The Witchcraft of the Tithe:
Fallacies and Ambiguities of the Tithing Hoax
Of late Christians all over the world have come up openly to challenge the tithing heresy in books, newspapers and social media.
Prosperity pastors are now trying to defend the heresy because they are afraid that their prosperity ‘ponzi' scheme is about to collapse like a sac of rotten potatoes.The word "tithe" literally means 'a tenth'.
And today it is used as a Law in many churches to force Christians to give one tenth of their income to that church.
Many are told that they are "robbing God" if they do not give at least this much to the institution they attend each Sunday.
But is Tithing a New Testament practice at all? Is it really for Christians, or is it part of the Old Covenant? Is there really a law in force stating that all Christians must give ten percent? Or are we supposed to be "cheerful givers" - simply giving whatever God has placed on our hearts? Are you confused about tithing? This book takes you through the fallacies and ambiguities of the tithing heresy.
