Monetary Tithing Was Not Required

Jesus was a Carpenter. His apostles were mostly fishermen. And guess what????
 
They were not required to tithe.
 
Even Jesus reveals that they were not required to tithe their money in Luke 12:33. There, we read:
 
Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
 
Five things to notice in this verse.
 
1. Jesus told the apostles to give the money gained to the poor in the form of alms.
2. Jesus did not tell them to tithe money gained to the House of God.
3. Giving alms to the poor is what lays up treasure in Heaven…not tithing.
4. The fact that Jesus told the apostles to give money gained from sales to the poor in the form of alms PROVES EMPHATICALLY that God did not require money to be tithed to the House of God.
5. If God required money to be tithed to the House of God, then Jesus told His apostles to disobey God in Luke 12:33.
 
Disobedience is an act of rebellion. Rebellion is a sin that is comparable to witchcraft.
