TODAY’S BLOG ENTRY - © - November 16, 2019

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways

      Straight up: "You can't sing in the choir, teach a class or be a deacon if you don't tithe."  That’s what my Pastor told me.

      As a new convert, wanting to please my Lord and my Pastor, the only appropriate question was "Is the tithe on the gross or on the net?"  

      That the tither was a better Christian than those who did not tithe was never in question: that was a given.

      Back in those days there was a bumper sticker that said "If you love Jesus, Honk your horn" which was followed closely by another bumper sticker which said "If you love Jesus, don't honk your horn: Tithe!"

      Putting saved people under the weak and beggarly elements of the law program fills the pews with double-minded people, but the churches bills get paid

     On top of that, requiring people saved by grace tithe as a requirement for serving as a singer, teacher or deacon denied the doctrinal truth that saved people are complete in Christ.

      But it gets worse, and it has nothing to do with money.

     Teaching people to tithe makes a sham of Calvary's cross, and here's why:

     Galatians 3:13  Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

      Yet every tither is threatened with the very curse for which Christ died:

 Malachi 3:8-9  Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

      And that, dear friends, is how the pulpit teaches the pew to be double-minded and unstable.

Pastor McLean,

      I want to thank you for your very informative commentary on John's Revelation and also for making it available to us free on your website.      You explanation of different 'tellings' clears up so much confusion and fixes the time-line problem. You also avoided private interpretation, which I have learned to appreciate.

     While I have your attention let me also say that you have quite a sense of humor and I've had to write down some of your McNuuggetts. They are a hoot, as you might say. I'm reading With A Bible and its also a hoot.  Keep it up.

      Thank you, but I’m told no one says “What a hoot” anymore…

1 Timothy 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Ephesians 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery

Today's McNuggett: Godliness is not simply about behavior: godliness in the mature saint is identified by discernment and doctrine.

  It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is written, but of whom,y with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circmstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after. Coverdale
