JAHS

Church Approves Electronic Method To Submit Tithes And Other Charitable Donations

Recommended Posts

If I were LDS, I'd do it. One less time to have to pull out hand sanitizer.

I am a finnace clerk right now and I understand what you are saying.  Much less work for me at the end of the day too.

Ugh! Numbers are evil. Especially in physics.

I'm Finance Clerk as well.   Sounds like it will ultimately be a lot less work for us, but will probably require some additional training up front.  Now, when are they going to start sending a CC reader out with the deacons on Fast Sunday?   :acute:

I hope they will be able to credit individual missionary acounts or the "Other" accounts. From the screen shots it appears so.

Here's the official anouncement for electronic tithe paying:

How many here would be willing to use this electronic method?

 

 

I've been using it for a year or more. 

 

It was available upon request, just not widely advertised.

I'm a finance clerk, too!  What fun!  I don't see what additional training will be necessary, though.  I've been using a similar system (probably not identical to what they will be rolling out), and I get my donations receipts via email every month, and an end-of-year wrap-up.  It doesn't involve my ward finance clerk at all.

 

Oh, and by the way I'm the finance clerk of our stake single's branch, not of my ward.

So, will we still have to print out a report for Tithing Settlement in December, or will the member just print it out themselves from the email they receive?

The year end contribution statements and final tax statement can be printed out from the Ward computer or online from your home computer. Either way it will still need the Bishop signature.

Actually, my end of year statement as it comes from the church via email (in PDF format) has a signature embedded in it.  My bishop signs the version I get from him, so I have two documents signed by different church authorities.

I assume you are using the electronic procedure that has been available for many memebrs for quite a while now, right? 

Or are you one of the first to use the beta version of this new program?

This new program has a feature to print out tax statements on your own computer.

Yes, I've been using the previously available method.  I haven't been in on the beta test, though.

      Hello everyone and Happy Friday!

      I hope you are all doing well.

      I've been out of the country and traveling a lot, so I have been away for a good period of time.

      I recently read the article below and was shocked by the prophet's claim that tithing can break poverty cycles.

      https://www.deseretnews.com/article/900016023/dowry-is-not-the-lords-way-in-kenya-lds-president-nelson-says-tithing-breaks-poverty-cycle.html

      "President Nelson also said tithing can break cycles of poverty in poor nations and families."

      "'We preach tithing to the poor people of the world because the poor people of the world have had cycles of poverty, generation after generation," he said. "That same poverty continues from one generation to another, until people pay their tithing.'"

      IMO, giving up 10% of one's income actually causes more financial struggles for many in the world, especially in countries like Kenya. Moreover, it's important to mention that in Kenya "fourty two percent of its population of 44 million, live below the poverty line."

      https://www.unicef.org/kenya/overview_4616.html

      The belief that tithing will magically rid Kenya of poverty cycles and solve their financial struggles, IMO, is dishonest, out of touch with reality, and extremely misleading. Likewise, claiming that tithing will ensure "spiritual blessings" is one thing; however, asserting that poverty will continue until poor people pay their tithing (I think) is ridiculous and very naive about how many people live across the world.

      With "spiritual blessings/benefits" set aside (as some might believe), do you think President Nelson's comments were ill-informed or delusional about poor communities and poverty, as they relate directly to their day-to-day financial situations/burdens?

      I’ve seen the debate happening over at https://bycommonconsent.com/2018/06/02/tithing-and-coercion/ on whether the church’s stance on tithing is coercive. Let’s debate it (cause what else are we going to do?)!
      I don’t feel that tithing can be judged or seen as coercive except in some circumstances. For example, when a dad has a faith crisis and comes away believing differently than before there can be a certain feeling of coercion. If there are strong family ties to Mormonism, and if he values his own ties to Mormonism, he may feel pressured or even coerced to pay tithing in order to fully participate in family events like the baptisms and ordinations and other rites of passage involving his children.

      An article written by someone who seems to have a good handle of the financial picture of the Church, especially as it relates to the use of tithing.
      Where Do They Spend All the Tithing Money?
    • By JAHS
      For several years now there has been a way for members to pay offerings online, although it was meant to be limited for certain situations. Apparently there are wards that are now participating in a beta version of an online tithe paying service which everyone will be able to use if they want, just by going to the LDS.org website.

      Anyone else hear of this or know anyone participating? Anyone inclined to use such a service when it goes live?

      I think this is a great story...even if we don't encourage participating in the lottery.
