If you listened to the previous episode, "Law Vs Grace," you know that the first Covenant under the Law does not apply to us in any way once we have come under a Covenant of Grace. The 10% tithe, required under the first Covanant, as with all things required by law under the first Covenant is no longer mandated under Grace. Neither are church buildings. There is no mandate for them anywhere in the New Testament after Jesus was resurrected and ascended into heaven. Then why is the 10% tithe still being prescibed? And why are church buildings central to our faith? Can a correlation be made between maintaining the practice of a 10% tithe and the necessity for building churches? If the 10% tithe is no longer required, nor are church buildings, then are we off the hook for giving anything at all. If we aren't off the hook, then what, or who, should we be giving to and why?
