#2 in Support of the Tithe
promotion of the tithe, the Law is said to have nothing to do with
the church age tithe. According to these individuals the tithe was
given before the Law and can be shown to exist after the Law (i.e.
for the New Testament church).
the giving of tithes is a clear feature of the Old Testament and the
Law, the principle of giving tithes does not originate with Moses,
who ratified the Old Covenant and gave the Law, but from a far
earlier time. (Pastor Simon, Cheltenham, UK, http://www.teachingpages.co.uk/home.html)
tithe is "outside" or "before" the Law and still
in effect after the Law, it is necessary to show...
the tithe was commanded as something for everyone before the Law. In
other words, do any of the pre-law examples of tenth giving refer to
tithing in any ecclesiastical sense?
the tithe is still in effect in the church age (New Covenant). Saying
that the tithe is talked about in a New Testament passage, or using a
New Testament reference, does not necessarily prove this unless there
is proper context.
