It is more dangerous to attempt to offer money to God as tithe, than it is to not attempt to tithe at all.

Allow me to explain,…

 
First, let me quote a couple Old Testament Scriptures,…
 
Leviticus 10:1-2 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.
 
Now, you may be scratching your head, wondering what this passage has to do with tithing. I will show the connection.
 
In Leviticus 27:30-33, God sets the guidelines for what His holy tithe is to come from. The children of Israel were commanded to tithe of the seed of the land, the fruit of the trees, and also tithe every tenth animal to pass under the rod.
 
Now, Nadab and Abihu were killed by God for offering on the altar of God something that God never commanded.
 
The monetary tithe is something that God never commanded in His word. He said His tithe is to be agricultural.
 
Those churches that teach the monetary tithe requirement doctrine each Sunday Morning, (Saturday if you are an Adventist) either offer the tithe up to the Lord at the altar prior to it being taken, or after it is taken.
 
These churches, like Nadab and Abihu, are trying to do things their way instead of God’s way. They are offering at their altar something that God did not authorize, nor command.
 
Offering something that God did not command was dangerous for Nadab and Abihu. How much more dangerous is it for the one who insists God’s tithe is to come from monetary income and offers that up to God, when God said His tithe is come from agricultural increase?
