Imagine for a moment that you’re retired and 80-years-old. Also imagine that your limited income is used to pay your bills and 10 percent of your money goes to tithing to the church. Now imagine that you need to fix your vehicle and you have medical needs that require you to spend extra. What would you sacrifice?

Well, according to master con artist Pat Robertson, you should either get back to work or sell your possessions, but under no circumstances should you stop putting money in his pockets.

During his Thursday 700 Club program, Robertson received a question from an 80-year-old supporter which read:

My husband and I are in our 80s and have been tithing for many years. We both love the Lord and give willingly and our tithe is over 10 percent…but we never have an extra penny after our monthly bills are paid. Our old car just broke down and we had to borrow money to fix it. We both need dental work, but we can’t afford it. I constantly have to use our credit card to pay for medical needs… What could we be doing wrong?

In response, Robertson suggested they sell their belongings on eBay or go back to work. He also told them that God would grant them a blessing if they asked for one. The one thing he didn’t tell them is to give a little less of their income to church so that they can take care of themselves.

“There are many ways of making money, even at 80-years-old,” Robertson said.

You know, you can get on the telephone, people are hiring. There are all kinds of things you can do. For example, you may have a bunch of junk lying around in your garage that you can sell on eBay, and get some money that way. There are many, many ways of making money, and you’re looking at the downside of all the bills you’ve got instead of saying, ‘God, I’ve been faithful to you. Now, I claim my blessing, and I ask you to open the windows of heaven and pour me out a blessing. Show me what you’re going to do, show me how I can move into blessing.’ So, just ask him.

It’s not like Pat Robertson hasn’t told people to keep sending money to church despite their financial struggles before. Prior to this incidence, he told an elderly couple with health problems that they should continue to tithe even though they live on a small income. He even once told a woman to keep tithing despite her struggle to keep her kids fed. And he’s told a viewer to keep giving him money, even if it meant risking destitution or not having money to pay the bills. As Robertson said at the time, “It’s just $20 a month. And if all of us do it together, it gets to be millions and millions and millions of dollars!” Yeah, millions for him.

This elderly couple, and many other people like them, are being told by Robertson to keep handing money to the church despite the needs they may have. It’s morally wrong to tell financially struggling people to continue tithing instead of using that money to keep themselves in good health or to improve their transportation needs, or to keep a roof over their heads. The right thing to do here is to advise people to give a little less for awhile until they can actually afford to tithe the percentage they’re used to again. But as usual, Pat Robertson proves that he’s a greedy con man who doesn’t give a damn about the needs of anyone who is struggling as long as they continue to fill his pockets with the gold that undoubtedly will sink him straight to hell.
