Modest living allowance

SCRIPTURE: “Or in other words, if any man among you obtain five dollars let him cast them into the treasury; or if he obtain ten, or twenty, or fifty, or an hundred, let him do likewise; And let not any among you say that it is his own; for it shall not be called his, nor any part of it. And there shall not any part of it be used, or taken out of the treasury, only by the voice and common consent of the order.” -D&C 104:69-71. [source]

COMMENTARY: Why is it a secret that the general authorities are paid a “modest living allowance?” Why can’t the church be honest with its members about the cost of running a worldwide organization? It almost makes it seem like the leaders of the church know they have something to hide. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
