There have been several good posts recently about tithing.
BeckyLynn wrote a post called “Old vs. New, Part III (II Corinthians 8 & 9)” for her church’s website.
Both of these authors conclude that Christians are not obligated to “pay their tithe” to their local church, but instead are to give generously to those who are in need.
This is a hot topic today, especially as more and more people question the modern church organizational system. Without the tithe, of course, the entire system falls apart.
