Check Out The Bible Passage That Says What Your Tithe Should Be Used For


The tithe is specifically mentioned in the Books of Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The first tithe is giving of one tenth of agricultural produce after the giving of the standard terumah to the Levite or Aaronic priests. Historically, during the First Temple period, the first tithe was given to the Levites.


Tithing has always been a hot topic among Christians and even non-believers. This is because some pastors believe they cannot preach properly.


The main reason most people do not believe in the concept of tithing is because they have seen the lavish lifestyle and the large church buildings where most pastors live, but some members of the tithe still live in poverty.


Recently, Bishop David Oyedepo, a senior pastor at the Winners Chapel, was accused of "making it impossible to get rich without paying tithing." Some people don't like it because they ask if a rich man like Bill Gates would tithe.



Most pastors prefer this verse (Malachi 3: 8) which says, “I took my tithe home and ate it. If not, you are stopping me from preaching tithing.

Above is the point of view from the scriptures displaying what tithes really means and what it can be used for.

If knowledge is adequately granted upon us there wouldn't have be an argument today.

But look what this Bible verse (Deuteronomy 26: 12-13) says about the use of tithing.
