The issue of “tithing” has crept into our daily conversations and have so become a hot topic emanating different views and arguments when brought up. For so long, I have withhold my pen from dancing to the tune of the now “controversial” aspect of the religion Christianity, but for how long will I keep my own “opinion” boiling in my stomach? After all, I’m entitled to my own opinion!
Now, I’m ready to share my own view and mind you I’m a Christian, so please my opinion matters. And I will also be disappointing you because I won’t be quoting any scriptures to back up my “thoughts”. I’m just an expressionist writer with a dignifying pen.
Back and forth, arguments have been made in an ignoramus way, ‘over-sabi manner’, fact-oriented basis and expression-ly by both believers and non-believers (we are all Christians anyways). But while talks fly around whether tithing is right or wrong, mandatory or not, form of extortion or not and so on, believe me when I say you are doomed if you care much about it over your salvation.
To me and based on biblical research, it is good to pay your tithe BUT you should not be forced into doing so. Yes, you should not be forced or condemned because of it. Something is much more cogent than “tithing” which is just a molecule of your entire Christian atomic life and that is your salvation.
Flee if your church or priest is much more concerned about your tithe than the salvation of your soul which is the ultimate goal of every Christian. Hearken not unto the voice of the non-believers who possesses no iota of God’s spirit and foolishly campaign against what you should be advised and encouraged to “doing”.
However, it amazes me that we still see the Holy Bible as a bunch of words put together. And that’s why most are confused about what they read because they read it with a canal mind even though the Holy Spirit is needed to help us understand it. So, if you are still not convinced by this short piece, research, pick the Holy Bible and seek the help of the Holy Spirit so you can have a better understanding.
But remember, no amount of tithe is more important than your true relationship with Jesus Christ. Again I say, flee if it is tithe over your salvation! May God help us all. Amen.
