Bring It On-Line: Tithing and the Poor

Will Saints in the end times during the Millennium with glorified bodies really not be able to have children? I put ten percent of my income into the offering plate at church. I'm very faithful about that so it upsets me when I see someone ... Read Transcript


A VIEWER WRITES, "MY HUSBAND

IS TRANSITIONING OUT OF THE

ARMY AND GOING BACK TO

CIVILIAN LIFE.

WE HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR HIM

TO FIND A JOB AND HE HAS.

I'M PRAISING GOD BECAUSE HE

ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS.

BUT MY HUSBAND DOESN'T WANT

TO TAKE THE JOB BECAUSE IT

DOESN'T PAY ENOUGH TO WHAT

HIS MASTER'S DEGREE SAYS HE

SHOULD BE MAKING.

SHOULD HE HUMBLE HIMSELF?

I WANT TO BE SU SUBMISSIVE,

BUT I DON'T WANT TO MISS OUR

BLESSINGS, EITHER."

Pat: I THINK A MASTER'S

DEGREE IS WORTH VERY LITTLE

THESE DAYS, IN TERMS OF HARD

CURRENCY.

JOBS ARE HARD TO COME BY.

AND IF HE HAS A GOOD JOB

LINED UP, AND POSSIBLY HE

HAS A PENSION FROM HIS

MILITARY SERVICE, I WOULD

TAKE IT AND THEN BEGIN TO

WORK UP, AND GET SOME

SKILL.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT SKILL HE

HAS, BUT, QUOTE,"MASTER'S

DEGREE," DOESN'T GIVE YOU

THE SKILL YOU NECESSARILY

NEED.

WE GIVE MASTER'S DEGREES,

THERE ARE 23 OF THEM AT

REGENT, BUT IF I WERE YOUR

HUSBAND, I WOULD TAKE THE

JOB.

TAKE THE JOB AND LEARN SOME

SKILLS.

Wendy:

Wendy: ARLENE

WRITES, "MY HUSBAND AND I

HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR ALMOST

SIX YEARS, BUT WE'VE BEEN

TOGETHER FOR 10 YEARS.

AFTER HE GAVE HIS LIFE TO

JESUS AND WAS BAPTIZED, OUR

LIFE HAS BEEN HELL BECAUSE

HE HASN'T FULLY GIVEN HIS

LIFE OVER TO JESUS, AND HE

WATCHES PORN AND GOES ON

DATING SITES.

I DON'T WANT TO HAVE SEX

WITH HIM BECAUSE OF ALL OF

THIS.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

HER HUSBAND WATCHES PORN?

Pat: AND GOES ON DATING

SITES.

YOU MARRIED A RASCAL.

WHAT DID YOU THINK YOU WERE

GETTING?

DON'T YOU MAKE ANY EFFORT TO

DISCERN WHAT YOUR FUTURE

SPOUSE THINKS, WHAT HE IS?

I DON'T KNOW.

Wendy: SOME GUYS DO A

GOOD JOB OF FAKING IT UNTIL

THEY WALK DOWN THE AISLE.

Pat: YOU THINK THAT?

Wendy: I'VE HEARD

THAT.

I'VE NEVER WALKED DOWN THE

AISLE.

Pat: IN THIS CASE, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU DO.

MAYBE A TRIAL SEPARATION.

IT SOUNDS LIKE HE NEEDS

COUNSELLING.

HE NEEDS HELP.

WHAT IS WITH THE PORN

SITES?

WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM?

HE OBVIOUSLY HASN'T COME TO

JESUS.

HE NEEDS TO MEET THE LORD.

I BELIEVE I WOULD START

PRAYING TO THAT END,

POSSIBLY SOMETHING TO SHAKE

HIM OUT OF THAT.

BUT, QUOTE,"I DON'T WANT TO

HAVE SEX WITH HIM

BECAUSE" -- I DON'T KNOW.

Wendy: I'D TAKE A

HAMMER TO THAT COMPUTER.

Pat: YOU DON'T HAMMER

THE MAN'S COMPUTER.

Wendy: I'M JUST

KIDDING.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW WHAT

TO TELL YOU.

YOU MARRIED HIM.

YOU SAY, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

WELL, HE NEEDS COUNSELLING.

HE NEEDS TO FIND THE LORD.

I WOULD GET HIM IN SOME KIND

OF A CHURCH OR FELLOWSHIP,

WHERE AN OLDER MAN CAN DEAL

WITH HIM AND TALK TO HIM

ABOUT THE PROBLEMS.

HE OBVIOUSLY HAS SOME

PROBLEMS.

Wendy: GRACE

WRITES, "SAINTS IN THE END

TIMES DURING THE MILLENNIUM

WITH GLORIFIED BODIES REALLY

NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE

CHILDREN?"

