Central Conferences’ subsidies

Also known as welfare. What do they have to gain with reduced apportioned supplied subsidies? FREEDOM!

Stop with the GOP talking points

Seriously! This is about getting the African Church to self-sufficiency so they can self fund their ministries. Americans have treated them as colonies for over a hundred years now and this is wrong. In fact, the continent may provide an answer as to how the US can rebuild itself through smaller congregations. Trumpism has no role in Christianity let alone the Church universal.

And stop with Democrat talking points, while we're at it

Pointing out "welfare" inadequacies is not a GOP talking point. Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY) was an ardent critic of the emergence of welfare-state dependency. I agree, however, that Trumpism has no role in Christianity, nor does Obamism or Clintonism, or any other system based on secular politics.

By the way, there's no "African Church." There is a Christian Church in Africa, just as the Christian Church exists on all continents. The church is global, as you've stated every time you've said the Apostles Creed. A church that's "self-sufficient" is at its weakest; the church that is strongest relies totally on God and not itself.
