Jonathon Kithcart's treatise on the subject ofthe appropriateness of demanding a tithe of the modern Christian church was well thought out and presented in a convincing manner. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the truth concerning this widely misunderstood doctrine.<br /><br />There is one critical point to all of this, however, that most students of the Word miss altogether. Jesus said that the Lawand the Prophets were in effect until John the Baptist came: Luke 16:16. Paul declared that if you become circumcised in the flesh (in order to fulfill the OT requirement for faith in God) Christ shall be of no profit, and that man becomes obligated to fulfill every single aspect of the Law & the Prophets.He then says "ye have fallen from grace". We find this in Gal.5:2-5. This is God's Word, not my opinion. Are Christian pastors today jeopardizing the salvation of the very souls they have been given to nurture, teach and guide, by encouraging them to be "entangled again with the yoke of bondage"? God's Word speaks for itself. Read Acts ch.15 and see that only four things were required of the Gentile believers. Thank you, Mr. Kithcart for your excellent book. Every seminary should require its students to read it. LOL
I found this book to be very factual and enlightening through the use of God's Word. The author also gives his own personal experience in this writing. I would recommend it if you are truly trying to find the real truth about what the scriptures say about tithing in the New Testament.
