Many pastors and leaders are chastising believers in regards to tithes and offering. They blatantly call believers out for not tithing or providing offering according to their standards. They try to use the passage from Malachi 3: 8 – 10 KJV: Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
However they overlook or outright avoid Leviticus 27. Many pastors and leaders are not teaching the history of the tithe, what the tithe represents or why the tithe was commanded by Yahweh to begin with. I found an interesting article written up by a fellow believer that I wanted to share. I want everyone to get an understanding on tithes and offerings, No one should feel condemned about tithes and offerings especially when it is not being taught correctly. Please do not think I am against tithes and offering, I just believe that tithes and offering should be conducted in the manner that Yahweh established and not by the teachings of man.
Mighty Warriors of Yahweh Kingdom Ministries did not write this article. We wanted to make sure all credit goes to the fellow believer that took the time to research and present the information. They did not leave a name on their work so we wanted to provide the link to their site so that you can read the full article. I have included the links for the three sections of the article as well.
