Ken Wytsma :: Is tithing an artifact of ancient culture?

  • Despite the fact that ancient culture was different and modern government performs many of the roles of the ancient church through taxation, it is necessary for our spiritual health that we recognize a portion of all we have belongs to the Lord. “A big part of that is to cleanse my heart,” says Ken Wytsma, President of Kilns College and Pastor of Antioch Church in Bend, OR. When we don’t set aside a portion of our resources specifically for God, we can fall into the habit of “spending our tithe” on things that make us feel good, rather than at least involving God in the conversation about where our generosity should go.
