More on Tithe: For Bible Believing Christians Only

This blog post is not for the majority of the church folks out there although it can enrich your thinking.  It's not necessarily for those cults out there like the Mormons, the Jehovah's Witnesses or the Oneness folks.  This one is for all of those who actually believe the bible and really want to enrich their lives with its teachings.  I know and realize that the majority of the churches teach that tithing is something that God approves of; and there are even fewer (if any) that will not accept your tithe if you give it to them. But being a majority doesn't make it right.  We can use the old grade school adage that if your church told you to jump off a cliff, would you jump off a cliff?  The sad thing is that there are a certain percentage of people that will do just about anything a preacher tells them to do if that preacher is convincing enough to make people believe that his message is coming from God.  People flock into churches by the millions every Sunday expecting to hear a message from God; so it is not surprising that if the majority of preachers around the world teach that people should pay their tithe, a large percentage of them will do it without really questioning them or studying the bible for themselves.

Peppy Puffin:  My NTCC A former ntccer has pep in his step as he realizes he doesn't have to keep the old testament law!
This X-member of the ntcc has a Little Pep in His Step Because he No Longer Pays His Tithe To Support the One Million Dollar Recreational Vehicles, Quarter Million Dollar McLaren, Sports Cars and Multi-Million Dollar Real Estate Ventures to Include the Exclusive Davis and Kekel Estates That Current ntcc Tithers are Paying For While the Poor Suffer.

Let's take a look at how the ntcc gets people to believe that tithe is a heaven or hell issue.  They don't use the bible; because it is impossible to teach something that is not in the bible.  Paying tithe to a New Testament preacher is not in the bible.  Every gerah or shekel of tithe that was ever paid or given, that was given according to scripture, was given in Israel.  Gentile preachers are not commanded anywhere in the bible to give or pay tithes and never were.  So the ntcc has to make you believe that it is God's will for you to pay tithe by twisting existing scriptures or by making you think that God wants you to do it without even reading it in your bible.  The latter is what the ntcc specializes in.  They manipulate you in your heart and mind in a way that makes it easy for you to believe that God requires something of you that is not in His word.  The following is a list of things that the ntcc will say to persuade you that tithe is a practice that God requires:

1.  While you were a sinner, you gave 100% of your money to the devil; why is it so hard to give 10% to God?

2.  God lets you keep 90%; so why is it so hard to give God His 10%?

3.  All Christians "pay" tithes and give in offerings.

4.  If you pay your tithe God will recognize this as faith; and one day you will be blessed like the rich ministers in the world that have a lot of nice things.

5.  If you don't pay your tithe, you are robbing God.  If you do pay your tithe God will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing you can not contain.  (In order for this Old Testament scripture to work in your life you would have to pay your tithe in Israel to the tribe of Levi which no longer practices or keeps the entire Old Testament law even though the majority have rejected Jesus and do not believe in the New Testament).

In the ntcc, you are a Brother if You pay Tithe, and a God Robber if you Don't.  Your Eternal Destination Hinges on Who gets to Spend Your Money.
I could probably add about 15 other false teachings that the ntcc employs regarding tithe.  Vic once said:  "No matter what kind of scriptural gymnastics are employed, they can never make the bible say what it doesn't." He wrote this as part of a comment in response to a blog post that Greg did on tithe. Recently they put this blog post on their home page.  Click here for link to Deb and Greg's blog.  After reading it, I was inspired to do another blog post on tithe.  Tithe is the most obvious and blatant false teaching that the ntcc utilizes.  The leaders of ntcc inc. use tithe to live the lives of rich tycoons while the true ministry is neglected.   I'm sure the average ntcc member wonders why we don't ever stop talking about tithe.  Tithe is the single most gigantic, colossal, enormous and gargantuan stretch of doctrine that the ntcc leadership uses to accumulate their exorbitant wealth and luxurious lifestyle. What Greg did such a good job breaking down was how non-scriptural the ntcc's stand is on this topic.  The ntcc uses a few scriptures in their bylaws to back their teachings on tithe; but not one of their references insinuates that tithe was somehow carried forward into the New Testament.

