    A tithe is a tenth of one's increase (in today's world, that's income).

    The principle is that you are giving back a tenth to God for what you are able to do (in earning an income).

    Where you give it is up to you, especially if you are not a member of any church. You could consider organizations like the Red Cross or any of the religious-based charities, like the Salvation Army, etc.

    When you give it is up to you, but if you are looking at using it for a tax-deduction, just make sure you obtain a receipt for your "donation" to that organization (church or otherwise).

    If you are born of God you are a member of the CHURCH which is the body of Christ.

    If you are in membership to a local church then you usually can give as the LORD has prospered you.

    Saving past tithes is up to you. Give 50% if you want. There is no New Testament command to Christians to give 10 per cent.

    I would be concerned about gathering ... with those that are born of God though.

    Psalms 50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth [his] conversation [aright] will I shew the salvation of God. {that...: Heb. that disposeth his way}

    all the best

    The LORD desires worship and giving alms is according to how the LORD has moved your heart and taught you from his word .......... get into a fellowship first ... God wants your faithful testimony far more than your money.

  • Tithes are a free will offering......... if a congregation mandates payment..... look else where for the fellowship of those of The True Church

    I hope you are new to the English language. If English is your native language and you are older than 12 right now, you need to seek schooling immediately.

    All I can say is save your money and buy a tutor. No need to give your money to a church.

    The bible records that only Jews tithed, never Gentiles! Romans 2:14 says that the Gentiles were not under the law.

  • We are called to be generous; just give.
