In the New Testament, we read:

“Galatians 3:11 (KJV)
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, [it is] evident: for, The just shall live by faith.”

Notice that Paul did not say the just shall live by the Law. No, he aid that those who have been justified will live by faith.

One cannot say he is living by faith if he is tithing to avoid a curse from God. The Bible states that Jesus took away the curse of the Law. How can one say he is trusting Jesus for Salvation, yet fear the penalties of the Law?

One cannot say he is living by faith if he is tithing in order to escape Hell. How can one say he has trusted Christ for Salvation, yet trust the Law to keep him out of Hell?

One cannot say one is trusting Jesus Christ for Salvation when one is trusting one’s tithes to earn him a home in God’s eternal Kingdom.

It’s either you trust Christ, or you trust your monetary tithing. You can’t trust both without saying, “God, your Son’s sacrifice was admirable, but I do not trust that sacrifice to be enough. I do not believe your Son is able to save and keep me saved. I have a better idea. I believe I can pay my way out of Hell, and buy my way into Heaven.”

If you trust your monetary tithing will buy you favor with God, you are only deceiving yourself. If it were at all possible for monetary tithing to ensure that one could escape going to hell, we surely would have read such an escape plan in the Word of God. Why, if monetary tithing could ensure eternal life with God, the Son would not have had to be crucified.

God could have had the Apostles teach that tithing was a means of acquiring eternal life. But, no,… eternal life is only found in Christ Jesus. Jesus said that no man comes to the Father but by Him.
