In a rare archaeological find, what is believed to be the oldest record of a church financial statement has been found. Someone who made his home available for the church to assemble seems to have kept track of all the income and expenses that were collected and distributed.
(Some of you skeptics will notice it is odd that this was done in English. He must have been
speaking writing in tongues.)
From what we know about the early church is there anything else suspect about this document. Is anything missing?
Do we think the early church needed a budget or financial statement?
Does Christ's church currently need a budget?
