One of the reasons, I write these tithing blogs is to make sure people have information to fight against the monetary deception. For the Bible says in Hosea 4:6: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.” To reject knowledge about God’s authentic, authorized biblical agricultural and herd and flock tithe can lead to financial ruin. The Law of God declares the tithe as edible items but today most of God’s people have forgotten the law of their God and changed His tithe into a money collection system that has produced a grotesque financial aristocracy in the leadership of the institutional church.
Many pastors argue that how are they suppose to pay the church bills if people don’t tithe. Many of them are taught in seminary what the true tithe is, but are cautioned not to teach what the Bible actually says because they my go bankrupt if the people don’t give. So pastors think they only have two options in order to survive: one, they much teach people will be cursed if they don’t tithe ten percent of the annual income or two, trust God in faith to provide the money from voluntary gifts given from the heart as the Bible in instructs in 2 Cor. 9:7 that “each should give according to what he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly, or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (CJB). Now, Paul’s statement makes it clear that every individual must decide how much to give, which makes it illegal to say that a tenth of someone’s income is required by Yahweh. No pastor or church is authorized to use the Old Testament tithe law in the New Convenant.
When Paul wrote Hebrews 7:18, it reads: “For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment…” The question to ask is what is the former commandment that Paul sets aside and annuals. Based on strict exegesis from Hebrews 7:5 which reads: ” And indeed those who are of the sons of Levi, who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham; …” the commandment Paul refers to setting aside is Hebrews 7:5 because he refers to no other commandment in the chapter or any surrounding chapters. So as it stands, the “disannulling of the commandment” is no other than Paul setting aside the Levite’s tithe commandment for the institutional church and the believer. So why did Paul disannull the tithe command? The next verse in Hebrews chapter 7, verse 19 says why tithing is set aside in the New Testament: “for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.” The new hope in Christ is that we give from the heart as we purpose in our hearts. Just as Christ gave his life freely, we give freely as he did without compulsion or grudgingly as cheerful freewill grace givers. Paul rejected tithing because he understood that Christ came from another priesthood and considered Levi’s priesthood as one that was made after a carnal command.
Based on the law, and in Hebrews chapter 7 verse 5, the Bible says that Levi had the commandment to collect and receive tithes. If you look in Numbers 18:26, reads “Speak thus to the Levites, and say to them: ‘When you take from the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them as your inheritance, then you shall offer up a heave offering of it to the LORD, a tenth of the tithe.” From this verse, it is clear that the Levites had to pay a tithe of the tithe. In other words a tenth of the tenth. Mathematically that is one percent. So that means the High Priest Aaron and his son received on one percent of the tithe. The chapter also says that Levi paid tithes in Abraham when Abraham tithe to Melchizedek (Heb. 7:9). What Paul indicates in this chapter is that Abraham’s one-time tithe was for Levi (the future priesthood of Israel), and not a tithe for Abram himself.
The Bible debunks money tithing because tithing is commanded in the scripture from agricultural increase in Leviticus 27:30-33, Deut. 12:17, Duet. 14:23, 28, 2 Chron. 35:1-6 Nehemiah 10:37 and 12:44, Matthew 23:23 and Luke 11:42. Anyone who suggests of commands Christians to pay tithes from income have misread the Bible when it clearly proves there is no such thing as tithing o non-agricultural increase. Agricultural tithes were mandatory in the scripture and they came from land based products. And by the way, offerings were required three times a year and guess what, only men were required to bring offerings. See Deuteronomy 16:16 which reads “Three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed. 17 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.”
Most pastors love to use the Abraham argument of tithing before the law law to justify why believers must pay a tithe in the age of grace. However, as James Ngari of Facebook’s Tithing. The Bitter Truth dispels any notion that tithing is required or that Abram freely tithe based on God’s command when he wrote:
Abraham’s Tithe to Melchizedek Reflected Pagan Tradition. The false teaching is that Abraham freely gave tithes because it was God’s will. For the following reasons, Genesis 14:20 cannot be used as an example for Christians to tithe.
(1) The Bible does not say that Abraham “freely” gave this tithe.
(2) Abraham’s gift was NOT a holy tithe from God’s holy land gathered by God’s holy people under God’s holy Old Covenant.
(3) Abraham’s tithe was only from pagan spoils of war common to many nations.
(4) In Numbers 31, God only required 1% of spoils of war.
(5) Abraham’s tithe to Melchizedek was a one-time recorded event.
(6) Abraham’s tithe was not from his own personal property.
(7) Abraham kept nothing for himself; he gave everything back.
(8) Abraham’s tithe is not quoted anywhere in the Bible to endorse tithing.
(9) Genesis 14, verse 21, is the key text. Since most commentaries explain verse 21 as an example of pagan Arab tradition, it is contradictory to explain the 90% of verse 21 as pagan, while insisting that the 10% of verse 20 was God’s will.
(10) If Abraham is an example for Christians to give 10% to God, then he should also be an example for Christians to give the other 90% to Satan, or to the king of Sodom!
(11) Since neither Abraham nor Jacob had a Levitical priesthood to support, they had no place to bring tithes and probably left food for the poor at their altars.
Another person in the feed on Facebook wrote that item (12) would be that Abram had to kill someone before he had the elements to tithe.
TITHING MONEY DEBUNKED BY MANY IN HISTORY
Not only does the Bible debunk tithing, but many people throughout history have argued that tithing money is not biblical and that God never required.
Didascalia Apostolorum (ca. 225)
“No more be bound with sacrifices and oblations, and with sin offerings, purifications, and vows . . . nor yet with tithes and firstfruits. . . . for it was laid upon them [i.e., the Israelites] to give all these things as of necessity, but you are not bound by these things. . . . Now thus shall your righteousness abound more than their tithes and firstfruits and part offerings, when you shall do as it is written: Sell all thou hast, and give to the poor.”

