Yes I agree this is grounds.


What Is Tithing
  
Under the Law, Gentiles were aliens and strangers from the commonwealth of Israel, without God, with hope.(Ephesians 2:12)

The church believe the law was given to them. Also, tithing was not before the law. Which is why I referenced Genesis 14.

Although they offered 10 percent to each other, Abram and Melchisedec took nothing from each other.

Neither was the law incorporated into Grace.

Galatians 5:4 (KJV)
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law, ye are fallen from grace.
The subject of tithing is very vass and impossible to completely cover in one blog reply.

I am coming to you in a peaceful and non-argumentive spirit, and I would hope you to do the same.


What Is Tithing
  
Hello Nicole,

Tithing wasn't money at all!! No where in the bible is tithing mentioned as money. The Law of the tithe was given to the Children of Israel. It was given for one purpose and one purpose only! To take care of the tribe of Levi.
Read Deuteronomy chapter 18 and Numbers chapter 18.

Tithing was everything you can eat.


Nehemiah 13:12
Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries.


Leviticus 27:32 (KJV)
And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the Lord.


What Is Tithing
  
Jesus is "The Rock of Offense"
(Romans 9:13, 1st Peter 2:8, Isaish 8:14). It is not me who is being offensive, it is the Word. I have no opinion, I don't lean on my own understanding. Because tithing is such a vass subject, I left it up to others as to where to start.
However, a good place to build a foundation about tithing would be Genesis chapter 14, and take it from there.


How To Properly Tithe
  
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.


What Is Tithing
  
I agree Leon. I used the word "Dictate" because that is exactly what these Pastors are doing, Dictating. They are using intimidating tactics to get money from the congregation, and the congregation is giving their money because they are not doing as it says in Timothy.

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.


What Is Tithing
  
Hello Santimoy Kumar, as soon as you or someone else ask the first question concerning tithing, then we can get the ball rolling.


What Is Tithing
  
There are many churches today that dictate that one must pay 10 percent of their income. Pastors are commanding this, but not "teaching" tithing, it"s meaning and it's roots. The church today is paying tithes without an understanding.
Proverbs 4:7 (KJV)
Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

I would love to answer any questions that anyone has concerning tithing according to the Word of God. We can study this together, and you will be surprised at what you are going to find.


Study Scriptures With Me
  
Hello Michael,

You are not alone. I see what's happening in these last days. The Word is truth. It says that they (the church) will have itching ears. They will love lies rather than the truth, and that they will heap up to themselves teachers. But we must understand that scripture must be fulfilled, and these things must happen. So try not to be frustrated Michael, as you are not alone.


My Boyfriend Died
  
My boyfriend died 4/11/09...the results of the biopsy have yet to come in...every day I think about him. When I meditate i feel his presence and a big part of that is because when he was here we used to meditate together. He was the most peaceful, loving person i've ever known. Just as I am, he was only 16 years old. It kills me to know that he's really gone. Some times I feel so alone..actually, I feel that way most of the time...I talk about him everyday it has yet to help. I feel so empty...please, if anyone reads this, I just need someone to talk to.


Are Catholics Doomed To Hell
  
Infant Baptism is Strange?
You deny WORKING for salvation, but boost on finding Jesus?

A baby can't do anything. Jesus is doing the saving not us.
A baby can't boost on finding Jesus'.
Nor boost on efforts of being saved.

You think you accepted Jesus because of words said by you?
Jesus found you FIRST!
Jesus Saved you not by your own merits of words. Or because you DECIDED to be Saved.
You have turned everything upside down. You didn't find Jesus. Jesus had His eye on you the first moment you existed.

Jesus Saved me. No merit, effort, word or strength by me.
Only by the MERCY OF GOD.
I CAN'T BOOST. I didn't do any work to be SAVED.
My work is to MAINTAIN my Salvation, not OBTAIN it.


Are Catholics Doomed To Hell
  
Ruben since he's not only knowledgeable about the Catholic religion, but knowledgeable about the Bible as well.---Anne

You can praise Ruben and rightfully so for his knowledge. But, you can ask and praise him without insulting or putting down others.

You seem to believe that Catholics know more about their faith than the Bible.
That is your beliefs not a true fact about Catholics.

Just because a person can't quote chapter and verse doesn't mean he doesn't know the Gospel. We study the Bible not memorize it.

You seem shock to see a Catholic know his faith and Bible - why?
Instead of thinking Ruben is one of a kind, why not think you just don't know many Catholics?
No hard feeling. Take care as well.


Sheep Of Another Flock
  
Judy, most Christians do think they are the first group. They are wrong.
The Apostles are Jewish. The Jewish people are the first group not Christians.

Matthew 15:21-28

V 24,26-28 "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel....It is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs." She said, Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters....
"O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish."

Sheeps are in flocks.
Jesus is our Master.

Jewish and Genitles are the 2 flocks.
Christians are Genitles in Jewish's eyes.

Acts 46-49 Paul and Barnabas are clear on this fact.


Are Catholics Doomed To Hell
  
Do many others of the Catholic faith that you know, know the Bible as well as you do? You seem very very knowledgeable of a great deal of the Bible,..You seem sort of like a 'diamond in the rough' in the Catholic church..one of the unique few.--Anne

Judging Anne? Matthew 7:1 Shock because I know that verse?
Do you know all 1 billion Catholics to make that statement?

Ruben knows God's Words, because the Bible is read to US every Sunday.
Chapters, not just a verse. Old and New Testment.
Before you judge Catholics, you need to go to a Mass first. Then you would not ask such a question as you did.

Thats like me asking you, does Protestants sing hymn songs as you?
If I went to a Protestant service, I WOULD KNOW.


Are Catholics Doomed To Hell
  
Sag, why are you asking Protestants?

That's like asking a skin doctor if you had a heart attack or not?
Wouldn't you ask a heart doctor about your heart?
Only show your rash to the skin doctor.

Those folks can't read your heart.
If you die in mortal sin, you will go to hell.

If you are baptized in the Trinity's Name as Jesus ordered in Matthew 28, and asked Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins.
You are going to Heaven.

Remember, Jesus died for your sins.
Not Brother Smock or Sister Cindy.
Paul warned us against false prophets like them.


Roman Catholic Bishop Allah
  
My dear, your own theory has everyone belonging to the RCC.
So, Luther is still a Catholic? What does 'excommunication' mean to you?

If you acknowledged that he broke with the Vatican, then you know the Vatican does not endorse his thinking.

Many Bishops thinks abortion isn't a sin. But, everyone including you know that the Vatican states Abortion is a SIN!

That information of the Bishop breaking away from the Vatican should have been said. Andrea and you are making it seem that the Vatican backs up the Bishop.

Also, If I were you, I would stop reading 'Catholic World News daily'.
Not a good source.
If you want the truth, go to the Vatican website instead.
If you want to know the truth about the RCC?


Roman Catholic Bishop Allah
  
Roman Catholic Bishop in the Netherlands has proposed people of all faiths refer to God as Allah to foster understanding. What do you think, should Christians do this?--Andrea on 8/15/07


You are mistaken. It wasn't a Roman Catholic Bishop who suggested that.
You have confused some other leader and assumed he was a Catholic Bishop.
Many church leaders dress similiar to Catholics.

Please state the Name of the person, so you can correctly associate his membership in another Church.

The Roman Catholic Church has enough lies blamed on them.

Please don't add to the confusion, it isn't nice.
