I totally disagree with your premise that the tithe is 10% and given as firstfruits. The bible never calls the tithe 10% of anything or of currency for that matter and it is completely different from the firstfruits.

The tithe in scripture is defined as the THE TENTH of agricultural produce and livestock. And this was determined by grouping the crops into ten equal parts and separating the tenth part as the tithe and counting off every TENTH animal and separating it as the tithe. So if a farmer had only 9 sheep for instance, He could not tithe because there was no tenth.

Malachi 3 was not written to today’s church. It was simply a reminder of Deuteronomy 28: a warning given to the children of Israel on the consequences of breaking any one of the Old Testament laws.

The firstfruits on the other hand were the first sheaves of corn and barley to ripen before the rest of the harvest. Some of the sheaves were waved before God while some of the grains were baked into a loaf and waved before God. It was shadow of the resurrection of Christ.

Agriculture being the primary economy in biblical times did not mean money was not available but God never gave the command to tithe money. You cannot tithe money.

If it is giving you are trying to talk about, then that is a completely different thing. The New Testament principle of giving is that everyone should give as they able and no 10% benchmark is stipulated.

God bless.

I hope this allowed, I have never used this website before so I wasn't really sure what this was going to do. So this is just a test post. I really like this forum, it has some excellent discussions that take place.
