Sunday Morning Stickup: What Your Pastor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Tithes
by David Lee
Truth and Error will forever be rivals in the Christian Community concerning the issue of tithes. In this instance, the individual Christian is faced with the question of whether or not tithing is a New Testament requirement. The practice of tithing has been widely accepted for centuries in the modern church realm. Unfortunately, successfully getting the masses to accept the practice of tithing is not the end of this matter.
Questions, research, articles and published books continue to surface within the Christian Community questioning the validity of tithing. Books such as “The Tithing Hoax” by R. Renee and Cynthia Harper, “The Tithe That Binds” by Rory Moore and now “Sunday Morning Stickup: What Your Pastor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Tithes” by David Lee have made such a bold, uncompromising and unapologetic entrance into book stores that the issue of tithing has to be dealt with. Tithing is a practice that many pastors support and uphold on a weekly basis. They also hold their members accountable to this practice. Many pastors continue to use Malachi 3:8-9 to justify tithing, while other pastors interject their own commentary to put fear about tithing in their members.
In David Lee’s Sunday Morning Stickup: What Your Pastor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Tithes he answers those unsettled questions concerning tithes and puts the book of Malachi in perspective. Lee uses Chapter 1 titled “You Need Contentment” as the foundation for the rest of the book. Living above our means is in direct disobedience to God’s word. According to I John 2:15-17 it says “Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the father in you. For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.”
Lee says “At the root of our discontentment and the rapidly degrading moral social consciousness, can be found the source to why so many individuals are wantonly frustrated. He also says that the preaching and teaching of God’s word has changed and that many of our pastors have fallen in love with money. This love has negatively impacted how they deliver the morning message, the decisions they make concerning church business and how they handle God’s people.” Lee further states that we need the kind of balance that will allow us to live modestly in this life, to the extent that it does not circumvent our hope to live eternally in the next.
According to 1 Timothy 6:6 godliness with contentment is great gain. God wants us to be content no matter what circumstances we face. This state of contentment I believe is where we will find happiness and joy. This happiness and joy is free of wanton frustration that David Lee talks about in his book. As you continue to read Lee’s book, you will learn in Chapter 7 how to recognize the characteristics of a Good Shepherd versus a Greedy Preacher.
Sunday Morning Stickup: What Your Pastor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Tithes will surpass your expectations with knowledge and research on the topic of tithing. It is evident that Mr. Lee has done his research and has taken a prayerful approach when writing this book to dispel the error of a very important subject.
