I daresay, not one person living outside of the land of Israel is obeying God in the tithe…not even those who are faithfully filling out a tithe envelope week after week.

How can I say this? Because the Bible reveals to me that they are not obeying Him.

1. God’s commanded tithe is to be agricultural crops, flocks, and herds. Le. 27:30-33. They give a counterfeit tithe…they give money.

2. God said His tithe is to not to be observed until you are a citizen of the land of Canaan. De. 12:10-11. They, of course, are in other parts of the world.

3. God said to give the tithe to bloodline descendants of Levi. Nu. 18:21-26. They give it to their pastor who is not a Levite.

4. God said the congregation is not to take tithes to the place of worship. Nu. 18:21-22; Ne. 10:29,37-38. They take their tithe to the place of worship

5. God said to go to Jerusalem each year and eat a tithe with your family. De. 14:22-26. They don’t take tithes to Jerusalem.

6. God said not to eat a tithe every third year, but to give it to widows, orphans, foreigners, and Levites that year. De. 14:27-29; 26:12-17 They give tithes to their place of worship instead.

It’s time for the church to stop being disobedient to God in the tithe…or stop tithing altogether.

When you attempt to obey God in the tithe, but do not tithe in the manner He decreed in His word, it is as if you have not tithed at all.

James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

When an honestly mistaken person is given the truth and rejects the truth, that person is

1. No longer mistaken
2. No longer honest.
