Is tithing biblical?

By | September 1, 2019

– A question many Christians
have is whether we should tithe and tithing for most
people means giving 10%. Well, we’ll return to that question. The first thing I want to say is good Christians disagree on this. This isn’t the clearest
thing in the Scriptures. And maybe the second thing
I’d want to say is it’s an important question, but it’s
not the most important thing. It’s the kind of thing that we
as Christians can disagree on and have good fellowship together, if we disagree on that matter. I would say, is a tithe
required, 10% tithe. I would say, no, because the tithe is part of the Mosaic covenant,
it’s part of the Mosaic law, the covenant made at Sinai
with Moses and with Israel. And the New Testament is very clear, we’re not under that covenant any longer, Galatians 3, Romans 7, Hebrews 9 and 10. So there’s a lot of texts that indicate we’re not under the Mosaic law. The tithe, the 10% that was given, is actually tithed to the tabernacle and the temple, to the
Levitical priesthood. I mean, where did those tithes go? They went to the temple,
they went to the tabernacle, they went to the priests. Well, we don’t have a temple
or a tabernacle anymore. We don’t have Levitical priests
or Aaronic priests anymore. Jesus is our great high priest. The Church of Jesus
Christ, we are the temple. So, clearly, the tithe, as
part of the Mosaic covenant, since that covenant has passed away, it’s not required of believers. Sometimes people appeal to
Abraham and Jacob giving tithes. They gave 10% on occasions in their life, Abraham to Melchizedek, Jacob
when God met him at Bethel, promised to give 10%. But those are one time, temporary events. There’s no indication
that this is something they regularly did, nor
is there any command, universal command, given to
believers from those passages. It gets even more complex. Jesus commends tithing in Matthew. So some people look at
that passage and say, look, Jesus commands tithing. But we have to be careful there. Jesus also commends forgiving
your brother before you offer a sacrifice at the altar,
in Matthew 5. Jesus spoke to his contemporaries, Jesus lived himself under the Mosaic law, because that covenant was in force until after his ministry,
death, and resurrection. So Jesus commending
tithing, when he’s speaking to the Pharisees, is no indication that it’s still in force today. We always have to think,
when we read a passage in Scripture, where is this in the Bible? So what does the New Testament emphasize? It emphasizes, 2 Corinthians 8 and 9, sacrificial, generous giving. For most of us, that’s
10%, at least, or more. However, I still am hesitant
to give any particular percent. Sacrificial, generous giving. I would say for virtually
everyone, one or two percent, that’s not sacrificial,
generous giving, is it? So God calls upon
us to give sacrificially, but we want to heed
what the Scripture says and to say to believers in Jesus Christ that we’re to give 10%,
well, I don’t think that’s in accord with the Scriptures. One other point. Actually, when we read the Old Testament, this is a very difficult question. They gave more than 10%. There are several tithes
and sorting that all out, I tried to sort it out once, I didn’t spend oodles of time on it, but I tried to sort it out, it’s really hard to
know how much they gave. But it’s probably somewhere
in the 20 percentile range. So the tithe, we say 10%
today, that’s our tradition. But the tithe, when you add
up all the different tithes, the tithes is somewhere in the 20% range. So if we’re really
going to tithe according to the Old Testament, it’s not 10%, it’s somewhere around 20. And as I said, we’re
not under that covenant, we’re not required to tithe today, but we have the opportunity, the joy, of giving sacrificially and generously. Don’t take this answer
as an invitation to say, oh, I don’t have to give generously, I can keep my money for myself. God calls upon each one of us to be generous, sacrificial givers. He tells us that will increase your joy. (music) – [Narrator] Thanks for watching Honest Answers. You can submit your questions by email, Twitter, or in the comment section below.

    Matthew 23:23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone [Deuteronomy 27:26; Galatians 3:10]."

    Hebrews 7:11 Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law [Deuteronomy 14:22-29; Deuteronomy 26:12-15; Deuteronomy 27:19; Malachi 3:1-10; Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42]), what further need that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek [Psalm 110:4], and not be called according to the order of Aaron? 12 For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law [Matthew 6:1-4; Luke 11:41; Acts 10:1-4; Acts 24:17].

    Matthew 6:1 “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.  2 Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.  3 But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,  4 that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly."

