I don't know about the rest of you all but we are taught to spend every minute of the day thinking of God.

Am I successful? No, but God loves it that I try a little harder everyday.

Treating your boss with compassion even when he or she doesn't deserves it is devoting your time to God.

You are putting on Jesus whom God sent to the World Who has over come the World.

Each minute belongs to God.
Every dollar belongs to God.

When I behave as each minute and cent belongs to God and not mine is when I have been successful.

Which I shall be dead before that happens.

But that GOAL still belongs to me!

In these last days, the Church is not separating Law from Grace, and therefore, Christ has no effect on them, and they have fallen from Grace.

Galatians 5:4
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law, ye are fallen from grace.

Micha one seventh of my time is spent is asked by GOD so I spend the Sabbath as GOD asked me to. A time of putting aside the world and concentrating on my Lord and Savior.

If your pastor buckles under financial pressure to preach tithing instead of grace, he is not faithful to the preaching of the cross.
Any church that turns its back on grace, and goes back under the law to teach tithing deserves to close its doors. The doors only close if hearts purpose to leave, and maintain the integrity of the cross.
Set your affections on things above, and be followers together of Paul (Phil 3:17-18).
Shut the mouths of those teachers that beg the Body of Christ for money (Titus 1:11).
Provide for your family, preach Christ crucified, give graciously as you purpose in your heart to those that need it, build grace churches, and avoid religionists who make merchandise of the cross by begging for your money.

Samuel,
Do you tithe on your increase of time God has given you?
Do you give God 16.8 hours a week back to Him for His glory?

As a hireling I sell my time and labor for money.

So the wages I am paid are an increase to me.

I understand people want to spend their money on themselves and not give it to GOD or help others with it. That is the way of the world greed and selfishness.
---Samuelbb7 on 8/20/15


"Wages" is not "increase."
"Wages" is compensation for time served.
"Profit" may be considered "increase", but where does one draw the line at "profit"?
When a follower of Christ uses the word "increase" in regards to tithing, it is usually a reference to the Levitical tithe.
The "increase" was given by God, i.e. how much crop grew or how many cattle were born.
The farmer has little to do with that.
He can sow, and water, but does not know which seeds will grow nor how much each seed will produce.
The same with cattle, one can feed and water, but none can tell how many offspring there will be in any given time period.

Does one need to tithe on the money derived from the sale of crops or animals?

I feel that if we believe that tithing is for us today then it should simply mean giving a tenth of our increase (either our wages or the money we make from our own business etc.) It should be totally anonymous and given willingly otherwise there is little point in doing it at all.

//Since GOD never set us free from the law your statement does not make sense.//
Maybe scripture makes sense.
Rom 6:14 "For sin shall not have dominion over you: FOR WE ARE NOT UNDER LAW..."(Gal 3:23,
Gal 4:4,5,21 Gal 5:18 1 Tim 1:7)
//We still have circumcision//
Gal 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but faith which worketh by love.
We learn from Paul that we are not under the law and we are free from its bondage (Gal 4:9). Even more, Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law: (Gal 4:13)
Mandatory tithing isn't a practice for the boC. Those who teach tithing are either ignorant of Pauls instructions or are mishandling the word of truth (Titus 1:11).
---michael_e on 8/16/15




Since GOD never set us free from the law your statement does not make sense.

Romans 3:31
Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
See Romans 6 and 13.
We still have circumcision.

Romans 2:29
But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter, whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Our heart must be dedicated to GOD. Not just the flesh.

Yes are to give. But many grudgingly give and they don't want to give 10%.

---Samuelbb7 on 8/16/15


Abraham gave tithes of all in Gen 14. He began circumcision in Gen 17. They became part of the Law. They were set aside when God set us free from the Law.
II Cors 8:12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
II Cor 9:7 - Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give, not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
Paul addressing the boC never uses the word tithe in any of his epistles.
---michael_e on 8/13/15


Aren't we all called to witness according to the New Testament? To witness is ministering, just as we are to help the poor, sick,depressed, alcoholic, etc. Aren't we all to mature in the Word and application of it's instruction such as Bible study/groups? This is ministering. The key is that now we posess the Holy Spirit in ourselves and are to use the Holy Spirit, not just attend a church service.
I should start another blog on this so I don't get away from the original subject here.

Or, if not a home church, a simple.....building w/o all the bells and whistles that never end and with some monetary help for the pastor. Today we tend to think we should pay the pastor for all his visitation and prayer and ministering when the N.T. model is that we are all ministers and responsible for doing all the above mentioned actions. Instead, we have learned to pay one man to do this, attend once or twice per week to listen to what he has done and his ideas and we're okay with God.

"we've created "churches" that are money mad"

Anyone attending a church which asks for more and more money, whilst being told that God will reward them 100 fold, should start taking boxes of groceries to church and gallons of milk so that they can be distributed to the poorer people inside or outside the church. Then sit back and wait for 100 boxes of groceries to turn up at your home!! You'll have a long wait. Make sure that the pastor knows that you did that for a reason and continue doing it until he stops his false teachings (or change church).

Pastors who preach this 'one hundred fold' gospel are interested in nothing except money. That is why their houses and cars are grander than those of their members.

Yes many church leaders are false and money mad. Which is the reason for the prosperity gospel. Give to them and get rich.

