I'm not apologetic on my stance on tithing. I feel God is giving you 100% of what you earn and expects only 10% back. I also feel it's a SIN not to give at least 10% of GROSS. All across the country Churches are losing members. I feel this article may offer a partial answer as to why. We as a country are so wealth our poor are considered wealthy throughout the world, yet we in the Church give so very little to alleviate suffering and spread the gospel. We will have to answer for that discrepancy one day. Make no mistake about it.
