James MacDonald, the founding pastor of the Harvest Bible Chapel church network, expands on that idea. They are not experiencing the grace of giving. God knows what you give.

Every time that offering plate comes down the aisle, He sees you take that huge step of faith, cheerfully giving what you can. But His blessing is stopped up if you sit there fearfully, miserly withholding. But both Floyd and MacDonald went well beyond that in the above quotes. By making tithing giving ten percent mandatory and using their pulpits to strong-arm their congregations, they crossed the line between error and extortion.
He concludes that the principle of Malachi 3 does not apply to believers under the New Covenant. For years, many conservative, evangelical, and fundamentalist churches. But such a rigid concept, viewed as a universal and eternal principle for all believers, simply is not taught in Scripture. The New Covenant principle on giving—the one you and I should live by—is not derived from some mandatory percentage.
New Covenant giving flows from the heart and is personally determined. Sadly, rigid and unbiblical rules about tithing have become ingrained in the culture of many churches. For many there is simply no turning back from the massive budgets they now operate on. It will be no small feat to break those patterns and free congregations from those legalistic practices. In fact, our Lord modelled how we ought to respond to that kind of spiritual extortion during His earthly ministry.

What Preachers Never Tell You About Tithes & Offerings
Create Password. Re-type Password. What aren't preachers telling us about their demands for tithes and their requests for offerings?

The short answer is we're being deceived, bullied, and manipulated. The longer answer is this book. Millions of Christians are under the impression that the salvation they received freely "by grace through faith" actually costs a non-negotiable lifetime fee of ten percent of their gross income.

Preachers usually don't explain it this way, and Christians don't usually think of it this way. But when all is said and done, when the preacher's demand is logically examined and followed to its inevitable conclusion, the benefits of salvation-and in the more shocking cases, the possession of salvation-are directly dependent upon whether we pay ten percent of our gross income to the church. Of course, the gospel needs to be preached. Of course, the church's bills must be paid. Of course, worthy ministers-whom I call super servants-should be financially supported.
But is the modern financial tithe system God's way of supporting His work? Convert currency. Add to Basket. Book Description SunHill Publishers, Condition: Good. Former Library book.
