"And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,"
According to Genesis 1 vs 31, it was recorded that: "And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
In view of the above therefore, I bring to you the following for your deliberations.
"Yesterday, I said drinking alcohol isn’t a sin and Deuteronomy 14:26 permits use of tithes to buy alcohol, and religionists say it‘s an Old Testament law. Has it occurred to them that Malachi 3:10, that they use to justify tithes, is Old Testament?" @renoomokri
Then comments followed:
Drinking alcohol may not be a sin but intoxication is,so how do avoid drinking without getting drunk,remember the Bible says if ur eyes will lead you to sin, plug it out,it's better to go to heaven with 1 eye and while not paying tithe is not a sin alcohol may lead you to sin.
People can choose to abuse anything in this world, that doesn't mean consumption of such things are prohibited or sinful. So it's your choice to take such things for their usefulness/the pleasure they provide or abuse them and face the consequences. That is the reality of life.
It's highly impossible to always drink and not eventually get drunk in one of the occasion and it may lead you to commit even a greater sin than drunkenness; because of the temporary lose of your sense, it is better to avoid alcohol than to drink with aim to drink little but get drunk.
Then, tithing issues follow:
Hebrews 7:8👉 "AND HERE MEN THAT DIE RECEIVE TITHES;BUT THERE HE RECEIVETH THEM,OF WHOM IT IS WITNESSED THAT HE LIVETH". Don't ignore this part of the bible.
A Spiritual bible student should understand this scripture & not these false interpreters that claim to be telling the scriptures.
Abraham payed tithe to Melchizedek. Jacob payed tithed too. Our fathers did this before the law of Moses. Tithing was practiced in the New Testament. Looking for excuses not to pay tithe is not having understanding what the Covenant is. We give our offerings but pay our tithe.
Can you please direct me to any Bible verse in the New Testament that tithing was practiced?
Now, what is your own submission and opinion?
