I hear church personell tell you that one should give 10% of their money to the church. Some even say you are dishonest or disobedient if one doesnt give 10% tithe to the church. Is salvation dependent on tithe?? What if one doesnt have the income vs expenses to tithe??What if one doenst like the way the money is spent in church?? Do we as Christians have to be programmed little robots who say yes to everything a pastor says and wants with no dispute?? One CANNOT give to God only his surrogates (pastors, ministers) and my experience in life has shown me there is always deception with men concerning money. Of course, one can look at all the witches and warlocks on the so called Christian TV with their lies (and great personal incomes) to further substantiate the validity of money and churches. And of course, a pastor must advocate his tithing rule so that he can have income. What better way to try and insure one's income than by saying it is required by God. There is faith in God and Jesus but faith in what man says is always in doubt. And pastors are men not God.

If the lantern is needed at home, donating it to the mosque is haram (forbidden)

If the money for the poor box is needed at home, donating it to the church (preacher) is a sin.

Malachi 3:8-10

8 Will a man rob God?
Yet you have robbed Me!
But you say,
‘In what way have we robbed You?’
In tithes and offerings.

9 You are cursed with a curse,
For you have robbed Me,
Even this whole nation.

10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house

Why do you or god need food in god's house.

It very plainly says in the new testament that the 10% is for the poor, not to god or the preacher.

Now if you want to give extra for church maintenance or preacher maintenance, then so be it.

But, do not rob the poor.

Everybody has to as the question: Does my church rob the poor? If so, then you and the other members are robbing god.

DO THE MATH!

Most so-called men of god rob the poor and god....

If there is a god and heaven, then, god's will, will be done and the robbers will be jusged rather harshly.

Too many wills??????????

27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1

Period! Except for supporting the evangelist/missionaries who CAN'T hold down jobs at home because they travel, James 1 says it all.

The early church Jesus set up had church/assembly in their homes, sharing meals and helping each other. What gave "man" the right to change the LORD'S rules? No one did! Shame on these churches that have you in financial bondage and so busy with "church busy work" you can't get out into your communities to do the real work of Jesus...you know....like HE DID! REPENT and do works worthy of repentance!

Money and the churches. What a disgusting thing. trying to guilt someone into giving money. Where does the money go?? Pastor salary. New additions with nice profits for the architect etc. Maybe missions overseas with the "missionary" drawing a nice salary and you pay for it. Not me.
