Daddy Freeze schools follower who tried to establish tithing through Abraham

Another misguided fellow who cannot back up his assertions with anything better than Abraham paying tithe, which happened only once in Abraham’s entire life.

How do you base the premise of monthly tithing on an incident that occurred only once?

5 Facts you should know about Abraham.

1. Abraham was NOT a Christian! Abraham was the fore father of Islam, Judaism and Christianity so claiming he was a christian because he gave tithe once in his lifetime to Melchizedek is a false premise.

2. Abraham ‘gave’ not ‘paid’ tithe as is falsely misrepresented, from the spoils of a war, NOT FROM HIS INCOME OR PERSONAL WEALTH!
Before Abraham gave this tithe, he was blessed personally by Melchizedek and entertained with bread and wine.
* Genesis 14:18 KJV
[18] And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

3. Abraham and Lot were both very rich, so rich that the land could not accommodate their wealth, long BEFORE, NOT AFTER, ABRAHAM GAVE TITHE. So tithe didn’t bring Abraham ANY INCREASE!
Genesis 13:2,5 KJV
[2] Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. [5] Lot also, had flocks, and herds, and tents.

4. Every Muslim is also a seed of Abraham, in Islam he is known as ‘Ibrahim’ SAW. This also applies to every person in the world practicing Judaism, they are all seeds of Abraham, let’s remember the Bible said he will be the father of many nations.
*Genesis 17:5 KJV
[5] Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

5. The only people blessed by tithing are the pastors who collect it, NO ONE ELSE! Nigeria has 98million Christians, 51% of the country’s population and there are no visible blessings of tithing except to the pastors who fly private jets and live ostentatious lives. According to more people in Nigeria are getting into poverty by the minute, despite Churches in their hundreds of thousands.

If you read Mal 3:12, we are promised a Delightsome land and everyone will call us blessed, do you see any delight or blessing around you? ~FRZ

    It is funny how Christians waste time on unnecessary things just like this tithing thing, when there are more important things to be discussed, let us consider a subject like Satan how much do we know about him and his works, The Bible tells us that he came to steal kill and destroy, the question is it true and if yes, is he doing just that, so therefore what are Christians doing about it. Christians should wake up and start being serious. Every true Christian should take The bible and start reading from Genesis through Revelations they should study it, a lot of truth will be revealed to them. 1 Jn 2:27

  3. Ray Ajao says:

    He was not yet called Abraham by God , he was still a gentile Abram when he gave the tithe of 10% to Mechizedec and the remaining 90% was given back to the pagan king of Sodom and it people. He kept nothing for himself and he paid tithe once with the spoils of war and never did it again .

    There are 2 Priesthood in the Bible
    the Levitical Priesthood – old testament
    blood of goats and bulls sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean.
    the Royal Priesthood – New testament)
    the blood of Christ, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
    Jesus is our great high priest who has ascended into heaven offered a Better Sacrifice
    to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins
    Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant for the believers because when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also.
    He made us Priest and kings Rev 5:10
    Sacrifice expected Hebrews 13:15-16 worship God, giving thanks, Good works and Share/Communicate with people
    Jesus did not emphasize Tithing rather he encourage cheerful giving and the early apostle never emphasize it but giving offerings to ministerial work. why the compulsion giving rather than the cheerful giving recommended by new testament
    A Christian cannot be under a curse for not tithing or under closed heaven

  5. Samuel Okafor says:

    Pastor Jones jailed for telling members to tithe 10% of their incomes.

    Courtroom exchanges between a Judge of the Law and Pastor Jones.

    The truth about tithing
    (unknown author)

    Judge: Mr. Jones you have been charged with multiple counts of extortion. Your crime spree covers 20 years and thousands of victims. You have defrauded people out of their money with fear and manipulation, telling them they had to tithe 10% of their income as per the LAW to your Regd. organization (called Church) and that God would bless them if they did. You also told them that if they didn’t tithe God would curse them.
    How do you plead?

    Mr. Jones: I plead not guilty your Honor,
    I have done nothing wrong. I have only preached what the Bible says. In the Bible Abraham tithed to Melchizedek and God blessed him for his faithful giving. The Bible even says he was rich in silver and gold.

    Judge: Is it not true, Mr. Jones, that in Genesis chapter 13 verse 2 the Bible says Abraham was rich with livestock, silver and gold?

    Mr. Jones: Yes, you are exactly right, that’s what I just told you.

    Judge: Ok, we read about Abraham being a rich man in chapter 13 but it is not until Genesis chapter 14 that we read about Abraham’s tithe to Melchizedek. So Abraham was already a rich man before he tithed to Melchizedek, wasn’t he?

    Mr. Jones: Yes, I suppose you are right.

    Judge: So his riches were not the result of his tithe to Melchizedek?

