Have Some Respect, Will You?

We should not pay tithes our own way. If we are going to submit to God’s command to tithe, we should be tithing God’s way…not our own way.

So, going by the way that the Bible says God’s tithe should be paid, then we must

1. inherit land in the land of Canaan. Numbers 18:21-26
2. move into the land of Canaan to live there as a citizen of that land. Deuteronomy 12:10-11
3. tithe only from agricultural crops, flocks, and herds in the land of Canaan. Leviticus 27:30,32
4. give our tithe to bloodline descendants of the biblical patriarch Levi, to widows, to the fatherless, and to foreigners in the land of Canaan. Deuteronomy 14:27-29; 26:12
5. Eat a tithe in Jerusalem at the end of every harvest. Deuteronomy 14:22-26

God never said in His word that pastors living outside of the land of Canaan are to be His Authorized Tithe Collection Representatives. Nor did God say in His word that church buildings erected outside of the land of Canaan are to be His Authorized Tithe Collection Agencies.

If we are going to insist that the word of God commands a tithe, then we should have the decency and respect for the God of the word to tithe in the manner that He decreed His tithe is to be observed.

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
