The following question is from

Why  do Christian pastors ask for money all the time?
 I mean they don't just ask for 10% tithes and and offerings.
They want money for books, cd's, auxiliary,  pastoral offering, keep us on the radio offering, the choir needs new robe offering, the pastor is visiting another church and he must give a offering offering.
And the list goes on. I understand it takes money to spread the gospel and don't have a problem giving, but it is getting out of hand.
One can give so much when on a fixed income.
Why can't the pastor get a side job and help out too?
I have invited people to church and have heard more a few times I can't afford to be a Christian you guys want to much money.
Seriously how do I handle this type of attitude when I fill the same at times. Thank you for your services and God bless you and your ministries.

Why do Christian pastors ask for money all the time?
The kids need to eat all the time.
Bills have to be paid all the time.
Less than 2% of church members tithe.

A country can tax.
The church (people) depends on and should should systematically tithe.

Yes there are some superstar-pastors traveling on jets.
More than 80% of pastors are bi-vocational.
I never hear these guys beg for money.

Where do you go to church?
If you have membership in a local church it is a member’s duty to support it.
I believe in the tithe and that it is a principal.
If members tithed there would be no crisis but abundance.

On preacher who was concerned about what people gave put it in print.

Mark 12:41-44  New King James Version (NKJV)
The Widow’s Two Mites

41 Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 42 Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans. 43 So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; 44 for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.”

Giving is important and part of a believer’s discipline.
We can join a church and not know the Lord.
Have you trusted the Lord to forgive your sins?
You will receive eternal life and peace with God and citizenship in Heaven.
He commissioned his followers.
Join a local church you trust and understand that they preach and share the gospel.

Support the church with your time in worship, talents and gifts.
