Should ministries return stolen donations?
from Christianity Today
Within five years, a businessman tithed about $300,000 to a Michigan megachurch. But after a grand jury indicted David McQueen in 2012 for running a $46.5 million Ponzi scheme, the federal government asked Resurrection Life Church for the money back. In February, the 8,000-member congregation in suburban Grand Rapids said no. “[We] had no knowledge of the source of the funds,” finance pastor Bernard Blauwkamp wrote to the U.S. Attorneys Office. Regardless, the money — donated from 2005 to 2009 — was spent, he said.
