Get Out Of Here: Pastor Guarantees A Full Refund Of Tithes If God Does Not Keep His Promise???


How in the world, can we with our limited thinking ever think that God is unable to keep his promise? I know that, we are all accustomed to promises in one form or another. We are also accustomed to seeing promising made and then broken. Anyone who has lived for a number of years as I have, would certainly never lay claim to having kept every promise made. There are many reasons why this is true. Sometimes we forget, sometimes we are negligent, and sometimes it may be due to circumstances beyond our control. But to challenge God on His promises is something totally different. 

Anyhow, according to the internet, Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas, led by Pastor Ed Young, has launched a 90-Day Challenge, encouraging members of the multi-campus Megachurch to put God to the test by "bringing (their) tithes and offerings to the House."


In part, of the sermon series titled “The Tipping Point." Pastor Ed   attempts to persuade church members to bring their tithes to the storehouse of the Lord, so that he will pour out upon them countless blessings, as stated in Malachi.  I listed below some of the promises of God in Scripture. The "GIMMICKS" that's being used by this celebrity pastor is not even mention:
1) God has promised to supply every need we have.
2) God has promised that His grace is sufficient for us.
3) God has promised that His children will not be overtaken with temptation.
4) God has promised us victory over death.
5) God has promised that all things work together for good to those who love and serve Him faithfully.
6) God has promised that those who believe in Jesus and are baptized for the forgiveness of sins will be saved.
7) God has promised His people eternal life.
People, "GIMMICKS" are guaranteed to take our money, they are not gospel. Our cult of celebrity pastors and churches is out of control. This totally misses the point. God is not a god of transactions. This is not "testing" - this is a mockery and reducing God to a bank. It's basically the prosperity gospel in disguise. SHAME!

  1. Please the pastor trying to prove God is faithful to His word. Why don't people stop being so judgemental toward Ed Young. Ed Young has grown his church to great lengths.

  2. I. Just. Can't. This is beyond ridiculous. Tithing is from the heart, for the Lord. It's like people are treating God like a slot machine. The tithe is for the Lord and His work. Who is a man to say, essentially, if you give this money for God and God doesn't bless you within this--man-made--time frame, then you deserve a refund. Or how about "God, I'm going to give you this tithe money because You said that if I do, you will bless me. BUT, if I don't get that blessing within 90 days, I'm taking my money back!". Yeah, that'll work.

  3. Tithing is an act of worship. Worship is never about us. This verse has been taken out of context more than once before and I'm sure it will continue to be.... I wonder how they define 'blessing'? So sad...\

    Perfect example of tempting God. Really bad idea and is most likely just a disguise for trying to boost tithes which are historically low during the summer months. It's appalling what Churches will do to increase tithes in the name of doing God's Will. House of Thieves

  5. Tithing to get rich
    Tithing to be blessed
    Tithing to avoid a curse
    Tithing or get a full refund.

    What happened to tithing to Help people less fortunate REGARDLESS of any type of reward here on earth. Because he already did enough on the cross?

    2. I just remembering some things about Ed (big money) Young.

      Isn't this the same pastor that asked for social security# and routing numbers from his members?

      Isn't this the same pastor that said Christianity is ALL ABOUT THE MONEY?

      Isn't this the same pastor that told members to leave if they didn't tithe?

      Isn't this the same pastor that is trying to do his own reality show?

    3. Yes , this is the same Pastor who is a Pastor in name only. Anybody can call themselves a Pastor now days. Having growth and a congregation doesn't mean that your a Man of God. Jim Jones had a growing congregation too. Weeds grow in the garden right along side of the beautiful plants and flowers. I doesn't take a discerning eye to tell a Rose from a Dandelion.Time will reveal who these pulpit perpetrators really are. What`s inside will come out. What ever they make the issue then that is what they are about. I wouldn't follow him around the corner. I doubt very seriously if he is distributing those Tithes to the widow, the fatherless and the poor as the Old Testament instructs. God will bless his people whether they pay Tithes or not. As long as we give according to the New Testaments instructions we have nothing to fear. Ask yourself, Where in the New Testament did Jesus pay any Tithes ? As many times as the scriptures record Jesus in the Temple, teaching, observing, healing and rebuking , there is not one single mention of him paying Tithes. Jesus never included it in the Sermon on The Mount, nor did he tell Peter about how the Church would be built upon "This Rock".... and the Tithes. You wont find it recorded in scripture in the New Testament anywhere, period. He is our example ! Its not even recorded where Jesus took up an offering after he finished ministering to the multitudes. He didn't take , He gave ! People stop being intimidated by flesh and blood. Read/study the Word then apply it to your own life. Give and it shall be given, set it in your heart what you will give. Honor God, seek him, love, share , repent obey, and live a clean life. Support your local church. Your in HIS hands not man`s.

  7. Grow the church ministry, souls will fly.
    Grow the church building, souls will stagnate.
    Money does not grow ministry. The Spirit does.
    The Spirit is beyond the building, doing miracles with what souls cheerfully offer.
    It is folly to test the will of God through something as abstract as money.

    This seems like a cash-in system to me. A way to milk the parishioners of as much as they can get. Businesses do this kind of thing all of the time. They offer guaranteed refunds if you’re not satisfied, but they know that most people aren't going to bother putting in the effort of obtaining a refund for one reason or another. The end result is lots of money for the business.

    These mega-churches are nothing more than businesses, in my opinion. I don’t trust them and I never have.

  9. It's not about challenging God, but rather challenging people to tithe.
