The New Testament, the Church and Tithing

TOO MANY CHRISTIAN CHURCHES, DENOMINATIONS NOW do now differ very significantly from EACH OTHER  including the Mennonites, Brethren, Baptists, Catholics, Anglican, Presbyterian.  Some even   preach the whole or full Gospel of Jesus Christ; Jesus as Savior, Healer, Deliverer, Provider, coming King, Baptizer of the Holy Ghosts, Sanctifier, Giver of gifts too… and yet most churches still are not more spiritual over the others, mainly because the leadership has watered down the requirements of what it takes to be a Christian, a church member .. apparently you can often buy a membership by tithing, giving ten percent of your income to the local church.. https://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2009/11/02/for-without-me-ye-can-do-nothing/

Generally, mostly it is the insecure people in God, because of their still unresolved guilt, who falsely have an emphasis on forced evangelism, and they falsely do support enforced, forced tithing because they do not have enough of a relationship with God for HIM to supply all of their needs for their ministry. It should be noted that Jesus himself and the Original apostles had never requested tithing, and clearly they had not relied on tithing for all of their missionary endeavours. They trusted God for their leading and their needs to be met Jesus himself and the Original apostles financial request lay solely in helping the poor Christians. These same people generally are falsely trying to find God’s favour not by faith in Jesus Christ but falsely by their religious good efforts as they clearly still do not know what faith in God means..
.
Romans 3 : 3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
.
Hebrews 11
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2014/10/10/tithing-2/

 Pastors do you have one, one New Testament verse that confirms Tithing has been mandated for the New testament Church by God?  I am not aware of one, If you do which one is it?
 
 Deuteronomy 14:22-29   Is it also true that “Just like today in social aid, the people receiving social  aid they now cannot own major tangible property, real estate, so any of   the people, priests  receiving the old testament tithes they also could not own any major tangible, real estate  properties.. but today the false priest, pastors who are demanding on receiving tithes they falsely also do want to still own a home… to enjoy the monetary rewards of both.. they are still equivalent of welfare cheats. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/secret-tithing/
The Catholic church collects tithes, but so do many evangelical churches, and some cults too.. even though tithes is applicable only in the Old Testament and to the Jewish persons only too.  The Tithe in the new Testament is voluntary, non compulsive and is enforceable in the New Testament. ..  but the problem also today still is that many of the people who collect the tithe, violate often the OT laws on tithing and do  steal from the tithe as well.. the OT had specified 1/7 of the tithe had to be given to the poor.. something the present  tithe collectors do not mention, do not preach nor practice wrongfully in reality.. http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/29/the-ttihe/
Jesus himself did not live off the proceeds of tithes, So now why all the fuss over one or two isolated and misapplied verses ABOUT TITHING in Malachi 3?And NOWHERE in the New Testament does God even authorize him to take up, spend  any of tithes in His Name.  http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/08/23/to-the-bad-preacher/
 I  have absolutely no doubt that many Canadian evangelical pastors included now are falsely lying, unacceptably misrepresenting the Biblical truth,  pressurizing, twisting the arms of members and adherents  to regularly tithe to their storehouse, to the Pastor’s benefit, so the pastor can live high on the hog now. As I look back in my life the last half a century some of the most immoral, despotic, cruel persons I have encountered in Canada were not just in the business world but actually pastors in various Christian  churches and why was, is that?  (Prov 31:8 KJV)  “Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.  9    Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.” To be able to judge righteously, though, the Church itself and the Preacher now must be also righteous.      http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/rev-george-muller/
 
How many “faith” preachers in our day hoard vast riches for themselves while crying to  “seed sowers” EVEN THOSE on Social Security  to send in money or they’ll go bust! “  “How many of these evil religious, TITHE, donations peddlers shamelessly appeal to the story of Elijah being fed by the last of a starving widow’s flour and oil so they can put more bread in their bank account and fuel their own lusts! done all the while deliberately withholding  part of the Truth of His Word from the Body of Christ to leech off of poor brethren so they themselves can splash around in the lap of luxury!   ” Some of ye are sick and nigh unto death cause ye do approach the Lord’s table unworthily. “Preachers are committing this sin by adding Tithing on Wages, NOWHERE taught even under the Old Law!  Preachers latch onto the ten per cent figure because it seems like a good idea, regardless of what God thinks.  But they neglect the Israelites’ third-year tithe taken to feed the poor . 
Tithing Truth in a Nutshell

1. Unqualified religious leaders (Gentiles) should not take up tithes.

2. God’s tithe NEVER consisted of money!

3. NOWHERE in either Testament are Christians commanded to pay monetary tithes.

4. Tithes consisted only of agricultural produce.

5. Biblical tithes were also sometimes EATEN by the worshipper himself!

Too many Christians even do tithe for the wrong reasons, monetary and not spiritual prosperity, most in fact are still wrongfully worldly minded.. wrongfully trying to become rich even instead of really serving Jesus Christ… http://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/05/22/as-to-why/
I too do rightfully like to check everything with the New Testament too

In Love I am willing to talk to them about these issues now too..

    The concept of biblical tithing is being misused, taken out of context and inappropriately applied to Christians. The biblical tithe falls under the Old Testament/Mosaic Law and only ancient Israel was commanded to pay tithes.

    Once Jesus fulfilled the Law that included the practice of tithing. Therefore, tithing in any form is no longer necessary. Under the New Testament Christians are encouraged to give voluntarily under the direction of the Holy Spirit. Telling Christians to tithe under any circumstance is neither correct nor is it biblical.
