      I once kept books for a church where we had a member that ALWAYS put a designated purpose on the memo of his donation.   Once or twice he designated something that the elder board didn’t want, so they gave the check back.   As far as I know, he didn’t have any argument with the budget.  He was just a little odd that way.

      I enjoyed the tithe check comments. My years as a pastor cause me to remember math problems as an issue with tithe checks. People I knew well in church, that were making very good money, would drop off tithe checks for $10.00.  I really do believe that many Christians need a remedial math course so they can understand what “tithe” actually means.

      Mega church pastor commandments…

      <ol><li>I am the lord your Benjamins, who brought you out of the land of high schools, out of the house of poverty; you shall have no other currency before me. You shall not make for yourself a genuine faith, whether in the form of anything that is in scripture, or that is in tradition, or that is from a pontiff.</li>

      <li>You shall not mock the Benjamins.</li>

      <li>Remember the offering, and keep it all.</li>

      <li> For six days you shall pretend to labour and make everyone else do all your work. But the seventh day is a collection day to the Lord your Benjamins; you shall collect once, twice, nay even three times per service.</li>

      <li>Honor your father and your mother and sons and daughters and their spouses with exceedingly high pay, so that your possessions may be great.</li>

        <li>You shall not murder, blackmailing, however, is OK.</li>

        <li> You shall not commit adultery with other currencies, nor fail to collect as often as possible.</li>

        <li> You shall not steal in a way that you get caught</li>

        <li> You shall not bear false witness against the Benjamins, you shall bear false witness to gain as many Benjamins as you can.</li>

      <li>You shall not covet your neighbour’s house; you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbour. Instead, you shall covet the offering, take as much as you wish and buy those things so others may covet you.</li></ol>
