For Part 3 in his series on giving (continued from Part 1 on May 8 and Part 2 on Aug. 14 last year), Dr. J. Evan Kreider examined the ways that the early church raised funds for the poor in their midst, the needy in other churches, and for missionary works. According to each person’s financial ability, they were called to generously send relief to feed their fellow believers. Failing to provide for family members earned special condemnation, while enthusiastic donations were lauded. Tithing a fixed percentage of our income is not supported by New Testament scripture, but rather, let each of us give as we have decided in our heart, not out of regret or compulsion (Cor. 9:7).
