Pastor and author well known for best selling books – Adventuring Through the Bible & Authentic Christianity
Never once in the epistles do you ever read of Christians being asked to tithe. A lot of Christians today are taught to tithe, but I am always sorry to hear that, because that is not New Testament teaching. The tithe was a tax levied upon people for the purpose of supporting a priesthood, a separate body of people who did religious things.