Pat: DURING THE

MILLENNIUM, THEY'RE GOING TO

BE HUMANS, HERE ON EARTH.

IN HEAVEN, JESUS SAID THOSE

AT THE RESURRECTION ARE LIKE

THE ANGELS.

ANGELS DON'T HAVE SEX.

THEY LIVE FOREVER, SO THEY

DON'T REPRODUCE THEMSELVES.

THAT'S HEAVEN.

MILLENNIUM, LIFE ON EARTH OF

PEACE AND JOY, HUMAN BEINGS,

YES -- IN A MILLENNIUM, IF

IT IS THE WAY SOME PEOPLE

THINK IT IS, THEY'LL BE

MARRIED.

THEY'LL BE HUMAN BEINGS AND

LIVING NORMAL LIVES ON EARTH

WITH SOME PEACE.

THAT'S THE WAY IT WILL BE.

IN HEAVEN, NO MARRIAGE.

NO CHILDREN.

NO SEX.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

JADE WRITES, "I'VE NEVER

BEEN BAPTIZED, AND MY TWO

FRIENDS FROM DIFFERENT

CHURCHES BOTH BELIEVE IF I'M

NOT BAPTIZED BEFORE JESUS

RETURNS, I'LL NOT ONLY GO TO

HELL, BUT BE PUT INTO THE

LAKE OF FIRE.

ONE FRIEND SAYS I SHOULD BE

BAPTIZED AND SPEAK IN

TONGUES, AND THE OTHER SAYS

IT NEEDS TO BE IN THE NAME

OF THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY

GHOST.

WHO IS RIGHT?

AND WILL I REALLY NEVER SEE

HEAVEN IF I'M NOT

BAPTIZED?"

Pat: WHEN I BAPTIZE

PEOPLE, I BAPTIZE YOU IN THE

NAME OF THE FATHER, SON, AND

HOLY SPIRIT, IN JESUS'

NAME -- I SAY ALL OF IT SO

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY.

YOU'RE TAUGHT SOME SUPER

FUNDAMENTALIST THINGS THAT

AREN'T BIBLICAL.

IF YOU DON'T GET BAPTIZED IN

A SPECIAL FORMULA, YOU'RE

GOING TO HELL -- NO WAY.

IT IS FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST,

A SPIRITUAL TRANSACTION THAT

TAKES PLACE, AND THAT'S IT.

FROM THEN ON OUT, IF YOU

HAVE GIVEN YOUR HEART TO

HIM, YOU LIVE FOR HIM.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS, YOU WALK

WITH HIM.

WE WALK IN THE LIGHT, AS HE

IS THE LIGHT.

WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE

ANOTHER, AND THE BLOOD OF

JESUS CHRIST CONTINUALLY

CLEANSES US FROM SIN.

Wendy: RONALD

WRITES, "I PUT 10% OF MY

INCOME INTO THE OFFERING

PLATE AT CHURCH.

I'M VERY FAITHFUL ABOUT

THAT, SO IT UPSETS ME WHEN I

SEE SOMEONE HAN HANDLING OR

BEGGING AND I GET GRIEF FOR

PASSING THEM BY.

I GAVE TO GOD AT CHURCH.

ISN'T THAT ENOUGH?"

Pat: NO, IT ISN'T

ENOUGH.

YOU SEE POOR PEOPLE, AND YOU

HELP THEM.

YOU GIVE TITHES, AND THESE

ARE OFFERINGS.

YOU SEE A POOR PERSON, GIVE

TO THOSE WHO ASK OF YOU AND

SO FORTH.

IF YOU SEE SOME BUM OUT ON

THE STREET WHO IS A

PROFESSIONAL BEGGER, YOU

KNOW HOW TO FRUSTRATE HIS

INTENTION.

HE SAYS, WOULD YOU GIVE ME

SOME MONEY FOR FOOD.

YES, HERE IS AN RESTAURANT

ACROSS THE STREET, AND LET'S

GO AND I'LL BUY YOU LUNCH.

AND HE DOESN'T WANT LUNCH.

HE WANTS TO BUY BOOZE.

IN NEW YORK, IT USED TO BE,

I'VE GOT TO GET ACROSS THE

RIVER TO SEE MY FAMILY.

IT'S A BUNCH OF LIES.

THESE ARE PROFESSIONAL BUMS,

AND YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH

THEM.

BUT IF YOU CAN HELP THEM

ALONG THE WAY -- IF YOU SEE

SOMEBODY THAT IS POOR, YOU

GIVE TO THEM.

YOU GIVE TO THEM.

THE 10% IS THE MINIMUM,

MINIMUM.

ALL RIGHT.