    Luke 11:41 "But rather give alms of such things as you have; then indeed all things are clean to you."

    Acts 10:1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment,  2 a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, who gave alms generously to the people, and prayed to God always.  3 About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius!” 4 And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, “What is it, lord?” So he said to him, “Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God. "

    Acts 24:17 “Now after many years I came to bring alms and offerings to my nation,"

    Jesus said “where your treasure is there your heart will be also.” Our hearts always follows where you put your treasure.

    If theOldTestament law started at 10% why would we go backwards in generosity when walking in the New Testament ?

    Why look at the concept of giving to your Eternal High Priest as a law at all?

    Don’t we have the freedom to give whatever we decide? And when we decide why can’t we start at least around 10%?

    The spirit of mammon has a way of convincing even Christians to “chump change” God.

    This guy is accurate when he says that the New Testament is about sacrificial giving.

    However, what I’ve learned about people is that they need help at a starting point otherwise they give crumbs to their Heavenly Father.

    Let’s be honest, most Christians don’t give at least 10% ( not because it’s law) but because we are strapped with a lot of debt, we perceive ourselves to have nothing, and we always believe “rich or wealthy” is the other guy.

    10% to me is the starting point or the training wheels of generosity. If you don’t start with what God had his people start with in the old testament how will you ever get to the place that you will give sacrificially in the new?

    Dollar amount is not important. I believe percentage giving is important. If everyone gives the same percent it is equal sacrifice but it will never be equal amount because we all don’t make the same amount.

    Jesus honored the poor widow because she gave a larger percentage of what she had verses the rich who gave larger dollar amounts but smaller percentages.

    I believe God will meet you wherever you are but eventually the goal is to grow to become a sacrificial percentage together.

    Did Jesus said
    “Dont give your tithes” ?

    God is God
    Commandment is commandment

    If you will look on Malachi 3:8

    Will a man rob God?
    Yet you have robbed Me!
    But you say,
    ‘In what way have we robbed You?’
    In tithes and offerings.

    If you will look back in Malachi 3:6
    God never changed

    He never changed
    We must still give our tithes
    Its better to give than robbing God

    Why we must give ?
    Because God has blessed us so much in our times
    We must repay Him by giving more than our tithes

    Its better to give than to received Jesus said
    There’s nothing wrong to give for the expansion of the work of God

  5. Jimmy Rippy Post author

    Not required, but… “the person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously” (2 Cor 9:6) and Jesus praised the poor widow who gave everything she had (Luke 21:1-4).

    The old law of giving 10 % of your increase (the tithe) of crops and animals was Holy in the Old Testament as it was required by law by God's laws that God gave to mankind, and yes that tithe of the old testament was Holy, however, there is no place in the Bible that states to give 10% of your monthly income of money in the Bible at all either in the Old Testament or New Testament, and that is the error that people are being taught by some tithing ministers that money is to be given for tithing. A Bible College Professor in Florida once wrote a document about tithing, in such document he states that giving the 10% tithe in the Bible was and has always been regarding only edible things and not giving money for tithing and that there is no place in the Bible that states that money is to be given for tithing. There are many other ministers that also preach that the tithe was always edible things according to God's law of what to give for tithing and not money. I have even heard a Jewish Rabbi lecture that the Jewish tithe from the old testament was always edible things from the land or animals, I can not think of anyone that would know more about the old laws of the old testament about tithing then a Rabbi, further the Rabbi stated that the act of giving money for tithing is something that only some Christian ministers have come up with to get money from people and that to give money for tithing is not Biblical according to the old testament. Yes, people in the old testament sometimes gave offerings also of money or gold, etc., but the things given were given as free offerings. The new testament tells us we are to give FREE WILL OFFERINGS, so if a person gives 5% or 10% or 50% or 100% of their monetary income that money is a FREE WILL OFFERING and not a tithe even if 10% of the money was given. I have asked a few tithing preaching ministers as well as some non tithing ministers have also asked where in the Bible it states to give money for tithing in any part of the Bible and no tithing minister has been able to show this any where in the old or new testament. And that is why it appears some people that may have read part of the Bible have not read the whole Bible it seems. If you have read the Bible then you should be knowledgeable that there is no place in any part of the Bible that says money was to be given for tithing, just try and look it up yourself and you will see it can not be found. You ask for some verses in the new testament , please read Hebrews, Chapter 7, verse 5 "And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:" and verse 11 "If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek, and be called after the order of Aaron ?" and verse 12 "For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law." verse 18 and 19 where it is written "For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof." "For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God", and 26 and 27, "For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens." "Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself." Or, Romans 10 verse 4 "For Christ is the end of the law for righteous to every one that believeth." and Matthew 5 verse 17, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil." Romans 6 verse 14 "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace." Romans 7 verse 6 "But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter." Romans 10 verse 4 "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believth." 2nd Corinthians verse 20 "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept." and 23 "But every man in his own order Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming." Also, Galations Chapter 3, verses 10 to 14, "10. For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14. That the blessings of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." From what I see the tithing laws are gone.

