Would It Still Be Tithe If I Pay It To Someone In Need Rather Than The Church? by izzy4shizzy(m): 7:33am On Nov 04, 2018
I have been thinking about paying of tithe and I have been caught in between two thoughts, now is paying of the 1/10th of ur earnings to the church that is referred to as tithe only or paying that 1/10th to some other purpose which u feel more satisfied with..

For example, would it also be tithe if I give my tithe to someone sourcing for funds to treat a terminal illness?

Because sometimes, I don't really think the church needs my tithe but they stress so much about paying. Now the million dollar question is, is it paying of tithe i.e one tenth of ur earnings generally to whatever purpose you see fit or paying it to the church

Am SHOCKED that such question can exist when there is so MUCH KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORD OF GOD everywhere.

Is the organisation GOD'S REPRESENTATIVE INSTITUTE?

Your funny question is like a university of Lagos Medical student asking if he can write exam in any other university with the same department.

I am really shocked at your question but I guess you are not really serious.

When you MARRY, so do show love to your wife or to all wives in the world?

GOD IS ONE, GOD HAS A SYSTEM AND PLACE WHERE HIS WORSHIPERS ASSEMBLE, IT IS CALLED THE CHURCH..... It would be confusion for the same God to have different means of Approach because it would mean He is not consistent with His nature. Also, TITHE is really not an ISSUE as daddy freeze and others have been barking about... TITHE BEGAN BEFORE THE LAW even in the book of Genesis.... so it is NOT a question OF WHETHER TO PAY OR NOT.... it is simply a system of how God's GOVERNMENT WORKS.

THE KINGDOM OF GOD is a REAL KINGDOM and every KINGDOM has taxes and levis BUT It seems that we have outgrown the KINGDOM system and forgotten it exists simply because we are under a PRESIDENTIAL RULE. NONETHELESS, God is not mocked, and PAYING TITHE or NOT PAYING will not guarantee you a place in heaven,

SO PLEASE STUDY YOUR BIBLE TO CONFIRM WHAT I HAVE SAID, so that no one will come here with MINDLESS CHATTER without scriptural references. WE DO NOT SERVE A KING BY THOUGHTS OR FEELINGS OR EMPATHY OR SYMPATHY.... WE SIMPLY FOLLOW THE LAID DOWN PRINCIPLES OF HOW HE WANTS TO BE SERVED.

TITHE IS NOT A DONATION, NEITHER IS IT ALMS or GIFT

Alaye, shut up.

Tithes was for Levites, is your Gentile pastor a Levite?
Tithes were paid in a Theocracy, is your country a Theocracy?
Tithes were a tax on income, don't you pay your income tax?
Tithes had a formula for sharing it, it wasn't all to be gobbled up by the priests, is your tithe-collector following the formula?

The day you read your Bible, you'll come back to delete this nonsense you typed up here.

you are absolutely correct, it's Morden days tithe when you pay to someone in need rather than church. The church has been scamming individuals of less intellectual with this ancient tithe doctrines.

Re: Would It Still Be Tithe If I Pay It To Someone In Need Rather Than The Church? by Hakeem12(m): 8:07am On Nov 04, 2018
The real question here is: “does the New Covenant require tithing, or do many Christians require it?” The New Testament teaches Cheerful Giving, but, unfortunately, many Christians still insist on tithing.

The problem with Christian Biblical interpretation is that one needs to take the Biblical passages in their textual and historical context. Much of the support for tithing comes from the Old Testament and the Old Mosaic Covenant, and the New Testament and the New Covenant. Malachi 3:8, is in the Old Covenant and applies to Mosaic Covenant Israel, not the New Covenant Church. In fact, there are only two or three references in the New Testament to tithing, and those passages refer to Christ rebuking the Jewish leaders for faithful tithing, while ignoring the most important things.

Many Christians take tithing out of context in other ways. Tithing was of agricultural produce and livestock. It was not of money. Tithing was to support the tribe of Levi, which could not have land of its own. Tithing was part of the Jewish tax system to support them and Temple worship. Tithing was also supposed to help the poor, not oppress them.

In the New Covenant, there is no tithing of the land. There is no Levitical priesthood. All Christians are priests. Neither the mode or need for tithing are relevant any more.

Post script: That's if you believe in the bible by the way, or any holy book. They didn't arrive by fax from heaven. They were written by charlatans who wanted to divide and rule us so it's easier to control us. Peace.

My Bible encourages me not to argue (esp religious arguments) cos they only lead to quarrels and end up upsetting people. {2 Timothy 2:23-24} so I would just drop my point and leave.

I'm not a regular church goer, and sometimes I don't visit the same church for a long while, so I am not in the habit of paying tithe to a church. I personally see my parents as my spiritual head, as they have done a fab work in my religious upbringing, a work no pastor can do. They're also the ones going on their knees praying for me daily, so I give them my tithe in addition to whatever monthly upkeep I would normally send them.

Sometimes, I have reason to give to the less privileged, and ppl who I identify to be in genuine need (I'm not trying to blow trumpet abeg). I do these with the understanding of what the Bible says :"whatever you do, do it as unto the Lord"

The Church have failed in their duty of caring for the Sheep as seen in the practice of the Apostles even the Apostles did not collect tithes so WHY is the current church copying the Levitical order yet claim to be in the Apostolic era.. ...

Our service is unto God not institutions, Read what James 1:27 says about true religion.


Now is tithe a prerequisite for Heaven? The love Jesus taught was to care for the needy... So for me I stand no damnation if the supposed ' "Tithe' is used to help the needy...

Giving tithe to the church instead of helping the poor and needy people around you is synonymous to wasting your money.

What is the essence of paying what you won't feel the impact? Nothing!!! Some gullible Christians are just comforting themselves with the the fallacious believe "you're blessed after paying tithe"
Who bless you for paying the tithe when there are some people in your family, neighborhood and even in your church dying of hunger?

As for me, instead of paying tithe, contribution for the poor in the church, I will rather go to my street and give money to widows and the needy.

This tithe issue should have been no issue if truly God has ordained it and a transparent proof can be seen in the bible.

I believe God will never cause any confusion as regards to how He is to be served.

If tithe is truly from God, there shouldn't be this much back n forth amongst Christians

part of the tithes were meant to attend to someone in needs, stranded strangers and the fatherless ones and since the church is no longer using the tithe for it original purpose, you are free to give it directly to these people. in my opinion the tithe should be scrape entirely since it is hard to meet it original purpose in this modern world
