The early church did not keep the tithe law but Christians of today are trying to keep it. Did the Lord Jesus command us to keep the tithe law? If he did, why did the early church not practice it? What was the tithe law?

God speaks to humans. God is spirit. He communicates to our spirits. We hear God with our heart. The level of communication (how much he speaks and how much we hear) between us and God depends on the depth of our relationship with him. Continue reading
A man and a woman become one flesh by the bond of marriage (Math 19.5-6). Once married, the man is the husband and the woman, the wife. Marriage must be between one man and one woman (Gen 2.20-25). Marriage must not be between people of the same blood (Lev 18). The marriage bed must not be defiled (Mat 5.27-28). The marriage must not be dissolved except for sexual immorality or illegitimate marriages (Mat 5.32). The primary purpose of marriage is raising a family unto the glory of God.

“Now there were false prophets among the people, just as there also will be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many people will follow their immoral ways, and because of them the way of truth will be maligned. In their greed they will exploit you with deceptive words.

The devil uses false teachers to hit and attack the church, so that many will be lost and never get to find the way that leads to heaven. Many will follow their ways and end up in perdition.
The Mask of False Teachers
The devil’s teachers mask themselves with some righteous deeds:
They “believe” “Jesus Christ”
They preach “Jesus Christ” Continue reading
A sick body is better than a sick heart.
Only circumstances will reveal to you whom to trust.
In times of real need, “friends” turn away, but He is always there. Continue reading
Be careful how you deal with people.
Do not say, “why should I care about them, it is their trouble”
You see, God will judge us not by how many children or jobs or certificate we had. He will judge us by how we treated other people: our neighbor, our colleague, our children, our wives, our husbands, our children, our fathers, our enemies, our siblings. Continue reading
When wickedness grew on the earth, He sent a flood and destroyed all humans except Noah and his family. Think of the babies, the pregnant women, the beautiful women and the strong men who perished in the flood. None was shown mercy.
When the sin of Sodom & Gomorrah grew, He sent fire from heaven and burnt to ashes the entire city. None was spared except Lot and his family. They were eating, drinking, and marrying when the fire came and devoured them. Continue reading
