Moses Law, Tithing..

I have read that Tithing is PREACHED as a "timeless moral law" & tithing didnt start until the 1800s. It was an old law, like animal sacrifice. Christians should give what they could & to give it eagerly (2 corinthians 8:12).

My husband on the other hand says this is wrong. We tithe because it is Moses Law & we should still follow the laws of Moses...

So should we still follow Moses Law? Is Tithing part of Moses Law?
(im reading more into right now, just wanted to ask the question in the mean time to get opinions)

  • Tithing is a part of Mosaic Law, but predates Moses and was first mentioned when Abraham paid a tithe was paid to Melchizedek in Genesis 14.

    So, it was codified by Mosaic Law, but is something done as a matter of honoring God.

    But even looking just at Mosaic Law as a whole wasn't thrown out, just the parts superseded by Jesus' sacrifice. We no longer needed an atoning sacrifice; so the laws of sacrifice are out.

  • I think tithing goes back WAY before the 1800s.
