In the recent times people argued that 10%tithing is an old Testament thing, but you know what? I just discovered now that those people arguing 10% tithes is Old Testament pattern might be correct. This was stated by the Drama Evangelist, Pastor Mike Bamiloye on his Facebook page which he shared to the public.
According to the cleric, he reportedly stated that " probably they would have to abide by the new testament pattern which is even upward to 100% of your earnings. The disciples of Jesus gave their all, there was no reservations. Peter left all the dishes at Jesus command. And again the woman spent almost a whole year salary to buy Alabaster Box of perfume to Honor Jesus Christ with it.
Furthermore, the disciples in the Early Church sold their lands and laid all the proceeds at Apostles feet. However, the cleric said that "he has seen men of God selling their car to finance a crusade, using their houses as collateral to get loan to so projects for the Lord.
Finally, your tithes and offerings hang on this unbearable Biblical principle: 2Corinthians 9:6 NKJV "But this I say : He who does sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who does bountifully will also reap bountifully. When the Lord is the Lord over your entire life, 10% tithe becomes too small to give the Lord. He becomes the master over your life and All that you have.
