I was shocked to find the truth about tithing after many years of paying the tithe to local churches. We should all be challenged to study the scriptures, like good Bereans, for ourselves and not just allow ourselves to be spoonfed man made doctrines and traditions of men that are contrary to the Word of God.

Why would Jesus pay tithe to himself ?

Jesus gave his life.

If no tithe were paid we would have no churches. I believe that the Bible says we should come together to worship. Hence the need for a church.

The early church met in one another's homes. Any and all collections taken up were solely for the needs of the poor brethren, widows and orphans.

A careful study of the scriptures will reveal the facts, and the truth. This will amaze and enlighten you. God wants us to know the truth.

First of all, it may interest folks to know, the "tithe" was never about money in the first place.

Secondly, the "tithe" was from the LAW and we are no longer under the Law but grace. However, If we choose to go back under the law, we are obligated, as the Word says to fulfill ALL the Law, and no one can. Read Galations 3.

Partly because so many misguided or guilt-ridden souls hope they can buy their way into heaven.
