    Tithing: Conclusions & Reflections

    in Christianity

    Are You Free to Give?


     
    Here's a little test: If you are currently tithing, or making regular donations to a ministry, group or person, ask the Lord each time if that is the amount He wants you to give. Tell Him that unless you hear to the contrary, you will assume His answer is "Yes!" Then give Him an opportunity to speak. Remember, the goal here is not to give the "right" amount. The goal is to enjoy our relationship with the Lord, and to have the confidence that He makes Himself known.




    Gives Life! Not Meeting Standards!


    When the Lord started talking to me about this, how I was maintaining control over my finances by putting the "principle of tithing" above His personal instruction, He asked me to ask Him what He wanted to do every time I went into my wallet, not just about ministry-related matters, but purchases as well. I was amazed at how much He had to say!


    When considering a choice or action or even belief or doctrine, here are some of the questions I ask myself:


    Does it draw me closer to the Lord, or in some way drive me away from Him?


    Does it encourage me to be real and honest with the Lord and with others?


    Does it encourage me to rely on my own strength or ability or on the Lord's alone?


    Does it encourage me to rely on my faith or understanding or on the Lord's faithfulness and trustworthiness?


    Does it encourage me to be vulnerable to the Lord's dealings in my life, or does it impart the fear of consequences or of making a mistake?


    Does it encourage me to come closer to others, and be vulnerable with others?


    If this hurts my reputation, do I gain a closer relationship with Him?


    If it is not specifically addressed in the scriptures (after personal study, reflection and meditation), does it seem to contradict or line up with their intent?

  • Tithing: Consequences & Conclusions

    in Christianity

    Believers Not Learning How to Hear the Lord


    There is a stronghold of poverty in the church because of the mix of grace and law, that you are free to give as long as you have already fulfilled the law of tithing.


    Social Infrastructure Based on Money


    On a practical note, in Old Testament times, the tithes and offerings paid for government services, self-defense, disaster relief, roads, parties (festivals), and every need of society. Today, we pay taxes for these necessities.


    Not Giving God's Way is Contrary to Our New Nature


    There are at least four reasons the decision to tithe or not is a big issue. First, a lot of time, effort and manipulation is being used to get God's people to donate money, regardless of the need. Secondly, financially supporting something God isn't blessing can actually delay God's discipline in another's life, work or ministry. Third, not asking God what to do is ignoring His sovereignty in our lives. Fourth, deciding on our own is disobedience to the truth, and encouraging to the flesh.


    CONCLUSIONS


    Bereans (Acts 17:10-11)


    The Bereans were commended because they looked it up (in the Torah) for themselves, overcame the fear of man and their own traditions, and when they recognized the truth, they were willing to let go of their old ideas and act on what they were convinced of.


    Free to Give Only if Free Not to Give!


    We can't be free to give from the heart if it's a commandment and we must do it. It was for freedom we were set free.


    Are You Free to Give?


    Here's a little test: If you are currently tithing, or making regular donations to a ministry, group or person, ask the Lord each time if that is the amount He wants you to give. Then give Him an opportunity to speak.

    Tithing: CONSEQUENCES or Why Is This So Important?

    in Christianity

    CONSEQUENCES (Why Is This So Important?)


    Matter of Control


    How much, when and to whom we give of our resources, our time and our money, is often one of the ways we gain or maintain control. We try to control God, thinking that if we give we can get God to take care of us. We control others, thinking that if we give to a church, ministry or person, we should have some say in how the money is spent, or have a say in how they live their lives.


    Tithing also involves another area of control in the body; that of leadership over laity.


    Another way finances are used to control is the whole issue of tax-exempt status.


    Believers Not Learning How to Hear the Lord


    Believers are not being taught how to give, or to hear from the Lord for themselves! There is a stronghold of poverty in the church because of the mix of grace and law, that you are free to give as long as you have already fulfilled the law of tithing. But we study to show ourselves approved, not to get ourselves approved.


    Do we give to get, or do we give because we have already received?


    Social Infrastructure Based on Money


    In Old Testament times, the tithes and offerings paid for government services, self-defense, disaster relief, roads, parties (festivals), and every need of society. Today, we pay taxes for these necessities.


    Not Giving God's Way is Contrary to Our New Nature


    At least ask the Lord what He wants done. If you don't seem to get an answer, do what you think is best and go on to something else. He doesn't want this to become a distraction, either.
