When Tithing is a Demand

A 92-year-old woman’s been kicked out of her of church after 50-years. Josephine King received a letter from the First African Baptist Church in Bainbridge, Georgia, saying she couldn’t attend because she wasn’t tithing.

The letter, signed by Senior Pastor Derrick Mike, says King can’t “participate in any engagements (or) worship opportunities” because of “non-support…in the areas of financial and physical participation.”

King’s been sick for several months, which is why she didn’t go to church or tithe. So much for compassion.

Perhaps Pastor Mike needs a lesson from a ‘strategically placed’ burning bush.
