Would you like to explain this a bit further? I don't understand what you are trying to say.

Re: Bro Epley's Racine Apostolic Church Camp Meeti

Tight budgets and rainy day money help churches survive tough times. Sometimes, the choices are tough. Not using the church copy machine can save a church 200 per month in ink cartridges. But seniors sure like their Sunday bulletin.

Tight budgets are never fun. But they do help a church focus on priorities.

Scott, I have a question for you or anyone else who wants to give their opinion. When a member gives money in the plate, regardless if itís tithes or offerings, or whatever itís called.

Did the church give the money?

Or did the church receive the money?

Please take your time and think it over.

Re: Bro Epley's Racine Apostolic Church Camp Meeti

I would say the church counted and deposited the money.

Individual members of the body donated to the corporate body. Sorta like Americans paying taxes to America.

A better analogy would be....Mary gives me my petty cash every week. Did she give it to me, or to our marriage ?

Iíd say you answered your own question. ďMary gives me my petty cash every week.Ē It seems to me that you agree with me. Mary gave the petty cash to you. I donít see where itís a better analogy though.

Now try again. A member of the Church, puts money in the plate on Sunday.

Did the Church receive money?

Or did the Church give money?

The church receives the money.

If it goes to a missionary, the church is giving the money.

So . . .

You are saying that the Church didnít give the money.

You are saying that the Church received the money.

Iím pretty sure youíve got that backwards. But a lot of people do. I believe you are confused about who the real Church is.

Would someone else like to give their opinion?

The layman gives the money to the clergy.
