Your Offering Does Not Take Away Your Suffering – Pastor Abel Damina
Pastor Abel Damina, the Senior Pastor and General Overseer of Power City International Church, has encouraged his members to always be careful of the kind of messages or teachings they listen to.
Pastor Damina said this during one of his recent bible teachings on the topic “Christian giving”. During the teaching, Dr. Damina warned his listeners against religious teachings that contradict the instructions from the bible. According to Pastor Damina, everything a Christian needs to know is in the holy bible. Therefore, one should always use the bible as reference material while listening to any preaching. According to him, any teaching which contradicts the revealed knowledge in the bible is fake or false teaching.
The pastor mentioned one of the most controversial issues which is ‘giving’ in the church. Pastor Damina, in his teaching, debunked the notion that the quantity of one’s offering can affect ones blessings from God. He also debunked the notion that offering in church can help avert a person’s ‘suffering in life’.
He stressed that God does not involve himself in any form of transactional blessings or deals with his children. According to him God blesses his children unconditionally, even with or without offerings.
“You should be careful of the kind of messages you listen to. This is because what you hear has a lot to do with the faith you build in your mind.”
“When it comes to giving in church, whether in form of offering or any other form, just rule out your mind from attracting blessings from God through the offerings you give because God does not enter into a transactional blessing with his children. Teachings like ‘Your offering takes away your suffering’ is a false teaching. Beware of them. Such statements are craftily coined by some of us on the pulpit, to play on the ignorance of our listeners.”
Dr Damina explained that the best way to give in church, as a christian, is to give cheerfully with love because ‘God loves a cheerful giver’.
“That you have give offerings in church doesn’t mean you can’t encounter difficult situations in your life.Those things are necessary. Your Offering cannot take away your suffering. What takes away your eternal suffering is your faith in Jesus Christ”.
Pastor Damina admonished his listeners that their faith should always be on Christ alone who is the author and finisher of faith.
