Ignite Fellowship Discusses “God and Money” this Saturday | August 6th

Published

 on

God and MoneyEverybody wants to be rich. But, the way the world operates, we’ve been led to believing the wrong things about money. For instance:

Is money the root of all evil?
Is it possible to be rich without being corrupt?
Is money the solution to all of life’s problems?
Is it really better to “cry in a limousine” than to be happy on a bicycle?
And what about the church?  Is it wrong for Christians to be rich? 

We get tired of pastors preaching about materialistic prosperity, even though we all want to be financially prosperous. Many of us have also been exposed to false prophets whose sole aim was to extort us of our money in the name of “giving sacrificially”.

To add to all this, life is becoming increasingly difficult. The cost of living is high. School fees are expensive. Food is expensive. Petrol is expensive. Rent is expensive. The dollar is high…

Somehow, we end up worrying way more about money than almost anything else in life. It distracts us from living out our God-given purposes, and even affects our choices when it comes to love, marriage and building lasting relationships with friends and families.

In all of this, we typically forget to ask God what His purpose for money is.

How does He want us to get wealth?
What does He want us to use it for?
How does He want us to view wealth?
Join us on Saturday, August, 6th 2016, as we talk about God and Money. 

Come with your questions, come with your concerns, come with your friends, and most of all, come with an open heart, ready to receive the wisdom that comes from God.

Topic: God and Money
Date: Saturday 6th of August, 2016
Time: 4-6PM Prompt!
Performing: BNG
Venue: Guiding Light Assembly, Layi Ajayi Bembe Street, Parkview Estate, Ikoyi.

(As usual, we will serve snacks and drinks after the meeting!)

Who is Ignite?
Ignite is the youth fellowship of Guiding Light Assembly (GLA). We are young Christians in the real world, following the Way, the Truth and the Life that Jesus patterned for us, in practical ways. We know it’s not always easy to seek first the Kingdom of God in the times we live in, and so we come together to fellowship, to encourage one another, and to strengthen one another on this Christian walk.

If you’re young (or young at heart), then the Ignite fellowship is for you! For more information, visit us on www.ignitegla.org and follow us on our Social Media pages:

    Interesting Topic ?

      Thank you for your comment. It is actually a discussion, where members of the audience can ask questions and even answer the questions as well. At the end the leader will round up. Hope to see you

      Thank you for your comment. We would have a short video approximately 5 minutes long on our youtube channel however it wouldn’t cover the two hour session at the fellowship

    Old Testament? Or New Testament? Tithe? Or No Tithe? That should be the discussion, you can’t pick and choose and pick again or eat your cake and have it. Let’s be honest to our Christian selves.

      Thank you for your comment. We would also be talking about tithe.

    Trust me or not, I definitely will love to be corrected: the day of the so called discussion will have the Pastor at the pulpit telling the congregation/audience/guest that money should be given back to the church, any money you make that is not given back to ENRICH them will mean your destruction, which is utter lies and deception. The topic for discussion should be about how pastors lavish the money of the congregation. The worship of material things is very very deep.

      Why don’t you get there and experience the event first, rather than jumping into conclusions? Sheesh.

      Thank you for your comment. Ignite is a youth movement. our fellowships are in the form of discussions. Nobody is preaching at anybody. We have a question and answer session where everyone is allowed to speak and even answer the questions. Afterwards the leader for the session rounds up the discussion.

    I may not be able to attend the seminar, but I have a question for discussion please. Is it true that tithe is every 3 years (the year of tithing) in accordance with Deut.26:12? If true, why is this not taught and emphasis is laid on monthly or weekly tithing?

    • Omilola Oshikoya

      Thank you for your comment. Tithe is 10% of your income. If your income is monthly then you pay monthly. It really depends on how often you receive income.
