At the end of the year, folks who have been paying their tithes and contributing to charity usually get a report detailing their contributions for tax purposes. I even understand that there are some who view charity giving as an avenue to dodge the high taxes usually imposes on high income earners in America. So, in essence that defeats the underlying reason to donate to charity, which is to assist the underpriviliged with no ulterior motives. But with regards to paying tithes and then filing taxes to claim part of it back from the government, is it acceptable in the eyes of God or not?
What do you think?
