The Ten Percent Gospel Or Malachi Syndrome - Poem by Richard Merrell

Tithe, Tithe, Tithe!
Your money give to God
Tithe, Tithe, Tithe!
Will your God you rob?

Mix LAW and FAITH together
And set a precedent,
Mix LAW and FAITH together
But start at ten percent!

For me to tithe? it's not of faith
It's like - not eating ham,
For me to tithe? it's not of faith
Don't make the gospel a sham!

Give Freely, Freely, Freely
For, in the Christ you are made alive,
Give Freely, Freely, Freely
And make His ROOD your tithe! ! !

'Freely you have received, freely give.'

Matthew 10: 7-16; Acts 4: 36,37

(The tithe in Malachi was food, somewhere along the line it's been changed to money, most likely
by 'money hungry' pastors who see themselves a as type of Levitical Priesthood, and live like
parasites off the sheep, the 34th of Ezekiel says it all.)
