The Bible is Not a History Book

YES, THERE IS history in the Bible, but the Bible is not a history book.

What’s the point?

Well, pro-tithers don’t always look at the biblical tithe within a historical context.  They rely only on what the Bible says or doesn’t say.

For instance…

They argue tithing stayed on after the Law of Moses.  Their proof…

The Apostles don’t say tithing was abolished.

They are correct in that the Bible doesn’t specifically say tithing was abolished.  However, the same Bible doesn’t SAY the Apostles practiced tithing either.

You can’t base your whole argument on the fact that something WASN’T mentioned in the Bible.

So where do we go from here?

History.

The Bible does not give us the whole history of Judaism or Christianity.  It would take far more than 66 books to do that.  The Bible gives us, if you will, snap shots of these two religions.

If you want a broader understanding of tithing, then you must be aware of the historical facts related to the tithe…facts that are not included in the Bible.

Tune into The Tithing Hoax Podcast…

I share with you Jewish and Christian historical facts that prove tithing was not a part of the New Testament Church.

Let’s talk about what the church doesn’t want you to talk about.
