The above phrase is used by a popular credit card company and after this article, a lot of people are going to want to keep more of their money in their own pocket… I found the article below on ajc.com This is the kind of behavior that turns a lot of people away from the church. This sorry pastor not only stole tithes from the church, he used it to purchase lingerie, leather goods, and God only knows what else….
According to AJC.COM
A Savannah pastor must spend 28 months in prison and pay his former church more than $178,000 after authorities say he stole tithes and church donations and put it in his personal account.
Corey Megill Brown, 47, was sentenced Friday, just months after he pleaded guilty to mail fraud that led authorities to the embezzlements that occurred between 2008 and 2014, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Georgia’s Southern District said in a news release.
The pastor worked at the Second African Baptist Church and was a chaplain for the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.
Brown deposited the stolen funds into a shadow bank account called “Romans 12 Ministries” and used the money to make purchases at lingerie and leather goods stores, authorities said.
