Of course Christians are not bound by the Law of Moses which was “nailed to the cross” but Christians are by command and example under the NT to “lay by him in store” to support the ministry and help the poor “upon the first day of the week”. Christians are not limited by a “tithe” – they can give more or they can give less as long as they do it with a “cheerful heart” – “for God loveth a cheerful giver…”
