Then it says the first primary way to express " friendship " towards " Christ's brothers " is sharing in the preaching work. The second way they can help Christ's brothers ? ( Here it comes ) " By financially supporting the preaching work. Not that we can buy friendship with Jesus or Jehovah. Rather , by using our material assets to further kingdom interests , we prove our friendship and love , not just in word , but in " deed and truth" . We provide such financial support when we engage in preaching work, when we donate money toward the construction and maintenance of our meeting facilities, and contribute funds to the worldwide preaching work. "
Jesus said as you recieved freely give freely....Asking or making one feel obligated to donate is that christian. After all is it not the Wt that said they would never beg for money in any form. When that happens its time to fold.
All the magazines are being paid for plenty, the publisher pays for everything they pick up. Then they also give the donation from the door to door work in the contribution box.
Ok, so if you don't start getting your donations in people Jesus will be with held from you....
