Description : The premise of Why Christians Should Not Tithe is simple: God, having freed his people from the Law through faith in Jesus Christ, does not place on them a burden from the Law. The thesis is equally as simple: Christian giving is not a tithe. Christ challenges the believer to give himself and his possessions to the gospel cause, but the tithe fixes a limit and implies nothing more is needed. Why Christians Should Not Tithe is a thorough discussion of the four tithes in Moses' Law, Jesus' comments on tithing, and the twenty-one principles of giving developed by the apostles' in Acts and the epistles. Included is a brief review of the history of tithing from post-apostolic times to the present. The book concludes with a new paradigm for giving not based on the tithe, but on the apostles' doctrine of Christian giving. Should Christians tithe to support the gospel? Here is a study that will help every Christian discover the biblical answer for him or her self.

Description : Within the Christian Church, there are always sticking points that cause disputes, and the question of tithing is one of the big ones. Everyone in the church has an opinion about whether Christians should or should not tithe.But an opinion is not the truth. The only source of truth we have today is the words of God written down for our instruction in the Bible. So it is to the Bible we must go to get the definitive answers about the question: Should Christians tithe?Allow me to pose a couple of questions. How important do you think it is to worship God correctly? How important is it to follow the teachings and instructions of Jesus Christ who is after all the head and the founder of the Christian church?My answer to these questions is that it is beyond important. It's critical! And it is also critical that we understand the modes, practices, and methods of our worship to ensure we get it right.To tithe or not to tithe is a serious issue for the modern church, and it is not merely a question of church finances. Tithing goes to the very core of the truth of the New Covenant and unless addressed and understood correctly it can render the New Covenant ineffective, just as the Israelites did not understand the correct mode of worship when they made the idol of a calf.In this book, we take an evidence and fact-based approach to seeking the truth of this issue. We will only consider the scriptures to address this matter, and we will look at the broader picture to gain an understanding of the foundations of the two covenants to better understand the implications of tithing for the Christian church.If tithing is not properly understood, especially as to whether a person should or should not tithe, and if the question about tithing is not dealt with correctly within the Christian church, it will nullify the truth of the New Covenant, potentially cutting people off from Christ. That, I believe is how serious the matter of tithing and the ramifications that tithing has for the Christian church today, must be considered.In this book, we will examine what the scriptures say about tithing and using that knowledge we will come to an understanding of whether Christians should tithe or not. You may be asking yourself whether the answer I came to in this book comes down to whether tithing should form part of Christianity or not. Did I come to a position? Yes, I did, based on scripture alone. And I believe it is the correct position because the Bible tells me so.Getting this question right is critical to the modern church, and if you don't want to pay for this book here go across to my website to find out how you can get a free copy. I don't want to put any boundaries up to prevent anyone from finding out the truth of this matter. It is that important to all Christians.

Description : For a lot of Christians, tithing is a deeply ingrained tradition, reinforced each week on television and in the pulpits by people they look up to. However, those who take the time to study tithing as practiced in the bible, will find out that Christian or storehouse tithing is both unbiblical and cannot be justified. Why the fixation with tithing? Why all the manipulation and deceit on a topic Christians should not be concerned about?.WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT TITHING?No Percent Tithe is an easy to read book that shows you what the Bible really says about paying tithes. The book, 100% backed by bible verses, clarifies and answers the questions you have about tithing. Questions like: - Who Paid Tithes Under the Law of Moses?- Did Abraham and Jacob tithe?- Can you tithe money?- Can pastors ask for a tithe?- Why do pastors demand the tithe?- Are you cursed if you don't tithe?- How should you give to God?The author uses charts and diagrams to explain and contrast tithing under Moses's Law with Christian storehouse tithing and also looks into how Abram (Abraham) tithed. Christians who read No Percent Tithe will be surprised to find out that: - Abraham, Jacob and early Christians did not tithe;- Jesus, Peter and Paul could not receive tithes;- It is unbiblical to tithe money or your income;- The priests received ONE% not 10% of the harvest;- Pastors are not the modern day Levites;- There was money in those days, but God did not want money as a tithe.Here are the chapter titles: - Tithing under Moses- Why tithing to your church is not biblical- Abraham and Jacob did not tithe- 5 reasons pastors teach untruths about tithing- Why Moses's law does not apply to Christians- God's Portion Was ONE%- NO % Tithe ... Just Give- Why you should say no to tithing After reading NO % Tithe you will understand God's plan for Christian giving and realise that storehouse tithing is unbiblical. The Bible says that we must rightly divide the word of truth to prevent confusion in our thinking (2 Timothy 2:15), and that is why you must read the No % Tithe book. If your goal is to be free to give as led by God and not be 'forced' to give to a church or ministry, purchase a copy of this boo

