I think that Jesus' disciples are supposed to give to human need. As regards tithing, the mainstay of the tithe was to go to Levites and 1/10 of that to the High Priest. Today we know Jesus is the High Priest and we are a nation of priests (according to Peter)…….so IF tithing was in effect then we would just give it to ourselves right? Under the Law Covenant, tithing was not a "make up your own rules" thing. It was the LAW of tithing and had to be done according to the Law dictates. There's no way that is in effect now under the New Covenant which is a new Age. (Unless it's manipulated)

Going from the story of the widow's mite it seems everyone has something God would like to see them give. He truly seems to love cheerful giving.

This is a good, responsible explanation on giving according to New Testament principles… Thank you.

You must be a Jew in Israel to TITHE…Tithing was never money…NEVER..Tithing for the Jews was 10%/20% of your produce (Live stock, crops, fish etc). The Jews had money (physical coins) in those days Yes and was never used for tithing.. In certain exceptional cases money was obtained by selling some of the produce if the Jew had to travel very very far to go to Jerusalem to give their tithe. The money was used to travel and by produce on the other end which became produce anyway again. To try and make TITHING money is a big deception. Be careful my brothers and sisters. Rather you call it sacrificial giving..Yes..Joyful and cheerful giving. Don't even think of trying to crowbar in the 10% part into it!!!!!!!…and Mal 3…PLEASE…The Jews are being spoken to here…Keep focus guys!!!YESHUA LOVES YOU ALL!!!!!

Why do they always quote 2 Corinthians and 1st Corinthians?These passages are about giving to the saints in need, not the church to pay the pastors secretary and their “YES” men

Why is he listing billionaires who serve Satan as examples of giving? He’s clueless about how those people got all of that wealth and power. The only way you get to the top of the pyramid is to make a vow to Satan to give you the riches of this world. Wake up people pleas wake up!

How about simply listening to the Holy Spirit in prompting you what to give?

Read Genesis 28, last paragraph.

Well taxes always feels like it takes most of my paycheck so it's hard to give more than 10%.

It's not about the giving. It the tithes. Tithes and giving are different.

What about giving to the poor. Why does all the giving have to be towards the church

Everything this man just said was a distortion of scripture….and he said it in a way to manipulate the believer…he completely twisted the scripture about Old Testament tithes….LIES!!!!

Dee Dee - posted on June 23, 2019 12:33 am

it is not for the church to dictate what the believer should give. Giving serves a purpose to support the work of God, and God does command that we give to support the work of the ministry according to what we have, and it is between us and God, not you. Don't you guys live in million dollars homes while there are some folks among you barely able to afford to eat? No body told you to build giant buildings that suck up money in utilities, insurance, payroll. besides your huge take.. Bet you do not give any accounting of where the giving goes, because you would be too embarrassed to be exposed of how little of it goes to actually the work of promoting the gospel.

Dee Dee - posted on June 23, 2019 7:32 pm

I appreciate that you do defend the gospel from unbelievers attempting to secularize the gospel to bring in heresies. But I am very disappointed here regarding your waffling on the truth about tithing. First, brethren, I pray you will repent from condemnation of the church as a whole whom you claim all of them give less than the nation of Israel did under the Law. You lie because you are not all knowing, only God is. Secondly you have no authority from Jesus Christ under the new covenant to set the dollar amount of what the Christian should give. I rebuke you and pray that you will repent of the desire to put Christians into bondage under a man made system of giving.

There is no doubt that God commands Christians to give for good works including the ministry. But the amount to be given is to be determined by the giver alone who should give cheerfully, consistently and as generously as they can, and this is only between the giver and God, not man. But you are a 501 church, meaning you contracted with the IRS as an establishment of religion to be tax exempt, so certain amounts given to you the giver can take off of his or her tax return. You keep a record of what people give so at the end of the year this is the proof to the IRS of what they gave to you. In being a 501 church you give up the right to voice your opinion or support political candidates and policies.

