Solution To The Unending Tithe / Tithing Controversy

December 3rd, 2017 – Solution To The Unending Tithe / Tithing Controversy Via the Interpretation Of The Holy Ghost John 14:26; 16:13

By Pastor Dallas

The confusion the Tithe controversy poses is the unfortunate exposure of the Church, the Body of Christ.

The final solution to this is an intimate relationship with Christ, the Head of the Church. If we do, all these brouhaha would not arisen.

This is because someone would have wisely noted that the ultimate solution to the unending controversy is to seek the interpretation of the Tithe issue from the Holy Spirit, our ultimate guide, whom Christ told us will teach us all things (John 14:26) and guide us into all truths (John 16:13).

By so doing, the Holy Spirit will ultimately interpret and sort out the tithe confusion, and other myriad doctrinal issues bedeviling the Church of the Lord.

The pertinent question is: are the Church leaders who are exploiting the situation trying to hide under religious doctrines to continue the extortion by trying to crucify Daddy Freeze who boldly voiced out one of the unfortunate tragedies that has befallen Christendom?

In conclusion, spiritual problems and puzzles are supposed to be rightly dissected by giving them sane spiritual interpretations, solutions and approaches via the leading of the Holy Spirit.

May the peace of the Lord ultimately reign amongst His faithfuls.
My regards,
Pastor Dallas.

  1. ALL I KNOW is there is nowhere in the Holy Bible where it is written that paying of Tithe/offerings is compulsory. If there is, I stand corrected, then let any pastor come forward and prove it from the Scripture.

    I take a stroll…

  2. Well we might not be known to people but to the best of my knowledge, majority of the leader of the church leaders are still using veil of old testamental doctrine(s) to cover the faces of ‘devoted’ worshippers… in my view, the most important thing is that God wants everyone to have a personal relationship with Him first class then you will know what to do with whatever that He had given to you…concerning Freeze, leave him alone…God knows how to handle his own besides he had started to read bible to search for the back up scriptures but now what is next for him is to consult with Jesus through Holy Spirit…Let him read John 5:39…people like him search the scripture but don’t have relationship with the script writer…it is an avenue for him to be saved…one day, mercy will smile on him and he will become a ‘noble pastor’…in conclusion, Daddy G.O (Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye) is not paying tithe…if you know him go and ask…because God is not expecting tithe from you anymore, He is expecting 100% of you in service…now you can decide according to Luke 6:38, the choice is yours…but choose life!…Halleluyah!

    Indeed tithes& offering was instituted in the old testament but the comment of Christ shows that paying tithes&offering is not forbidden.
    1) Does Christ approved payment of tithes& offering?
    Open along with me to( Matthew 23:23:Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone).
    Here Christ rebuked the pharisees for placing tithes &offering above the weightier matters of the law(judgement,mercy& faith) which can be liking to placing tithes & offering above our Salvation. It can be inferred here that when a believer had received the grace of God to live a righteous life (saved), he/ she must not do away wt paying tithes&offering( … and not to leave the other “tithes &offering” undone ie unpaid Matthew23:23).
    In summary, ensure you are first saved(the weightier teaching of Christ (John3:3) then don’t forget to pay your tithes&offering.
    At the same time,the Lord Jesus commended the woman that offered all that she had unto God despite her poverty(Luke 21:1-4). She should had been rebuked rather, if Christ didn’t approve payment of tithes&offering. Being poor is not an excuse for not paying tithes &offering.
    2) Also, are we worthy to pay tithes&offering when we are not an Israelites and collect when we are not a Levite?. The answer is YES.
    We must understand that been Gentiles before now, we are all an adopted Israelites unto God. And through our faith in Christ we become an Israelite unto God as well, an adopted sons and daughters of Abraham(Galatians 3:7,8 &26).
    So why are some preachers saying, “since we are not an Israelite we are not expected to pay tithes and offering” & collect since we are not Levites.
    3) Where do I pay my tithes&offering?.
    From the beginning tithes&offering were been collected at the temple majorly for the Levite(consecrated full-time priest of God) to feed on.
    Coming to the book of Malachi (Malachi 3:10…). God demanded for tithes to be brought to his house( Church) that their may be meat(Food, resources,money…) in his house.
    This remains the practice in Jesus days(Matthew12:41-44). And in the apostles days(1Corinthians 16:1-2).
    Your tithes is just 10% out of 100%, you can however still help the poor with the remaining 90% with u but your tithes and any offering you are offering unto God must be paid directly to the church. All genuine Christians need not to be taught to help the poor, helping the poor should be a pastime.
    Finally, as regards blessing that follows tithes&offering, the payment is our responsibility unto God. Not a job via which we earn, ” just as no Pastor pay us for the time we spent in the church ” but on the long run God in his power and wisdom will make a way for our prosperity here and in eternity(Malach3:10-11).
    Tithes&offering is for the running of church activities, sponsor missionaries, for making necessary payment in the church also for helping the poor in a collective mode. If anyone is embezzling it, he should be preparing for God’s wrath. But as a believer u are oblique to pay . You would have had right not to pay if it is a human or church based ordinance. Since it is of God no one is exempted.
    And my question is; what will a genuine believer be doing in the church of a fake fraudulent pastors/prophet. The person must examine his/her own life. Thanks.

