"The institution of the tithe was part of the Levitical law that was used to support the civil government in ancient Israel, as well as the Levitical priesthood.  Secular governments now rule the world and we no longer have a religious/civil government to support in ancient Israel.  IMO the tithe has been replaced with freewill gifts and offerings that are from the heart because the Lord loves a cheerful giver.  Your mileage may vary."

"So then, stand firm and hold to the traditions :o which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven.
