Re: History of Tithes in the Church

When you do anything as unto the Lord. Visit the sick, buy someone groceries, give offerings that is an act precedented on faith. I am not suggesting that we give to receive, but we do it to follow his teaching. I am simply saying that God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Therefore, my reason for saying God honors faith. I was not making the statement exclusively about tithing, but about giving generally. Again, if you are thinking that I have an agenda, say so that way we can discuss. I don’t know what “all” tithe teachers have in mind when they say God honors faith. I just know I meant it in general.

Hebrews 11:6 is how I define faith. James says faith without works is dead. So by interpretation, when my faith in Jesus Christ is carried out, it will be rewarded.
