FITC46 | What Does The Bible Teach About Money?

Have you ever felt confused about tithing or giving money to the church? Well, if you are, you are not alone. Depending on how much time you spend in the church, you have probably encountered a wide variety of opinions on the issue.

In the book God and Money, the author’s quote a survey conducted by the National Association of Evangelicals where they found a split even among pastors. According to their survey, 42% of respondents believe that giving 10% of one’s income is mandated of New Covenant believers while 58% percent do not.

With such disagreement existing between pastors, how can anyone make sense of God’s Word? Well, in today’s episode Pastor Jonathan explains that the problem with these discussions rests in how you read the Bible. Sadly most people read the Bible incorrectly and come to conclusions that are not biblically sound.

Key Notes to Remember

  • The New Testament never teaches that Christians must give 10% of their monthly income.
  • The problem with conversations about tithing stems from disagreements on how to interpret scripture and relate the Old Testament to the New Testament.
  • The author of Hebrews in chapter 7 makes clear that generosity should be the measure of our giving.
