Tithing Works

Tithing works for the tithe collector. He gives 10% of the tithes he receives. Yet, he keeps 90% of those tithes he receives for either himself, or for his religious empire masquerading as a “church”. Of course it works for him. He, or his empire, continues to get richer, while the one who tithes to him or his empire gets poorer.
If he is not working a secular job, his wealth is gotten through the money he extorts from his congregation under the color of “official right”. The poverty of the congregation is due to the money they foolishly give to the rich.
Proverbs 22:16 (KJV)
He that oppresseth the poor to increase his [riches, and] he that giveth to the rich, [shall] surely [come] to want.
But is it truly God who is working for the one collecting tithes?
Since God revealed in His Holy Word that His tithe was to come from agricultural crops and livestock, (Lev. 27:30-33) and the monetary tithe the Pastor is teaching is not the same tithe that God established in His Word, then what is working on the behalf of the monetary tithe teacher is not God. Rather, it is the monetary tithe teacher’s good words and fair speech that is working for him.
Proverbs 7:21 (KJV)
With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
Romans 16:18 (KJV)
For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
Many of the simple fall prey to the harlot because of her fair speech. Likewise, many a simple church member falls prey to the good words and fair speeches of the monetary tithe teacher.
Matthew 23:14 (KJV)
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
Just as the scribes and Pharisees were said to have “devoured widow’s houses” in Matthew 23, teachers of the monetary tithe requirement devour the houses of those who are simple enough to fall prey to their good words and fair speeches.
