What is the difference between a pledge and a tithe?
I believe that one pledges to an organization and a tithe is to God. I ancient times the the tithe that went to the temple was supposed to take care of the needs of the widows and ophans, the sick and the needy, as well as pay for the operation of the temple. Today our churches and our governments can't or won't do it all so part of our tithe must go to those who are willing to fill in the cracks. That is why part of you tithe can go to help Katrina victums rebuild their homes or to the Red Cross.
a pledge is done willingly , it is a choice but a tithe is a must a commandment from God. Mal 3:10 Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house. And test Me now with this, says Jehovah of Hosts, to see if I will not open the windows of Heaven for you, and pour out a blessing for you, until there is not enough room.
My short answer is that the TITHE is a tenth part. Giving 5%, or 11%, is NOT a tithe.
A pledge can be any amount that you purpose to give. You could PLEDGE to tithe, or you could tithe, AND make a pledge (of any amount or %-age).
A tithe is 10% of your income, and a pledge is any amount you choose.
A pledge can be an amount that was promised for a one time thing or payments over a given set of time. Tithe is holy and given unto God. It is a means of honoring Him with all of your increase. It is a tenth of all of your income so that you and your home is continually blessed.
A tithe is 10% of your earnings and a pledge--I think maybe an offering (I've never heard of a pledge) is what you give above and beyond your tithe.
You seem to have explained it even without wanting too in your first para BDDonovan. A plege is an agreement. A gentleman's agreement if you like. Tithe is what is actually given. Pledge is 'promise' tithe is 'actual'. Hope this helps.

Can you tell the difference between a real cowboy and a wanna be cowboy? If so tell me how.Is it when their boots cost more than their trucks or what's under them boots that counts? Could it be in the way they walk from all the horse riding or the way they shape their hat? What do you think?