    Mr. Jones: No.

    Judge: Mr. Jones, you also say God blessed him for his faithful giving. How many times is it recorded that Abraham gave tithes to Melchizedek?

    Mr. Jones: Well, just once.

    Judge: So the Bible never said that he gave week after week?

    Mr. Jones: No it does not.

    Judge: Where did Abraham get the things that he gave to Melchizedek?

    Mr. Jones: Well the Bible says it was from the plunders of war?

    Judge: So you are telling me that he gave from the plunders of war?

    Mr. Jones: Yes that’s what the Bible says.

    Judge: So he basically took things that were not really his in the first place and gave them as the tithe?

    Mr. Jones: That is what the scripture seems to indicate.

    Judge: Is it recorded that he ever took anything from his own possessions and tithed them to Melchizedek or anyone else?

    Mr. Jones: I guess not

    Judge: You guess not, you are a teacher and you are only guessing, is it or is it not written that he ever gave any of his own possessions as a tithe to anyone?

    Mr. Jones: No it is not written anywhere that I have seen.

    Judge: Is it recorded as to what exactly Abraham did give Melchizedek?

    Mr. Jones: I believe it says plunder?

    Judge: So plunder could be any number of things?

    Mr. Jones: Yes, I suppose

    Judge: It could have been food, cattle, sheep, the people’s possessions or any number of things. It does not say it was all money correct?

    Mr. Jones: Yes you are correct, it does not say just money

    Judge: As a matter of fact money is never mentioned in that account at all is that correct Mr. Jones?

    Mr. Jones: Yes your Honor, money is never mentioned just goods and food and people.

    Judge: So there is no way you can say with any certainty that Abraham in fact gave Melchizedek any money at all?

    Mr. Jones: That is right.

    Judge: I only have one last question for you Mr. Jones, did God command Abraham to give this plunder tithe to Melchizedek?

    Mr. Jones: No, it appears that he did this voluntarily.

    Judge: So are you trying to tell me that because of this voluntary, one time gift by Abraham, that may not have even consisted of money, all Christians everywhere are obligated to bring 10% of their weekly paycheck to a local Regd.Organization-church?
    Considering all the evidence I would say you are beyond any shadow of a doubt guilty of deliberately trying to make the scriptures says things they have not said for financial gain.

    Mr. Jones: Ok your Honor, I can see how foolish I was to try and use the story of Melchizedeck to try and get the people to tithe money. But there are many other verses that will support my belief on tithing. Jacob said he would give God 10% of everything. I think we should follow his example.

    Judge: Let’s see what Jacob said. Please read the verse you are talking about for me Mr. Jones.

    Mr. Jones: In Genesis chapter 28 starting at verse 20 it says. Jacob vowed a vow, saying, “If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and clothing to put on, so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, and Yahweh will be my God, then this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, will be God’s house. Of all that you will give me I will surely give the tenth to you.”

    Judge: You said we should follow Jacobs example, is that right Mr. Jones?

    Mr. Jones: Yes that is right, he vowed to give a tenth and we should too.

    Judge: Let me point out one thing for you Mr. Jones, Jacob said he would Give God a tenth, ONLY if He blessed him first. So as you said previously, we should follow Jacob’s example and tell God that we will only give him a tenth if he blesses us first. Is that right?

    Mr. Jones: That is not what I meant.

    Judge: What did you mean then?

    Mr. Jones: That we should give God a tenth also.

    Judge: There you go again, trying to make the scripture say what you want it to say for your benefit. I would also like you to tell me the scriptures that say that Jacob kept his vow with God. I would also like to know where he gave the tenth to because there was no temple or levites to give it to at that time.

    Mr. Jones: I can not think of any scriptures that say where or if he ever tithed after his vow.

    Judge: It seems fairly obvious to me that Jacob made a voluntary and conditional vow to God. This in no way can be used as a reason to demand others to bring their income to you or any other place.

    Mr. Jones: I do have a few more scriptures that I believe will show that we are supposed to tithe.

    Judge: You have not said anything yet to convince me one little bit that people are obligated to tithe money to the local organizational institutions -churches and that you were justified in what you were doing. You have taken scripture and misapplied it to your beliefs and for your gain. But in order to be fair to you I will allow you to present more evidence.

    Mr. Jones: In the book of Malachi chapter 3 starting at verse 8 it says, will a man rob God? yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, In what have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the store-house, that there may be food in my house, and prove me now with this, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. So you see your Honor, we are commanded to bring the tithes into the storehouse or God will curse us.

    Judge: Answer me this Mr Jones, Who was God Speaking to here?

    Mr Jones: To the People of Israel

    Judge: Can you please read Malachi 2: 1 Please Mr Jones

    Mr Jones: Now This command is for you O PRIEST !!

