Pastor Paula White Urges Followers to Sow ‘First Fruits’ Offering of Up to 1 Month’s Pay

News

Pastor Paula White has explained on her website that: “Each January, I put God first and honor Him with the first of our substance by sowing a first fruits offering of one month’s pay. That is a big sacrifice, but it is a seed for the harvest I am believing for in the coming year. And God always provides!”.

She is urging her followers to donate a “first fruits” offering of up to their entire salary for the month of January to enjoy “blessings” for the rest of the year or suffer the “consequences” of failing to follow God’s command. She further explained the difference between the tithe (usually 10 percent of earnings), to the first fruit donation.

According to the Orlando Sentinel “she told her congregants at the New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida: “The difference between tithe and first fruit, first fruit is all of it,” further elaborating “All of what? Well, if you want to bring God all of one day’s salary, one week’s salary or one month’s salary, that’s between you and God. … I try to bring a month’s salary, but at the very least every year I give God a week’s salary.”

And it is said many of her followers join her in the first fruits campaign with “miraculous” results.

    James Speed, I agree with you, woman should not have authority over man. However there are wives out here that have to be the spiritual leader in the home. Because the husband is unsaved. God did make Adam first. Your right he was not deceived. He took of the fruit with a willing heart. He knew full well what God said. The lust of the eye, started the whole thing. When Eve looked at it, I believe she had already lusted in her heart for it, so it was easy for her to be tempted. God told Adam, he should have instructed his wife. Eve blamed the serpent, Adam said this woman you gave me. But he was told directly from God. So death was upon all until Jesus came. Now we have a choice. I choose the gift of grace, from Jesus.

    Amen! Women are NOT permitted to have authority over a man. She is totally wrong to tell people this

    “I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.” 1st Tim 2:12-14

  • She is a con artist… a liar and false prophet…
