Think Tithing! Those who think Tithing is not in the Bible have not read the Bible!

Related 3 thoughts on “Think Tithing!” Add yours Dear brothers and sisters, Those who think tithing is a standard of giving that applies to Gentile Christians on this side of the cross have not read the New Testament. Allow me to offer a very brief counter point to why tithing is NOT the standard for giving for believers (http://www.stewardshipministries.org/blog/2012/04/27/tithes-and-offerings/) and then provide you with what the New Testament does teach us about giving (http://www.stewardshipministries.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Better-Way-Giving-Sermon-Guide.pdf). Decide for yourselves what God teaches us is the basis for Christian giving for us today. May we all become motivated, joyful, reliable, extravagant, selfless and expectant givers as the NT teaches us to be. Reply Of course tithing is in the Bible. God commanded three different tithes. Those who think the scriptures teach that tithing came from income have not studied the topic very well. Those who think that money was accepted as the Biblical tithe are in error. The Biblical tithe always came from God’s increase of food from crops and animals. The increase came directly from God. Man can cultivate the land, plant the seed, and water the seed, but only God can turn that seed into fruit. Few understand the Biblical tithe. When God gave the Israelites the promised land, He RESERVED, for Himself, a tenth of the crops and every tenth animal (Leviticus 27:30, 32). They NEVER did belong to the Israelites. In other words, the tithe was from God’s increase of FOOD, not from man’s income. It was a way to distribute FOOD to the Levites and priests who did NOT inherit any land. No one, not even the farmers, tithed from their income. The farmers made their income by SELLING and/or barter-exchanging their crops and animals but did NOT tithe on that income. Today, ALL born-again believers are priests. ALL of us are called to be disciples of the Lord. No one of us is greater than another. Our bodies are the Temple where the Spirit dwells. According to the scriptures, priests do not tithe (Numbers 18). Reply To see how much you really know about what the Bible says about tithing take this 25 true/false quiz to see.
