    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.

    The idea that there is no repentance of sin in salvation is because of their misunderstanding of Jonah 3: 10 which states: And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not. (Jonah 3:10 KJV) Anderson and Jimenez interpreted this to mean that repentance is a work. This is the only verse they have to support that repentance is a work. However the passage does not say that repentance is a work. In Matthew 21:28-29 it says: But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. (Matthew 21:28-29 KJV) The word, repented is not the action word "went". Where did he go? He went to work in the field. When he went to work in the field of his father, that is the work, but the word repented is not the work. It means a change of mind, since he did not obey his father but later on he changed his mind, decided to obey. The question, is it possible for the father to know and see that his first son is working in the field? Yes, because he went to work. Now if we make the same statement similar to Jonah 3: 10, because the problem of Anderson and Jimenez is their understanding of the verse, and it is about English grammar. So if there is a similar statement based on the true story of Matthew 21:28-29, and if you know the story how do you think you would understand the passage? If I make a statement like this similar to Jonah 3: 10: "And the father saw his son's work that he repented from disobedience" how would the readers understand it? Does it mean that the elder brother worked in order to repent or does it mean that he repented that is why he worked? Does it mean that the father saw that repentance is a work or he saw his son's work because he repented? The statement in Jonah 3: 10 is this, "And God saw their works, THAT they turned from their evil way..." The problem is because of their misunderstanding of the word "THAT". The Hebrew word of THAT is "Ki" and that can mean "for", "when", or "because". The Hebrew word "KI" was translated "for" 2373 times in the kjv Bible. It was translated "because" 477 times. It was translated "in that" 3 times. It was translated "when" 216 times. An example is in Genesis 26:20, the Hebrew word "ki" was translated as "because": And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him. (Genesis 26:20 KJV) There seems to be a similar statement since "called" is past tense just like "saw" in Jonah 3:10 and "strove" is also past tense. The word "because" is the english transliteration of the hebrew word "ki" which is the same Hebrew word used in Jonah 3: 10 translated as "that". So if you would understand the word "that" to mean because of based on the Hebrew word, then you will not think that it is saying that their works is the repentance of sins. Rather you would think that the work is the result of their repentance of sin. Just like in Genesis, they did not call the well as Esek in order for them to strive for it. Rather they strove with him first and that is the reason why they call it Esek. In Jonah 3: 10 God saw their works because they repented of their sins. If their repentance and faith is not real, then they would have nothing to show according to James 2:18. Work is the manifestation of repentance and faith. The putting of sackloth is the manifestation that they already repented and believed in Jonah 3: 5. Just like in the case of Abraham, in Genesis 22: 12: The Lord through the angel said: "Now I know..." because of his work. God does not want us to have a kind of faith that is dead faith, rather God wants us to have living faith , or true faith that produces works. See James 2.

    Can you please show some respect for our beliefs already? You are a guest on this site. You aren’t required to agree with it (Re KJV), but you could be a bit more polite and stop throwing your “KJV myth” comments everywhere you possibly can.
