurricanes are a sign of God's unhappiness that Abortions, and Gay Marriages, are legal in the U.S..

Nah, not Joel Osteen. He just looked at all the extra money it'd cost. If a preacher wouldn't help others because of that, then again, our bible warns against such "teachers" and "prophets". God's wrath is much bigger than that if and when he chooses to unleash it. It may be a sign of the times, but it isn't God's wrath.

When I was involved in a small SBC church, 10% of gross was expected, as explained by the pastor

The articles says that those numbers are estimates, because exact figures aren't available. Knowing how many are working and how many are on welfare (living for free), is a total unknown.

As mentioned a few pages back, there was a roof leak, which lead to flooding in a couple areas. But you're right. The majority of the church was NOT flooded. Which is why it suddenly started accepting flood victims today.

But I bet most of the victims being accepted are from the "nice" areas of Houston.

That may be true but In the bible is pretty clear about things we are to do as christians. The pastor was a liar in your church.

Care you and I are pretty far politically apart. From some of your comments, you are a good person. I would like to publically recognize that. Good people of all sorts should be recognized.

Like I said before, right wingers (especially the religious right wingers) are in a cult. Anyone who supports these con-artists and believe a single iota that comes out of their mouths is in a cult and deserves to lose their money to these leaches.

I would agree, and think I expressed it earlier in the thread.
