Mass indoctrination day 11 20/09/2021
Lessons learnt from the teachings of brother Eli I learnt that When you make a vow you should repay it, because it is better you do not make a vow than to make a vow and not repay it God will be angry with you.
When you vow a vow to God, do not delay paying it, for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you vow. 5 It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.
The apostle paul made a vow during his time.
So Paul still remained a good while. Then he took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and Priscilla and Aquila were with him. He had his hair cut off at Cenchrea, for he had taken a vow.
It is clear from the bible that if you want something from God you can make a vow that you will fulfill,making a vow without redeeming it makes you foolish and God doesn't associate with such persons.
I also learnt that We are to give according to the decision of our heart. Giving 10 percent is a doctrine of the old testament in the new testament everyman is to give according to his heart.
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
Giving contribution should be according to your conscience. It is according to your heart desires not 10 percent of your income and this perphaps this is one of the most preached about doctrine over here in Nigeria,pastors make it seem like if you don't give that 10percent then you are cheating God,and God would never favour you
God loves a cheerful giver. Give according to your capacity even if you give above your capay it should be from your heart that is the doctrine of true Church.
For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they werewilling of themselves;
God will surely reward givers that do not do it for everyone to see, hypocrites that only want their actions justified by men will get their reward from me
Thank you brethren
