Articles about Tithe

The word tithe means ‘one-tenth.’ Many Christian churches teach the erroneous idea that God demands one tenth of your income be given to your local church.

Some people believe we should continue teaching unbiblical ideas because they can't think of a practical way to do God's work without those unbiblical ideas.

Does the Bible teach that Christians should give 10% of their income to their local church?

Tithing did occur before the Mosaic Law was given. There are actually three kinds of tithing in the Bible...the way Abraham did it, the way Jacob did it, and the way that the Jews did it.

Why am I writing this article? Because, in all of those years, I've never heard any preacher or teacher explain the Biblical basis for tithing...and I think it's time someone addressed the issue.
