Is tithing taught in the New Testament?

Is tithing taught in the New Testament? ANSWER. It is not repealed in the New Testament, and there is no reason why it should have to be.  But it is taught in the New Testament, Paul gives tithing as a basis for the regular Church finances in I Corinthians 9:13-14.  He declares that the gospel ministry of the church is to be supported as the Levites (Numbers 18:21); that is, out of tithes.

The Bible Makes Baptist

Pastor B.C. Henning, of North Carolina, told of a woman who, after conversion, studied the question as to which church she should join, and finally decided to join the Baptists.  She explained her decision by saying that the Baptist pastor asked her to read the New Testament and follow it. 

 The pastor of a pedo-baptist(infant baptizer) denomination brought her several books, but said nothing about the New Testament.

(B.C. Henning spoke at the gathering of the 1918 Southern Baptist Convention and shared the above story. H. Boyce Taylor, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Murray, KY printed the story in his paper the "News and Truths" in 1918, page 344.)

He asks the delivery man, "What on earth did you put on this pizza?"

The delivery man bows deeply and says, "We put on the pizza what
you ordered, pepper only."

"Local Church"

"To speak of a 'local' church is like speaking of wet water, hot fire, or cold ice.  There is no other kind, in a Biblical sense.  The use of the world 'church' to mean a meeting house, a denomination, or a universal hierarchy, or religious monstrosity, visible or invisible, is completely unscriptural.  

In the Bible the world 'church' (Greek ekklesia) means assembly, only and always.  It never refers to an unknown, unassembling, confused, and scattered multitude.  Such a 'church' exists only in the imagination of heretics desperately trying to justify their schisms."    Rosco Brong