    How is the Church supposed to pay its staff do outreach without money

  8. SparklePeace Post author

    If people who say they believe God supplies all of their needs really believe God they would not need to ask another person for money. God would provide knowing we need what we need. Those who use the word of God for money do not really believe God is real these people only want money because they are greedy and will never be satisfied. If these greedy people received 1 million dollars a day for their ministry this would not be enough because greedy people will always be in want the bible says this as well.

    YouTube is free. Those that have videos asking to help the ministry to do videos which are free to upload and websites are not expensive they do not need money to tell others about the bible.
    I do videos and I do not accept money for the word of God. God has given me the wisdom to acquire wealth without using His Words from the Bible to make money.

    Jesus paid taxes and churches do not want to pay taxes. God knows their hearts most of the people who use the bible for income do not want to pay taxes so they make their income this way to avoid paying taxes. I believe the churches should pay taxes just like everyone else If so there would be fewer people using the Word of God for an income if they had to pay taxes on what they made. If they had to help the people in their churches as they did in the bible and not get any income for their own needs fewer people will use the word of God for a means of living.

    Matthew 22: 17 Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”

    18 But Jesus [a]perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test Me, you hypocrites? 19 Show Me the tax money.”

    So they brought Him a denarius.

    20 And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?”

    21 They said to Him, “Caesar’s.”

    And He said to them, “Render[b] therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 22 When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way.

    Acts 8: 19 saying, “Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”

    20 But Peter said to him, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money! 21 You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God. 22 Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. 23 For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity.”

    Some people always ask where in the new testament does it say that we are no longer under the law of tithing, I give these verses as examples:
    Hebrews, Chapter 7, verse 5 "And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:" and verse 11 "If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek, and be called after the order of Aaron ?" and verse 12 "For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law." verse 18 and 19 where it is written "For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof." "For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God", and 26 and 27, "For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens." "Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself." Or, Romans 10 verse 4 "For Christ is the end of the law for righteous to every one that believeth." and Matthew 5 verse 17, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil." Romans 6 verse 14 "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace." Romans 7 verse 6 "But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter." Romans 10 verse 4 "For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believth." 2nd Corinthians verse 20 "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept." and 23 "But every man in his own order Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming." Also, Galations Chapter 3, verses 10 to 14, "10. For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13.

That the blessings of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith."

    In Deuteronomy Chapter 14 verses 24-26 is where God instructs people not to bring any money for tithing,“24.And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee: 25. Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto which the LORD thy God shall choose: 26. And thou shalt bestow that money for whatssoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household.”

    Great video that I think is rooted in Scripture. I have found that the answers given here are shared with other notable leaders of churches and Christian thought professors, and I think that's something I can get behind. I sometimes think about how I can't always get to the church or that 10% is a lot of money to give if you don't have a lot of money to give in the first place, especially if you're someone like me who has my family that's growing and you aren't financially stable at that time. Tithing is, as said in the video, not something that you are obligated to do and even if you want to do it, not being able to because of immediate circumstances just not something to be ashamed of if you feel so compelled to be a part of a giving campaign I'm sure you can find a way to be of use if you don't have enough money volunteering to help a fundraiser or using your talents to build something for a charity auction that would be desirable that would be auctioned off 4 money that goes to a charitable cause is just as good as giving money directly. But more to the point, instead of adopting a mindset of I have to give 10% to the church, take the mindsets someone who looks for opportunities to give and to put money into causes they believe in. If you are an orphan perhaps you can look at orphanages and see if there's financial needs or something you can do in person to help an orphanage meets their goals. If you are a survivor of an abusive relationship no matter what its context, you should look into helping those who have experienced similar things in their own lives at being a resource for those people because no amount of money can see old wounds that is created from an abusive relationship but someone that understands those life experiences and has come out of them stronger make for invaluable resources. Perhaps you are a talented construction oriented person in are able to build houses, go on a mission trip that helps build houses for people that have nothing and watch store time be the biggest thing that impacts a small community in a roll part of the world. most of the time it's easier to give a little bit of money than it is to actually put yourself out there and I'd wager that in some cases your time is worth significantly more than the dollars you give. Be a cheerful giver with whatever it is you choose to give when you choose to give it. Just don't be conceited and selfish with your time and your money because I'm sure there were times when you needed something and somebody else stepped up for you that had no obligations. I believe it's those people that we are called not to be in the New testament.

