What Do Churches Use Tithe, Offerings, Vows, Etc, For? by Brock1: 4:26pm On Nov 04, 2018
My fellow Christians, kindly enlighten me on what churches use, tithe, vows, offerings and other thick prohectic offerings for.



And, should those money be used to build physical churches or to build the main church that Christ referred to as me n u (humanity)?

I realize that d best evangelism is not to only preach theories, but to tackle the root cause of suffering, by that u will gain more soul to d kingdom.

E. G whose religion will I follow :Preacher A, came to me and saw my condition that I am jobless, hungry and says it shall be well with u and went on his way.
Preacher B came and preached and guided me on how to get means of livelihood.

We preach love IN churches, after service u saw me walking, u zoomed of alone in ur car, Thunder fire u.

We ought to practice what we preach.

Tithes, offerings , Seeds in my place of Worship is used to fund Crusades, open new branches, send Ministers on Missionary journeys, etc

Prophetic offering is not mine business or your business.. that's the Ministers business..

I actually more concerned abt d less privileged, d 22.5% u set aside for d less privileged, is it to buy them food or to give them means of livelihood?

Without those offerings you mentioned, it will be rare for the gospel to be preached to all nations. The gospel is no bread and sardine. The church is there to mould man to be responsible, righteous and holy while the government is to create an enabling environment for business to strive.

You said most which means there are some that are not after money. If you are studying your bible very well, you would understand that what you see are signs of end time. Don't expect all churches to behave and think alike. Many are called few are chosen. When Yeshua comes, he will separate the sheep from the goat

Good one.
d roles of religious bodies are very paramount in any system, without them ,d rate of crime will be unbearable.
But in the case where government failed economically, not providing basic needs, should the church fold it's hands and allow it's member to wallow in poverty?

Poverty leads to so many sins, 87% of RUNS girls in Nigeria are Christians, 90% of ashewos IN brothels IN naija are Christians, etc all becos of money. All this ppl still go to church to listen to God's word. Hmmmm.

Enough of theoretical preachings IN churches, let's meet ppl at point of needs.
Some ppl are even at d verge of suicide becos of their economic situation .

I see church as a good place to allocate wealth, and give some level of balance in d society, but d leaders of the churches are so blind and deaf to dat, they are more concern about how they will attain personal flamboyant life , the likes of David Oyedepo, 2private jets each cost nothing less than 4billion naira. Private universities tuition now less than 500k, can d less privileged in d society attend that? Where is d balance d church is suppose to create? Are we not the true evil in d society, when we know what can proffer solution to problems, but we shy away from them.

Yes the government had failed but shouldering the responsibility on church is not a good idea. The church may assist which many are doing . There is no reason whatsoever would make a lady sell her body for money. There are many ladies hustling( legitimate work) to caretaker for themselves and families hence venturing into prostitution is absurd. In reference to David Oyedepo's wealth, he suffered and worked for it.He hustled to where he is today by the grace of God. If he depend on tithes and offerings to run covenant university by now the school would have be rated 125th in Nigeria. As for the private jets, he uses that most times when he needs to travel to different countries to minister. Probably he should be taxed for him so that government can generate revenue. In case you don't know, Winners Chapel offers scholarship to first class graduate of LFC. That alone they had contributed to humanity.

churches are not paths to God. They are designed for human manipulation right from the beginning. To make the society subservient to authority
