We pay taxes on our government and businesses charged us for the services rendered, churches should also do the same in the form of tithing to support its own infrastructure. This is how tithing is being justified except that churches is not a government or a business nor it should be modeled as such, the closest structure that a church could relate to is a family. No father in a family will charge his own sons or daughter for taxes. Neither will sons/daughter who had shown love or was taught love will not voluntarily render help or support to their parents or any member of the family. Every believer of Christ is part of the family in Christ and, like the king on earth who does not charge taxes within his own family, our father in heaven also does not charge taxes in a form of tithing on His own children in Christ.
The Bible Said:
“He said, “Yes.” And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their sons or from strangers?” Peter said to Him, “From strangers.” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free.” Matthew 17:25-26 NKJV