My Title generally goes to my church. In our church it is used to pay for missionaries, teachers and pastors throughout the world. No matter how much tithe a church collects the Pastor's salary is fixed and he cannot touch the tithe.

Occasionally I and others have used our tithe to help people in trouble. But I like to use my money over tithe to do that if I can.

---Samuelbb7 on 8/10/15


I see your point on changing tithe to money today, but I see in doing that on our own, we've created "churches" that are money mad, never-ending demands for money for ________ has replaced discipleship. Along with changing to money we at the same time change the N.T. church to a building to "obey our law" of attending and giving and believing we're good with God. This is our religion, not God's.Home church is free.

Christ isn't collecting tithes. His one-time priestly work for the Hebrews is finished (Heb 7:27, Heb 9:28). Those who pretend to collect for him are doing so without authority.
The new covenant was for Israel and Judah (Heb 8:10). Gentiles were and are strangers from Israels covenants of promise.
If you are saved today You are the body of Christ. Our complete position in Christ doesn't obligate us to tithe.
Abrams tithe to Melchizedek isn't an example of our obligation to tithe to a local pastor.
Gods grace teaches us to give generously as we purpose in our hearts to those things that will help accomplish Gods How much we give is a matter of our own purpose, spiritual maturity, and discernment (2 Cor 9:6-10).

Anyone who believes that God still desires that we tithe in modern times then that is what they should do and, these days, it would be a tithe of the money we made from whatever it is we do to survive and provide for our family. Even those with crops don't give away a portion to God, they sell it all then give a tithe of the proceeds to God's house for its upkeep.

There will be very few people who tithe using crops or animals these days because everything has a value and money is needed to keep Christian churches operating.

Tithing was required as was circumcision and water baptism.
Num 18:21). There is no Levitical priesthood today.
Preachers and teachers in the body of Christ are not priests. Christ is the mediator (1 Tim 2:5).
The tithe given to Levites was because they had no land (Numbers 18:21).
The boC doesn't observe required feast day celebrations
Three times a year in Deut 16:16. at certain feast days tithes would be offered. One tithe allowed you to stay home and spend it on what you desired (Deut 14:26).
Law tithing requirements were more than 10 percent
Deut 14:28 is one example of the tithe on the increase every 3 years that was above the regular Levitical tithe. There are other required offerings also according to Mal 3:9.

If one is a Hebrew, certain crops and animals are subject to the tithe (noxious weeds and kitty cats being excluded), and the items in question must have been grown / raised in Israel only. Redeeming it required an additional 20% over the tithes value though, Leviticus 27:13, 31. Lastly, you will need the use of a Tardis, as the Temple was destroyed in 70 a.d..

Nevertheless, as I mentioned to Nicole_Lacey about Judas on another blog, who knows?

This is strict predestination, which is extremely flawed. If you substitute "tithe" for "murder", "steal", "worship other gods", or anything else, you will see just how illogical the base argument is.

If one would then counter-argue that "those who murder are never Elect in the first place", one could similarly argue that "those who don't tithe are never Elect in the first place".

/Does one need to tithe on the money derived from the sale of crops or animals?\

-Jacob promised to "give" a tenth of all he owned.
-Abraham "gave" a tenth of what he recovered from the thieves and he "gave" the rest back to the owners.

It can most specifically mean the first five books of the twenty-four books of the Tanakh (all passed on by oral tradition), . . . With rabbinic commentaries.
. . . Torah consists of the foundational narrative of the Jews.

Scripture is what God's Spirit Authored. Oral tradition, commentaries and narratives included in the Torah are functional paraphases, which dilute, alter God's intent.

---Scott1 on 7/10/15


Applying portions of the Torah to life today is challenging. aservant is using his tradition/teaching and reading it into Scripture, using Scripture as a Ouji Board, refusing to acknowledge the historical setting and what it says and to who and why.

Once a Torah Teaching is understood in it's context, the challenge is how to apply it today.

That's why there are/were Rabbis to interpret the Torah, hence the Mishna (written oral teachings) and the Talmad (commentaries on the Mishna).

The tithe supported the government/religious system and helped the poor, somewhat an equalizing/social system.

To be fair to aservant, how one applies the tithe today is (should be) an interesting discussion.

/God gives you 50,000 bushels,
you sell 30,000 bushels,
you keep 20,000 bushels
In this example, you will have to tithe on 100% of the increase, which includes money from the sale of the crops.\-aservant on 7/8/15
The tithe is directly from the crops & cattle - first fruits.
10k bushels would be paid to the Levites as their inheritance.
The selling of the goods is irrelevant.
And, according to Deu 14, this only happens once every 3 years.
The Hebrew word for "increase" has many definitions, just like other words. It is the context that determines the definition.
In this case, it is crops & cattle.

The context is produce, not money.

From: Tithing Before the Law

from Dt 14:28 increase H8393

H8393
& #1514,

tebu & #770,'a & #770,h
teb-oo-aw'
From H935, income, that is, produce (literally or figuratively): - fruit, gain, increase, revenue.

revenue = money

Again:
God gives you 50,000 bushels,
you sell 30,000 bushels,
you keep 20,000 bushels

In this example, you will have to tithe on 100% of the increase, which includes money from the sale of the crops. Money is part of the "yield". The money would not be there if not for the crops.
