If You Are A Christian, But You Don't Tithe, Do You Go To Hell? by frosbel(m): 6:50pm On Jul 06, 2012
I recently read a testimony from 7 Colombian Youth to whom Jesus gave a divine revelation of Hell. Jesus appeared to them on April 11, 1995 and took them on a tour of hell. While they were there, they saw people who were Christians, but who were damned to Hell for not giving tithes and offerings. Here is an excerpt from the testimony:

"We continued walking, seeing thousands and thousands of people. There were young people, adults and elderly people suffering in torment. We arrived in a place that looked like a big swimming pool of fire, with thousands of men and women inside of it. Each of them had metal plate on their chest that read: "I am here for not giving tithes and offerings" When I read that, I asked the Lord, "Lord, how can this be possible, that people are here for this reason??" The Lord responded, "Yes, because these people thought that tithes and offerings were not important, when my Word shows it as a command." In Malachi 3:8-9 it says "Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me. But you say, 'How have we robbed Thee?' In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you."

The Lord told me that when His people withhold their tithes, it hinders the work of the Lord, and then the Gospel is not preached. People in this place suffered a thousand times worse than others, because they knew the Word of the Lord and disobeyed."

What do you think? Could this testimony actually be true, or do you think it's made up? Do you think people who are Christians, but don't tithe will go to Hell when they die?

I feel paying your tithe as a christian is important in order to be a partaker of the blessings attached, but I strongly do not feel it's a basis for a place in heaven or hell.

Absolutely , that some people will believe this nonsense is beyond me.

My rule of the thumb as a Christian is , anything which is compulsory is not of GOD.

Many churches today , just like the catholic church in the middle ages , use the fear of eternal torment and the curse of not tithing to hold their members in bondage.

The bible does tell us that "where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." -2 Corinthians 3:17

Where are the tithers in the house.

Do you believe that failing to pay tithe means hell fire ?

Aside's heavenly blessings i think its more of a responsibility to give be it tithe or offerings as long as you attend that church. But i feel coerciön,threat of alienation and creating fear strategy adopted is wrong cause it should be voluntary. I don't pay tithes but give offerings because i feel the church can't function without money. But if God includes my nön paying of tithes has part of the reasons he throws me in hell for eternity, no qualms

tithing is a fraud in totality, its just a means where by pastors (fraudsters) work on the emotions of people to defraud them of their hard earned money. throughout the life of Jesus, Jesus never preached tithe, Jesus preached, help the poor, feed the hungry. give water to the thirsty, home the homeless, clothe the Unclad. Jesus never said give money to the pastors. in the bible there was no where Jesus after preaching asked for offerings and collection, instead he feed the people with the small he had. Jesus wasn't rich, neither his disciples, also, the apostles preached communal living and sharing things in common, they didn't collect tithe. FOR YOUR OWN GOOD PRACTICE WHAT JESUS PREACHED WHICH IS TO HELP THE HELPLESS AND STOP MAKING SOMEONES ELSE RICH

Well, keep searching,Frosbel. How much easier would it have been if you believe the words," Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life" !!! grin grin grin

This is falsehood. I used to believe in the traditions of men and even teach my church members the same. I realized I had lived my whole Christian life in falsehood. I just realized tithe is not a new testament command, giving is. I have been following traditions of men in the church my whole life. Thanks to people like brother frosbel, pastor kun and many other bible teachers on this board. God bless you for opening the eyes of Christians. I urge all Christians to open their bible by themselves, slowly and gradually you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.

Who undoubtedly will go to hell, is the spastor who collects tithes.
The Bible clearly says. Should not be charged (and therefore not pay) tithe.
Read Malachi 3 onwards.
