While tithing should be something people who attend church want to do, it shouldn’t be a requirement for being a member. There is a church in Elk River that believes that members should donate a certain amount of money. If they don’t donate this money, then they are considered sinners. This is a church that has pastors who urge members to marry each other and to live their lives for God. Some would think that if you go to church, then this is likely how you want to live anyway, but telling someone they can’t attend because they don’t give the money the church needs is ridiculous. It’s not how God wants people to live life. He wants people to love Him and give what they can to Him. It’s no wonder to the guys at Boraie Development LLC here are people who are turning away from organized religion if all churches have views that are like this.