Description : Tithing still remains one of the most debatable topics within the realms of Christianity. It's a fact that pastors prey on the gullibility of their congregants, aptly backed by their shallow minds to squeeze their hard-earned money from them by quoting obsolete scriptures to carry out their schemes. There are several verses in the Bible that show Christians- followers of Christ are not mandated to pay tithes. But interestingly, these same Christians allow their pastors whom they hold as demigods to interpret the verses for them. What aren't preachers telling us about their demands for tithes and their requests for offerings? The short answer is we're being deceived, bullied, and manipulated. The longer answer is this book. It asks tough questions and provides biblical and common sense answers. Here are the chapter titles: -Why the System of Mandatory Tithes and Manipulated Offerings Must Be Destroyed -The Psychology of Clergy Financial Manipulation -The Crisis of Crisis Giving -How Much Does It Cost the American Church to Preach the Gospel? -How Much Did It Cost Jesus to Preach the Gospel? -How Much Did It Cost the Early Church to Preach the Gospel? -The Creation and Rise of the Financial Tithe -Answers to Pre-Law Arguments for Mandatory New Testament Tithes -The Definition of Tithes During the Period of the Law of Moses -Who Paid Tithes Under the Law of Moses? -The Law of Tithing and the Tithing Holiday -The Most Abused Scriptures in the Bible: Malachi 3:8-11 -Understanding the Original Sabbath Helps Us Understand the Original Tithe -Man Was Not Made for the Sabbath--Or the Tithe -The Law of Human Need is Superior to the Law of the Tithe -The Gospels Do Not Endorse Christian Tithing -The New Testament Condemns Christian Tithing -The Apostles Condemned Legalism (and thus Christian Tithing) in the Early Church -No Christian Tithing in Hebrews 7 -Jesus is the Last Legitimate Tithe -Christians Must Give According to the Law of Love

Description : Tithing is one of those subjects where most Christians have limited knowledge. As a result, most church leaders have seized the occasion to demand a tithe from the members of their respective churches. However, when asked why they pay 10% of their monthly income into their local church, most Christians simply say, "It's in the Bible" or "My pastor told me to tithe." No wonder the Scripture clearly says, "My people perish for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6)." First, tithes were not paid in physical cash. Tithing was an old covenant law that was only applicable in Judaism. With the resurrection of Jesus Christ, tithing has no place in Christianity. Jesus did not pay tithes or teach his followers to tithe. Likewise the early apostles did not pay tithes or teach their fellow brethren to practice tithing.In this book, the author will be exposing the subject of biblical tithing. Furthermore, he will outline the various reasons why followers of Jesus Christ SHOULD NOT practice tithing.

Description : Five hundred years ago Martin Luther posted his ninety-five theses or grievances to the door of the All Saints' Church of Wittenberg and condemned the Catholic Church's teaching of indulgences as nothing but a scheme to raise money for the church. It is a supreme irony of history that, five hundred years later, it is now a subset of the Protestant Church that is defrauding the faithful. The Catholic Church's teaching of indulgences and the evangelical movement's teaching of tithing-to-be-blessed are substantially the same and lead to the same result: In both cases, the church walks away with a bag of money and the Christian walks away with a bag full of empty promises. This book explains why I am losing faith in the church, but finding faith in Christ. The reason for this is that I began finding answers to some of the most elusive questions about God. Something is preventing God from doing all the good that he would otherwise want to do. But here is the problem. How can God have limitations? If he has limitations, then he must not be divine. However, there is one thing that could prevent a good, all-powerful God from doing all the good that he would otherwise want to do that would not detract at all from his omnipotence. What this is and how it holds the key to unlocking some of the most perplexing mysteries of God is explained in this book.

