Windows on Finance Part 1
There is a line of teaching floating around Christendom that says that if you have financial problems, just tithe or give what you have to God and He will sort the rest out for you. I know people who have (under guidance from their pastors) tried to tithe to get themselves out of debt but because their finances were in such a mess all they did was put their tithe on their credit card each week and worsen their already overburdened debt problem i.e. they just got into more debt! They thought they were doing the right thing, they desperately wanted to be out of debt but they were just making things worse for themselves – tithing was not helping their finances!