You are hypocrites, because this is not the way the bible teaches us to give. Strangely, brethren, I notice you do not detail in any manner whatsoever, what you actually do with the money given. We know as you say to pay bills, but how much of those bills are just about yours? How much is actually going to promote the gospel, feed the poor, train people to get out on the streets and witness to save souls? Why do you seem surprised that in light of your silence in this area to give account for the money given that some might be reluctant to give. There is nothing in the bible to give you license to fail to give account to the church about where the dollars are going. The IRS should not know more about this than the congregation. At the end of the day, I'm always with Lord Jesus Christ. Giving sermons a few times a week does not mean I have to give you a wind fall to live luxuriously beyond the congregation, send your kids to college, and give you a mortgage free house.

There is a better understanding of how Jesus Christ changed the tithes at christiansunite.com see serolas blog.

Paul Steele - posted on June 28, 2019 5:13 am

You say that every Israelite gave the tithe, but the bible never says that fishermen or soldiers or tax collectors, etc., paid a tithe. It was always produce or livestock only. Please correct your misspeaking. God bless.

Paul Steele - posted on June 28, 2019 5:16 am

Wasn't Paul taking up a special collection for the poor in Israel when he asked them to put aside something every Sunday? This was not a commandment for everyone to give each and every Sunday. Correct me if I'm wrong. God bless.

Paul Steele - posted on June 28, 2019 5:20 am

Even the honest pastors, such as this brother, can't help but say that the tithe is a starting point. That is not what the N.T. teaches at all. It's as each purposes in his own heart, as led by the Holy Spirit. Only non-pastors can speak the complete truth on this topic, it appears.

Read Deuteronomy 14:22-26
Christianity are not under any obligation to pay tithe

Shelly Blanchard - posted on July 24, 2019 10:21 pm

They still want to push it somewhat even though they are not saying it. When they had a garden in Israel they left the corners of the field for the poor so they could have something to eat. ?

Excellent, very well done!

The tithe was for the nation of Israel. We (The body of Christ) are now under the new covenant. We are no longer under the law. We are now under grace. Under the law they were required to give by necessity, but in 2 Corinthians chapter 9 we are instructed to give non grudgingly for God loves a cheerful giver. Think about it. You cannot do both of these at the same time. You can either give by necessity or purpose giving in your heart and be a cheerful giver. Its either be required to give a tenth of every dollar or give as you purpose. The law is of necessity, but grace allows you to decide for yourself. Additionally, the biblical tithe had nothing to do with money. They were required to tithe off their livestock, produce, and crops. They never used money to tithe. The tithe was for those who worked their land so many were excluded from the tithe like fishermen. No land, no livestock, no vineyard, meant no tithe. The homeless and the widows were not required to tithe either. But tell a prosperity preacher that and he will tell you that they are robbing God! The tithe applied to farmers and herdsmen. Unfortunately, the prosperity gospel preached today failed to rightly divide the word of truth as in the bible we have law giving instructions and grace giving instructions. We the new Body of Christ are under grace giving instructions. Romans 6 :14 says we are not under the law, we are under grace. And if the prosperity gospel preachers teach that we are required to tithe then they must also teach not to leave your residence on the sabbath, or remove all the leaven from your homes on passover eve, or 3 times per year all men must visit the holy land. etc etc… But no they will say that was for Israel. Bingo! Exactly! If you are teaching that we are under the law, you cannot pick and choose which laws you want to follow and not follow.

Why many churches still requiring tithing we are now in the new testament church there is no temple no more animal sucrifices. This is cheating this pastor are not honest to teach the truth about tithing.

Eduardo Manalili - posted on September 5, 2019 6:33 am

The new testament church started afterthe death of Christ. You can find even a single verse in the new testament church about instruction to give thier tithe.

Nandi Hlongwani - posted on September 10, 2019 11:57 am

We should give our tithe. It's a must and not an option. Pls don't misunderstand that, it's a covenant between you and God.

Bella Donnelly - posted on September 15, 2019 8:42 am

The church I go to does not go around with a bag to collect tithes but our pastor makes mention that most give on line or else their is a donation box at the front of the church. First church that I’ve been to that does not go on about tithe. It’s so liberating and I’m a joyful giver to my church community. Praise God for this wonderful teaching on tithing.

“THIS IS HOW YOU DETERMINE IF NOT PAYING TITHES AND OFFERINGS IS MAN’S COMMAND OR GOD’S COMMAND”.