    These guys couldn’t be more wrong and the sad thing is they are supposed to be biblical scholars !!!!!!! First of all the law of tithing was not established by the Mosaic law, tithing was first established by Job!!!!!! Job is the first book written not Genesis.. Before the law of Moses men sacrificed to God after the law was given the Levite was the only ones allowed to make sacrifice for the people That means Job lived before Moses and Abram because the text states that he was the riches man in the east not Abram!!!!!!!! So Job made sacrifices according to the number of children that he had now go Count how many children he had!!!!! It’s “10” one sacrifice would have been 10% but he did 100% over the sufficient amount that’s why he was rich and God put a hedge of protection around him and his family !!!!!! The same blessings that God said he would do in Malachi 3:10-11. Abram gave tithe to “Melchizedek” the high priest Genesis 14:20 then God blessed him and changed his name To Abraham!!!!!!! So the law of tithing was Established before the circumcision!!!!!!! Tithing was and is a natural & spiritual law that God incorporated into mosaic law to make sure that Israel would be protected and blessed by him but only if they obeyed!!!!!!!!! Let me give you a New Testament example to the church Paul wrote these words to the Roman Church in Romans11:16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.!!!!!!! Paul says the tithe is Holy and so is the Lump meaning the rest of your income is blessed by God!!!!! He’s talking to the church my friend… you can live off give and it shall be given and if you sow sparingly you shall also reap sparingly but if you sow bountifully you shall reap bountifully but those spiritual laws want make your income Holy unto God nor is he obligated to rebuke the devourer for your sake only tithing brings the Promises of Of God to thithers not sowing and reaping !!!!! Read the Bible for yourself and don’t be fooled by these guys with no Holy Spirit leading them in the scriptures!!!!!!!!

    Human need is greater than religious ritual, Jesus taught this. Paying a tithe to a local Church is a tradition of men, the Jews were commanded to tithe but there was three tithes not just one

  20. Evans Oppong Post author

    The only condition tithe changed to money was when the distance to the preist's place is too long but there are more instructions given :
    Deuteronomy 14:24-26 
    24 But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by the Lord your God and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where the Lord will choose to put his Name is so far away), 25 then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place the Lord your God will choose.26 Use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink,or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice.
    Not performing the rights and rituals of the old covenant doesn not mean it irrelevant, rather we have to understand that those laws were of sin and death so we should know and keep away from the mistakes of our forefathers :
    1 Corinthians 10:11-14
    11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come.
    12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 13 No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful;he will not let you be tempted[b] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[c] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

    Many Christians are not aware of this, but in the New Testament, tithing reappears in the priesthood of Jesus. Hebrews 6:19 speaks about “the inner sanctuary behind the curtain” (NIV) and tells us,

    “Jesus, who went before us, has entered on our behalf He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek” (v. 20 NIV).

    So, Jesus is our High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.

    In the next chapter of Hebrews, the writer explained the part tithing played in the priesthood of Melchizedek and in the high priesthood of Jesus:

    “Just think how great he [Melchizedek] was: Even the patriarch Abraham gave him a tenth of the plunder! Now the law requires the descendants of Levi who become priests to collect a tenth from the people — that is, their brothers — even though their brothers are descended from Abraham. This man, however, did not trace his descent from Levi, yet he collected a tenth from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. [Notice the emphasis on the tenth.] And without doubt the lesser person is blessed by the greater. [Abraham was lesser than Melchizedek because he was blessed by Melchizedek.] In the one case [the case of the Lord], the tenth is collected by men who die; but in the other case, by him who is declared to be living” Hebrews 7:4-8 NIV.

