    A test?


    I wonder if Jesus knew about this test?

    Matthew 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

    Because you quote Matthew 23:27, it's supposed to apply to me? Where is your evidence? Before you get involved next time, make sure you do your research.

    I asked what you thought would be appropriate.

    I understand the church shouldn’t tell them to tithe or what to give.

    That is not the question.

    I can make it simpler: if you were in that situation, what do you suppose would be appropriate for you?
    Whatever I feel like giving would be appropriate for me. If I want to donate $5.00, $50.00 or $5000.00, the decision is mine and mine alone. There isn't another person on this planet who can, or should, make that decision for me.

    I was using Jesus' words as an example of how your TEST falls short.

    Jesus sounded quite "rude and accusatory" in that verse. He flunked your TEST.

    Where is your evidence? Before you get involved next time, make sure you do your research.
    Who made you my daddy? I'll get involved whenever I feel like it.

    And, I don't need to do research to see how dumb your "test" is.

    My 'test' reference was facetious. And Jesus was NEVER rude or accusatory. Prior to your reference to Matthew, you were not involved in the discussion, so how about dropping the attitude.

    I give to five ministries. Of course I support my local church. It does a great work for the kingdom of God.

    What do you give to?
