THE BIBLICAL PATTERN FOR DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS [PODCAST]

Todd Tomasella: Taking Today’s Local Churches to Task – Looking at how wealth was distributed among the earliest followers of Jesus.

Acts 2:44-45 KJV

Todd Tomasella

YES, ALL BELIEVERS ARE COMMANDED AND GIVEN THE PRIVILEGE AND OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE – BUT TO GIVE TO THE CAUSES OF THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND NOT TO CHRIST’S WOLVES!

Collections? Yes! But “FOR” WHOOOOO?

“Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.” 1 Corinthians 16:1-2

WHO were the collections “FOR”? – “concerning the collection FOR THE SAINTS.”

“And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had a need.” Acts 2:44-45

“Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had a need.” Acts 4:34-35

“Make merchandise of you” simply means you are a dollar sign to them.

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies (false doctrine will send you to hell), even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise ($) of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation (hell) slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:1-3

 YES, ALL BELIEVERS ARE COMMANDED AND GIVEN THE PRIVILEGE AND OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE – BUT TO GIVE TO THE CAUSES OF THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND NOT TO CHRIST’S WOLVES!

These greed-grubbers are the tool through which Satan is robbing the body of Christ. How should the wealth, collections be distributed? (1 Corinthians 16:1-2) Here it is – “And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had a need.” Acts 4:35 …. THIS is how the true body of Christ operates. Most building based “churches” today are set up in rebellion. This isn’t happening due to the large salaries and all the money it takes to run the modern church stages shows.
