I think it is kind of funny that with all the different religions and their different beliefs, they all believe in tithing. Religious groups will pick apart pretty much any doctrine or belief but THEY ALL believe in tithing. This brings me to the Question of the Day:
For those who may not be familiar with the concept of tithing, a “tithe” is ten percent of your income. A person who gives five percent of their income to their church isn’t tithing because they aren’t giving ten percent. The purpose of the tithe is to support the functions of the local church as well as provide a living for the church staff.
My wife and I tithe. However, we don’t tithe it all to our local church. We direct some of our tithe outside our local church to three different Christian organizations. I’m curious as to what my readers’ opinions are regarding tithing. Please send me your comments.
