  1. There is a Baptist pastor here in the town I live in who is periodically on the local radio station. I enjoy listening to him speak, but he recently gave a sermon on tithing and used Malachi as his reference. he went as far as to say we would be cursed for not obeying, and that we were robbing God…. I was very put off by this message, especially since it came from such an educated man with a doctorate ….I'd like to speak to him privately about the message.. what would your suggestion be?

  2. Is it only money? I think it's not even money. If you read everything about, it's always about food.and don't forget about where it talks about tithe for the poor, orphan and widow. I being an orphan according to the flesh. I have no parents living. God is my Father.

  3. True, but since God gave 10% as a value in the Old Testament as a good place to start, plus other offerings, I would consider that God approves of this.  Also the NT does speak of giving, "for God loves a cheerful giver".  You can't out give God…He faithfully blesses and takes care of His own who lay up their treasures in heaven.  God clearly rewards sincere, heartfelt giving as an act of worship and God's ownership of everything you possess.  It is foolish not to give, and to be so unwise as to forget the 2 greatest commandments: to love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself and thus fulfill all the law through the Spirit and not the letter.  By my reckoning…what's the point of this presentation?

  4. This was a good video, but I wish it had mentioned 2 Corinthians 9:7 explicitly, which reads (in the KJV):

    "Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver."

  5. Jesus was speaking to people who had a Jewish, Old Covenant mind set. God will never expect any less than 100%. Equating the church to the grain silos of Malachi is an error. The church is not a storehouse, it is a pass-through house. Tithing is way too little for a Christian to even consider.
