Welcome with open arms fellow believers who don't see things the way you do.
And don't jump all over them every time they do or say something you don't agree with
- even when it seems that they are strong on opinions but weak in the faith department.

Mal.3:8 "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings."


Can those who are robbing God of tithes and offerings "inherit the kingdom of God" OR ... is it okay to be a thief if you are just robbing from God rather than from man?

Quote:
1 Cor. 6:9-10
"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."


Here are some thoughts:

Our prophet says that Tithe is the "Test of heavenly fellowship" See EV 251

She also states that Faithfulness in tithe paying is a condition to answered prayers. See COL144

Dishonesty in tithing "is registered in the books of heaven as robbery toward Him." CS 77

In the Church Manual p. 135 Tithe paying is described as a "spiritual exercise in which we should all have a part of. It can't be separated from the message of salvation".

If thieves are admitted into heaven, so should idolaters and adulterers, and murderers, etc. etc.

Praise God Gerry. Yes, we do know that there will be idolaters and adulterers, and/or murderers in Heaven. In fact there already is.

Do any of you know the purpose for tithe as designed by God in the Old Testament? Today the church (SDA and otherwise) uses the concept of 'tithe' to extort money from the masses of believers as a means of command and control, and as a means of wielding power. No one goes beyond the texts cited above because they support this extortion, when they do not mean what it is said they mean.

If you do even a little research on this you will discover that the real purpose of tithe was to celebrate before the Lord. Secondary to that was taking care of the needy and supplying the priesthood with what they needed to work in the Temple.

As with other things Jesus put an end to tithing when He died on the cross.

Pray tell, how are those spreading the gospel supposed to live?
No one is twisting my arm to return the tithe.

If someone doesn't want to show their ownership to God and that God is the owner of all we have ... then I would have to question their relationship.

The symbolism is out of this world. No extortion needed. Just a love for God.

Ya Gerry, pray tell how William Miller and his group ever got the time and money to spread the news and get a group together as found in 1844? Huh?

Wasn't it Uriah Smith who said that when 'we' have to pay people to study and hear the truth of the gospel, then that is when it will become a business and will cease to become what God wishes as every man and woman are the priests. Jesus NEVER came to set up any church and establish a paid position as a pastor. Each of the disciples were to teach others and pass along this message of the Kingdom of Heaven. As such, they still needed their jobs as fishermen.

Are not we to trust in God and not in man?

Read the rest! "you are cursed with a curse". That's old covenant. Compare Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them."

Tithing is not a condition of heaven. If it is heaven is for sale and so is salvation. Having said that, it makes since to support the church you attend.

Nothing's for sale. Believe me ... more people will be saved who DON'T pay tithe compared to those that DO. (At least according to Woody's prognistication.) Paying Tithe does not get you closer to heaven in any way. But those going to heaven ... often times do pay tithe. And for good reason.

And how were the priests supported in OT times?

ESV | Ac 6:2 And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables.

ESV | Dt 25:4 “You shall not muzzle an ox when it is treading out the grain.

Tithing does not save, but stealing will certainly keep the thief out of heaven.

The practice of tithing came loooonnnnnggg before the Law.

"With their lips they show much love, but their pocketbooks are far from me." Paraphrase.

Not sure what Gerry meant about the law. I meant that Abraham after rescuing Lot, I believe, he paid a tithe to the high priest of Salem. Not sure if that was the first time tithe had been paid or not? But that's what I was thinking.

The angels had the law prior to Sinai. So did humans. It was just because of the stupidity of the peoples that God had to give it in written form.

Jesus did not put an end to "tithe" when He died on the cross. Show one Bible text that supports that please!

Maybe if we take your idea all the way; we could just give testimony to the world that we tithe so we can afford to buy more of these:

We get to heaven by believing in Jesus (John 3:16) not by tithe paying, Sabbath keeping, vegetarianism or any other "act" or self-works.

Can one enter heaven without tithing? Hmmmm thinking That's something like asking can we stay married without providing food for our spouse? Perhaps possible but very problematic.

"For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God himself. I promised you as a pure bride to one husband—Christ. "2 Corinthians 11:2 NLT

As to are there murderers or adulterers in heaven? Decidedly not, if one accepts God's Word as reliable. And to tell you the truth, whether you believe His Word or not.

"Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17 AMP brackets parenthesis their's LHC

There will be no "old man of sin" to contend with, in heaven or the earth made new!

God blesses! peace

Good show, Woody. It's one of those principles of the Kingdom revealed by the Holy Spirit only to those who work for God out of a love for Him.

What do you mean by believing in Jesus? Do you mean all we have to do is believe that Jesus existed?

What does it mean to believe in Jesus?

How does John 3: 3 figure in?

John 3:3
Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."

Praise God Gerry. Yes, we do know that there will be idolaters and adulterers, and/or murderers in Heaven. In fact there already is.


The important difference is that whoever is in heaven (whether Moses or anyone else) was a repentent, ex-murderer long before they were transplanted to heaven.

It's like Paul says in 1 Cor. 6: 9-11:

1 Cor. 6:9-11
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, [10] nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. [11] And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

How 'ex must an 'ex be? Of course we know that even an 'ex would not be well accepted in our churches. Even David who was an 'ex and a man after God's heart ... was a repeat murderer after being a man after God's own heart.

Are you saying that ALL are saved? Kinda sounds like it. If our belief is not important in the saving process ... then all must be saved. Am I reading you wrong?

Either you are reading me wrong or I am not saying it right - I dunno. But what I mean is that If someone is saved; it would be by Jesus; and not because of belief. Which is our Savior? Jesus, or belief?

Belief has too many different meanings and nuances; and Jesus has only one way of salvation. It's called Calvary.

Okay. I think I understand better. There are all kinds of belief. But we just have the belief in Jesus as our Savior. We are called to believe on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and we will be saved. Isn't that clear? For without faith it is impossible to please Him.

There is no instruction whatsoever to the Church for us to pay tithe. It is an Old Covenent commandment to Israel.

Was it actually a "commandment?" And was it actually a "covenant?" (Old or New?) What scriptures would you use to prove your point?

My experience is this

Those who pay tithe usually have a stable Christian experience as well as stability in other areas in life, family, finance and other foundations.

Those who don't usually have a yo-yo kind of Christian experience etc etc.

Others may have had different experiences.

Are not the two greatest commandments also "old covenant"?
