The poor because you don't have to have a building for church. You could have church anywhere. What the poor need first is Jesus. Some large churches are large simply to minister to the number of people who need Jesus. These churches aren't built to attract people; they attract people because of their commitment to Christ, and they need extra facilities to keep up with the demand. Too often the "poor" aren't all that poor. I'm sorry to say that, but I know of one individual who lives like a homeless person, yet she has a nice home and is independently wealthy. Many churches in this area direct the poor to a central location that serves as a clearing-house. We need to be careful that we don't get judgemental about the lavish churches; they could be ministering in ways that "poor" churches cannot. (I'll admit, though, there are plenty of these multi-bazillion dollar places that would be better torn down.

Jesus is long lead and it is pointless to ask what he would have approved of because nobody can answer that. Even if they could, why would you accept his personal opinion over your own judgement? He lived in a totally different time and country and your brain is a lot more developed than his would ever have been, make your own decisions in life, it's a lot better for everyone.

What should you do if Jesus wants everyone to know that the Mormons are wrong?

This question could be directed at any one of the 1,000 plus Christian Churches and the other world religions. I am truly amazed that you are in touch with "JESUS" or are you in touch with the other guy. You see "JESUS" came to Joseph Smith and conversed with him and told him that none of the churches were correct (at that time 1830). From that visit with "JESUS", Joseph Smith was guided in the building of the 'Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints'. Even the name of the Church has Jesus in it. I would challenge you to check out the LDS Church and do an indepth study of it. Throw away the anti-Mormon literature and you may find out that the Church is NOT wrong.
