A reader asks a question that’s on a lot of people’s minds:
I wonder if tithing is a good idea when your church is doing dumb stuff. I have a hard time with giving money when I dont agree with what’s going on
It’s not a good idea, but you should tell them your reason for stopping and also put it in writing for them to discuss among each other. E-mail would be best.
Yea that’s a good idea. I have a hard time with never doing communion
Same. It’s important to note that the times are not ordinary. Normally I’d tell you to continue regardless of mere disagreements, because that’s the place of a layperson. However, we cannot ignore that the seminaries have been weaponized against us in the culture war and the would-be shepherds are, in the best case, themselves sheep without shepherds. In the worst case, they are wolves in shepherds’ clothing.