    The priesthood of Melchizedek is an eternal priesthood because the one who is in this priesthood never dies. The writer states Jesus lives forever as a High Priest after the order of Melchizedek. And in His priesthood He receives the tithes of His people.

    Derek Prince On Experiencing Gods Power by Derek PrinceWe can see that tithing has a continuous history from Abraham onwards: from Abraham to Jacob, to the nation of Israel, and then to the ministry of Jesus as our High Priest. According to Scripture, when we set aside our first tenth and offer our tithe to Jesus, we are actually acknowledging that Jesus is our High Priest according to the priesthood of Melchizedek. This is one of the ways we are able to honour Him and acknowledge Him as our High Priest.” Derek Prince

    Before the law there was Abraham, who gave a tenth of all his goods to Melchizedek. Christians are children of Abraham and Jesus is the High Priest in the order of Melchizedek! The church is the body of Christ…are you catching my drift. The law was written because the Israelites were immature.

    This interpretation seems most valid. I myself have always tithed at 10% and much more and God has always met all my financial needs. Praise God.

  28. Mark Nagy Post author

    He is wrong about not paying tithes . Because tithing existed before the mosaic covenant . Abraham paid tithes to the king of Salem . Read more on that .also Malachi promises blessings to those who pay tithes.

  29. Mark16:15 Post author

    Here's where the professor was misleading. He said "we are no longer under the old covenant". "We" as in Gentiles, were NEVER under the old covenant. God made that covenant with the ancient Israelites and them only, not with the Egyptians, Phoenicians, Hittites or any other Gentiles. Back then, it was a death penalty for Israelites who bowed down to foreign gods; however Gentiles could worship idols all they wanted, and God overlooked it (Ac 17:29-30).

    Not only are Christians NOT required to tithe under the new covenant, but those who do so, who justify the practice by what is said in the old Jewish law, they will go to hell (Gal 5:4). Jesus was serious about NOT mixing the old with the new (Lk 5:36-39).

    Jesus never abolished the Mosaic law. This betrays any knowledge of Jesus in his Jewish context.

    Gentiles are not under the law though. But obedience to Jesus and entrance into his movement meant giving away everything.

  41. jeremy baker Post author

    Tithing is part of the Law covenant or mosaic law. The bible is very clear that Jesus fulfilled the law and "nailed it to the torture stake " . A new law was given to replace it and the 1000+ laws it was made up of, and the new law is simple.: love the true God w ur whole heart and soul. Second, love ur neighbor as yourself. About giving, well Jesus used the illustration of the the widow giving 2 small coins of little value- the lesson? Give what u can and what your heart motivates u to give. If you give out of your love to God , then that is what matters to Him.

  44. The Bible Study Helper Post author

    In the book of numbers begin tithing with money and gold or silver .
    Livestock and produce are set aside for both clergy and the poor . Alms giving of money and a ten percent portion of produce are consistently requested in both old and new testament .
    Infact Jesus request that people give their wealth to the poor and follow him .
    The words "charity and the giving of alms " are specifically encouraged by the very mouth of Jesus multiple times in the new testament . Charity and alms giving is one of the single most pillars of Christianity .
    Peter following tradition of the Jewish people and Jesus also collects money from the sale of individual personal wealth to supply the church clergy and alms giving .
    Paul also takes collections of money for relief of poverty and famine .
    If you don't think giving money to both clergy and the poor are not a part of the church .
    All that I can say is " welcome to Christianity".

  48. Shelton Roseboro Post author

    In Hebrews chapter six it says; Let us go on to perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and faith towards God….Whether you call it tithing, giving or alms, it still should be done to the glory of God and they all are to leave one's life (hands and heart) for the glorification of God and God alone. As Simple As That. It's not how much, it's with what heart. Whether one percent or one hundred percent. It amazes me how people are duped by a number or a percentage and then try to dignify it. Everything that I have concerning righteousness actually belongs to God. For our righteousnesses are as filthy rags to God.If you're Holy Ghost filled or not, it shouldn't matter if God asked for 100%. Jesus the same yesterday, today and forever. Jesus Loves You. God Bless You. And God speed.

