Preachers receiving offerings has been around forever. We see Abraham paying tithes, Moses taking an offering so huge he had to stop them, & Nehemiah raising funds to build the temple to name a few. When Jesus needed to pay taxes he had a fish cough it up. We see Paul raising funds for famine relief of Christians in Jerusalem.
We all have fears from when we were kids. Some real, some imagined. Since then we have picked up a few more. What we must realize is that every fear has a “power source” that keeps it alive and real. Be sure to be at Journey this Sunday as expose the Boogie-man in the basement!
