Will You Rob God Dear Pastor?

Malichi 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.

[Edit]

I came across an old thread on tithing and a powerful reality check on this verse that is often used by clergymen to rob laity men.  Dear pastor, when you teach “tithing” to the poor widow on welfare, to the poor family where the dad works two jobs to make ends meet, you are robbing God.  When you teach that they are accursed by God unless they pay to maintain your extra biblical position and religious system you are robbing the Lord Himself.  Many can see this, except those who have been frightened by your nicolatian powers, are held by empty religious tradition, or enticed that God would give them more back in return if they tithed.  You are taking that which God has already provided to them, and to further your own personal agenda.  You do it through religious  manipulation because the Holy Spirit will not assist you, nor bear witness in your deeds.

If you currently teach a fear or guilt based tithing message to the saints I would call you to repent in sackcloth and take a stand for the Lord even if it means you will be fired from your paid position and become the dad from the poor family working two jobs to make ends meet.  Perhaps though God will show you more mercy then you have shown His sheep? [edit]

I’ll close with a quote from the thread I was reading:

Without a professional clergy, the soul of the clergy/laity system would dry up. The professional clergy lives on the back of the Church, which is supported by the tithe… The tithe supports their power, which in turn, separates the Church, and in the end, destroys Her…for she is spoon fed, never growing, being subdued by men who dominate Her, rather than the Lord Jesus Alone. .

    Very good, exactly.

    AND when they desire to get hold of people’s money they are also robbing God of glory, bringing shame on Jesus name.

    Pastors who wrongly teach/mishandle the Word rob God of His glory while they are robbing the people of their time, talents and true treasure, which is the Truth.

    How can God be glorified by a mishandling of His Word?

    Love your site btw!!

      You hit the nail on the head there, Laura.

      That’s EXACTLY the issue at stake : the glory of God being robbed. Dishonoring Him.

      But the pragmatic people can no longer think in terms of glory and honor, only what is good for them.

    Want to really make them squirm? Have them address Deut. 14:22-29 as to who and what the tithe is for.
    Then ask them WHAT Abraham tithed from after bailing out Lot. Wasn’t his money…hmmm!
    Next ask them to address the word “covering” from the NT and hold them to the only mention…a woman’s head. “Well if we need to “tithe” preacher how come your wife don’t wear no “headgear?”
    Preacher, why do you elevate your traditions above the Word of God, such that you make the Word of no effect?
    It was the rightious man in the wilderness that rescued the man with one foot in the world (of men/Sodom…ie Lot), just like in the world today(of men/”church”…ie carnal “christians”). Yet they both want nothing to do with going out to the wilderness, rather they pine for another man made city/sanctuary/”church”…and don’t they always look back those double minded women/tare/goat/harlot, and get turned to worthless sand.