Waldenses (ca. 12th century)
The Waldenses, followers of Peter Waldo (ca. twelfth century), believed that tithes should not be given to priests “because there was no use of them in the primitive Church.”

Thomas Aquinas (1225–1275)
“Paying tithes, it appears, is no longer of precept, because the precept to pay tithes was given in the Old Law. . . . Paying tithes cannot be considered a moral precept, however, because natural reason does not dictate that one ought to give a tenth, rather than a ninth or an eleventh. Therefore, it is a ceremonial or a judicial precept.”

Roger Williams (1603–1683)
Roger Williams has been credited with founding the first or second Baptist church in America. In 1652, Williams concluded that ministers of the gospel are to serve freely and be supported freely, “and that not in stinted Wages, Tithes, Stipends, Salaries, &c. but with larger or lesser supplies, as the Hand of the Lord was more or lesse extended in his weekly blessings on them.”

Milton wrote forcibly against tithes, which he considered ceremonial and abolished.

Martin Luther (1483–1546)
“I would even be glad if [today] lords ruled according to the example of Moses. If I were emperor, I would take from Moses a model for [my] statutes; not that Moses should be binding on me, but that I should be free to follow him in ruling as he ruled. For example, tithing is a very fine rule, because with the giving of the tenth all other taxes would be eliminated. For the ordinary man it would also be easier to give a tenth than to pay rents and fees. Suppose I had ten cows; I would then give one. If I had only five, I would give nothing.”

Robinson was the pastor of the “Pilgrim Fathers” before they left on the Mayflower. Robinson remained in Holland with the majority of the congregation. He wrote that he supported the views of Ainsworth and Smyth. In his argument, he claimed that the author of Hebrews taught that “the law is abolished by the gospel, in the sense we speak of: and the old testament by the new, in respect of ordinances,” and tithing was one of those ordinances that had been abolished. He argued that the maintenance of ministers should be through voluntary contributions.

“I say again, let there be a national religion, and a national clergy supported by the state; but let them be supported by a tax, not by tithes, or rather let them be paid out of the general taxation; or, if the tithe system must be continued, let the poor-rates be abolished, and the clergy, out of the tithes, support the poor in their respective parishes, as was the original custom.”

“I hear a great deal about the tithing of incomes. I have no sympathy with the movement at all. A tenth in the case of one man is meanness, and in the case of another man is dishonesty. I know men today who are Christian men in city churches and village chapels, who have no business to give a tenth of their income to the work of God. They cannot afford it. I know other men who are giving one-tenth, and the nine-tenths they keep is doing harm to their souls.

