    "Again...with all due respect, that's not biblical tithing unless you gave 10% of your cattle and crops to the tribe of Levi.

    What that is, is biblical New Testament giving; which is, what New Testament believers are told to do."

    I said I gave, you said I was giving😕  **I'm confused as to what you are refuting**

    Sorry to see ya leave. Door is always open for you. God Bless.

    That's giving.

    ...which New Testament Christians are supposed to do.

    Does God really need our money? His ministry will continue with your tithe or not, with a church building or not. Mans focus sometimes is on what he can see, and not in faith. If the Pastor knows how much you are tithing, this is sin. Because this brings favortizium.

    I understand and sort of agree with your point. With us being a church plant, I have no choice but to take care of the finances (hopefully one day turn it over to someone). I will say this, those that don't give take up a good majority of my time outside of the pulpit. For me, I'm not going decide where my time/energy goes based on who or how much one gives. 

  3. While I believe that repentance is necessary for salvation (not going to discuss that in this section), I don't think that the problem of millennials leaving the church is a pastor thing, but  Christians in general. We as Christians should be studying the Bible and know why we believe what we believe. It should be for every Christian, not just the pastor.

    I am always suspicious of stats and polls, simply because many of them, like this one, do not list the parameters that the information was gathered under........

    If they are stats of the general population of millennials in society it is not relevant.

    The poll was a simple poll that have stats about the generation that we call millennials. The polls parameters are simple, are millennials going to church? I believe the poll is relevant because of our command to preach the gospel to every creature. 

    In my opinion, millennials are not what society stereotypes them as, as they are a huge part of our church.
