Square Pegs are not Meant for Round Holes
by Ronald W Robey
 
When you attempt to put a square peg in a round hole, the peg will not go in the hole without forcefully thrusting it in via a hammer or other hard object.
 
When the square peg is forced in the round hole, both the square peg and the round hole are damaged. They are no longer perfect.
 
The same is true when one attempts to place the Old Testament tithe in the New Covenant Church.
 
The Old Testament tithe does not belong in the New Covenant Church. Yet, many Pastor’s force the tithe into the Church by handling the word of God deceitfully.
 
They will read Leviticus 27:30 to their congregation, bringing their congregation’s focus on the words, “The tithe is the LORD’s; it is holy unto the LORD.” They will read Malachi 3:10 to their congregation, bringing their congregation’s focus on “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse,” claiming that the local church is the storehouse.
 
The truth is, the church is not the storehouse. The storehouse was a three-tiered structure attached to the Temple in Jerusalem. God never authorized anyone to relocate the destination of His holy tithe to be a religious institution doing business as a “church” in His word.
 
Further, God never authorized anyone to redefine His holy tithe to be a tithe of monetary income in His word. His commanded holy tithe was to be agricultural.
 
Just as one has to redefine the shape of the square peg and the round hole in order to make them compatible with each other, Pastors have redefined both God’s holy tithe and God’s Church in order to make them compatible with each other.
 
When Pastor’s redefine the tithe, the tithe is no longer God’s tithe,… it is man’s. When Pastor’s redefine the Church, it is no longer God’s Church,… it is man’s.
 
It would be wise for Pastor’s to leave the square peg (the Old Testament tithe) where it belongs. It does not belong in the circle. (the New Covenant Church)
 
It would be wise for Pastor’s to let God be God instead of trying to usurp His authority as to what is His holy tithe and where His holy tithe belongs.
