dadde :

I Disagree with your thought towards me and Abuzola dear,I insist you're Wrong. . . dont tell me you never know SATAN has certainly been the best friend the church has ever had, as he has kept it in business all these years. The false doctrine of Hell and the Devil has allowed the Protestant and Catholic Churches to flourish far too long. Without a devil to point their fingers at, religionists of the right hand path would have nothing with which to threaten their followers. "Satan leads you to temptation"; "Satan is the prince of evil"; "Satan is vicious, cruel, brutal," they warn. "If you give in to the temptations of the devil, you will surely suffer eternal damnation and roast in Hell."

@abuzola & ogaga, i think u guys make more sence wen u re quiet.

what all xtian folks shld know is that, so many con artists have infiltrated the church. We need to b vigilant and publicly speak against this vice in the house of the lord. If u find yourself in any church that is always asking for one seed or the other, pls relocate in the intrest of personal security.

@all muslim, when some swindle people to fund chaos and terorism,such a person is a sinner just like the con pastors.

Peace

Church financial accountability and monitoring happens only in europe where christianity is almost becoming a relic of the past. . .but it is not the same in the USA. . . .

In the west they've got a charity commission that monitors the finances of churches and NGO's to make sure money isn't used inappropriately by theiving pastors. Matthew Ashimolowo would testify to that. . . .

Used for buy private jet for sending message across nation, the jet helps to save time in terms of traveling.

Used for medical treatment since we lack good hospital here, when it comes to some serious case which required abroad attention.

Used for broadcasting in the television and as well to all media stations; radio, and sending evangelist to far places which have not heard of Christ and possibly do not experience the type of clivization we have here.

Used for helping the refuges.

Thank you for your reasoning. remain blessed.

Monies taken in the Church are used to run the affairs of the Church. The Church is also an institution that isnt void of administration. Hence the issue of money comes in.

@recognisd- In your village is that how to tell people to fast ?

'if you want to fast do not fast like the hypocrite' how is it equal to 'i prescribe/order/command you to fast' huh ?

What you said is Tantamount to

'if you want to steal, do not steal like the hypocrite but rather steal intelligently, so that you won't be caught', does that means i ask or command you to steal ? Is just an advise on if you want to fast/steal.

You see, i know it doesn't exist in the bible thats why i brought up the challenge. Davidylnd tried to forged lie in the earlier discourse we had. Let me give you a second chance: clearly show us the verse that says 'fasting is prescribed on christian'

Abuzola has had that lecture before, he will simply move to another thread and regurgitate the same "question" as if he's being sincere. Its hard to change a mind that has been warped by the devil.

My church uses the money to arrange meetings and religious seminars. Church money is also used to help the poor at times. the money is also used to support a evangelist and the pastor of the church. there may be other religious uses for instance, buying musical instrument for the church etc.

Part of the money collected in the churches are used for the propagation of the gospel of Christ. e.g. for printing of tracts, magazines, purchasing of Bibles for some new members etc. Other part are used for Church Upkeep/maintenance. . .such as house rents, nepa bills, payment of salary to some part time workers/full time workers in the church, for purchase of certain equipments needed in the church as well, e.g Generators, Piano, Sound systems etc.

I wouldn't know if this really help your curiosity. . . . .Regards

Kunle,

   yes we see those specific examples of where the church finance went to but in no way does it suggest this was the only place & way it was meant to be spent. I also don't see it as a matter of which is the 'primary' goal, but moreso every need should be examined and then the finances meted out accordingly.

  If a small church's pastor had a great need in his family and was in dire circumstances, should the church skip over him and go ahead and assign the finance to the food bank for that week because feeding the poor is the primary goal? of course not. The scriptures also say "do not muzzle the oxen while it feeds".

The church's mission is to serve the saints, serve the community and advance the kingdom of God by actively preaching the gospel all over the world and making disciples. If the church finances are spent in such a manner that supports & advances these goals then it is biblical and it is fine.

Acts 4:32-35:

32 All the believers were united in heart and mind. And they felt that what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had. 33 The apostles testified powerfully to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and God’s great blessing was upon them all. 34 There were no needy people among them, because those who owned land or houses would sell them 35 and bring the money to the apostles[b] to give to those in need.[/b]

2 Corinthians 9:7-9:

7 You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 8 And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 9 As the Scriptures say,

  “They share freely and give generously to the poor.

     Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”

in addittion to what the lady has written,church members who the pastorate and the church in general know as bonafide members are assisted financially,mostly on the down low to discourage everyone bringing frivolous requests for money,money is given to guest ministers,in the case of redeemed a percentage has to be remited to the headquarters either in nigeria or abroad,they also support dif charities mostly in their localities

I'm just speaking off the top of my head here, but these monies are used for church expenses ie paying bills used in the upkeep of the church, its paid workers (which sometimes includes the preachers), helping the needy etc. Maintenance and the running of the House of God costs big money, and there are usually means of checks and balances so the issue of embezzlement and misuse of funds rarely arises. But I'll leave the question for the experts ton tackle properly.

Well it depends on the church. Some send it up to God in heaven hence their need of private jets to personally deliver it.
