The Modern “Church” is Heading Toward Rejection
by Ronald W Robey

Argument: God said in His word that tithing is required. And Jesus said He did not come to destroy the Law.

 
 
Rebuttal: Yes, God’s word does say that tithes are required.
 
However, God’s word also says,
 
a) that the required tithe is to be agricultural, not monetary. (Lev. 27:30-33; Deut. 14:22-29; 26:12-17)
 
b) that the required tithe of the land is to be given to the physical descendants of Levi. (Num. 18:24-26; Heb. 7:5-9)
 
c) that the required tithe of the land is not to go to the House of God. (Num. 18:24-28; Neh. 10:37-38)
 
d) that an Aaronic Priest must be present at the giving of the tithe. (Num. 18:24-28; Neh. 10:37-38)
 
e) that the required tithe is to be observed only once one crosses the river Jordan and enters the Promised Land. (Deut. 12:1,10-11)
 
f) that the required tithe is to be given to widows, orphans and foreigners every third year. (Deut. 14:28-29)
 
 
Upon examining what the word of God says concerning God’s holy tithe, it is blatantly evident that today’s tither’s are NOT “obedient to God in the tithe at all.
 
a) Instead of obeying the command to tithe agricultural increase, they disobey God and attempt to pass off ten percent of their monetary income as His required tithe.
 
b) Instead of obeying God’s command to give His tithe to the sons of Levi, they disobey God and give what they say is God’s tithe to a pastor who isn’t even one of Levi’s descendants.
 
c) Instead of obeying God’s command to take His tithe to farming communities, they disobey God and take their “tithe” to their local church.
 
d) Instead of obeying God’s command to have Aaronic Priest present at the time of the giving of His tithe, they disobey God by giving what they say is God’s tithe without an Aaronic Priest present.
 
e) Instead of obeying God’s command that His tithe come from the Promised Land, they attempt to tithe from another geographical location in the world..
 
f) Instead of obeying God’s command to give the tithe to widows, orphans and foreigners every third yea, they disobey God and attempt to tithe to a man that God never authorized to receive tithes in His word.
 
In Hosea 4:6, God said:
 
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
 
How long will they continue to reject what is written in God’s word before He decides to reject them as He did the Priest’s of Israel in Hosea’s day?
 
Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
