Perceived Blessings

by Ronald W Robey

(written May 20, 2022)

You believe yourself to be blessed because of your giving monetary tithes. But I would encourage you to consider where your perceived “blessing” might be coming from.

Let me explain. The blessings God gives for obedience to obeying His commands can be found in Deuteronomy 28:1-13. But these blessings are predicated upon, not just the observance of tithing, but upon the observance of all 613 commands written in the Law of Moses.

If one offended in just one point of the Law but kept the other 612…he was guilty of all 613. And if he was guilty then the curses of Deuteronomy 28:14ff were to be expected, not blessings.

Now, I said in my first paragraph that I encourage you to consider where your perceived “blessings” might be coming from. And here is why…

Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

Matthew 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

Satan often offers rewards to those who will yield to his lies.

And the monetary tithe requirement doctrine is a lie because it contradicts what God said His commanded tithe is to be.

Is the Bible Lying to Us?

(or is the preacher the one that is lying?)

by Ronald W Robey

a) According to the Bible, Leviticus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17 Gods’ tithe is to be agriculture and agricultural food by-products. Is the Bible lying to us?

b) According to the Bible, Leviticus 27:34 the command to tithe was given to the children of Israel. Is the Bible lying to us?

c) According to the Bible, Psalms 147:19-20 the commands given to Israel were given to no other nation. Is the Bible lying to us?

d) According to the Bible, Deuteronomy 12:10-11 those who God commanded to tithe were to move to the land of Canaan to live there and the place God would choose to place His name would in Canaan would be the place God’s commanded tithe was to go. Is the Bible lying to us?

e) According to the Bible, Numbers 18:21 God gave the tithe required of the congregation to the Levites as their inheritance. Is the Bible lying to us?

f) According to the Bible, Numbers 18:21-23 the congregation was not to tithe to the House of God. (obviously if the tithe of the congregation was to be the inheritance of the Levite it could not be the property of the House of God) Is the Bible lying to us?

g) According to the Bible, Nehemiah 10:29,38 the tithe of the tithe is what is the property of the House of God, not the full tithe given by the congregation. Is the Bible lying to us?

h) According to the Bible, Numbers 18:21-23; Nehemiah 10:29,38 the Levite is the only one God authorized and commanded to tithe to the House of God. Is the Bible lying to us?

i) According to the Bible, Malachi 3:7 is calling for a return to God’s ordinances. (a-h above) Therefore, Malachi cannot be speaking to the congregation as the ordinances say that the congregation is not to go near the House of God with their tithes. He would not call for a return to God’s ordinances in verse 7 and then tell the congregation to transgress the ordinances in verse 10.

Likewise, Malachi cannot be speaking of monetary tithes, for he was calling for a return to God’s ordinances. And again, he would not call for a return to God’s ordinances in verse 7 and then tell people to transgress the ordinances in verse 10.

So Malachi is speaking of agricultural tithes. Specifically, the tithe of the agricultural tithes that the Levite received from the congregation.

j) According to the Bible, Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42 the scribes and Pharisees were tithing agricultural crops and Jesus said they ought to have been doing so. Is the Bible lyng?

k) According to the Bible, Hebrews 7:5-9 the Levites still had a command to take tithes, “according to the Law”, i.e agricultural tithes. Is the Bible lying?

There is not one verse inn the entire Bible where God commands anyone to take a tenth of their monetary income to the House of God. But many handle the word of God deceitfully. And through that deceit, they have made the word of God a lie and the God of the word a liar.

Defeated Doctrines

by Ronald Robey

(written May 07, 2022)

Many of the tithe doctrines that are taught in our modern church assemblies today can be easily proven to b e erroneous if those who claim to love God’s word would only pick up God’s word and read it for truth. For instance:

Leviticus 27:30,32; Deuteronomy 12:17 defeats the doctrine that God’s commanded tithe is to be monetary.

Leviticus 27:30-34 defeats the doctrine that the command to tithe was given to tithe was given to the saved in Christ.

Deuteronomy 12:10-11 defeats the doctrine that tithing is to be observed all over the world.

Numbers 18:21-23 defeats the doctrine that God requires the congregation to tithe to the House of God.

Malachi 1:1,6-14; 2:1 & 3:7 defeat the doctrine that Malachi is telling the saved in Christ to tithe to the House of God.

