Donations to 'religion' declined $2 billion in 2018 after years of growth
Giving to houses of worship, denominational bodies and religious television and radio declined in 2018 after years of growth as individual Americans donated about $3 billion less than they did in 2017 under a new federal tax code, according to a new study.

The Giving USA Foundation, an arm of the Giving Institute, released its 2019 annual report on philanthropy in the U.S. conducted by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy on Tuesday.

The study is the longest-running and most comprehensive report on charitable giving in the United States. ...

Great comment brother. You and I are on the same page for sure. I know of no churches in my area that I would give to and certainly no TV ministries in my area.
But, like you, both of us find other ways to give to the glory of God.
Amen, amen, and another amen.

We are living in odd times, and sometimes I am sure what we do will appear odd. But the Spirit of God will surely be our Helper, and show us what is possible in these dreadful, apostate days, when so many churches are swallowed whole by that wretched ecumenical movement, which thing, as I've just learned, has its tentacles all around this world, and is determined on the complete destruction of Christianity. The word "separatism" takes on a whole new meaning in these last days.

Frank you certainly have a point,

The above is a golden oldie article such as when mentioning the Crouches but still quite insightful into the creatures, on the whole, who still make up televangelism

Mike, you made some good points, but people now have to divide their money to what they give to. To churches that are just an arm of a political party or to the political party itself.

It's funny how words can be used to promote an idea:

"It finds that total overall charitable giving in the country rose 0.7 percent to an even higher record level of nearly $428 billion actual dollars in 2018. But when inflation is accounted for, the study finds that total giving in 2018 declined by 1.7 percent from a record level in 2017"

When inflation is accounted for? Who does that to prove more giving is less giving?

"Giving to religion has actually been increasing every year but it has just been a lower percentage of the overall pie.”

So increase to one group is not increase, but decrease. It all depends on what "it" is. I wonder what it means in the Greek?

Those who only give to receive a tax deduction have received their reward anyway.

John of UK, nothing wrong with supporting the church in fact it's biblical, but if a pastor doesn't publish his salary you just might end up being one of the sheep that is being shorn
