4-minute video on ‘What does the Bible say about tithing?’ – Here’s the truth!
Amen, in addition to this video. The tithes in the Old Testament also meant giving 10% of their produce, food, herbs, spices, and miscellaneous agriculture. Not 10% from a paycheck, as many wrongfully teach today. The Word of God never changes, but the way we do grocery shopping and commerce have. If we were to Biblically tithe today, our church sanctuaries would be full of spoiled moldy food.
But what about being faithful to our church?
Similarly to how Christians are to submit or subject ourselves to governing authorities, we should also subject ourselves to the office of the Elder in our churches. However, not if they go against the Scriptures (or are unbiblical). Or when they command us to do what the Scriptures forbid or forbid us to do what the Scriptures command.
Just as it is sinfully wrong for a man to verbally or physically abuse his wife. It is sinister for a minister to misuse God’s Word to fiscally abuse Christ’s bride. Whether she be a man’s spouse, or God’s spouse (Christ’s bride), heavy-handedness, heavy shepherding, or lording over the flock is spousal abuse.
The below video explains what “tithing” is, but more importantly, what tithing is not. The covetous pastors seen in this video subject their congregations to unbiblical legalistic bondage. I implore you to be free from the bondage of greedy charlatans.
What’s the solution to this problem?
"So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver." - 2 Corinthians 9:7
