Not once, in the entire Bible do we read that it is necessary for the saved in Christ Jesus to give ten percent of their money to God or to the church they attend.  Leviticus 27:30,32 reveals that God’s commanded tithe was to be agricultural crops, flocks, and herds.  Deuteronomy 12:10-11 reveal that God’s commanded tithe is not to be observed until crossing the river Jordan and entering the land of Canaan to live there as a citizen of that land. 

Therefore, we know that God never intended people all over the world to tithe. Only those people living in the land of Canaan were required by God to tithe.


Seek direction from God as to whether He wants you to tithe or not?  I did.  He doesn’t.
