Report says tithing, church spending hit record low
Tithing to mainline Protestant churches as a percentage of income is at its lowest level in at least 41 years, according to a new report, and churches are keeping a greater share of those donations for their own needs.

Parishioners gave about 2.38 percent of their income to their church, according to ‚ÄúThe State of Church Giving through 2009,‚ÄĚ a new report being released Friday (Oct. 14) by Empty Tomb inc., a Christian research agency in Champaign, Ill.

If more church leaders preached

___ the mightly gospel of Christ, the Cross, the Shed Blood, Biblical Doctrine in the power of the Spirit so understood and so felt that it set men on fire for God instead of tickling the ears of the goats who come only to play church perhaps giving wouldn't be any problem at all.

Of course for such preaching the men who would stand behind the pulpits might just have to first do some giving of themselves to fervant prayer, seeking God and holiness.

If more church leaders preached New Testament generosity rather than Old Testament tithing, which was more like 23%, not 10%, then giving would be increased. It would no longer be a check mark in a box of one more thing to do. Giving would flow from a generous and cheerful heart. Church leaders do a disservice by preaching on tithing, according to author and family wealthy counselor EJ 'Jay' Link.
