Ed Young doesn’t understand the function and purpose of tithing. It isn’t to serve as little more than the purchase of a lottery ticket which God will add to and return to you upon your ‘investment’.
A Texas megachurch believes so much in the promise of God’s blessings that it’s offering a full refund to tithers who don’t experience it. Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas, has launched “The 90-Day Challenge,” which promises churchgoers, “that if you tithe for 90 days and God doesn’t hold true to his promise of blessings, we will refund 100% of your tithe,” the church said in a description of the event on its website.
Many the theologically ignorant buffoon will fall for the scam. But they need to be reminded that God isn’t your lottery ticket. And if you give, or tithe, with mercenary intentions, just keep your stinking money.
