Dear Nairalanders! What's your take on this?

Dropping empty offering envelops in Church, is it bad? I can say that, it is not a crime that you go to a place of worship on Sunday (Church) without offerings (money you drop in offering baskets).

Modern Churches now use branded envelops to take their offerings, once they give you, you must drop it....It is even written on it 'Do not take it home'. Some churches even go as far as giving more than one envelops (regular service, not on a Thanksgiving Sunday).

Nairalanders, if you worship in a Church that you dance forward to drop these offering envelops, and you are probably on a budget to give once or you don't even have at all. What would you do? Drop an empty envelop? Is this bad?

Giving should be voluntary even If you have, so you have the right to drop an empty envelope.

But whether it's right or wrong is a different matter, as it depends on a lot of factors like if you have, or if you're being led of the Spirit not to drop anything.

So there's no fixed answer to that question but it depends on the circumstance.

God bless.

You don't have to collect the envelope. I hope you know this.
You can politely wave your hand and smile at the same time (as if you are telling the person to wait) the person will understand.

You better drop money inside that envelope. undecided
Do you want to rob God? Don't you know that God is using that money to feed himself, his family members and all the angels in heaven? undecided
Do you want them to go hungry?

Thank you, that's what I just told him.

Carrying a Bible to church is empty handed? I'm asking.

If you don't have to give don't bother touching the envelope!
How do you feel when you do it? Good or bad? That answers your question...

That's cowardice..

I can't remember the last time i gave the church my offering money.. I usually sit back and press my phone when it's time for offering...

Y'all can give your pastors your money but me prefer giving it to beggars.

Looking at it from a pastor's view then you are their who refuses to pay God your debt so know it that you are owing God money...


But liking at it from a realistic and honest view



If you were receiving donations to your business and people drop empty envelope will you be happy?

If you won't help the pastor's business then don't collect the envelope

It's not bad. Dropping an empty envelope is because you probably don't have to give

I don't see anything bad there since u actually don't have. Even if u have and u refused to put anything its no ones business.. cos las las na u get ur money and no one can force u to part ways with it, even if its a kobo..

But at the end I believe Jesus will intervene.

Depending on your motive
If you do it because you really want to give but didn't have any dime to offer , you are just building a door for opportunity to knock,

Some people will be waiting for opportunity to knock on their doors while they didn't have any door yet,

To those who believed
No evidence is needed
To those who didn't believed
No evidence is enough grin

It is prolly based on personal conviction to me.

I for one can't remember the last time I did that.

I think if you don't have money for offering, you should decline to accepting the envelope.

The ushers may understand.

If someone gives you an empty envelope, will you like it

We are talking about the spiritual!!!

Think God! It's not by force to collect the envelope!!!
