I'm sure many people reading this have never heard of "pauper's tithe" or "poor tithe". I have gone through many sermons both online and in real life but I have never heard any Nigerian pastor explain this concept.

So, what is pauper's tithe?
The pauper's tithe, (Hebrew: מַעְשַׂר עָנִי‬ ma'sar ani), Maseer ani, is a hebrew word taken from the old testament that refers to the tithe that is reserved for the levites and the poor (widows, orphans beggars).

This can be seen in the book of Deuteronomy-

(Deuteronomy 14:28)
At the end of three years you shall bring forth all the tithe of your produce in that year, and shall lay it up inside your gates; And the Levite, because he has no part nor inheritance with you, and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, who are inside your gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.”

(Deuteronomy 26:12)
When you have finished tithing all the tithes of your produce in the third year, the year of the tithe, you shall give them to the Levite, the stranger, the orphan, and the widow, so that they can eat to satiety in your cities.


In modern times, Orthodox Jews give a tenth of their income to charity. Those in Isreal give some of their harvest to the poor. In traditional practice, this pauper's tithe was the third tithe. The first two had to do with church. In modern times, tithing to the poor/charity is more common among jews since there is disagreement to who is a true levite/descendant of levites.


I just want to really ask why Nigerian pastors do not preach about this poor man's tithe? Is it because they are so engrossed in filling their pockets?

Another preaching that's dying in the church is that of giving to the poor as commanded by Jesus, while giving to the church is the new massage.

I truly wonder how we have reached the stage where giving to the church supersedes giving to the poor.

I think you know.

A few conmen have noticed that Christians hardly ever touch their bible let alone read it. So they twist it to suit their agenda (i.e. amassing wealth).

They deceive us by staging/claiming false miracles and using our ignorance against us by tying our destiny and salvation to tithe paying. Telling you that you can be rich here on earth if you are faithful in paying your tithe. Even when there is no scriptural evidence, basis or backing to support them. It's all about "grace to prosper".

And we mumuishly follow them

Because we have simply refused to read.

Jesus is clear about whom to give to. Jesus even says those who support the poor are candidates for heaven (Matt:25)
The Law is clear about whom the tithes (if we must pay) should go to.


But our pastors (who by the way are assuming the roles of "spiritual levites" ) will tell you to give to the church instead of the poor.

We know how we got here

Meanwhile Did you know that back in the 1800's negro slaves had their own Bible?
Slave Bible From The 1800s Omitted Bible Passages That Could Incite Rebellion

In the Slave Bible Passages that could have prompted rebellion were removed, And verses that reinforced the institution of slavery, were kept.

If you study the scriptures you would understand that we are in the last days. This bible verse says it all
"[i]For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear"[/i] (2 Tim 4:3)
Expect more drama because there is nothing you can do about it. Many churches are corrupt as the undiluted word of God is longer preached as it was during Scripture Union area. Many of us condemned them including myself but I have come to realise that they were right all along.

Thank you for this. I have seen many selfish and even greedy pastors. This isn’t to attack pastors bt stating an obvious trend and observation.

With the exception of very wealthy churches most churches rather prioritise the payment of pastor's salary. In some cases church revenue may not even cover the cost of operation or even pay pastor's salary so the issue of the poor may not even come into play.

In my family church ECWA our head pastor still receives #50,000/month salary which is just too bad for someone who has spent over a decade as a minister.

Shut up! Change starts but first, with an idea. Laying blames causes stagnation. He brought this up, the best thing you would have done was to take it up yourself and see what you can do with the info. Stop pondering on if the preacher practices the words he preaches, listen and if they are good, practice them.
