Popular controversial social media personality, Daddy Freeze, spoke about the tithe via a post on his verified social media page, saying that you can give your tithe to the poor. He said this while responding to a social media user who said tithe could be used to pay school fees or house rent.
He affirmed that the Bible says tithe should be given to the Levites (people of the tribe of Levi), women who have lost their husbands to death and orphans who hardly feed because of poverty, not using it to pay school charges or house rent. According to him, it should be given to the poor since we no longer have Levites.
He gave two Bible verses to prove that you can give your tithe to the poor. The verses are Deuteronomy 26:12 and Deuteronomy 14:28-29.
According to the New King James Version, Deuteronomy 26:12 says, "When you have finished laying aside all the tithe of your increase in the third year, which is the year of tithing, and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless and the widow, so that they may eat within your gates and be filled".
According to the New King James Version, Deuteronomy 14:28-29 says: "At the end of every third year, you shall bring out the tithe of your produce of that year and store it up within your gates. And the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates, may come and eat and be satisfied, that the Lord will bless the work of your hand".
