Obedience Pleases God…Not Disobedience

Argumet: “In the Bible, God commanded tithes, and He is pleased when we tithe.”

Rebuttal: “How is giving ten percent of one’s monetary income in response to the command to tithe agricultural crops pleasing God? Throughout the Bible, when one did not obey God God cursed him; God sent famine to their land; God sent locusts to attack what little did grow; God even killed some because of their disobedience.

Reckon He was real pleased, right?

An example of pleasing God would be eating a tithe annually in Jerusalem as He commanded. Another example would be giving your tithes to Levites, widows, orphans, and foreigners every third year as He commanded.

Don’t kid yourself. Acts of disobedience do not please God.
