|How Should I Pay My Tithe? by richie44(m): 12:27am On Oct 09, 2016|
Please I need clarification
Am I supposed to pay my tithe on my total sales or my profit
|Re: How Should I Pay My Tithe? by Ojestas(m): 12:48am On Oct 09, 2016|
Your net profit.
|Re: How Should I Pay My Tithe? by Nobody: 2:00am On Oct 09, 2016|
10% out of your net profit. Noting more, nothing less

This tithe issue ehn.
Some other question I'd like to ask is; is it meant to be paid in the church you worship or anywhere or any pastor you feel?.
Is it a sin to not pay tithe? etc.

royalvalentine19:You are not to pay tithe at all for the following 10 reasons
1.) You are not a Jew or an Israelite, who was commanded by God to pay tithe from cultivating crops or breeding and raising livestock (e.g. cows and/or lambs) in the Promised Land
2.) The tithe commanded by God was meant to be given ONLY in Israel, meant to be paid ONLY in Israel and meant to be received ONLY in Israel
3.) The methodolody used for selecting the tithe, was to hand-pick for tithe, the tenth livestock (e.g. cows, lambs) that passes under the rod
4.) The implication of #3 above, is that if you started with 1 livestock (e.g. 1 cow or 1 lamb) and at the end of year, bred and raised 9 cows or 9 lambs, then you dont pay tithe for that year
5.) Tithe were received in Jerusalem and for convenience stored up in a number of Levitical cities scattered all over Israel
6.) Where an Israelite is supposed to pay tithe on sales, is when ONLY buying back the tithe, (i.e. buying back the tenth cow, lamb or cultivated crops)
-there however, is a warning that the Israelite pays the going rate or value of the bought back the tenth cow, lamb or cultivated crops tithe, plus 20 percent.
7.) The bible is a book of divisions, where some parts, like tithe part, was meant for and talking exclusively to the Israelites and no else
8.) The common denominator in all biblical tithe giving (e.g. Abraham's tithe and the Israelites tithings) is a high priest or Levite physically receiving the tithe
9.) The implication of #8 above, is that a pastor is neither a high priest or Levite, hence has no business receiving tithe nor have any jurisdiction over tithe.
10.) Tithe was an obligatory and mandatory giving command made to the Israelite
Contributions which are voluntary and optional is the sort of giving expected from a believer(s)
It is what a believer decides in the heart and is comfortable with to give that God expects
Also believers shouldn't be sorry that they have given or feel forced in response to pressure to give

You forgot to add:
11. Tithe was mostly meant to be eaten by the tither
12. and in the third year (the year of the tithe), it was to be shared between the alien, the widow, the orphan and the Levite, not just the Levite.

Why not use the tithe and buy beer and hot drinks and drink to the glory of God as commanded in Deuteronomy?
|Re: How Should I Pay My Tithe? by EternalBeing: 10:20am On Oct 09, 2016|
Ask me again.

If you buy some goods for 1 million, you sold all and make 1.5million (profit of 500,000). Your tithe will be from the 500,000 . God bless you as you pay your tithe . Church, Orphanage, Old people's home. Poor neighbours are the beneficiaries.

How do I become a pastor? It seems alot of pips in Nigeria are voluntarily giving away there hard earn money to enrich the so called men of God. Op instead of enriching the already wealthy greedy pastors why not help humanity by donating 10% to orphanage homes who are desperately in need of cash to survive.

What the bible say on tithing
|Re: How Should I Pay My Tithe? by gentlegenius(m): 10:46am On Oct 09, 2016|
It doesn't really matter how you pay and where you pay your tithe. What matters most is who benefits from your tithes?
The Bible(Deut 14:28-29) carefully list those who should benefit from tithes and they are: Levites(they only exist in Israel), Strangers, Widows, Fatherless(poor and needy people). Apart from the Levites, other beneficiaries exist everywhere.
Instead of us to share our tithes directly to the existing beneficiaries, we choose to pay it to our pastors who are far from being Levites without caring what they do with the tithe. That's what we see in this over-religious but yet wicked generation.
