God has been blessing me lately and I am now thinking of giving out some extra money to help other people around me. I am trying to understand the concept of tithing and why I MUST pay it to the church? Does it make a difference if I decide to use my tithe to help those in need?

Malachi 3:10 - Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that [there shall] not [be room] enough [to receive it].

The Bible say bring tithe  to Church not to the poor.Helping the poor is different from tithing

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
May God Bless You My Brother

Go use your money in helping the destitutes. the orphans , widows, people that life isnt smiling at all,sick people that cant even afford or attempt going for medicals,, regardless of their tribe, creed, religion and colour,, dont make that pastor (guy man) that is already getting fat and siphoning the church  money richer,, and you leave the rest to God on judgement day,
