Yaks!  That is so awful.:o  I feel sorry for people who allow themselves to be "bullied" this way.

Rene and Antiawan and Dave,

Thanks for your sympathy. Following is a little of our history, tongue in cheek.

We were supposed to tithe three times during our thirty years in WCG.
1st tithe to church outreach and feeding the flock.
2nd tithe for spending upon self or neighbors during seven Holy Day observances.
3rd tithe for widows and orphans extracted twice in seven years.

I confess that I was not "church" faithful very often.
My wife objected even though she was sympathetic to my pleadings.
So we got permission to view my income as half hers. (of course)
Her income as all hers. (she was not a baptized member)
Travel expenses to and from weekly services e.g car mileage deducted.
Later in those thirty years, I decided that my wife and I were just as capable of deciding who and which charities were deserving as the headquarters ministers were.
So from then on we sent in our excess out of our pocket money after paying for food for our four growing children.
We provided transportation for needy older folks, basketball teams, picnic outings, bible studies with refreshments at our home and so forth.
Conscience clear with reservations and regular prayer for forgiveness of our sins of ignorance or of selfish weakness.
The church had a full record of our contributions and the pastors, elders had access to same. No one ever complained.
Case closed.   ;D
Kindly, Indiana Bob

I wonder how many widows and others on fixed incomes were on that bulletin board?  The other thing I would wonder is why would anyone go to a 'church' like that and submit themselves to such cold, hard and uncaring 'leadership'?

I guess they "forgot" about Malachi 3:5:

And I will come near you to judgment. And I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those who extort from the hired laborer's wages, and turning away the widow, and the orphan, the alien, and not fearing Me, says Jehovah of Hosts.

But by the Grace of God, there go I...

In Him,
John

Gena, Antaiwan might of found a picture from your old church!

I can't say for sure cause I did drink the koolaid for a while but I'm leaning more towards I would have not let the door hit me in the buttocks on the way out of that one when they asked for my tax returns.  :)

 The old join trick ehh..would you have gotten a nice certificate or something like that for you "joining"? Funny how you can go to a church year after year and be fully involved but until you do some silly "join" thingie your not a "real" member??? What happens if you left the church after you joined? Do they get half? Oh wait..that's another join and get a certificate of authorization thingie.  ::)

When I was a teenager growing up in church. One Sunday morning our pastor told every one who
paid a tithe to stand up. My best friend and I proudly stood up. Never mind that we cussed, stole,
made fun of others, and all kinds of other evil; by golly we were tithers!