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

ROMANS 3:4

FALSE DOCTRINE WILL TEACH THAT THE TITHES IS ONLY FOR:

“THE ISRAELITES UNDER THE LAW FOR A SPECIFIC TIME AND PLACE”

THIS IS FALSE: (JACOB, “ISRAEL” WAS NOT UNDER THE LAW, JACOB PAID TITHES, BEFORE THE LAW AND HE WASN’T IN JERUSALEM).

And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, 21 So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: 22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.

GENESIS 28:20-22

“IT WAS NOT MONEY”

THIS IS FALSE: (TITHES COULD BE MONEY)

Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.

DEUTERONOMY 14:22

Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:

DEUTERONOMY 14:25

APOSTLES’ DOCTRINE TEACHES US THAT:

WE ARE THE SEED OF ABRAHAM IN CHRIST JESUS AND HEIRS TO THE PROMISE.

And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

GALATIANS 3:29

THE LAW THAT WAS 430 YEARS AFTER THE PROMISE, CANNOT DISANNUL (MAKE VOID) THE PROMISE.

And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

GALATIANS 3:17, 18

ABRAHAM PAID TITHES OF ALL TO MELCHEHISEDEC.

For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; 2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

HEBREWS 7:1, 2

JESUS CHRIST IS OUR HIGH PRIEST AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHISEDEC.

So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. 6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

HEBREWS 5:5, 6

SO IF YOU ARE THE “NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH” THEN YOU ARE THE SEED OF ABRAHAM THROUGH CHRIST JESUS,

ABRAHAM PAID TITHES AND SO DOES HIS SEED “THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH” WHO ARE HEIRS OF THE PROMISE.

And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. 19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: 20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

GENESIS 14:18-20

For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

HEBREWS 11:14-16

“THIS IS HOW YOU DETERMINE IF NOT PAYING TITHES AND OFFERINGS IS MAN’S COMMAND OR GOD’S COMMAND”.

DOES THE HOLY SCRIPTURES BIBLE TELL US ANYWHERE:

“DO NOT PAY TITHES?” YES OR NO.

IF YOU SAY YES.

PLEASE FIND THE SCRIPTURE AND POST IT FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH.

IF YOU SAY NO. THEN WHAT IS THE ARGUMENT?

“NOT PAYING TITHES” IS MAN READING INTO THE SCRIPTURES TEXT IN AN ATTEMPT TO PUT WORDS IN GOD’S MOUTH.

1. ) MALACHI 3:10, TELLS US TO BRING ALL THE TITHES FOR GOD’S HOUSE.

2. ) 1 TIMOTHY 3:15, TELLS US GOD’S HOUSE IS THE “CHURCH”, OF THE LIVING GOD, THE PILLAR AND GROUND OF TRUTH.

3. ) DEUTERONOMY 14:25, TELLS US WE CAN TURN IT INTO MONEY.

4. ) MALACHI 3:8, TELLS US THOSE WHO DON’T PAY TITHES AND OFFERINGS ARE ROBBING GOD.

5. ) 1 CORINTHIANS 6:9, 10, TELLS US NOT TO BE DECEIVED BECAUSE THIEVES WILL NOT GO INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

6. ) MATTHEW 4:17 and MARK 1:14, 15, JESUS CHRIST TELLS US THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS HEAVEN.

7. ) JOHN 1:1, JOHN 1:14. and JOHN 1:17, TELLS US JESUS CHRIST IS GOD FROM THE BEGINNING, WHO WAS THEN LATER MADE FLESH.

8. ) JESUS CHRIST, THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH, ADDRESSES “TITHES” ONLY ONCE IN THE ENTIRE 31, 102 VERSES OF THE HEBREW PRESERVED MASORETIC AND GREEK ANTIOCH TEXT OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES BIBLE PRESERVED IN THE AUTHORIZED KING JAMES BIBLE.

WHAT DID JESUS CHRIST SAY ABOUT TITHES?

9. ) JESUS CHRIST TELLS US WE “OUGHT TO PAY TITHES”

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

MATTHEW 23:23

10. ) WE "OUGHT TO OBEY" GOD RATHER THAN MEN

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

ACTS 5:29

AMEN AND AMEN.
