The Bible never ever commanded New Testament believers to tithe 10% of their monetary income! As a matter of fact, there is no command or example in Scripture that has anything to do with tithing money! It is very hard for those who are tithers to admit they are wrong and have been fooled. Many are bound by guilt and fear of being cursed or punished if they don’t tithe! But, if they still insist on tithing, then they should do it the way the only 3 people or groups of people in the Bible have done it. All these people had money and some lots of it, and yet they did not tithe one cent of it! Let’s start with Abraham, who only tithed ONCE in his entire life. That one time, he did not tithe from his wealth or normal income, but of the spoils of war. (See Genesis 14:20) So, to try to insist that Abraham’s one time tithe on the spoils of war means that every Christian must give 10% of their regular income every month throughout their entire life is absolutely ridiculous. Next would be the Israelites living under the Old Testament law of Moses who had agricultural products and livestock. These were farmers and ranchers who had to bring the 10th portion of their crops and livestock ONCE A YEAR to the Levites as stated in Malachi 3:10 NLT: “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!” If Malachi 3:10 applies to the New Testament believers, then the entire Old Testament also applies to us, and so would the law system of blessing or cursing based on behavior rather than Christ’s work on the cross! Last, but not least, there were the Pharisees who were Old Testament Jews, living under the Old Testament laws, whom Jesus rebuked, saying: “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your MINT AND ANISE AND CUMMIN, but you ignore the more important aspects of the law—justice, mercy, and faith. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things. Blind guides! You strain your water so you won’t accidentally swallow a gnat, but you swallow a camel!” Matthew 23:23 NLT  You see, tithing was never about money and never meant for the church, the body of Christ! Under the New Covenant, the Bible gives clear instructions to the New Testament born-again believer on giving, when it says: “You must each decide in your heart how much to give.” 2. Corinthians 9:7 NLT and “On every Lord’s Day, each of you should put aside some amount of money in relation to what you have earned and save it for this offering.” 1. Corinthians 16:2 NLT  STOP TITHING!!! IT WAS NEVER MEANT FOR YOU, THE NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVER!!! It’s a false doctrine!
