Is it correct to transfer sinful money to God?

[A question by Ms. Thrylokya]

Swami replied: If the sinful money is already earned, it is better to spend it for God because God alone can digest the sinful money, which is a horrible poison that not only destroys the sinner but also his future dynasty. While earning sinful money, you should have sharp analysis. If you are offered sinful money, which was already earned by another sinner, rejecting it is not a wise thing. If you reject, the sinner will spend it for doing further sins. You take that money, but, do not enjoy it. Instead, you spend it for divine purposes. The important precaution is that you should not earn money in sinful way from a righteous person. If the money is holy (earned by justice), you shall not touch it in sinful way. This policy need not be applied for another context where you have to earn sinful money from a sinner. In that context, you earn the sinful money and spend for a justified purpose without yourself enjoying it or storing for your future generations.
