For Christians only: Do you believe you should give 10% of your income to church?


Many churches today ask their members to "tithe" ten percent of their salary. They believe that it was a commandment from the book of Malachi and those who do not give ten percent of their income will be cursed or not be blessed. What do you think?

    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 for the very late reply! Thank you!

    Very interesting! I do not know much about tithing. All I know is "everyone" (Jews or Gentiles) were commanded to tithe by Jesus. I need to read about it more. I agree with you that we are His stewards and should obey God. Thank you for your reply!
