Warn Them!
by Ronald W Robey
Venom: Most men forget to tithe. It is up to the women to remind their men to tithe their weekly checks to the Church.
Anti-Venom: Given the fact that the Bible says God’s holy tithe was restricted to agricultural crops and livestock from the Promised Land, (Lev. 27:30-33; Deut. 12:1,10-11) no one should be tithing their money to the Church.
Women should not be reminding their men to tithe. Instead, they should be warning them not to tithe. If they are not warned about the monetary tithe lie, they will bow to the preacher’s word and neglect God’s word.
Pastors are handling the word of truth deceitfully, taking verses that pertain to a commandment for agricultural crops and livestock and preaching a commandment that is totally foreign to the word of God.
The pastor’s doctrine of a monetary tithe requirement allows them to effectively extort money from congregation members who reveal they are ignorant as to what God’s word says concerning God’s holy tithe.
The pattern of giving for the saved of God is not monetary tithing. It is a voluntary giving from the heart. (read Acts 4:32ff; 2 Cor. 9:6-7) No preacher should be dictating what you give. Nor should they be coercing you to give. God wants you to give out of love; not out of guilt or fear.
When you accept the preacher’s doctrine without looking to see if it is in God’s word, you are guilty of placing the preacher’s word as more authoritative than God’s word.
That is idolatry.
