Why does the church ask for 10% of your income when there is no place in the bible to prove it?

Places where tithing is recommended...Every third year a tenth of the agricultural increase is to be given to the priests and the poor.

Deuteronomy 14:27 And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.
28 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay it up within thy gates: 29 And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest.
Deuteronomy 26:12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third year, which is the year of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that they may eat within thy gates, and be filled;

Tithe is of agricultural origin. Leviticus 27:30 Tithe rules for priests. Numbers 18:24
Rules for eating the tithe. Deuteronomy12:17 Tithes to priests. 2Chronicles 31:4,Nehemiah 10:37, Nehemiah 12:44, Nehemiah 13:5 For those people who love to boast about how much they give...Tithing is not to boast about.
Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Luke 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Update: Okay so I cut and paste Big deal! just prove why you should give your hard earned money to some man who claims that God needs it. If he is God then he can make his own money.
