The Pastor is to shepherd the flock and help them mature in their faith. I find it amazing that they must do this "in the dark" when it comes to the financial area. Most churches do NOT want the pastor to know what each family gives - probably from fear that he will be preferential to "good" givers (if THAT is a problem, you have the WRONG pastor!) YOU know what that Pastor makes. Should he know what YOU make and what YOU give? Hmmmm.
