So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law. For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law, you have been cut off from Christ! You have fallen away from God’s grace.” Galatians 5:1, 4 NLT  What is important, is that we place our faith in Christ Jesus that expresses itself in love for Him! (See Galatians 5:6) If Jesus Christ has set us free from the bondage of being under the law of Moses, why are so many Christians keeping a fabricated law of tithing 10% of their income to the church and thinking they are going to be blessed by doing so, when it clearly says in the Word of God that when we keep the law we are cut off from Jesus Christ and have fallen away from God’s grace? It is no wonder that so many Christians are seriously struggling financially and in other areas of their lives despite tithing faithfully to their churches. They do not experience any window of heaven being opened with blessings being poured out on them. It is interesting to see that the so-called big time pastors, who are teaching this false doctrine of tithing, are the ones who are benefitting from you tithing money to them. They get away with living lavishly and buying anything they want. Since they do not trust God for taking care of them and their ministry, they are banking on the secure tithe income coming from you. That is why they have every reason to keep this deceptive tithing message going, as they falsely promise those who tithe to them that God will abundantly bless them financially. They absolutely hate it when anyone speaks against it. Many of these pastors are crafty businessmen, who, instead of taking good care of the flock and feeding them, are busy buying and selling properties and merchandizing and selling the Word of God for profit. It is not these false teachers, who gladly wants to tell you how much you should give to them, but it is the Bible that truly teaches us how to give our money and be blessed, when it says: “You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” 2. Corinthians 9:7-9 NLT  “Give in proportion to what you have. Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have. Of course, I don’t mean your giving should make life easy for others and hard for yourselves. I only mean that there should be some equality. Right now you have plenty and can help those who are in need. Later, they will have plenty and can share with you when you need it. In this way, things will be equal.” 2. Corinthians 8:11-14 NLT