There is no scripture in the Bible were they did turn the land and crop tithe into money, but what the Israelites did with the money once they got to the temple blows up any argument that Israelites paid money to the temple or to the priests. Here is what Deuteronomy 14:24-27 says, “But if the journey is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, or if the place where the LORD your God chooses to put His name is too far from you, when the LORD your God has blessed you, 25 then you shall exchange it for money, take the money in your hand, and go to the place which the LORD your God chooses. 26 And you shall spend that money for whatever your heart desires: for oxen or sheep, for wine or similar drink, for whatever your heart desires; you shall eat there before the LORD your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household. 27 You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no part nor inheritance with you.” This scripture clearly debunk monetary tithing because God told the Israelite farmer and herders that if the livestock and crop tithe was to much to carry to the temple festival site, they could sell their tithes and carry the money rather than the goods to the temple site. When they arrived at the place where God choose he told them according the Jewish Bible “…and exchange the money for anything you want–cattle, sheep, wine, other intoxicating liquor, or anything you please–and you are to eat there in the presence of Adonai, and enjoy yourself , you and your household (verse 26).”
Based on scripture, not one penny of the money carried to temple was ever paid as a tithe. In fact it is clear that they spent the money on food and drink and ate the tithe in what I would call a potluck dinner. They had a party with God and ate good food celebrating the blessings they had received. Sorry pastors, Duet. 14 is not a smoking gun for monetary tithing, but it is a clear rejection of the monetary tithe scam. Following the examples of the New Covenant giving principles is the only way to support ministry and churches.
In my effort to debunk false tithing claims, let me give you more refutations that blow up the pro-monetary tithe doctrine so that you will know that truth does not lie but sheds light on falsehood. We often hear preacher say that tithing was before the law. That claim is false because the tithe before the law was not the same as the tithe in the law. The tithe was not commanded until the law was established under Moses. The tithe ordinance law was abolished by the institution of the New Covenant and Hebrews 9 and 10 makes this clear. Another twisted tithe searching asserts that tithing is how God’s church receives support. There is no verse in the Bible to substantiate that claim so it is false because Paul stated that believer support the church in this way 2 Cor. 9;7: Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (NIV). One of the most heinous violations of scriptural interpretation is when a pastors say, tithing keep the Devil from attacking your finances. This is blatant robbery of God’s people and is patently false and out of context because Malachi 3:8-11 is not talking about money tithing. And the devourer mentioned in the verse refers to Israel’s devourer which is locusts. Here is an excerpt from my book, kleptomaniac: Who’s Really Robbing God Anyway? that explains the devourer in the proper Hebrew text.
The theological question one must ask is: Who is the devourer? Is he the devil or is he something or someone else? If you don’t know, keep reading and the truth will set you free from fear forever. So let’s see what the Bible says based on the Hebrew language and not what man says from personal interpretation. In Malachi 3:11, the key word is devourer. From Strong’s #398, devourer in the Hebrew is “akal.” It means to eat, feed, or consume. It refers to something that eats food, either man or animal. The Hebrew word has six meanings: “1) to eat (human subject), 2) to eat, devour (used of animals and birds), 3) to devour, consume (used of fire), 4) to devour, to kill (used of sword), 5) to devour, consume, destroy (inanimate subjects: that is, pestilence, drought), 6) to devour (used of oppression).”
If you examine the context of Malachi 3:11 and the six meanings and nuances of the Hebrew word “akal,” then who and what is the devourer? Using word study and replacing the word devourer in the text with each of the Hebrew meanings will show you how to interpret the text.
- And I will rebuke the [humans] for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground…
- And I will rebuke the [birds, animals, insects] for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground…
- And I will rebuke [fire] for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground;… And I will rebuke the [pestilence, drought] for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground…
- And I will rebuke the [sword] for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground…
6. And I will rebuke the [oppressor] for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground…
Because the Hebrew word “akal” has different nuances and meanings, we must examine its use in the text to make sure who and what the context of Malachi 3:11 refers to when it uses the word devourer. In Exodus 24:16-17, devourer is used to describe God as a devouring fire. What we see in the text is God in a theophany (a manifestation or appearance of a deity), as a cloud in verse 16 and fire in verse 17. To the Israelites, the glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire (Devourer Heb. akal KJV) on top of the mountain. In this context, the devourer (akal) is not the devil but is God as a manifestation.
In Deuteronomy 4:24, “akal” is used to describe God as a consuming fire. “For the LORD your God is a consuming fire (Hebrew Akal), a jealous God.” The context of this verse has no connection to the devil but ascribes human feelings and affections to God associated with jealousy using figurative language, which is often called anthropopatheia in theology.
