Israel was to bring God the first-fruits tithe of the harvest. They did this in anticipation of a full and plentiful harvest. When we give God the first of what we make, we do so in faith expecting a full harvest from our labors. Therefore, tithing is a principle of faith and not law. Notice, it is the first-fruits and not what we have left after we have paid everything else. This makes tithing an act of faith, which God always honors Hebrews , James When we honor Him with the first-fruits of our increase, God causes an abundance of increase to come our way, materially as well as spiritually and emotionally.
The tithe belongs to the storehouse. The tithe goes to the priest enabling him to have time to prepare properly for your spiritual diet. That is why the tithe is to go to your local church or the place you get fed spiritually. If you do not have a local church at this time, your tithe should go where you are getting your spiritual nourishment.
The same is true of some pastors who are being fed spiritually by other ministries. You should be giving your tithe to the ministry and spiritual covering that feeds you. No longer should anyone accept this as new testament teaching as it relates to giving. In the New Testament Hebrews Chapter 7 clears up the error of teaching tithe and offering for the basis of giving once and for all.
In verse 1 we are reminded Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of the most high God. In verse 1 we also are reminded that their meeting happened as Abraham was returning from battle and his victory over a group of kings that took his nephew Lot. Then we see in scripture the significance of who Melchizedek is and why Abraham gave him a tithe. Verses 2 and 3 lay out who Melchizedek was….. Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.
There is no record of his father or mother or any of his ancestors—no beginning or end to his life. He remains a priest forever, resembling the Son of God. Melchizedek was a great man of God, however, he was still a man. Having to offer sacrifices and offerings to God for his own sins and on behalf of sins of his people. Melchizedek functioned as a type of christ being that he was both king and priest simultaneously. However, because Melchizedek was just a man, Hebrews chapter 7 continues to breakdown the difference between the position a mortal man held in priesthood as it relates to the superior priesthood of Jesus today.
This was his increase as it related to what was gained from winning the war that included winning back his nephew Lot. In verse 5 we see why collecting the tenth from the people was required. It was commanded according to the law. However, we know that Adam, Abel, Noah, and all righteous men before Abraham offered sacrifices and offerings to God to atone for their sins and the sins of others.
Because this act was righteous before God it was included in the law given unto Moses. Under the law, the sons of Levi operated the office of priesthood. From there we find in verse 8 the scripture further pointing out the fact that it was mortal men who received these tithes.
In verse 11 we begin to see the need for a greater priesthood. This is clearly stating the fact that if the next priesthood would not follow what was stated under old testament law, then a new law must be established. This is a critical understanding that we must grasp from the scriptures. In verses is where we see explained to us how Jesus follows after the order of Melchizedek and not after the sons of Levi.
Finally, verses provide a complete overview of why we have a better testament today because of Jesus…. Tithings and offerings were paid and given as a result of our sins towards God. The offerings were a sacrificial atonement made through blood sacrifice only.
Facts about Tithing from Malachi 3:8-12
We do not continue in this act today because Jesus has made the ultimate atonement for the sins of the world by dying on the cross for us and shedding His innocent blood. The same must be said now regarding tithing. We can cease from paying tithes today because our priest is Jesus! Who is not a man that is in need of our crops, agriculture, or money to sustain Himself for the office of priesthood.
He has sacrificed for sin once and for all. The debt has been paid. So there is nothing we can do or need to do to pay it. By faith in Jesus, we accept the new testament that is found in Him. As a result, we must fully operate within the laws of this new testament and not continue to operate under the law of an old testament that has been replaced. We are not paying a tax. Or being commanded to give a set percentage.
Sure we are to hold our own convictions and seek to persude others from the scriptures if we feel it needs to be done. This is why I entered the fray. No individual has the right to declare someone an unbeliever. So it takes a huge amount of discernment to determine where someone is in their walk. I do not believe in apostolic sucession and suspect you do not either, and for individuals on this forum to take the right of ex communication upon themselves is presumptious.
If someone is caught in sin, as you believe tithing is, then you are to restore them gently, looking to yourself, but not to insist they castrate themselves right off the bat. There are procedures in place following Matthew 18 to deal with church discipline and ex communication. The other thing I find disconcerting is that there is a great eagerness on some to assume they can read minds. I assume you are reasonable and have a clear conscience before God in how you order your giving. It is a personal act of worship. Whatever you put into the offering plate is only a token of your heart.
I assume you have reasoned your position from the scriptures and give Biblical weight to each part of your theology.
