Chapter 12 in my book, Close Your Church for Good, is called “Pass on the Offering Plate.”
In this chapter, we look at some of the issue of tithes and offerings in the church, and whether the practice is truly biblical or not, and what alternative ways there might be for churches to obtain funding for their various ministries.
Please note that due to some of the feedback I receive on these posts, this chapter might be radically revised for the final edition of the book. These changes will only be available in the print or eBook version when it comes out.
