Wages are not Increase

A man’s paycheck from his place of employment is not his increase. It is monetary compensation for time worked at his place of employment. In other words, it is not an increase, but rather an exchange…

…money in exchange for work.

Therefore it is wrong for pastors to tell their congregations that God requires tithes from their employment checks. God’s commanded tithe was to be extracted from increase…not from wages.

Further, according to the Bible, the ONLY increase that God required tithes from was agricultural increase…and that ONLY from land inherited in the land of Canaan/Israel.

Leviticus 27:30,32
Deuteronomy 12:10-11,17

Let’s stay true to the word.
