Tithing

Does anyone think donations of NEW items or food to those who need it would be a form of tithing?

  • yes b/c you are using your money to buy things to give to others. i also think volunteering your time (cause time is money haha) is tithing.

  • I'm going to go against the grain here and say no. I feel there is a difference between tithing and charity. Tithing is a religious obligation of 10% towards the church to help with costs they incur. It's is not charity. While I do believe one should happily do both

  • I agree with kayslay. That's why it's called tithes AND offerings. The term tithe literally means a tenth. Anything you give above that is considered an offering. I think that food, clothing, and the like would be considered an offering.