Description : This book brings to light what men say about the tithe of income and what God says on the subject. The book defines and contrasts a tithe as understood by men and as interpreted by God. It answers the question of whether tithe is of the old testament law or not; whether God requires our tithes of income or are a means of extortion of money from believers. Is tithe of income in the scriptures and have you seen where God has expressly commanded believers to tithe their income? The book precludes the author's opinions and interpretations of what the word of God says on tithes. It draws only from the interpretation provided by God in the scripture. This ideology bases on real scriptural truth that only God should interpret his word. The book analysis the tithes of Abraham and the argument that tithes predate the law. It scrutinizes the different types of tithes in the Mosaic law. It debunks when tithing is allowed by God and its implication on Christians. Further, the book evaluates why Jesus never preached tithing in his gospel. At the end of this book, you should be able to answer the question from God's perspective, whether a tithe of income made to man or God - whether it is scripture-based or not. This series of books, the word of God uncut, speak to the source of information in the Christian church. Information doe not only empower people but emancipates people as well. The church has not escaped from misinformation about God and the word of God. Many factors have contributed, such as greed and manipulation by some men of God; incompetence and erroneous teachings by men that have not been called by God. Lack of godly spirituality amongst men of God. Nonetheless, this does not mean that you are unable to find the truth on your own.Whatever the circumstances, this series of books unravels topics and issues that men of God teach or are generally accepted by people in the church as absolute truth, yet the word of God says otherwise. It is true that people have created many doctrines and teach many things on the word of God based on their understanding or interests; neglecting and ignoring what God says on a subject matter. Irrespective of what men teach the truth of the word of God can never be suppressed. There will always be a few that will rise with the hunger to ensure that you hear the complete story and begin to understand the word of God for what it is and not what you perceive or have been influenced to believe. Do you know that most people never get a perfect score on a test despite answering all questions and having studied the material? The reason this happens is that each wrong answer is a perception of your interpretation of what you read, but not what it said. This book aims to open up your mind to begin to read and understand scriptures for what they say and not what you perceive.I know and understand that truth is not validated by popularity or credibility of a man. People can choose to ignore and avoid the truth, but it is never invalidated. When you go back for it, you find it, but no man can search for a lie and find it. Therefore, avoiding the truth is delaying your reality. Begin today to find the truth about the tithe of income - lies of men or word of God.

Description : If you have been around for any length of time, you may have seen that in the last few years the subject of tithing has caused so many arguments, name-calling and ill feelings among Christians, especially on the social media. But a careful study of the matter in the light of scriptures reveals this shouldn't be the case. In this insightful book, Yinnkah Durojaiye, a pastor-teacher clears the air by differentiating between paying of tithe and giving of tithe. He also reveals how the former is not expected of the believer in the Church Age while the latter is still recommended yet, under the principle of Grace and Christian liberty.The author argues that PAYment of Tithe as an obligation was a taxing system under the Mosaic Law. Since Christians are not under the Mosaic Law but grace, taxing by tithing is never once demanded from them in the New Testament under the Church Age. When you read "Grace - Tithe - Giving", you will identify the three forms of tax-tithing, the significance of food crop tithing under the law, the relationship between the principles of Sabbath, Firstfruits and Tithing for Christians, how to lend to the Lord and even whom NOT to give to. You will also find answers to questions like: should Christians tithe? Why ten percent? And lots more ... If you are looking for a simple to read but a practical book on Christian Stewardship from God's perspective, this is it!

