Quoting Chuck Bass:" True but the church was corrupt, it wasn't supposed to be part of the actual religion. Nothing about giving money to the church or tithing is in the Bible."
There are MANY verses. It's all about interpretation though. I believe 10% doesn't have to be money, or given to the church, and neither does the church I currently attend, thank goodness. But many, MANY churches do. You wouldn't believe how many churches will pull you aside to speak to you about the importance of tithing f they do not think you are giving enough
Or, maybe you would.
