Hi, Boanerges. Happy Thursday to you!

I would respectfully submit that the question you ask doesn't get to the heart of what the Bible teaches. A simple answer would be, "No, we are required to give everything we have, but only after we've given our hearts to God."

Here's an outline of the "giving" section from a class I've been involved with on the larger subject of "stewardship."

Thanks, I think, there Ted however I don't see the answer to the question per se. Let's get some assumptions down right away.

If I say Christians lets assume I'm talking about bible believing individuals that have given their hearts to God.

If I say Tithe lets assume that I am talking about at the minimum 10% of the money/goods that a person has.

If I say mandated I mean required as a rule.

Now let's try this again, are Christians mandated to tithe?
