Court Says Church Cannot Keep Tithes, Part 1
On December 16, 2013 the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a bankruptcy court's decision and ruled that a church had to turn over to a bankruptcy trustee the tithes and offerings it received from a couple because they filed for bankruptcy. Shortly after the couple filed for bankruptcy, the trustee in charge of the bankruptcy went after the church to which the couple had given their tithes for the previous two years. The trustee claimed that the law, under 11 USC 548(a)(1)(B), authorized him to recover all the contributions made by the couple to the church in 2008 and 2009 because the couple contributed more than 15% of their gross annual income to the church (Word of Life Christian Center). The church agreed that the couple gave more than 15% but also held that the law protected the church from having to forfeit 100% of the contributions to the trustee. The church cited section 548(a)(2) and claimed that it was required to return only the portion of the contributions that exceeded 15% of the couple's gross annual income. The court disagreed with the church. It ruled that the language of the law was plain; that even if the contributions exceeded 15% of the couple's annual gross income by just one cent, the church would have to forfeit to the trustee all of the contributions it had received from the couple. Most churches in America do not know that the law allows bankruptcy trustees to render void the tithes that churches receive from its members if the member later files for bankruptcy if the members tithes and offerings combined is greater than 15% of their income.
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
