A tenth part of one's annual income contributed voluntarily or due as a tax, especially for the support of the clergy or church.
Wow, my parents love to give tithe to the f-ing church, but won't give me a penny. I wonder where that money actually goes...
Didn't the pastors say they have a three-story house by the beach...
The term used when religious folk give 10% of their earnings to their church. Most churches REQUIRE tithing as part of a membership. Tithe is also what makes religion like any other cult
Christian: My church makes me tithe. But I get to spend an eternity in Heaven.
Jimmy: But your children don't even have enough to eat.
Christian: But the cul...err..church I belong to needs the money to squader on useless councils and new uniforms for our worship team.
What god has encouraged all Christians to do in the Bible.
It is 10% of your earnings and people think that doing it will bless thier money but it just helps then not to spend thier money like a fucking idiot because when you get a check and immediately give 10% away it makes you more concious of the money you have left-helping you not overdraft your bank account and think that god is cursing you.
The concept of tithe or tithing was a great business idea for the church.
10% of ones income donated to a church, because the Pastor usually makes you feel bad if you don't give it. Taken from the Old testament example of Israel giving the Levites 10% of livestock because Levi didn't get a land inheritence. The Early Church in Acts however NEVER gave tithes, giving was free-will in the NT Church, The Roman Catholics re-introduced monatary tithes to finance their lavish lifestyles.
"Here there goes Rev. Johnson driving the churches TITHES!
Tithing is the act of giving 10% of one's income to the church. Churches don't force this upon the people, but it is encouraged. The Bible says that all of the money belongs to God, but He only wants the first 10%. Think of it this way, would you rather have 90% of your income blessed, or 100% of your income cursed? God blesses those that tithe to Him. I tithe and give an offering on top of the tithe, and I have more money than any of my friends that are my age. It's not because my family is rich (which it's not)but it's because I've been blessed by God.
Build God's House and He'll build your house.
"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this." Says the Lord of hosts, "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it." Malachi 3:10
