The Tithe of Malachi 3:8–11 Was a Tax
Word of Faith — a.k.a., Prosperity Gospel — preachers love to talk about tithing. That refers to a traditional practice of giving 10% of your income to your church. If you listen to them, most likely you will hear the same things I heard.
- “Tithing is the door that opens up the blessings of God.”
- “If you tithe, you will be blessed. If you don’t tithe, you will be cursed. It’s that simple.”
- “10% of your income belongs to God. Therefore, if you don’t tithe, you are robbing God.”
