One of the biggest deceptions in the Church is when they obligate and pressure you to pay tithes in order to receive God’s blessings and to prevent you from being cursed. Tithing was part of the Old Covenant Law of Moses. Jewish farmers were obligated to give agricultural products once a year to the Levite priests (see Deuteronomy 14:22, Malachi 3:8-12).

Tithing was never about giving money, and never meant for New Testament believers to practice. Tithing is a universal scam, designed to steal money from gullible people by making them believe that God will bless them. In reality, the exact opposite is true: By keeping the law of tithing, they are actually going AGAINST God’s will!

Let us read carefully in the Word of God:

“Anyone who tries to please God by obeying the Law is under a curse.” Galatians‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭CEV

‬‬“But Christ rescued us from the Law’s curse, when He became a curse in our place. This is because the Scriptures say that anyone who is nailed to a tree is under a curse.” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭3:13‬ ‭CEV

‬‬The apostle Paul himself kept the Old Testament Law of Moses zealously before he met Jesus and his life changed. This same Paul is the one who teaches the Church under the New Covenant that, “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.” 2. Corinthians‬ ‭9:7-8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

When you are keeping the law of tithing; you are sinning against God. Therefore, you are under His curse! You need to repent and turn to God from this evil, legalistic behavior!

Jesus Christ does not obligate His followers to tithe 10% of their money income to the church!

As matter of fact, the Bible goes as far to say,

“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
