It is scripture to give tithes because that is your sacrifice to God. I have seen preachers that take advantage of the congregation also but thats not my business because they have to answer to God on that. I pay my tithes me and my wife. We are truly blessed by doing that we have finances to help people out when they need it and we want for nothing praise God. He loves all of us. No matter what we do. Jesus says he with out sin cast the first stone. I surely can not through it but what I can do is try to replicate what jesus did. I know there is this image on pastors everywhere that they still from the church and live in these big houses but what people fail to realize is what they went through to get those houses. If God say it is so it is so and there is no body on the face of this earth that can do anything about it. Statistics do not matter when God is in the equation. That is how these pastors are able to live and be blessed. Keep the faith in God he knows what you want just give him what he wants and that is for you to trust him. God Bless.
Mr. Foodie24 I see that you are a wise guy and I refuse to entertain stupidity. God Bless.
CHET I see that you are a good writer and I am a member of Saint Johns Baptist Church and seen I believe to be you there in our Congregation. Know I understand who came to you with this story but the whole truth is not there. The parts of the story that were left out had a major impact on how events unfolded in the church. These people wanted Pastor Sutton to be a puppet to them like Pastor Proby never was. I respect Pastor Proby and what he has done but he is gone know. Pastor Sutton did not do what they wanted him to do but he did only what God wanted him to do. When a person is comfortable in their position ( like these people were) and know they are being told by another Pastor to do something different they get uncomfortable, then upset ,and rebellious. No matter what they do we still love the people who are slandering Pastor Suttons name you know why because Pastor advices us to do so. I understand that this makes a great story for the front page of the news paper but when the whole truth is not there I just have to comment. Oh Yeah I do not know why you sit there and try to quote our Pastor saying what he said in our service and manipulate it. Its ok though I know papers got to sell and money has to be made. God Bless CHET.