    • wrong… when Jesus made that statement the new covenant had not began. as he had not died. the old covenant was stillbin operation. but when Jesus died. the priest hood that collects the tithe was abolished

  4. It’s unfortunate that the issue of tithes has truly put the church in bad light and this shouldn’t for any reason have arisen if things were properly handled.
    The Truth is that the issue of tithes has only exposed our need to be students of the Bible more than anything else.
    Once in a while we need situations that will unsettle us from our comfort zones and naivity, and make us sit up as believers and as a church and truly reposition us to our rightful place.
    My pain is not that somebody has become unduly vocal, everyone is free to air his/her view and understanding, my pain is the way and manner the proponent for tithes have gone about handling the issue.
    (whatever is happening is a deliberate attack on the church not necessarily by whoever said it, but forces of darkness)
    If we have to address the issue of tithing (since we have chosen to unguardedly give the issue attention to the point of openly criticising ourselves), it will take more than sentiments and personality attacking to drive home a biblical truth.
    It will require a systematic biblical approach to end this mess.
    Tithe is not an advent of the 19th or 21st century Pastor or church, the issue of tithes dates back right from before the inception of the church in the books of Acts.
    Traditionally tithing has become an integral part of the church.
    To ask why Jesus or the disciples didn’t collect tithes is to misunderstand and misinterprete scriptures.
    Jesus couldn’t have collected tithes because Jesus came to meet an existing tradition and structure, and like He affirmed I didn’t come to destroy the law but to fulfil.

    And the disciples couldn’t have done any less because even though they were Jesus’ disciples, they still observed the law and it’s structures ( the church was not yet born). so rather than collect tithes, the paid tithes in the temple. And furthermore, you will observe when Jesus rebuked the Pharisees on tithes, it was because they prioritise tithes at the expense of justice, mercies & faith, and Christ had to tell them that inasmuch as tithes should be collected, Justice, mercy and faith shouldn’t be neglected. Matt 23:23
    And even after the church was born, the necessary structures run the church didn’t come into place overnight. Therefore even after the birth of the church, while practising there new found faith, still observed aspects of the law that was not contradictory to their faith (because there are aspect of the law that were essential to our faith). It just like after our independence from the British, Nigeria didn’t overnight become an independent state, until now there are aspect of what the British handed down we still practice because it is good. So it is with our faith.
    So in essence the new testament church in scriptures didn’t have a problem with tithes, because traditionally it was already part of what they had believed, embraced & practiced right from under the law.

