I hear a familiar sound; the pump priming for collection time. Not a collection for the saints, but a collection from the saints. A spiel of the blessings one would receive as a result from paying your ministers to hear the Word of God. This commandment is called tithing. Tithing is leaving many confused and scratching for funds to avoid condemnation. I rarely notice joy at this time but rather the forced grin of obedience. The Pentecostal tithing teaching holds strong ties with the Old Covenant way of life. Materialistic gain being the proof of our favour with God. Does this hold true to New Covenant living? I am surprised that tithing is still accepted by many churches all over the world. It is regarded by some as an infallible biblical truth. This booklet sets out to quickly demonstrate the simplicity and complexity of tithing; From ancient customs and practices, the Mosaic Law and the successful attempt by many to introduce an unscriptural and summarised version into the church. This teaching of tithing finds no place in the New Covenant.
