No Proof

Concerning Abram’s tithe, it is important to note that there is no biblical record that says that Abram tithed his monetary income to Melchizedek.  Abram tithed spoils of war…spoils that Abram promised God he would not take as his own property.

It is also important to note that Abram’s tithe appears to have been a one-time event, not weekly, not monthly, not annually.

Also, Abram’s tithe was not by command of God.

The only similarity between Abram’s tithe and the tithes required of the children of Israel, is that neither Abram, nor the children of Israel, tithed of their monetary income.

Given the biblical fact that no one person in the entire Bible was commanded to tithe his monetary income, why should one believe that God expects tithes of monetary income of Christians today?

Those who use Malachi 3:10 as their reason for tithing their monetary income are not even obeying Malachi 3:10.

Malachi 3:10 was speaking of the tithe required by the Law. Malachi was calling for agricultural tithes to be brought to the storehouse, not monetary tithes.
