1) which church do you attend?

Pastors riding private jet is not an excuse to not giving to Church. There are more churches without jets than there are those with in Nigeria. And many are not even planning to buy one ever e.g Baptist, Methodist, Daystar, ECWA, Anglican, Apostolic faith, CAC, Methodist, FourSquare etc.

2) Giving to the poor NEVER absolves you the responsibility of giving to church

As long as you are a Christian you have the responsibility to fund your church as all of us do because if we all Christian take your step of giving to poor then there would be no more Church-Whether you belief in Tithing or not, arrange a worthy sum of your income and head to a ministry that suits you like the Orthodox and pay your dues. Then also set aside something good enough for those in need or are poor around you.



The bible NEVER instructed anyone to pay tithe in church

Jesus christ is "the seed" of Abraham, and He is made high priest for ever according to the order of melkizedek.

Melkizedek was called King of Salem, he was a man without beging of days or ending. He was a king and a priest.

Now Abraham gave tithe to melkizedek. Pls note that Abraham was not under the law as the law came by moses.

Today we are not under the law, jesus christ is our high priest after the order of melkizedek. We absolutely should follow our faithful father of faith, Abraham, and the church is the body of christ.

I pay my tithes, and I've been blessed by it, there is no one that can tell me all these blessings came by luck.. I know my sourse.

Give your tithe, don't follow these devilish preaching out to rub you of your blessing as a Christian
They come as sheeps, but inside they are wolfs.

Tithe was revealed in the Bible before the law. Came.

What is God's definition of tithe?

Why is tithe necessary for God's access to Blessings if Jesus has totally fulfilled the requirements of the old covenant?

What does Acts 15 tell you about the difference between Judaism and Christianity?

Testing God in the tithe (Mal. 3:10–12) Bring the full
tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.

All I will tell u is charity begins at home... Was is not God that provided for you in the first place to have had enough to even open ur mouth to say u want to give to the poor? How come a tenth of that required to keep the flow coming in becomes a problem to u? The real intent on your heart is self-serving and to mock God... unfortunately, na urself you dey do... cos God has said it clearly ... psl 50:10-12 "the cattle upon a thousand hills are mine" , "even If I were to be hungry, I will not tell u"... so like I said, keep fooling urself... when u are done, u sef go see ur reward with ur two opolo eyes.

Can will replace the word 'tithe' with ' Give"

Can't believe 10% is the bone of contention. If only these pastors will stop emphasising it.
You don't turn the Bible upside down just because u want to make money. God will generally take care of his own in his own way. You don't have to preach it.

Op
Give to whoever the spirit says you should give.
You are not under any law as Christ as replaced it with grace.

You are doing yourself not God or the Church or your pastor.

Tithe is different from giving to the poor scripturally.

Tithe is not negotiable though is a choice.

Giving to the poor is not giving to the beggars either but the widows, the less privilege in your community before you give to outside.

Giving to your parent is also important and there are 2 giving that avert curse tithe and giving to our parent. May God give you understanding.



So what is tithe? angry

The Bible didn't tell you to pay tithe to the poor. You're instructed to give to the poor which is good. Kindly give to the poor but don't call it tithe and advise you to grow in the world and neglect the anti Christian movements. Jesus Christ Loves you

The pastors are the thieves!!!
The truth is bitter.
Neither thieves will inherit the kingdom of God .You are robber if you eat your tithe ( mal 3:8-10) . You wouldn't make it to heaven because God hates thieves ( 1 cor 6:9-10). Hate me all you want.

let me tell you. My brother. Jesus christ is our high priest now. The high priest is an office which still is. The Bible let's us know that He is the high priest for ever.

Hebrews 7
For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, 2 and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything. He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is, king of peace. 3 He is without father or mother or genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God he continues a priest forever.

4 See how great this man was to whom Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth of the spoils! 5 And those descendants of Levi who receive the priestly office have a commandment in the law to take tithes from the people, that is, from their brothers,[a] though these also are descended from Abraham


The Bible let's is know that He is the Priest, He is King, and also the sacrifice. The Lamb upon the throne.

He is worth of all my worship. If he demands 90% I will gladly give..

Educate ur self.

Deuteronomy 26 vs 12.
When you have finished setting aside a tenth of all your produce in the third year, the year of the tithe, you shall give it to the Levite, the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, so that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied.

Deuteronomy 14 vs 28.
At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year’s produce and store it in your towns, 29 so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands



Numbers 18 vs 26.

