Tithing was never money in the Bible, it was food and livestock. The idea that we are to tithe money was created by men greedy for filthy lucre to support their empires they call "Churches." A man that teaches tithing money exposes that they do not study the Bible, but they study the traditions of men and repeat them. Such men are not trustworthy in anything.
“Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always. And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee: Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose” (Deuteronomy 14:22-25)
Do you notice how the tithe was food and livestock? It was never money and if their trip was too far they were to sell the tithe for money, then when they arrived they were to buy things, NOT GIVE THE MONEY AS A TITHE! The modern idea of tithing is a fundraising scheme by the children of Baal to fund their lifestyles of not working and living off of the saints. A man telling you to tithe money has shown you they do not serve the Lord Jesus Christ, rather they serve mammon.