    That is not correct. The levitical priests were forbidden by God to take money for themselves, the 10% was purely agricultural, and the food was bought into the storehouse to feed the priests, who worked for nothing. Anything of monetary value was used for the upkeep of the temple

    I think it is not a problem for us to disagree but it is a problem when some in the church are guilting people to Tithe and using scripture out of content to manipulate the people to give 10% behold I have sent you out as sheep amongst wolves says the Lord.. I pray for our people's discernment in Jesus name.. Gods true people are all cheerful givers.

    "Since that (Mosaic) Covenant has passed away." Are you stupid? Just plain blind? You DO know that Jews still exist, living the Mosaic Covenant every day, which was given by HaShem Himself. It even says so in your Christian Bible. Jeez.

  54. Tellsplatte W Post author

    You also have to consider where the giving went. 1/3 to the poor, 1/3 to the windows and foreigners, and 1/3 to the Levites. And the 10% was given every 3rd year. The math comes out to 3.33% per year. We already give more than 10% to the poor, needy, and foreigners via Federal and State taxes. So that leaves 1.11% for the Levites. To be legalistic, 3% to the church is more than the 10% every 3rd year given to these three groups. Furthermore, several other tithing examples have nothing to do with giving to the church. Such tithes were spend by the family to buy food and alcoholic drinks and to celebrate. With that said, if we spend $ on a care group to buy food and drinks and study the Bible, that’s a form of tithing. Bottom line: give with a joyful heart and don’t heed the pastors who say that if you don’t give 10% gross from your pay that you are “stealing from God”.

  55. Willy Z Post author

    Like what if you just don’t want to tith because your greedy and care to much for the treasures here on earth . What did Jesus tell the rich man . Go sell all your possessions then come follow me . The rich man walked away all upset . The moral is . People are so attached to their money . Give to ceaser what is ceaser but give to God what is Gods. God doesn’t need your 10% but he did that to test the faith of the money and see where he stands when it comes to money . And a lot of people in the modern day fall short when it comes to money . Always trying to justify what God has said .

    The only reason Jesus talks about tithing is because He was still alive, so the new covenant wasn’t enacted yet.

    Heb. 9:16-17 AMP
    16 For where there is a will and testament involved, the death of the one who made it must be established, 17 for a will and testament takes effect [only] at death, since it is never in force as long as the one who made it is alive.

    Why we Christians hate when there is a money topic for God's wook or any kind of charity or just generosity? Isn't our lives itself belongs to him? Isn't God who has given us a healthy life and we don't nee to pay to hospitals for exchange of health? Isn't he the one fulfilling our needs ? You drives expensive cars but who's protecting you from accidents? Isn't he ? Isn't he providing us o2 sun rain and all other kinds of necessities for free? How about if he holds back oxygen just for half day? Do you really can convince me that this generous God don't deserve our small gratification and acknowledgement? Even our life? He deserve than our money. Our money isn't our sacrifice for him, the zillions money doesn't help us to praise him but tighte is just a little symbol to show our obedience. That's it. God could help the people you're required to help as he helped you, but he wants you to follow his character and practice and exercise " giving " and " sharing " just like him. Because he's kind and meek. That's the only mystery. He can give 10* you have to those in need but asking u to give because he likes to see you sharing.

    You guys should listen to Allen par and Myles munroe's version on tithing….. tithing isnt only about cash… God does not want your money . Everything belongs to Him… tithe also includes your time… 10% of it each day, everything that God blesses you with.. 10th of it belongs to Him…
    Theres also a scripture in the new testament that talks about bringing your tithe in the house of the Lord….that the men of God might not lack… in ephesians too the part that says "test the lord in this and see if He will not give you double measure pressed down and overflowing…" to me i think as a christian we should tithe" just not money but everything that God blesses you with dedicate it to Him

    We are not under mosaic law i agree but still we follow the rest of the commandments, we shouldnt be choosy on what we think is best for us…

    Giving to God dates at least as far back as Cain and Able and probably back to Adam and Eve.
    Genesis 4:3-5
    3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.

