God's tithe is simply that - God's tithe!! I am returning what He has designated as His. I can only tithe to His church and I can give only after I have tithed.
Shouting, quoting Scripture and recognizing who Jesus is does not make one a child of god. the same lips that shouted "Praise Him" shortly would scream "crucify Him!" Lord let my shout reflect my walk.
v. 11 What would Jesus see in our church if He "looked around carefully at everything?" Would He return to the next Worship Service with a whip or with a smile???
Sin to a fool is fun...He never sees its death and separation from God
