Or do you think it strange that the church might reimburse someone who is using their own resources in the service of the Church?
Do you tithe? Do you claim tithing on your taxes?
Are you as foolish as you appear?
BTW I have no problem with that..I believe it is scripitual ..if you guys want him to be a paulper or live like a king it is your dime...just do not think we are so stupid to believe he lives on nothing..my guess is that "allowance " when all the perks are added in is quite handsome ..I have seen his suits (or are they on an expense account? )
Does anyone in your church have the total compensation package or is it a secret?