    4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
    5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

    ~~~~ Holy End-Time Prophecy 13:Tell Them MY Child, Tell Them for ME! ~~~~~~~

    This is from Prophecy 105, YAHUVEH said to put this up on all Prophecies from now on: I warned you a long time ago Elisabeth (Elisheva) not to name this Ministry after a man or a woman even before there was a Ministry. I put it in your spirit for none of this has been done by your hand, none of this has come forth from your mouth. It is from the Mouth of YAHUVEH that has given birth. It is from the Mouth of YAHUSHUA your MASHIACH that has given birth. It is from the Mouth of the RUACH ha KODESH your IMMAYAH that has given birth. If it had only been by your hand it would have failed long ago. It is by the SHKHINYAH GLORY’S Wind that blows across this earth, the Holy Wind of Revival, it is not by your breath or it would have failed. (Isaiah 42:8)

    In July 2010 YAHUVEH GOD also said to add the following from 2nd Chronicles before every Prophecy:

    2 Chronicles 36:16, “But they mocked the Messengers of GOD, despised HIS Words, and scoffed at HIS Prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against HIS people, till there was no remedy.”

    * * * * * * *

    These are the words the RUACH ha KODESH now puts back into my spirit for I am ordered to, “Tell them MY Child, tell them for ME.” 1/24/98 given to this Child, Warrior, Bride of YAHUSHUA ha MASHIACH.

    The Feast of Succoth requires to bring your tithe yearly.. Biblically in the OT there are 3 tithes.. Many do not believe this because they think the law is done away with…

    There is a tithe that you save up and use to travel to the place for the Feast of Succoth where it is used in celebration, feasting, enjoying and resting.. Then there's the tithe for the poor, the widow, and the orphans.. Then theres the Levitical.

    What people fail to realize is the Feast Days are also a prophetic and a literal dress rehearsal for when Yeshua returns and we rule with him in the 1000 yr Millennium.. We will in fact be tithing and coming once a year to bring our tithe before the Lord.. It will be commanded.. We will go back to an agricultural way of tithing, not the monitary system of today. Tithing is still for today but it is misunderstood because man has distorted the truth and the word of God.. Here's a commentaried response below from a vlog on tithing today.. I too agree with this response.

    It may be a consolation to those who find it hard to pay one tithe under our present system, to know that in Old Testament times there were actually three different kinds of tithe. Each one of these had a definite purpose, and although not all of them are enjoined upon the New Testament Christian, the study of the significance of each is highly recommended.

    The three different types are as follows:

    1. The Levitical, or sacred tithe (Num. 18: 21, 24).

    2. The tithe of the feasts (Deut. 14:22-27).

    3. The tithe for the poor (Deut. 14:28, 29).

    The first tithe, the one we trace back to Abra­ham (Gen. 14:18-20), is the sacred tithe, given to the Levites and priests for their service to the temple and the congregation in the Old Testa­ment. This is the tithe we continue to give under the priesthood of Melchizedek in the New Testa­ment. It is the tithe consecrated to God and the furtherance of the gospel and has, therefore, validity for all believers in Christ.

    The second tithe had an entirely different aspect, and we would do well to contemplate its meaning and purposes. Our enlightened gen­eration prides itself on its social laws and pro­visions. Even a superficial study of the tithing system reveals that several thousand years back, Israel had something that resembles the Christ­mas Club savings system, only with a much broader religious and social meaning. The Levitical law required that a Jew had to go up to Jerusalem on certain occasions. In reality this religious ordinance included a definite social provision—periods of vacation for the family. And how should the head of the household pro­vide for the vacation expense? By setting aside a second tithe, the one described in Deuteronomy 14:22-27, the tithe for the feasts. Thus the second tithe was dedicated to the good of man himself, for a vacation and specifically, a vaca­tion with a religious purpose, such as going to camp meeting.

    The third tithe was the tithe for the poor. According to our text in Deuteronomy 14:28, 29, this tithe was given only every third year. As the text states, the produce had to be laid up in "your towns" for the Levite, sojourner, father­less, and the widow. It suggests that the distribu­tion was not left to the individual but was a com­munity project to which everybody had to con­tribute. This tithe, therefore, was for the neigh­bor. Summarizing the three types of tithe in the Old Testament period we find a much broader concept of giving than we generally assume, giving that included first, God; second, man's own physical and spiritual welfare; and third, their neighbor's need. God, you, and your neigh­bor is a good trinity in planning one's giving.

