But The Great Question Remains: How Shall We Win Our Loved Ones To Christ?

1. We must be sure of our own right relationship to Christ and them. If we are dead and dry in our own experience, we cannot help them to a real, bright and clear Christian experience. If we are earth-minded, careless and prayerless, we have nothing to offer them until we get right ourselves. We mus... Read More

Christ Versus Moses

12. Excuse Twelve: "I do not tithe because the law of tithing belongs to the law of Moses which was annulled by Christ." We answer: the 'tithing law did not originate or end in the law of Moses. It was brought into existence because of a need which existed long before Moses; and the need still exist... Read More

God First

4. Excuse Four: "I pay my own bills and then tithe what is left." Your own bills are not the Lord's bills. This reminds us of the colored boy who asked for the rind after he had been refused a piece of the melon, and received the selfish reply, "Dey ain't gwine ta be no rine." How can a man tithe wh...

Honest With God?

Excuse Six: "Yes, I pledged myself to tithe when the others did, but I guess I won't payit," or "I'll make them think I pay it." (If church treasurers could only tell all they know). Is there anything in what you say? Do you make a solemn vow before God, in the light of his Word, in the house of pra... Read More

How To Catch Up

2. Excuse Two: "I got behind with my bills and want to catch up before I begin tithing."Can an honest man rob his best friend, God, to pay his bills?

How To Count Ten

13. Excuse Thirteen: "Tithing may be all right, but I just can't understand it."

How To Get Saved

How may we get saved and know that, we are saved? The greatest question ever asked by a human being was asked by the Philippian Jailer, when he asked Paul and Silas, "What must I do to be saved?"

Little Or Much

3. Excuse Three: "I am just not able to tithe." Not able to obey God? Does God make unjust and impossible laws for his creatures? Is he a tyrant or a God of love? Does God rob poor people of the blessing of giving? "It is more blessed to give than to receive." The justness of the tithing law is in t... Read More

Mocking God

9. Excuse Nine: "Oh, I give God all. I do not believe in just giving a part." This sounds good, but when did you turn it over to God? How do you treat God when he sends around the collection plate? Some do like the Wicked Husbandmen; they send God's servants away empty while they themselves use the ... Read More

No Credit System

5. Excuse Five: "I tithe but I borrow it for my own use and pay it back when I do not need it." This is the sure road to backsliding from tithing, and eventually, from grace. While you are using the tithe for your own interests, you and the cause suffer. The tithe belongs to God's storehouse, -- the... Read More

It is a divine command to meet a spiritual necessity and cannot be annulled or changed. Did you get along any better spiritually?... Read More

Parasites

7. Excuse Seven: "I tithe, but I pay where I please, -- to kinsfolk, friends, sick people, etc."The tithe is not yours; then what right do you have to distribute it except for and through theChurch? "Bring ALL the tithe into the STOREHOUSE." It is your responsibility to take care of your own relativ... Read More

Personal Responsibility

8. Excuse Eight: "I would tithe, but I do not handle the money at our house." This may be true in some cases, but would you tithe it if you had a chance? Do you tithe the amounts that you do get? The wife has equal rights with the husband in the tithe if she keeps the home while he keeps the shop or... Read More
