I believe the same thing. What's not clear to me is it 10% of your gross or net income. Some people say it is better if we give 10% of the former because this way, we are not just giving 'left overs' to God.

sorry that is what the churches of men teach but it is unscriptural. Christians do not pay a tithe. anyone other than a Levite receiveing one is stealing from God. see Numbers 18. tithe was part of law Jesus completed/finished not for Christians