This is How the New Testament Actually Describes Giving
The New Testament is a new covenant that God made with all of the people on the face of the earth to include the Jews.  The New Testament replaced the Old Testament.  Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament Law and made a new covenant.  Col. 2:14  "Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross".  Are you bible believers listening?  The Law was not completely abolished until Jesus died and rose again. That would be the book of Acts through Revelation.  The first four Gospels pretty much took place under the law.  The only other book in the New Testament that mentions tithe is Hebrews, which was written to whom?  To the Jews.  It spoke of tithe being offered freely as a one time gift by Abraham and only pertained to the spoils of war in one battle which was given to Melchisedec.  Remember that the Jews were the only ones that didn't believe Jesus died for them.  Only the disciples and a small percentage of the Jews actually believed in Christ as their savior the way that the New Testament taught them to.  Most of the Jews tried to continue in the laws and the ordinances of Moses while the author of Hebrews continually attempted to teach them that the the Old Testament was replaced by the New.  The old Tabernacle was replaced by one that was made without hands.  The high priest was no longer Caiaphas, who urged the people to crucify Jesus, but the high priest of our profession is now Jesus.  Jas. 2:10 "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."  This is confirmation that if you keep the Old Testament law yet offend in one point you are guilty of all.  The New Testament no longer requires you to keep the Old Testament sacraments or ordinances.  You no longer have to offer animal sacrifices.  You no longer have to be circumcised; and you no longer have to pay tithe.

Tithe or Hell Preaching Enables the ntcc to Accumulate Wealth Like this Religious Huckster who Told His Congregation they were God Robbers.
If your church preaches or teaches tithe or hell like the ntcc does, you are being taught false doctrine; and if you claim to be a bible believer you are not reading or taking heed to what the scriptures actually say.   Does anyone understand the term "cult jargon"?  Cult jargon is words, terms or phrases that a cult uses to persuade people to practice their doctrine.  Have you ever noticed that in the ntcc, and even on the blogs most of the time we all use the phrase, "pay tithe".  I've been trying to use the phrase "give tithes" more often because on many occasions in the bible it talks about giving tithe and not paying tithe.  In the Old Testament they were commanded to ''bring their tithe".  The words "pay tithe" or "pay tithes" are only found once in the entire bible and that is when Jesus is jacking up the Pharisees for being hypocrites and 'paying tithe' on their little herb gardens which consisted of mint, anise and cummin.  Mat. 23:23 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone."  So you see, the Pharisees originally  'paid tithe'  and Jesus rebuked them for their hypocrisy.  The ntcc uses this same phrase, 'pay tithe' to make it's followers think that they owe God money.  Mal. 3:8  "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings."  This is again, Old Testament scripture.  Tithe was paid in Agricultural goods by people who owned land and had crops to provide for the house of Levi who had no inheritance.  Tithe was part of the Old Testament Law that only fits in with the rest of the Old Testament ordinances which pertain to the Old Testament Tabernacle.  The only reason that groups like the ntcc carry tithe forward into the New Testament is so that they can be professional hucksters and become leaches on the body of Christ. They are nothing more than parasites that can't survive on their own and have fulfilled themselves with treasures and things that can only be purchased with filthy lucre.  There is no account of Jesus ever asking for money, tithe or offerings for himself in the bible.  If you believe in tithe or hell then you also must believe that Paul sent the entire church to hell because he got a job so that he would not be a burden to the churches.  The offerings he did take up were for the poor saints and he did teach that a laborer is worthy of his hire.  It is okay to give to the ministry but nowhere do you find New Testament teachers exacting ten percent cash as a requirement to be paid every payday before taxes with an ultimatum of hell.

