Why cash remains sacred in American churches

In Pursuite of The Almighty's Dollar“As of Tuesday, June 27, it has been 50 years since the first automated cash dispenser – which came to be known as an automated teller machine (ATM) – was inaugurated in London.”
Every day of the week in contemporary America (and especially on Sundays) people raise money for their churches and religious enterprises.
In his article, Dr. James Hudnut-Beumler explores how the ATM and the idea of “cash” has impacted churches. While the focus is on the evangelical wing of the church, especially the “debt-is-evil” crowd, this is a primer for all church leaders regarding how offerings and money are considered in our churches today.
