Blog: What Is The IAS Doing? - 2014-07-24
You will be very pleased to know that the IAS is now informing their public what they are spending their money on.
Of course, the IAS doesn't waste money on things where there is no return. Buying buildings sounds reasonable, until you understand a) the building then becomes a church asset and b) in those areas that where the IAS is funding their ideal org building, people are EXPECTED to donate to the IAS "to purchase the building." Really, the IAS acts like a bank — they front the money to buy the building (other people's money - just like a bank) and then they collect the money back they fronted.
