A Changed Ordinance
by Ronald W Robey
 
Isaiah 24:5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
 
Many Pastors today have certainly “changed the ordinance” of God’s holy tithe. God declared that His holy tithe was to come from agriculturla crops, flocks and herds. In the word of God, from the giving of the Law and forward, we see that His holy tithe was consistently of agricultural crops, flocks, and herds.
 
But man has changed the ordinance
 
a) from that of agricultural crops, flocks and herds, to that of monetary wages/income.

b) from to be eaten by family, Levites, widows, orphans and foreigners in the land of Canaan, to be put in a Church bank account.

c) from required only of the children of Israel, to required of Christians.

d) from every third year, to weekly, bi-weekly, or… at the most… monthly.

e)  From not to be taken to the House of God unless you are of the tribe of Levi, to to be taken to the House of God.

 
Yes, man has “changed the ordinance” of God’s holy tithe into something that God never intended it to be.
 
Since God never changes, and He declared that the Earth was cursed because the children of Israel had “changed his ordinance”,  could it be possible that the problems we face in our present world are linked to the fact that man has changed God’s ordinance of tithing?
