Tithe: Is It Compulsory For Christians?

Let us discuss with open mind:

Almost every Preachers, Pastors, Bishops, Reverends, Evangelists. Shepherds

coerce their congregation into paying tithe.

Are Christians mandated to pay tithe under the new covenant

Also, what are they really using the money from tithe for

Those who want to remain in bondage are entitled to it but don't EVER call me a "robber" just because I refuse to fill your belly and that of your "leader, pastor, whatever" because our Lord Jesus has no need for money, he OWNS the whole World and the heavenly galaxy including you. If you can't show scriptural proof but want to remain a zombie, leave me out of your delusion. If tithe was so important like the present day pimps/oles(we were warned about them so no surprises here) Jesus and his apostles would have addressed it like they did giving from the heart, helping the widows/orphans/poor and LOVE for one another among other teachings. It doesn't surprise me one bit because there are folks who spend a long time in jail, get released only to commit a crime shortly after that and go right back to jail. You have a right to use your resources any how you see fit but don't call me names just because I won't be cajoled into this foolery.

I am not a mugu hence I don't accept twisted scripture as truth even if it came from the mouth of a high respected pastor. As far as I am concerned all compulsary tithe preaching pastors are either ignorant or they are crooks. The bible is clear on the defunct law of tithes I cannot be deceived.

Please quote one single scripture that remotely even suggests that christians should tithe. Remember malachi was quoting from the defunct jewish law which was not passed down to christians.

Becos christianity as been highjacked by several gangsters who are care only about their own bellies. There were several prophesies in the bible that the faith would be highjacked by false teachers so you shouldn't be suprised.

Jesus commended the old woman who put one mite to the altar. That was the only time Jesus commended any type of monetary offering done to religious leaders.

Tithing was never preached by the apostles, or by Jesus. Jesus said, "Give to Ceaser's that which is Ceaser's and God's what is God's" That means support God's work on earth in whatever way you can, if 1 mite is all you have to offer God accepts it from the heart.

Tithing doesn't determine salvation. Living for God to our fullest extent, however, does.

Aside from the controversy whether or not we should continue paying tithes,we have to look at tithe frequency at which tithe was paid in the Bible.

melchizedek tithe-once

levitical tithe-once in three years(deut 14:28,deut 26:12)

how come we have daily,monthly and weekly tithing in today's christianity

Having read your last post i see you have scaled down on you initial dogmatic approach to tithes and rescinded a bit on the heresy, i suspect this may partly be dues to the exposition i did on tithes and the several lessons i gave you on the topic, however you are still holding on to this false teaching albeit loosely hence your new definition of it. The truth is that tithing is absolutely irrelevant to christian hence the reason why the apostles that were mandated to establish christianity NEVER preached it, in fact they went on to annull it in Hebrews 7:5-19. Well i thank God for your life as i see you are gradually moving away from the deluded heretical doctrine.

@dafidixone,

It'd rather be good if you support your views with some verses from the Bible.

How come Jesus or other apostles did not command tithing to Christians?

Jesus and other apostles only talked about giving to the less fortunate (i.e people that are poor and in need)

and also offering.

Tithe is compulsory for Christians. But we must understand what tithes is as against what some "men of God" preach today. 10% of your Increase. What is an increase? An increase is the difference between your Old Income or property belonging and the present same.

For example, your salary is 100,000 in xyz year or month, when it is increased to say 150,000 , 50,000 become your increase. If you owe a property worth 10,000,000 in a particular area in xyz year and by valuation the cost of that property rise to say 20,000,000 then your increase is 10,000,000.

That is my humble perspective of what bible call tithes. Having undeerstand this, we must not delay in paying it to a bible beleiving church and obtain the blessing of the man of God in charge.

That is My perspective of the bible interpretation, not neccessarily to conform with any church policy.

Christians,

Do not be a dumb folk ,

Don't always believe what your pastors tell you.

Make findings yourselves. Read the Bible.

There is nowhere God asked anybody for a tenth of his income or earnings.

Your pastors & bishops are only fleecing you (the sheep), scamming you of

your hard earned money to live a good life.

Tithe was only meant to be paid by the Isrealites bc of the Levites.

How long will you allow your pastors/bishops to use Malachi to make money outta your pocket?

Apart from the fact that it is not even required for christians to tithe as there is no christian teaching to support this heresy in the bible, tithers are actually at risk of loosing their salvation by trying to uphold an obsolete law. Galatians 5:4

What even under the old covenant was the purpose of Tithes? What I mean is, Is it a way to attract the financial boons from God or as a means to get remission of sins or what?
