No, God doesn't ask for 10%. Churches do.
"Does God still require 10% of your money today?(remember tithing was not money, in fact it rarely was). The word “tithe” is used 13 times in the Bible. Not once do you see the word “money” used with it. The word “tithes” is used 21 times in the Bible. The word “money” is not mentioned. It has become this because of our system we use today, but this was not strictly so for Israel."
"I know the word "tithe" has "tenth" built into it, and so some Christians assume that every usage of the word "tithe" in Scripture is referring to "giving 10% of your gross income to the church." But I also know that "tithes" in the Old Testament did not refer to this at all;
They only "tithed" on food (livestock and crops); they had money (i.e. "income"), but the "tithes" did not apply to that
The food went to the Levites, Priests, and needy people - none of whom had land of their own by which they could feed themselves
"Tithes" were not required of everyone - only those who raised livestock or grew crops. For example, carpenters weren't required to tithe, nor were the Priests and needy people
Clearly these things have application today; I am not challenging the idea of providing for ministers and needy people with cheerfulness and generosity."
If God only asks for 10% of our income, why does Obama think he can demand 40%?
I showed you the post I was referring to.
I dont know what the rest of that has to do with me.