Matthew 23:23 defeats the doctrine that tithing is not a matter of the Law.

Sadly, many have been blinded by religious lies that they will not pick up their Bibles and search out these nuggets of truth.

I Am Not Guilty!

by Ronald W Robey

Why I am not guilty of “robbing God” when I don’t tithe…

1. God said His holy tithes were to be agricultural, not monetary (Lev. 27:30-33) I do not grow crops, nor do I breed livestock.

2. God said His holy tithes were to be given to widows, orphans, Levites and foreigners living in the land of Israel/Canaan (Deut. 14:22-29) I am not in the land of Israel, so it is impossible to give my tithes to those who are the only ones God said His tithes were to go to.

3. Tithing is to be observed only once one crosses the Jordan and enters Canaan. (Deut. 6:1-3; 12:10-11) I have never crossed the Jordan River, nor have I entered Canaan.

4. The ordinances God gave to Israel, He gave to no other nation. (Psalm 147:19-20)

5. Judaizers in AD 51 demanded that Gentile Believers be made to observe Israel’s ordinances of the Mosaic Law. (Acts 15:5) The Apostle Peter told them they were tempting God by demanding such. (Acts 15:10) The Apostle James said they were subverting the souls of Gentile Believers with their demands. (Acts 15:24) The Apostles and the Holy Ghost determined and decreed that the Gentile Believers were not to be required to keep the ordinances of the Mosaic Law. (Acts 15:28-29)

6. The Apostles sent a letter to the Gentile believers telling them they were not bound by the ordinances of the Mosaic Law, but that they had to observe four “necessary things”. Tithing was not one of those “necessary things”. (Acts 15:28-29)

7. In AD 59, the Apostle James reminded the Apostle Paul that the Gentile Believers were free from the Mosaic Law. (Acts 21:23-25)

8. In the last place in the Bible that tithes are commanded, the commanded tithes are still “according to the Law”; i.e., agricultural, and for the children of Israel. (Hebrews 7:5-8)

9. The tithe still belongs to the Levites, not to pastors living on Gentile soil. (Hebrews 7:5-8)

10. Remarkably absent from the pages of the word of God is any command or instruction for members of the New Testament Church to tithe their money to their local Church.

11. God never commanded a tithe of money in His Holy word. It is a doctrine of man-made construct.

Jesus said of the Pharisees, “In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men”

12. In the Bible,

a. tithes were never commanded for the New Testament Church,

b. tithes were never carried to the New Testament Church,

c. tithes were never collected in the New Testament Church,

d. tithes were never controlled by the New Testament Church.

In light of the Scriptural facts, I can say without a doubt that I am not “robbing God” if I fail to tithe my money to a building doing business as a ‘Church’. In light of the fact that God never authorized pastors to teach their congregations that He requires tithes of money, I can say without reserve that pastors are robbing their congregations of money through their monetary tithe requirement lie and through their handling of the word of God deceitfully.

Truth Be Told

by Ronald W Robey

(written March 27, 2022)

You cannot ignore the fact that God said His holy tithe is to come from agriculture and agricultural food by-products, (see Lev. 27:30,32; Deut. 12:17) and say that tithing is between you and God…

…you are leaving God out of the equation altogether.

You cannot ignore the fact that God said to move to the land of Canaan and then there will be a place to take your tithes, (see Deut. 12:10-11) and then say that tithing is between you and God…

…you are leaving God out of the equation altogether.

You cannot ignore the fact that God said only bloodline descendants of the biblical patriarch Levi are to tithe to the House of God, (see Num. 18:21-23; Neh. 10:38) and then say that tithing is between you and God…

…you are leaving God out of the equation altogether.

You cannot ignore the fact that God said that only the tithe of the tithe is to go to the House of God, (see Neh. 10:38) and then say tithing is between you and God…

…you are leaving God out of the equation altogether.

You say that tithing is between you and God, but truth be told God has no say-so in your tithing decision whatsoever. You say you are obeying God in the tithe, but truth be told you are not obedient in the tithe at all.

You are doing things YOUR way, not God’s.

Greener Pastures

by Ronald W Robey

(written March 02, 2022)

Funny how pastors used to preach, “You aren’t to send your tithes. You are to bring them as Malachi 3:10 says. Sending the tithes is not obeying God.”

