I will say after reading Preacher's ideas on tithing this .. you are certainly entitled to your opinion but cramming it down someone elses throat like that will not cause anyone to change their minds. In fact, its opinions like yours which cause many people today to be atheists, I think. Some would even claim they had rather go to hell than serve such an unfeeling God.
Not me personally .. I believe in God and I pray but I don't choose to be religious-y. And can even understand why some people choose not to believe at all. Live and let live. Pray for them but cramming and ridiculing will only cause more disbelief and possibly coldness. Just my opinion.
RIGHT ON! Cindy.

WARNING!!!! Tithing will lower your bank account and most likely increase the bank account of the worlds most largest land owner!!!(i.e. Catholic Church)

Here is another truth sure to crush you hard!

Your tithe is to be of your GROSS income!!! It is to be FIRST before taxes and such!

Many if not all of our jobs actually deduct our taxes before we get paid. That means many people only receive net pay, with money allready taken out for taxes before payment. That situation CAUSES you to become a perpetual ROBBER OF GOD!!! Every single pay check to you that has it's taxes allready taken out causes YOU to live in a perpetuating STATE of ROBBERY!!!

"If anyone wishes to come after me, let him DENY himself, Take up his CROSS, and follow me!" You are to carry your cross ALONE!!! Under ZERO circumstances at all WHATSOEVER is any person to EVER have help carrying his/her cross THE PROPER WAY!!! That ESPECIALLY includes having your taxes taken from your check before you are paid! YOU ALONE are to pay your OWN taxes, and AFTER your TITHE has been paid!

Selling wolf tickets again, I see. Take your church lies and shove them! Tithe is to give of what you have to others. Not the church.

Listen here, losers!

Choo Thomas was a preacher of God, and even SHE says that paying tithes out of your GROSS income is REQUIRED of you! You ask her, and even she would have told you point blank; any job that takes the taxes out of emplyees' paychecks before paying them CAUSES ALL of the employees to become perpetuating ROBBERS OF GOD, and to live in a continuous, perpetuating STATE of ROBBERY!!!

Anyone who wants even the SLIGHTEST chance of eternal life must CARRY his cross ALONE and WITHOUT HELP, and carry it THE PROPER WAY!!! No dragging, no wheels, ONLY your BARE HANDS and your ARMS and LEGS! YOU are to be the SOLE VEHICLE of your cross!

The real reason you keep seeing lawsuits about keeping religion out of politics:

The Church only wants 10%, the government wants 30% or more. The competition makes 'em look bad.
