    Look again, nowhere in any of Paul’s writings does Paul ever speak once of tithing. If tithing was such a big critical topic, surely the Apostle Paul would have mentioned it often. I believe that Paul understood giving very clearly and he never enjoined tithing on any Christians. Nowhere in John’s or Peter’s writing do we see any mention of tithing. I believe what Paul said is best… “Be generous and willing to share”.
    The modern problem is that church is now a building instead of a fellowship. People “go” to church today whereas in the first century the people were the church. Our modern, humanistic church culture is far, far different from the original grace filled church that did not own buildings, parking lots, fellowship halls, stained glass, highly paid full time pastors, padded pews, etc…
    If anyone simply took the time to read about the church in the book of Acts, they would see that they often met in homes, did not retain a full time preacher, did not tithe, and did not build cathedrals.
