This website was created for the benefit of visitors who are looking specifically for biblically-based resources on the subject of tithing.
The articles, books, links, and audio downloads contained within this site are presented by various authors from many differing denominational backgrounds and Christian perspectives of doctrine. For this reason the viewer should expect the possibility of variance in details of opinions expressed. Though different authors may have slight differences of opinion on aspects of doctrine, it is important to note the consistent message present here, which is that monetary tithing is clearly NOT a New Covenant doctrine and has no place in the Church of Jesus Christ. I hope that statement does not offend you; but if it does, I pray that you will take some time to read the articles and browse through some of the resources provided here. It is not without strong Scriptural basis that such a claim is made.
The site is called “Tithe DIE” because for too long now, a lot of preachers, teachers, pastors and many Christians have tried to keep alive a doctrine that:
1.) Scripture actually does not teach (not the way it is understood today anyway)…
2.) The Bible NOWHERE teaches that the tithe is money!
3.) Jesus never instructed His followers to tithe…
4.) Not even one of the apostles of Jesus in any book of the New Testament ever taught believers to tithe, and…
5.) The New Testament actually teaches the DEATH of tithing! It died when Jesus gave His life on the cross and so does it need to die today from the errant, manipulative teachings so many continue to propagate and that so many others find themselves in bondage under.
He whom the Son sets free is FREE INDEED and that includes from the legalism of tithing!
To my Mormon (and other) friends visiting this site, I hope you will sincerely investigate this subject as well. This subject is not necessarily limited to members of any specific group as there are many religious groups (patterned after the Judeo/Christian tradition) who accept the practice of monetary tithing as being an important facet and/or requisite of their belief system. While my personal faith background stems from a number of Christian denominational and non-denominational origins, I no longer choose to label myself directly by any of these groups and my interest concerning the tithe is to embrace only what Scripture plainly teaches regardless of any outside influence by whatever religious organization may wish to impose their perspective views and legalisms.
For me, faith is about a relationship with God through Jesus Christ – not about tithing. I will explain this reasoning more fully throughout the pages of this site. It’s not so much that I do not believe in tithing, for the Scripture certainly refers to it; however, that which Scripture teaches is quite often contrary to the traditions many of us have grown accustomed to and have not often questioned.
It is the strong opinion of this author that the truth concerning tithing (which includes the perspective that it holds no direct application for followers of Christ today in any form) is clearly taught in the pages of the both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. When Jesus gave His life and shed His precious blood on the Cross, He cried out, “IT IS FINISHED!” At that moment the Law, with all of its types and ceremonies, regulations and ordinances (including tithing) were put to DEATH right there! If you are up for a journey into the Scriptures in the pursuit of truth (and wish to examine the logic behind this bold claim), then I invite you to explore this subject with me.
Yes, there is a bias here. But perhaps not the one most people will assume. I have no intention with this website to steer any reader to any specific church organization, nor was any of this setup to manipulate people to give money donations or any such thing. My desire is simply to highlight the truth I have been convicted by and which has truly set me free; and that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This Gospel affords every true believer great joy, peace, and liberty and makes the Old Covenant legalism of the Law of Moses (including the legalism of tithing) non-applicable, utterly inferior to the path and influence of Grace, and replaces that dead legalism with a better way by which we may draw near to God, walk in His love with changed hearts, and be led by His Spirit.
