Extortioners in Disguise
by Ronald W Robey

Jesus never commanded anyone to tithe their monetary income. People need to study their Bibles and stop believing the lie of a monetary tithe requirement.
Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
The word “ravening” in the verse above, is translated from the Greek, “harpax”. It is defined as “preying with rapacity.” Rapacity is “the practice of extorting or exacting by oppressive injustice.”
An interesting thought,… Jesus was warning His Apostle’s to beware of false prophets who would seem to be legit men of God, but were in reality, ravening wolves, i.e.; #extortioners.
Extortion is defined as, “The obtaining of property from another, with his consent, induced by wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear, or under color of official right.”
In our pulpits today, we have pastors who seem to be legit men of God, but are in reality, ravening wolves, i.e.; extortioners.
They will stand behind the pulpit and tell you that God requires you to #tithe your monetary income. And, no doubt, many who are in the dark as to what is actually written in the word of God, will be led astray by their pastor’s deceit.
Many will yield to the monetary tithe requirement lie, dropping either a check that represents 10% of their monetary income, or they will put 10% of their monetary income in the plate in the form of cash.
Many others will use their credit cards or debit cards to “pay” the 10% that they are told God requires them to give to the House of God.
Those who do not study to show themselves approved by God have no idea they are actually being robbed; that their money is being extorted from them by #raveningwolves.
In the Old Testament, God’s commanded tithe…
a) was agricultural. Leviticus 27:30-33
b) was required of the children of Israel only. Leviticus 27:34; Psalms 147:19-20
c) was restricted to the Promised Land. Deuteronomy 6:1-3; 12:1,10-11
d) was the property of the sons of Levi. Numbers 18:24-26; Nehemiah 10:37-38
In the New Testament, God’s commanded tithe,…
a) was still agricultural. Hebrews 7:5-9
b) was still required of the children of Israel only. Hebrews 7:5-9
c) was still restricted to the Promised Land. Hebrews 7:5-9
d) was still the property of the sons of Levi. Hebrews 7:5-9
Given these irrefutable proofs in Scripture that God’s holy tithe was never monetary, and never commanded of the Christian Church, it is even more evident that the pastors who teach that God requires monetary tithes of the Body of Christ,… are indeed ravening wolves.
They are extortioners.
The monetary tithe exists because of lies from the pulpits and ignorance in the pews.
