What About Tithing?

#020: What About Tithing? [Podcast]

This week I’m going to tackle the topic of Tithing!

That’s right. After the very successful blog I wrote on Tithing I figured I should really have an audio resource on that topic as well.

This is a topic many are deeply invested in so I’ll try to tread as gently as I can and look in depth at the different aspects in which tithing is taught, through pre-law, the law, Malachi, Jesus, the Apostles and history.

With no stone uncovered it’ll be a great resource if you’ve ever wondered what Christian giving should look like under the New Covenant.

  1. Thanks Phil much food for thought after faith teachings.
    Also advice on how to give.
    How does Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38 NKJV) fit into this.
    It is all about knowing what is a work and what isn’t.
    Can you help please??

    • Matthew 10:8 AMP
      Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons. Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give.
