‘The Most Shocking Thing’ This Woman Found After Polling Pastors
Author, speaker and Christian advocate Autumn Miles is on a mission to reach people who have been abused, misunderstood and abandoned. Much of her work in this arena — efforts that started well before the #MeToo era took the world by storm — were sparked by her own experience as a survivor of domestic abuse.
“When I was in high school, I met my high school sweetheart,” she recently told PureFlix.com’s “Pure Talk.” “He was abusive.”
Miles, author of the upcoming book, “I Am Rahab,” explained that she ended up marrying him, but eventually took her husband’s abuse to their church. Miles feared for her safety — and her life — so she filed for divorce. Her church responded by kicking her out...read more.
Are Modern-Day Christians Commanded to Tithe 10 Percent?
Tithing is one of the most common Christian traditions. Simply defined, it is the practice of giving a portion of one’s earnings to the church in an effort to help pay for expenses and build God’s kingdom. There’s a great deal of discussion and debate surrounding the practice, with questions about the percentage required, the frequency of offerings, among other related issues.
Tithes and offerings are a Jewish construct that can be found in the Old Testament, with the law requiring that Israelites give “10 percent of the crops they grew and the livestock they raised to the tabernacle/temple,” according to GotQuestions.org.
Here are some of the tithing scriptures where such giving is commanded:
“Speak to the Levites and say to them: ‘When you receive from the Israelites the tithe I give you as your inheritance, you must present a tenth of that tithe as the Lord’s offering. Your offering will be reckoned to you as grain from the threshing floor or juice from the winepress. In this way you also will present an offering to the Lord from all the tithes you receive from the Israelites. From these tithes you must give the Lord’s portion to Aaron the priest. You must present as the Lord’s portion the best and holiest part of everything given to you.’” - Numbers 18:26-29 (NIV)...read more.