    The Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus, men­tions the custom of paying three tithes: "In ad­dition to the two tithes which I have already directed you to pay each year, the one for the Levites and the other for the banquets, ye should devote a third every third year to the distribu­tion of such things as are lacking to widowed women and orphan children."—Antiquities iv. 240; Loeb ed

    Tithing was only done agriculturally. Not once in the bible does say it say give me 10 % of your money. Not once does it say go sell your produce and give me a 10th. Never. If it does your reading a lie. Stick to the nkjv or KJV ESv bible also seems ok but I always check with the kings James versions before anything. Some times I go as far back as the Hebrew words.
    The truth Is without tithing churches would cease to exist and very few would make it because there are very few who say hey "let's have church at the park or in the desert" so they have the nerve to say your stealing from God and that's a commandment and do there best to make you coerce you into giving when it clearly says to give as a cheerful giver and at your hearts degree. They warn of you having two masters ,money and God and you cannot serve the two when truly they are the ones living in that sin. Smh it alot of real churches out here. Becareful yall.

  77. R D Post author

    Omgosh! Tithes were never money but food. It was not only for the Levites, it was for the widows, orphans and the poor. Tithes were annual but every 3 years it should be collected for the last 3 cited above. So we do not know any levites, I believe we know lots of the last 3. Matthew 25:31-46.
    There were 5 Offerings, they were also food or animals for sacrifice, only one could be given money instead of food.
    There were also temple tax, which was used to take care of the temple. This one was money.

    I can't find a church because all the pastors add or delete from the Bible and teach false doctrine about tithing which is a lie. I wish I could find one Christian to walk the Earth with. Jesus said if you love me you will do my Fathers will. Everyone does their will thus they just honor Him with their lips. I have prayed for four years for at least one other so that two coming together in agreement can accomplish great things. I have counted the cost. I wish to pick up my cross and give my life for Jesus.

    I like this. This makes more sense than “you’re going to hell if you don’t tithe.” “God will bless you if you tithe your whole paycheck & stay without home utilities.” Then you give what you can, & they say you’re not giving enough because you don’t love God enough. When Pastors say stuff like that, it makes me not want to give because I feel like I’m only giving so God can bless me even though I know my heart doesn’t feel that way. It’s in my head so I’m not happy when I give.. I’ve always been told whatever you give with all your heart will be great to God…. & also if you give $$$ just to prove yourself to men or out of interest in something then God doesn’t count that…
    I don’t have a problem giving to a church who hosts events to help the community, their sheep, & go on missions to spread their Gospel. My church said they are not a charity neither the government to be helping people. If you leave because of his toxicity, he says you are just sinful & don’t want to hear the truth! I have no problem funding the church, I have a problem with the pastor bluntly saying you will not enter heaven because you didn’t tithe. They don’t care about your offerings. Even if you gave less than 10% for offerings with all your heart, even if you praised God with all your heart & repented that night, even if you love everyone & treat everyone with respect, JUST because you didn’t tithe, you lost your salvation. It drained me. As much as I thought I knew God, he made me think God was only good to those who tithe. I was literally over draft in the bank, & his daughter had the audacity to come up to me personally during offerings to demand money from me & she knew I was broke because I even cleaned her house to make ends meet. They preach if you don’t have money then go sell your belongings to raise money to give to them. Or to throw in your gold watch or wedding band in the bucket so God can bless you. It felt more like a business than a place to refresh my soul…. I no longer attend. & it breaks my heart but I couldn’t do it anymore.

  82. Demetrius Middleton Post author

    He says Jesus COMMANDS tithing in Matthew – i think it's extremely suspect to leave out the verse(s). He mentions other specific versus but then with respect to where he is saying Jesus himself commands it, and uses a word so strong as commands, he conveniently only provides an entire book of scripture as opposed to a verse. It sounds like he MIGHT be saying COMMENDS instead of COMMANDS, but then it sounds like he says the same word in his follow-up to that example and in that context it would only make sense to have used COMMANDS.

    I wish it was more clear what word exactly he was saying and even what verse he's referring to specifically. Because in the first context it would make a huge difference what choice of words he uses and also what verse specifically he's referring to. He uses a verse to highlight literally every other scriptural reference except one where Jesus is DIRECTLY addressing the topic of the video.

    The lack of ability to be able to tell which word he used as well as which verse he's using as an example to highlight what Jesus himself had to say makes this video extremely frustrating.
