THIS IS WHY MANY CHURCHES AND MINISTRY DO COLLAPSE. BECAUSE OF LACK OF FUNDS NO ONE WANTS TO GIVE , AND THOSE WHO DO GIVE CARRY THE WEIGHT OF THE FREE RIDER WHO DOES NOT WANT TO GIVE.EVENTUALLY, THE CHURCH OR MINISTRY GROWS BUT THE GIVERS DECREASE AND THE FREE RIDERS INCREASE. SO THAT MINISTRY OR CHURCH REALLY HAS A HARD TIME SUBSATAINING. THEY HAVE TO DO OUTSIDE STUFF TO CARRY THE CHURCH OR MINISTRY. BUT THEN THIS TAKES AWAY FROM THE WORK OF GOD. IF YOU KEEP TAKING THERE WILL BE NOTHING LEFT TO GIVE. GOD TOLD ME
THIS IS WHY MANY OF HIS CHILDREN SUFFER THEY DONT GIVE THEY HAVE EXCUSES ALL THE TIME. INSTEAD OF FAITH AND TRUSTING IN GOD THEY FOLD BY THE DEVIL PA'''PLAY BOOK AND DONT GIVE AND CONTINUE TO SUFFER IN ALL AREAS OF THEIR LIFE. THIS MUST CHANGE WE MUST ALL BE GIVERS AND HELPERS OF THE MINISTRY WE FOLLOW OR SUPPORT AND THE LEADERS. I MEAN THE TRUE ONES NOT THE DEVIL ONES OF SATAN IN TO JUST GETTING YOUR MONEY FOR JETS OR VACATION ECT
.I MEAN THE REAL LEADERS WHO TRULY ARE SWEATING IT OUT FOR GOD TRULY. MANY PEOPLE SUFFER IN MONEY AND FIMACES BECAUSE THEY DONT TITHE OR SOW OR GIVE IN ANY CAPACITY.SO DONT BE A FREE RIDER ANY MORE BE A HELPER BE A BLESSING AND SO SHALL YOU BECOME BLESS AND GET HELPERS FROM GOD
In the social sciences, the free-rider problem is a type of market failure that occurs when those who benefit from resources, public goods, or services of a communal nature do not pay for them. Free riders are a problem because while not paying for the good, they may continue to access it. Thus, the good may be under-produced, overused or degraded. The free-rider problem in social science is the question of how to limit free riding and its negative effects in these situations. The free-rider problem may occur when property rights are not clearly defined and imposed.
The free-rider problem is common with goods that are non-excludable, including public goods and situations of the Tragedy of the Commons. A free rider may enjoy a non-excludable good such as a government-provided road system without contributing to paying for it. For example, if a coastal town builds a lighthouse, ships from many regions and countries will benefit from it, even though they are not contributing to its costs, and are thus "free-riding" on the navigation aid.
Although the term "free rider" was first used in the economic theory of public goods, similar concepts have been applied to other contexts, including collective bargaining, antitrust law, psychology and political science. For example, some individuals in a team or community may reduce their contributions or performance if they believe that one or more other members of the group may free ride.
