Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Enigma(m): 5:51pm On Aug 29, 2011
Here are examples of three Christian givers. (I am using just three examples but people can figure out that there are myriad permutations)


1. Mr A earns 1000 a month; unfailingly he gives 100 a month as "tithe" in/to "church"; he gives 50 a month as offering; he then gives up to 20 to other needy causes outside "church".


2. Mr B earns 1000 a month; he gives anything up to 90 in/to church every month, he then gives 110 to other needy causes outside the "church".


3. Mrs C is a seller of "provisions"; any time that she is going to buy stock, she buys 10% extra (e.g. instead of buying 100 cans of milk, she buys 110); she regularly takes the extra 10% to her local orphanage; she then gives about 5% of her net profits in/to "church".


NB Please feel free to vote entirely anonymously without giving any explanation or reason for your post vote. However, I really would be happy to see any reason given for voting in any way at all. Thanks.   smiley

AFAIK none of them is robbing God, unless any of them have oppressed people and crushed innocents in their business in order to make that dough. e.g. Mrs C could have sold at inflated prices just to make more dough.

My 2 cents.

None of the above.

@ Inesqor

Nice to 'see' you again; how's tricks? smiley

@Enigma:

Brother man I dey o. LMAO at your signature!! Hahahaha. I believe family and work are great.

Well I have actually not been as far away as might be thought. I was on a quest for myself so I was posting as another ID (Dulcet7). Now I'm done so I am back to posting as InesQor.
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Enigma(m): 6:53pm On Aug 29, 2011
Encroyable! I was very curious about that Dulcet7 ID all the while, lol. cheesy
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by InesQor: 7:00pm On Aug 29, 2011
@Enigma Err yeah. sad I guessed I better own up if I'm going to use this handle again, lest I'm in soup, like last time when Deep Sight and Tudor had at me. wink
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Enigma(m): 7:01pm On Aug 29, 2011
No problem bros; for me, that was settled once you cleared the air. smiley
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Jenwitemi(m): 7:02pm On Aug 29, 2011
None of the above. As long as one sees giving as some sort of tax, then it is nothing but giving under duress. Giving should be spontaneous and straight from the heart, out of love and compassion for life. Besides, it is impossible to rob the creator in any shape or form. We can only rob ourselves, but not the creator. smiley
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by davidylan(m): 7:07pm On Aug 29, 2011
none of the above. Christ advocated giving to the poor just as much as the preacher being blessed by the ministering of those under him.

At least it is stimulating discussion on a controversial subject. I dont see this as a poll as much as a question that forces you to dig back to the bible.
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by blank(f): 8:34pm On Aug 29, 2011
No one. Just the pastors.
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by harakiri(m): 8:43pm On Aug 29, 2011
No one is robbing anyone. It's merely and exchange of cash for services rendered e.g the customers come to be deluded and brainwashed with sunday-sunday sessions and the man of god recieves payment for his "work". Ceteris paribus! Nuff said!

Stimulating discussion? Even the devil was the first recorded to start a stimulating discussion so what profit. The OP(whom i regard btw) said 'another poll', you david say it's not a poll. Well, my hands are off o, i'm shutting the door behind me also(though i'll peep/behold through the keyhole).

Ha InesQor, not all proof is mathematical na. And something being a mathematical method is not same as mathematics. Anyway enjoy.

Actually you intended to employ a logical deductive proof using Bible verses, no? Logic is a [i]sect [/i]of mathematicsgrin as are all math methods.

The point I'm making is that math is just a tool for measurement (here, polls) and evaluation (here, a comparisons of the ideas) and nothing more.  wink

Stay blessed brother.

Bump.

It would be nice to see more voting on this poll. smiley
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Pastor Kun(m): 7:23am On Sep 01, 2011
It is those who are collecting tithes in God's name that are robbing God and his children.
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Zikkyy(m): 12:50pm On Sep 01, 2011
@Enigma, Nna an option is missing oh angry there is no way i'll vote if you don't have pastor listed as an option angry

Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Zodiac61(m): 2:05pm On Sep 01, 2011
None of them. The money was not god's to start with.
The money given to the church could have been used to do better things.
tongue tongue tongue tongue
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by ogajim(m): 3:52pm On Sep 01, 2011
The term "robbing God" came from the old practice of some Priests saving the BEST parts of Temple offerings/tithes for themselves and instead offering unbefitting goods on the altar unto the Lord.


Giving to Church in modern times and neglecting one's family for instance can't be giving can it? We have to give from the HEART to whomever we chose to give to and not restricted to a "Church" or building.

Reminder

Again -- please remember that voting can be done entirely anonymously and without giving any reason for the voter's choice; also, this poll is not about winning/losing but an exercise in the belief that when confronted with important choices/options, people tend to think carefully.
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Pastor Kun(m): 10:45am On Sep 02, 2011
The results of the poll so far indicate that majority of nairalanders now realise that tithing is nothing but an elaborate fraud created by men and being used to fleece believers whilst giving them the impression that the tithe money is being collected on God's behalf.
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Snowwy: 11:34am On Sep 02, 2011
^^^^^^
Actually, the result shows a lot more people believe in tithing.
The word of God is the final say, no poll result will change that.
Re: Another Poll! - Who Is Robbing God? by Nobody: 2:24pm On Sep 02, 2011
Tithe is the biggest deceit in churches today. God will one day open the eyes of those you are under this tithe law of thier false pastors.

i think you framed the question in a wrong way. it should be like this:

Which pastor is robbing MR. fooledbyjesus?

Here are examples of one Christian giver. (in 3 different cases)

1. Mr fooledbyjesus earns 1000 a month; unfailingly he gives 100 a month as "tithe" in/to "church" A; he gives 50 a month as offering; he then gives up to 20 to other needy causes outside "church" A.


2. Mr fooledbyjesus earns 1000 a month; he gives anything up to 90 in/to[b] church B[/b] every month, he then gives 110 to other needy causes outside the "church" B.


3. Mr fooledbyjesus is a seller of "provisions"; any time that he is going to buy stock, she buys 10% extra (e.g. instead of buying 100 cans of milk, he buys 110); he regularly takes the extra 10% to her local orphanage; he then gives about 5% of her net profits in/to "church" C.

You are obviously living in denial, but I give glory to God that more and more of his children are being set free from the evil shackles of tithes which mere men have placed on innocent believers.
