Sooner or later, somebody’s going to want to know what’s in your wallet so that they can determine how much you should be giving or tithing to the church. So, what’s the lowdown on the business of religion, the tithe and the giving of money? Does the Bible really teach that Christians are bound to the law of tithing? What does the Bible really say about giving 10% of your income? And is it really true that grace causes stinginess when it comes to money? and that’s why it’s important to tithe?
How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
