Is Tithing Biblical?

I gave my life to Christ on September 12, 1976 when I was 17 years old. I didn’t tithe right away, but began to tithe when I was 19 years old. The thought of not tithing has not entered my mind since then. It has been one of my Christian disciplines, just like reading the […]

The Big Lie Evangelicals Tell Christian Parents
