90-Day Scam

Many churches around the world are presenting to their congregations a “90-Day Tithe Challenge”. The “challenge” goes like this…

“Commit to tithing to this church for 90 days. If at the end of 90 days, you fell God has not blessed you, we will return your money that you gave as tithe in that period back to you.”

The fact that they offer a “refund” if you feel you have not been blessed should raise red flags and tell a person that the “90-Day Tithe Challenge” is a scam.

Where in the Bible did anyone offer a money-back-guarantee if a tither did not feel blessed? As a matter of fact, where in the Bible did God ever command man to give Him a tenth of his money?

The fact is, there is not one Bible verse that says the congregation is to tithe their money to the House of God. God even decreed in the Law that the congregation was not to tithe to the House of God…only the Levitic tribe in the land of Canaan was to tithe to the House of God.

Pastors have been handling the word of God deceitifully and preaching a tithe to their congregations that is totally foreign to the pages of God’s holy word. God isn’t demanding tithes from church members today…ravening wolves are.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

The word “ravening” in Matthew 7:15 is translated from the Greek, “harpax”. It means, “preying with rapacity”. Rapacity is the act of extortion. Pastors are extorting money from members of their congregations through lies such as “God requires you to tithe your employment wages/government benefits/household monetary income” and gimmicks such as the “90-Day Tithe Challenge”.

Challenge? I challenge pastors to stop teaching the monetary tithe requirement lie; (a doctrine that is totally foreign to the pages of the Bible) stop teaching gimmicks, such as the “90-Day Tithe Challenge”; and begin teaching the truth as it is written in the Bible.
