Pat Robertson to 80-year-old who can’t pay bills: Keep tithing, get a job, sell your stuff on eBay

Televangelist Pat Robertson told an 80-year-old woman with money problems to keep giving to God, even if it means she must get a job and start selling her belongings on eBay.

Earlier this week Robertson responded to a letter written by an 80-year-old viewer on his television program The 700 Club. The following is an excerpt from that letter:

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?

 

Robertson responded by telling the 80-year-old woman with financial trouble to find a job or sell personal items online rather than stop contributing her 10 percent weekly tithe.

Robertson told the elderly woman to “ask God to show you some ways of making money.” Robertson explained:

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

The televangelist continued:

“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.”
