Are Churches pressuring their members to donate 10% or more of their income to the Church Who is benefiting? Why do we need to pay 10 % of our salary to a church, which have no social responsibility to the local communities? Churches run on charitable status and so therefore do not pay any tax yet demand and accumulate 10% of its member’s salaries tax-free. The question is why do the churches demand the 10% if they give nothing away to the Government or the local community? Should the paying of tithe be optional or compulsory this is debatable? With the recession and the rising unemployment rate should churches play an active role in getting engaged in social responsibilities? Many church families are going hungry to save some money to pay their tithe and satisfy their Ministers and church members. The question is what are churches actively doing to review hardship among families among them and measure to reduce any stress? Or do churches get involved in developmental issues? Currently, many churches hardly contribute to local development for example, routine general cleaning of communities before or after church to keep communities clean and tidy. The spreading the word of God and life of our Lord does not equate to looting and amassing church wealth or does it? This would encourage congregants who struggle to pay their tithe to know the there are the strategic objective of their church. Why are churches investing in even building more churches? Churches have often preyed on people’s emotionally vulnerability in times of real need.
