Anger Impedes the Mind
by Ronald W Robey
(written January 18, 2022)

There is a Latin phrase that says, “Impedise Ira Animum, ne possit cernere verumTraslation: Anger impedes the mind from being able to perceive the truth.

The reason so many do not see the truth about God’s commanded tithe when it is presented to them is simply because they have allowed anger to impede their minds so much that they refuse to see the truth. The truth attacks their pastor and their mistaken belief…

…and they can not, and must not allow that to happen.

Their anger demonstrates a mind that is not of God, but a mind controlled by an evil heart. If they claim to be of Christ anger should not be controlling their minds, but a hunger for truth and a love for truth should be the controlling factors.

God’s word says that the command to tithe was given for the children of Israel. (Leviticus 27:30-34) When presented with this biblical truth you should reject the pastor’s doctrine that the command to tthe was given for the saved in Christ.

God’s word says that His commanded tithe was to be agriculture and agricultural food by-products. (Leviticus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17) When presented with this biblical truth you should reject the pastor’s doctrine that God’s commanded tithe is to be monetary.

God’s word says that the only people God commanded to tithe to the House of God is the tribe of Levi. (Numbers 18:21-24; Nehemiah 10:29,37-38) When presented with this biblical truth you should reject the pastor’s doctrine that Christians are to bring tithes to the House of God.

To reject the word of God is to reject God Himself. For if you will not listen to Him, you are not walking with Him.

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

Psalm 119:140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

Stop Tithing, Start Studying
by Ronald W Robey
(written January 17, 2022)

While there is an ordinance of tithing in the Bible, no one today is obeying the commands that are written in that ordinance. And because they are not, (though they may be attempting to obey the ordinance of tithing) they are guilty of not tithing at all. (see James 2:10)

This means that, though you may be sliding ten percent of your monetary income in that tithe envelope (thereby transgressing the ordinance that says God’s tithe is to be agricultural crops, flocks, and herds; Leviticus 27:30,32) and dropping it in the church collection plate (thereby transgressing the command that the congregation is not to go near the House of God with their tithes; Numbers 18:21-24; reaffirmed in Nehemiah 10:29,37-38)…

…you are doing so in vain.

God doesn’t recognize it as His tithe, for it is

a) not what God said His tithe is to consist of
b) not being given to whom God said tithes are to be given
c) not being given where God said His tithes are to be given

Maybe it’s time you stop attempting to tithe and start studying what God said concerning the observance of His tithe.

Study as if Ignorant
by Ronald W Robey
(written January 07, 2022)

The word “tithe” in relation to God’s commanded tithe appears only 14 times in 13 verses of the Bible. (Lev. 27:30,32; Num. 18:26; Deut. 12:17; Deut. 14:22,28; 2 Chr. 31:5; Neh. 10:38; Neh. 13:12; Matt. 23:23; Lk. 11:42)

The word “tithes” in relation to God’s commanded tithe appears only 23 times in 20 verses of the Bible. (Le 27:31; Nu 18:24,26,28; De 12:6,11; De 26:12; 2Ch 31:12; Ne 10:37,38; Ne 12:44; Ne 13:5; Am 4:4; Mal 3:8,10; Lu 18:12; Heb 7:5,6,8,9)

The word “tithes” in relation to a voluntary tithe appears only 1 time in 1 verse in the Bible. (Gen. 14:20)

The word “tithing” in relation to God’s commanded tithe appears only 2 times in 1 verse of the Bible. (Deut. 26:12)

The phrase “the tenth” in relation to God’s commanded tithe is found only 2 times in 2 verses of the Bible. (Lev. 27:32; Num. 18:21)

The phrase “the tenth” in relation to a voluntary tithe is found only 2 times in 2 verses in the Bible. (Gen. 28:22; Heb. 7:4)

The phrase “the tenth” in relation to a forced tithe by man is found only 2 times in 2 verses in the Bible. (1 Sam. 8:15,17)

The phrase “a tenth” in relation to a voluntary tithe is found only 1 time in 1 verse in the Bible. (Heb 7:2)

I encourage you to study all of the above verses in their proper context. I only ask that, as you go into your study of the verses, you as if you are ignorant of

a) what God’s commanded tithe is
b) who God said are required to tithe
c) to whom God said His tithe is to be given
d) where God said tithes are to be observed
e) when God said His tithe is to be given
f) why God’s tithe is to be given

Go into the study with the mindset of one that has never heard of tithing before.

