No Need for Greed

I'm really shocked and very disappointed to see how greed and selfishness have gotten a hold on the Church. The Church is supposed to be the likeness of Jesus just as He was the likeness of God the Father. When people saw Jesus, they saw God. When people see us, they're supposed to see Jesus! Selfishness and greed are the absolute opposite of what Jesus called his followers to be! Jesus told us to "give to anyone who asks, expecting nothing in return". The Bible tells us "Don't be selfish; don't try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves". Jesus said that people would know that we are His because they will see the love we have for others and for each other.
I see too many Christians doing things just to be seen doing them. I see them building up their own name and bragging about their "spirituality"! I see them patting the "big name preachers" on the back and then snubbing their "poor" brothers. I see them using their church membership as a business card! I see them flaunting their authority and "lording over" their brothers and sisters!
The Bible tells us that there is coming a "spring cleaning" and that it will begin in the house of God! Let the cleaning begin! Let the Spirit of God begin to purge the Church of theses hideous and ungodly sins.
