Tithing Comment #7

Posted: June 7, 2010 in Commentary, Tithing

A teacher or fellow believer who believes that God commands the performance of tithing has no possible leave to say something like “if you don’t want to tithe, don’t.” He may be a Pharasaical jackass* to start with about this by even uttering this (or he may not be .. there are people who don’t want to either tithe or give) – the point is that such a man is either B.S.ing you about God commanding you to tithe or B.S.ing you about his authority to grant dispensation. He has a consistency problem.

*Because it is essentially an accusation against a man’s character. To categorize people with questions about tithing as categorically people with character faults (i.e. not wanting to tithe) is categorically sinful.
