10% on income after tax. And 10% on the tax return

It’s definitely a sacrifice, but that’s the whole point

10% of my take home pay (so after tax and 401k). I interpret tithing as a range of charitable donations, so not all 10% goes directly to my church

I do net and feel no guilt. And I know I have the Holy Spirit. Moreover, God’s been teaching me lately He’s more interested in my moral integrity than any offering. Isaiah 1:11-20.

Also, “tithing” is old covenant. Nowhere in the New Testament. Christians are under no “tithe” making the gross or net question irrelevant.

Let’s place Isiah 1 in proper context: it’s not saying God is rejecting tithes, offerings, and sacrifices. That’s a word to the Israelites who were following the ritual laws but rejecting the moral law - while totally missing the point of each.

To claim this relieves a Christian of making a title or offering seems to misread what’s going on in that Scripture.

As for moral integrity - I have none. Thankfully Jesus has more than enough and when God looks at me, He sees a small seed of faith in Jesus and his righteousness and counts that as if I were righteous.

Any God willing to do that for me can have what He wants as far as my temporal things go.

Common interpretation is that you're supposed to give offering on your gross pay

10% is a law, God doesn’t care for the 10%, he wants us to not care about money and trust him, daily. Checking a box saying I give 10% isn’t love for God, it isn’t trust. Challenge yourselves, how much higher could you give until it hurt a little? Maybe a little less Starbucks and eating out. How much more to give to challenge your retirement goals (WHAT? trust God with my future?!)

This is so good. It’s about our hearts posture in giving. We should give with a cheerful heart. After all, we are only stewards over what he has provided

I tithe in every dollar I take in—net income. Tax return, bonus, weird refunds from utilities. 10%

Additional Posts in Christian consultants

Does it ever make you wonder why we have so many man made sects/denominations of christianity?

They are all denominations of sects that started with a man/woman disagreeing with an original church (e.g whether it be Catholic or Orthodox).

I mean we have Jehovahs witness, baptist, Anabaptist, Evangelical, independent, pentecostal, lutheran and the list goes on and on and on.

Its either God says only one is right and the rest were teaching false religions or we all go to heaven.
