Christians are not required to Tithe
Christians are not required to tithe, but true followers will indeed give to others as a result of the Spirit of Christ that is within them.
It truly is better to give than it is to receive, but this can only be truly understood by those who have put on the mind of Christ.
Eph 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
The law of commandments contained in ordinances, does not pertain to the Elect of Christ, therefore Christians are not required to tithe.
This wall which divided the Old Testament believers of God, from all that would become the New Testament believers, was the law of commandments contained in ordinances.
Eph 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Christ abolished the Mosaic Law and ordinances, including tithing and sin offerings.
Heb 7:18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
Christians are not required to tithe, nor are they to make offerings for their sins.
Heb 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
Jesus paid the price for all of our sins, this includes those who were under the first testament covenant given to the Hebrews through Moses. Through Christ alone, those who were of the faith could also receive Christ’s promise of eternal life through Him.
Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
The true followers of Jesus are not under the Old Testament law of bondage, but the new law of liberty which is in Christ. The new covenant of Christ was established upon better promises (Heb 8:6).
2 Cor 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
This giving is out of love, and it does not necessarily relate to money. It is based on compassion as opposed to ordinances. More often than naught, sharing time, talents and knowledge with others is a much larger sacrifice.
Let us, therefore, give out of a pure heart. True Christians are not required to tithe, but they truly love to give unto others.
The law of Christ is not of a carnal commandment, but He is the means unto eternal life (Heb 7:16).
Eph 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
All who are in Christ Jesus are the true Israel of God (Gal 6:15-16).
Christians are not required to tithe, and any preacher that claims new covenant believers must pay ten percent of their income to a church is a deceiver.
Jesus did not tithe, and Christians are not required to tithe either.
The reasons why Christians are not required to tithe are quite obvious.
Tithing was a decree of the Mosaic Law, and this Law ended when Christ laid down his life for all of mankind.
Heb 7:27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
The new covenant of Christ cancelled out the old one given unto the Hebrews, therefore Christians are not required to tithe (Heb 7:18).
Heb 7:3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
Tithing was required under the Old Testament law, and Christians are under the New Law of Christ.
Christ is our High Priest, and the author of the everlasting covenant (Heb 3:1, 4:14, 8:1).
Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Christians are not required to tithe, and there is not a single command for the New Covenant Church to do so.
Deut 26:12 When you have made an end of tithing all the tithes of your increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within your gates, and be filled,
Tithing was based on God’s command to support the Levitical priests; Jesus Christ is our High Priest.
Christians are not required to tithe, and it is completely illogical to teach that this legalistic decree is still relevant today.
Unlike tithing which was compulsory, giving is purely a faithful response, and not of the law. The true believer that lives by faith, and is sealed with the Holy Spirit, truly enjoys helping others.
