I do not think that most tithe. But many would tithe if they won the lottery. In essence, the more one gets, the more one gives. We live in a debt society. Every is paying bills. We are taught to be in debt. We do not get much spiritual blessing in church, so give it little. Church gives little. Church gets little. The more people feel blessed, the more they give.

It's time for the storehouse tithing doctrine to be placed in the landfill of church history. Malachi 3:9-10 speaks about the covenant relationship between Israel and God not the church of today.
Many tithers mention Melchizedek as if this King of Salem could justify their required tithe teaching.
Does Abrahams tithe to Melchizedek require the church to pay tithes to our local pastor?
No. Abraham tithed in response to a unique blessing by Melchizedek. Gen 14:18-19 states that the king brought bread and wine and blessed Abram. You did not receive the blessing from Melchizedek, nor were your enemies delivered into thy hand.

Do you give to ALL that ask or do you pick and choose who you give to?

Do you give on a personal level or do you depend upon some organization to do the job for you?

Remember, God is looking for the right person to populate his soon-to-come kingdom. He is looking at the individual, not some organization.

Aw! The miracles that churches could do if everyone would tithe? What abundance the church would have! Yet it is a debt society. We are taught to owe. People are paying for houses and cars and divorce. Money is always gone. Yet an alcoholic can afford his alcohol, and a smoker can afford his cigarettes!

Yes, my father as a pastor always gave his tithe to the church he was serving too. That is good sense for a minister to give his tithes to the place he is serving. Were I a minister, it would make good sense for me to do this too. "Cast your bread upon the water and it shall return to you."

In the Old Testament a person is instructed to tithe 10% and some Christians claim this isn't true in the New Testament. In my experience as both a Youth Director and a missionary for 32 years is that Christians who don't tithe use this as an excuse not to tithe. Personally I give my tithe to the church only. (They have expenses such as salaries, heating, etc.) I support other things, like missionary's, Christian organization, etc with money other than the tithe. However, if ALL Christians just gave 10%, no church would ever need money and the church would be support missionary's, and other Christian groups etc.

Amen amen and amen...

Thought Provoking Point about pastors using the law to motivate people to give...

You always seem to just know how to strike the nail on the head lol
---john9346 on 1/24/17




When I believed in Titheing, I actually gave less financially.

When I was freed by God's Grace to understand that Titheing is bondage, legalism, and a curse, I actually give more now financially then I ever have and I love and enjoy every bit of it... Blessing of Giving...

I don't tithe because I'm not a Levite. However I do give and it's not based on a percentage of my income. ---Rob on 1/23/17

FYI, the Levites collected tithes as their wages before they tithed to the High Priest. Also, the paying of tithes is a "forever" ordinance with the Lord. All of this is in in Num 18.

Placing someone under a required system of tithing and offering is tantamount to ignoring the redemption of Christ and placing the church back under a curse of the law.

Those living under liberty and grace cannot be placed under a curse (Gal 5:1). Mandatory tithing is not a practice for the church, the Body of Christ. Those who teach tithing are either ignorant of Pauls instructions or are mishandling the word of truth (Titus 1:11).

Our generosity is an outgrowth of our thankfulness to God for what he has done on the cross. When pastors use the law to motivate giving they are denying the all sufficient power of Gods grace (2 Cor 5:14-15, 9:8).

Amen Rob,

If we continue reading in Heb 7 vs 12-13 clears up what Paul is saying, "For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar."
14

Heb 7 is concerning with the uniqueness of the Lord Jesus Christ and his ending of the law not justifying an OT Legalistic Practice called, "Tithing."
---john9346 on 1/24/17


Tithing is still expected here in NT times. Tithes are the salary of Church workers in the flesh, but they are more importantly spiritual sacrifices used by Jesus to worship God on your behalf.

Heb 7:8 And here men who die receive tithes, but there he (Jesus - High Priest) receives (present tense) them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives.

Now Jesus can't receive tithes that are not given, so He expects NT church workers to be paid, and He will worship the Father with their tithes and offerings before the workers are paid.

Misuses of tithes will be judged by the Lord.

Mike4879...Yes. I know so. I am the church financial administrator. The church feeds people also and has a food pantry.
---KarenD on 1/23/17


Man-made, denominational "churches" use a whole lot more than eighty percent of their revenues to maintain their worldly assets (their properties, rents/mortgages, paper assets, physical assets, etc).

God is looking for individuals to populate his soon-to-come kingdom who will give from the heart and not depend upon the church or the government to do the work that true christians are suppose to do. Sure, it's easy to say "I give to the church/government to help feed the poor" thus relying on someone else or some other organization to do the work.

What ever happened to true love (as in the verb form). It has practically evaporated from the face of this world.
---Steveng on 1/23/17


leslie ask, "Do you tithe?"

Tithing is an Old Testament Commandment. So now that Christians are under "Grace." there is no need to follow an OT Practice.

In the NT the "Scriptures." do not command an amount, but the act of giving.
---john9346 on 1/23/17


2 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.

8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

1 Cor16:1-2

Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also: 2 On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come.
---john9346 on 1/23/17


You think so?
---mike4879 on 1/23/17


Yes. And the church uses the money wisely.
---KarenD on 1/22/17


I just think churches are under utilized. But I will love to give more than a tithe to good stewardship.

You know Levites were not just priests, they were also housing inspectors and kind of doctors judging skin conditions. It is not the same now. But yes, good stewardship deserves to be supported and the worker.

God loves a cheerful giver! Also, he desires mercy, NOT sacrifice. I will like to give more than 10 percent to a house of prayer and to a house of song. But for just sermons, I do not tithe. I continue to show mercy. When God returns what has been lost, I will give it to him. We give of what we have.
