Is It Proper For A Church To Ask A Member The Source Of His Tithe? by bolaayenimo: 8:28am On Aug 02
A church member is jobless or has no verifiable source of income. But he pays in a hefty sum of amount into the church as his tithe (10 percent of income ).

Should a church ask him the source of money or just regard it as God's blessings?

The more they know the person is jobless, they have right to ask

My question is this: "how did they know he's jobless?

Any money(the profit you make daily) should be calculated at the end of the month, then 10% should be for tithe.

Asking is not Bad! The Spirit of God Can lead the Pastor to ask.

What is Important is that you Tell the People the Truth!
Preach to them that if the Source or Proceeds of your Money is from Evil, Fraudulent or Wicked acts, don't Give it to us!

Preach it Bodly in the Church !

That is the True Gospel that should be Preached! The Church needs Money , but not all Money is Acceptable...

You Can't Defraud People and Say you are paying tithe! That is Wickedness

You Can't Kill people to make Money and you say you Bring a Heavy Seed! That is Wickedness!!

You Can't push Drugs and Bring Prophetic Offering or Whatever! It's Evil! Its Abomination!

You Can't Rob People or Rob the Government and say you bring Tithe! That is Wickedness and Evil Money!

You Can't make Money from Prostitution or selling your body and bring Thanksgiving offering. That's Wickedness.. That's Abomination

Isaiah 1: 12-17
12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

Normally the church, probably the pastor overseeing the church can do that kind of deep research....


If only our pastors can do that, it will be better...
Rather than collecting tithes for every dick and Harry...

Thief go pay tithe
Olosho go do morning devotion after fuckinng the come pay tithe to climb altar again


God is really kind... If not sef, people like me for Don peme sef


Nobody shud quote mi ooo, I'm not feeling too well..

Yes...
If it is proper for a father to ask a child what he did to get a huge some of money found with him or her then it is very proper for a church or pastor to ask the source of an Abnormal tithe from someone u know cannot afford such...

The greed to build big cathedrals has made many pastors lots their function as spiritual fathers but now motivational speakers, professional beggers and tax collectors

I'm not sure if it's right or otherwise for the church to do that.

However, if our society was the type that questions people's source(s) of wealth, income and the money they throw around, our nation wouldn't be the money-crazed and corrupt cesspit it is today, and invariably, it would relieve the church of the burden of beaming the spotlight on you.

You can't be a barber and be paying 200k tithe!

²¹ For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

²² For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:

²³ That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.

He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

Jesus' words.

He is going to judge all works.

Do you belong to him?

Do you believe in him?

Do you know him? Do you obey his words?

Turn. Come to Jesus today.

You don't know what tomorrow brings....

The church should know so that they don't encourage people stealing to pay tithes.

It is proper to ask. But the problem is, those greedy pastors will never navigate through that Lane.

Yes, I know that the Deeper life Bible church must investigate your source of income, before they accept your tithe.

Yes. Especially with the way people bring unclean money to the house of God expecting to bribe God after killing, stealing or defrauding from others
Abhorrent politicians will bring stolen funds thinking God is man that can be bribed

How many people do you want to ask? Your best bet is to profile people that look like their source of income is illegal.

Yes I believe so. Or else what’s the benefit or good of paying illegal money to God. How does he really bless that.

Another question.

Can God bless a corrupt tithe?
