Can Tithe Be Given To Someone In Need?. by blink(f): 1:05am On Dec 30, 2014
I just like the christian on Nairaland to help me throw more light to this,
I once had my tithe with me when someone walked up to me for an assistance to discharge her family from hospital. After confirming that it's true, I just dropped my entire tithe to pay the bill and believe I had paid my tithe but somehow I was told that since I didn't drop it in the church am yet to pay my tithe.

Sister, you have paid your 'tithe'. God will bless you 1000 times more for that act of kindness than if you had paid the money to your church ( so called ).

In fact , there is nowhere in scripture where you are commanded to pay any tithe or even offerings

Tithing is an Old Testament concept which was really for the levites and priests . Remember we are now the temple of God and as priests of God with our high priest Jesus , there is absolutely no justification for either paying or receiving the tithe. In most cases you are enriching your pastor while your relatives and friends or even brethren who you could have helped , languish in poverty and need.

Now let me tell you something, your pastor is not God , so next time he or one of the church leaders asks for your tithe, just tell him/them that you have obeyed God instead of Man .

If they start to instill fear into you through deceptive bible twisting and bullying, just leave his church and go somewhere else.


You did the right thing and you are blessed for it in abundance.

At the risk of sounding legalistic, you cant give ur tithe to any other place except ur local church where you are been fed the word. Malachi 3 is very clear on that. Also, tithes in the OT were administered by Levi priests (Pastors in our case).
Every giving has its place, tithes, offerings, giving to missions, alms, to parents etc have their place in the scriptures and they should be separated.

What happened with your communication with God?
Can't u ask him?

You'll surely get more conflicting views here.


I don't know the laid down rules or do's and don'ts as regards tithing.

But I think what u just is alms giving not giving tithe.

The tithe should be brought to the house of God to be used in the house of God.

This is my view!

I think it is plain in the bible where tithe should be paid, Mal 3:10 God already said it should be brought to His house. Read any translation, they will all tell u the same.

some people can be funny sha!
Pay tithe to church while someone is in the hospital!

Not until we know the reason or reasons behind this tithe payment, we won't do what we ought to.


Melchizedek blessed Abraham before he (Abraham) give him 1/10th of the spoil...

As far there's no need to be met in the church, you can like pay your tithe to help someone in need.


But just as some has noted, the Holy Spirit is there for guidance!
Shalom

Even though I am strongly against tithing in the new testament church, the bible makes it clear that tithes can be given to those in need. Deut 14:28-29

The tithing system the church uses today is at best fraudulent as the word of God had to be twisted and mis applied to arrive at the unbiblical version of tithes preached today.

The tithing system today is unbiblical, its not Christian.
It would be nice to find a real Church that believes in the lord., one that teaches his word..

so if your family member is dying in hospital, you would rather pay tax than pay the bill for treatment? Urgent cases need different approach

The person who told you that-is lying to you, what you did helping that person in need was what God teaches us to do.
If you read the scriptures-tithing is not biblical, you need to remove yourself out of that Church-you won't find any other scripture in the bible other then {Malachi 3:10} where it say's you are blessed through tithing.
Matter of fact {Malachi 1,2,3,4} Chapters God was talking to the Levite priesthood-they broke the covenant they had with God. they turned their backs on God robbing Him.
The Levite priesthood began worshiping other god's behind the veil in God's Temple, {Ezekiel 8:1-18}
Is this the kind of example you follow?.
Tithing was for the 11 tribes of Israel to obey,
Tithing was designed to give to the widows the Fatherless, and the strangers. you had given what was right to do, it's God's commandment.
{Proverbs 22:16} He who gives to the rich, will surely come to poverty..
What this means-don't give your money to a church that's flowing with riches, while you are struggling through life-always look for opportunities to give it to the poor,
{1 John 3:17} But whoever brother is in need, and one shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him. {Zech 7:8-10. Matthew 5:42, Matthew 6:1-4, Luke 3:10-11, Luke 14:13-14, I Cor 10:23-24, Ecc 2:26}

I for one, agree-and many different Churches have their faults, and it's a shame people are misled by false literature's, without studying the Word of God-dying from lack of knowledge-they tithe, "not realizing it's very unscriptual.
Through the Old testament it was the 11 tribes of Israel' that tithed to Aaron and the Levite priesthood-most of the tithe fed the Widows, the Fatherless and the Strangers.
Of course today this deafeningly doesn't happen..
Gentiles are not under the Mosaic law.
Wrong teaching's such as these, "like keeping the Sabbath day-for Gentiles, shows how religious concepts have destroyed the Church.
Obviously with no work being done on the Sabbath day, this would be an ideal day to have organised worship services.
However the New Testament does not command that the Sabbath day' be the day of worship only because the Church is not under the Mosaic law.

JW's had claimed they don't tithe, and they tithe? Old Testament tithing or JW's New tithing, is still unbiblical tithing, tithing to your Church is not scriptural. Plus the New Testament never talks about that Christians need to obey the Mosaic Law, the Gentiles couldn't even worship with the Jews- nor were the Gentiles allowed to leave a gift at any Jewish temple.

Looking you will but you can't see, hearing you will but you can't get the sense! Matthew 13:13

My original post says "old covenant tithing is unchristian" but as usual you rushed in to quote me instead of humbly asking if there is anything like New Covenant tithing! Matthew 7:7-8

Well i have told you "We (JWs) know how to pay our TITHES" you aren't on the same page with us so go and resolve your issues with your own people.

As for JWs we must pay our TITHES but we won't TEACH you how we're doing so in spirit and truth {John 4:24} because you're not one of the sheep belonging to our Master, Lord and King Christ Jesus! John 10:27
