And Your Finances Will Follow…

Are You Cursed If You Don’t Tithe?

“Will a man rob God? Yet YOU have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.”

Well my goodness! I certainly don’t want to be guilty of “Robbing” the Creator!

There are those who are not religious and don’t tithe, and therefore may chose to sit this one out. But I do urge all to consider this material, because it shows how institutionalized ideologies can affect our way of life. Though we have all been told something all our lives, things are not always what they seem.

  1. Very well said. I had known about this subject for some time. It is sad that most believers don’t read for themselves and depend on misinterpretation of scriptures. Hopefully, more believers will realize the information in your article and practice the facts instead of the traditions of men.

  2. I sent this article to my small e-mail list before I even read it, because after reading “the 72 rule” and other of your oeuvre, I have confidence that what you’ll say will be informative as well as high in quality & integrity. It isn’t necessary for me to agree totally with a man to be able to just enjoy the privilege of his thoughts and how he arrived at them.I have been a student of Scripture for 41 years & 39 under the teaching of our late prophet, William Marrion Branham of Jeffersonville,IN & Tucson,AZ.(Just google his name and see how many violently disagree with him)!Worse even is giving to the likes of those mentioned by Paul:IICor11:20 and reproaching himself,too, later,chap12:13-18.GOD is in His Word!Heb13:8 Maranatha

    • Thanks Robert. I really appreciate that, and I hope you enjoyed the tithe article. I will have to check out William Branham and see what he and his opposition are talking about. Thanks for the added scriptures also! Now THAT…. is truth!

  4. Ok Luke 6:38 tells us to give and it will be given unto you; good measured, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. That sounds like not having enough room to recieve. (running over)So I guess you are going to say Jesus was talking about something else.

    For those of you all that beleive that the Old Testament does not apply to us today really need to pray that God gives you wisdom and revelation. How can we allow a child of Satan (those who has not confessed Christ as there Lord and saviour) to give us financial advice concerning the church.

    You have to understand that those people were an agraiain society they needed rain and also needed to their plants to grow. So that is where you get the analogy of farming.

    You say that there are a lot of people giving donations to churches, and that may be true, but why should or why would unsaved people who cannot perceive or receive the things of God finance the Kingdom of God?

    The writer of this article is like a theology teacher, all he know is history. He is not empowered by the Holy Spirit who reveals the mysteries and deep things of God. I am going to keep on tithing!!

  5. Larry,

    Let me address your post point by point.

    First, Luke 6:38 doesn’t have anything to do with telling people that they are “cursed” if they don’t tithe. If a preacher believes in this verse, then he should preach it. But telling a congregation that the Bible requires it’s members to give 10% of their money, or anything else (which it does not) is coercion.

    Second. No one said that the Old Testament does not apply to us today. My commentary was on the Mosaic Law. But since you believe in the Old Testament so strongly, then let us look at what it says.

    The Old Testament CLEARLY states (as I gave reference) that the nation consumed their own tithes! They SHARED their tithes with the priests. They only GAVE tithes in the THIRD year. This point stands, whether or not the society was agrarian (WHICH IS NOT EVEN TRUE) or not. So if you were going by the Old Testament (that you say applies to us), then you would share your tithe with the pastor/priest/preacher and would only GIVE your tithes in the third year.

    If YOU want to give it every year, that is YOUR choice, but the Bible didn’t REQUIRE it (show me where I’m wrong). It is not a preachers place to pick and choose “certain” scriptures in the Bible to teach. So once again, to tell someone they are cursed for not doing so is dishonest. A Child of Satan is dishonest. A Child of God exposes dishonesty.

    Third, I never said that unsaved people have to finance the church. Saved people can donate to a church, just as well as unsaved can. Also, if we look in the New Testament as I referenced in Acts… No one in the land lacked. Why? Because the people sold their possessions and divided the money up evenly amongst everyone. So therefore the people who were poor “received” money from those that had abundance. Is this the picture of the church today?

    It seems as if you went through my entire article, and picked out 2 or 3 points you wanted to rebuttal and left the rest.

    But with that being said, I am always open to learning. So if you are “empowered by the Holy Spirit” please shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    I asked the question “Are You Cursed If You Don’t Tithe?”

    It doesn’t say so in the scripture (that I can find). Can you or someone else, reveal this “mystery” and “deep thing” of God to us?

  6. Hi. My church is an independent church and does not receive any support from other groups or organisations or outside individuals. It stands by faith believing that as long as the Word of God is preached, it will stand by God’s grace. Tithes and offerings has sustained our church simply because it was taught to its members. Taught, not coerced.

    When tithing was preached, I was convicted to obey. Not only because of the curse or the blessing but more so because I love God. You can give without loving but you can not love without giving. How do then do we give? When we feel like giving only? God does not need our tithes and offerings because everything is His anyway. What He wants is our obedience to His words.

    Old testament or New, they are God’s words. I don’t come with scriptures and history, but my words come from the heart. And so far, my obedience has kept me to Him. I’ve finally returned! God bless you!
