You were instructed to pay tithes by your pastor and not Christ. You pastor might as well instruct you to drink poison or strap bomb on your chest, it does not mean it was instructed by Christ.

Jesus is the word. He was there from the beginning of creation and never a time did he spoke against tithing.


Going by this logic...Jesus never spoke against animal sacrifice...so why aren't you doing it?

Was Malachi for those practising Judaism i.e. Old Covenant

OR

Was it for those practising Christianity i.e. New Covenant

Kindly read up Acts 15 for how the Apostles dealt with controversy of the Mosaic Law (which includes tithing) in the early church

That is the right attitude, different strokes for different folks. If tithes works for you, by Jove pay your tithes peacefully, but it is wrong criminalizing non tithers and threatening them with curses, fire and brimstone.

The Catholic Church survived and prospered for over 1800 years without tithes, the Ethiopian Church survived longer without tithes, numerous orthodox churches prospered for centuries without tithes. The first churches in Nigeria prospered, built churches, schools, hospitals etc, for free without tithes and Nigerian Churches now making tithes the basis of their existence.

My dear don't assume that your tithe given to the poor is tithe. No matter how you see, that is not tithe instead it is seed. The day of judgment is fast approaching. Pastors will judged squarely for their actions so just leave them. It is only on earth that everyone has the opportunity to either behave well or abnormal. Once you cross over to the other side, there is no mercy. Everything will be revealed for you to see. Don't be moved by some satanic group asking you to pay your tithe to the poor because they will deny you on judgment day.( from experience)
From experience?? Are you dead before?see me see Nigerians

The commandment to tithe, or contribute a tenth of one’s belongings, was part of the Law given to the ancient nation of Israel. However, the Bible makes it clear that this Law—including the “commandment to collect tithes”—does not apply to Christians.—Hebrews 7:5, 18; Colossians 2:13, 14.

Please just read your bibles ....Dont follow any pastor before confirming what he/she is teaching is from the bible because today we have what we call organized religion ..its like sham business

The bolded part was totally shows zero intention of provocation from my end, yet you voluntarily chose to quote a post of mine...not to tell me anything new I can learn but just to insult me?

I believe you are mature enough to pass your message across without insults. You were raised up in a God fearing home where such words were not the normal way of communication (I guess)...so try as much as possible to reflect that in your speech.

If you don't want to hear anything regarding tithes...stop following tithe and anti-tithe related threads...you'll have your peace of mind, no one is forcing you. For those that wants to continue, they aren't complaining...

Cheers...

I do not know who is arguing with you.
Obviously, not me!

tithing is unchristianlike. You cannot force us to do according to the tradition of a mortal man like you. Tithing has no place in Christianity.

if you like to cirmvent the Bible to suit your purpose...go ahead and do so...because that's

what many nigerians love to do...postmortem after death..tithe is separate...goodwill for the poor does not disturb your tithe..

it is just a matter of unfaithfulness..

I really hate to see pastor riding on private jets while the poor are suffering. So i have decided to start paying my tithe's to the poor. Am i right? Or am making a very big mistake.

Pay tithe to the church and forget those confused people. Then if u feel like giving to the poor after paying tithe, then its even better. But Never skip paying ur tithe to a church(any true church). As for me i do both and a, always blessed

Ubenedictus:



the poor are among those who should be given the tithe


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

I have red your verses. Can you help me read Malachi 3 : 10-17
I have read your own with humility. Read my own and think deeply.

Secondly, have you ever followed the ones you quoted? If your answer is no then your guess is as good as mine.
Remain blessed

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.
A choice that's not negotiable? Don't use confusion scatter my brain.

The bible itself from Genesis to revelation is for Christians. Jesus never kicked against tithing either. Study the bible verses I gave and see for yourself. It is easy to say Malachi isn't for Christians but Exodus 20:1 -17 are for Christians.

" All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right."( 2 Tim 3:16). It didn't say some scriptures but all. There is reason why put those chapters in the bible. They are not there for decoration

Please if you are really passionate about tithing. Kindly tell us how you pay your tithes. 10% of what exactly?

Please be courageous enough to give a DIRECT answer that both the tithers and anti-tithers would learn from.

I hope you don't have a personal agenda you are protecting under the guise of being concerned for the welfare of the church

Don't be ignorant was justice, faith and love prescribed for new testament lifestyle or only for the Pharisees? Did they even practice it? What is the meaning of weightier matters? What's the difference between TITHE and ALMS.

You still don't understand...Jesus was discussing matters of the Law (Old Covenant) with the Pharisees.

The burdens of the Law no longer concerns you as Jesus has fulfilled every bit of them by dying on the cross and giving you a new covenant after fulfilling the old one.

To understand this better go and read Acts 15 and get some enlightenment.

Also focus on the teachings of Jesus to His followers (definitely not the Pharisees) while He was alive. Kindly show me if He expressly mentioned tithing in any of his sermons or parables as a mandatory way of giving to please God. Instead, read up what he preached about separating the sheeps from the goats as per Matthew 25 v 31-46