Description : TITHING BY FAITH IS A CALL TO RESTORE THE PRINCIPLE OF TITHINGTithing By Faith, calls for a restoration of the principle of tithing in today's Church. But this is not an arbitrary call. Rather it is a recognition of current need and opportunity. Tithing should only occur where its biblical purpose calls for it. Lord designed tithing for His own purposes. So He has used it only when that purpose existed. And that purpose exists today. "The hammer stays in the toolbox until its purpose arises." This is a matter of design and utility.Actually, the purpose for tithing is contemporary with the existence of the Church. And I will prove this from the Scriptures. But only a comparative few Christians practice it today. So local churches have not adequately financed their redemptive ministries. Instead, ministry expectations are reducing to worldly standards. On the average, less than 12% of proclaimed Christians tithe. But the biblical standard for using the principle of tithing has always been 100%. The implications of this statistic are alarming. It reveals a compromised worldview in the visible church. You will find the stats that support this statement alarming. There Is A Controversy About TithingThe ongoing controversy about tithing is not helpful. Those for and against it have presented errant arguments. Arguments that sound good only when they are not tested. Also, little respect is given to Jesus' vision and mission for His Church. But I am thankful to the Lord for the highlights among us. Tithing is a proven principle. It has always provided more than enough, for the support of the redemptive ministry. It is the Lord's sovereign principle for financing this kind of ministry. We need a biblical renewal of the corporate mind of the Church. This solution begins with a different way of looking at our world and the Church's purpose in it. A biblical way of looking at it. The solution is not first more money. It will bring more money but it begins with a paradigm shift. We have to see the principle of tithing through the lens of Scripture. Which is, through the eyes of God. Especially as it places us in relationship to Jesus' vision and mission for His Church. There Are Questions We Must AnswerTo answer these questions, I lead the reader through a study of tithing as presented in Scripture. We review the biblical history of tithing. We look at its spiritual and practical purposes in various settings. This historical overview confirms the sufficiency of tithing for everyone involved. And we will see tithings purpose accomplished in different socio-economic systems. Not only under law but also in its original setting of tithing by faith. This brings to light the continuity of tithing throughout biblical history. I will confirm the nature and power of principle. Especially those principles established by God. When used, the principle of God always delivers its purpose, according to His design. So What Should We Do? In concluding the matter I confirm that Moses' law cannot be our reason for tithing. But also, it should not be our reason for not tithing. What we must consider is how tithing can affect the Churches redemptive ministries. What effect can it have on our pursuit of Jesus' vision and mission for His Church? And also, how will the tither's family budget and standard of living be affected. Biblical precedence confirms God's blessing on the tithing community. There will always be a Cycle Of Total Prosperity in the tithing community.

Description : Todays Christian experience is not what it used to be. So much has changed. One visit to a Sunday morning service and you will know that this is not the church you grew up with. Churn and frustration are at an all-time high as many have voted with their feet and no longer attend worship service. CHURCH - her thirst to be accepted by the world and possess what it has to offer has negatively impacted her preaching and influence on society. Silent, she has no response to the moral decay of our time, yet she takes in more money than most will earn in two life-times. Product pitches from the pulpit and product tables in the lobby are normal and a guaranteed scriptural reference to paying Tithes is inevitable.Laboring over souls on the altar is a thing of the past as many ministries look for ways to be more profitable. Being about My Fathers Business has taken on a whole new meaning as the North American Church struggles to hold to the code of Divine Ethics that was once delivered to the saints by those who once valued the concept of no compromise. You have questions? Sunday Morning Stickup has Biblically based answers concerning the subject of tithes.Click here if you are an author or if you are interested in becoming a published author.http://outskirtspress.com/agent.php?key=182750

Description : Amost everyone knows that the Bible tells God's people that they must tithe their income - that is, to give a tenth of what they earn to the work of the Lord. But unfortunately most people haven't bothered to look at the actual commands in the Law of God that demand the tithe. If they would, they would find that it was for purposes that are no longer possible in our Church age. And yet most pastors and ministers almost demand it of their congregations (even though they know that Christians are not obligated to fulfill the Law of Moses now!) becuase they are desperate to finance the physical needs of the church. The New Testament does not teach the necessity for Christians to tithe - instead, it has a far greater measure of devotion for God's people to attain.

Description : The way tithing is practiced today in most Christian churches is not found anywhere in the Bible? It's a fact! The teaching that God requires Christians to give ten percent of their income based on Malachi 3:10 is categorically false. The Tithe Lie provides scriptural information demonstrating that there is nor ever was a command or a law from God, either in the Old or New Testament, that required Christians to give ten percent of their income.This book is not written to condemn financial support for ministry. To the contrary, Christians should give joyfully and regularly to the degree that they can. But they should not be forced, threatened, coerced or manipulated into giving. Thus, this book is written to free Christians from false teachings surrounding the issue of tithing and reinstate the joy of giving. After all, God loves a cheerful giver (II Cor. 9:7).

Description : Two young Harvard MBAs on the fast track to wealth and success tell their story of God's transforming power and how Scripture brought them to the startling conclusion that they should give the majority of their money away to those in need. Packed with compelling case studies, research, and practical strategies, God and Money offers an honest look at what the Bible says about generous giving. No matter what your salary may be, God and Money shows you how you can reap the rewards of radical generosity in your own life. *100% of the author royalties goes toward Christian ministries focused on spreading the Gospel and providing for those in need* “John and Greg realize what everyone should know—that middle-class Americans are among the richest people in world history. It's time for Christ-followers to understand that God has bigger purposes than increasing our standard of living—He wants us to increase our standard of giving." —Randy Alcorn, from the Foreword of God and Money John Cortines and Gregory Baumer met as Harvard MBA candidates in a men's Bible study and stopped asking "How much should I give?" and started asking "How much do I need to keep?" With their top-notch education and rising careers, Cortines and Baumer were guaranteed comfort and security for the rest of their lives.

