    Obviously churches receive tithe from members.
    Eg Some Mega USA might be receiving similar per day- hence the obligations also.
    Let the Trinidad and Tobago and the government financial control also do soul searching. The Pastor must have keeping tithe and offering money because the government and financial institution has no good financial control and Pastor has no confidence in them. Many churches have fat banks account and to keep money to himself is not a crime because it an alternative to keep money.Go to Japan most old people keep money on home banks.This should not raise storm anywhere Pastor has done nothing wrong and unbanking the money there is no wrong. If you are given unsolicited money and keep it where is the crime.
    The money seem huge but the church has huge responsibilities to meet.
    Stop scadalizing.

    fellow christens needed help all over the world, raging from church buildings , food, clothing, Christian books , the pastor should have helped through that money than just kept it in his house for long, the pastor has been in many parts of the world and he saw the needs in fellow believers.
