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.
God bless you.

To every one saying that the money goes to the pastor, don't give shit
But if you give, give in accordance to the way God has blessed you and stop double standards

@op leave them that claim I2know,no wonder some will live up to their 50s without no achievement upon all the penny wisdom they claim... have anyone wonder why the givers are getting more blessed and richer....no wonder the bible says in Proverbs that some give and get river while some hold more than is right and it still leads to property....fools perish in their folly
what a foolish statement. so giving out your hard earned money to pastors guarantees that u will be a great achiever. so many people are making it and will still continue making it without giving a penny or offering to a any lazy pastor.

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.

U r beautiful! smiley

Yes its going to the pastor, but the pastor is working for God.

In luke 10:7 Jesus said

And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

What does the word "eating and drinking" mean...I'll explain.

Most pastors work full time which means their survival depends on the tithes and offerings.

Others are posted to remote villages to preach the gospel with little or nothing given to them for survival. How do you expect them to cope if you have the intention of giving N10 offering?

During Jesus stay on earth, despite the fact that he never worked, it was recorded that he had a tax collector, a tax collector can be interpreted to as an accountant. So its safe to conclude that Jesus had an account.

Question is who were funding the account, it was simply his followers who were touched by his message...that's how his ministry was able to survive. Cos people were bringing in offerings, donations...etc.

When we become stingy to God's work, we're simply hindering the flow of the gospel. When you give N10 to God's servant and expect him to run the church and his family with it, don't complain when you're being owed 3-8months salary in your place of work cos you brought it upon yourself.

Jesus instructed us to spread the gospel far across the ends of the earth.

So that's exactly what they're doing...they're simply obeying God's instructions.

My brothers and sisters, it is high time we differentiate between religion and christianity. I think you are talking from the angle of religion, how far has your religion taken you. Religion is where your fellow human being makes you to understand that as a man of God or pastor you can only get to heaven through him/her or his/her church. Like you rightly indicated, religion takes,promising prosperity at end. Christianity is doing the way Christ wants us to do according to the scriptures. In summary of this,Christianity is simply living a christ-like life. Remember God looks at the heart which is your character and attitude towards your fellow human being and not what you give as an offering or what you wear to church. Christianity gives as it is written in the bible 'Ask and it shall be given to you' and does not concentrate with what amount of offering you give. Do not judge for not be judged. I rest my case! Shalom
1000 likes for u.My thoughts exactly!Many people go to church just to warm seats,like the op.If not,I don't see how he would have been able to assess the financial worth of the lady giving 20 naira offering.The service of God has been dragged in mud by so called "pastors".On sunday,I sit at home..read my bible and pray.Because many of the pastors out there are just scam artists who went into ministry to earn a living.Its not about going to church 7 days a week,its all about your personal relationship with God.Which is very cheap to achieve if you ask me..Buy a bible of 200 naira and read it daily.Let it be your Pastor,your mummy G.O and daddy G.O.I have an uncle who has never stepped foot in a church.He is very successful because he is a radical giver.Those he helps are always blessing him.He pays the fees of most children in his area,gives fowls and rice to the poor in his neighbourhood.That's christianity IMO,not enriching a pastor.At the end they will use your offering to build fancy schools that even the church members won't be able to afford the fees for their kids.Nigerians idolize pastors and it is downright annoying!You are the best prophet over your life,the earlier we realize that the better o.The prayers the pastor prays for u is nothing special.You can do that for yourself if you are serious about knowing God.

Re: Why Do Most Youths Give God Peanuts? by harsysky(m): 1:59pm On Nov 08, 2015
Op, in as much as I respect your views, you should be mindful of people you tell that. Look at it this way : the man at the temple saw the other asking God for forgiveness ,and he said that he thanked God he was not that sinner for he pays his tithes, pray etc. I think you have done the same thing that man at the temple did.

That the lady you made mention sprayed a perfume and put ten naira does not mean she owns the perfume. Jesus says we shouldn't judge ,perhaps, because there are many things attached to why someone must have done something bad.

Next time , when you wanna talk about how to give, don't use someone as an example. It's very very very very bad!

Whom are you referring to as God in this matter


I hope you are not one of those sponsored on nairaland to deceive the youth

If the church need any help they are to pray and trust God for provision which will come thru brethren not openly demanding money in the form of offering and tithe which we all no are thing of the old...

As a christian you most put you trust in God not in peoples pocket, you can only get peanut if you device your on way as the church does today thru offering and tithe.

who will succeed in life, will surely succeed in life with or without the blessings of any pastor. God blesses all, its left for you to take the right step, towards achieving your goal. stop pastor*worshiping wink God is not a man!!!

I understood your perspective of criticisms, or questioning, however, having read all that our fellow users have written, I will have u also focus on ur perfect example Jesus Christ, who having seen all the offering of the wealthy and have-nots commended only that of a widow which was the least but the giver gave from her all... Heart + gratitude and most importantly her All... The point here is "God doesn't see as Men see" so don't fault anyone, or access people based on their outlook... God looks inwards... God bless her for giving... It's the willingness that counts.