That to you somethings are far more important than your theology of tithing. Not that convictions on specific issues are unimportant. Jesus should consume our hearts. We should love Him more than anything. We are such continual debtors to His mercy and owe Him everything. Some doctrines are clearer than others, some are determined only by comparing scripture with scripture, such as the Trinity. And like the Trinity some doctrines may take time and much careful study over many years to solidify.
Finally the arguments many of the forum participants bring against tithing can be better reasoned. I feel many of the texts used by forum members were wrenched from their contexts and plastered onto things they do not belong to. That seeming disrespect for scripture really bothers me. So a possible line of reasoning can go like this. I believe the practice of tithing is no longer valid in our current times because Melchizadek was a type of Christ. Abraham was looking forward to Christ and showed his devotion to Christ and His future sacrifice by givng an offering.
Or we could say the purpose of the tithe was to provide for the Levites as they had no portion in the land but were scattered within it. The Levites no longer exist and so the tithe is no longer needed for their upkeep. The New Testament now says those who steal should steal no longer but work so that they may be able to share with others in need. On the other hand in the support of the tithe, we may say that since Melchizadek was a type of Christ and Abraham is our spiritual father since we have the faith of Abraham we are to follow his axample because unlike circumcision his tithing action was not replaced by something else.
So in tithing we are giving to Christ because of His deliverance. The duties of the Levites, devoting themselves to the word of God and prayer, is now the job of pastors or teaching elders and so tithing is the means God uses for their support. In either case, those who preach the gospel are to get their living from the gospel. A non tither can just as easily fall into the rut of self justification as can a tither. We must allow scripture to search us as our hearts are so prone to self deception.
One practical implication is this. It speaks really poorly of us as the people of God to see our ministers, the faithful ones, not the flashy TV guys, who labor in the word, who pour their lives into ours, who groan with us in our struggles, to be paid barely enough to keep it all together. We are to esteem them highly because of their work and pray for them. We are not to muzzle them while they are threshing out the grain. We are to obey the scriptures in providing for them.
The way that is worded indicates that the king of Sodom was claiming that the people and the goods belonged to him, but he offered the goods to Abram. It would normally have been the custom that the victor owns the spoils, but normally the spoils would have belonged to the enemy. Russell Earl Kelly, pages Genesis KJV 22And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth, 23That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: 24Save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.
Notice in verses 23 and 24 Abram also acknowledges that the goods belonged to the king of Sodom. But the king of Sodam offered that Abram could keep the goods for himself. Abram declined the offer. By not accepting any of the goods for himself, Abram was putting all his faith in God to provide for him rather than man. Therefore, it is clear that both the king of Sodom and Abram acknowledged that the spoils of war did NOT belong to Abram, yet he gave a tenth of the spoils to King Melchizedek. Had Abram not given the tenth, he would have gone against custom. Conclusion: Abram did NOT give a tenth of his income, or his wealth.
That is NOT an example of tithing for Christians to follow today. By declining to keep any of the goods for himself, Abram showed his faith that God would provide. That is the example of faith that Christians should be following. Furthermore, the law did NOT require a tenth of war spoils to be given, so to say that tithing was before the law and then in the law is not true. What Abram did was NOT even codified into the later law.
There is no better or lesser among us. God has not designated any born-again believers to collect His tithe. I find it quite offensive that pastors have appointed themselves to be the receiver of what belongs to God. After all, the pastor says the tithe belongs to God. Then he appoints himself to receive the tithe!!! I have seen you debate frequently and in great detail why the Tithe is valid, but I have not seen you make a case against Tithing. I wonder why you make this claim, but continue to argue for Tithing, while dismissing what everyone else says as an attack against your spirituality.
You display no respect for anyone, yet expect everyone to not only respect you, but agree with you. Gary, I have been considering your comments carefully these many hours and wanted to deal with them in a thorough manner. I will try to follow your reasoning here. You are dealing with only two of many points I raised. They do tie together as they were addressed in previous posts, even though the original article dealt only with tithing. I am grateful someone is seeking to understand tithing from the scriptures that directly address it and not importing unrelated scriptures from other places.
I have not had your experiences. My pastors have always been underpaid, over worked, underappreciated, godly men. This is not meant as a pat answer. OK As far as your line of thinking is concerned. We can both open up the same passages and work through them. We can both agree Abraham and Melchizedek were real people. That this is the first time the tithe is mentioned in the bible.
