Obedient?

So many today say they believe in tithing. They say that God commands man to tithe and man must be obedient. But are they truly obeying God’s tithe command?
For instance,

In Leviticus 27:30,32 God reveals that His tithe is to be agricultural. Are you obeying God and tithing agriculture? Or are you obeying man and tithing money instead?

In Numbers 18:21-23 God reveals that the tithe is to be give to the tribe of Levi because it is to be their inheritance. Are you obeying God and giving the tithe to the tribe of Levi? or are you obeying man and giving the tithe to a pastor that is not a Levite?

In Numbers 18:21-23 God reveals that the congregation is not to go near the House of God with their tithes. Are you obeying God and not going near the House of God with your tithes? Or are you obeying man and taking your tithes to the House of God?

In Deuteronomy 12:10-11 God said the congregation is to take their tithes to the place He chose to place His name. We discover in 2 Chronicles 6:5-6 that that place He chose to place His name is Jerusalem. Are you obeying God and taking your tithe to Jerusalem? Or are you obeying man and taking your tithe to a local church building instead?

The apostle James writes:

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

How many points are you guilty of? If you offend in just one point, you are guilty of all. Though you have given a tithe of your money to your local church, t is as if you have not tithed at all. God doesn’t see you as obedient in the tithe if you are not obeying all that He commanded.
