Even more interesting is why these Pastors would never preach that it is scriptural to eat your tithe, and a leave a portion of it for them (that's even of they claim to be Levites of the new testament) as you deem fit;

Deuteronomy 14 v 23-27
23 And before the Lord your God, in the place that he will choose, to make his name dwell there, you shall eat the tithe of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, and the firstborn of your herd and flock, that you may learn to fear the Lord your God always. 24 And if the way is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, when the Lord your God blesses you, because the place is too far from you, which the Lord your God chooses, to set his name there, 25 then you shall turn it into money and bind up the money in your hand and go to the place that the Lord your God chooses 26 and spend the money for whatever you desire—oxen or sheep or wine or strong drink, whatever your appetite craves. And you shall eat there before the Lord your God and rejoice, you and your household. 27 And you shall not neglect the Levite who is within your towns, for he has no portion or inheritance with you.

I am still searching where exactly tithes is now money as opposed to farm produce and livestock!

And also, why Christians ought to tithe from their income because Abram tithed voluntarily from the spoils of war

Jewish culture and religion not Jesus, if u read ur bible well u will know he gave women rights to speak and even declare his resurrection to others.


The Bible is an intriguing book of truths and mysteries. U may not understand everything bt neither do we understand everything about science and how everything works.

I enjoy both science and the Bible.

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.


Last day? I guess you mean end of the year. Go and tell that to the money focused pastors who have over 100,000 seater auditorium and private jets that we are in the last days. You'd be surprise they will call fire from heaven on you.

When some are still busy constructing multi-million$$$ project, you're saying last days. If na play stop am jare.

Those are sects . They claim Islam but they are not Muslim.

They follow their shehu, their founder and leader with different beliefs, saying and actions .

They do not follow rosul.



The first terrorist that claim Islam emerged after the death of rosul.

He has already told his companions such groups will emerge. He said they are not Muslim although they speak Arabic, read Quran, fast, go to hajj but they will go out of Islam like arrow goes through it's target.

He ordered his companions to kill them..


..

They killed them then..



Every group, that name themselves, have a leader and a founder..

They are not Muslim..

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?

Simple, cos its bad for business, but they're quick to quote Malachi 3:8. Moreover, The sheeples are too bound by fear n greed to seek d truth, so business will continue to boom for d business men called pastors.

tHIS IS A REALLY NEW opening i have to check. i pay tithe and i need to know if the pastors are in charge of distributing to the orphans and widows or if i have to pay another. This i have to check so i don't sin against God.
Though, in my church the pastors help the orphans and the widows alike.

So you still believe church these days is about the poor or salvation.

My friend it's about who can carve out the biggest church business empire. The difference between Dangote & churches is that Dangote produces tangible goods or services and pays taxes. Churches do neither and they sell false dreams. grin cheesy

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.
That is because they want to replace themselves with the role of Jesus by putting themselves as mediator to God. It is very sad.

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"wink will tell you to give to the church instead of the poor.

We know how we got here

Go back to your pastor who has tied your destiny and salvation to tithe paying and leave me alone. Whatever I do is my business. I dont need to brag to feel fulfilled unlike you low soul whose lips are attached to your pastor's butt by default.
