because, They happen to be so foolish to have believed that a man in Israel died for the sins of the whole world! How would you have convinced a fool that a man far away in far away Asia die for the whole sins of world? Religion is Scam....!!!

hilarious I must say.

the truth is this, most times the amount of money we give as offering is usually as a result of how the preaching/sermon moved us. sometimes, it's actually what we have we give....

op quit the ranting...... u should have simply offered her more cash.

no man gives to man but to God. pastores are Gods representatives, whenever you give in church God blesses you likewise. ps 35vs27 says He is God who rejoices over the prosperity of His children, again what a man sow that shall he reap Gal/6:7

OP have you heard of the widow's mite in the bible? it could be what she got at that moment. and you are not in God's mind to know if it was an insult to him or not.

You are the one looking at the appearance of the giver but God is looking at the heart and the motive of the giver which you can't really tell.

CrazyMan:
Good morning and happy sunday to you all.

I'm writing this piece to notify most christian youths of their giving attitude towards God. I remember last sunday when I went to church, when it was time for offering, the girl sitting close to me just removed N20 (yes you heard me right TWENTY NAIRA!) From her purse, inserted it into the envelope and dropped it in the offering basket.

Looking at this lady, her sophisticated dressing, her phone, the kind of perfume oozing out from her, then dropping N20 to her creator.

To me I saw that as an insult to God. It would have been better if she didn't give any offering at all than embarrassing God.

If you love someone and want to appreciate him/her, even if you lack the funds to do so at the moment, you'll still go beyond your limits to prove to that person that you really love him/her regardless of what it'll cost you.

Likewise God. If we say we love him (God), then we should prove it by the kind of offerings we give to him.

If you have a boss you want to appreciate for a promotion he gave to you, would you give him a gift of N20 or N50?

Or you're a final year student whom your HOD just waived a course for so you'll graduate with your mates, would you buy him a gift of N20?

You'll end up provoking him and make him regret offering you that help rather than being commended for the gift.

In 2Samuel 24:24 David said.

 And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the Lord my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.

So if a whole king like david refused to take a land offered free of charge by a law abiding citizen. How much more we who battle with foundational principalities and powers on daily basics, and still come out victorious. Thanks to the power in the name and blood of Jesus.

I want to charge us today that as we go to our various churches, we should appreciate God, if if we have nothing to thank him for, our being alive should be a testimony of his love towards us. So double your offerings by giving him something that cost you much and I'm sure that he in return would bless you abundantly.

Happy sunday to you all.

1. Who is God?
2. Who do you think Jesus came to save?
The answers to the above questions will best inform you about Who/How to give to God. Read: Matt.25:35-45. Note: Verses 40 & 45.

After salvation the other essence of Christianity is purely CHARITY. Which should be done to everyone. Read: Heb.13:2.

In conclusion, any act of selfless service, help, given, assistance in any form towards the betterment of anyone/humanity is given to God.

Trust me, some Pastors won't want you to know this.
Happy Sunday to you all, and a blissful new week!

I have been in that situation before all I had was my last N20 naira. I was looking dapper but my last N20 I gave.

Church expansion? Like private jets and fancy cars and mansions for the Pastors. He created everything yet needs your money for church expansion. How long would you people be gullible.

When has the pastor become ur god? The Almighty God does not need ur money. If u have money, take care of the needy. That's the real meaning of giving to God.

Well its true that most of our pastors are d spenders of the money, just drop your offering believing its for the work of God and leave God to deal with the pastor knowing you have played your part.


Lol.

U don't have any sense in ur head. Religion has taken away ur ability to reason independently.

You're a hypocrite! Instead of concentrating in Church, you were busy looking at what your neighbor was giving. Who made you judge?

pastors are not God's representative. they are matured Christians who are to groom converts to become pastors who will in turn groom new converts.

ur pastor is not your gods rep, leave ur church if u feel he is God's representative.
