I am from NH and understand that christians are to give not tithe. I know that churches place their congregations into bondage by preaching the tithe. They also rob us of the blessing of giving. However, I belong to a church that teaches tithing. I have stated my case to the pastor that I give. I place my offering in an unmarked envelope and it is in cash. I personally put between 8-12% as an offering. My pastor accepts the way I give. He just asked for my word that I would participate in the support of the work. I agreed. I have yet to find an IFB church that trusts God for its finances. All the churches I have found teach the lie of tithing. Are there any out there that will trust God and give what He lays on our heart??
