A lot of bad with few pieces of good

I've had a terrible time finding really good books to use as curriculum.  In many books there is a little good and much bad.  I will take the little good and build on it to make a  truly Christian curriculum where I can help ladies.

Titus 2King James Version (KJV)

But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

I am an aged woman and I want to do as God directs me to do in Titus 2.  There is so little any more in our culture that follows Titus 2 and fewer still ladies that will instruct young women.  I pray that God will guide me in doing a good job.

This is a post from Amy Tan's book Saving Fish From Drowning

The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding. —ALBERT CAMUS

 A pious man explained to his followers: “It is evil to take lives and noble to save them. Each day I pledge to save a hundred lives. I drop my net in the lake and scoop out a hundred fishes. I place the fishes on the bank, where they flop and twirl. “Don’t be scared,” I tell those fishes. “I am saving you from drowning.” Soon enough, the fishes grow calm and lie still. Yet, sad to say, I am always too late. The fishes expire. And because it is evil to waste anything, I take those dead fishes to market and I sell them for a good price. With the money I receive, I buy more nets so I can save more fishes. —ANONYMOUS

I often feel that a lot of this happens in the world.

We are going to make a church that takes no donations of any kind at our church

Hello followers,
After having seen many reports that the church is failing in America and that many of the youth don't go to church, I've been trying to find out a reason why.  I can not go into detail at this point as I've been very ill but one of the reasons I think is the non profit status.  Churches spend most of their time trying to get money.  All the time we need money.  The priest says I deserve a really good salary so get out and raise money.  Well most time is spent making money than teaching people about Christ and making disciples. Also, it makes the church cater to the ones with money.  I've seen it many time.  A wealthy person makes the rules for Christ not Christ making the rules.  So in order to make this a Christ centered church with emphasis on making disciples and not money we will accept no donations of any kind.  More information coming later.
