And the title, tonight, is "Does God Want Your Money?" Does God want your
money and the answer to that is an unequivocal no. God owns the whole world,
God doesn't need your money or mine. It's not your money that He wants but
it's you that He wants. It's not the tithe, but the tither. IT's not the gift,

The Bible says that God is the source and supply of all of our income. That's
where it all comes from. The Bible says the earth belongs to God, the Bible
says the gold and the silver is His. Now I know some of you say well I
