I remember one time one very fine girl i was toasting invited me to her church and just to get into her good books i decided to honour the invitation, i got to the church that faithful day and sat down like a responsible brother with my big bible, she even sighted me from the choir section and we smiled at each other. Everything was going smoothly and i was even enjoying the service until 'offering time' when the devil decided to use the usher(as my Christian brothers will say), i opened my wallet and realized all i had was '1000 naira notes' and my plan was to give '100 naira'(maximum 200). I beckoned on one of the male ushers and explained my predicament to him and he assured me that it wasn't a problem as it was a normal occurrence in the church, he asked that i give him the money so that when he gets to my row from the back he will give me my change so i gave him '1000naira note' and kept dancing, about 3 mins later i saw him by my side collecting money from my row so i stretched out my hand for my change and to my utmost surprise the same usher that was very nice suddenly transformed and said 'oga i cannot put my hand inside the offering bag", i wasn't having any of that so i held him by the trouser, fortunately for him the man standing next to him brought out '1000 naira' and gave me back my money, unfortunately for me the fine girl i was toasting saw all the drama and this led to the premature end of our relationship. Moral of this story-----I dont blame the man, some people dont just like what they hate........ angry
cheesy man..now that was cold

Funny enough there's no where in the bible where Christians are asked to pay their tithes to a pastor or a church leader.
No man can make me bring out what I'm not willing to give in the name of God.
God will be very angry with me if I give to someone who has more than me what he has given me to take care of myself and people I'm better than.
God's people really perish for lack of knowledge

very wrong of the church.
It could have been better recognizing consistent tithers irrespective of the amount and not the highest tither. now wat of the guy that earns 10k and still pays his tithe
why recognize tithers in the first place, is tithing not supposed to be between you and your God

Christians are not mandated to pay tithe. We are free in Christ and all our givings should be as the Spirit leads else we are empty professors.

Any church that is collecting tithe is not only robbing you but placing you under the curse of the law. It says for all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: "Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law." Galatians 3:10.

There are 613 laws that are to be kept to be right with God. No man kept these except Christ. And through His death we are free from the rule and condemnation of the law. If Christ has freed you from the Law why do you still entangle yourself with its yoke, bringing yourself under bondage and condemnation by obeying wicked men who only want to fleece you for their gain?

Isn't Christ enough? Don't you trust the Spirit of Christ to lead you? Isn't Christ your righteousness, the reason you stand justified before God is it because you pay tithe (keep 1 of 613 laws)? or because you believe in Jesus Christ?
Nothing but the truth.
In addition, the Newbreed Christian tithe law which demands that people should bring a 10% of salary (money) didn't originate from the Bible.
Jews gave a 10% of farm produce for the temple store house. There was money then yet nobody was asked to tithe money.
Jews had a tithe break and observed jubilee.
Jews also ate tithe ( referring to farm produce) with strangers and poor among them at some seasons.
Concerning Abraham, the period before the law, he was only recorded to have given tithe just once in his lifetime. And it was not his earnings but spoils of war.
People who give a 10th of salary to a Church are not different from the person who gives 0.5% of his/her salary as both givings are rightly offerings.
10% of one's salary does not represent the Jewish tithe or the tithe Abraham gave once.
In some Church enterprises they load people with guilt of not paying tithes as if it is a crime against a Christian law punishable by dearth of all financial incomes in the non-tithers life. Some devised a means of stratifying the Church goers in their buildings into tithers (just bring something), non-tithers and faithful tithers (bring 10%) in a register just like the twitter user observed.
Now, this is far from the truth.
The blessings of God in Christ Jesus is accessible to all who truely believe in the completed work of Christ. That blessings does not depend on 10% salary or profit submission and the blessings does not select people based on tithe.
If men of gods were God not only will they ostracize people from Churches for not submitting a 10% of salary, they will create a special Hell of suffering for people who do not obey the order. They can't do either of them.

Stop quoting the Bible out of context. If paying One million as tithe out of ten million God blessed me with is a sin, Oluwa Pls bring more money I am ready to "sin" more.
An2elect2 write up is filled with Christian context. If you have ever given 10% of your salary and call it tithe, you are wrong because that is not tithe. You only gave an offering and if you gave it out of obligation or compulsion, then it is no longer the Christian offering.


Offerings, alms giving, charity and kindness attracts blessings which are not tied to the amount or percentages but to the cheerfulness of the act. E.g. Mr A who gave 80% of his salary grudgingly, i.e. thinking of other things he would have used the money for is not likely to attract more blessings than Mr B who gave 1% thinking of how he could give more to better the lifes of his/her neighbour the next time.

Yes he fulfilled them so that we can be free from all the yokes of the Law. Yoke that was so hard for the religious Jews to keep all its demands is it you of a computer age that can keep all of it (613 laws)?
Thank God for Jesus who summarized all the laws and gave you just a statement. You shall love the Lord thy God with all thine heart and Love your enemies as yourself. And to help you with this he gave the Holy Spirit to remind you of the things He taught.

grin grin grin
The law has not been destroyed for the lawbreakers and for all those who think they can keep the whole Jewish law. Goodluck to them with their struggles. But woe to the modern Pharisees who reside on well decorated thrones, in palatial Churches and temples, demanding financial aspects of the Jewish laws upon Christians.
As for me and my family, in Jesus we found a fulfilment of the laws and hidden in him, we act as the unpredictable wind of the spirit leads our hearts.
The Choice is yours!

how I wish you wrote this in upper case!
many refuse to read and understand their scriptures but prefer to accept without research what the pastor says! read Rom16:17-18!
the work of evangelism isn't a profit oriented thing but for salvation of souls but this has been hijacked by philosophers using the bible to thrill and then milk people! check out the whole of the new testament that's the Christian code of conduct no one paid a dime as tithe!!
even in the old testament tithe was NEVER cash!!!

I am better off with the 10% my guy. Because I can justify and it is cheap. Just 10%.
I know your type, you will twist you members to free will shoes, free will offering, free will sacrifice, free will school fees, free will pastors car, free will pastors wife bag, etc
I wonder what we understood in Matthew 23:23 ... These you ought to do without neglecting paying tithes.(paraphrased). Or do I need a Rev father to interpret it for me.

The blessings of God are for all believers and non believers, but his kingdom is only for those that fears and keeps his commandments.

If an idol worshiper and a true child of God washes their cloths and spreads them, God will send the sun and the wind to dry up the clothes irrespective of their diff. faiths but on the day of separation, that Idol worshiper who enjoyed the blessings of God and refused to do the will of God will be cast away.

Tithing is not under the law sir....Abraham gave tithe after he came back from war to mechzadeck.

The law is also know as the law of moses....
So be corrected
Abraham gave tenth n not Abraham paid tithe like he is owning anybody.

so 10% of what, a loot, properties that werent his n he returned. Abraham wasnt blessed bcus of it, he was blessd before it.

Bros , Tithing was before the law, Abraham, aproved by and under the law ....The popular Mal 3:10 .....and consented to by Jesus Christ and the testament.


Hen 7:8-10 and Matt 23:23 ...Luke 11:42. ... No law abolished it ....However when iT is paid or done as a formula or doctrine it ceases to be a mystery of the kingdom and incapable of benefiting the tither

And no law established it in the NT, JESUS AND THE APOSTLES DIDNT PREACH IT.

YOU DONT UNDERSTAND THOSE SCRIPTURES PROPERLY AND YOUR STANDARD SEEM SET ON WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD.

study, read articles of early church fathers on tithing, read the history, truth about tithing, read jewish articles people who the law was given to, gain wisdom, gain the truth.
