imageWhen a pastor uses Malachi 3:8-10 to teach that God requires the congregation to tithe their monetary income, that pastor is deceitfully handling the Word of God.

God said it was an agricultural tithe that was to go to the Temple, not a monetary tithe.

God said the tithe was to go to the storehouse at the Temple, not to a Church bank.

God said it was the Levites that were to tithe to the storehouse, not the congregation.

The preacher who will not preach Malachi 3:8-10 as it is written is a thief. And the congregant that tithes his money after hearing that pastor is a blind follower of the blind.
