Tithing is NOT Biblical

The Myth of New Testament Tithing I don’t think that most pastors are putting their flock under the unbiblical tithing  law on purpose. 

While some preachers may use the tithe and the false promises that they attach to it as a way to manipulate their congregations,  the vast majority of them simply do it out of ignorance... continue reading



Is Tithing Biblical? Sure, if you happen to be a  Jew who is still living under Old Testament law. But tithing is not biblical for Christians... continue reading

The Lie Of Tithing In Matthew 23 : 23 we have the only occasion in the New Testament where Our Lord Jesus tells anyone to pay tithes. Those who teach that Christians must pay tithes refer to this verse as the proof that Our Lord Jesus Christ established the continuance of the Mosaic Law of Tithing for His Church. These TITHE-TEACHERS are liars. The following facts will be established in this article. continue reading


The Unbiblical Christian Tithe The purpose of this hub is to demonstrate from scripture that the current received wisdom on the subject of tithing taught in many sections of the Church is in error. At best, these sections have a complete misunderstanding of the whole subject of the tithe, and at worst, the tithe doctrine is used as a method for extracting money from its members.... continue reading

Pastors Who Collects Tithes Are What ? Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for keeping part instead of the whole law. (Matthew 23:23). That is what tithe-collecting pastors do today.  If we insist that our congregation must pay tithes, we must also insist that they keep the rest of the law.  James says: “Whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.” (James 2:10).  Therefore, if we insist on tithing, we should also refrain from eating pork.  We should stone adulterers, execute homosexuals, kill Sabbath violators and restore blood-sacrifices.continue reading

Tithing : The Lie That Most Christians Believe  The lie that is more dangerous than evolution and the Da Vinci Code is the spell of the tithe. Why is it more dangerous ? Because it holds the church spell bound. The lie of the tithe remains a stronghold of Satan in many churches today. The seduction is in the promise: “God wants you to have the best things in life” (as Satan said to Adam in the garden). And so we hear, “Unless you give me your money, God will not hear your prayers,” or “God will not get involved with your life unless you tithe. continue reading

The Origin Of Tithing : Come, Let Us Reason Ministries  In the first part of this article on tithing it was established that Israel’s tithe was over 22%, and the people were to take care of the Levites. The Levites then tithed by bringing the 10% into the storehouse. This is the BIBLICAL Tithe.What we need to do is go back in history to see when the tithe was first established and required from the people, then we can determine if it is a practice for the Church today.continue reading

Tithing : Highway Robbery Of The 20th Century The Church conception of the tithe is totally unbiblical.  Just how much do people or their ministers know about God’s teachings on tithing? Let us look at what the Lord says about tithes. It was the ministers - the Levitic priests, that God blamed for defrauding Him, not the tithe payers themselves... continue reading

The tithe is Abolished. When you walk into a church today, a collection plate gets passed around that places a burden upon you to give money before hearing what the preacher has to say.  Churches have even told its congregation that it is a sin if you do not give them money (tithe). What you hear from modern pulpits is nothing more than what's called a sophist, which means "one who preaches ethics for payment."  The truth is, the tithe was for only the Jews, and even they do not practice it now since the temple was destroyed by the Romans in AD 70 continue reading 

Every single Pastor should watch this video !!! There is NO theological leg for you to stand on the issue of 10% tithing of your monthly salary - Not a single shred of evidence !
 











Not only do I have immense respect for Pastor Joseph Prince, but I have greatly benefited from some of his teachings as well. However, on the issue of tithing, based on the video above, it is evident that eisegesis instead of exegesis has been applied to interpret Scripture..  The word eisegesis is a theological term used to describe an approach to interpreting a passage in the Bible by "reading into" the passage a meaning that is not evident at all by the passage itself, or the context in which it appears in the Bible. Thus eisegesis is usually perceived as a negative term, and indicates that the person using the method of eisegesis is coming to the passage with a pre-conceived notion on a particular doctrinal matter, wishing to force the passage to fit a preconceived notion.

Tithing in the old covenant was ALWAYS in the form of FOOD & NEVER in the form of money. Tithes could not come from non-food items, Gentiles, or from outside Israel.
Abraham's 'tithe' was NOT from his earnings, but from SPOILS OF WAR, and was a one off incident. There is NO mention that Abraham gave a tenth of all that he owned, every month to an earthly representative of Yahweh God.


 Jacob made a condition to God : IF you will do this for me , THEN I will give thee a tenth of what I own. It was CONDITIONAL, and Malachi ? It was a REBUKE to the Levitical priests who had robbed God,and even then, it was about FOOD : .....that there may be MEAT in my STOREHOUSE " 

There is not a single sentence from ALL the  writers in the New Covenant instructing us to tithe because the writers were all Jews and they knew that the tithe ( in the form of food ) was only for the Jews. There is also much evidence here to prove this point in the form of articles, videos and books written by  people from all walks of life & diverse backgrounds, but especially from Russel Earl Kelly who addresses the points raised by Joseph Prince at this link : Rebuttal of Joseph Prince ( on Tithing ) by Russel Kelly, PHD


Should The Church Teach Tithing
A Theologian's Conclusions about a Taboo Doctrine

This 288 page book began as a PhD dissertation. It is an easy-to-read reference commentary which also contains many Greek and Hebrew word studies and an extensive bibliography. Every tithing text is covered, plus every possible extension of it in the New Testament.

The author demonstrates how the Church must replace this last taboo remnant of the Old Covenant Law and enter fully into much better New Covenant provisions for accomplishing God's work. No stone is left turned. A thorough historical survey of the first 300 years of church history and verse by verse studies of key chapters add compelling evidence. Read here

Why Christians Should Not Tithe

The premise is simple: God, having freed his people from the Law through faith in Jesus Christ, does not place on them a burden from the Law. The thesis is equally as simple: Christian giving is not a tithe. Christ challenges the believer to give himself and his possessions to the gospel cause, but the tithe fixes a limit and implies nothing more is needed.

This book is a thorough discussion of the four tithes in Moses' Law,  Jesus' comments on tithing, and the twenty-one principles of giving developed by the apostles in Acts and the epistles. Included is a brief review of the history of tithing from post-apostolic times to the present. The book concludes with a new paradigm for giving not based on the tithe, but on the apostles' doctrine of Christian giving. Should Christians tithe to support the gospel? Here is a study that will help every Christian discover the biblical answer for him or her self.

Tithing: Low-Realm, Obsolete & Defunct

This book is an in-depth analysis of tithing from the perspective of the New Covenant. It evaluates the scriptural references to tithing in their context: before the Law, during the Law, and after the Law. It exposes the faulty theology of tithing and explains why it hinders the body of Christ from entering the fullness of God’s provision and purpose. It also describes God’s plan for Spirit-led giving today.

This book goes far beyond the discussion of tithing and financial giving. Most importantly it lays the foundation for understanding the New Covenant paradigm of life in Christ as a son of God.
