Tithing
Jacobus Erasmus, 03 October 2018

Tithing is a hot topic. What do I mean by "tithing"? Let us work with the following definition:

Tithing is the act in which a person gives a tithe or ten percent (10%) of their financial (usually gross) income to their local church institution in a recurring fashion, such as monthly or weekly.

Now, many pastors strongly encourage their congregation to tithe. Some churches go so far as to deny membership to those who do not tithe! However, many scholars and Christians think that tithing is not a requirement for us Christians today. Thus, Christians are divided on this issue.

It is important to know what Scripture actually says about tithing. So, in the next few posts, I hope to evaluate every passage in the Bible that has been used in support of the notion of tithing.
