Should Christians tithe during the corona virus? 


Published:

I believe Yes, if you are still at work and getting paid. No, if you are not working, lost your job, or getting unemployment. God does not need to test every single person for their faithfulness, especially during these trouble times.

What is your opinion?

Well, I do not believe tithing is a NT principle in the first place, but giving definitely is, so I will approach from that perspective:

As far as, should Christians keep giving? Absolutely! As we are prospered, so we ought to give to God's work. Of course, those out of work, on furloughs, laid-off, etc, well, see to your family first; many are out of work so they cannot be expected to continue. Church expenses should be a bit down for buildings, in power usage and without normal activities, but I also know utility companies and mortgage companies are being told to give breaks during this time, as well. 

This is also a good time for believers to practice helping one another, as those who are still working should help see to the needs of those members who cannot right now. This is also a basic Bible principle. Brethren in need, don't hide your needs from those who are still doing alright-we need to know your plight if we are to help. Brethren who are still working, time to put basic NT tenets to work! Don't be stingy with what God prospers you with.

Even if one holds to a "tithe principle", $0 x 10% = $0. So, at $0 you've still tithed.

Offerings and alms - there's another story. If the Lord leads - it doesn't matter what financial wisdom dictates (just like pre-COVID or mid-employment times)

This post is intended to approach from the side of any who may hold to a NT "tithe" in an effort to avoid the thread from being sidetracked into a tithe fight.

Mega churches, which I do not prefer attending, are struggling I believe. Let's change it to love offerings. Should it be the member fault, that a church income need to be 0ver 25.000 dollar a week? There are churches that care more for their own income needs, then its members needs. They are telling members to give no matter what, Is this God's plan? This does not change my open view of this post, tithe or to give love offering, same thing.

I am not always well received here, but this is okay, I know that there are prefered groups everywhere. Even in my church ... 🥺

To answer the original question of should Christians tithe during the corona virus? 

YES!!!

I understand times are tough, but even when I was unemployed, I still gave what I believe God was telling me to give. Follow God's leading, He'll never leave nor forsake you.

yes, why wouldn't you? There's always something going on in the world to make an excuse not to tithe. Obviously, if you lost your job and have no income you cannot tithe. But if you get unemployment during this period, you should be tithing off of it.

Well, technically if you do tithe whenever you do have income, and have the desire to tithe even when you do not have income, then you are still tithing... 😀

I've also always considered the tithe more than just income but rather includes all that we have been blessed with. Time, talents, treasures, and our praises, etc
