@segyemaro,

If you look carefully, my post was not about fighting Kunle for acknowledging my position; so please don't cheapen the discussion here by suggesting what it is not. If anything at all, here's why several people have stood against his attitude:

[list]

No one has tried to 'crucify' him for acknowledging anybody's position; but even before this thread, several people have cautioned him about his attitude. Did you fail to see that before trying to make out what it is not?

Please state one single lie i have lied in my writings against the preaching of tithes without your usual resort to quote me out of context.

On the issue of calling pastors fraudulent, we have been able to firmly establish that the type of tithing preached by pastors[compulsary 10% of one's income that must be paid to the church] has absolutely no sound christian scriptural basis. We have also been able to establish that the bible is twisted to justify this scam for the material benefit of those preaching it. What then do you call fraud? is it not when people or organizations are deceived into parting with their money? One thing is certain any pastor that preaches tithing as stated above is deceiving people to part with their money hence he is engaging in a fraudulent act and i have no qualms about calling a fraudster a fraudster even he claims to be a man of God or God sent him to collect the money on his behalf. i also resort to such strong language becos evil must be condenmed in all it's raminfications and i call a spade a spade[no point in dressing it up] using the strong language and condenming it outrightly i am expreesing to people just how grievious this evil is. People especially nigerians tolerate a lot of rubbish and just accept what comes to them and that is why they are taken advantage of.

A fraud is a fraud. You can say it nicely, or you can say any which way. Fraud remains fraud. Calling a pastor fraudulent or criminal is not necessarily hateful. It is either true or untrue. If it is untrue then it should be demonstrated to the person that said it that what he has said is untrue.

Love does not mean being indulgent of wrong-doing. In fact that would be quite contrary to love. Correction can seem harsh and unloving and it is only in the long term that the love that motivated it manifests.

the late derek prince said he always erred on the side of love and caution when being used to correct or rebuke a brethren because love never fails.

the hatred in most other threads callig pastors fraudulent , crminals etc borders on hatred dont you think?

God's spirit does not inspire hate and lies. I am yet to see any hatred or lies on this thread.

The fact is that there are "pastors" that are fraudulent and criminal --- and who use the "tithe" as part of their fraudulent activities i.e. "fleecing the flock". The fact that such "pastors" "spiritualise" the so-called "tithe" does not deter from the fact that they are being fraudulent.

In defense of the guy (whose name I will not mention) I believe that everyone has his calling in life. I believe that if everyone could just follow his calling no matter how small and leave others to follow their calling then in the end nothing will be left undone. There is so much injustice in the world, but I as an individual can feel moved to do something about underprivileged children. That doesn't mean I don't care for underprivileged adults but God has put it in me to alleviate the suffering of children. I'm sure that as he has given me my part he has inspired someone else to alleviate the suffering of poor adults. If that person just got on with it rather than point accusing fingers at me for only concentrating on children then work doesn't get left undone.

There are all sorts of extortion. If the spirit moves one to talk about tithes then leave him to do his little part. In the parable of the 3 servants and their talents did God not distributes the silver uneven and those that were faithful over the little things eventually God set them over greater things. Is this not so?

Those of us who care so much about all the other forms of extortion should get on our bikes and start doing something about them.

My guy, sorry for bringing your name up on the thread. I did it again but only because you complained just before I posted my last post and I didn't see yours.

First, I must apologise in specifically mentioning your name in my reply, if that made you feel bad. So many people have appealed, discussed, pointed out, reasoned and called out that accusations and slurring others should not be the point, but that we should rather discuss the subject. My mentioning your name was in response to Pastor AIO's post/observation (he mentioned you as well, though).

Tithers are not being "Molested", and it is unfortunate that this is where your efforts to discourage tithing has taken you to. You assume that any and all pastors/teachers who mention tithe must by default be a "criminally inspired so -called man of God", and no matter how many times other discussants have asked you to carefully consider what you're doing to yourself, your ego would not make you see reason. Since even you havve said that it is "perfectly okay" for Christians to tithe, who's deceiving who? If you feel good about feeling bad when your inconsistencies are now turning against you, perhaps you need to calm down and see reason.

From what I understand about Kunle's crusade (for want of a better term), his bone of contention is with the practice of extortion in the name of tithes.  Of course I cannot speak for the guy, but that is just my understanding of what he is saying.  

Okay this thread is not about whether or not one should tithe but rather about how one who has decided to tithe should go about it.  

I would imagine that the answer to the poster's inquiry would depend on whether his company was plc-ed or whether he owned it with a partner or whether he was a sole trader.  

I wonder . . . if he paid a percentage of the company's profits as tithe (hence robbing the shareholders or any other partners) and the company went into the red, could he go to church and ask the church to pay him 10% of his losses.

I would appreciate it if my name is left out of this topic as i am not the topic of this discussion. That apart my writings are not against tithers but against the criminally inspired so -called men of God who manipulate and twist scripture in deceiving them to tithe. As i have always said it is pity for those who tithe ignorantly becos they are not only constantly being robbed, they are also being Molested and made to feel good about it.

KunleOshob knows nothing about the personal lives of everyone who tithes. How does he know if tithers are not helping the poor? How does he know that? It is unfair for him to always and persistently accuse everyone who teaches about tithe in the manner he has been doing and using that as counter-arguments against the subject of tithe in itself. Discussions are less messy when people like him can stick to the subject and stop pointing accusing fingers at others unnecessarily.

How do we know whether or not KunleOshob goes out into the streets to help the poor? We know nothing of him but what he writes on nairaland so it would be unfair to use examples from his life (which we are obviously making up cos we know nothing of his life) as counter arguments. We should just respond to what he writes with words of our own. Discussions are less messy when people stick strictly to what they know and only that.

You still haven't stopped this your game of deception and leading people away from the grace of christ.

I don't know how meat that was written in malachi became money in today's churches. Classical example of scriptural manipulation / twisting of scriptures.

Goo too thee streete ande helpe thee poa. The new improved anti tithe motto, like they ever really help the poor.

Bring ye all the tithe into the store house, that there may be meat in my house, that's the unchanging Word of God, after that you can do the other. God and His people take PRIORITY above any other in a Christian's life.

Well said, Image123. Helping the poor does not denigrate giving in Church. Anti-tithers' favourite 'poetic hymn' of 'go to the street and help the poor' never translates into reality - they only sing it, but hardly do what they say.

As my sister pilgrim said earlier tithing is not to be done under compulsion so it is not compulsary to "pay" it to your church. If however out of you own free will decide to set a part a portion of your income to do God's work you can give it to any church that you genuinely believe would use it to glorify God or better still you can use it to better the life/lives of other human beings by using it to assist the less priviledged and God would reward you richly.

@Pilgrim.1

finally you are begining to make some sense on this topic.

@Poster

better still you can give it to the poor. Please note that as a christian you are not under compulsion to tithe so in effect you give tithes and NOT pay it.
