. . . . the question was whether the tithe carries over as a commandment to be observed by Christians. I pointed out the hermeneutical problems with affirming that the tithe is an obligation for Christians. You have seemed to avoid that question all along, and focus on the fact that we are called to consider all that we have as Christ's. While that's true and important to keep in mind, it doesn't answer the basic question.

I take you, once again, to the words of our LORD Jesus . . .

"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21 ESV

"Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Luke 12:33-34
