No Value in Lies

What “value” is in bowing to lies?

God said His holy tithe is agricultural; pastors preach that it is money. Are pastors more knowledgeable than God? Is the pastor’s word to be “valued” more than the word of God? or, do pastor’s now imitate the serpent in the Garden who said, “Yea, hath God said,…?”

Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

It is vain to for a pastor to worship the living God when that pastor teaches man-made commandments, telling his congregation that they are a God-ordained directive. God doesn’t accept that pastor’s worship.

Remember Jesus words in Matthew 7:21-23?

Matthew 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Pastors may think that teaching a command that is nowhere found in Scripture is doing a service for God,… however, it is not.

The monetary tithe requirement is extortion. It is ¹“The obtaining of property from another, with his consent, induced by wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear, or under color of official right.”

Pastor’s would do well to read 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, paying special attention to the part that says that extortioner’s will not inherit the Kingdom of God. They would do well to reflect on Revelation 21:8, which informs us that all liars will have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone.

There is no “value” in preaching lies.

Pastor’s have no right to preach the monetary tithe requirement. They are supposed to preach the word, (2 Timothy 4:2) not a doctrine that is totally foreign to, and contradicts, the word of God.

And the members of the congregation should be studying the word, (2 Timothy 2:15) if they truly love God and want to be approved of God as workmen that need not be ashamed. If they would take time to study the word, they will be less likely to fall prey to ravenous wolves leading them astray.