    If you carefully read the new testament, you will observe that their new found faith came with other sets of challenges and not tithes.
    so the writers of the new testament in their writings as inspired by God, were addressing the peculiar issues the church were having. In essence something new has happened (the birth of a new church) and we are supposed to begin to do things differently, as believers and bofy of christ, how should we go about it… And if you read the scriptures carefully the letters of the writers of the new testament addressed those arising issues not in the life of a believer, but in the body of Christ in different places.

    The current church of Christ didn’t initiate tithes rather, the current 21st century church of Christ only grew to meet what has been in existence and practiced dating back ages. The only problem I see just as Jesus observed is our overemphasis on Tithes at the expense of other biblical truths…

    If there was a balance in our biblical preaching and application, some of the issues arising wouldn’t have arising.

    And may I say, if people stop paying tithes today it wouldn’t stop the growth of the church, neither would it stop an individual from going to heaven.

    The battle for the soul of the church didn’t start today and it wouldn’t end today until Christ comes.

  5. with everything in me i can tell you that paying of tithes is compulsory and a must for every Christian, any pastor, bishop or general overseer that said tithes paying is not compulsory is simply seeking mass pity, attention and cheering of fools, the old testament can not be removed from our bibles, even those who say tithing is old testament still uses exodus and genesis to preach.
    Every old testament scriptures that did not pass the Jesus test was changed by Jesus.
    1. killing of animals for sacrifice Jesus changed it.
    2. going to Jerusalem to pray, Jesus said time shall come when you neither go to Jerusalem to pray every where is a sanctified place to worship your God.
    3. marrying more than one wife, Jesus changed that too.
    4. not literally working on the sabbath day, Jesus changed that too.
    5. an eye for an eye blood for blood Jesus changed that too.
    6. and many of such doctrine or the so called old testament Jesus verbally spoke against it and his direct apostles then.

    But the matter of tithes was not condemned by Jesus, and mind you he never spoke against it not because it escaped his memory but because that order still remains VALID in the kingdom.

    1) Does Christ approved payment of tithes& offering?
    Open along with me to( Matthew 23:23:Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone).
    This means he was pointing to them that not Just about paying tithes but also fulfilling the other spiritual obligations to have a balanced Christian life, this also means that if they have been keeping the other Christian and godly principles without paying tithes Jesus will still rebuke them and ask them to pay tithes, oh yes! the scriptures can’t be broken, not for any man, you must fulfill all that is written for the bible says if you stumble in one like in tithes paying then you are guilty of All.
    Since no adjustment was made in reference to Malachi 3:10 either by Jesus or the apostles it simply means that that order and commandment still remains Valid, Operational and Lawful. and that portion made it even more scary when God said ye rob me of your tithes and offerings, this means God never said ye rob the levites of the tithes and offerings i asked you to be giving them, rather he said ye Rob Me! for God to bring himself into such a scene means that tithing is a serious BUSINESS AND NO BELIEVER SHOULD JOKE WITH IT. i don’t care the millions of people coming to your church or the miracles God is using you to do, TITHING IS A MANDATORY AND A LAW UNTIL JESUS SAYS OTHERWISE, AS LONG AS HE NEVER SPOKE AGAINST IT WHILE ON EARTH NEITHER DID HIS DISCIPLES DID, THEN MALACHI 3:10 REMAINS AS VALID AND LAWFUL TO EVERYONE WHO LOVES JESUS AND NEVER WANTS TO ROB HIM OR LET FOOD FINISH IN HIS HOUSE. I

  6. @MELBONE KEHINDE AND CHRIS, YOU GUYS ARE the best for anyone who wishes to know the truth. Even thieves find a thousand reasons to back up their base lifestyles. Hence I am little surprised that people could justify non-payment of tithes even from the scripture. Ask yourselves if God would admit those reasons if you happen to face Him. It is true that many “men of God” cash in on this to exploit the church, but that is no reason enough to make any true child of God to stop paying tithes altogether, just as the proliferation of fake pastors all over the world has not made him to stop attending church services.

    I SHALL STOP here, for I saw this write-up late, and I doubt if many would see it.
