Dodging The Issue
11. Excuse Eleven: “I would pay the tithe if all the rest of the Church would.” Do you keep the laws of the land because others do it, or do you keep it because it is right to do so? Gangsters rob men but you rob God and man. Is a thing right or wrong because others do it? Does God wait for all the church to tithe before he holds any member responsible? Suppose one waits till all get saved before he seeks the Lord. There are always two groups in every church: those who carry their part and more of the load; and those who lie down on the job and do nothing, — to which class do you belong? Others may be waiting for you to tithe. Set the right example for them.
