Submit to the SchoolMaster? No Thanks!
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 31, 2020)


Galatians 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
Galatians 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

The Law was the SchoolMaster of the Israeli people. Tithing was one of the demands of the Law that the Israeli’s were compelled to observe. But once an Israeli came to faith in Christ Jesus, the SchoolMaster could no longer demand that he tithe.

This begs the question…

Why would saved Gentiles be required to observe that demand of the Law that the saved Israeli is not required to observe?

Submit to the SchoolMaster? No thanks! Since the saved Israeli is not under the Schoolmaster, then neither is the saved Gentile.

Christianity is not a “Burger King Religion”
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 30, 2020)

Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Christianity is not a “Burger King Religion” where people can have it their way. If we don’t agree with the word of God, we are not walking with God at all.

1 John 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

The word “keepeth” in 1 John 2:5 is translated from the Greek “tēréō“. It means “to guard“. Christians are to guard God’s word from those who twist it into a lie. And this is exactly why I, as a Christian, speak out against the monetary tithe requirement lie.

You may not care that your pastors are twisting God’s word; you may not care that your pastors are handling the word of God deceitfully; you may not care that your pastor is extorting money through the monetary tithe requirement lie…

…but I do. And here’s why…

2 Corinthians 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 Corinthians 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

Tithing, as Practiced Today, is UnScriptural
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 27, 2020)

Why tithing, as presently practiced in many relgious institutions around the world today, is unScriptural…

1. The ONLY tithe commanded by God in the Bible is an agricultural tithe. God never said that money is to be tithed.

2. The ONLY people God commanded to tithe in the Bible were the twelve tribes of Israel. God never commanded people of other nations to tithe.

3. The ONLY people God commanded to tithe to the House of God in the Bible was the Levitic tribe. God never said Christians are required to tithe to the House of God.

4. The ONLY geographical location in the Bible that God said His commanded tithe is to be observed is in the land of Canaan. God never said that His commanded tithe is to be observed in countries all over the world.

5. Malachi 3:10 is not speaking of man-made Houses of worship all over the world. It is speaking of the Temple in Jerusalem.

Either Get Rid of the Bible or Fire the Pastor
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 10, 2020)

So many pastors in the world today have handled the word of God deceitfully in the matter of God’s commanded tithe.

1. The Bible says God’s tithe is to be agriculture and agricultural food by-products. (Leviticus 27:30,32; Nehemiah 13:5) Pastors say God’s tithe is to be money.

2. The Bible says that the only people God commanded to tithe were the twelve tribes of Israel. (Leviticus 27:30-34; Nehemiah 10:37-38; Psalms 147:19-20) Pastors say the saved in Christ are required to tithe.

3. The Bible says the congregation (eleven of the twelve tribes of Israel) is to take their tithes to Jerusalem. (Deuteronomy 12:10-11; 2 Chronicles 6:5-6) Pastors say tithes are to be brought to the local church.

4. The Bible says the congregation is forbidden by God to go near the House of God with their tithes. (Numbers 18:21-22; Nehemiah 10:37-38) Pastors say the congregation is commanded by God to bring their tithes to the House of God.

5. The Bible says the tithe of the congregation is to be given to the Levitic tribe because it is the inheritance of the Levitic tribe. (Numbers 18:21-26) Pastors say not to give your tithe to anyone but to the local church.

6. The Bible says the only people required by God to tithe to the House of God is the Levitic tribe. (Nehemiah 10:37-38) Pastors say the saved in Christ are required to tithe to the House of God.

7. The Bible says that Malachi was instructiing the Priests of Israel. (Malachi 1:1,6-14;2:1) Pastors say Malachi is instructing the saved in Christ.

Either the Bible is wrong, or the pastors are. Which is it? If the Bible is wrong, we need to get rid of our Bibles so people are not deceived. If the pastors are wrong, then we need to fire our pastors and appoint leaders who will be honest with the word of God.

2 Corinthians 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 Corinthians 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

The Monetary Tithe Requirement Doctrine: The Enemy of Holiness
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 08, 2020)

1 Thessalonians 4:7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

It is impossible for a pastor that is walking in holiness to teach the monetary tithe requirment doctrine.
Once he begins to teach the monetary tithe requirement doctrine, he has departed from holiness and is walking a dark path of destruction.

It is nothing short of deception for a church fellowship to have the word “Holiness” in their name if their leadership teaches the monetary tithe requirement doctrine and the congregation walks according to that doctrine.

The monetary tithe requirement doctrine being taught in many so-called “Holiness” church pulpits today contradicts

a) what the Bible says God’s commanded tithe is (agriculture and agricultural food by-products; see Leviticus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17; 14:22-23,26; 2 Chronicles 31:6; Nehemiah 10:37; 12:44; 13:5,12; Malachi 3:10; Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42)

b) who the Bible says God commanded to tithe (Israelites; see Leviticus 27:30-34; Numbers 18:21-26; Nehemiah 10:29,37-38)

c) to whom the Bible says that God’s commanded tithe is to be given (the Levitic tribe; women who have lost their husbands to death; children who have lost their fathers to death; and foreigners visiting the city; see Numbers 18:21; Deuteronomy 14:27-29; 26:12-17)

d) the land in which the Bible says God’s commanded tithe is to be observed (Canaan; see Deuteronomy 12:10-11)

e) where the Bible says God’s commanded tithe is to be taken (Jerusalem; see Deuteronomy 12:10-11; 2 Chronicles 6:5-6)

The monetary tithe requirement doctrine is therefore a lie and should have no part in the life of a person who truly aspires to walk in holiness.

God’s Four Required Tithes
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 01, 2020)

There were four tithes required by God in the Bible:

1. The tithe that God required the congregation give to the Levitic tribe.
note: the congregation was not to take their tithes to the House of God, but to the Levitic tribe. The tithe required by the congregation was the inheritance of the Levitic tribe, not the property of the House of God.

2. The tithe that God required the congregation to eat in Jerusalem.

3. The tithe that God required the congregation to give to the Levitic tribe; to women whose husbands had died; to children whose father had died; and to foreigners visiting the cities in Canaan.

4. The tithe of the tithe that God required of the Levitic tribe. The Levitic trbe was the only tribe in all of Israel that God commanded to take tithes to the House of God.

note: the tithes mentioned in #2&3 above are the same tithe, only observed differently. The third year, the one who normally ate this tithe with his household was not to eat the tithe, but to give the tithe to those mentioned in #3 above.

References for tithe #1:Numbers 18:21-31; Nehemiah 10:29,37-38

Reference for tithe #2:Deuteronomy 14:22-26

References for tithe #3:Deuteronomy 14:28-29Deuteronomy 26:12-17

Reference for #4 above:Nehemiah 10:29,37-38
note: Malachi’s call to bring the tithes to the storehouse is speaking of the tithe referred to in #4 above
