Are Christians commanded to tithe?

Posted by Stephen Witmer on October 19th, 2017

I’ll be preaching this coming Sunday on Malachi 3.6-12, a great passage on giving. Preaching on an Old Testament passage about tithing raises an important question: are Christians commanded to tithe? For one of the best articles I’ve seen on this question, check out Tom Schreiner’s Gospel Coalition article ‘7 Reasons Christians Are Not Required to Tithe.’ For a counter-point article (which I don’t find as persuasive), see William Barcley’s Gospel Coalition article ‘The Bible Commands Christians to Tithe.’
