Robbery or Not?

October 7, 2012

Many people are operating on a “fixed income,” trust their leaders and believe in faith. Is it considered robbery when leaders drain the congregation of their last? Some leaders are living in large homes, wearing designer clothes, dinning at expensive restaurants and owning several automobiles while some “members of the body” are homeless, hungry and without.

 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions (Matt. 19:21-22).

There’s nothing wrong with blessings or favors from God. When God bless us, should we not bless others? If a person make a pledge and lose their job, should they not be relieved from their pledge obligations?

 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings (Malachi 3:8-9).

Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

When we turn our backs on the widows, the homeless, the needy and the hungry is the same as turning our backs on God.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me (Matt.25:40).

  1. Good blog as usual! It’s sad that these type of actions are present in the body of Christ.

    I have been exercising my faith in tithing and giving. I must say God is truly blessing me for be a blessing.
