for sure,not paying of tithe to the church in christian faith is a sin.
for you to be achristian means you are ready to observe the rules
of the kingdom of God,in which pay of tithe is one.

In the book of Mal.3 from vas. 8 start by commanding us not to rob God, therefore the the nurber one answer to to the question is YES, is a sin.
for the bible say in the book of Exe. 20 Vs 8; says you should not still, now you get to find out that robbry is the art of stilling, so not paying of tithe is obsolutly sin.

The issue is whether it is mandatory to pay ur tithe to a church. Tithing is a part of the old testament laws, all of which have been fulfilled by the birth, live and death of Jesus Christ. So, like all other old testament laws, merely a shadow of the Christly expectations.

The new testament did not preach tithe. Jesus categorically termed tithing as a lesser law ( See Matt 23:23) However, scipture encourages voluntary giving and not mandatory giving - "God loves a cheerful giver".

So, if u cannot pay 10% of your net earnings to a church very cheerfully but can do that very cheerfully to orphanages/old peoples home or the physically challenged, then u have also paid ur tithe. Hence, any voluntary philanthrophic act done from ur net income amounting to 10% with no anticipation for a human reward, amounts to a tithe. And for me it could be to a church, orphanage /people's home, prisons, even individuals including but not limited to Pastors, priest, handicapped/physically challenged.

I think it is definately not a sin if u dont pay tithe, Malachi is only a passage in the old testament of the bible that most of our prosperity preaching pastors use to decieve people and enrich themselves.

There is a special blessing attached to paying tithe. God himself asked you to pay your tithe and prove him if he will not open up the windows of heaven and pure out blessing that you will have not enough room to keep them. Wether u like it or not, u still pay your tithe either way. To God or to the devil because unecessary bills will arise when you don't pay your tithe and you will end up spending more than the tithe money you were supposed to pay to the church. But if you pay your tithe , he will rebuke the devourer for your sake and you will not spend your money on silly things.

Friend if you believe in christ, pay your tithe and get blessed.Please be wise.

No. Have you noticed how Mal 3: 8-10 is the only scripture most people used when talking about tithe. Ask them to tell you what comes before and after it and what tithe is for. Tithe was collect in the old testament for the descendents of Levi ( the did not work and were set aside for Gods work, they had no other source of income) and for the widows and needy. In todays church there is no levi and the title is not used for the widows and needy so it doesn't have any use in todays church. Only very few churches have pastors that don't work and only very few churches also help the people in need in their congregation. They'll rather have concerts and concerts, decorate the church and pay the bills and put the rest in the bank.

That part was also part of the laws of Moses. There are over 300 laws of Moses, so why is it only the one of tithe we still obey. We don't make sacrifices, we eat 'unclean' animals, women in the period should pray and stuffs like that none is still obeyed today , only tithe, why?. After Jesus came we didn't have to live by the law any more. The New testament says if u live by the law you will be judged by the law. so we might as well start sacrificing animals for every sin we commit and obey every 300 of those laws because all of the have their curses.

They always tell you of the blessings but if you ready further down, you will see the curses of not obeying the laws. its the opposite of the blessings... very bad I don't ve my bible so look for it n read. If the curse for not paying tithe works, no unbeliever will be rich, not 1... in that same way everyone who pays tithe should have life easy for them , because the windows of heaven has be opened and.... but you know thats not the case. some tithe payers suffer, n they still pay tithe and some non tithe payers ve things going very easy for them.

Also the new testament did not emphasis on tithe, the only time it as mentioned was when Jesus was sort of criticising the scribes and Pharisees, they is no place in the new testament where it says pay tithe. The new testaments says do not live by the law, here is Jesus, he has dies so that you don't have to but for some reason some people don't want to let go of that 1 law. when Jesus dies he didn't die 10% or when God gave Jesus he didn't give 10% of him. When the new testament takes about giving its talks about giving freely, giving what ever you have. In the new testaments when people gave the money put back in the congregation, it used used to help the people that needed and so on. But in todays church even with the tithe and offerings the poor in the church are left on their on.

So if you still ant to pay tithe its ur choice but read the bible itself first and don't listen to what everyone says.

paying of tithes is not negotiable, dere"s a different between paying nd giving the sooner we understands dt d better. tithe is not 4 u, so pls dont give it 2 anybody it"s 4 God,  tithe is to be paid not given, if u dont pay ur tithe, dt means u r stealin 4rm God and we all knw wat it mean 2 steal frm God. if u must help somebody do it wit ur money not God"s money. tank u all 4 ur various contributions.

realy is not a sin,but everyone should understand that u can use what u have to getting what u dont have,i believe when u bring something in the house of the lord,in return he wıll multıply it and give unto you,so paying tithe is very good for those that want more blessing from God

Say you use the money to help someone in need - isnt it better than giving it to the church?


Well, either ways is good. because you are not giving it to the person, just for giving sake rather you are giving it to God and moreover obeying his commendment, which is to pay your 1 tenth income to his household.

Well, not that giving it to the less-priviledged person(s)/smone in need, is better...  just that it is part of faithfulness & act of giving.   Also there's a blessing for one who does that.

But, if We gonna say no to tithing... I mean bringing it 2 the Church' then, We'r not fulfilling all righteousness as the Bible teaches Us 'Malachi 3:10-11.