    Judge: Did God stop talking to the Priest in chp. 3 Mr Jones?

    Mr Jones: No your Honor!

    Judge: Answer me this Mr. Jones, were you aware that God never required anyone to tithe money?

    Mr. Jones: No I didn’t know that.

    Judge: The tithe spoken of here was always edible products never money.

    Mr. Jones: well your Honor that is because they didn’t have money at the time so God had them tithe food instead.

    Judge: Not true, money is first mentioned in Genesis and Malachi was written hundreds of years later. God had them bring food in so that the levites, the fatherless and widows may eat and be satisfied. The tithe was used mainly to take care of people. Also notice it says in the verse you quoted, that there may be food in my house. The food was the tithe. How do you completely overlook the word food in those verses?

    Mr. Jones: I don’t know

    Judge: I also want you to know that these verses speak to nation under the Old Testament law. As you may or may not know Jesus fulfilled the law, it is no longer binding.
    Once again you have tried to completely take a scripture out of context and apply it to others for your benefit. Can you give me a single scripture where God changed the tithe from food to money?

    Mr. Jones: I do not know of any.

    Judge: So if God never changed it from food to money who did?

    Mr. Jones: Man must have.

    Judge: So far all you have done Mr. Jones, is take Old Testament scriptures out of context and try to apply it to believers under the New Covenant. Is this all the proof you have?

    Mr. Jones: I do have a New Testament scripture that will show that Jesus told us to tithe.

    Judge: Ok let me hear it.

    Mr. Jones: Jesus said in Matthew 23:23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cumin, and have left undone the weightier matters of the law: justice, mercy, and faith. But you ought to have done these, and not to have left the other undone. See Jesus said we should be tithing.

    Judge: Let me ask you a question, who was Jesus talking to?

    Mr. Jones: The scripture says the Scribes and Pharisees.

    Judge: Are you a scribe or Pharisee?

    Mr. Jones: Of course not.

    Judge: Jesus also said in that passage, you have left undone the weightier matters of the law. Are we under the law Mr. Jones?

    Mr. Jones: No.

    Judge: Why not?

    Mr. Jones: Because Jesus fulfilled it.

    Judge: When did Jesus fulfill the law?

    Mr. Jones: When He was crucified.

    Judge: So the law was still in effect until Jesus death?

    Mr. Jones: That is correct.

    Judge: I think you know where I am going with this don’t you?

    Mr. Jones: Yes your Honor. Since Jesus had not yet been crucified and the law was still binding the Pharisees were required to tithe because it was part of the law. Once the law ended, tithing ended also.

    Judge: I want you to take a look at that verse again. Also tell me, what were they tithing?

    Mr. Jones: The scripture says it was mint, dill and cumin.

    Judge: Is money mentioned?

    Mr. Jones: No it was not.

    Judge: Once again it was edible products that they were tithing, not money. Do you have anything else you would like to say?

    Mr. Jones: If people only tithed edible products like the scripture says, then how would the church survive? We have our mortgage payment, utility bills, staff salary and a host of other things that we have to pay each week. We depend on the money from the people.

    Judge:By “church” you mean your organization isn’t it Mr Jones ?
    -The need does not justify the means. In other words, just because you have all these debts does not give you the right to twist and manipulate scripture and cause people to give under fear of being cursed by God to meet your needs. Does It Mr Jones?
    In closing, let me recap a few things for you Mr. Jones.
    -The tithe was never money;
    -The tithe was an Old Testament law, which is no longer binding. When it was binding the tithe was used to take care of people, not buildings.
    – We are under a new covenant now.
    Paul instructs the Corinthian believers how they are to give. He says in second Corinthians chapter 9 verse 7, Let each man give according as he has determined in his heart; not grudgingly, or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver. So each believer is supposed to give as he or she has determined in his or her heart.
    If they determine to Give 10% well and good, If they keep aside some every week to meet this more better.If you are trying to make people give under the threat of being cursed or any other reason even blessing, you are wrong. Someone can not give cheerfully if they are being forced to give. If ‘your church can not survive on freewill offerings maybe God is not part of your church at all.
    Mr Jones, Do you intentionally put your people under a Curse or a Bondage?

    Mr Jones: Of Course Not !!

    Judge: Can you Read in context Gal 3:10-11 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them ….
    Gal 5:1-4 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage….

    Mr. Jones: I never realized all these things, I have always been taught that we had to tithe money to the local church and that is what I have always taught. I can see now that I was completely wrong. I did not study the scripture for myself, I only took mans word for it.
    Yes ‘ am guilty. I will not teach this error anymore.

    Sentencing……. All Arise …….

    The real issue of the current tithe discourse is actually not whether or not we should pay tithe: the deeper truth lies in our understanding of the spirit of tithing. When we have this understanding, it is easy to realize the place of tithing in today’s Church.

