Mass Indoctrination Day 11. 25-10-2021.
Summary of what i learnt;
There are obligations and vows we need to keep up to, know matter how things are difficult or hard for us, we must fulfill such vows which we made, since it came out from our lips as vow unto God. We are to forgive those who owe us, it is an act of doing good and showing the teachings of our lord Jesus because it will provoke thanksgiving from them, thereby thanking God for his grace and mercy and we should also be thankful because this is the Will of God for us. Tithing is not a doctrine of Christ. Christ taugh us to give according to the purpose of our heart. So we should learn not to be stealing from people by teaching them about tithing instead we should teach the right doctrine about giving, for giving is voluntary without deception.
II CORINTHIANS 9:7
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 NIV:When you make a vow to God, do not delay to fulfill it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow. It is better not to make a vow than to make one and not fulfill it.
In church it's not a compulsory tax to what to pay or give into the house of God, it should be according to the good measures of your heart. That's to say, giving should be cheerfully, for God loves a cheerful giver, who give all he have from his heart. Its must be willingly. If contribution is to be made in church by individuals or organisation, its should be done without recognising the person or organisation because you are giving to God not to man. Don't forget always to do good works and offer sacrifices of praise and thanksgiving unto God, for he is our rewarder not man.
2 Corinthians 8:3 For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves;
NIV:Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Folks, in all that we will do in this life, let us always learn to acknowledge God in all situation we find our self. Praise God for the wonderful things that are yet to come and the ones that has come even in trials and in tribulation praise him. 1Thessolians 5:18
NIV:give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
“Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say".
If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.
Some of the things we can do willingly and are not supposed to be forced by our churches upon us are:
