It is bad, it's better not to drop anything. But the congregation will keep looking at you like you committed a major crime if the basket passes you and u do nothing.

Well simply say they are returning d envelope to the rightful owner a(pastors)

Stop bordering about the irrelivant irreligious practices in today's Christian churches ...giving is a choice so if you don't have @that moment simply reflect the envelope. Ask for one when you have money to give no matter how small it's mundane.

No, especially if it doesn't come from your heart to give it you do not have. God loves a cheerful giver!
Re: Is It Bad To Drop An Empty Offering Envelope In Church? by simhosting: 9:03am On Nov 29, 2020

Don't collect envelop when you don't want to give.

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.

Without offerings and tithes, church business will go sour. Common Covid-19 pandemic halted and grounded churches until they realised they had been fooled.

No because the scripture says you should not appear in God present empty handed
The same portion of scripture stated you should gather in God's presence 3 times in a year. Abi you skipped that?
Re: Is It Bad To Drop An Empty Offering Envelope In Church? by blessedmoses68: 9:12am On Nov 29, 2020
Ignore the envelope
Re: Is It Bad To Drop An Empty Offering Envelope In Church? by TooMuchStuff: 9:12am On Nov 29, 2020
Wrong.
Don't do that....!
Anytime you are in God House as the People Gather, just imagine that you are in meeting with God and his Angels physically watching your move both within and outside your heart.
It's literally so.

Pride is the cause of dropping empty envelope in offering bags. Pride itself destroys your fellowship with God

That's the best there's nothing bad there.
Something I do every Sunday
Even the Bible is in full support of that in Matthew 8 vs 12.

12. Give thy church thee empty that was giveth to you so you can be open to the blessings of the world.

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.

No money to eat. No money to even go to church.
Re: Is It Bad To Drop An Empty Offering Envelope In Church? by cosse(m): 9:16am On Nov 29, 2020
Depends on the underlying conditions..if you do not have you can return the empty envelope.God sees the mind...
The argument that you shouldnt do it because you shouldn't come to Gods presence empty handed is a faulty one because not giving at all is the same as returning an empty envelope because they all resullt to the same end- not giving
In some instances also the envelopes are already placed on your chairs so you still have to return them empty.
Look it is all a matter of personal conviction..try your best to give....(at a time in my life i actually put my watch in the offering envelope cause i didnt have offering..one time it was an earpiece set..lol)...but if you dont have dont sweat over it God definitely understands.....
So my final "personal" answer......YES....you can!! ..as long as you really did not have ....its a matter of the heart...

If you don't have paper money to give as offering then give your self as offering and living sacrifice to God holy and acceptable...

Why collect the envelope when u know u don't have ?
Re: Is It Bad To Drop An Empty Offering Envelope In Church? by Seyzcham91(m): 9:20am On Nov 29, 2020
The Answer is simple! if there is money in your pocket at that monent you have that offering paper with you and you still chose not to put something inside thats a Sin i believe cuz it was deliberate!

But it you don't have, or maybe your last card in your pocket you can decide not to put anything in the paper, God will understand and Himself would not want you to Trek back Home! grin

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?

If I don't have money for offering no need collecting the envelope. Na God I dey give no be Pastor.





Why I go put myself under pressure?
Re: Is It Bad To Drop An Empty Offering Envelope In Church? by IsraelOA(m): 9:31am On Nov 29, 2020
It is so painful that people don't want to break loose from denominationalism... Be the Church, stop fooling yourself!

Denominational isn't the will of God for a perfect church, a place of strict rules, a place of DOs and DONTs, a place of formality, a place of structural organization is not the will of the Father.

The church is the fellowship of two or three believers, anywhere and anytime...

Stop obeying the Law of Moses and claiming to be a New testament believer.

I would rather not take the envelope than drop empty envelope, and if i already taken the envelope and walk to the front to drop my envelope i am going to leave it on the chair. Or walk past the offering basket without droping anything.
