    Mandatory tithing made the Church more inclined to let the wealthy slide on things the poor would be punished or excommunicated for.
    It's not good for churches to hammer into people that they are not in good graces because they aren't paying a tithe, which is why for the most part they have universally desisted doing.

    The Ezekiel Temple is the temple during the time of the Millennial Kingdom.

    Levitical Law is the law of offerings and sacrifices found in Leviticus, which makes it part of the Law of Moses.
    How do you place the Ezekiel Temple during a Millennial Kingdom?

    It sounds like it is not put anywhere. Do you object?

    This is what most Jews over look. Tithing is a tenth and went to the priests. But just as important they owed a tenth to the government. And they owed twelve percent of their income straight to the poor around them.

    Can you provide Scripture for all of this? What government?

    You should never ask God why. Just believe and submit to His Word.

Now who is taking more than they have a right to?
    Wrong! 10 percent of your income, and 20 percent if you sell something.

    Yes, Israel had an income tax system. But I can't remember the verses off the top of my head. searching a tenth and a fifth might help.

    Then why do you say 12%?
