Yes, we should give everything to Him; however, it does not have to be money. Perhaps it should begin with your heart, continue with your time and talent; all of it. "Render until Ceasar what is his..."
Ok, but I am asking about the giving of tithes, which pertains to a part of your income
I understand that; I truly believe He values your heart, time and talent more than tithes...
But money is from God so it is a must to give back?
It is not supported anywhere in His writings...
It is absolutely OK not to tithe and you are at liberty to tell anyone who says you must where to go.
The Christian tithe is unbiblical.
It was invented by the Catholic Church in the 8th century.
The tithe came under the Mosaic law with strict definitions and no Christian is authorised to change the Law.
The tithe could only be collected by levites, there are no levites today so today nobody is authorised to collect a tithe.
Only land owner farmers tithed. Other professions were exempt from tithing. Fishermen did not tithe fish nor basket weavers tithe baskets.
The tithe was strictly only land produce and tithing money was explicitly forbidden.
Thus the Christian tithe is nothing but a con designed to relieve you of your hard earned money that is better served by supporting your family and your needs. The tithe today is extracted by lies, fear mongering and distortions of the bible. How often have you heard some church leader tell you that not to tithe is robbing God? All he wants is your money. You cannot rob God of a tithe if you are not Jewish or born after AD70 when the Jerusalem temple was destroyed. Have you also heard preachers tell you God will permit Satan to steal from you if you don't tithe and thus make God of to be a mafia godfather running a protection racket?
If you wish to donate towards the upkeep of your church that is up to you but the size of your donation is entirely voluntary.

So often in order to feel comfortable in church (without being harassed) many members feel they are obligated to give money to the church! Many times clergy preach a forceful sermon concerning tithing when the bills are...
