Before I get started I must premise this section by telling you that this is one of the most dangerous and destructive false teaching of the Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination.Teaching tithing is absolutely unbiblical and nothing more than mind control manipulation.
The Independent Fundamental Baptist Denomination makes that mistake of stopping at verse 21.
If you continue reading in that chapter you will see that tithes were food products from the land of Israel which were to be used to compensate the Levites for serving God in the Tabernacle as a replacement for their lost land inheritance rights in Israel (see Numbers ).
If the Westboro Baptist Church does picket at the funerals of the Dallas police officers killed in this week’s attack, they will almost certainly be met with counter-protesters.
The church has been met with opponents at all of its large events, including last month in Orlando where a group of LGBT allies formed a Facebook group called Westboro Counter Protesters to share information and protect the funerals.
There has been a lot of good information on the truth about tithing made available online and I will provide some links at the bottom of this page to web sites that I have read and agree with.
The purpose of this page is not to go into a lot of detail about tithing.The Mosaic Laws were specifically for the Israelites during that time period.The Old Covenant was only meant for the Israelites until the New Covenant began at the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.We can see by reading Numbers -21 in context what the tithes were for.Numbers 18 is cataloging the duties of the priests and the Levites and showcasing what was done to support them as they worked in the Tabernacle.“It’s never been OK to be gay and it’s never going to be OK to be gay, no matter how much the spirit of the times calls for the popularity of that sin.” While the church has filled its Twitter page with rhetoric about the Dallas shootings and plans to travel to Dallas, the church has not yet said if it would picket the memorial services.