What Others are Saying About God and Money "This is one of the most thoughtful and well researched books on giving that I have had the pleasure of reading. The frameworks presented in the book can be used by people at all stages of experiencing the joy of generosity." —Waters Davis, President of National Christian Foundation Houston. "With uncommon transparency, John and Greg provide a Gospel-centered and practical perspective on wealth. Through a leveling critique of comfortable Christianity, they challenge us to wholeheartedly pursue the joy of generosity. Read this book and you will be inspired, convicted and thinking differently about using what God has given you for Kingdom impact." —Peter Greer, President & CEO of HOPE International and coauthor of Mission Drift "In God and Money, Baumer and Cortines challenge Christian readers to consider afresh what generosity looks like in light of the Scripture's radical teaching and the day of affluence in which we live. Whether or not you agree with all their conclusions or personal practices, you will be challenged and inspired." —Robert L. Plummer, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "I greatly enjoyed reading God and Money! God used the framework Greg and John described to challenge my perspective and practice of generosity. I realized in reading their book that my personal bias is more saver and spender than servant. What I truly desire to be is a fully surrendered servant of Jesus. This book gave me practical frameworks to move in that direction." —Todd Harper, President, Generous Giving "The mission of Harvard Business School is "to educate leaders who make a difference in the world," and in John and Greg that mission has been fulfilled abundantly. It has been my privilege to be their teacher, their colleague and now their friend; and I wish them Godspeed as they take the transformative message found in God and Money out to their community and to the world beyond. I have learned to expect great things from them, and they have yet to disappoint." —Derek van Bever, Senior Lecturer in Business Administration; Director, Forum for Growth and Innovation, Harvard Business School Preview God and Money Table of Contents Part I: Foundations Chapter 1: Wealth and Giving in the Bible Chapter 2: Seven Core Principles for Biblical Wealth and Giving Chapter 3: Motivations for Giving Chapter 4: Trends and Movements in Generosity Part II: Frameworks Chapter 5: The "Three S's Framework:" Spender, Saver, or Servant?

Description : Some have said that the word "scam" is too strong for a book that argues against the church's most sacred cow, but "scam" is exactly the right word because tithing has been put forth as a duty that will earn that which Christ suffered and died to freely give us. Not only is it wrong to suggest that tithing will do what Christ died to do, such as open heaven or make one right with God, but such teaching is an insult to His sacrifice and in reality, an enemy to the Cross even as circumcision was in the early church. Our ministers have been naively leading the church back under the Old Testament Law, and its curse, with imagined tithing promises that have gone way beyond even that which Malachi promised. Under the guise of "obedience, faithfulness and stewardship," we've been duped into believing we must prove ourselves without realizing that practicing the Law (tithing) blocks us from becoming sons and heirs according to Galatians 4: 5. Do you know that The book of Malachi was never intended to be instruction to the New Testament church? All the ordinances in Malachi (including tithing) were nailed to Jesus' cross, according to Colossians chapter 2? Tithing is part of the Law according to Matt. 23: 23, Malachi 3: 7, and Hebrews 7: 18? The practice of tithing, the Law, can expose you to the "curse of the Law" causing incurable sicknesses, debt, death, and many other problems, according to the Apostle Paul in Galatians 3: 10? The practice of tithing actually removes you from the state of grace and places you back the category of "sinner"? Hebrews 5: 4 Tithing causes you to "frustrate the grace of God," and causes "Christ to profit you nothing"? Galatians 2: 21 and 5: 2 Making tithing a practicetoday actually causes the New Testament to become "another gospel" according to Paul in Galatians 1: 6? Order The Great Tithing Scam today and find out what else tithing will or won't do.

