We are sons of God, therefore free from tithing... However, the commandment of sharing your wealth was never abolished. Much more is expected from you as Jesus taught. It is part of being a good steward. As steward, you will grow in faith and responsibilities. There will be some circumstance in life that you will likely give much more than you would in tithing.
Stay away from all TV evangelist. Be cautious of Web site with a ‘donation button’, which entail you to give “ if you are lead by the Holy Spirit.” Stay away from any ministries of any kind and anyone asking for money claiming that in return God will fulfill your unanswered prayers, especially healing. You cannot buy favour from God. There is a reason God doesn’t answer your pray. “Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that at the right time he may lift you up,” Peter 5:6. Stop sinning and repent. Unconfessed sin hinders your relationship with God. Blessing is being held back.

Paul teachings have nothing to do with tithing. If it is in your heart to give a tithe in offering, do so by understanding that it is your choice to do so. It could be more it could be less. It is a scam to use these verses to implement tithing doctrine and offering from Christians. Those who do are lying to Christians are stealing from them. These verses have everything to do with applying the rule of good stewardship and nothing to do about giving to the church. We share all things with the needy within the church and with unbelievers. It serves the purpose to shine our light and to confess the gospel. It is to prepare us for our destiny to reign as kings and priest in the Kingdom of God. Therefore, let us shine in this dark world. If your desire is for a renewal and healing for your nation, this is the way according to the rule of good stewardship.

"always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear," 1 Peter 3:15... God is doing the calling...let Him bring them to you.