    The spirit of tithing is that of:

    TYPE 1 TITHE: Appreciation and thanksgiving (like making a vow or a thanksgiving offering) e.g. Abraham to Melchizedek (Gen 14) & Jacob to God (Gen 28:22). This is done voluntarily and not as a law. In Acts of the Apostles, the disciples (e.g. Barnabas) vowed 100% of all they had. This cannot be used to justify the practice of tithing today because it was voluntary and occasional (Abraham and Jacob were farming and reaping crops thereafter and yet there is no record of any other tithe in their lives).

    TYPE 2 TITHE: Sharing resources to achieve equity and fairness, e.g. to the Levites because they had no land to farm, & to the fatherless and Widows because they were not able to fend for themselves.

    The ancient land of Israel was shared among twelve tribes but one tribe (Levites) did not get their own share. Their share was split among the other eleven. And this is because the Levites were doing a service in the temple that was to the benefit of all the tribes (e.g. like national service). So it only made sense, in the spirit of fairness, that each of the eleven contributed to the welfare of the Levites through the Law of Tithe.

    But today, Church leaders have inheritance: they own lands, properties, businesses which they bequeath to their children and offspring. Hence collecting tithes like the Levite should not apply, in the spirit of fairness.

    Also, the practice of tithe in the Old testament was based on sharing the proceeds between the tither and the Levite in the first and second years. In the third year, the “strangers”, fatherless and widows are included in the sharing of the tithe, all in the spirit of fairness and brotherly love.

    (De 14:22-23 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God…).

    (De 14:28-29 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates: And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied…)

    Nevertheless, on the seventh year, nobody was allowed to farm the land, (but they can harvest crops that grow on their own), hence there was no tithing on the seventh year.

    The above demonstrates that the spirit of tithing is that of sharing with the Levites and the needy in the society. The picture is that of a love feast wherein the tither invites the Levites and the needy and they all share the tithe together.

    But today, this is neither the practice nor the spirit. There are people who have been tithing in their Churches for years yet they cannot afford to send their children to the schools built by the Churches. This goes against the spirit of tithing.

    In Acts OF The Apostles we see the spirit of equity wherein people like Barnabas gave 100% of their property to share with the brethren. That is the true spirit of Christianity. We were told that among the early Church nobody lacked anything.

    However, the question whether or not we should tithe in Church today is answered in Acts 15 when the Church headquarters in Jerusalem (under the leadership of James the brother of Jesus) outlined for the gentile Churches (non-Jewish Churches) what they should observe (in addition to the ten commandments).

    Acts 15: 28-29 “For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well”.

    It is interesting to note that the practice of the Law of tithing (which was tied to giving the Levites a share of their land which they forfeited) was not possible in early non-Jewish Churches outside of Israel because they had no Levites.

    CONCLUSION: What the above tells us is that TYPE 1 tithing mentioned above which is just like a voluntary vow is scriptural and can still be practiced today. But it must be allowed to be voluntary. And it is unscriptural to imply that someone will not be blessed or will die if he/she does not practice this. God’s blessing is not a commodity to be bought with tithe.

    It is interesting to see how vehemently the Church leaders claim that tithe brings God’s blessing but yet lay very little emphasis on condemnation of unrighteousness which the Bible tells us is what shortens the hand of God in our lives and makes Him deaf to our prayers. Isaiah 59:1-3.

    However, TYPE 2 tithe which is mandatory and was tied to the Jewish religion (along with so many other ordinances that go with it) is not applicable to Christianity. The Law of tithe along with the law of temple sacrifice are parts of the Law that the law of the Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus has freed us from.

    Church leaders should no longer hang the shackle of such laws on the necks of Christians; all for the love of money. Gradually, they recently started to introduce Firstfruit wherein each person gives his entire January salary to the Church. They so easily fish out Old Testament practices that give them more money but find it so hard to see the practices that encourages us to share with the poor and have the equity and general welfare of the early Acts of the apostles Church.

    The love of money is the root of all the evil that we see in Church today: in order to maintain the big tithes and offerings, the Church leaders no longer lay emphasis on repentance from sin and holy living lest they scare away the large crowds. Hence we see millions trooping into our Churches every Sunday yet our society keeps getting more and more sinful and “fantastically corrupt”.

    That is why a country like Nigeria that is ranked among the countries that have the poorest populations in the world has the richest Church leaders who spend billions on expensive cars, private jets and fancy auditoriums. Whereas many of the tithers are not able to afford the basic things of life.

    If the proceeds of tithing is shared with the needy as stipulated by our Loving Father, we would not have so many poor people in our midst today.

    God’s intention for tithing was never to burden anyone nor to make the Levites super rich, but rather to achieve equity and fairness.

    That is the spirit of tithing

    The Church needs to repent.
