Cursed!

2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

God wants us to give because we love to give, not because it is dictated that we give by another party.

2 Corinthians 8:12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.

2 Corinthians 8:13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:

God does not want us to give to the point that we ourselves are in great need. Many a church member has gone without things they needed because of pastors telling them that, “Malachi 3:8-9 says you are robbing God if you do not tithe.” And, “Malachi 3:8-9 says that if you do not tithe, you are under a curse.”

If only people would learn to read…nay, study their Bibles, they would see that they cannot be cursed if they refuse to tithe.

Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Christ redeemed those that were under the Law from the curse of the Law. The ONLY way you can be cursed is if you place yourself back under the jurisdiction of the Law by attemptiing to observe any part of the Law.

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

To attempt to observe Gods’ tithe ordinance, but not to observe the commands written in that ordinance, brings a curse upon the one who is attempting to observe it.

Numbers 18:21-22 says that the congregatiion is not even to go near the House of God with their tithes. By the authority of Galatians 3:10, I can assure you that if you are a member of the congregation and are obeying every command concering tithes in the Bible except the command not to go near the House of God with your tithe…you are cursed.

Leviticus 27:30,32 says that the commanded tithe is to be agricultural. By the authority of Galatians 3:10, I can assure you that if you are a member of the congregation and are obeying every command concering tithes in the Bible but giving a tenth of your money instead of the commanded agricultural crops, flocks, and herds…you are cursed.

Deuteronomy 12:10-11 reveals that the congregation is to take their tithes to Jerusalem. Still another says that an Aaronic Priest, (a descendant of the biblical patriarch Aaron) is to be present at the time the congregation gives their tithes. If you are attempting to observe God’s tithe ordinance, but not observing every command given by God, by the authority of Galatians 3:10, I can assure you you are cursed.

Pastors have church members placing themselves under a curse, and the church members don’t even realize it.

The apostle James takes it even further.

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

If you offend in just one point of the Law, (we already know that there are people who place themselve under the Law by attempting to observe Gods’ tithe ordinance) and you do not obey all the commands written in the Law, (we already know that those who attempt to observe Gods’ tithe ordinance are not obeying any of the commands written in that ordinance) you are guilty of the whole Law. Your tithng is not recognized as an obedient act by God. You have actually disobeyed Him.
