Sumptuous rectories? You cannot serve both God and money.
Regarding “Some Texas Religious Leaders Live in Lavish, Tax Free Estates Thanks to Obscure Law” (December 9): My values are reflected in my Christian heritage, so the article on Lavish Church-Owned Rectory troubled me. Didn’t church leaders read, “You cannot serve both God and money” (Matthew 6:24; Luke 16:13)? When a friend is considering joining a church, I suggest they look at the residence where the church leader lives and the vehicle they are driving. If these are much more expensive than my friend’s house or vehicle, they may have to look elsewhere for a church to join.
