And Ted, I must say once again that it is great you can quote the Bible, but that doesn't answer the question at hand. Neither of those passages refers to tithing. We are told not to store up earthly treasure, but rather to give to the needy and to store up heavenly treasure, but nothing is said about percentages of total income, nor is anything said about giving to the local congregation or the national denominational body. So, could you kindly indicate where you think Scripture indicates that the TITHE is obligatory upon Christians?


I tell you, this man went down to his house justified.
