Pastor and church founder, Jim Costello worries that many religious organizations are so focused on raising money that they often fail to meet their primary objective of spiritualty assisting those in need.
Costello’s new book, “Perilous Times” warns that modern religion has reached a moral tipping point. It stresses the importance of maintaining tradition al biblical values and calls on readers to recognize mistakes made my many churches.
