Bewitched!
by Ronald W Robey

Recently, I was told in no uncertain terms that I am guilty of witchcraft.

Why?

Because my posts on Facebook “could cause some to stop tithing their monetary income to their local church”.

The fact is, I am not the one guilty of witchcraft at all. Rather, it is the Pastor’s who teach that God’s tithe is money,… they are the ones that are guilty of witchcraft..

They have bewitched many in their congregations into believing that God requires monetary tithes, when there is no such requirement written anywhere in the pages of God’s Holy word.

There are three reasons as to why many today believe that God requires tithes of their monetary income:

1. Lack of proper study of God’s Holy word.

2. Lack of understanding what God said His holy tithe is.

3. Lack of sound doctrine from the pulpits in the religious institution they attend

The only commands that God has given in His word concerning His holy tithe are:

1. They are to be agricultural. Leviticus 27:30-33

2. They are to be observed in the Promised Land. Deuteronomy 12:1,10-11

3. They are to be given to Levites, widows, orphans and foreigners in the Promised Land every three years in a seven year cycle. Numbers 18:24-26; Deuteronomy 14:27:29; 26:12

4. The tither is also supposed to eat of a tithe with his family . Deuteronomy 14:22-26

5. If the tither is not a Levite, that tither is not to take his tithe to the House of God. Nehemiah 10:37-38

6. If the tither is not a Levite, that tither is to take his tithe to a farming community to give to a Levite. Nehemiah 10:37-38

7. A descendant of Aaron MUST BE PRESENT at the time that the tithe is given. Nehemiah 10:37-38

The above referenced verses reveal that:

a) If you are tithing money instead of agriculture, you are not obeying the word of God.

b) If you are tithing in any geographical location other than the Promised Land, you are not obeying the word of God.

c) If you are not giving your tithe to Levites, widows, orphans and foreigners in the Promised Land every three years, you are not obeying the word of God.

d) If you are not eating a tithe with your family, you are not obeying the word of God.

e) If you are not a Levite, but take your tithe to the House of God, you are not obeying the word of God.

f) If you are not taking your tithe to a farming community in the Promised Land, you are not obeying the word of God.

g) If you are giving your tithe with no descendant of Aaron present, you are not obeying the word of God.

Pastors would do well to turn from their false doctrine of a monetary tithe requirement and to begin preaching and teaching the truth as it is written in the word of God..