Description : The tithe today is a most misunderstood topic! Many have relegated it to a thing of the past (as outdated), while others have misunderstood and misapplied its meaning and practice in the church today. This book will attempt to explain the tithe from strictly a New Covenant perspective. For most, who teach in favor of the tithe for today, do so from the Old Testament writings. It is rare to find those who teach the tithe from the New Testament. Many believe the New Testament writings have nothing to say about the tithe, while others apply the tithe today from an Old Covenant Perspective. In this book we will show how the tithe is for today, and a very important part of New Covenant giving. This revelation of the New Covenant tithe is a Pauline revelation. Many see the tithe as only belonging to the Law of Moses. In this book, we will show from the New Testament that the tithe belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ. My hope in writing this book is that those who believe the tithe is not for the New Covenant will come to understand its importance in today\'s church; and others who apply the tithe to the letter of the law will come to understand the tithe today as operating under faith alone. The tithe is timeless, found in Christ from the foundation of the world, expressed through the faith of Abraham, and immortalized in the Law of Moses: today the tithe has come full circle, from Christ to Abraham, through Moses, and now returning back to Christ. Just as Moses was given the plans of the tabernacle upon the holy mount, God inspired Abraham\'s faith to tithe the spoils of war. This same tithe was commemorated in the Law of Moses as a shadow of those greater things to come found in the person, life, work, ministry, and passion [death, resurrection, and ascension] of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is the tithe according to the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Description : Christian churches today have misinterpreted Malachi 3:8–12 to mean that God wants each Christian to give 10 percent of his or her gross pay to the church on His behalf. The promise that God will "open the windows of heaven and pour out so much blessing that they will not have room to receive" has caused poor Christians to gave sacrificially as they hope for this windfall. This book is the result of a comprehensive study that reveals that God never asked for money for the tithes. God told us exactly what He wanted us to bring for the tithes, and it was not money. The book reveals why God would never have asked for money, and it could be very liberating to learn that you do not have to pay this 10 percent "church tax."

Description : Why do faithful Christians struggle in receiving the increases that are promised in the Bible? The Bible states how good measures or portions will be given to Christians in an overflow manner. Why doesn't this happen consistently in the life of most Christians? I have discovered an almost lost truth that has been hidden from many Christians by a traditional practice in most churches. I promise when you find out what it is; you will have to get rid of some old bottles before receiving this truth.

Description : Giving was very important in the churches I grew up in and tithing was without a doubt, paramount. The pastor made sure we understood the difference between tithes and offerings and how the tithe was "a mandatory tax" and the offering was above and beyond the tithe. It was explicitly clear that the tithe was not an offering. I never totally agreed with the tithe teaching, but it was part of the fundamentals of Christianity and I had to accept it. After I got married and had two young sons, I went to church two to three times a week and all day on Sunday. Have you ever wondered why some churches pass the offering bucket when it's time to give, while other churches have the people stand and walk around to give? This is because the leadership understands that when people are made to stand publicly and walk around and pass the offering basket, they are put in a position of embarrassment if they have nothing to give, and it works like a charm! Most people are paid on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. However, the tithe is requested during every service and separate from the offering in many churches. This is also done purposefully. Even though many members pay their tithes during Sunday Service, the request being made during weekly services places more pressure for members to give although they have already given. I've seen the most egregious abuses in Church regarding money: getting paid for prophesies, reading Scriptures on the punishment for breaking vows, and emphasizing living under the curse for not paying "the tax of the tithe." In hindsight, I cannot believe some of the errors pertaining to finances that I've witnessed in church. They do happen and continue to occur. In 2002, I started a new church. And like every other church in America, I continued to teach the doctrine of tithing. Some of my members struggled with giving ten percent of their income, while others, like me, had been indoctrinated and conditioned to do so for so long that we gave without hesitation. I was determined to take up only one offering during any service instead of the multiple offerings I had grown up witnessing and I was accustomed to. As a pastor, I did not take up two offerings for the tithe and the offering, but took both at the same time. I hated that so much of church was about money and I did not want my members feeling the same way I felt when I attended church. So I spent as little time as possible on giving. There were even services that I did not solicit finances from the people. However, in the end this still proved to be only baby steps in the right direction. It wasn't until I went through a season where I lost everything and in my anger towards God about my misfortune, that He challenged me to question everything I ever believed in and completely start over. Many of us grew up in religious environments that frowned upon leadership being questioned about anything. As a result, we have that same attitude with our Heavenly Father. However, if we are not asking questions, we are not learning. God does not have a problem with us asking questions. As a student of the Word of God I began to ask the Holy Spirit about everything taught to me by the church and this journey has lead to many of the books I have published. A Revelation of Tithing came from this experience. May the truth set you free.
