  • I havent recently but at times in my life I have. I believe we are called to do this and I think I have seen the money come back around to me when I have tithed.

  • we tithe/give/offer more than 10%. we do so regularly, and it is applied to the budget before anything else.

  • I don't (I'm a Buddhist), but I think this in interesting - I have a Christian friend that tithes 10% to his relatively small church, it is the first thing he budgets for, and he does so happily. He gives extra when he can. I have a Catholic friend that doesn't tithe, and complains about how they are always trying to "take money out of his pocket." He sends his kids to Catholic school, but doesn't support his spiritual community in any way.

    I always thought that Catholics were supposed to tithe, that it was part of their teachings?

  • We too donate time to the church and hubby plays in the church band and I help organize lots of events for the kids in the church - neither of us get compensated for what we do. We do give monetary offerings, but not to the point of giving a certain percentage. Honestly, I see how the church needs to be supported, but ours is large and brings in thousands each week, I think they are doing just fine.
