The Backlash Against Tithing
I’ve heard through the grapevine that this news article was coming out in the Wall Street Journal, and have been long awaiting it. Finally here it is. You can visit the link here. This news article titled, “The Backlash Against Tithing” was written in the Wall Street Journal by Suzanne Sataline.
As i was reading the news article i have a mixed emotion. I am really glad that the awareness is getting spread about the truth of tithing, but at the same time, i felt like it didn’t speak a clear and concise message about why tithing is not right. It spoke about people’s feelings and personal situations that they have gone through because of the misuse of the tithe. People’s feelings and mistreatment are not great biblical support for truth. I’m not saying that they don’t speak the truth, they just aren’t stating solid, biblical fact about it.
The main benefit of that article is that it increased awareness. It’s still up to the those of us who know the details of the truth to share it. A majority of this website is dedicated to sharing the detailed truth of tithing. Probably the greatest tool that i can share on this website is a long list of top arguments used for tithing and my rebuttal to them. The link is here: Tithing arguments
It is in a bullet list, so i list the main argument first and then state the rebuttal with supporting verses.
The next biggest resource and link is available here: Top Questions to Ask Tithers. It is just a list of 12 questions that are excellent to stump those who believe in tithing. After presenting these questions the tither will more than likely tell you that you’re robbing God, a heretic, or a devil helper. They will think of anything to say back to you except solid biblical truths that can answer these questions.
P.S. I give credit to Dr. Russell Earl Kelly for pouring his time and energy into providing information that made it possible for the Wall Street Journal to publish this news article. You can see his work on his website http://www.tithing-russkelly.com/