Don’t go into the study with a preconceived belief that God requires you to give Him a tenth of your monetary income and to take that tenth to your local church building. For if you do, you will not be able to see or understand exactly what God’s word is saying concerning the observance of His holy tithe.

Studying the Bible with a preconceived mindset is not studying the Bible.

Rhema, Revelation, or Scripture?
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 26, 2019)

Rhema is a Greek word that simply means “an utterance”…more specifically, “word” or “words”.

A revelation is an appearing, or manifestation.

Scripture is a verse or collection of verses.

As we prepare to enter a new decade, I reflect back on the many discussions I have participated in on Social Media platforms on the topic of God’s commanded tithe. So many times I have read posts and/or comments that I should “Seek God for divine Rhema,” or “Seek the Holy Spirit for Revelation.”This begs the question…

…Why should I seek for “rhema” or “revelation,” when I have the Scripture right in front of me?

Neither God, nor His Holy Spirit, will speak a Rhema or give a revelation that contradicts what He has already spoken in Scripture. In 2 Timothy 3:16-17, the apostle Paul told the young evangelist Timothy,

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”

All Scripture, not some…is given for our learning, to convince and convict us, for correction, and for training us in the things of God. This means that any so-called “rhema” or alleged “revelation” that contradicts the written word of God is not rhema or revelation at all……it is deception.

Scripture is to teach us…not rhema. Not revelation…
Scripture is to convince and convict us…not rhema. Not revelation…
Scripture is to bring correction…not rhema. Not revelation…
Scripture is to train us in how to be in right standing with God…not rhema. Not revelation…

God has given us all of the rhema and revelation that He wants us to know in the Scriptures. The monetary tithe requirement, the doctrine that many are saying is “rhema” and “revelation,” contradicts what God said His tithe is to consist of in Scripture. Rhema, Revelation, or Scripture? It’s best to stick with Scripture.

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Argument: “If you do not tithe, you are disobeying God’s command to tithe.”

Rebuttal:
Leviticus 27:30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.
Leviticus 27:31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
Leviticus 27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.
Leviticus 27:33 He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.
Leviticus 27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

In Leviticus 27:30-34, God told the Israelites that the tithe of the land is His. However, when God said, “the tithe of the land,” He cannot have meant Earth’s entire land mass. For in Deuteronomy 12:10-11, we read:

Deuteronomy 12:10 But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety;
Deuteronomy 12:11 Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD:

In saying that the command to tithe was given “for the children of Israel,” (Lev. 27:34) and that the children of Israel were to first move to the land of Canaan before tithing, (Deut. 12:10-11) the Bible assures us that there is only ONE geographical location where God’s holy tithe is to be observed…

…the land of Canaan.

Given the fact that God said to cross the river Jordan and enter the land of Canaan to live as a citizen of that land before beginning to tithe, wouldn’t it be more biblically correct to say that the one who is attempting to tithe outside of the land of Canaan is the one that is guilty of disobeying God in the tithe, and not the one living outside of Canaan who is not tithing at all?

2° Off Course
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 12, 2021)

People don’t like me exposing their tithe lie. They want me to “switch lanes.” Even if I did switch lanes, they still wouldn’t be happy unless I was in their lane and going the same direction as they are…

…2° off course.

Try walking down the road, but not straight down the road. Angle yourself a couple degrees to the left or to the right and then begin walking a straight line. You’ll eventually be off the road completely and in someone else’s yard.
Now picture that same road as God’s path and the yard as the devil’s playground.

Then you will understand why I won’t play your “embrace the lie and go with the flow” game. As long as there are people walking 2° off course, there is a need for someone to remain on course and to point them in the right direction.

Malachi’s Tithe
by Ronald W Robey
(written December 01, 2021)

Wake up Saints!

Malachi is not calling for people to emulate Abraham in tithing, i.e go to war; kill wicked kings; gather any goods that the wicked kings may have stolen from other kingdoms; take the recovered goods to an open valley where kings meet; give a tenth of those recovered goods to the king of your choice, and give the remainder of the recovered goods back to their original kingdoms.

