Tithing In Conscience

In the early centuries of the Church the people were dependent upon the network to sustain them in the hard times of Roman and Judaic collapse. Today, many Churches preach tithing, but send the people to the Pharaohs and Caesars of the world for their benefits.

The tithing of the Church in the wilderness was a matter of freewill offerings, and tithing to the ministers of ten families was according to their service.1 There was no king in Israel, but every man followed his own God given conscience as we have seen in Judges 17. Every man was king in his own family and ruler of his own possessions according to the will of God.2 Without the virtue of the God of heaven this would be chaos, but any other way would become bondage and oppression.

The nation was commanded to love their neighbor as themselves,3 to not covet their goods or their rights within the family by taking away choice through the agency of man made governments. The Kingdom of God is a government based on faith, hope, and charity not like the Hellenized, Romanized,4 and Babylonian governments of the world.

Those Churches who fail to preach the Kingdom disregard Christ. Those who take the tithe and send the children of God to the Qorban of Roman systems to be bound under tribute, as they once were in Egypt, betray their holy office. The ministers, often called the Church, have failed to preach the simple Gospel of the Kingdom and serve the people and tend to the daily ministration.

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say,

Repent: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” Matt. 4:17

Service that Serves

In most churches today you will see five factors: prayer, music, oration (sermon), collection, and benediction.

In about AD 150, Justin Martyr wrote the Emperor Antoninus Pius in defense of the Christian faith and allegiance to Christ:

“And the wealthy among us help the needy... they who are well to do, and willing, give what each thinks fit; and what is collected is deposited with the president, who succours the orphans and widows and those who, through sickness or any other cause, are in want, and those who are in bonds and the strangers sojourning among us, and in a word takes care of all who are in need.” (Ch. 65-67)

The Church had a job and a purpose. It was not merely speakers of the word, but doers. The Eucharist was sacks of grain and loaves of bread daily freely given to sustain the needy out of love.

We also see the Didache stating:5

“Therefore, elect for yourselves bishops and deacons worthy of the Lord, men who are meek and not lovers of money, true and approved, for they also perform for you the ministry of the prophets and teachers.” Didache 15:1

These ministers were not like the ones we see today. They taught us the message of Christ with real service and loaves of bread like Christ and Moses did in the wilderness. The early Church, even after the divergence of Constantine, still took care of the people through intimate congregations who came together in the thanksgiving, which was called the Eucharist of Christ.

They supported one another through faith, hope, and charity. They would not eat of the civic altars of false benefactors. They stood fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made them free. The true Church remained a “pure religion” unspotted by that world.

“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.” 1 Corinthians 10:21

Things Change

The chore pisco pus was an assistant to an overseer to keep the communion between the congregation effectual. Over the centuries, this special communications officer for the government of the people was degenerated into the director of the choir.

The communion of the first-century Church was substantive, not merely “crumbs”. They were filling the true physical and spiritual needs of the people, not merely lip service. Christians depended upon the freewill charity of each other, not the entitlements of Rome or the synagogue of Satan.6

They were a nation of peculiar people working in a vast network, dealing with real problems, in real practical ways, on local and international levels of charity.

“And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth [economic depression] throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.” Acts 11:28

The Church was organized from the ground up, trained and prepared for the inevitable decay and collapse of the Roman world system. They knew the unrighteous mammon would fail.

“Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea: Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.” Acts 11:29-30

Here the apostles were bond servants appointed by Christ to be ministers of ministers to the congregation of the people bound by faith in love. In order to discern exactly how all this worked together for good, we must explore those ancient times and the fallen character that brings us back to the same mire.

But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog [is] turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” 2 Peter 2:22

1Numbers 7:5 “Take [it] of them, that they may be to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; and thou shalt give them unto the Levites, to every man according to his service.”

2Leviticus 25:10 “And ye shall... proclaim liberty throughout [all] the land unto all the inhabitants thereof:... and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.”

3Leviticus 19:18 “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I [am] the LORD.”

5The Didache mentioned by Eusebius, c.324, Teachings of the Apostles following the books recognized as canonical (Historia Ecclesiastica III, 25).

6Revelation 2:9 “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and [I know] the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but [are] the synagogue of Satan.”

The Higher Liberty

BKTHL.jpg

The Higher Liberty is an iconoclastic examination of Romans 13 and other specious teachings which are an indictment the modern Church revealing a fuller gospel of the Kingdom for this world and the next. The consistent warnings of the prophets throughout the entire Bible and the purpose of the Church appointed by Christ as one form of government shines new light on modern apostasy. The simple truth of how God made you to be free souls, serving Him in Spirit and in Truth may bear witness in your hearts and minds.

Much of what is in this book will allow you to see the truth of the gospel in comparison to those who do contrary to the ways of God and make His word to none effect and have brought you back into a bondage to the gods many of the world through damnable heresies. Arm yourselves with His truth that will set you free. chapter-by-chapter or Order

About this Book 167

This modern system of government welfare is directly against the words of Christ for Christians and makes the word of God to none effect.

We should attend to the Weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith which include caring for the needs of our neighbors and the widows and orphans of our society through Pure Religion in matters of health, education, and welfare. We are NOT to do so by the Covetous Practices of modern governments.

The Way of Christ was like neither the way of the world nor the governments of the gentiles who depend on benefactors who exercise authority. Christ's ministers and true Christians do not depend upon systems of social welfare that force the contributions of the people like the corban of the Pharisees which made the word of God to none effect. Many people have been deceived to go the way of Balaam and the Nicolaitan and out of The Way of Christ.

The Christian conflict of the first century Church appointed by Christ was because they would not apply to the fathers of the earth for benefits but instead relied upon a voluntary network providing a daily ministration to the needy of society through Faith, Hope, and Charity by way of freewill offerings of the people, for the people, and by the people through the perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies according to the ancient pattern of Tuns or Tens.

The modern Christians are in need of repentance.


"Follow me!" —Jesus the Christ.
