A number of years ago I was sharing a house with a friend. We split the expenses 50/50. He started dating a woman who was a member of Robert Schuler's Crystal Cathedral bunch. No long afterward he came to me and asked if I could cover some of his expenses so he could take her out. I was working at a much higher salaried job and he seemed happier than I had seen in a long time so yeah he's my friend. A couple of months later I happened to be going through bills when I found an unsealed envelope with the church logo on it. Not knowing what it was I looked inside a found one of his checks made out to the church for a fairly large sum of money. He walked in and saw me with the check and asked me why I was going through his mail. I explained that it was opened and thought it was a bill or something. I then asked him why he was sending money to the church. He said is was his responsibility to support the church. I was really pissed and told him that he could give the church whatever he wanted but he had a responsibility to pay his share of the bills at home first and that by asking me to cover his half was 1) a lie because he said it was for his dating and 2) by having me cover his "secular" bills he was in fact having me support his church. His response was that I needed to do do something to be "right with GOD"! Needless to say I stopped covering for him, she moved in with her daughter and I eventually moved out as soon as I could. He contacted me years later to say he was divorced and wanted to know if I had been saved yet. Anybody else have an interesting religious friend story?
