For years I have wrestled with the huge dicotomy which exists between the teaching of christian churches regarding money ...and what the scriptures actually teach on this very important and practical issue.
Peter warned the early church of this even in his day..
And Jesus himself warned his disciples of the importance of being faithful in regard to other peoples money...and so did most of the other apostles. And yet today the world DOES blaspheme the way of truth saying....
"Can't you see that all the are after is your money?"
And the churches from their ivory towers respond ..."They are just being greedy"
Yet here we have the scriptures warning us as believers of the real reason...that COVETOUSNESS (on the part of the one seeking to acquire the money)... will be secretly planned by teachers as the way to EXPLOIT the sheep...and that this is done by the introduction of destructive HERESIES.
In approx AD 770 the Roman Catholic church introduced the requirement to 'tithe'...while it was in the dark ages and certainly apostate. The majority of protestant and evangelical churches followed some time after 1800 ....lured by greed for the money which this heresy generated.
So what does God really want from us in this matter.....hopefully my e-book will be of assistance to set the children of God FREE from deception and control of tithing and other heresies taught in regards to finances which are still sadly rampant in churches today.
So that God's children can walk in the glorious liberty that Jesus died for us to know.