Nor is Malachi calling for people to observe the tithe preached in your local church assembly, i.e tithes of any monies you might earn through hard labor; tithes of any monies you might receive as a gift; tithes of any monies you might find on the ground; or tithes of any monies you might receive as a bonus from your place of employment.

Malachi 3:7 is calling for a return to God’s Ordinances.

Malachi 3:7 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?

Since Malachi is calling for a return to God’s Ordinances, the tithe required in Malachi 3:10 can be none other than the tithe that God requires in His ordinances. (to call for any other type of tithe than what is required in the ordinances of God would be transgressing the Ordinances, not returning to them. The tithes required in God’s ordinances are strictly agriculture.

Leviticus 27:30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.
Leviticus 27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.

Conclusion: It is nothing short of dishonesty for a pastor to use the text of Malachi 3:10 as “proof-text” for a monetary tithe requirement. Stop allowing your money to be extorted through the monetary tithe requirement lie.If you want to give to God, then give. But don’t believe the lie that, “You are not giving if you don’t first give the tithe.”

2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
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.

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:




Free Indeed
by Ronald W Robey
(written November 11, 2021)

Jesus Christ once said concerning those who are the servants of sin,, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (see John 8:34-36)

Jesus Christ also said in the same Book and Chapter, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32)

Notice that Jesus said, “MAKE you free,” and not, “set you free.” There is a difference. Allow me to explain the difference…

After professing faith in Christ in 1979 and joining myself to a local church body, I heard the doctrine preached and taught that God required me to give Him 10% of my money.

It was not until 1988 that I sat down and actually studied all the Scriptures on tithing in the Bible for myself, that I learned that God never commanded monetary tithes from anyone. His commanded tithe was to be agriculture and was only required of the children of Israel. (see Leviticus 27:30-34)

It was at that moment that I was made free…not set free…from the bondage that the monetary tithe requirement teaching pastor had me in. Had I just been set free, I might have been deceived by the crafty words of a teacher of the monetary tithe requirement lie and begun yielding to the lie all over again.

But since the biblical text MADE me free, I can never be tricked into believing the lie of the monetary tithe requirement ever again.

Romans 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

I believe the Son can make those who are servants to sin free indeed. I also believe that the Bible can make those who are servants of the monetary tithe requirement teaching pastor free indeed.

Your Pastor Owes You Money
by Ronald W Robey
(written October 03, 2021)

Why pastors that teach the monetary tithe requirement doctrine owe you all tithes back plus twenty percent more:

1. Levitucus 27:30-34 proves that God’s commanded tithe was to be agricultural, not monetary. So pastors lied to you about God requiring 10% of your money. This means that they took tithes of you unlawfully.

Leviticus 27:30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’S: it is holy unto the LORD.
Leviticus 27:31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth
part thereof.

Leviticus 27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.
Leviticus 27:33 He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.
Leviticus 27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

(the above passage also proves that the command to tithe was given to Israel to observe, not to the Christian church)

2. Leviticus 6:2-6 proves that pastors who deceived you into giving them monetary tithes owe you restitution of the money they extorted from you, plus twenty percent over and above the amount you were deceived into giving to them.
Leviticus 6:2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;
Leviticus 6:3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:
Leviticus 6:4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,
Leviticus 6:5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.
Leviticus 6:6 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest:

If they are going to live by the Law, (the tithe is the LORD’s) then they should be held accountable by the Law to return that which they have deceitfully gotten from you, i.e monetary tithes, plus twenty percent more.

Unwise and Dangerous
by Ronald W Robey
(written September 26, 2018)


The Epistle to the Hebrews says nothing of a monetary tithe. It only mentions

a) a tithe of war spoils; which included food, articles of clothing, and people.
b) a tithe of agricultural increase.

Nor does the Epistle to the Hebrews say anything about Pastors receiving tithes on behalf of God. It only mentions

a) Melchizedek receiving tithes
b) the Levites receiving tithes

Nor does the Epistle to the Hebrews speak of the saved in Christ giving tithes. It only mentions

a) Abraham giving tithes to Melchizedek
b) Brethren of the Levites giving tithes to the Levites

One has to add to the word of God to preach that the Book of Hebrews teaches that the saved in Christ are required to tithe their money to the religious institution they attend or are members of. A very unwise and dangerous doctrine.

Proverbs 30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

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.