That this incident occurred before the ten commandments, circumcision, instructions for the formal sacrifices. The question you brought up about ownership is important though. How could Melchizedek, as priest of the Most High God, receive stolen property? It has to be that the goods Abraham gave really were his to give. Otherwise God would be violating His own law. Who was Abraham giving the tithe to? The scriptures refer to Melchizedek three times as priest of God Most High.
The repetition is striking. That same word Jehovah is used in his call in Genesis Jehovah is the special covenant name God uses with His people. There is no doubt as to Who gave the deliverance and Who Melchizedek represents. Was Abraham giving this tithe as an act of worship in gratitude to God for a massive deliverance, or did King Melchizedek demand it from him?
It was freely given. Melchizedek gave the bread and wine and blessings first. Abraham responded. Melchizedek gave glory to God for the victory, why should Abraham give glory to a man, even though he is a king? So Abraham gave the tithe to God via His priest in unforced worship. Abraham is a positive example of tithing.
About the priesthood. You make two points. Let me see if this is what you mean. You are saying because we are a royal priesthood and have taken over the office of priest, we do not tithe because Old Testament priests did not tithe. Is that what those verses mean in context though? That we can tell others about how God brought us out of darkness into light? We are to offer up spiritual sacrifices. What exactly are they?
A reference to Hebrews13 may be helpful here. This is the cluster mentioned. And the priest, the son of Aaron, shall be with the Levites when the Levites receive tithes, and the Levites shall bring up the tenth of the tithes to the house of our God, to the chambers of the storehouse. For the sons of Israel and the sons of Levi shall bring the contribution of the grain, the new wine and the oil, to the chambers; there are the utensils of the sanctuary, the priests who are ministering, the gatekeepers, and the singers.
Thus we will not neglect the house of our God. And your offering shall be reckoned to you as the grain from the threshing floor or the full produce from the wine vat. Out of all your gifts you shall present every offering due to the LORD, from all the best of them, the sacred part from them. And you may eat it anywhere, you and your households, for it is your compensation in return for your service in the tent of meeting. And you shall bear no sin by reason of it, when you have offered the best of it.
But you shall not profane the sacred gifts of the sons of Israel, lest you die. Levites tithe. The specific offerings given to the priests— guilt, sin, peace, ordination are all divided in some way. A holy portion is burnt up before God and the rest of the offering is for Aaron and his sons. The first fruits given to Aaron are not used for a burnt offering but seem to be given totally to him. When the Levites were given cities within Israel, they were only given pasture lands around them.
Six cities out of the total number were open for the manslayer to flee to, so they were not really totally their own. The bread of the presence is for the priests who minister in the temple and is eaten after it is set out before the Lord. Even so, we see an example of what that means in merciful practice. When David came to the temple and was hungry, the priest gave him the bread of the presence. Christ commended him for it. One thing has been helpful in our discussion, is it has forced me to examine scripture even more, and has convinced me even more of my own position.
Wes, I have not declared you an unbeliever as you have done so freely to others, or taken the role of final authority in the church. I have not used violent language towards you because of your beliefs. It is up to you to do the spade work and defend your own position from scripture. I have dealt with you and Gary with kindness and consistancy. You, yourself, have not responded in like kind. You have made no effort to use biblical reasoning but have dismissed anything counter to your position without bible proof. You have written quickly with out careful deliberation.
Giving him the respect I had hoped you would give any professing believer. You need to spend more time thinking and praying before shooting back. One thing you need to know. I will not be bullied into a position if I am convinced the scripture does not teach it. God have mercy. All I did was attempt to refute you, as you have done with everyone here. Then you say you respect others but that no one respects you.
Then you said that you could make a case for or against Tithing. I asked you to make a case against Tithing, yet you have not done so. You said you respect others but that no one has respected you. But you have done the opposite. I again ask you what you ask of others: To think and pray about your beliefs before you start discussing the issues. And to at least consider what others post, even if you do not agree with them. I have given a great deal of thought and prayer to the issue of Tithing. I used to believe what the Pastors taught. I used to do what they told me to do, believing that they were right.
If you would like to discuss the issue of Tithing with me, I will gladly do so. If you say something I disagree with, I will tell you so and why. But I will not be like you, and disregard everything you say simply because I disagree. It is not violent or disrespectful to point out religious error, and I do not feel that any of the men here have been violent with their answers.
