Banking on God: The Church Finances Poll


This week at Cerulean Sanctum, I’ll be gathering polling info for a look at how American Christians view money issues, both personal and in the Church. Most polls will run for about six days. So please vote. After the polls close, I’ll offer the results and my commentary on the issues and answers related to the poll questions and results.

Thanks for participating!

(Note to those reading by RSS: to participate in this week’s polls, you’ll need to come to the site to vote. Thanks!)

As tough an issue as tithing and giving are for some, how our churches spend the money we give them may be even more difficult. Below are thirteen basic church finances questions. To vote, simply log your responses. This poll runs through 6:00 PM, Monday, March 3, 2008. A day or so after, I’ll tally the votes and post them with my commentary.














Thank you for your answers!


If you’ve not voted already, please vote on the following polls:

  1. “My church has a benevolence fund available to help members with financial needs.”

    I voted “true,” but the fund is effectively only available to those who need assistance with conference/retreat fees and church-run private school tuition. They call it a benevolence fund…

    Hey Dan,
    For 20 years I prayed over the offering at Williamsburg Pentecostal Church. I have studied the tithe, the offerings and sacrifices. I did participate in the first poll but I felt that the poll did not really address my convictions. I would be happy to share with you what I believe about giving, if you are interested.
    God Bless. Don