My NTCC:  Another ntcc Tithe Preaching Huckster Jacks up his Helper for Singing a hymn that Contradicts His False Tithe Doctrine
Another ntcc Tithe Preaching Huckster Jacks up his Helper for Singing a hymn that Contradicts His False Tithe Doctrine

We have covered this subject over and over because it is the most abused doctrine in the ntcc and in a large part of the church world.  Kekel, no doubt, doesn't want you to know the truth about tithe; and I'm sure he will try to put in place some measures to control the damage that this does to his bottom line. Every time we hammer on tithe people wake up.  The thing is that people do actually believe the bible; but this topic has been misrepresented and twisted by the ntcc over the years.  I challenge all those that claim to be bible believing Christians to consider this scripture:  John 16:13  "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:"  Read this blog post and take a close look at what the scripture says.  I believe that you will be guided to the truth regardless of what we say or what the ntcc says.  Read it and believe it for yourselves.  Don't place yourself under parts of the Old Testament law just because some ntcc jerk wants more money and a so-called 'full time ministry'; but let's be honest.  Most ntcc so-called full-time ministers are not serving anyone but themselves.  They don't need to go full-time so they can serve more people via good works.  They just want to go full-time so they don't have to work on a job.  The Bible teaches us to provide for our own first.  Don't be worse than an infidel that does not provide for his own family. 1Ti 5:8 KJV - But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.  It's all so simple.  Either believe or don't believe; but at least do your homework first.

My NTCC:  Your Tithe Dollars Hard at Work will Buy Your ntcc Leadership a Nice Traveling Cathedral-To-Self-Wealth Like This!  An unnecessary monument to pride!
Your Tithe Dollars Hard at Work will
Buy Your ntcc Leadership a Nice
Traveling Cathedral-To-Self-Wealth Like This!

In closing we recently spoke with a relative of a Board Member who has left the ntcc and told us that without a doubt the Recreational Vehicle that Davis used to drive cost one Million Dollars.  This person was related to the Board Member that got to drive this same Recreational Vehicle that Davis purchased after he was no longer able or willing to drive it.  They stated that they knew for a fact without any doubt that this Recreational Vehicle was a custom made Vehicle with Marble and Granite interior, 3 sliders, A King sized bed and two TVs.  We know that Prevost custom makes these same type of Recreational Vehicles or 'Tour Buses' and they cost anywhere from $750,000 to 2 million and up.  We figured out that it would take 400 tithe payers one year's worth of tithe with an annual salary of $25,000.00 to pay for one Recreational Vehicle that Davis owned.  Just think of how many souls were sacrificed to pay for that unnecessary monument to pride!  How many people had to budget their money and eat cheap groceries and sacrifice the futures of their own families so Davis could gallivant across the country on all expense paid vacations that costed even more tithe payers more money and sacrifice. It's pretty sick when you think that this kind of money was accumulated by the ntcc preaching a false tithe doctrine and scaring people into thinking that they would spend eternity in the lake of fire if they didn't pay their tithe.  We implore you to read your bibles and stop enabling these ntcc false prophets.

My NTCC:  Complete with its second T.V., A Good Recreational Vehicle Should Always come with the Essentials that Us Tithe Payers Will Never Enjoy, Until We Wise Up and Stop Enabling These Crooked God Robbers who call themselves ministers!
A Good Recreational Vehicle Should
Always come with the Essentials that
Us Tithe Payers Will Never Enjoy,
Until We Wise Up!

We have not personally seen inside Davis's custom Recreational Vehicle but have found some pictures of other Million Dollar RV's that might give you a clue to where your tithe dollars actually go.  What?  You thought all your tithe was going to the work of the Lord?  Puh-leez!  Why do you think the ntcc ministers never want to give full financial disclosure?  Do you think you would be shocked to learn how much money and real estate the ntcc owns?  Do you wonder where your money goes when you see a million dollar R.V. and learn that ntcc missionaries have slept on the floor because they could not afford to buy a bed?  Please think about this.  Where does the offering money go from those monthly "fellowship meetings"?  In the past ntcc tried to claim that the money, sent to Graham, WA, was used to help start new works.  Yet we have never heard from a single pioneer minister that has received help from the ntcc to start a work.  Hmn. Where did that "fellowship meeting" money go, into another R.V.?

My NTCC: This posh R.V. interior evokes images of a casino; for all you know that could be where your ntcc overseer was visiting. Doesn't it Make you mad that you were Played for a Fool and Manipulated to give Thousands of Dollars in Tithe so that Davis and Others could Live in this Kind of Luxury with no accountability?
