TITHING for the Right Purpose

You can hate on the tithe all you want, but the fact remains that giving away 10% or more of your income to – 1. Connect people with their Creator and 2. Serve the poor & needy – is the absolute quickest and most effective way to transform YOUR OWN LIFE and transform your community for good.

Spiritual laws don’t change, they are supposed to get clearer as time moves on and God reveals them. Acting like they don’t exist is beyond dumb.

Spiritual laws work whether you understand them or not. They work whether you are hurt & wounded or not. They work whether you are emotional or not. They work whether you like them or not. Try to get an understanding of the Word of God instead of fighting against it.

Sometimes when ppl get duped into giving into a false ministry, they become against giving altogether. Then they become even more unfruitful and selfish. Even some unbelievers have enough sense not to stop giving to charity.

You can call it tithing, giving, honoring, or charity, or “firstfruiting”. Make up your own word if you want, it doesn’t matter, just do it.

Proverbs 3
9 Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

It’s so funny how people claim not to believe in tithing but they end up blowing money on the god they serve regardless. They’ll give to the god of materialism, sports, or intellectualism. The only difference is, when they tithe to the Casino and Alcohol and Music Industry gods… Families and Communities are destroyed. Excess contribution to intellectualism, sports, and materialism also helps destroy the nation.

Checks & Balances

Part of the reason tithing is good for us to “learn from” is because it makes you research what the tithe was used for. It was used to support the teachers, the singers & musicians, the poor, and the building. This puts the responsibility and accountability on the pastor to actually use the money right, because it’s not just a personal “gift” for him. This creates a system of checks and balances that ends up giving God all the glory instead of allowing people to commit idolatry according to what they choose to give to:

– People that think giving to God means giving to the preacher, usually treat the oratory-talented high performance hypocrite preacher as God.

– People that only contribute towards music usually view singing stars as gods, and they will follow the singers and musicians wherever they go, even if it’s straight to sporitual adultery and Babylon’s music industry.

– Rich people see themselves as god, so they skip the church and only give directly to the poor and charities.

– And materialistic covetous churches are always using and raising excessive portions of church money for a bigger building so they can get more people and more money.

But when you balance church finances out under the leadership of God, using His wisdom, God gets the glory, his gospel is preached, he is worshipped in purity, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
