I have been attending the Church of Christ, which is a mainstream fundamentalist church, for the past 39 years with my wife's family.

A large part of what is given to churches ends up paying for preacher's salaries, new buildings, electricity, heat, insurance, etc. Only a very small part of what is given to churches is used for "charity" and that has strings attached to it. It is closely tied to proselytizing, winning souls, etc. Especially in places like Africa, Latin America, and the Philippines.

Very little of what is given to churches here helps the poor in the United States.
