I have attended two churches in the past few years where either a pastor or a deacon will stand before the church and basically tell the congregation that great things will happen to them if they tithe, and bad things (including going to hell) will happen if they do not.
Now I am not a scholar, but I cannot find where in the Bible it tells one to tithe to the church, much less where it says you will go to hell for not doing so.
I am all for supporting the church monetarily, but I am not for deception and coercion being used to collect these funds, especially when the church in question may not be using the money wisely.
Any thoughts from you?

There are SEVERAL MANDATORY requirements to have ANY chance at all of staying out of Hell!
1; Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
2; Being absolutely perfect in behavior and righteous works.
3; Being part of a church.
5; Attending every single Mass that your church has, especially on the Sabbath day.
6; Evangelizing the Lord to others
7; Reading the Bible
8; Presenting yourself as a sacrifice to DEATH in the hands of your enemies.
9; Being an elder, pastor, or priest of the church.
10; Remaining permanently single, ordering all female persons to depart, living the life of a eunuch.
11; Earning NOTHING by the sweat of your brow.
13; Living in nonstop limbo, misery, and constant humility.
14; Confessing and repenting of your sins.
15; Having ZERO technology within your midst.
This life is but temporal. The Earth itself is also temporal. You are FORBIDDEN by Scripture to enjoy ANYTHING that is temporal!

I've got limbo and misery down to a science. Humility, not so much.

There are numerous bible verses concerning tithing. If you can't find them in your bible google it.

You really are wrong,if you believe with all your heart and soul that The Lord Jesus is the son of God and you accept him into your heart than you will enter into heaven. No man is perfect,good works does not get you into heaven,attending church does not get you into heaven....
