In Topic: The Post That Will Not Stand Long Here (Tithing)

19 December 2013 - 08:55 PM

Yep, this is a touchy subject TGL.  If one takes the Bible as a whole, as we should, tithing 10% of our gross income is Biblical.  How are churches supposed to function without support from the saints?  Churches get no money from the government, PTL, so where is the money, to run these churches, supposed to come from?  Hmmm.  Some Christians pick and choose what they want, regarding the Word of God, and leave out the rest.  That is up to them.  I don't argue with Christians about tithing b/c it is between them and the Lord Jesus Christ.  We will have to answer to God for a whole lot at the Judgement Seat of Christ.  Tithing might be one of those things.  I don't know. 

I heard one preacher say one time that a person should tithe on their gross income. I have a question about that. This is in no way condemning candlelight for what she is doing. A portion of my income (which should get to be a larger portion all the time) is cost plus. That means when I spend a dollar on supplies or a sub contractor I collect $1.10. Now as time goes by I should get to the point that the majority of my income is the cost plus. Now lets say my gross income for a year is $100,000.00. My tithe for the year on my gross income would be $10,000.00. But it being earned on cost plus, my bills/payout would be around  $9080.00. So my total payout including the tithe would be $100,080.00. Just wondering is it correct that I should tithe on my gross income????

Did the 1200.00 just include the tear out and dehumidifier? Or did it include putting things back together? Such as coming back and putting the wood floor back down. 1200.00 sounds high if they are going to stop when they pick up the dehumidifier, but if they are putting the floor back together it sounds about right. Especially if he is like me and tries to include some of the might go wrongs in an estimate rather than have a bad surprise at the end for the customer. I just finished a cabinet job that I estimated between 10,000 and 11,000. The total ended up just shy of 9,000 and I had a very surprised but happy customer. Would much rather happy surprised than mad at the end of the day.

It seems to me that a Godly jew must have had a beard.

 

Lev 19:27  Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.

 

 

My wife is a Jew. Please don't tell her she has to have a beard.

 

correction, Jewish male!!! lol

In Topic: Pastor’S Salary Cap

21 August 2013 - 12:49 PM

That verse is not speaking of a salary.  Can't be, for we find the same word in the next chapter of the epistle:

1 Timothy 6:1 Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.

If honor in 1 Timothy 5 means salary, then you need to be consistent and pay your boss that you work for instead of him paying you.  Bet you wouldn't even consider that, would you?

actually 1 Tim 6:1 does not prove your point. As a servant (slave) under the yoke (of bondage(a slave)), everything that one might bring in as a salary would be his masters!!! Even as a worker, I have heard of men not liking it that the boss was making a profit off of their labor. But without the boss there would be no job/income for the worker. So that verse on its own does not define the word honor.
