Since tithing was a part of the Law of Moses under the legal economy of Israel.
It does not apply to the Church today, since we are under grace and not under the law (Romans ; 10:4).
The New Testament teaches proportional giving according to what we have, not what we don’t have (see 2 Cor. The New Testament also teaches that we are to (2 Corinthians 9:7). The Lord is more concerned with your heart attitude and your motivation for giving.
The Lord doesn’t want us to give under compulsion or under a belief that we have to. Second, I have never heard a tithe message where Malachi 3 wasn’t used.
If you continue reading in that chapter you will see that tithes were food products from the land of Israel which were to be used to compensate the Levites for serving God in the Tabernacle as a replacement for their lost land inheritance rights in Israel (see Numbers ).
Every mention of tithe there after, is a reference to that law.
I would simply like to point out the false teachings of the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination in this area and touch on some of the important points about tithing that show why it is wrong.
To my knowledge, there is not a single New Testament Bible text which teaches that New Testament Christians are supposed to continue tithing.
The Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination will also try and convince you that tithing was taught by Paul in 1 Corinthians .
