Tithing was a part of The Old Testament Law Minister Williams. NOT for christians after CHRIST death. You show me anywhere in The New Testament a command to pay tithes, and I'll tear the page out and eat it. JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF was GOD in the flesh when HE walked this earth, but, is in Heaven now and operate in our hearts as The Holy Spirit of GOD spoke more on giving alms to the poor, look in Matthews 6: 1-4, another place to look is James 1: 26-27 this is about giving to the widows and fatherless children NOT paying tithes(10%). When you read The WORD of GOD WE MUST PRAY TO GOD(JESUS CHRIST) for understanding and HE will give it to us. Look at the people from the first church, the book of Acts 4: 31-37 when the people gave it was NOT a tithe(10%), and the aposles distributed to ALL that had need, do you think in your own heart, soul, and mind that they are doing this today. The answer is NO SIR!! They allow the government of this world to do it through SSI, Soc. Sec., Welfare, Foodstamps, V.A. Compensations, ect. The church is NOT truly serving the tables anymore, but, the prosperity pimps(preachers) are serving themselves. If you look into Malachi 3: 10 where MOST preachers love to go to convict the poor in spirit to give them money, read down to verses 11-12 and you will see that THE LORD is NOT speaking about money(mammon) but, fruits, or what is grown from the ground and HE will open up the windows of heaven(the clouds) and pour them out a blessing(rain) that there will cause great growth of your fruit along with HIM(GOD) giving the increase of the earth(fruits), so that the poor, widows, and fatherless can glean the feilds and have enough to eat for themselves too, and HE will NOT allow the insects, like the locust and caterpillars devour your land. STOP BEING DECEIVED BY THE ENEMY!!! Be blesssed in our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST who is blessed forever. Amen.