Malachi means the Prophets.


26 “Speak to the Levites and say to them: ‘When you receive from the Israelites the tithe I give you as your inheritance, you must present a tenth of that tithe as the Lord’s offering. 27 Your offering will be reckoned to you as grain from the threshing floor or juice from the winepress. 28 In this way you also will present an offering to the Lord from all the tithes you receive from the Israelites. From these tithes you must give the Lord’s portion to Aaron the priest. 29 You must present as the Lord’s portion the best and holiest part of everything given to you.’

Make out time n read the whole book of Malachi. Long before u finish reading It, it will clearly show u that the whole book of Malachi is a warning for the levites. Malachi 3 vs 10 is a warning for priests who do not pay up to 10% of their tithe.

Bring your tithe into my house is what the Lord says, not give it to the poor.
Your tithe belong to the church you worship in except you want to change where you worship to local churches then you tithes will met their needs that is if you dont want to tithe it in the church you think they are wealthy already.

remember, if thou love me thou shall obey my Word.

1 cor 2:10 is the summary of the whole brouhaha. He reveal the word of God more to man like never before ( John 14:26). He is the best teacher. There are things mortal man can't comprehend because they study the Bible life literature. Even if 40 scriptures on tithing are given to them, many had made up their minds not to listen.

How many of them have you seen with jet?
Give tithe if you want to, Give it to the less privilege if you want to, Give to your parents if you want to, the important thing is Giving....

Do you know many people don't give to their parents but run to church shouting tithe?
Many don't even remember how important it is to give to their parents.


Just make sure you give, in any form you can

You are confusing alms giving with tithe! The Word teaches 10% in tithes, 10% in alms plus an offering and the rest is for you to enjoy. When you give to the poor, you're simply giving alms not tithe. That is what your General Overseer Apostle Daddy Freeze hasn't told you because he has been commissioned by Satan to lead you people astray.

This guy must be a pastor, you don't make any sense with your replies on this post. Instead of using sentiment to respond, why not do like the other guy and bring out a bible verse to support that you go to hell if you don't tithe in the new testament and if you insist on tithing, tell us how you pay your tithe and see if it's in correlation with what the bibe instructed in the old testaments.
You lot know the truth but because of your greediness, you won't come out to tell the truth and you are the first to call people lucifer agent. This is 2018, only a fool will fall for the blackmail. Christains should be christ-like and if Christ didnt do it or command us to do it in the new testament then its something else you are practising.
asuustrike2009:
Even the devil is brilliant and sound convincing but he is crafty.Tithing has being there from immemorial during the time of Abraham. Even Jesus validated it. Haven't you Wonder why devil's agents are quick to condemn it?
Haven't you wonder why they are against? Haven't you wonder why they suddenly start fighting tithing beginning from last year 2017 till date?. The reason is because they are not happy. God's word will never change on tithing. I have seen Lucifer's members quoting me up and down. They are fighting tooth and nail just to mention that they send many to hell. They know the truth yet they are still fighting by using excuses. My dear op the voice of Satan is aggressive. He is very quick to kick gainst what will benefit you spiritually. If God should open your eyes to his trick then you would understand better. The choice is yours, either you follow them or go on your knees in prayer to ask Yahweh for a clearer picture. He will surely reveal himself if you eager to know. You don't any pastor to convince you any further because he will. There are many bible verses supporting tithing while Lucifer's members can't quote just one verse that says don't pay tithe. They keep beating around the Bush because it is difficult but to crack hence they come up with excuses.

You want to practice tithing because Abraham commanded you to do but you won't do animal sacrifice like Abraham did. You won't obey the sabbath day rule, you men still shave your Beards despite been told not to, you ladies still have your ears pierced too despite it boldly written not to. You can't choose which old testament law to obey and choose the one no to. New testament is a new dawn and if Jesus didn't command you to do it and Jesus didn't do it himself, then my brothers and sisters, you are wastig your time.

OkCornel:


Please answer my questions if you truly understand the word of God like Jesus did. Please expose the lies or errors inherent in my assertions on tithing so far.

The part of your message I bolded still shows you don't want to understand what happened in Acts 15. God would not be held responsible for your refusal to understand that tithing is not a new covenant requirement.

Learn to know what applies to Judaism and what applies to Christianity. Don't mix up both.

I am still awaiting your answers to my questions. Don't avoid them ... if you truly have the answers, then address these questions directly.
