I finished the book and all I can say is that David Lee stumbled onto a revalation of the tithe that has been hidden since the sixth century. The author takes a theological position that Christ became the last final perfect tithe for us on the cross. After spending three years studying the tithe, I personally know for a fact that David Lee is correct about the tithe not being money but food. Reading the book with an open mind will ultimately cause one to have to make a theological decision about what is truth and what is false concerning age old question of tithing for New Covenant believers and followers Yeshua. David Lee does not back down from stating that Christ is our tithe and that no believer should be afraid or live in fear because Christ is the tithe not your money. This book will challenge you to study if you are open. If not, you'll continue to wear colored glasses concerning the tithe and not see Christ as the tithe. He argues that the tithe doctrine is so powerful it has rendered some powerless to question its authenticity. David Lee questions the mondern tithe doctrine and then procedes to dismantle it piece by piece. David Lee issues a challenge to all pastors to come clean about the tithe and put the focus back on people not money so the Church can florish like it was meant too. The book gives an inside look at preacher greed and discusses the causes of ministry excess and how it impact poor people in the church.Read more ›
This book is a passionate plea to quit supporting a prosperity gospel. Tithing is no longer scriptural, and your tithes aren't used in a scriptural manner anyway. David Lee wrote the book "out of obedience to a mandate from God on my life," and I can't emphasize the word "passionate" enough. David has had it with misuse of money. He misses the good old days of revivals and cozy corner churches, not megachurches and Rolexes. Man, what power the church had back then, when the Spirit ruled the house! REAL laying on hands, REAL healings. Thank you, Jesus!
The downside of this passion is that it manifests itself in condescending reader participation (exercises and instructions and pleas to read the book over and over), and David sometimes comes across as preachy or as a bit of an alarmist. So the book's atmosphere didn't really gel with me.
Yet the topics were worth reading. The New Testament shows no evidence whatsoever of tithing, and in fact, Paul boasted that he provided the gospel without pay, and supported himself by working on the side. Paul, of course, had no church building. Moreover, tithing in the Old Testament wasn't about money; it was about goods, which would feed the priests and the hungry. That doesn't mean we shouldn't give freely of our time, money and goods! It just means obligatory, guilt-inducing tithing no longer has a place.
So what changed from the Old Testament to the New Testament? Jesus. Tithing in the O.T. is symbolic of Jesus, who would offer his life on the cross as a living tithe. See Hebrews chapters 7 through 10. An interesting theology, which I hadn't considered before.
So if you don't find the style off-putting, read the book and share in David's indignation.
