Response to Voluntary contributions

 

Excerpt from:
Manual

For New Members

Of The

CHURCH

OF

CHRIST


Church of Christ
Iglesia ni Cristo
1989


...* Your contribution must be prepared in ad-
vance, so that during the collection you
may give it as a voluntary offering and not
as something forced on you. Do this act
with all your heart and soul.
....

About the offering. The offering or col-
lection being done in the Church of Christ is
not a rule created by the ministers but it is the
will of God. It should not, however, be given
like an alm for the poor.

Every member of the Church of Christ is
responsible to give offerings.

Do this with all your heart, willingly and
joyfully.

The offering must be saved and set aside.
Do not offer only when you have excess or
leftover.

As you budget your personal needs, be
more concerned about setting aside your of-
fering to God.

It is likewise the duty of the Church of
Christ members to do the act of thanksgiving
to God and to bring thanksgivng offerings
every end of the year.

We have to prepare our thanksgiving offer-
ring for one year. Be like many members of
the Church of Christ who save regularly
through the church's system. This is the
most convenient method, because without
realizing it, we are able to save.
