Sunday Morning Stick Up What your Pastor doesn't want you to know about tithes A Must Read for anyone who pays 10% tithes or gives money to a Leader, Pastor, Charity, Non-Profit Organization or Church There is an undertow of frustration finely hidden beneath the delicate fabric of today's Christian experience. We call her Church, The Bride of Christ. Forlornly, she looks nothing like the church of yesterday. Conflicted in her existence and compromised in her expressions, she bears the name of the heavenly father, but oftentimes demonstrates the characteristics of His adversary. She hurts wounds and defrauds as many as who hope to receive healing and help from her hands. 2000 years ago, Jesus confronted her leaders and revealed two very significant observations as He stood in her courts armed with only a whip & passion. SUNDAY MORNING STICKUP, is that whip and passion of today. Jesus's Public Confrontation * Evaluation #1 - My house shall be called a house of prayer * Evaluation #2 - You have made it a den of thieves These accusations, once heralded by the savior in her sacred courts more than 2000 years ago, have manifested themselves into full blown, undeniable crimes committed in broad daylight. Worst of all, this stickup takes place like clockwork, primarily on Sunday mornings. Star struck, many have given in to larger than life personalities, and have cast aside the genuine leading of God's Spirit. She (the church) exhibits signs of swelling to the exorbitant totals of 10,000 to 30,000 plus members all gathered together in one place, but real growth escapes her. Her pews are filled with former members of other churches as opposed to newly converted sinners. Sunday Morning Stickup reveals that there are no scriptures that support Christians paying tithes. After embracing this scripturally guided tour through this important subject, you will realize, you do not have to feel guilty about not paying tithes. As modern ministry redefines herself throughout the world, focusing on souls has been replaced with a focus on $.O.U.L.$. ($atisfying Our Unrestrained Lust for $tuff). The term for this is Lasciviousness and can be found in St. Jude 1:4 For years, the preachers would tell us "You must give God your life." Today that message has been drowned out by "God wants you to be wealthy, but first, you must give Him your best offering." You have been told that paying tithes is of the utmost importance to being blessed by God. But ask yourself, "What do I really know about tithing?" As you ponder this thought, you are beginning to realize that many have talked about tithing, but no one has really ever taken the time to teach you specific truths about it. SUNDAY MORNING STICKUP will teach you these truths. After reading this book you will be able to answer the following questions: What is the true essence of tithing? Is tithing required? Am I cursed if I do not tithe? Does it really take millions of dollars to win souls to Christ? Is it ok for the Pastor to live lavishly while his members struggle with the decisions of paying bills vs. buying food? Is church "Big Business"? If my family is in need, do we qualify for assistance from our church? Is it ok to use my tithe to help those who are in need? LET YOUR JOURNEY TO FREEDOM BEGIN! Author, David Lee
