"Let me make this simple. We are at the end times. God is getting ready for a massive revival. That's going to take big bucks. Who do think he wants to fund this revival through? What does that mean about your banking account? Would you like to have God's wallet? Then you have to have God's heart. The word "give" in one form or another is found over 1276 times in the bible. Any questions?
Rev. 3:15 "I know thy works."
I don't know about you but that last line sounds a bit like a threat to me, "Tithe or else...God is going to get you!" To be fair some of the article was covered in grace. They said if you can only afford to tithe 3.76 % (that's taken directly from the article in case you're wondering) God will still bless you (what a relief!)
I think the first thing that worried me about this way of thinking is that it once again puts us in a position where we have to do something to earn God's favour/blessing/love or whatever Christianese word you want to give it. Whatever happened to unmerited favour? Whatever happened to God loving/blessing/favouring us just because he thinks we're the coolest thing he ever created?
Secondly, when did we start thinking that God needs something from us to do anything? Let alone, God needing our "big bucks" to make a massive revival happen...how small have we made God that he needs a bit of paper with a man or animal or building printed on it to do something in the world? I somehow don't think God needs tiny-small-invisible-me to bankroll his revival.
Thirdly, I already have God's wallet (and he has mine!) Everything I have is from him, belongs to him and needs to be given back to him.
