    It is fine if you have no opinion; I just canít tell that this is the case.
    Since you are not listening to what I said, I will not continue to waste my time.

    Are you saying that you think only farmers and ranchers gave?

    I have been listening.

    Are you saying that you don’t believe in giving to a local church or to the poor?

    No, what I said was that only food products were subject to tithing.

    What did the Pharisees tithe?

    To whom do tithes belong?

    Do Jews currently tithe?

    Really?

    Is there any scripture that says they didn't?

    Did Jesus Christ teach the tithe?

    Did Paul teach about giving and receiving?

    Were they hypocrites?
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2

    Pro scripture = Protestant

    Do you not know the law?

    You might read Deuteronomy 16:16.

    "Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you." (Deuteronomy 16:17)

    There is no "appropriate level of giving" for your hypothetical couple.

    What is appropriate is to meet whatever need the Lord puts on your heart...even if it takes your last dime. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Of course, I'm only talking about those who walk by faith....which isn't you, is it?

    Law is not faith. You can ask the same question until hell freezes over, and you'll still miss the mark.

    All interesting questions. Perhaps someone knows the answer and can share.

    It does sound like you don’t think craftsmen tithed. I would be surprised if that were the case.

    You seem angry, while I am just seeking a thoughtful discussion.

    You always read anger into my posts. Proving, not "seeming to prove" that you are not as discerning as you think you are.

    So you are saying the appropriate level is whatever God puts on their heart.

    That is a reasonable answer, thanks.

    There are people who do want some guidance, to help them be more certain about what they believe they hear in their hearts.

    It will be nice if you aren’t angry.

    Do you know anyone who gave away her last dime?
