What is your business with what men give to God .Are you God? What anyone gives is between him and His God. If your are one of all these greedy pastors, you should come out straight. Nonsense

The op is still a learner.

Or a beneficiary of tithes & offerings. grin cheesy

OP is very funny & inconsiderate sombarry.

In a country with high youth unemployment, or poorly paid entry level jobs. He wants a bigger chunk of their money.

The other day, youths in one church were asked to pay 10k for a few days visit to one pastors hometown. Transport to & fro less than 1.5k.

Most of the youths unemployed, under-employed or on low wages.

One unemployed youth unable to pay was lamenting. SMH. shocked

what are u saying? Thats acting lame. Someone is scamming you in the name of God and u can't ask questions, yet in ur prayers u will ask God to prove himself. Ask your pastors to give account of expenditure is a church not a personal investment. You need to know where ur money goes. And know this, pastors used to live in churches, no More! Now they live in estates and castles. Ask me why?? Cos, ppl like you enrich them with so much luxury that they don't no what else to do with it. God requires service not money. No one gave Jesus money
I'm not encouraging anyone to enrich his or her pastor and be a pauper. If your pastor can't give account of church expenditures, please question him. It's because we have made our pastors seem like demigod that's why they look unquestionable. In conclusion, seek for the truth.

A pastor is an indication of whether there's a God in a religion, in this case Christianity.

I will quit such church.

It's even bad enough to quit d religion.

Re: Why Do Most Youths Give God Peanuts? by Coldfeets: 6:35pm On Nov 08, 2015
God(pastors) is man, that's why. grin

But on a more serious note, for those of us who don't want to give simply because they think they are making the pastors rich, I seriously think y'all should reconsider. This is because there is a law of nature which states that givers shall receive.

Why do you think they say GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER?

Of course, once you FREELY give straight from the bottom of your heart, you unconsciously trigger this law. But if you hold on tight to you paltry sum, you won't even receive anything in the end.

Look at people like Bill Gates. Why do you think they are always giving alms and donating to charity? Of course, they already know about this law and they are always triggering it to work in their favour for them.

So give it a try. As from today, start giving. Give to pastors. Give to your relations. Give to your friends. Give to people you know. Give to people you don't know. In short, give to everybody who needs it. Remember, it's not only money that you can give.

One more thing, always give because you want to give and not because you feel you are compelled to give and you will see the miracle start working in your life.

And finally finally, please don't ever BORROW to give.

It is well.

You took the words right out of my mouth! The God we serve is not interested in material things! What shall it profit a man to put N1m offering in church every Sunday but still goes out and continues to live a worthless life. At the end of the day, it's our heart and private good deeds that matter most. God will be happier to see us help a poor neighbor with that money instead. Our mentality is so poor that these pastors are banking on their church members. You see pastors these days buying private jet while more than half of his congregation are living in acute poverty. Some things don't make sense!

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.

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!

You are indeed crazy as your name goes. It is also very likely that you are fronting for some pastors. The best offering to God is that given by you directly to those in need.

You do not need a pastor to help you give your offering to the needy, except you so chose.

Lastly nothing should concern you with what an individual chose to give out. Learn to mind your own business.
Re: Why Do Most Youths Give God Peanuts? by Nobody: 11:07pm On Nov 08, 2015
Op, it's either you are a pastor agitating for your own private jet or you are simply showcasing your stupidity! Which God de collect the money, and how? If I may ask, why do so called Christians quote the old testament when it has to do with illegal collections of cash to the benefits of the pastors and others in position of authorities in the churches but if it's morals, they at least have the common sense to quote the new testament which is the beginning and the end of Christianity?! Didn't christ tell us that all the things of old are gone and all have become new in his name and doctrine? And Jesus only mentioned the widow's mite, not enough for a private jet?! Carry your scam go hunt houses with it!

Pathetic.

Jesus shud have told dem to help solve corruption, unemployment and insurgency. That's OUR problem n not spreading of the gospel.
When the gospel has sunk deep into the hearts of people, those evils you mentioned would be reduced.

The problem why corruption, killings...etc thrives in Nigeria today is because we place self before every other thing. We fail to keep the greatest commandment which is "LOVE" when you love someone, you wouldn't tie a bomb around yourself to blow him off, you wouldn't cheat him in a business, you wouldn't refuse to assist him get a job if you have the means... Only hatred brings such attitude.
