I put the following two videos out for one reason: A lot of people are facing hard economical times. Those who aren’t, will. The church has been taught the FALSE doctrine of “tithing,” therefore giving their money to many false teachers/preachers helping them to live off the fat of the sheep, living extravagant lifestyles. No where in God’s Word are we taught such a thing.
“If you really want His blessing, be faithful with your tithe. And then you’ve got God as your financial partner and you have every reason to ask him for His blessing.”
Really? Where does the Word teach that? Jesus said, “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” — Luke 11:9,10 – I see no mention of Jesus saying anything about tithing. He simply said, ask, seek and knock. But so many today have been bewitched into superstition by greedy men. If you are a child of God, you have every right to ask Him for a blessing on your life. His blessing you is not contiguent on if you tithe or not.
“I don’t think you’re managing your money properly…..what can I cut back …am I living too big a house, have I bought too much car… I think you just need some financial help…”
What Robertson thinks is not important. What is important are you able to feed your family? Are you able to pay your bills? In the meantime it is ok for Robertson to have how many cars? How many houses, boats or planes?
Don’t get me wrong. I do not begrudge anyone who has wealth as long as they have earned it honestly and respectfully. But for a man like Robertson whose income comes from tithes, books and CD’s he may make on any number of subjects, then to expect YOU to continue to give to him or any other man while your family has to do without, is WRONG. Flat out wrong. Show me where preachers or ANY man should have that kind of priority in your life.
Then there is this little piece of lying manipulation.
But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. — 1 Timothy5:8 –
Pat Robertson causes men to become worse than an unbeliever. Men like him are stumbling blocks to those who are trying to do what is best for their family.
If anyone lets the likes of Pat Robertson or any other man put a yoke upon you by telling you you must give to them — especially while your family does without — then you have just let allowed yourself to become worse than an unbeliever.
