    Dear Roger: Of the hundreds of detractors who have written my regarding my tithing paper, not one of them had a clue as to what tithing was and how it was done. And this friend using this set of Scriptures is no different.

    [1]  Poor people and widows were NEVER required to tithe.

    [2]  MONEY was never tithed (read every single Scripture on tithing for proof of this).

    [3]  Tithes were never "CAST into the TREASURY."  The treasury was for voluntary contributions, NOT FOR TITHES.  They did not cast farm produce and cattle "into the TREASURY."  Where do they come up with such unscriptural, foolish, nonsense?

    This "poor widow" was not "tithing" money. These charlatans will do or say anything to deceive people into believing that money is to be tithed and that tithing is for the New Covenant Church.

    God be with you,

    Ray
