Whos Robbing God?
Preachers are quick to tell us that if we dont tithe (old testament law) that we are robbing God. BUT...
Who are really the thieves and the robbers here?
Lets just imagine that your pastor is making an average salary of $50,000 per year.
Some of them will make 2, 3, or 4 times this amount. Some even more. But at $50,000, if your pastor preaches 3 sermons per week, without missing a service, he will have preached only 156 sermons per year.
If you divide the 156 sermons preached into his $50,000 salary, your pastor is being paid an average of $320 per sermon.
If his sermons are an average of 20 minutes long like most sermons, he is making $16 per minute!!
He is making more money in 1 minute than most of the members supporting his income make in an entire hour!!!
And what is even more shameful, is that even at this ridiculous rate of pay some of these guys are not even studying the bible to prepare their own sermons. They are secretly using commentaries, plagiarizing the work of others, or printing out sermons online and deceiving their congregations into believing that they are worthy of such high pay.
Most believers dont realize that they could stay home and read sermons online to themselves, keep their money, and cut out the middle man. Where in the bible does it say that all the members of the body need to pay one man to do the same job that all of the Sunday school teachers are willing to do week after week for free? If the laymen can serve the Lord out of a pure heart for free, then why cant the men that is SUPPOSE to be their spiritual example work with their own hands like the apostle Paul did, and still serve the body of Christ without being paid to do so?

I agree and the scumbag that judged this as clueless is probably a lying preacher extorting people with the lie of tithing. Might even be one of those preachers that molest children while preaching against the sin of "robbing God" by not tithing.

That is a good point, and the Holy Spirit has been teaching me some of these same things as I study the Word.
