Church Giving Away Money To Get People To Come?

Recommended Posts

Dave

People should go to church because they love God and want to serve Him, not because they want to win money!

Ya know, one huge reason people give for not going to church is because of the alleged hypocrites there. They may think that these "hypocrites" only go to church to socialize or something like that. Well, what are such people gonna think when they hear about a church offering money to its members? That's just gonna give them more reason to persist in their self-righteous, judgmental attitude!

Please do not trust Pastor Tim Dyson. He is a classic smooth talker who took advantage of me when I attended his church in Tempe, Az back in the late 1980's. He is scandalous and a philanderer. I was vulnerable and he took advantage of me. I regret ever going to his church and trusting him. He knows who this is! I can only hope he has faced his demons and has changed. God help those who are his followers.

This is a very old tread.

 Jasjis is dead.  

That “church” is long since defunct, years ago.

Sorry if Tim Dyson has hurt you, thirty years ago.  Sometimes it’s up to you to let go of the past to heal.

  Kinda weird to dredge this old thread up from over ten years ago!

Jesus fed the 5000. Multiplication, I hope and pray he gets more money to give away, a hundred fold and turns into optimistic prime converting deceptacons on drugs and alcohol who have zero bank balance. :robot:

But i'm unsure the catholic church should do it from inside a church but I do hope and pray more priests have more grocery cards to give away and pray for each person that knocks on there door to collect one.

I honestly don't care as long as he isn't anti catholic and persecuting her in any manner.

Not Catholic

Nice tactic. Give away money for on night to gain converts who will give the church money on a regular basis.

Poor people can sometimes feel embarresed going to church. I think the christian formula is to help the poor, lonely, tired, weak of there community, not only with prayer but financially. And Christians can cry loafers and judge all they want but please just obey, the holy spirit will drive out the deceived and we can catastrophies all we want and throw the babies out with the bath water but its not right. I rekon there should be a third collection for the poor, widow and orphan in that parish because most don't really give a croutons, I'm poor and numerous in the parishes I've been know that and only 1 soul has offered me $20 out of the blue in 16 years, that's flippen dismal, and 2 guys that help if I ask 1 is also poor but the other isn't but still the other never calls me and asks if everything is ok, no one that has ever had my number which is at least 20 have ever called me actually for any reason. I really can only hope and pray this isn't a world wide thing, we are meant to be a parish community helping each other particularly the widow, orphan and poor, not just praying, miracles and casting out demons, I think Jesus' gunna be cross when he gets back.

I evangelise poor people outside of the church and help them with my limited funds. I'm not complaining I get by but not even a coffee from the majority of the masses. I'm all for paying the poor lol.
