Discussion for Amos 4

  • A disciple
    A lot of attention on Tithing and Offering; but what did Jesus really ever say about it? Tithing in the old times could be done by supporting the Ministers of the LORD according to however God has prospered you; or by supporting the poor, the widow, the orphan, and the Levite within your gates. At harvest time, at Payday; how you do is your business! Only NEVER AS PAYMENT for Church membership!
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    Tithing are for Jews under mosiac law I'm under liberty I give what God puts on my heart to give I give cheerfully
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    Tithing we're for the Jews under the mosiac law I'm under liberty and wants every man to give as he purposeth in his own heart. God loveth a cheerful giver. You can't be cheerful if your told you have to tithe!
  • John Gibson
    Just curious, from verse 4, should we be giving tithes every three years or as often as there is a 'harvest'?
  • Ann Craddock
    Message for Lurshai,
    Glad to know that you acknowledge that there is GOD, whew!, secondly, I read that you ignore him daily and you seem high- minded WOW! Please read this scripture John 15:5, the latter part says this "without him, you can do nothing", we do nothing without GOD's help or allowance. if you die like you are, you will not spend eternity in his kingdom. Very concerned about you.
  • Ann Neal
    GOD hates sin, he wants us to live holy and righteous before him so that we can receive good things from him, he smiles and rewards us for obedience, but disobedience continuously, brings forth punishment and death, it is best to walk in obedience.
