The Trojan Horse Of Tithing

“The Trojan Horse Of Tithing” is a plea to Christian leaders, written from a Charismatic/Pentecostal perspective. Jonathan Brenneman exposes the inherent problems with common tithe teachings, highlighting serious issues with even so-called “grace tithing.” He demonstrates how deception starts subtly and documents the growing acceptance in mainstream Christianity of even overt teachings of salvation by tithing. Millions of people today now believe they will never even enter heaven without their tithes. Jonathan lays out 11 commandments of God that churches regularly break for their tithe tradition, arguing that no matter how much we try to dress tithe teachings up as grace, they continue to be the root of serious problems.

The arguments contained here against the modern tithe tradition are thorough, compelling, and overwhelming. The PDF is available here for free.

    When people ask questions like “Should I tithe on my gross income or my net income?,” or “where should I tithe?,” the most common answers usually have no basis at all in scripture! In fact, most tithe teachers never teach on the primary scriptural passages about tithing, the history, or the context of tithing. If they did, they would bring up the real questions we should be asking, which are about the very foundations of our modern tithe traditions.

    The Trojan Horse Of Tithing is opening people’s eyes to how much the tithe tradition is hurting the church. If this book speaks to your heart please share it with as many people as you can, and especially with leaders! The Holy Spirit is putting his finger on this issue right now and telling the churches “Get rid of the leaven!” We must remove the leaven of tithing if we are to have a pure gospel message and more accurately represent Christ to the world.