I think that if I were so vehemently in favor of something like tithing, and then found out I was wrong, I would be grateful for being set straight. We are to give as we have prospered. I thought I was supposed to abstain from eating pork hard here in the South. So, I found a wonderful preacher who did Bible lessons with us for a long time. He was so thorough with the Bible from beginning to end, and I will always be grateful for God sending him to us.
It was because of him that I finally obeyed the Gospel. No one here is trying to hurt your feelings, yet it may hurt to find out the truth. I appreciate the love and respect you feel for God. Just remember, He wants good, righteous men to teach us the truth. Where did I ever say that? You made an assumption, as you do with the scriptures, that is not correct. Facts: I was a member of a church where the pastor asked me if I would teach a Sunday School class on finances since I have a strong background in accounting and taxation.
I agreed. At that time, I had not deeply research the topic of tithing. While preparing to teach that class, I started doing an in-dept study of the tithe. It was then that I discovered everything I had been taught about tithing was incorrect. I went back to my pastor who disagreed with me, but he said he would do his own research.
Weeks later, that pastor stopped teaching tithing as he determined, as I did, that is was not appropriate in the Christian Church. That study lead me to my own financial ministry. You make the assumption that Abram gave the tenth freely. The scriptures do not say that Abram gave freely, they only say he gave. The scriptures do not tell us WHY Abram gave. While you make the assumption that he gave freely, I use historical data to try and find the answer as to why he gave. You ignore that there would have been laws and customs during that time because they are not stated in the scriptures, and I understand that.
But then you go and decide, on your own, WHY Abram gave. Because Abram gave a tenth of the spoils to Melchizedek, you again make the assumption that the spoils belonged to Abram; otherwise, he gave stolen property. But if the spoils actually belonged to the Abram, how could the King have said such a thing?
Biblical historians give us an answer that makes sense. Abram was following the laws and customs of the times. No where in the scriptures does it say the spoils belonged to Abram. If you want to stick to the scriptures, do so. I never said that priests could keep all of the tithe they received. I have made it clear that the New Testament teaches generous, sacrificial giving, from the heart, according to our means. Being Spirit led, I find myself giving far, far more than a mere tenth of my income. But it is done according to my heart, and according to my means.
And no where in the scriptures does it say when we give to the church we are giving to God. But Jesus did say when we help the poor or needy we are helping him.
Tithing and Giving: Your 5 Questions Answered | ybotumafar.tk
If someone wishes to give a tenth of their income to the church I am all for it. But I am against any pastor teaching tithing as being a requirement of God today, or even using ten percent as a so-called guideline. Neither is correct. Abram had income, but there is no scripture to show he ever gave a tenth of any of it. I assumed we could have a civil discussion on this forum.
I was wrong. You are a contentious man and this discussion is over. He was merely clarifying some of the misunderstandings between you two.
I thought we were having a civil discussion. I merely teach the truth and point out false teachings. In my ministry, I have had meetings with many pastors, in person, and have found that most never studied the topic of tithing, but rather are merely teaching what they were taught. Most of those who listen to me, and then do their own study, stopped teaching tithing.
That is very sad. I believe that God has called me to preach this topic because of my strong background in accounting and taxation.
2. Tithing As It Is Generally Taught Today Is Not Biblical
The Holy Spirit has guided me throughout my studies. There are pastors and Bible Study Classes around the world using my material to teach from. I charge nothing when I teach. My book is FREE to everyone that wants to download it. I accept NO free-will gifts. God has already blessed me beyond my dreams. They spend time looking for ways to justify teaching tithing. My, my, my! This tithing study has been a hot topic for the past months. I was one of the first to respond to this topic. And I have been just reading all the responses: those who are for or against it.
I used to be for tithing until It was revealed to me by the Spirit that tithing was part of the old covenant and Jesus nor any of the early apostles ANYWHERE in the new testament commanded that tithing to a church be the standard and practice.

But tithing is mysteriously missing. Neither is scriptural, yet those and others are still taught, regardless of what our only guide the Bible says. Almost all the television preachers teach tithing; to themselves, of course. Some teach that the more you give to them, the more you will prosper.
I only pray when I give my offering that it be used to spread the Gospel. Thank you so much for that wonderful study have got your site today but i will be studying it may God give you more thoughts and teach the world. Those of us who stopped Tithing have done so not out of greed, selfishness, or lack of faith. We wanted a closer relationship with God, and stopped Tithing as a result of spiritual growth. To grow, we knew we needed to change.
