Re: History of Tithes in the Church

How would you apply this verse?

Isa 65:4 NKJV - (4) Who sit among the graves, And spend the night in the tombs; Who eat swine's flesh, And the broth of abominable things is [in] their vessels;

You haven't read this threads in detail then. I have shown with historical facts and Bible, and others as well. The 1 Cor 9 is talking about is just an anchor he is holding to argue (or show off his...

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

So you are teaching it. With a soft stand, yes, as a "recommendation", or a "guideline", but still it is a gross misapplication of the OT texts, which is then a false teaching. You are persuading...

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

It is a false doctrine. Period. It has been exposed with Bible and with Historical Facts.

Some in this thread (which happen to be pastors who receive tithes) keep insisting it is OK to teach the...

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

I never said you can't tithe, but I did say teaching tithing of your all income as a Biblical doctrine, that it is God's will or perfect will, is an error. People are free to tithe voluntarily, but...

Hi Nicodemus :)

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

Sounds like prosperity doctrine, like the "evangelists" on TV, but instead on the pulpit.

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

That was not the context of your original words "God honors faith", but I won't argue that. They are your words, and you appear to be retracting them.



That verse is not in the context of...

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

You are generalizing again. The faith as "I'm seeing Jesus doing great miracles gracefully, and I recognize the authority in him to just doing them by saying the word", does not equates to the "God...

Exactly, they had faith in the Word of God giving a specific promise from Malachi 4:2. They believed Jesus was the Christ, therefore believed that Malachi 4:2 would be fulfilled in them if they...

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

When you say "God honors faith" in the sense of giving as you applied it to tithing and non tithing alike in your last response, what promises specifically are you referring to? I say promises just...

Re: History of Tithes in the Church

OK. I disagree, but it is not relevant to this discussion at this point.


Correct. We agree on that. Yet the context is the comparison with other apostles, not to "all ministry"
