Its a big sin not to pay tithe,apart from the fact that it is a sin, things becomes tight for a man who do not pay tithe secondly No matter how much favour you get from people and money you make it will not be useful. so my brother when you pay part of your tithe without paying all you have only sowed a seed,tithe must be complete as it shows how much love you have for yourself and God. pls take it serious.

Definitely Not a SIN!
Malachi 3 never said we will not go to Heaven if we fail to pay our tithe!! Though we are called robbers when we pay not our tithe!!
However, you harm yourself more if you pay not as your storehouse will be empty!
Payment is a proof that we qualify to reeive from God with His windows in heaven opened to tithers.

The benchmark for making Heaven is not in the THINGS YOU DO OR DON'T DO.
Only Grace can make us gain entrance into Heaven.That doesn't mean we don't have to do some work
to gain favour from God. The Bible says...Obedience is better than Sacrifice. If God says..'Pay Your tithe''....then Pay, else, You've disobeyed and it's a sin.

It is a sin not to pay tithe. Tithe is a commandment from God so every christian is expected to pay tithe.
the breathe we breathe, we are not paying for it, the only thing that God demanded for us is to pay our tithe, God does not need our money, the tithe is to be used to keep the house of God in order.

So my brother, if you are not paying tithe, know that you are disobeying God.

please set aside your tithe as God admonished, but the heart of God is beyond houses made of concrete and religious doctrines. 
    i think the bible called people (especially christians) the temple of God. ie -God's house. the bbibe also says if you do it to the least of my children you do it to me. the bible also says leave your gift their at the altar and first go and reconcile with your brother.i say all these because so many people self righteously and laziliy (if u would permit the word)pay tithe to churches, but they have never been to an orphanage or the prisons or hospitals on behalf of others people's pain or extend means to a suffering neighbor (and u know who a neighbor is from the samaritan story).and every day we hear these churches buy another jet, build Universities that are not for brethens of the same church but for children of the rich. the heart of God is beyond houses made of concrete and religious doctrines.

In my opinion, the bible instructs us to pay one-tenth of our increase, whether you are working or not. If u ain't working and some1 gives u money, u ought 2 pay tithe from it cos it is an increase 2 u. Let's know by God all things consist and without him was nothing made that was made, so God wanting us to pay tithe is just to test our FAITHFULNESS in giving back 2 him.

So, be it money or farm produce or whatever that you receive, in anyway you can calculate 10% out of it, do so in all honesty cos we can only fool ourselves and never God. Take such to the house of God as our tithe becos somebody needs it in the church or in the society. We should never be concerned about who eats the tithe becos someone will definately eat it, but only believe God for His promises concernin tithers that He will open His windows of Heaven and pour you out a blessing .....

Remember, He that is faithful in little will also be faithful in much; so if we truly say we are xtians, let's truly believe and follow the bible which is our standard.... Pay ur tithes ooooo

.......Rankie

Ps 14:1 Says it is only a fool that says that there is no God, and I believe that we should be wise children of God. Tithe paying is a commandment from God - Mal 3:10. I also believe that to be on the safe side, we need to obey God. Aside from that, when we pay our tithes God rebukes anything that represents  devourer(s) in our life. Your tithe should be paid to your local church where you are nourished spiritually. Your tithe  should not be mistaken for alms -giving or money for the needy. These are separate issues. It is very good to reach out to the less priviledged, infact God commands that also, but our tithe should not take the place of this philantrophy.

The truth of the matter is tithe is not compulsory.giving to the needy is more weightier and important than that.the opne that supercedes all is LOVE.Love covers all things.Abeg make we LOVE ourselves before anything,or what good will it do to pay your tithe and yet harbour animosity against your fellow man?fa-fa-fa foul................A word is eno4 for the wise.

 i feel that people have the wrong reasons for tithing. People feel that in order for tithing to be effective, they want to be blessed financially. They feel that you will only be blessed financially if you tithe, but according to my knowledge tithing is not for that purpose. First of all, tithing is discipline. God commanded us to do this, and besides you will be blessed in other areas, not just a financial blessing.



Tithes is paid to God not man. Man is the receiver on the behalf of God so that we will have a place to worship

As a christain one should knw wht tithe is all about,it is a one tenth of your income,if you want to be sure get your bible and go through the book of malachi and see what the bible says about paying your tithe.Dont be decieved God is not moked,therefore whatever you sow,you shall reap. God specify it in malachi 3:8-10,when he said bring ye all the tithe into his store house,he even went futrher to say when we pay our tithe he will rebuke the devoure for our sake,friend dont be decieve,tithe paying is important and real.thank you.