We faced the disturbing thought that our beliefs were wrong in some ways and needed Godly correction. We had the courage to re-examine Scripture and asked God to teach us anew. When we were shown that we were wrong, we bravely admitted it, carried through with our new beliefs, and now share these beliefs with others.
Finances are extremely tight for me. However, after reading this, I am intrigued and to get back on my feet am going to cut the amount I give approximately in half. We will see what happens. Its amazing. Why stop now? God is not going to change course, so why should you? This is powerful stuff and the fact that it is not one sided makes it even more interesting to us new converts. The truth is, it has always worried me, especially here in Africa where we see some pastors prospering while the flock lives in poverty.
Twisting of scriptures for personal gain have reached unprecedented heights and therefore this debate is most welcome.
6 Facts About Tithing
This is an issue that at times has put me in a angry mood more than once…. Some of the biggest cons in Christendom today teach the tithe…. And he is not the only one that does this…. Churches that follow this doctrine I believe are not so much interested in saving souls and solely their savings….. Get clue all you grace robbers!
I have often questioned whether titheing is applicable for the New Testament Church. Yes, I love God, follow Jesus and give all that I have, myself, time etc. I am a tither because it has been drilled that you must do it or you will not be blessed, there was a part of our Church litany that said you will be cursed with a curse if you do not tithe.
First of all Jesus came and we are no longer under a curse. There are those in the Church who look at who is tithing and how you are treated is based on how much you tithe and whether or not you tithe. Yet, for those who tithe, the Church does not want to assist you if you have a difficult time,. Second, I tithe, pray and fast and do so in spite of the fact that my family has been struggling for years, holding on for dear life.
For example by the time I tithed from my last paycheck, paid my utility bill, gas for my car and food, there was literally nothing left. I will need to borrow to have gas after this week to make it to my next pay day. Yes, I am thankful to be able to pay those things, but to have to borrow for gas after this week, is very hard. I am so happy I came across this site.
It has been a blessing to me. I have been upset about the constant begging and gimmicks paintings, books, prayer cloths, et. I am a tither and in addition, give to other ministries and help feed the poor by supporting financially the feeding and clothing programs in my church as well as other organizations as well.
I do not, however, believe in the methods used at my church each Sunday. I have learned a lot by reading the different comments presented on this site. Thank you for so much and I intend to do more studying on my own. However, I have a question. I was particularly disturbed this past Sunday when the pastor announced that he had a banquet for the top givers in the church.
I, of course, immediately thought about the widow who gave the two mites all she had , and how Jesus recognized her above the rich who gave more because she gave all that she had. Joyce, I would stay far away from that ministry as possible. How can you proclaim to be a man of God and be respective of persons. No true heart of God exists in that. One cannot possibly ever understand how Jesus viewed giving if one does live according to the Spirit by instead according to the current social, economic, theological, world view. It has always been about motive not the amount nor a ritual.
The law is the school master to teach. Set a standard. If I let the Spirit give revelation rather than using the natural man to explain or interpret spiritual issues, there is no private interpretation of the living Word that does not change, not one jot or tittle. Tithing was under and is under the law with a curse for Christians seeking salvation under the law, Galatians , Malachi Saved Christians by grace lead by the Holy Spirit are ministers of the new testament with exceeding glory who have been redeemed from the curse of the law to adoptions of sons and are not under the law, Galatians , Galatians,2 Corinthians Salvation under the law one attains it at last breath on earth having done all that pertains to the law which is hard for one to accomplish.
Even the tithe which was given by Abraham was under the law of sin and death from the fall of Adam and Eve. Those who cheat would like to deceive Christians that tithe was before the law but before which law. When Christ was born He was given gifts and not tithes Mathew Salvation under spiritual law of love by grace is freely given and attained, Ephesians -9, Ephesians Under Leviticus priesthood tithes were given for the tribe of Levi and tithe of tithe to the high Priest for they shared no land apart from the walled towns they were allocated to stay in for their continuous sacrifice to God, Numbers Widows, strangers ,fatherless and orphans benefited from tithes and offerings given to Levites, Deuteronomy In Christianity widows were asked to be catered by close brethren to ease burden to the Church.
There were also tithes of different kinds in Israel. There was also a tithe where a family had to eat all before the Lord, Deutreronomy In Christ Jesus we are saved by grace and not by works of law ,Galatians ,Acts , Galatians 4: , Galatians, Galatians Leviticus priesthood under the law with tithes, death, discontinuity and its acceptance under glory of law done away in Christ and the holy priesthood of Christ without tithes, death and discontinuity with exceeding glory under which Christians are in salvation being a Holy nation and loyal Priests to preach to the world GOD being their Father in new covenant ministry, 2 Corinthians, 2Peter Christ is from the tribe of Juda without priesthood and he never sent the Levites Priests to preach to the world.
