Tithe and Offering

Download Notes

That means for the support of evangelical work among men should be contributed from love to God and love of souls,
(Deuteronomy 25:4; 1 Corinthians 9:9; 1 Timothy 5:18; 1 Corinthians 9:3-14)

not raised by church lotteries, or occasions designed to contribute to the fun-loving, appetiteindulging propensities of the sinner, such as fairs, festivals, oyster suppers, tea, broom, donkey, and crazy socials, etc., which are a disgrace to the professed church of Christ;
(2 Timothy 3:4-5)

that the proportion of one’s income required in former dispensation can be no less under the gospel;
(Matthew 23:23; 1 Corinthians 9:13-14; 1 Timothy 5:17)

that it is the same as Abraham (whose children we are, if we are Christ’s, Gal. 3:29) paid to Melchisedec (type of Christ) when he gave him a tenth of all (Heb. 7:1-4); the tithe is the Lord’s (Lev. 27:30); and this tenth of one’s income is also to be supplemented by offerings from those who are able, for the support of the gospel. 2 Cor. 9:6; Mal. 3:8, 10.
(Malachi 3:8-10; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15)
