Cheap Church Buildings Reflect Cheap Theology

In our society there is a tendency to frown upon expensive church buildings. The rationale is there are better ways to use that money, like missions or helping the poor. In Exodus 25 we learn the Israelites built the tabernacle out of expensive materials like gold, silver, and gemstones. They built an expensive tabernacle because Yahweh is worthy of an expensive sanctuary. When we hesitate to build expensive churches, we say there is a better way too use that money, but we need to ask if our hesitation reflects a low opinion of God, a belief that God is not worthy of an expensive building.