Now their message is that you are to disregard the command to bring tithes in Malachi 3:10. “ You no longer have to bring the tithes. You can send them electronically.”

If tithes are required by God (they’re not) pastors now have you disobeying the verse that they used to preach that you were to obey. (of course, if you study what the Bible says concerning God’s commanded tithe you would come to realize that pastors have had you disobeying God all along)

In Malachi 3:10 God was telling the corrupt Priests of Israel to bring agricultural tithes that they had stolen from the Temple at Jerusalem back to the Temple. He was not saying that monetary tithes are to be brought to church buildings all over the world. So in order to obey the instruction written in the text of Malachi 3:10 you need to take agricultural tithes to the Temple in Jerusalem. (good luck finding that) Otherwise, you are not obeying God’s tithe instructions at all.

Pastors have been selling you their tithe lie for too long. Allow God to lead you to greener pastures.

Tithing by Definition

by Ronald W Robey

(written February 5, 2022)

The word “tithe” has two definitions; “tenth” and “tenth part”. We see both definitions employed in the texts of Leviticus 27:30,32.

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.

In Leviticus 27:30 we see the definition “tenth part” employed. The tithe was to be the tenth part of agricultural crops and their food by-products.

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.

In Leviticus 27:32 we see the defintion “tenth” employed. The tithe was to be the tenth animal in sequence to pass under the rod.

Not one verse in the entire Bible says that God required man to give Him 10% of his monetary gain. However, for the sake of an argument, if monetary tithes are required, then one could use either of the two definitions above to govern his tithing since there is no biblical instruction that says a tithe of one’s money must be regulated by one of those definitions; i.e he could

a) give the tenth part (10%) of his money as a tithe

b) count up to the tenth bill in his wallet and pull that particular bill as his tithe. So even if he had $901 in his wallet, if he counted the bills in numerical order and the tenth just happened to be the $1 bill, and he dropped it in the plate…

…he would have given a tithe.

Tithe on $199 would not be $10 unless the tenth in numerical sequence happened to be that $10 bill.

But since the Bible nowhere says that God requires man to give Him 10% of his monetary gain, the tenth bill in numerical sequence or the tenth part of all the bills added up would be man’s option, not God’s requirement.

God is not going to get offended at or curse one for not giving monetary tithes. He is not going to exclude them from His eternal Kingdom if they fail to give Him 10% of their money. He is not going to send someone to Hell because they fail to tithe their money.

Salvation rests solely on the work of Jesus, our belief on His name, and His finished work on the cross. If one is tithing in order to enter Heaven, he surely will end up in Hell. (if he fails to repent) For we cannot gain Salvation through any work other than belief in Christ.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

A “Better Not” Mindset

by Ronald W Robey

(written February 20, 2022)

When it comes to tithing, I don’t have an “I get to tithe” mindset. I have a “I’d better not tithe” mindset.

Jesus identified tithing as a matter of the Law.

Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Paul said those that are of the works of the Law are under the curse.

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

If I were to yield to a call for tithes in the local assembly I would inadvertently be saying, “Jesus, you are wrong. Tithing is not a matter of the Law” or, “Jesus, Paul was wrong. I am not under the curse by observing that matter of the Law.”

I refuse to place myself under the curse.

Some Pastors are Like IRS Scammers

(written January 24, 2019)


Some pastors are like IRS Scammers.

IRS Scammers will call you in hopes that you are clueless as to the IRS Tax laws. Some Pastors will preach to you in hopes that you are clueless as to God’s tithe laws.

IRS Scammers will tell you that you have a debt of back-taxes you must pay or they will freeze your bank account and assets.
Some Pastors will tell you that you have a debt of tithes you must pay or God will ruin your job, your home and your finances.

IRS Scammers get mad when you expose their back-taxes lie.
Some Pastors get mad when you expose their tithe lie.

IRS Scammers won’t give you a legit address where you can investigate whether you owe back-taxes or not.
Some Pastors won’t give you legit information so you can find out the truth about tithes.

IRS Scammers are not really collecting taxes for the IRS
Pastors are not really collecting tithes for God.

The IRS has not authorized the IRS Scammers to call you and demand money from you.
God has not authorized Pastors to demand ten percent of your money.

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.
