On Tithing

Two blogs that I respect and enjoy reading (and they enjoy each others thoughts) have posted thoughts regarding tithing.

Puritan Belief has posted: Why Tithing is Wrong

In response to this post...

Drinking Deeply has posted an argument for tithing called: Tithing

Both are great brothers in the Lord discussing an issue worth talking about.

I side with the view that tithing does not capture the essence of New Testament giving nor is it taught as the standard for the church today. One of the best books that cover giving and stewardship is John MacArthur's book, "Who's Money is it Anyway?" However, I don't know that I would say that tithing is wrong or that those who use the giving of 10% as a way of providing structure and discipline. I also know of several pastors and Bible teachers who teach tithing, and although I do not agree with them on this point, they are overall solid teachers and I am careful not to give the impression that they are false teachers.

Interesting reads here... Perhaps after dinner I will come back to check those sites out.
