Question: “How is the church supposed to keep its doors open if people don’t tithe?”
Answer: It amazes me how so many can’t figure out the simple fact that the church can run on voluntary, freewill, contributions.
Do the math folks…
If you give 10% as a voluntary, freewill contribution you will be giving the same amount you would have given if you were yielding to the monetary tithe requirement lie…
…only the voluntary, freewill contribtion is out of love instead of because of being lied to. The church would be getting no less from you.
Instead of yielding to the monetary tithe requirement lie and giving an extra offering of, say…7%, why can’t you give 17% as a voluntary, freewill contribution instead?
Why fight to keep the doors open to the church through money garnered by lies, when you can keep the doors open through money garnered out of love? A church built on lies is not in God’s will. God’s church is founded and operates on truth, not lies.
