If I didn’t get blessed for keeping the commandments then why do it?
Because I want eternal life.]]>
Um, I don’t know, for helping other people be happy or for other wholly selfless reasons?]]>
This bugs me. If a person wants to pay more than 10%, by all means do it, but don’t lump it all into tithing. Take the overage and apply it to fast offerings, BofM publication, perpetual education, etc. etc. Putting it all in tithing doesn’t make much sense. Sure, put the 10% there, but beyond that, allocate to something else. Cchrissyy is right, I think.
That’s my two Lincolns.]]>
any more you’d like to give is not a tithe. It’s not a tenth. It’s an offering. Pick a fund, any fund, and give!
But if you are financially blessed, maybe it wasn’t for your generocity. Maybe it was for your temple attendance or your chastity! Or if you ask me, the Lord sends you extra money to test what you do about it. do you go “wow, all mine, thanks!” or “what a repsonsibility- who should I bless with this?”]]>
And Joseph Smith said Obedience is the first law of heaven. He’s the one that started a lot of the LDS folk doctrine.]]>
And who says “obedience is the first law of heaven”? Isn’t that a folk doctrine?]]>
