Listen to Pat Robertson’s response to this person’s inquiry below
Melissa: “Our family is struggling financially. We cannot pay our mortgage and now it’s getting to the point to where our tithe to our church is taking away from paying our bills”
Pat: “The bible says, will a man rob God. If you really want a blessing, be faithful with your tithe”
Thanks for the wonderful advice Pat. From what i garnished, It’s OK, to rob your mortgage and utility company. And also, we don’t need to be faithful in paying our bills.
Why do believers feel it’s justifiable to neglect their debts in order to fulfill tithing. Since when is it pleasing to God that we perform one wrong (not paying bills) in order to do a good thing (tithing)? Should I lie, cheat, and steal, just so i can tithe as well? Is it OK to default on my loan so my Church can beef up their youth program? Look, i’m not saying that materialism isn’t part of the battle to be fought here, but at the moment, the decision is whether or not you defile God’s name to your debtors, or whether you should make your church happy. Hmmmm, that seems like a tough decision.
