Everything Belongs Creator God

Who has first given Me anything that I must repay him? Everything under heaven belongs to me. Job 41:11

The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; Psalm 24:1

Every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine. Psalm 50:10-11

The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. Leviticus 25:23

The silver is mine and the gold is mine,' declares the LORD Almighty. Hagai 2:8

Rom 14:8

"for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore whether we live or die we belong to the Lord.

Peace out, feeno

Well when you put it that way, a 10% tithe means you're getting away with 90% of God's stuff.

You're exactly right Ginx.

Except you have to give your tithe to a church, not God. The church didn't create anything. Doesn't seem fair.

The money that I give to my congregation goes for exactly the kinds of things that God tells us to do. Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, take care of orphans and widows and on and on.

"The silver is mine and the gold is mine,' declares the LORD Almighty."

I'm sure Ted haggard and all the other evangelical con men use this one a lot!

I've never gone to a health and wealth church, but I'm sure you're right.
