Now let me understand this correctly. You are telling people they can leave your ministry, but their tithes have to stay, because you included them in your budget for the next three years?
You are telling them that they have to tell their new leader, that they can’t support them financial, because they will always be obligated and in covenant with your ministry?
Then you tell them they are going to be cursed if they ever stop sowing?
The new dumb in ministry has just begun!
Preachers are telling people that they don’t have to come to church. They don’t have to be accountable, they just have to give their tithes and offerings.
So what they are truly saying is, “I will take your money, but I don’t want you!”
Now you can have an internet church without having physical involvement with the people or the leader. No relationship involvement, no interaction, no personal contact. Now, not only are people being hurt in the church, but now they are doing internet spiritual abuse!
The people don’t want to be involved or committed to The LORD, they just want to be able to say they heard some preaching.
It saddens my heart to see how truly we are disconnected, not wanting to walk in unity and togetherness among each other.
Now those who are bedridden or incapable of coming into the sanctuary to worship together with others in the Body of Christ, being able to see the service through internet is a great asset. But now the preachers are using what is a good tool, to increase their greedy ways.
The souls men and women of God is more important than the money.
If we stop looking at the Body of Christ as a cash cow or ATM machine, we will see a greater increase of deliverance, healing, salvation, miracles, signs and wonders!
