Life Pointe Church Sunday Morning Tossed Salad

Misfortune Cookie

– This morning I attended the Peking campus of Life Pointe Church.
– We had Chinese Restaurant music playing in the background.
– We served crunchy noodles and hot tea at our Peking Cafe.
– Kelly D. hosted during the first service.
– Maybe some day I can host a service.
Lead Pastor Travis J. returned with normal lips.
– The godliness of good people rescues them;
– The ambition of treacherous people traps them.
The love of money is the root of all evil.
– Don’t let your money master you.
– Master your money.
– Lord, let me honour You first !
– What good does it do to gain the whole world but to lose our souls ?
– Our tithes and offerings are NOT payment for services rendered.
– They are NOT our dues necessary to belong to a church family.
– God created us with a purpose.
– We should give to the Kingdom – on purpose.
– We should give the very best of who we are.
– True humility and fear of the Lord lead to riches, honor, and long Life.
– Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you.

This week’s message was based on the following Scriptures out of the Good News:  Deuteronomy 14:23, Galatians 6:9, Hebrews 13:5, James 4:8, Luke 16:11, Malachi 3:10, Proverbs 3:9-10, Proverbs 11:6, Proverbs 13:11, Proverbs 21:5, Proverbs 22:4, Proverbs 23:23, Proverbs 27:23-24, Psalm 37:5, Psalm 37:21, Romans 7:17-20.

NEXT WEEK I won’t be at the Homestead campus of Life Pointe Church. I’ll be out-of-town on the left coast of Florida attending a church service outside in a park in Naples. The night before that I’ll be at a church in Lehigh Acres attending a rock concert hosted by Casey W. and headlined by Manic Drive. Nearly 33 months ago I attended a rock concert sponsored by The Call, hosted by Casey, and headlined by Manic Drive – at the original Life Pointe Church building in Homestead. The very next morning I went to church for the first time in over 30 years.

    Use God’s Word to define “tithe” and not a secular dictionary! Using a complete Bible concordance you will discover that the definition used by tithe-advocates is wrong. In God’s Word “tithe” does not stand alone. Although money existed before tithing, the source of God’s “tithe” over 1500 years was never money. It was the “tithe of food.” True biblical tithes were always only food from the farms and herds of only Israelites who only lived inside God’s Holy Land, the national boundary of Israel. No tithes were accepted from defiled pagan lands. The “increase” was gathered from what God miraculously produced and not from man’s craft or ability.

    There are 16 verses from 11 chapters and 8 books from Leviticus 27 to Luke 11 which describe the contents of the tithe. And the contents never (I repeat), never included money, silver, gold or anything other than food from inside Israel! Yet the incorrect definition of “tithe” is the greatest error being preached about tithing today! (See Lev. 27:30, 32; Num. 18:27-28; Deut. 12:17; 14:22-23; 26:12; 2 Chron. 31:5-6; Neh. 10:37; 13:5; Mal. 3:10-11; Matt. 23:23; Luke 11: 42).
