LDS Church Teaches:
Tithing is Essential for membership.
Those who do not pay tithing rob God.
Those who tithe will not burn.
Tithing is required to build LDS temples.
Those who don’t pay tithing are not worthy.
The Bible Teaches:
Abraham gave Melchizedek a tenth of the spoils of war – not a tenth of all his personal possessions or increase.
Under Mosaic Law tithes were paid to the Levites as they served in the tabernacle/temple.
Tithing as a commandment is not found in the New Testament.
Christ fulfilled the law, making mandatory tithes obsolete.
Cheerful freewill giving comes from the heart.
