IN MY OWN OPINION , IF THE CHURCH IS IN NEED, I MEAN CHURCH THAT IS GROWING TITHE THERE, BUT IF IT IS CHURCH WHERE PASTOR HAS SERIES CARS, EVEN PRIVATE JET, MY BROTHER, GIVE TO THE POOR.

mahn! help those in needs with your tithes, it's biblical ,you tithes ain't even meant for pastors , it's meant for the widows,orphanages and the Levites but the levites are in the past and these livetes are people who serve God but have not personal belongings , the offering is enough the pastors (inbox me if you need biblical references) imagine the joy u will brought into that old widow in ur community if u can help her raise a shelter to cover her head with ur tithe and imagine the happiness u will give to the hopeless orphans hawking in the streets and roads of our country by send them to school with ur tithes, tithes ain't meant for pastor, Jesus Christ never collect tithes even though as a preacher nor did any of his disciple collect tithes when their became apostles

My guy your are talking rot. Tithes and offerings are paid in the church and nowhere else. It's not my business if the pastor uses it to enrich himself or his family members but the biblical injunction is that the tithe must be paid in your local church.

To this topic, alms are given to beggars and the like but your tithe must be paid in the church. If you understand the concept of tithing you'll understand that it's for your good. if you want to help others, then you go ahead and help them but please don't tag tithe.

Deuteronomy 14:22-29
New International Version (NIV)

Tithes
22 Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year. 23 Eat the tithe of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of the Lord your God at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name, so that you may learn to revere the Lord your God always. 24 But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by the Lord your God and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where the Lord will choose to put his Name is so far away), 25 then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place the Lord your God will choose. 26 Use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink, or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice. 27 And do not neglect the Levites living in your towns, for they have no allotment or inheritance of their own.
28 At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year’s produce and store it in your towns, 29 so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.

The bible asked pple to pay tithe to assist the levites or priest or pastors as you may call them bcos they have no inheritance in the old testament.Do nowadays pastors fit that category?Ask yourself.We chose to pick the laws to obey  and drop which does not suits us.Make them ie pastors richer while the poor are there.Have you studied the early chuch christians life.
Let me brief you ,the rich brought what they had so the the poor will not be poor nor the rich richer.Difficult isn't it.Any record of tithers in the early church.No.In short help the poor and you are sowing on fertile land.
We have stuffed our head with stuffs and we are not ready to change.Bible says knowledge will increase on the last days.where is the knowledge when we shut our eyes to the simple truth.If you really want  the truth,let me know and I will give you scriptures

Issue of TITHING is standard in the bible, you are suppose to pay your tithe in the church, while helping the needy is also scriptural.
