I have NEVER heard ANY preacher preach about, talk about or in any wise teach about “TITHE FOR THE POOR” “At the end of every three years you are to take all the tithe of your produce from that year and store it in your towns. Then the Levi, because he has no share or inheritance like yours, along with the foreigners, the orphan and the widow living in your towns, will come, eat and be satisfied — so that Adonai your God will bless you in everything your hands produce. ~ Deuteronomy 14:28-29.
Me having a mother as a pastor and being surrounded with the religious community my entire life already know the excuses that most church leaders will give for not teaching about the TITHE FOR THE POOR, they will say “God was talking to the Jews” well, God was talking to the Jews concerning ALL TITHING!!!!! But since the Levites [who were Jews who were chosen by God to keep the temple] no longer exist, the Jews currently dont give tithes. The Gentile Christian
fraudsters leaders have manipulated the minds of religious people to believe that they can win favor from God and ward off curses by giving 10% of their income [tithes] to their pastors. But, in reality according to the Bible, only the Levites were required to pay tithes [to bring the tithe of tithes into the storehouse which wasn’t money, it was food! Deut 14:22-29] Nehemiah 10:38. In reality, it is the duty of THE PASTORS (since they claim to be the Levites) NOT THE CONGREGATION to bring the tithes into the storehouse to benefit the poor . Nehemiah 13:5.
