Nazarene Space

Folks I cannot say this strongly enough, we are contending with the enemy on all fronts over here, and frankly it can feel kind of lonely. We depend on your financial support. Donations have recently been picking up but we are still playing catch up from going in the hole the first two months of this year.

Bills are coming due and right now we just do not have the funds to cover them. 

We must raise at least another $450 by Friday just in order to pay impending utility bills and avoid shut off.  

We really need our supporters to step up to the plate this week.

To make a donation, go to http://www.nazarenespace.com, click on the Pay Pal box and give whatever you can afford. (You can also donate directly thru PayPal by sending paypal donations to donations@wnae.org . You can also mail donations to

You know it seems whenever I post a fundraiser someone either posts or emails me telling me I should get a job.

So for the record:

1. I have a job, I have been laboring in the Word (1Tim. 5:17-18; 1Cor. 9:6-14) for most of the past 15 years.

2. Yes Paul had a secular job, he was a saddle maker not a tent maker ("Tent maker" is a mistranslation of the Aramaic) He also stated plainly that he did not have to have a secular job and that he and others who "labor in the word" have a right to expect to be supported by the community with the same support as those who labored in the Temple (the tithe) (1Tim. 5:17-18; 1Cor. 9:6-14).

3.  I had secular employment at one time and had to leave it years ago when my wife became disabled so I could care for her and our children.

4.  For those who prefer to tithe to widows and orphans (A) That is actually the third tithe (http://nazarenespace.com/page/the-tithe-of-yhwh) not the first tithe and (B) I am an orphan.

5.  Yes the tithe is for all generations forever and yes it is payable on non agricultural income. (http://nazarenespace.com/page/the-tithe-of-yhwh)

6.  The tithe belongs to YHWH (Lev. 27:30), is payable to those who labor in the word (1Tim. 5:17-18; 1Cor. 9:6-14), and the laborer is worthy of his wage (1Tim. 5:17-18; Mt. 10:10). How many of you have to ask for your paycheck, and when you do your employer accuses you of begging and suggests that you should get a second job and stop asking for a paycheck?

7.  Of those who criticize our fundrasing, how many are actually tithing anywhere?  If they are not tithing and they criticize fundrasing isn't that the spiritual equivalent of asking teachers to make bricks without straw?

Dear James

Our community in Belgium would like to encourage you to continue doing the great job you are doing, and not let yourself be intimidated or saddened, because this is what the yetser hara wants.
