“Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and unto God that which is God’s .” Matthew 12:21

The above statement made by Jesus to the scribes and Pharisees is often taken out of its context and used by pastors and laymen alike, in an attempt to prove that God requires tithe of money from the Church member today.
But, when read in context with the entir...

tithe, adultery, conflict
Suppose you are a young adult male who works for a company that has a CEO and a superintendent over you.
One day, the CEO tells you that you are no longer to come to work on Tuesdays; that only females are allowed to work that day.
Later that day, the superintendent calls you into his office and tells you you are expected to work for four hours every Tu...


Slipping Due To Hearing Problems

Tithes
Slipping Due To Hearing Problems Three elderly gentlemen are sitting on a park bench.

#1: It's windy today.
#2: No, today is Thursday.
#3: So am I. Let's go get a drink from that fountain.
#1: I don't want to sing on the mountain.
#2: What did you say was sinful sounding?

The three men in the illustration enjoyed each others company that windy day. Yet because they were not listening...


Pay It Forward

1 Corinthians 16, tithes and 1 more...
Many today, in their zeal to defend the doctrine of a monetary tithe requirement, will cite 1 Corinthians 16:2, saying that the word “prospered” is speaking of “proportion,” or “percentage.” It is not.

1 Corinthians 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I...

Proper Teaching From Malachi 3:7-11 The Proper Teaching of Malachi 3:7-11

The proper teaching from Malachi 3:7-11 should be that tithing was an ordinance given to national Israel, not to the Church.

The proper teaching from Malachi 3:7-11 should be that Malachi was referring to a tithe of crops and livestock... not money.

The proper teaching from Malachi 3:7-11 should be that the curse a...


Jonah 4

Posted by irishman, 23 October 2013 - - - - - - · 74 views

“And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.” (v. 2)

This seems to be the reason that Jonah did not want to go in the...


Jonah 3

Posted by irishman, 21 October 2013 - - - - - - · 77 views

So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. (v. 5)

Jonah was sent with a particular message to a particular people. One must be careful to always speak that which the Lord gives them, nothing less, and nothing more. Remember, it was the Word that Jonah prea...


Jonah 2

Posted by irishman, 18 October 2013 - - - - - - · 60 views

“When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple.” (2:7)

Too often it takes tragedy in our lives before we will “remember the Lord” and call upon Him in prayer. Nonetheless, God hears the prayer of the desperate. Jonah said he prayed “out of the belly of hell” and God heard Him, He will...


Jonah And The Whale

Jonah 1

“Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.” (v. 17)

It looks as if Jonah had a “whale” of a problem! First let us clear the air about something; Men say that a whale’s throat is not big enough to swallow a man, but my God is big enough to make it happen!...


God Robbers

Posted by Standing Firm In Christ, 25 September 2013 - * * * * * · 174 views

Something to think about…

Pastors who use Malachi 3:8-10 want to make you feel like a “God robber” because you fail to tithe your money to the Church you attend.

When they preach on Abram, do they tell you he was a “God robber” too? If not, perhaps they should.

After all, Abram tithed the spoils of war to Melchizedek (Genesis 14:20) but did not tithe h...
