Bring your tithes and offerings into the house of God for it is a good thing to do. It is one out of the numerous supports you can give to the church of God. The priests and pastors gets their livelihood from your offerings (Deuteronomy 10:9,18:1-2). Tithe and offering is God's commandment and obedient to it brings His blessings (Malachi 3:10), when your priest and pastor speak of offerings they are not really after their pockets, rather they are teaching you the word of God.
Everything we offer to God means so much to Him, that is why he explained to us the things we should never bring into His house. If you give unto the Lord an offering he warned you against, it might bring course unto you as it happened to Cain( Genesis 4:3-12). A rejected offering won't attract any blessings from God as you might be expecting. This usually made some people call God a liar, but God can never lie.
As a Christian, do not labor to bring fat offering into the house of God. Do not commit any form of evil so you can come to Church and make huge donation, pay fat tithe and lots more offering. The priests or the pastor of your church and the congregation may be happy and celebrate you for such, but what about God?, Have you ever pause to think about that. You don't have to disobey God for the sake of offerings, he won't accept it (1Samuel 15:22). Let's consider what God commanded in (Deuteronomy 23:18). If you are a male or female prostitute, do use whatever you make out of it, don't bring it into the house of God for any reason whatsoever. Dog is an unclean animal as recorded in Leveticus 11, God doesn't tolerate any form of uncleanness.
My dear if your source of income is not godly, please don't bother about church offering, God doesn't need it. It is simply disobedient to him, and every act of disobedient never bring blessings but course. Consider this and avoid bringing the wrath of God upon yourself.
