A Baptist church told a 92-year-old she is no longer allowed to worship there, because she hasn’t given enough donations nor paid her tithe. According to WALB, Josephine King has been a member of Bainbridge’s First African Baptist Church for more than 50 years. She is the first person to be removed for not tithing. Tithing is a donation, though some regard it as a tax, to a place of worship. Worshipers are expected to pay the church 1 percent of what they have as a tithe. King was “sick and a shut in” for several months, which is why she didn't attend church for a long period, her nephew, Gerald Simmons, told WALB. He said King has gone “above and beyond” for the church financially in the past.
The letter signed by Senior Pastor Derrick Mike said, “Josephine King is no longer considered a member of the First African Baptist Church of Bainbridge, Georgia.” The letter went on to explain she “has shown non-support” by not providing “constant and consistent financial and physical participation.” “She was stunned. She was disappointed. She was shocked,” Simmons said. “You shouldn't chase the individual's down,” he said. “You shouldn't do that. If that’s the case, you’re money hungry…. You have to have money to make these churches run, but it’s not about money. It’s about God. You have to put God first.

She shouldnt worry.

God says we should come to Him - FREE OF CHARGE.

You may have been removed from the physical church - but DO NOT DEPAIR - God still has you down as a child of His.

She appears to be a rich woman so why has she refused to pay her tithe? Is it not from tithe money that church is maintained? Abi na God go from Heaven send money to paint church, put AC, maintain instruments and buy chairs and others? Most people don't even know that organist, choir masters and others are paid. Abeg madam, pack well joor.

Judas was with Christ for most of his ministry and even though He knew Judas was stealing from the treasury instead of contributing to it and would eventually betray him, Jesus didn't sent him away.
