Emulating the Serpent

Why pastors are wrong to teach that God requires monetary tithes…

…because the doctrine of a monetary tithe requirement doctrine is on the same level as the serpent in the garden that asked the woman, “Yea, hath God said,…?”

God’s word is clear. His commanded tithe was to be
a) agricultural based, not money based. (Lev. 27:30,32; Deut. 12:17; 14:22-23,26)

b) required only of the twelve tribes of Israel. (Lev. 27:34; Psa. 147:19-20)

c) not to be observed outside of the land of Canaan/Israel. (Deut. 12:10-11)

Further, God said that

d) the congregation is not to take tithes to the House of God. (Num. 18:21-23; this is reaffirmed in Neh. 10:29,37-38)

e) only the tribe of Levi is commanded and authorized to take tithes to the House of God. (Num. 18:24-31; Neh 10:29,37-38)

Given the Scriptural proof of what God’s commanded tithe is; who was commanded to tithe; and where God’s commanded tithe was to be observed, it is clear that pastors that teach that God requires monetary tithes are emulating the serpent in the garden.

They call the word of God a lie and the God of the word a liar.
