Tithes and Offerings

“…you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.”

Matt 23:23 





Offering is Not an Element of Public Worship




Binnie, William – Giving to the Lord  1882, p. 94, three pages, from his The Church




“And Jesus sat over against the treasury… and there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites…  And He called unto Him his disciples, and saith unto them, ‘Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury.'”

Mk. 12:41-43

“We can almost think she cast in those two mites into the treasury with a sigh that the offering was so small.”

John ‘Rabbi’ Duncan
