Are church fundraisers unbiblical or is it a grey area? I'm of the opinion that it is not biblical, but maybe I should not let it bother me so much. I believe the Bible teaches giving tithes and offerings to the church, and church fundraising gives the impression that we should add-on to God's Word and even be coercive in doing so.

Thoughts?

Many "churches" use a business model. What Scriptural basis do they use for this? "Go Fund Me"? 4 Hezekiah 438:18? (from the Devised Standard Version) rofl

I see not mere tithing taught in the NT but, gifts and offerings.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost.
