Alla, in what sense are this 50% you talk about Mormons if they don't contribute financially and don't go to church?
They are still members of the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter day Saints.
They are just not active.

I see.

So if you actually attend church you are expected to contribute financially?

You are expected to do what you by your own choice promised to do: always remember Christ and keep His commandments.
But it is not expected from you to do everything perfectly 100%.

It would be very stupid of God to ask me to do something impossible.
If I can not comprehend what faith in Christ means I am not required to act according to what I do not understand.
But if I have faith in Christ because I can comprehend what it means I am required to act according to this faith.
I can say that eternity makes no sense to me and still be Mormon in good standing.

Cute, but not relevant. We are not even discussing the same topic.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.

Of course, I am expected to pay tithings, fast offerings and other contributions. Why? Because I promised to God that I will do it. Why did I promise this to God? Because I really love God.
But God doesn't expect me to do it perfectly. He knows I can NOT do it perfectly. No one can.
Church leaders(God's representatives on Earth) know this, too. They are not perfect themselves.

Hmm.. are you trying to tell me that black men are not capable to be better than liars? I think it's racist.
