When Pastors Preach Tithing

When pastors preach tithing, I listen carefully to their sermon to see if the pastors sermon is in agreement with the Bible on tithing.

When the Bible makes known to the reader the elements of God’s commanded tithe, the tithe is revealed to be food…not money..

When the Bible makes known to the reader the givers of God’s commanded tithe, the givers are to be the children of Israel and the Levites…not the New Covenant Body of Believers in Christ Jesus.

When the Bible makes known to the reader the recipients of God’s commanded tithe, it is bloodline descendants of Levi, widows, orphans, and foreigners who are supposed to receive tithes…not pastors in the New Covenant church.

When the Bible makes known to the reader the geographic location that God’s commanded tithe is to be observed, it is the land of Canaan that tithes are to be observed…not in churches around the world.

When the Bible makes known to the reader the times that the giving of tithes is to be observed, annually or every third year are the only options given. God does not say that tithes are to be given weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

When the pastors sermon on tithing contradicts the word of God, I reject that pastor’s sermon. When the pastor’s sermon contradicts the word of God, you should reject the pastor’s sermon as well. God’s word is truth. The pastor’s sermon…is not.

2 Corinthians 4:1-2 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