Christ is the end of the law of sin and death which was against us having crucified it on the cross of Calvary Roman , Roman,Roman Christ came to accomplish all the requirements of the law and became the Lord of the law. Christ crucified on the Cross the law of sin and death which was against us. Christ then removed the first covenant and established the better Second Covenant mediated BY Him upon established better promises for us. All Apostles of Christ never asked for tithes. Even Judas never asked for tithes. Christ Himself never asked for tithes. In new testament comments are made on tithing under law which some want to use to justify tithing.
Leviticus priesthood is totally left out. In the same Spirit Paul referred law as was our and not law is our school master. To justify oneself us paying tithes under the law one has to give tithes to all saved Christians in the Church for we are loyal priests in Christ Jesus presenting our bodies as living sacrifice. But God does not have pleasure for Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings for sin neither had pleasure therein, which are offered under the law. Pastors and priests have done away with offering ,sacrifices and burnt offerings for sins under the law and have been left comfortably with offering offered under law deceptively.
A fountain cannot produce sweet and bitter water the same time. James We are subjected to spiritual law of life in Christ Jesus and ought to have the spiritual understanding of the Word of God. Roman , Colossians As God has blessed us in common inheritance of the saints and we should give sacrificially as we have purposed in our hearts in liberty and in love, Galatians , 2Corinthians 9;, Galatians , Hebrew,Hebrew Christ taught spiritual giving to God and to our parents, Luke ,Matthew Paul also taught the same.
Those under the law are under curse. Are they telling Christians curses under law are blessings for them or they have powers to remove curses when Christians tithe to them? They have directed Christians to deceptive ways of curses for their own benefits and not blessings. The bounty of terror of deceptive greediness is professionally tactically presented as blessing based on salvation under their yard stick of tithes. In willful deception by calling themselves the Levites of today who persecuted Christians and plunder Christians pockets today they are able to demand to be given tithes.
Levites priests and elders never gave a helping hand to Christians. Christ did not leave His Church under Leviticus Priesthood. When we take the Word of God out of its content and contest ,we have contempt for the Word of God. Matthew We can teach doctrine of men instead of doctrines of God. We can have a zeal of faith and establish our own righteousness not according righteousness of God in the knowledge of his Word. Roman Pastors and priests calling themselves Levites of today have capitalized on low level Christian doctrinal knowledge teachings among Christians.
Tithing contradict the doctrine of salvation. We can preach the Word of God making the Church a house of merchandise to make merchandise of Christians and those who do so whose God is their belly which made Adam and Eve to fail in their relationship with God. If the trade was not profitable to them then it would have come to an end but it is a lucrative profitable business to them cunningly preserved with tactical appreciations to the body of Christ and spreading of the Gospel.

Are elect Christians deceived? Romans ,2 Peter , John , Philppians We can preach Christ out of envy, strife or of good will. Philippians ,2Corinthians It is the body of Christ the Church which is sent to preach to the world also as individuals brethren bearing the burden to preach to the world as Apostles of Christ did. The responsibility has not been on shoulders of priests and pastors only.
Brethren are the loyal priests. Tithing is a hard topic to teach without spiritual understanding since we have many high profile elite preachers teaching on the same with books written of great hoped promises and condemnation on the same for those who do not tithe, Ephesians , Thessalonians Some Christians in deceptive manner do teaching on tithes which is warmly appreciated from the pulpit. They become the magnetizing force with alluring great hoped blessed promises of wealth. Pharisees and the Scribes were most well educated and Jesus said woe unto them seven times for being stumbling blocks in faith.
Mathew We only need to rightly divide the Word of God and know whether we are Christians seeking salvation under the law or we are Christians saved by grace in Christ through the Spiritual law of love, Corinthians ,2 Timothy We redeemed sons of God who are made Kings and priests unto God have a common inheritance in Christ Jesus, Galatians , Colssians ,1Corinthians Revelation 1; We are called spiritual sons of God after salvation not before in fallen state and who are enabled to do the righteousness that was in the law but we are not under the law.
The same priests and pastors wreck the spiritual scriptures when they teach fallen Angles are called sons of God who married daughters of men giving offspring of giants , Genesis
