The word of god does state that we should give to Gods house. It is mentioned in the book of Malachi, about God saying that even if we give a tenth
of our earnings the windows of heaven will pour out a blessing our homes could not contain. But dont think that God needs money. It is only to feed
and clothe his diciples in the ministry. Also to maintain the church.
The bible says that the just shall live by faith. So ministers should not recieve a waged salary. They also should not pass around a small basket
amongst the congregation in order to collect money. This minister you saw was not preaching the Gospel of christ for I percieve that he does have a
spirit contrary to the Holy spirit.
In the Book of Revelations it says that God was pleased with the church of Ephesus because they had tried them which said they were apostles but were
not, and they found them liars.
The sad thing is, there is more ministers out there preaching a false doctrine than the true one.
