|Bible Question (short): Is tithe used for Min or Bldg or both?|
Question (full): How is the tithe to be used? Is the tithe for the support of the fulltime Ministers or for the purchase or up kept of the building and utilities or a combinination of both?
Did not God give the tithe to the levites as an inheirtance forever? When Moses gave instructions for the Tabernacle in the wilderness, the tribes were commanded to bring an offering for the construction material not a tithe. When Solomon built the Temple, he did not use the tithe to do it. The tribes brought offerings sufficient for the task. Did not the priest recieve offerings from the tribes to pay for the sacrifices that had to be made during the different feast? Is not the tithe to be used for the material support of fulltime Ministers of the Gospel and not to built buldings or pay utilities.
I ask these questions because Abram gave tithe to Melchisedec and the the children of Isreal gave tithe to the levites who gave tithe to Aaron. Melchisedec did not use the money for buliding projects, nor did the levites or Aaron.
