Daddy freeze replies a lady who shared a story of how she gave her tithes to the poor, asking if it was Right for her to do so, since the Tithe was meant for the church/pastor.
AS SHE POSTED:
DADDY FREEZE REPLIES;
“Well technically yes, you have paid the poor tithe which is one of the three types of tithing recommended by Moses.
“However, as a christian, you shouldn’t pay tithes! Ask any pastor to show you one single scripture where Christians (Christians not Jews, Malachi is for Jews remember?), were instructed to pay tithes, where anyone who wasn’t Jewish paid tithes or where Christ or the disciples collected tithes and they would start connecting imaginary dots in their heads fueled by their fertile imaginations.
“Tithing is the old law (Hebrews7:5), and the old law is the law of Sin and death:
“◄ Romans 8:2 ►
New International Version
because through Christ the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
“◄ 1 Corinthians 15:56 ►
New Living Translation
For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power.
“And obeying only a portion of the law, without obeying all of it brings a curse upon you:
“◄ Galatians 3:10 ►
New International Version
For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.

“Now some pastors would say tithing precedes the law citing the instance Abram gave Melchizedek a tithe in Genesis 14, forgetting to inform you that Abram did this only once in his life, from the proceeds of war and not his income.
“Also, note that after removing the 10% he returned the 90% or so back to the king of Sodom, where he got it from, do you return 90% of your salary back to your office?? This was also before the specific promise for Christianity in Genesis 17 so it doesn’t count as a Christian doctrine. –
Giving to the poor makes you fulfil the instructions of Yahushua in Mathew 25, so give to the poor over tithes any day! ?

“Yes you have, y’all should stop giving money to church, I always share to people when I have even sent money to paid children school fees that’s the right thing to do, stop giving money to pastors ?
rotimicoker1799 “When you say Tithing is old law, dis Jesus not say he came to maintain the law? He further said that you will not enter Heaven if yr righteousness does not exceed those of the Pharises. He also told us abt the greatest comandments and we shld abide by it. Essentially it is show love to one another. Simply, looking afta the poor, sick, widow, the weak etc amongst others. If yr church uses yr money to show love through its various community projects what the heck is wrong with this? And showing love is more than just feeding pple once a week or month. You ave to empower them so that they can stand on their own too.