In Genesis 37:33, Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers and they took his coat of many colors and killed an animal and dipped Joseph’s coat in the blood to fake his death to Jacob. Jacob said in verse 33 “…It is my son’s robe! Some ferocious animal has devoured (Devourer Heb. akal) him. Joseph has surely been torn to pieces” (NIV). The word devourer in this context is the nuance that speaks of an animal consuming human flesh like a devouring beast. No way one can insinuate that the devil is referenced in this verse either. To equate the devil with the word devourer would mean that Joseph’s brothers would have had to say the devil ate the body of Joseph. That is preposterous!
It is amazing what word study can do for people who seek truth to what a word means in the Bible. Word study is a valuable study practice to ward off false doctrine. The same Hebrew word “akal” is used in Genesis 2:16-17, “And the LORD God commanded the man, You are free to eat (“akal”) from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat (“akal”) from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it, you will certainly die.” As I stated earlier, devourer in this nuanced context of the Hebrew word “akal” deals not with an animal but with Adam, a human, eating from the trees in the Garden of Eden. There is no way you can turn the Hebrew word in this verse into the devil either. I hope you realize at this point that the devourer in Malachi is not the devil and never has been.
When the prophet spoke in Malachi 3:11, could he have had Psalms 105:34-35 in mind because the same Hebrew word “akal” describes what devourer means. The verse says, “He spoke, and the locusts came, grasshoppers without number; they ate up [“akal”] every green thing in their land, ate up [“akal”] the produce of their soil” (NKJV). The text shows that pests were devouring everything in Egypt. There are many other instances of devourer appearing in the Scripture that show the word “akal.” Amos 4:6-9 and Exodus 10:3-5, 14-15 refers to the same Hebrew word “akal,” where pests are eating something.
Nowhere does the word “akal” imply that the devourer is the devil. From the list I gave, only number 2 is the correct word for Malachi 3:11. In the verse God uses the pronoun he to indicate something that eats crops. The context shows that God will rebuke insects or locusts from destroying their crops and would prevent fruit from falling off the vine before they ripen. The devourer is not the devil in Malachi. So there is no curse on you or your money for not tithing. If you suspect that my analysis is wildly inconclusive, then let the Bible explain itself. Malachi 3:11 says, “I will also stop locusts from destroying your crops and keeping your vineyards from producing” (CEV). The NIV says, “I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit,” says the Lord Almighty.”
When God said he would rebuke the devourer, he was only speaking of little creatures and insects that destroy agriculture. There was no blessing of rain because God shut up the sky. Without rain, the animals would starve and die of thirst. So in Malachi it was drought and insects that caused problems for the Hebrew people all because the priests profaned the tithing covenant laws of Levi. The Hebrew language explains and proves the devourer in Malachi is not something you should be afraid of unless you are a farmer. The curse of Malachi is God holding back rain from the land and allowing insects to run rampant throughout the crops during a drought. If Israel tithed livestock and crops in the manner God instructed, He promised to give them rain, to keep locust from eating their crops and that the fruit from the trees wouldn’t fall prematurely. What God promised in Malachi is directly related to Israel’s agricultural land economy and nothing to do with money. Malachi is not talking about your paycheck. Finally, if a pastor tells you that you will not receive God’s best and are cursed for not tithing, tell him or her the New Testament says in Galatians 3:13 that Christ became sin and a curse for us, so there is no curse for not tithing. Tell them that Paul wrote, “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree” (NIV).
No matter what you hear come from the pulpit, always remember that when the Bible says tithes, God is asking for eatable agricultural products from the land and livestock.
One of the most common claims made about tithing is when Christians say, “I tried tithing and it works,” but that claim is false because tithing money is based on a false assumption and false motive that tithing is money that God requires. The reality is, God does not honor a practice based false assumptions and misinterpretation of scripture. Then we have other believer saying, “The Lord convicted me to tithe.” That may sound noble, but it is a false claim because the Holy Spirit always convicts based on truth and not falsehood, lies or error. The conviction to tithe does not come from the Lord, it comes from the conviction of another who browbeats people to pay ten percent from the pulpit or be cursed. It really is not the Lord convicting Christians to tithe, it is fear of a so-called curse from God that motives people to believe that ten percent of their paycheck is required from Yahweh. One of the latest shell tricks from the pulpit is to tell believers that Jesus is their Melchizedek as if that is enough to force them to believe in tithing, which some do. Melchizedek was a priest and because Jesus priesthood was after the order of Melchizedek, all believers are required to tithe. It is false because Hebrews 10:12 says, “But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,” This scam won’t work because we are all no Kings and Priests in the Kingdom of God and as such, we as priest don’t pay a tithe. There is no more sacrifice or tithing because our high priest Christ is sat down at the right hand of the father.
If people take time to study their Bibles, it would not be difficult to debunk tithing. However, when I studied the subject I wanted to make sure I left no tithing scripture unturned. So in my power point original tithing study on New Testament Giving compiled some evidence from others on how others refuted an debunked false tithing claims. Check out the two slides below.
